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.

Incredible views

  • 5 of 5
This place exceeded our expectations by far. Pictures don't do it justice at all. This was the most amazing home ever. We have stayed in the keys before but this place is now our absolute favorite. Fishing, swimming,water views, sunsets all incredible. I even rented a paddleboard and kayak from a place right down the road and had it delivered. We loved everything about this home !!!!! Very secluded, clean and beautiful. hearing the lore lei music by the pool was a plus. Paddle boarding to the lore lei for a drink was fun. We saw iguanas, manatees, tarpon and beautiful fish. This place will def become a tradition for us yearly. The only thing I missed was not being able to have my dog...because he loves to paddle board with me but can understand why people don't allow pets when they have gorgeous homes. I give this house a perfect score and cannot thank the owners enough for having everything you could possibly need in a vacation home.

GREAT house and Super Clean!

  • 5 of 5
This house is fantastic! When you walk in the door you will be amazed at how clean the house is! Spotless! The beds are very comfortable and the linens and quilts, pillows, etc., all very high quality. The kitchen is modern and has everything you need for cooking. The pantry is huge and it was actually stocked with paper towels, toilet tissue, Kleenex, plastic forks, paper plates, plastic cups, popcorn, and some canned food. We rent frequently and we usually have to go out and buy all of that 'stuff'. There were plenty of spices, although I brought a bunch with me, I really didn’t need to. There are plenty of beach towels, and the bathroom towels are very nice and plush. Washer and dryer work well and there was detergent, softener, etc. The grounds are lovely. The little dock is adorable and perfect for sitting and chilling with a cocktail. The pool is super nice after being on the boat all day. The only (and I stress only) complaint I would have is the pool water was very, very warm. There aren't any trees or shade for the pool so it was a bit too warm for my liking. We brought our boat so docking right there was perfect too. We saw lots of manatee! The grill was broken but we bought a little hibachi to cook on, so no big deal and Ellen was genuinely upset about the gas grill now working. She is very nice to deal with. The AC works well and the house was nice and cool. You are nearby lots of restaurants the Trading Post is quite handy for groceries. Getting to the reefs is easy too! We would stay there again and recommend this to anyone looking to chill out in the 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.
