It is a question of preferences...

Many people have fun in the middle of a crowd, starting the day in a busy coffee-shop.


You don't. You prefer to walk out to the beach with a steaming cup coffee to watch the amazing parrot-fish, and then linger over a late breakfast (prepared in your own kitchen, your own way) on the patio of your cottage.

Many people like to spend their time in a beach bar, trying to hear their own voice amid loud music.


You don't. You prefer to sip a glass of cool white wine on a quiet deck watching the sunset or the moon reflecting on the sea. Silence embraces you.

Many people prefer to splash in a chlorinated pool.


You don't. You can't wait to immerse yourself in the ocean, watch the tropical sea life around you and become part of the sea.

Many people leave their pets behind in a kennel.


You don't. Your vacation wouldn't be complete without your dog running, swimming, and having fun with you.

Many people dream of a glamorous vacation; all the luxury and excitement, changing clothes 3-times a day.


You had that before. You want something different - large open spaces, the shade of big old trees, a private sunny beach, (Relax! Relax! Relax!) a little exercise on a bicycle to explore the island. You want a cottage that is simple and pretty, with style and understated elegance; a place designed with your comfort in mind.

Great! We have created such a place just for you.

Welcome to White Gate Court!


You also want to know
  ...that 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.
...that 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 .  
  ...that 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.
...that 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.  
Bayside Beach
  ...that 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.

...that 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.

Great Night Fishing   ...that 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.

White Gate Court,
The Florida Key


The Story of White Gate Court:

The property 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.

We 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 the landscape.

We would love to share with you old WHITE GATE COURT, in its best new shape.
