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

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the DC Birch Bungalow. Timothy and Rodolfo did an incredible job furnishing and decorating this lovely apartment. We have stayed at many VRBO/HomeAway homes and have never seen such amazing attention to detail. Our hosts also provided us with great recommendations, loaded Metro cards and wonderful hospitality and conversation. If you are coming to DC, this is the place to stay!!!

Quaint and a perfect location for sight seeing!

  • 5 of 5

Our birch bungalow away from home was the perfect location and size for visiting our nations capital. My daughter and I took a girls trip from Texas and this was just what we needed. Timothy was a perfect host and he made our stay even more memorable. Thank you for your hospitality. We can’t wait to visit again!

Very clean, convenient, well-appointed, quiet and comfy!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 days at the Birch Bungalow and it met all of our expectations. Comfiest bed you can imagine! We cooked meals and found everything we needed for preparation and serving. The neighborhood felt safe and all of the museums and other sites we visited were a quick ride away - either by car or metro. Our only regret is that we didn't get to meet the wonderfully solicitous hosts who were out of town during our visit, but kept in touch and responded quickly to any questions we had. Hope to see them next time. You'll love it!

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

From the moment my daughter and I arrived, everything was perfect. The Birch Bungalow was exactly as advertised, it was cozy and comfortable. My daughter and I spent a week visiting the area, and we felt like we had a home away from home after a long day of exploring DC. Wonderful place and gracious hosts, we would stay again in a minute!

Beautifully appointed property in a convenient location. Easy parking and check-in. Property was impeccably clean and everything about it was first class. Washer and dryer make for convenient addition. The hosts were warm, friendly and care about your stay. You won't find a more comfortable bed!
