We were lucky to get an exchange through Interval International. We arrived early (check in is at 4). Scott was fantastic and told us to feel free to walk around the resort while they made sure the rooms were ready. We went out on the fishing dock and watched the fish swim by (even saw a 3 foot snook cruising... More

We stayed a week here and it was most relaxing and very well kept. Beautiful beach area with seclusion and bbq grills. Very nice on the bay as well. And very very quiet. One of the best values and properties on the key. Highly recommend this place. Staff is excellent and most accommodating.

We own at Little Gull and most often use our week in October. Its great to meet people who come and rent available units, they come back again and again. The beach is quiet private and clean. Longboat Key is not commercial, very quiet, with beautiful views, great places to eat and a great way to get away from the... More

The resort is a great place to rest, relax and have some time on the beach. The facilities are above average but dated. Wifi is available but very slow. We enjoyed our stay and would like to come back.

This was a very quiet and private cottage. The beach was within walking distance and it was private too. The room was very clean and equipped with everything you need just like home. The kids loved it too.

We spent a week at Little Gull over Memorial Day weekend, and even though the cottages were full it still felt very private and homey. Staying on the gulf side was great. We would go down to the beach in the morning. Head back to our cottage during the heat of the day. Then go back down in the evening... More

This was our 1st visit to Little Gull although we have stayed at a sister property farther down Longboat Key on a previous holiday. We arrived after the office was closed but located our key as we'd been advised. We stayed in cottage 12 overlooking the pool on the bay side. It was large and airy with 2 bedrooms and... More

This place is so cute!!! A lot of the people who stay here are timeshare owners of this place and they come back the same week every year... So it is kind of a community of people who know each other already. While there are some rooms/cabins across the street, the walk to the beach is nothing and the beach... More

Little Gull is divided by the main road through Longboat Key. This means that is is both on the Gulf side and the bay side. We were in the Bay side, which was a little disappointing. The gulf side offers a much more convivial atmosphere, right on the beach. The accommodation itself was clean and comfortable with good size rooms.... More

My husband and I rented last Nov at Little Gull and loved it so much we became owners. We just spent a week there and hated to leave. The cottages are immaculate with new kitchens and baths. The employees are very friendly and helpful - they want it to be a great vacation! We spent lazy days walking the beach,... More
