  • Best place we've ever stayed in the keys!

    "We had a glorious time in the home. The home was lovely, spacious and met all of our needs! The location cannot be better anywhere else in the keys. We had paddleboards and kayaks delivered from 'paddle the keys' right to our front door and there were so many places to explore right from our own dock. We did have to rig up the ladder on the dock to get down to the water but it was quite doable. We even saw a manatee several times while we were exploring! Daisy, our host was calling before we were even there to let us know she was available whenever we needed her and she was at the house when we arrived. The home is located in a great and interesting neighborhood for walking and watching iguanas. We ate meals right on the second floor porch overlooking the water and spent hours fishing off of the dock. We even managed to catch a few parrotfish which we released after a quick picture! The home is full of character and unique features like bidets and a large square sink in the master bath, and at the same time he kitchen appliances were all modern and up to date. This ranks as a best vacation for us and we will cherish it forever! Martha, thank you for sharing your home and Daisy, thank you for making us comfortable and welcomed! Hope to come back in the future!!"

  • Wonderful experience

    "The listing description was 100% accurate. Our stay was very comfortable . Very clean and well laid out! No problems with our rental. Owners offered great customer service and communication from the very first property inquiry to the refund of our security deposit. Grocery store was close by. Neighborhood was quiet. Lots of room for our boat at the dock and plenty of room for trailer storage. Ocean access was easy. Gas and bait was on the way out and the staff very friendly. I recommend this property to anyone wanting to stay in or near Islamorada. Looking forward to next year!"

  • Christmas Away from home.

    "Spotlessly clean home with everything you need. Loved the backyard complete with laundry facility, pool, hottub, tiki bar with TV. BBQ, outdoor kitchen, outdoor bathroom and shower. Cozy place that felt like home away from home. Close to all shops, groceries, restaurants and great diving. We wished we had our two sons, their wives and two grand kids with us. A lWe would have had a ball. Manatees right in the canal to visit us. Loved our stay."

  • Private Paradise

    "After reading the many positive reviews about the Happy Tarpon house, I have to say my expectations were high. Let me tell you, this house did not disappoint! Many people have stated that the pictures do not do the house justice, and I have to agree. The kitchen was top of the line and had everything we needed (plates, utensils, pots, pans, blender, toaster, etc.), including a lot of the items you would normally need to buy, like foil, Ziploc bags, paper plates. The bathrooms looked brand new, and thanks to their being 3.5 bathrooms in the house, no one ever had to wait. The view from the master bedroom is stunning – what a way to wake up each morning! The deck is so cool, with coral fish swimming all over in the clear water below. Every night we would go out on the deck to watch the HUGE Spiny Lobsters come out to eat for the night. We rented tandem kayaks from PADDLE! the Florida Keys, and had them delivered to the house free of charge. One trip out on the kayaks, right by the deck, we encountered a momma and baby manatee grazing in about 3 to 4 feet of crystal clear water. My daughter was the most excited little girl ever to see them so close (they actually swam right under our kayak). Fishing is great too – I actually caught a nice size barracuda from the deck, which was a lot of fun and quite a workout. We swam in the pool almost 3 times every day we were there, which was so wonderfully refreshing after kayaking or going to one of the many gorgeous beaches nearby. Did I mention the water is crystal clear, which made snorkeling from the deck really enjoyable with so much to see! We rarely needed to use the A/C simply because the breeze from the bay coming in from the doors and windows was perfect! My kids actually set an alarm every morning to get up early, open the sets of french doors, and just be in awe over what they saw! This house is situated in a very private setting – surrounded by palm and mangrove trees. Ellen was very helpful and attentive to every need we had. This is our new permanent first choice for vacation!"
