About the property

This Unique Bungalow Has 3 Rooms On One Level. Perfect For 2 People.

For nearly 15 years now guests have been delighted to discover the Beach Bungalow-Key West.

Nestled among palm trees, hibuscus, and boganvillas, the Bungalow2 is located in a compound just a block from the Beach and Atlantic Ocean, about a mile from Upper Duval Street, and across the street from the Bike Path.

The Bungalow2 features 3 rooms on one level, a 40 foot covered deck with outdoor jacuzzi and gas grill, and free parking.

Located a block to the beach and across from the Bike Path,

it is very popular for both the value and location. Our guests like to go to Duval and the nightlife, but appreciate the tranquility of returning back home to the quiet and away from the bars that are open downtown until 4 AM.

The Bungalow has free Internet service, 36' HD TV, Queen Bed, washer/dryer access, Free Parking on the street, original Art, books, movies, and other features to make your vacation cozy and relaxing.

The kitchenette has a microwave, dishes, small sink, refrigerator, and outdoor gas grill.

Truely living like a Local ... The Beach Bungalow is the best value in Key West.

Located 1 block from the Beach on Atlantic Blvd, which runs along the Atlantic Ocean from Smathers to Higgs Beach.

The commons features extensive palms and other plantings all done by the owner over the past 10 years, with an outdoor fireplace, outdoor Jacuzzi, deck chairs, gas grill, water features, and the largest beach in Key West only a block away.

Bikes are available to rent and encouraged. The Bike path is across the street and Sloppy Joe's and the Hemmingway House are just 10 minutes away by bike.

Guest's also receive discounts on all sorts of fun things to do while in Key West at the Ticketsellers at Mallory Square ticket booth off Duval at Front Street.

Live like a local for the price of a hotel room. The Beach Bungalow-Key West is the island's best buy.

Why Timothy Gaffney chose Midtown

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 Bungalow2 is unique because of it's low price, quality accomdations, and location.

You are staying in a suite for the price of an ordinary hotel room.

And living like a local!

Authentic Key West feel

  • 5 of 5

This quiet little cottage-type setting was extremely clean, private, and cheerfully decorated. The owner, Tim, was most hospitable and accommodating, and provided thoughtful guidance to the immediate area and beyond. We had a great time!

Great property and location & peaceful relaxation.

  • 5 of 5

Tim was great to chat with and accommodating. The unit was neat and clean. Spent majority of time off-site visiting with family as we were in town for a funeral. Couldn’t figure out how to operate tv in bedroom (operator error). Would definitely like to come back for a pleasure trip and would definitely recommend to friends.

Owner's Response: Great to meet you on your return to Key West. Come back and see us again. The problem with the Remote in the Bedroom was the Dish Remote has a defective design of buttons on the side for some reason. If you hit the side buttons while using it it throws things out of wack... and you have to set things up again. Bad design for multiple users! Tim

Cute Bungalow Near Beach

  • 4 of 5

A small hideaway near Smathers Beach that provides comfortable essentials for a great vacation. Clean and well-provisioned with ample opportunities to grill, hot tub or just sit on the porch to read/relax. Great location to explore all the island has to offer: walking to beaches, biking to downtown or even biking to Stock Island! A great find!

Very nice. Will return.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time. The place was spacious and comfortable. It was clean and affordable. The only downside was that the location was quite far from downtown for walking. But other than that... It was a wonderful stay. I will definitely stay again, only this time I'll bring bicycles :)

Owner's Response: HI, Thanks again for staying with us.. Great to meet you both. We have a rental program for bikes included in your basic information when you check-in, since we're right across from the Bike Path. In 10 minutes you are at Sloppy Joe's, but don't have the issue of trying to sleep next to bars that are open until 4 AM on Duval. Plus we are a block from the Beach. Hope to see you again soon! Tim

Great little place!

Loved it! Not too small just big enough. Only thing is if you plan on cooking this may not be the place for you with no stove. Otherwise great!

Absolutely fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the bungalow so very much. Everything was inviting and comfortable. We especially enjoyed the porch, whether it was coffee in the morning or and adult libation in the evening, it was perfect.
