We boated and visited Key West for many years .Have made many good friends here.
Having spent 8 years traveling the east coast by boat ,we settled on Key West as our favorite Landin spot!
Why this property? We looked for many years in probably 500 homes throughout Key West.
Hidden Cottage is just that. Off the main "path" !
Secluded and quite with many rear around residence in the area.
It took one walk through to decide. Includes the much converted off street parking so dear to Key West homes. The parking space is available renters .
We came to Key West for about 12 years before we found a home here. Purchased in 2016 there have been continuing upgrades to everything from landscaping , impact windows, and just general maintenance and up keep.
Griffin Lane is by far one of the most hidden of all locations in Key West.Just off of Southard street you never guess what awaits at the very end of the lane.
Hidden Cottage of course and for good reason.Seeing is believing .Hope you enjoy as much as we have !
Perfect pet-friendly vacation cottage
The house is tucked away on a lane in Old Town within walking distance to everywhere. It is very private with lush plantings and a variety of outdoor spaces to sit. The house is well equipped and the owners were extremely friendly and helpful. Our dog Poppy was with us and loved to explore the fenced in yard.
