El Matador condo description

As you drive into El Matador, prepare for a relaxing stay surrounded by the beauty and tranquility of Florida's Gulf. Leave your worries behind as our 24 hour security guards provide safety and a peace of mind for your family or guests.

Our condo has two spacious bedrooms with two full bathrooms to sleep a total of five. The stunning master suite is furnished with a king bed and ample dresser and closet space for all of your belongings. The 2nd bedroom has access to a full bathroom as well as a dresser and closet space for your kids or guests. The over-sized couch sleeps one person more comfortably than any pull-out couch.

Take a short walk to the beach-front pool, Gulf ocean, or beach volleyball. Fish for Pompano right on the beach and prepare your catch on one of three outdoor grills. The unit is also a few steps away from a more private, secondary pool, indoor jacuzzis, sauna, exercise room, tennis courts, basketball court, and charcoal grill. The complex has plenty of room for outdoor sports and activities on large open grass areas sprinkled with palm trees. This beautiful Spanish-style condo complex is the last development on the island providing miles of walkable beaches and a clear view of beach sunsets from your top-floor balcony.

Okaloosa island offers a quiet and tropical experience including the Gulf's soft, white, quartz sand that leads to crystal-clear, emerald green water. Only a 5-10 min drive over the bridge to Destin which is home to the largest outdoor mall on the panhandle, outlet shopping, full and mini golf courses, seafood restaurants, nightlife, deep sea fishing, boat/jet-ski rentals, dolphin tours, and a wide array of watersport rentals and activities.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: I currently work as a nurse anesthetist in Fort Walton Beach and have 2 beautiful children who are both now in college. My son and I enjoy managing our condo rentals as we take pride in the effort made to decorate and maintain our previous residence. Because of my work hours, my son (age 24) handles rental inquiries while I manage the payments and well-being of the guests who decide to rent our condo. It has been almost 3 years since we started doing this and we continue to enjoy making our guests happy in beautiful Florida!

Why the Owner Chose El Matador:
I first bought this condo when I moved to Florida to start my new job. My son had just gone to college and I was living here with my daughter for 2 years. I decided to move after my daughter started college at FSU but couldn't let go of our beautiful condo! Instead of selling it we chose instead to preserve the interior decorating and rent it out to friends and guests through VRBO.
