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.

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.
Andy's apartment at Safe Harbor was the best!!
We stayed for a month, and wished we didn't have to leave. The apartment is very nicely done , and everything looks brand new. The Hog Fish restaurant is five steps from the front door. The marina is a close knit community, and we fit right in,and we have made many new friends. Andy is a text away, if you need him.
Best spot, best deal, can't say enough good things about our stay.
Great little studio off the beaten path
We had a great time staying at Andy's studio in Stock Island. It was tucked away in a small marina, off the beaten path and just the right size for the two of us. We enjoyed most nights cooking in thanks to a well appointed kitchen. The murphy bed was comfortable and we had an adequate supply of linens. Laundry facilities were in walking distance. The bathroom was nice, with high end lighting and a 4x4 shower. We appreciated the table and chairs outside the condo for meals and watching the world go by. We had everything we needed. Andy was kind and helpful and responsive to questions. We would definitely stay here again!
Great Location and Accommodation!
My husband and I booked this studio after days of searching for a place. We had never been to Florida, and were nervous about making the decision on where to stay. Stock Island is perfect distance if you don't want to be in the middle of Key West, and want a quieter spot. It took us on average, about 20 minutes to get to any Key West destination. Andy was extremely helpful with all of our questions, and even suggested more travel dates for us to get cheaper rates from him. We found the studio without issue and check-in was a breeze. Highly suggest eating at the Hogfish Bar & Grill during your stay. We were pleased with the studio, and have nothing negative to say about the area, the people, and our stay. We were able to sit on the dock outside and enjoy the scenery, and even tarpon swimming right out front. The locals were extremely friendly as well. Andy even gave us a short tour of one of his boats the first day we were there. Highly suggest booking this amazing place. If you're looking for something small and relaxing, this is the studio to book. Thanks so much Andy.
Former Residents return home for much needed visit.
Being former residence of the area, we loved this efficiency because it was more local atmosphere than tourist. The apartment itself was very nice and comfortable. Upgrades in all areas. The bathroom/shower was especially nice. The front door view is second to none especially in the early morning. You are close enough to all attractions but far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet that Key West has to offer as well. Being next door to Hogfish was especially convenient. Great food, stiff drinks and a great staff. We enjoy visiting with the bartenders and the locals at the bars. This is a piece of old Key West. Still has that atmosphere that we enjoy so much!
Andy, you have done a magnificent job! We loved this unit and will definitely stay here when we visit. Felt like home away from home. We found the process to book and secure this apartment to be as easy as any we have used before. Loved the personal touch of meeting you. Thank you so much...we'll see you again soon!
