Timeshare owners need to know a year ahead of time before making flight and vacation plans on the calendar weeks for the following year. My family made expensive flight arrangements and had to cancel and re-book because week 5 which we own actually started Feb. 4 instead of Jan. this year. Cunningham Properties should advise the owners a year ahead...

We rented cottage #1 right on the beach at Little Gull Cottages for a week. The man at the front desk was friendly and very helpful. A meet and greet was held on Monday morning in the recreation room where we were introduced to a number of other guests. The cottage had two bedrooms, fully stocked kitchen, living room, dinette...

It was a busy year and my husband and I were looking for someplace to go just to relax and spend sometime on the beach. Being a travel agent, I have many resources available to me. After much research, I came across little Gull Cottages. It is a quaint and charming spot nestled on Long Boat Key in Sarasota, Florida....

Longboat Key is a barrier beach to Sarasota, so it is bordered on the east by Sarasota Bay and on the west by the Gulf of Mexico. It is definitely an upscale island with very strict zoning restrictions. There are minimal commercial properties and any available land or older properties are quickly being built into mini-mansions or mansions depending on...

We booked this as an RCI exchange for one week, and, whilst we expected it to be good, we didn't expect it to be so perfect ! The style of the resort, the units and the amenities is not really like the standard timeshare experience in any way whatsoever. The units are individual in layout and appearance, and equipped with...

This was a great trip. We were a little hesitant being on the bay side of the resort but it was perfect. We had the largest unit on the property, Unit 16, and it was absolutely perfect for our family. We had four bedrooms and two baths. The floor plan was wide open with very nice furnishings. The appliances appeared...

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...

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...

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.
