About Timothy Gaffney

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.

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 Paradise

  • 5 of 5
What a fabulous find the Beach Bungalow was! It met all of our needs...and more. The decor was unique and it felt like a"home away from home" very quickly. The gardens were so amazing and made for a quiet respite after a busy day. It was a short walk to Smathers Beach and an easy drive to the downtown area. We enjoyed the fact that we were slightly removed from the action of the downtown area. Tim was on site to offer helpful suggestions on where to go and where to park which was really helpful. We settled into an easy routine of being on the beach in the morning and touring the sites in the afternoon and evening. Breakfast at Blue Heaven was fabulous and bars like Sloppy Joe's, Hog's Breath and The Green Parrot were lots of fun. We would definitely stay here on another visit to Key West!!

Pleasant, clean, roomy, good value, near beaches

  • 5 of 5
Quiet location on south side of Key West. Too far to walk to center of tourist activity (Duvall St), but easy bike ride. Close to southern beaches. Very clean with nice places to sit outside with luxuriant plantings. Owner very considerate. Good place if you want a laid back Key West stay. Bedroom is on second floor, bathroom on first floor so not a good choice if stairs are an issue. One nice restaurant, Salute, within walking distance and Cuban coffee is nearby. Otherwise need car or bike to find places to eat.

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5
My stay exceeded all of my expectations! The property is impeccable and pristine! Every thing that you could want or need is right there. I am looking forward to returning. I enjoyed walking down to the pier and dining at Salutes. The property is just a short cab from all of the bars. I really enjoyed being tucked away for all of the hustle and bustle of the main strip. Everything was as pictured and in my opinion better than :) thank you Tim for sharing this property and see you soon!

Such a good find.

This is just what we needed! A very quiet place just 2 blocks from the beach. Beautiful location and Tim was a great guy. We really enjoyed our stay there while visiting our daughter and family who have just moved to Key West. The place is very well kept up and spacious inside. No issues at all. Would definitely return.

Just right - comfortable, affordable, fun

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I stayed for 3 nights and we made the most of it. Used hot tub, cooked out on the grill provided, brought our own bikes which we could safely store on the deck and rode all over starting with the bike path across the street, walked to beach, mimosas on the deck, and rainy day cuddling on the couch. It was instantly welcoming and comfortable. We did not want for anything. The location was great...an easy bike ride to Duval Street/Mallory Square or the management provided a handy book with information on where to find parking (they were spot-on). It is a really short bike ride down a wide path to Martello Tower & White Street pier. There is a beach within walking distance, but Key West is not known for its great beaches. There was also fishing gear available for us to use, a very nice touch.

Little piece of heaven on earth.

  • 5 of 5
From the looks of the reviews and photos we were excited for our stay at Tim's place. Boy were we in for a surprise, it was every thing I wanted and more. You first walk into a tropical oasis of a patio with lots of privacy from all the greens surrounding and a hot tub as well. Washer and dryer were conveniently located on property w/free soap. The house was very clean, homey and had the beach feel throughout. A kitchenette with the basics while you are there. Perfect sized bathroom w/ towels and beach towels. Tim, also had beach chairs for the beach as well. The upstairs was amazing and the bed was very comfortable. Private patio off the bedroom as well. We rented a car the first day and there was a spot outside for us to park. Beach a couple blocks away. Airport within walking distance but a little further. Duval street you could walk but we cabbed it. He had lots of helpful information throughout the property as well in reference to Key West. Thank you Tim for sharing your property with us, we will be back.
