"Loved the convenience of this home to our favorite restaurants and amazing snorkel spots.
House is very well equipt with everything we needed. Owners were very helpful providing us with info on local boat ramp."

"I had the good fortune to find this gem of a rental in 2014 on VRBO and have returned each year since. Being located in the Middle Keys makes the full breath of the Keys accessible within a relatively short drive. I've discovered something new each visit.
As previously mentioned, the unit is beautiful, roomy and well maintained. The condo association has access to a private sandy beach on the Gulfside, a recently upgraded protected inland channel dock for boats, access to a gated private boat launch, and an on-site manager
The Islamorada/Matecumbe area is world renown for its fishing and water sports. There is an abundance of restaurants in the area, many of which with cook your 'catch' for a small fee. For in-unit meal staples there are available - Publix grocery stores within a ~30 minute drive (Key Largo or Marathon Key).
The unit/complex is located ~10 minutes for the Islamorada proper with it's restaurants & activities. It is about 3 blocks off of Overseas Highway (Route 1) which shelters it from foot/auto traffic & noise. The evening are quite and restful. Make sure to enjoy the beautiful sunset from the Gulfside beach....truly remarkable!
The unit owner provides cable TV, phone, air condition, etc. When temperatures allowed, I often turned off the A/C and opened the windows to enjoy the fresh air breezes that prevail in the Keys. One feature of the unit that I really enjoyed was the large window array on the Gulfside of the unit that overlooks Florida Bay. More personally the unit owner is very gracious and accommodating....a pleasure to work with. I'd recommend this unit without hesitation.
Having found this gem in Paradise and been back once, I plan on returning again!"

"The house and the accommodations were great. This was my first time to rent a home in the Keys and I will certainly be back. The owners were extremely helpful and as nice as they could be. It was comforting knowing that I could call them and get immediate answers to my questions, and I had a lot of questions since I came with my own boat and this was my first trip. Our location in the Keys could not have been better, all the amenities we could need were less than 5 miles in either direction. We are already looking at our calendars to see when we can return!"

"We stayed at the Happy Tarpon for one week in September. There were five adults in our group (our grown children). The house was absolutely perfect for our trip. Everyone had plenty of space and the 3 1/2 bathrooms were really a nice extra for us when we were all trying to get ready to go somewhere. We rented a kayak and stand-up paddleboard and had a great time trying them out...when we could pry ourselves from the pool! We kayaked right beside three manatee near our dock. We saw double water spouts! We stayed up and watched "Sharknado" (found the DVD on the bookcase). We could hardly get my daughter out of the pool and really enjoyed the privacy of the back patio, dock and pool area. We enjoyed numerous sunsets, despite some rainy weather. It was really as close to perfect as I can imagine. The kids have already asked if we can make this an annual outing! Much thanks to the owner for their gracious hospitality and for sharing their lovely home with us. It was truly a vacation we will always remember. We all hope we can return sometime!"
