Overview

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 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 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!

Best Key West experience

  • 5 of 5

Recently stayed here with my girlfriend and this beats staying at a hotel. You truly feel like it's a second home, and when you want to escape the party scene on Duval it's perfect for relaxing. Quick walk to the beach, nice private patio to sit outside and read, and short walk from local bars. The owner is very friendly and helpful. Will definitely be coming back!

Loved our stay

  • 4 of 5

Nice location away from the busy central tourist locations. As Tim says, "live like the locals do", which we did during our eight day stay. The apartment was comfortable and nicely decorated. Tim is very nice, and was attentive to our requests. Quaint and very comfortable patio area, where we spent time recovering from our many excursions. The close proximity to Smathers Beach and the bike route is a real plus. We would definitely return.

Disappointing, in need of a little TLC

  • 2 of 5

We’ve always been very pleased with VRBOs in the past. This was our worst VRBO experience. It’s too bad because there was a lot going for the place – nice location; fun, colorful décor; great porch; good price. But some other things (that easily could be corrected with a little more care, expense, and a better cleaning service) overshadowed the good qualities. The shower liner had mildewed, the tub drain plug had a black mold on it, the tub/shower control didn’t work so only showers were possible, the sink drain plug didn’t work, the TV control in the bedroom didn’t work (but the one in the living area did), and cups in the cupboard stuck to the liner. Some of these things made us question just how clean the towels, sheets, etc. were but they looked clean and we hoped they were. The owner did quickly respond when we saw a couple of large bugs in the unit by sending his exterminator in. A couple of other things would be harder to fix and may not be that important to other people – the place is small and there was no room in the bedroom for suitcases so we used half of the living room sofa, the end table and coffee table for our luggage which meant we really didn’t have much room for sitting in that room and the air conditioner is in the bedroom inches away from the head of someone sleeping on one side of the bed.

Owner's Response: Hi, You can't please everyone. We do pride ourselves in cleaning, and the girls do an excellent job. The pest control people had cancelled a monthly scheduled visit because I was out of town, and we did have an issue with a couple of bugs. This is true. We are in the tropics, and have a wide variety of little friends that would like a safe and warm/ or cold place to live. But Tuely Nolen is the best around, and we have not had an issue before or after. Tim

Wonderful place to stay

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed staying in the beach bungalow very much. It was great location for beaches and easy to get wherever we needed to go. Loved being able to sit outside and just enjoy being somewhere warm. Tim was very helpful with where to go and what to do and was very nice to talk to. The beach bungalow had everything we needed and we will definitely recommend/stay again.
