The staff is wonderful. Kind and considerate. This is the only "resort" I have found in the upper keys which is truly pet friendly. The rooms are small cottages - some individual rooms, some cottages have 2 units per cottage.
White gate court is well maintained and extremely clean. The cottages are older. With window air conditioners. This is not a luxury resort. If being with your pet is the focus of your vacation, this is the spot for you. You can leave your pets safely in your room to go to the beach or out to dinner. The other resorts that claim to be pet friendly do not allow this. At the others, your pet must remain with you at all times.
Your pet can safely walk through the property without a leash. The small boat ramp is perfect for dog swimming in shallow water.
My dog was quite ill at the beginning of our visit to white gate court. The dog seems much better.
He went swimming and roamed the grounds playing with the other dog guests. Terri, the office manager at white gate told me this happens often - that people come down with their dogs to say "good-bye" to their beloved pet, and owner and pet have a wonderful bonding visit.
