Why Timothy Gaffney chose Key West

People stay with us because they like to go down to Duval Street, but don't want to be out till the bars close at 4 AM each nite, or stay next to the bars with music until then.

Very secluded little spot a short walk to the beach. Across from the Nature Preserve, and the Bike Path.

What makes this house unique

The Beach Bungalow is unique because of it's excellent value, as well as location-- a block to the beach.

Guest's receive an intimate bungalow in a great location for the price of an ordinary hotel room.

Those things, plus the quality of design, make the Beach Bungalow a real 'Price Performer', as a friend of mine would say.

Piece of Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this wonderful little bungalow for three nights in early May. Plenty of room for two. The kitchenette made it possible for us to have a lite breakfast or lunch right there. The furnishings are warm and welcoming and the bed was super comfortable!! We went parasailing one morning at Smathers beach which is only a short block away. We rented bikes and took the bike trail to Duval and Mallory Square during the day. But at night when back at the bungalow, it was quiet and serene. The outside area is enclosed, gated and so perfectly landscaped with palms and plants that it seems as if you are in your own little world. Completly private and tropical. One day we used the blender provided to make frozen cocktails and just sat outside in our private little tropical oasis for several hours. It was perfect!! We didn't want to leave!!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there for 3 nights while attending a charity event. It is a great, quiet getaway. Loved the way it was set up and the owner is a great guy. Close to Smathers Beach and not to far from downtown. It was central to all the areas we were going while there. Would suggest if you are looking for an older but nice place to stay away from all the hub bub of the hotels this place is for you. We would stay there again if we return to the area.

Absolutely Charming!!

  • 5 of 5

We had so much fun. Tim was so helpful and made the trip an easy one for us! The home was clean, adorable and conveniently located. The beach was steps away and restaurants were as well. I would recommend this adorable home to anyone looking for a charming get away for you and your significant other!

Perfect Locatuon

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for 3 nights in March with my partner who had booked everything for a birthday present and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. On arrival Tim greeted us with an ice cold beer each which we thought was a perfect touch after a 2 hour drive from Key Largo. Tim was lovely and nothing was too much trouble. Our beach bungalow was well equipped and very quaint. Had the best 3. nights sleep in our huge bed and we also had a sun terrace with loungers so did a spot of sun bathing while we were there too. The bungalow was close to the beach so a really nice walk which only took about 10 minutes. Duvall Street was a taxi ride away and we also hired bikes and explored for the whole afternoon. Wish we had stayed longer as we would have explored more places. We would definitely stay here again and couldn't really fault anything. Thank you Tim hope to see you again one day.

Regards Janice and Tony xx
