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.

Key West feel.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at dusk and were enchanted by the lighted, plant filled patio we walked through on the way to our back rental. Very nice, cozy, place with a very comfortable bed. We rented bicycles and they were delivered and picked up here. Very easy biking everywhere. Our two favorite places to eat were Inca's and DJ's Crab Shack. We miss everything already. Thank You Tim!

Winter getaway

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time and the place was amazing. Everything you need for a great stay is there. Its within walking distance to two beaches and Old Town Key West. My luggage didnt make the same flight as I did and Tim was nice enough to put it in our unit by the time we got back from the beach. We have already told friends about the Beach Bungalow and will definitely stay there again.

The best place north of the 'most southern place in the continental US'

  • 5 of 5

We had the opportunity to stay at Tim's Bungalow for three nights and loved it! It as all that we were looking for and more. We were looking for a place that was slightly off the main busyness of town and Duval Street, that was close to the beach, and yet not too far to access any part of Key West, and this was it. We were also looking for a place that fit the eclectic culture of Key West, and that had all or most of the amenities that we enjoyed at home. We got all that at the Bungalow and more. As promised, the keys were waiting for us at the designated location when we arrived, and also by chance we had the opportunity to meet Tim as well. He is a very kind gentlemen indeed. Tim gave us a brief tour of the bungalow and all that it offered, and even a couple hints of where to go places that were very helpful. The bungalow itself was perfect, clean, and well stocked of all that we had at home. We loved the quaint quietness of our own deck. I will not give an inventory of all that you can enjoy at Tim's bungalow, in short, it was all that we were looking for and so much more, and we are very thankful of Tim's kindness and generosity in sharing his little piece of Key West with us.

You will get more than you think

  • 5 of 5

Pictures do not do justice to this property. High ceilings, great light, and lush garden. Each morning we walked two blocks to Kim's Cubano for coffee and walked down to the water. Rent bikes and get to see the island. Each night, enjoy the deck off the bedroom or the hot tub. Tim is a resource and a great host. My wife and I cannot wait to come back!

The perfect place to stay in Key West

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying in the Beach Bungalow. Tim was a great host, and being located in a quiet part of town, it was nice to get away from the hustle and bustle. The accommodations are spacious yet cozy, and the lofted bedroom, sun deck, and hot tub were all added bonuses. We will definitely recommend Tim's place to our friends and will be back for our next trip to Key West.
