Property description


The sugar-white, sand beach, emerald water, and spacious pristine acres of island resort living are available for you, at our condominium in the popular El Matador beachfront resort! The heated pool and tennis courts are adjacent to our building, while the resort boasts of many activities which include two pools, sauna, whirlpool, tennis courts, basketball court, beach volleyball, updated exercise room, plus weekly activities for our winter guests. All of this is within a gated, gulf-front, resort community!

The condominium comfortably accommodates six, with a king-size bed in each of the two bedrooms and a NEW sleeper sofa in the living room. Located on the second floor, there is an elevator available & our balcony faces the intercostal waterway. Linens are provided for 6 and the kitchen is fully equipped for your needs. We also have wireless high speed internet! The newly redecorated (Including all new kitchen< new bathroom, & new flooring) condominium interior, new king mattresses/bedding & new flat screen TV, completes your stay with Florida beach decor. And your kids will love all the beach toys we have for guests to use!

We understand the importance of family get-aways & have maintained the same low rates over the past several years, to keep our condo budget friendly.

To the west of the resort is 17 miles of undeveloped beach, for those long walks and shell collecting. A few miles to the east are plenty of vacation activities, such as parasailing, marine life park, great restaurants, charters for fishing and dolphin watching, plenty of shopping (outlet mall), go carts, golf, night life, water parks, and other recreational activities. Of course, building sand castles on our beach, or quietly relaxing during the breathtaking sunsets, are two specialties of this favorite family destination.

We would love to have you as our guests to make your own wonderful lifelong memories!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We have always enjoyed beach vacations and once we discovered the gorgeous sugar white sands & clear turquoise waters of Okaloosa Island/Fort Walton Beach, we decided to purchase a condo to have a place of paradise to call our own & also share with others thru vacation rentals! We truly enjoy assisting others in their vacation plans and have fun keeping the condo filled with all sorts of fun beachy novelties, so the Florida atmosphere can be enjoyed inside, as well as outside on the beach :-) We've experienced many, many other beaches, in several states, but found this one to be one we want to continue coming back to. There are numerous unique features of this area, unlike any other...... I love getting to know our renters a little bit! It is exciting to hear of their stays & see their family vacation photos :-) WELCOME TO THE FABULOUS GULF COAST!!!

Why the Owner Chose Okaloosa Island, FL, USA:
The El Matador is a very unique property, being at the far west end of Santa Rosa Blvd & at the end of the street, with nothing buy miles & miles of government owned Island between our resort & Navarre! You can walk for miles along the beach, & often be the only one around :-)
