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.

The perfect place to stay in Key West

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying in the Beach Bungalow. Tim was a great host, and being located in a quiet part of town, it was nice to get away from the hustle and bustle. The accommodations are spacious yet cozy, and the lofted bedroom, sun deck, and hot tub were all added bonuses. We will definitely recommend Tim's place to our friends and will be back for our next trip to Key West.

Would definitely stay here again

What a great place to stay! Convenient location, easy bike ride to town, restaurants, and the beach. Clean and in a safe area. We had bikes delivered upon arrival, what a nice service!! The Cuban breakfast take out place down the street had yummy sandwiches and cafe con leche. The outside patio was very comfortable to sit and relax or eat breakfast and we used the grill to cook our fresh caught fish from our charter for Thanksgiving. Loved the hot tub in the evenings. Thanks Tim, we had a great time!

Sweet and funky

Very well maintained with fun decorations~ perfect for Key West. We loved the second story bedroom, open feel. Not far from beaches or too far removed from Southern Most area..great little spot for our short honey moon after the family left. Wish we could have stayed longer and enjoyed the beautifully landscaped porches.
