and then linger over a late breakfast (prepared in your own
kitchen, your own way) on the patio of your cottage.

WHITE GATE COURT is not a motel. The property is 119,000
square feet (approx. 3 acres) filled with huge ancient trees and
colorful tropical plants. The maximum occupancy is 18-20 persons.
That means 5,950 square feet per person to relax in peace and privacy.
The tropical park between the highway and the buildings is a natural
screen that keeps out the noise of the world you left behind.
PETS ARE WELCOME! All kinds and all sizes of dogs are
admitted. Rottweilers, Dobermans and German Shepherds will need
to be closely monitored by their owners. Vaccination proof is required
and restrictions are to be respected in order to protect the rest
of our 4-legged guests. So far, no pet has been injured at White
Gate Court .
OURS IS A TYPICAL, KEYS-STYLE BEACH, 220' long, 30' deep,
white-sanded, private, and protected with sea walls and rocks. (Do
not expect Jamaican-type walking beaches on the Florida Bay.) The
beach has a soft, sanded sea-bottom and the clear water is safe
for swimming and snorkeling. Chaise lounges and umbrella
tables offer inviting spaces for sunning or relaxing in the shade.
we have NO POOL. (But no screaming children either.) You
will enjoy the greatest pool in the world, the blue waters of the
MATECUMBE BIGHT. Snorkel face to face with colorful
tropical fish and other sea creatures.
OUR SUNSET DECK, a terrace on the water,
is a perfect spot to view glorious sunsets. The surrounding tropical
beauty inspires you to wear your most exotic, gauzy beach dress
for an afternoon cocktail in company.
PRIVATE BOAT DOCKAGE IS FREE for
our Guests with fresh water and energy supply at the dock and
on-site trailer parking. In order to keep the beach area undisturbed,
we ask that you launch your boat at the Public Boat Ramp at Indian
Key Fill, less than 2 miles from us.
NIGHT-FISHING IS GREAT from our dock.
Licenses are now required from any dock, bridge or shoreline. You can apply for one on line or stop at the local retailers to get one on your way in. If you catch our 5-foot nurse shark, kindly
release him. He is used to gentle treatment.

The Florida Keys
Story of White Gate Court:
once belonged to one of the most respectable families of the
Island, pioneers on the Keys. Most buildings date from
the forties, resisted the Hurricane of 1960, changed owners
several times, and as time passed by, they gradually lost
their beauty and shape, just like very old people, missing
love and care.
found the place in 1995 in painful condition. But the charm
shined through the damaged structures, peeling walls and dirt.
It took more than 2 years of hard work to remodel buildings,
modernize sanitary and electrical installations, re-order
