Beautiful waterfront property with unobstructed views of the sunset. A well equipped home with caring owners, Happy Tarpon is a very comfortable rental for two couples, as we were. Close to great restaurants or simply lounge around the property and cook-out on the gas BBQ. Wonderful experience!

This place is like home away from home. Everything needed was available. A dock available for your boat which gave easy access to the water for fishing, snorkeling or a leisure boat ride. A refreshing pool to lounge in after a day of play. A beautiful patio to sit on and watch the amazing sunsets. Our favorite was the visits from the manatees by the dock. Walking distance to a cute waterfront restaurant.

We had a wonderful week as a family at Happy Tarpon. Great views on the bay from almost every place around and in the house. A spacious house that provided everything you need for a perfect vacation. Wildlife is close including iguanas, lizards, birds, manatees and fish. We loved the place and stayed there most of the week. Thank you Ellen for always being available to answer questions. There is only one place we want to go next time: Happy Tarpon.

We so enjoyed our 2 week stay here with another couple. It was convenient to walk to stores and restaurants. Lorelei restaurant is a hop, skip, and jump from here and we loved their sunset entertainment on Mondays, Weds, Fridays ... an entertaining magician. We cherished our mornings and evenings at Happy Tarpon on the patio/pool area. So quiet and peaceful and beautiful views of the bay. We had daily entertainment by local wild life, especially a bold/friendly great egret, lizards and even manatees. Ellen is wonderful ... very helpful and quick to answer emails, and calls and has the house equipped with everything you would need.

If you cannot get happy at Happy Tarpon then you just cannot get happy anywhere. This place is great, so relaxing just the perfect place to unwind. My wife and I stayed one week with our son ( 21 ) and our daughter ( 19 ) and they had a great time as well, later in the week my brother came down with his son and we had plenty of room. We fished from the deep water dock and from the the other dock as well, we caught a bunch of snapper and even a few nurse sharks from the dock. The kitchen is well equipped and everything works well. There is the Trading post grocery store just a few minutes away but there is also a Win Dixie ( much cheaper ) about 6 miles north. We usually like to explore other options when we rent a place but my wife and I both said that we would come back with no problem. If you have any questions about fishing or anything else that the owner ( Ellen ) can't answer then feel free to contact me at Natpawn@yahoo.com. Ellen is great and very punctual with returning phone calls and replying to emails. I will highly recommend Happy Tarpon to anyone looking for a place in Islamorada. Lee

we have spent many vacations in the Keys: from Islamorada to Key West. Happy Tarpon has it all! The photos don't show the whole experience. Perfect accomodations, pristine, with pool, boat dock and close to all Islamorada points of interest. Friendly, helpful owners made our stay even better. Don't pass this up>

My wife, two daughters, a friend and I just spent 7 delightful nights at the Happy Tarpon House. Everything was perfect: the three bedrooms, kitchen, bathrooms, living room, and best of all the patio, pool, dock and access to the bay. We grilled on the patio and walked to our favorite restaurants and shops. We rented kayaks and stand up paddle boards for a week from Cowboy Outfitters up the street, they delivered them to the house, and we spent our days using them up and down the shoreline in back of the house. The views into the bay from the dock are beautiful. Watch the sun go down in the evening from the dock and patio. The pool is perfect and was used daily. You can walk virtually everywhere you would want to go in Islamorada from this house. Could not imagine a more convenient and beautiful place to spend a week.
