It's our first time staying here. We meet the Debbie ( manager)and Scott ( front desk )who are so friendly and helpful The cottages are well maintained clean and decorated nicely. It's steps away from beach. You can even see dolphins swimming. We would recommend this resort you can't be disappointed. Great stay would stay here again

We spent 7 nights in Unit 14 at Little Gull with our grandkids---twin boy and girl, 10 years old. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there and found the unit to be very comfortable. Scott, in the office, was very helpful. WE WOULD DEFINITELY GO BACK.

Been around the World. One of the best vacations ever. Not Fancy, Clean and friendly. Location, Location, Location. We were right on the Beach. Great Staff. We had an issue with our hot water heater. They went out of their way to accommodate us. Great restaurants within 2 mins. walking distance.

Little Gull is heaven on earth!!! We arrived early and Scott was gracious enough to let us check in early :). Thank you Scott! We stayed in unit 4 it was clean and had everything we needed. The beach was just steps away. This is the best place we have been too. We will definitely return. Thank you Little Gull... More

We stayed in one of the beach side cottages, WOW. You could walk right out to the Little Gull's private beach which is steps away from your front door. The Little Gull offers everything you would want from a beach vacation, even your own private fireplace for cozy evenings. Awake to relaxing ocean waves as you enjoy coffee on your... More
