I will no longer be managing my property as of Nov. 15th. All new inquiries will need to go through EMMCO at 850-796-2507. If you already have a reservation I am still handling those. Newly Decorated. All new appliances April 2016. SATURDAY to SATURDAY ONLY. BEACH SERVICE INCLUDED March through Oct. 31. Okaloosa Island is a thin strip of land that has condos on the oceanfront and private residences on the inter coastal. No high rise crowds at our beach. Walk the miles of undeveloped beach next to us or walk two miles east to the pier with its shops and restaurants. We are in building 4 which means we have a view of the Gulf from the back as well as the front.WE ARE A NON-SMOKING UNIT. NO PETS ALLOWED ON PROPERTY.




We require that our renters be 30 years or older.


Enjoy the gorgeous changing green and turquoise colors of the ocean while laying on the bed. Have breakfast out on the tiled balcony or watch the gulls, pelicans and dolphins from our condo.

Collect interesting shells along the beach or rent a kayak and be more adventuresome. Beaches groomed daily. Our unit faces the gulf and its white sand beaches as well as a large pool.

PLEASE NOTE: Our calender is not always current. Please call for availability. WE ACCEPT ONLY FULL WEEK RENTALS, SATURDAY-SATURDAY.

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.

Antique in downtown Fort Walton or see the Indian Museum. Shuttle buses run from property into Fort Walton daily.

Keywords: Top/6th floor with spectacular ocean view. Large living space, newly renovated.

About EMMCO 850-796-2507

I used to live in the Atlanta area with my husband, but we have since moved to the North Georgia mountain area by Jasper. We have been managing our property ourselves since around 2006. We bought the condo in 2004. The more we go down to Okaloosa the more we are convinced we bought where the best beach is.

EMMCO 850-796-2507 purchased this condo in 2004

Why EMMCO 850-796-2507 chose Fort Walton Beach

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. El Matador is built like a fortress. The property is very well managed and we see improvements bein made all the time.

What makes this condo unique

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. WE ARE ONE OF THE FEW RENTALS TO INCLUDE BEACH SERVICE.

Comfortably accommodating for a family of 4, Great views of pool and gulf, Updated & well decorated!

  • 4 of 5

Thank you very much for sharing your condo with us! Our stay was very pleasurable. The unit was very accommodating, had a great view (of the gulf and the pool), and made our family comfortable. My two kids enjoyed sleeping on the day bed, and there was also plenty of room on the very comfortable couch. The laundry was next door to the unit, but not loud at all. I never had to wait to do laundry. If I'm in the Ft. Walton area again I will certainly prefer condo #465 at El Matador!

Debra is such a nice lady. From the very first email, to the very last phone call after checking out from the property. When we return to Ft. Walton we will not go anywhere else. The views, the property, and the people are excellent.

Thanks Again Debra!!!

I don't even know where to start in describing how wonderful my stay was! Debbie is great to work with from the initial booking to the very end of my stay. Every year my wife allows me a week to decompress.......I'm in the Air Force and, after several deployments, I love to go to the beach for therapy. :-) This was not my first stay at the El Dorado but there is no doubt it was the BEST! The condo is updated with new furniture and appliances and very tastefully decorated, however, I didn't spend much time indoors.........did I mention I love the beach? :-) There are so many reasons I can give to rent this condo...being on the 6th floor, working with Debbie, beautiful condo, it's the last condo before the Eglin range....but there is one more reason to rent this condo. They include beach service in their rental! YES! That was a HUGE benefit! Out of all the rental units at the El Dorado there are only two that include the beach service....this is one of them. Not sure where I'll be next year but if possible I'll be renting this condo again. Take my word for it, it's the best one at the El Dorado!

Just returned from our most relaxing vacation by the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. Having our morning coffee on the patio, taking in the gulf breeze and the view of the sugar sand beach was our awesome morning ritual. The condo is well maintained, with newer furniture and the bed is COMFORTABLE. The community is gated.

The best condo we have stayed at in El Matador! This condo was super clean with a great open floor plan! We loved the gorgeous view of the beach from the balcony! In a great location close to pool and the beach! Loved the upgrades in the kitchen and bathroom and decor was modern and pretty! Completely stocked with everything you need! Highly recommend!

Had a great time!

  • 5 of 5

Condo was very spacious and beautifully decorated. It was convenient to the laundry room as well. Will definitely consider staying here again. The only "issue" we had was a LOT of seaweed in the water, but nothing we can do about that. Condo was great!
