About Timothy Gaffney

Born and raised in the midwest.

Graduated from Iowa State University and the University of Iowa.

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

Timothy Gaffney purchased this house in 1990

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.

We were greeted by the owner with good information about the area. The property was clean and the porch was a wonderful place to hang out. From the descriptions I thought Duval street would be within walking distance, upper Duval is about a mile but where the shopping and entertainment is is another mile at a minimum so we were moving the car more than I hoped for. Parking is a premium on an island!

Owner's Response: Hi, Bikes are the best way to get around the island. We are across from the Bike Path. And suggest a bike vendor upon arrival. If you wan to drive 5 minutes to Duval, we can suggest a place to park at no charge.

Location was EXCELLENT! Tim was very kind and his property was super clean and had everything we needed. I would recommend this property to anyone who visits Key West. We spent time on each beach ( we walked to Duval too) restaurants and corner bars were great, everyone is so friendly!!

Relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

Everything was great at the Beach Bungalow! It was a nice relaxing house only a short walk to the beach or a quick drive or cab ride to the downtown fun! The owner lives on property and is very helpful to any needs you may have! I would highly recommend this property for the value and welcoming feel!

Beautiful Hideaway!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time staying at The Bungalow. It was nice to getaway from the craziness of Duval St. when it was time to go to bed. We rented bikes and were able to get to and from the main attractions of Key West with ease. Tim was wonderful! The binder he has put together with all of the inside info on places to visit on the island was so helpful. We would stay here again in a heartbeat and hope to soon!!

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!!
