Little Gull is heaven on earth!!! We arrived early and Scott was gracious enough to let us check in early :). Thank you Scott! We stayed in unit 4 it was clean and had everything we needed. The beach was just steps away. This is the best place we have been too. We will definitely return. Thank you Little Gull...

We stayed in one of the beach side cottages, WOW. You could walk right out to the Little Gull's private beach which is steps away from your front door. The Little Gull offers everything you would want from a beach vacation, even your own private fireplace for cozy evenings. Awake to relaxing ocean waves as you enjoy coffee on your...

Hi Gwendolynes, Happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us! Thank you for your kind words and for taking time to share your comments on TripAdvisor. The beach is truly the most relaxing place to be, especially in the early hours of the morning with a fresh cup of coffee. Hope you visit us again soon!

My husband and I exchanged our timeshare for a two bedroom unit at Little Gull. We flew in to Tampa and the resort was an easy drive from the airport.

We stayed a week here and it was most relaxing and very well kept. Beautiful beach area with seclusion and bbq grills. Very nice on the bay as well. And very very quiet. One of the best values and properties on the key. Highly recommend this place. Staff is excellent and most accommodating.
