About Timothy Kane

Hello there! My name is Timothy and my partner's name is Rodolfo. We have lived in DC for the past 11 years and love our city! Rodolfo owns his own home-remodeling company, which helped out a great deal (!) when we decided to create the DC Birch Bungalow. For my part, I do my own type of construction community around diversity and inclusion at the Multicultural Center at The George Washington University :-) We love to travel and know what it feels like to receive an open and authentic welcome from those we meet in other places. We try to "pay it forward" by hosting guests here in DC in a way that feels welcoming and caring. Thanks so much for looking into the DC Birch Bungalow and we hope to host you soon! Timothy & Rodolfo

Why Timothy Kane chose Trinidad

We care about our neighbors and do our best to share our sense of community pride. One way I share my community pride is by creating and maintaining a garden in front of our home. To me, our garden is a gift to ourselves and to our neighbors. We purposely took down the wire fence that surrounded our front yard in order to have our open space reflect our openness to getting to know those who share our neighborhood. So, when I plant, water and weed our garden, I chat with neighbors and those walking appreciate the compliments (and photos taken!) of our garden in bloom. So, in that same spirit of openness and pride, we invite you to join us at the DC Birch Bungalow! Timothy & Rodolfo

What makes this apartment unique

Our 1925 brick home has great character, which we have added to over the past three years. What we like most about our home is our ability to welcome family, friends and neighbors over to share food and fun. While the DC Birch Bungalow was under construction last year, if offered the perfect space for hosting our Halloween Party Haunted House :-) Fun gatherings like that make our home perfect for us and we feel blessed to be some of the newest members of our diverse neighborhood community. Timothy & Rodolfo

Excellent, well-appointed apartment with great hosts

  • 5 of 5

My 17-year-old daughter and I were lucky to stay in the Birch Bungalow during our time in D.C. for the March for Our Lives. We found the apartment to be impeccably decorated and spotless with the owners having planned ahead for every detail a guest could need. The unit is conveniently located (about 7 blocks as I recall) from the Metro - among other things, Timothy and Rodolfo left perfect directions to the Metro on the counter, which really helped these out-of-towners. I have stayed in many, many VRBO units over the years and this was by far the nicest. You cannot go wrong here.

Loved The Birch Bungalow!!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay...the Bungalow was beautifully furnished with everything we could possibly want. Also very convenient ...we used LYFT to get around and it was minutes to all the sites. If we are ever in Washington again, we will definitely stay here. Thanks Timothy and Rudolfo for your hospitality!

Will be returning!

  • 5 of 5

The Birch Bungalow is an awesome space to stay if you are a couple traveling to DC. Any amenity you could need is included in this space, which was very private. My boyfriend and I both agree that the bed was the most comfortable we had ever slept in! The amount of work they put into perfecting the Bungalow is very apparent. It is beautiful! Timothy was so kind and we do plan on returning, hopefully with more time allowing us to enjoy some coffee with our hosts. 5 stars, 10/10! -Abby and Mike
