About the property

Take advantage and enjoy a really fantastic beach condo.


Hello Traveler! Thank you for looking at our unit, we are here to assist you with the booking of this wonderful beach condo. We are dedicated to providing our guests with excellent service and a nice condo. We enjoy receiving inquiries so please contact us and we will gladly provide quotes and answer any questions you may have.

Gulf front, private balcony opens to master bedroom and living room directly facing the beach. This is a lovely two bedroom unit which is located on Okaloosa Island, the barrier island separating Fort Walton Beach and Destin. It is the best vacation destination for the family, golfer, shopper or fisherman. There are no high rises in sight, as nothing over 7 stories is allowed on Okaloosa Island. Because this building has a mere 68 units, and plenty of waterfront, the white beaches and the teal Gulf waters are never crowded, making it simply paradise! Many people say that these are the most beautiful beaches that they have ever seen. Television, surveys and magazines rate the Emerald Coast among the top ten in the world for its beautifully colored waters and sand as white as snow. You can relax with your morning coffee or a romantic dinner on your private and watch the dolphins jumping only a few hundred feet away! You have great views of the gulf from the kitchen, living room, and master bedroom as well. This unit also has free Wi-Fi and televisions in every room.

Great unit!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this unit! The views were great, the unit had everything we needed and the unit was very clean. The pool and the property are well maintained. The beach was beautiful and it was very quiet with the complex at the end of the beach. We look forward to coming back!

Nice unit, Easy booking process, Prompt response

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed at The El Matador for 16 years in a row. We were actually married in front of the Matador on the white Sandy beach. This is one of the nicer units, and is the reason for the 4 star rating. It saddens me that the property is starting to decline. The maintenance standards are not what they once were. Only 1 poorly operating elevator as the other one was not operating the entire week. Luggage carts rusting and falling apart. Tiles busted around the pool. Pool needs some attention even simple things like cleaning would be an improvement. None of these issues are directly related with the unit, so glad to provide the owner/management with a positive review.

Unfortunately, we are looking for a new location moving forward for our annual trip due only to the decline of the property and facilities not the unit we stayed in.

one of the nicer el matador units I've rented. good view of gulf, sunrise on balcony and sunset from back door. DO NOT BOOK THRU VRBO, THEY CHARGE $73.00 SVC CHARGE TO BOOK IMMEDIATELY. send message or call property management company and pay them directly. Since expedia bought vrbo, careful or they will stick it to you.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed your stay with us and I hope you will return soon. This condo is at the end of Santa Rosa Blvd where the beaches are less crowded. It was just refurnished last year. I appreciate you taking the time to submit a review. Thank you again!
