"This apartment is amazing -- we loved the space, the views from two porches were magnificent and the owners could not have been nicer. The apartment is perfect for two people, clean, nicely divided and fully equipped. The location is perfect -- easy bike ride or walk to town, the beach or our favorite restaurant -- the Oar. Trimms's pond connects to the Great Salt Pond so it is great for kayaking. There is always a breeze and a shady spot to sit at any time of the day. Absolutely loved everything about our stay. We have visited Block at least 15 times over the past 27 years but always on our boat and anchored in the Great Salt Pond -- it was nice to stay onisland and to still have a perfect view of our favorite anchorage. Highly recommend -- will definitely stay here again."

"This was the perfect vacation for our group/family, for our Nephew's Wedding weekend getaway. There was thirteen in our party and each family had more than enough space so we weren't bumping into each other and just enjoy the island. The distance from town was just the right amount, close enough to drive but far enough so you didn't hear all the noise. There is plenty to do at the house or you can just relax if you want to. The owners were available whenever we had questions, and very accommodating. We would recommend this property to everyone."

"Whitegate Cottage is a perfect example of why we love our VRBO vacations. Where else could you stay in a charming cottage with personal touches, get insider tips on best enjoying the destination and really feel like you are living like a local. (Oh, and be able to bring a beloved pet.) If you like chain restaurants, amusement parks and hotel amenities, this is NOT for you. But if you want to an active, natural getaway in an incredibly scenic spot, Whitegate Cottage would be ideal. We particularly liked waking up to birdsong, having coffee on the deck (always breezy!) and then setting out to explore the island by foot or bike. Vail Beach and Rodman's Hollow are near by and afford stunning views. The ship's ladder to the second floor may make this property unsuitable for some--but we found that climbing it was great exercise. The cottage also doesn't have a stove, but we successfully made pasta on the hot plate. And, at the end of the day, the outdoor shower was awesome!"

"The property is on the southwest end of Block Island with wrap-around views of the ocean south and west. The high bluff the house is on gives you a huge sense of space, whether you are in the king bed master bedroom or the main floor dining and sitting areas. Nothing nicer or more relaxing than the ocean breeze passing through, the sound of the surf and of the faint tolling bell of the navigation buoy. The house was in excellent shape with everything clean, organized and in good repair. It's very private: at the end of a dead end lane, perfect to let young children run around the ample lawn area and down to the beach. A prior reviewer found the path down to the beach overgrown. But we did not. It has evidently been maintained since. Very comfortable for parents with 2-4 kids or two couples. Be sure to come with a car. The access is fine, but not really bike friendly!"
