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. 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.
