This resort truly has everything you could ever want...a tropical beach, multiple grills, a wonderful pool, game room, laundry facilities, playground, and a boat dock for those travelling with a vessel. It is located on Longboat Key and from the moment you drive in, you are winding through a quaint brick street surrounded by shade trees. Mother nature abounds, with... More

An awesome place with the real Florida lifestyle. Everyone in our family lives on the ocean in different parts of Florda already, but we come back every single year to Little Gull to "get away." It's quiet, not overloaded with tourists, friendly staff, and close to fantastic nightlife. The beach is perfection, and the rooms are the perfect balance of... More

This is my sixth year coming here and the staff and service has always been great! There is so much to do in the area with Shopping, restaurants, botanical gardens And Ringling Museum. One week is just not enough to see it all!

Thanks so much to the staff at Little Gull for making this and outstanding vacation memory for both my father and myself. The amenities are amazing and this is such a friendly resort.

I had to come back again to rave over this place, even though I don't usually do multiple reviews of establishments. I think these people know exactly what it means to need a vacation, and not one in a sterile environment with no attention to livability. It feels like home here. We come once a year if possible, but had... More

My family and I spent a week at Little Gull in June. We had a very nice time. The facilities are really nice and the beach is lovely. The BBQs work very well. The pool is clean and warm. Just be sure to bring some bug spray. I would recommend Little Gull to anyone interested in staying on Longboat Key.... More

I have stayed at Little Gull several times. Our family is absoultely in love with Little Gull and Long Boat Key. With two toddlers, the beach and pool access and privacy is perfect. The cottages are private, clean and nicely furnished. We have stayed in unit 11 a few times which is right by the pool and play area. We... More

Stayed in cottage #1 and it was an absolute dream! I cant say enough good things about the location and view from the cottage. The complex is quiet and feels like you are miles away from civilization, however, conveniently located close to area attractions. The only negatives are the carpet throughout the cottage (which is not very practical for the... More

My in-laws live in Sarasota which was the reason for our trip. I didn't think I would like Florida, and I am not fond of high rise buildings on the beach. Thank goodness I found Little Gull Cottages. Our cottage was quaint, well equipped, and spotless. (not a palmetto bug in site--what a shame someone had to write that unjustified... More
