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 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.

Perfect location - great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 3 nights and it was wonderful. It's in a secluded compound with a gated entry. It was roomy and well decorated. The king sized bed was super comfy. The kitchen was small but had all the amenities we needed. Wi-fi and tv worked great (lots of channels). The beach is very close!! We had such a relaxing stay! Wish we had time to use the hot-tub but we'll be back soon! Tim was so helpful and sweet! We would recommend this place to anyone who wants a great place to stay for the visit to Key West.

Key West paradise

  • 4 of 5

There was a little glitch at check in, but other than that, our stay was a visit to paradise. The accomodations were just as advertised, the location was close enough to bike everywhere we wanted to go, but far enough away to avoid the noise and crowds at night.

We would definitely stay here again!

Loved our beach bungalow! Great Key West location

  • 5 of 5

The bungalow was well decorated with A real Key West feel. Tim was very helpful and his well prepared binder answered all our questions. We found the Jacuzzi refreshing and loved reading on our second floor deck. We would definitely stay there again.

This charming bungalow was a home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were celebrating our 20th anniversary. We found the beach bungalow online and it was everything we expected. It was in a great location within walking distance to Smathers Beach. It was far enough away from the craziness of Duval Street, even though we found ourselves going there quite often. We were able to eat breakfast in most mornings, and even made a dinner on the grill one night. The three rooms are equipped with everything we needed. Tim was a wonderful host. We would stay there again if we end up returning to Key West , which is very possible.

Couldn't Have Been Happier!!

  • 5 of 5

This rental was exactly as described and perfect for our vacation. Tim was an amazing host. The rental was exceptionally clean, quiet and cozy. 5 minute walk to Smathers beach and about a 15 minute walk to SALUTE restaurant. I would highly recommend and will definitely be renting again upon our next visit. Thank you Tim for everything that you did to make our stay memorable and enjoyable.
