About Ellen Wilson

I grew up in Jackson Hole, Wyoming with a passion for fly fishing. I own and manage Snake River Angler, the largest fly fishing outfitter in Jackson Hole and in Grand Teton National Park. I operate two retail fishing stores and employ 20 full time Wyoming fishing guides.

My love of fishing and the ocean led me and my family to Islamorada for the best in salt-water fishing. My wife loves to fish and the 5 children often go out in the boat with us.

Ellen Wilson purchased this house in 2009

Why Ellen Wilson chose Islamorada

I walked into the back yard of 118 Madeira, stood on the dock and saw a manatee swimming in the canal. I could also see schools of big mangroove snapper hanging out by the pilings. I have fished all over the world from Belize to Mongolia. I could not pass up the chance to buy Happy Tarpon after 22 years of visiting and fishing here. Islamorada is unmatched for the variety and access to backcountry and offshore fishing anywhere in the world. It is also a peaceful, private location for the family. Islamorada is good for the fisherman and the family with all the activities available in the area.

What makes this house unique

The variety of water activities is boundless with snorkeling, scuba diving, kayaking, stand up paddle-boarding, boating, wind surfing, kite boarding, fly fishing, reef fishing, and offshore ocean fishing. The beauty of the Everglade National Park is right out the back door. White herons sit on the edge of the pool and look in our living room window (!!) and the manatees come and visit regularly all winter. Ever since I saw my first 100 plus pound tarpon jumping out of the water with my fly in its mouth I have been in love with Islamorada and the Florida Keys.

Great vacation for family and fishing

  • 5 of 5
We had a very nice week at Happy Tarpon, everything was in perfect shape and comfortable. It is perfectly situated, very close to everything - dining, kayaks, fishing, boating and scuba diving. The views and especially sunsets are spectacular.
Many thanks to Ellen (owner) for this wonderful vacation, we definitely would like to come back!

Awesome Vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5
We had the pleasure of renting the Happy Tarpon in June and the home far surpassed our expectations!!! We truly were staying in paradise. We had great weather, the sunsets from the pool area were awesome, as well as the morning sun rises. It was also an added bonus to be so near the Lorelei. We could walk to the restaurant & enjoy their live bands from the comfort of our pool at the Happy Tarpon! Boating and fishing the area is always a pleasure and we even had a resident manatee pay us daily visits, too cool!!! The home was a perfect fit for our family & our friends! Our only regret is that is was only one week and we had to leave. Can't wait for our next visit! Thank you Happy Tarpon for sharing your wonderful home with so many. It made some very wonderful family memories!!!! Sincerely, the Kelly's & Smith's

Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from our week at the Happy Tarpon. Words cannot express how pleased we were with our accommodations! The sunsets were incredible, the music coming from the nearby restaurant was awesome! Loved the pool, dock, house - everything!!
The pictures do not do this house justice, the inside and outside was very family friendly and so comfortable and private.
We saw Manatee, lot's of fish, and Igwana's right at the property. My boys loved snorkling around the dock and seeing all the amazing fish and other sealife.
We had a fantastic time and will be enjoying our memories of our time at The Happy Tarpon and the Keys for a long time!!

Thank you so much for sharing your piece of paradise with us!

Absolutely wonderful

  • 5 of 5
Have used VRBO many times before and have never been so pleased with our choice. We are a family of 6 and we were more than comfortable with the Happy Tarpon. The pictures do not do it justice. Amazing sunsets. The views everyday for dinner were incredible. Most days we ate outside or at the table with the doors open. We brought our kayaks and was an easy launch from the dock. The kids had a wonderful time everyday with the pool. Very close to anything you need. Owner Ellen very easy to coordinate with. Thank you so much for a wonderful vacation. We will come back we had an amazing time.

Perfect for the family and fishing!!

  • 5 of 5
We just got back from our week at Happy Tarpon and are looking at dates for next year! It was absolutely perfect. We had a boat rental for a week so the dock worked out great. Our 2 year old loved loved loved the pool, the dock and the rocks!! We have stayed oceanside in past visits and this was a perfect change to watch the sun set. There were 6 of us and having the separate bathrooms for each bedroom makes it seem even that much bigger. No one tripping over one another and we could spread out. (not that we spent much time in the house!!) This was a great home in a perfect setting and the pictures do NOT do this home justice. Loved the kitchen into dining out to back table flow. We cooked 6 nights! We caught Tarpon, sharks, rays, (those 2 not on purpose of course) and a bunch of Jacks. If you are able to get a week here, DO IT!!! We have tried in years past and this home books up so plan now. Can't wait to go back, thank you Happy Tarpon!

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a week's stay at The Happy Tarpon and we didn't want to leave! The property is private, the house is very comfortable, and easily accomodated six people. The small pool was an added treat and a great place to cool off on those hot summer days. The views from the house were absolutely beautiful and we enjoyed the music from the Loralei. We rented kayaks and enjoyed paddling through the mangroves and seeing stingrays, fish, and other sea creatures. The dock was a great place to relax in a chair under the umbrella and read a book or just look at the water. We saw a stingray, a manatee (who loved having water sprayed at him) and fish right off the deck and we had iguanas to visit several times. Although we visited Key West and the Dolphin Research Center in Marathon one day, our favorite place was "at home" relaxing at The Happy Tarpon. Thanks to the owners for allowing us to enjoy their home for a vacation we won't soon forget!!
