Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

Looking for Paradise? Here it is at the El Matador! Has to be the most sought of family vacation resort on the Emerald Coast. A secluded condominium nestled between the beautiful white sand dunes and the sparkling Emerald Waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

El Matador is truly a beach resort. Just two miles down Santa Rosa Blvd at the end of the Island you will find us – secluded but still just a few minutes to all the amenities that Destin and Fort Walton Beach have to offer. Just six miles down Hwy. 98 you can enjoy Destin – “ The Worlds Luckiest Fishing Village” – charter a private trip or take the kids out on a group boat and catch dinner. While in Destin enjoy fine restaurants, shopping, and golfing on some of the best golf courses in the Panhandle of Florida. Hard to believe that you might need a day off from the beach but if you do take the family to Big Kahunas Water Park in the center of old Destin. Much more than just a water park… it’s a day of fun!

Back at the El Matador enjoy the large grass areas between our buildings just right for family fun and games. With two pools, his and her whirlpool, and saunas just right for your tired muscles after a game of tennis on one of our courts, or in our fitness center. We are located at the end of Okaloosa Island a small barrier Island between Fort Walton Beach and Destin. This gated community with thirteen miles of undeveloped beaches to the west is sure to have you longing to return.

Reviewer Comments:

Our family has been coming to Fort walton for over 40 years. Most years we come down in July and then back again in September. Great water, fishing, beach, and the El Matador is always superior. This location allows for miles of access to Eglin Air Force beaches and as compared to D stin there is zero traffic

Reviewer Comments:

El Matador is a great property and a wonderful location and I've stayed there many times. The only complaint about my last stay is the bedroom needs to be rearranged to take advantage of the beautiful ocean view while laying in bed.

Owner's Response: ohhhh that sounds like a wonderful idea, i will suggest that to the owner, to turn the bed around. We are so happy that you enjoyed it, and will always be looking forward to seeing you again.

Reviewer Comments:

Condo is clean, but dated. Location is amazing - coffee every morning on the balcony with an amazing view! If you're coming for the beach or the pool, toes in the sand - this place is perfect! Kitchen is adequately stocked, bed and furnishings are comfortable. Chris Ault at Alicia J. Hollis Realty is GREAT! She is available, attentive and cares very much about your experience!

Reviewer Comments:

We have been staying at El Matador for 25 years. Although the condo is one of the oldest on the beach, we LOVE the location because of the proximity to the undeveloped land on the west side. This was our first visit to EM 444. The unit was beautifully decorated and clean, but the kitchen equipment was terribly lacking. We like to cook while at the beach, and this kitchen was not set up to allow us to cook what we usually do. AJ Hollis Realty is a great group to do business with, and frankly, it is because they rent unit 444 that we reserved it. We look forward to kitchen improvements being made before we make reservations for next year.
