We stayed in cottage #8 and it was excellent. We had our own porch with plenty of seating for the three of us. The cottage had two bedrooms and two bathrooms along with a washer and dryer. The beach was a short walk through the property and there were plenty of beach chairs and recliners provided to use at the... More

We stayed on the Bay side in the four bedroom unit right next to the Bay. We took our five children and we all loved it. We loved riding the free bikes and used the natural gas grills several times. Everything is superior quality. My son fished off the dock on the Bay and also waded into the ocean to... More

If you're looking for a nice quiet and relaxing vacation, look no further. We had previously stayed on Anna Maria Island twice before and absolutely loved it. One evening we were traveling south to eat in Armand's Circle and happened to pass through Longboat Key and decided this would be a place to check out on our next trip to... More

This was our forth year coming to Little Gull. We stayed in Unit 4. Perfect for a couple that wanted to relax. Just about 100 steps from the beach. Last year we had kids with us and it was great. Between the very comfortable cottage and the beach is a huge stand of pine trees, so when we had enough... More

We spent three days with friends who invited us to join them in a two bedroom cottage here (#9). Cute place, two full baths, fireplace and a kitchen. We spent a bit of time at the heated pool and the grounds are lovely with a brick driveway and brick paths to the water. You can walk to the bay side... More

Wonderful cottages beach and bay side. Scott in the office is the best. We ate at the Lazy Lobster 4 times. Lobster Escargot, Lobster Mac, shrimp and fish. Yummy! Amazed that my 80 year old mom walked the steps twice a day. Loved the free bikes. Found a cute little thrift store (great deals).

We actually stayed here in February 2011. What a beautiful place. We were in a studio with a pull down bed and a kitchen. The resort was clean and the beach was beautiful. The only problem was it was very cold and we couldn't enjoy the beach.

The setting is charming with the small cottages along side a brick path leading to the Gulf of Mexico. Marie and Scott were both helpful and informative about the area. Our one bedroom cottage was well laid out for two adults with a comfortable although small bed. Kitchen was well equipped and appliances in good working order. Location was good... More

We just spent a week at the Little Gull Cottages. We couldn't have been more pleased. We felt very much at home in our unit. The furnishings were very comfortable. A lot of attention was paid to the little things, including all the amenities. The whole resort is very well run and friendly. We were able to take long walks... More
