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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Okaloosa Island, FL, USA:
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.

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