I visited White Gate Court with my son and 2 dogs. When we arrived there was no one in the office to greet us, which threw us off just a little bit, however upon trying the door to the cottage we had reserved, it was open and we went inside. Inside we found the key to the cottage along with a note welcoming us to White Gate Court. We proceeded to inspect the cottage and it was adorable ... very clean, bottled water in the fridge, everything we needed in the kitchen, clean linens, towels, etc. The beds were very comfortable, A/C worked great, TV with cable was fine.
After settling in we checked out the beach area which was also adorable. Very quaint with little white lights that come on at night. This is a place with only (7) accommodations so it was never too crowded. It was so much fun to be with other people who brought their dogs. We swam with our dogs, snorkeled, and just enjoyed being in a very quiet and serene setting.
If you walk out to the front of White Gate Court there is a long road that runs parallel to US1. Everyday I walked there with my dogs ... you could also run or ride bikes and it's very peaceful.
We cooked at the cottage a couple of nights and went out to dinner a couple of times. Restaurants and shopping are about a 5-10 minute drive away.
I have ZERO complaints and in fact am planning on spending Thanksgiving at White Gate Court with my sister and cousins. I can't wait to go back! This little place is a gem!
If you are a person who needs to have constant access to someone in the office, this is not the place for you. If you are the type of person who likes to be left alone once you arrive, you'll love this place!! I am the latter. Once I'm there, don't bother me. I LOVED it!!
