Property description

Our escape haven has an incredible balcony view of the ocean with its sugar white beach and emerald blue water. The condo is a few steps away from the beach. This end unit has more windows for additional light and multiple views. A real plus of end unit condominiums is that they are about 1' wider than interior units, so you get a little more room. And it has beautiful ocean views out 3 windows, from the patio and even from the kitchen. Also, you can see the gorgeous sunsets from all the side windows.
One unique asset is that to the right, outside the front door, is 13 miles of undeveloped beach. Our condo is in Building #2 of the EL Matador Condominium, which is an established secluded community on Okaloosa Island with a private beachside pool, a heated pool at the club house, tennis and basketball courts as well as an exercise room. El Matador is a gated community with 24 hour security. The area is very family friendly. People love the expansive beach for long walks, sunbathing and plenty of swimming. Plus, unlike most condominium locations, there is a good expanse of grassy lawns between the buildings which provides plenty of area for games or simply sitting outside and enjoying the sight and sounds of the ocean.

This unit has just been redecorated and most of the furniture and appliances are new. In addition, a brand new HVAC unit was installed in April, 2012.
This unit is located on the west end of Building 2 on the second floor. You can park right outside the exterior stair well and its just a quick climb up 1 flight of stairs to arrive at the entrance. But there are also elevators available for those times when transporting heavy luggage or other heavy/cumbersome items.
This unit is just a short walk away from the large pool and the white sands and emerald colored water that are so prevalent in this area. And the beach in this area is special because it abutts govenment owned property that is not closed to the public, so the beach just goes on and on and on.
The living room area is furnished with a sofa and 2 easy chairs. The sofa converts into a queen size sleeper . There is a 40' flat screen TV and a blu-ray DVD player. WiFi is available as well as broadband wired access.
The dining area has a large table and 6 chairs.
The kitchen is equipped with most appliances and utensils you will need to prepare meals.
The master bedroom is furnished with a king size bed, night stands, dresser, and a 32' flat screen TV and a DVD player.
The second bedroom is furnished with twin beds separated by a night stand, a chest of drawers and it also has a 32' flat screen TV.

Renters must be at least 28 years old.
Unfortunately, we cannot allow pets nor can there be any smoking in, or around, the unit since the smoke odor tends to get embedded in fabrics and cloth.


Keywords: Ocean View, sleeps 6, beach access, swimming pools, Destin, recent renovations, end unit, 2 bedrooms. Tennis courts, gym, white sands, Wi Fi. El Matador located on a pristine gulf beach, only 6 minutes from Destin, FL, and minutes from shops, restaurants, water recreation and more.
