Born and raised in the midwest.

Graduated from Iowa State University and the University of Iowa.

Have lived in Connecticut for about 5 years.

Have vacation Rentals in Palm Springs and also property in Boulder, Co. and Iowa City Iowa for students.

No outstanding warrents at this time.

Timothy Gaffney purchased this house in 1990

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.

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.

LIVING LIKE A LOCAL

  • 4 of 5
Welcomed upon arrival by our host, Tim. Gave us good tips on nearby eateries and told us they'd deliver bikes to our door which they did promptly. We used our rental bikes to go everywhere. Our bungalow was cozy and private and we used the beach chairs to chill on the sand at nearby Smathers & Higgs beach. AC worked well. Great to come back to each day. Our bungalow had all the conveniences of home. Hot tub was inviting but weather was too hot to use it. Would definitely stay there again. Read the rental binder, it gives useful information. We had a very pleasant Key West experience! Try the Key Lime pie at Blue Heaven and the craft beer at Kelly's and WOB. The Southernmost point of the US is definitely worth a visit.

AMPLE, PRIVATE, CLEAN AND ROMANTIC PROPERTY

  • 4 of 5
This is a one of a kind property with a one of a kind host. Every amenity is at hand and most of the eclectic decor is original. Tim is a friendly, gracious man and is at hand to straighten any kinks right away. The location is convenient to everything, well it is not a big island. We spent most of our quality time off Duvall at the Hemmingway House and a real surprise, Two Friends Patio Restaurant on Front St. across from a great bar, Island Dogs. There are two decks on the first floor. Be aware that you will be sharing the upper (hot tub, BBQ) deck with the residents of Bungalow 2. In our case, they took it over as their own for our entire stay. It didn't matter because we were seldom there and preferred to eat out. Our take, highly recommended, just know that Key west is an intense and exhausting place. No children ever. Bonus, drive the keys from the mainland once in your life. It's not that far. Thanks, Tim.

A FANTASTIC CHILLED WEEK IN KEY WEST

  • 4 of 5
A fantastic property set in beautiful gardens not far from Smathers beach. The property has had a furniture upgrade since the last set of pictures were taken and now boasts a leather sofa downstairs, updated direct TV and a fantastic leather framed king bed. The property is in a quiet location and even with the other unit occupied it always seemed private and secluded. The only (minor) criticisms I could make were that the upstairs AC unit is very noisy and there is no cooker, the latter is made clear in the description just think if you were looking at staying for any length of time you would like a cooker. These are very minor points and would be back her to stay again in a flash, absolutely love this property.

Owner's Response: Hi,

Thanks again for your kind response.

What kind of "cooker" would you suggest?

As you may discern, I am not much of a cook!

PEACEFUL PRIVATE PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
As two weary travelers arriving in Key West we were pleased to find ourselves in this quiet, clean and comfortable "Beach Bungalow". The owner was there when we arrived that afternoon and showed us around the place and was even kind enough to offer us some very welcome adult refreshments! The unit is adorable and the perfect getaway spot for two with a couple of decks to relax on if you wish. The king size bed is quite comfortable and we both slept soundly during our visit. The kitchen has a microwave, more dishes and glasses than you'll ever need, a small coffeemaker and an apartment size refrigerator (like 3/4 the size of a regular fridge) which we found to be perfect for vacationing. We had access to the laundry facilities and supplies and beach chairs if we needed them. We only had 3 nights there but would definitely go back for a longer stay. The location suited us as well - VERY Close to Smather's Beach, the airport and Higgs Beach (where there is a really good restaurant on the beach with plenty of parking). The owner was very helpful with suggestions of where to go and the best way to get there - he has a nice binder put together with pretty much everything you need to know. Pricewise I think this is probably one of the best deals you'll find in Key West!
