Hello Bone Island friends,
Pup and I have received many calls, emails and texts from our wonderful Bare It All friends expressing concern about us and our beloved Key West. I think my husband found the perfect quote for our real estate blog (deantownsend.com):
“The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated.”  - Mark Twain 
Key West and all of us that call it home are doing well. Clean up around the island is ongoing. We always wish it would happen faster, of course, but we are almost back to Key West’s usual recipe of ab-normal. Unfortunately, our neighbors in the Middle and Lower Keys did not fair as well and they will need some time to clean up and rebuild. Our hearts and help go to them as well as all the victims of the recent storms.
Key West officially re-opens to tourism tomorrow, Sunday October 1st.  It’s already time to start getting ready for Fantasy Fest, which begins Friday October 20th.  It’s the one week of the year when I like to wear clothes – err costumes!
Most importantly, we want all our friends to know that Bone Island Bare It All will go on as planned, November 30th – December 3rd. One of the best ways to help rebuild is to support the local economy. So we invite everyone to come back and enjoy Key West’s quintessentially quirky hospitality. We and the entire island are looking forward to your return and to another great weekend together.
See you all soon,
Dean The Naked Realtor and Pup

Named one of the huffington post's 15 lgbt must-dos in 2015!

For over two centuries Key West has been historically known as Bone Island, and Bone Island Bare It All gives a whole new meaning to that name!

Two weekends each year, hundreds of gay naturists and guys who like to get naked fill up Key West’s clothing-optional gay guesthouses and gay-friendly hotels for a weekend of naked fun in paradise.  Featured events include dance parties, pool parties, shopping, dining, sailing, performances, and tours.  All naked!  Check your clothing and inhibitions at the doors of Key West’s famous gay daytime and nighttime establishments.

Your Host: Dean Townsend, The Naked Realtor


Dean Townsend was born in Montréal, grew up on Chicago’s North Shore and spent his childhood summers in the English countryside.  After attending McGill University, he toiled away as a thermal dynamics engineer by day so he could invest in real estate by night—buying and selling thirty homes by the age of forty.

In 2002, escaping a cold Chicago winter, Dean first visited Key West.  Captivated by the island’s tropical charms, he returned to the frozen north, quit his engineering job, sold his house, and moved into his first Key West cottage within a few months.  Dean found his place in the sun.

Dean dove into Key West real estate head first, becoming a Realtor® shortly after settling in.  Between selling houses and devoting himself to numerous community organizations, he found time to complete a couple of residential redesign projects and constructed a new home in Old Town. 

Eleven years ago he started Bone Island Bare It All as a way to gather naturists for a weekend of camaraderie and share with them the beauty and fun of Key West.  Bone Island has come a long way since that first weekend in December 2006.  Each time, more men discover Key West’s unique brand of fun and go home telling their buddies about it.

With the success of Bone Island, Dean has become known around town as the “Naked Realtor,” a title he wears – or doesn’t wear – proudly.  Being a local Key West realtor for the past fifteen years as well as a naturist, Dean has helped numerous friends find their perfect piece of paradise where they are free to be themselves.  Here on Bone Island we live by our motto, One Human Family.  For its entire history, this small island has welcomed people to be themselves.  Dean is proud to help others discover the joy of living “far from normal, close to perfect.”  If you’ve ever dreamed of a secluded island escape where you can feel free to drop your clothes and feel at home, let Dean help you find or create your private oasis.
