This studio apartment is 625 square feet. Full kitchen with gas stove and microwave/convention oven. Large shower and bath. Private gated parking behind unit. This studio is directly behind a great seafood restaurant named the Hogfish Bar and Grill. But once inside the studio you have complete quiet. The pictures tell the story. This is a very nice unit. We are 1.5 miles from the City Limits and 4.5 miles to Old Town Key West. If my calendar is full I have another listing. I have a luxury yacht that sleeps two - six guests.

About Andy Griffiths
I have lived in this area for 44 years. I started Andy Griffiths Charters in 1985. I can recommend restaurants, fishing guides and things to do during your visit to Key West and the Lower Keys. I belong to every chamber of commerce in the Florida Keys and I serve on several non profit boards. I also have a luxury yacht available if this unit is booked.
Andy Griffiths purchased this Studio in 2007
Why Andy Griffiths chose Stock Island
This is a very nice studio for a Key West visit. A very reasonable rate for such a nice accommodation in this area. If my calendar is full with this unit I also have a luxury yacht that sleeps two - six guests.
What makes this Studio unique
I own the unit and set it up originally as my office and home away from home. I use it for poker games when not rented. So it is not my aim to squeeze as much as I can out of this place. Just like to help pay my condo fees and the housekeeper. On the other hand I am not interested in shorter stays. I have a 3 nights minimum. If this property is booked I also have a luxury yacht that sleeps two - six guests.

The location was perfect, far enough outside Key West and yet close enough to Key West. One sketchy street while getting there but upon arrival...perfect. Pictures of Studio are exact!!!
A gem rare to find.
Great location just outside of Key West. 4 stars as I would suggest upgrading the Murphy bed to a queen or King. We will return as the location is unbeatable.
For anyone reading this. The Murphy is a full queen. 60" x 84".
And safe travels,
Loved being on the marina.
Perfect size apartment for a couple
Andy's studio apartment was perfect for me and my wife while we were in Key West. Plenty of space for what we needed. The apartment was clean when we arrived. The kitchen was really nice and had plenty of cookware and utensils. The bathroom was nice as well. The shower was big considering it's in a studio apartment. Also, Andy was super easy to deal with and was very quick when responding. Being right next to Hogfish Bar and Grill was great. Plus, being that close to Roostica was a huge plus. I would totally recommend his place to another couple if they are wanting a good place to stay while in Key West.
A hidden gem
I almost do not want to write this review because it is hard enough trying to get a rental date on this unit without a bunch of new people falling in love with it. The unit is as described but everything is very high end.
Andy is a prince and we were the pain in the butt renters who bothered him more than we should. Bride even left her jewelry behind. Close to Key west
The marine is lively enough to provide entertainment if you want to sit in front of the unit and watch the world go by. Don't be put of by the working marina this a great place to stay. The Hogfish restaurant next door is a big perk. French bakery around the corner. Put on two pounds because of that.
Unit was very clean and secure. You will want to rent a golf cart for your stay. Makes keys travel so much easier..
4 week stay makes a true vacation
For the second year in a row my husband and I have stayed at Andy's apartment on Stock Island. And again it made for a fabulous 4 week vacation. The apartment is well maintained with no damage from hurricane Irma to be found. The upgraded sleeper sofa, coffee table and furniture arrangement made the space even more comfortable.
Since this was a return visit, several of the locals remembered us and our friendships became even stronger. Sitting on the docks with coffee or cocktails makes for cheap entertainment and relaxation ( including one manatee sighting). My husband is a big military plane buff, so seeing all the aircraft flying into Boca Chica AF base gave him a thrill. We bring our bikes but renting from We Cycle is very affordable. The bike ride into Key West is about a 14 mile round trip. Very doable if winds are below 12 mph. Otherwise we load them on the car and start our ride at Smathers or Higgs beach area.
Parking in Key West is a big deal (expensive) so having your own safe parking spot just outside the apartment door is a great convenience. Of course being next door to Hogfish resteraunt is convenient and food is delicious. On this trip we visited the new Stock Island El Sibony resteraunt twice. We loved the atmosphere (no wait like at the original KW location) and of course the pork and grilled fish was wonderful. Prices are similar to most all area resteraunts so we would typically cook dinner at the apartment about every other day. The only thing I missed was having ceramic plates and more dish towels. This is such a minor complaint but it just shows you how much we appreciate the availability of Andy's rental. We look forward to our return in 2019.
