Gorgeous, Relaxing, Fun: Can't Wait to Come Back
"We recently returned from a blissful weeklong stay at this Islamorada home. It's a fabulous place for families with young children! My two toddlers loved the manmade beach (which felt totally contained, clean, and safe) and all the beach toys available; the hot tub; having fires in the fire pit at night; and, yes, it must be said, watching their nightly cartoon on the huge flat-screen TV. My husband and I loved the location and the fact that we could spread out and roam around and look at water all day long. And my mom, who came with us, loved having her own room downstairs to retreat to for some peace and quiet. We all loved the coconuts -- tons of coconut water and fresh coconuts the entire trip!
Islamorada is an amazing destination and we can't wait to go back. Even the tourist stuff (feeding the tarpons at Robbie's, etc.) is undeniably fun. We loved our experience at the Dolphin Research Center, swimming behind the Islamorada Library, and kicking back at dusk each night at Morada Bay Cafe, but honestly much of the time we just enjoyed the house and all there was to do. We bought Key West pink shrimp at the local fish market down the road and cooked at home most of the time. We also rented a double kayak at Robbie's and had some really great sunset paddles.
As I mentioned to the owner, the only issues we had were the slow Internet (but that wasn't really a problem) and the fact that basic supplies at the house (toilet paper, paper towels, dish soap, etc.) are limited. Stop at the Winn-Dixie in Tavernier on your way down and save yourself a shopping trip.
All in all, a fantastic vacation. Thank you!"

"This was my 4th year at this property. The family had a great time again without any problems. The house is well taken care of and very clean. Everything close by, the grocery store, restaurants, bait shops and the ocean access by boat is only minutes away. It's a great place to just sit back and relax and have fun!"

"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!"
