Unique to our property is a large grassy area to throw a football, Frisbee or kick a soccer ball. Fly kites along the beach as well or take a bike ride. Beach service is available during high season for an additional charge.

Have fun at the restaurants on the Island as well as the pier or visit the Gulfarium then take a quick scenic drive east on Highway 98 to Destin and its many restaurants and shopping, but leave the congestion behind when you come back to the Island.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: I used to live in the Atlanta area with my husband, but we have sice moved to the North Georgia mountain area by Jasper. We have been managing our property ourselves for the last 4 of our 8yrs of ownership. The more we go down to Okaloosa the more we are convinced we bought where the best beach is.

Why the Owner Chose El Matador:
We chose Okaloosa Island because of our awesome view of the ocean. We are so close to the beach. It's quiet and less hectic than Destin, but close enough to go shopping and out to eat.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We are one of the largest one bedroom condos you will find. We have 13 miles of undeveloped beach next door that is available for walking...who else has that! 50% of our rentals come from repeat guests. Stay with us you'll love it.
