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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

We are Disney Vacation Club members who had turned some of our points over to RCI. This is the first time we've ever been able to use our RCI points and are completely satisfied with our stay here December 12-19, 2015. We are in #4 and are on the gulf side. The cottages are very clean, well stocked, stainless appliances,...

Little Gull is one of my favorite places!! My Mom and Dad stayed here every year forever, always staying two or three weeks each year. My husband and my girls and I would come stay with them sometimes too. A wonderful resort. Both my mom and dad are no longer with us so when I come to Little Gull it...

This was our second stay at Little Gull and it was as good as the first. The staff are friendly and helpful and the accommodation is so comfortable. We were on the bayside but it's a short walk over the road to the beach. Sunset is when everyone meets up at the beach to toast the sun going down. Sunrise...
