Little Gull is a special resort on a special island. Longboat offers a lot to the vacationer, and Little Gull has been consistently an outstanding resort to spend your time. Quaint, quiet, cottages, well kept and maintained. Each year you can see the upgrades that took place. Be back next year.

We go every March to escape the New England Winter, we love the location and the staff at Little Gull. We got the memo saying that Debbie was leaving which is a loss as she was a real asset.I'm sure that customer service, friendliness will continue and location will always be great.

Quaint, quiet and absolutely lovely. There are only sixteen units that span from the bay to the gulf set up to make you feel isolated from the rest of the area. The unit had ample space with no shortcuts. This place has been around for some time, however, maintained to look as if it was just built. The beach was...

First time staying here after purchasing a unit and not regretting it. From greeting to good bye the staff was great. Debbies's arrival information was very helpful. Scott was also very helpful with a "haunted" tv in the bedroom, but he had someone come over and was taken care of in minutes. All were very friendly. Unit itself was comfortable,...

It is a beautiful, peaceful, and well maintained resort. Just steps away from the ocean and a private fishing pier on the bayside. Beautiful sunsets on the ocean side. It is in a Great location just minutes from Sarasota and Siesta Key beach. I would recommend this resort to anyone looking for a peaceful vacation. We will be going back.
