About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

THIS CONDO HAS A SATURDAY TO SATURDAY REQUIREMENT DURING PEAK SEASON!

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:

The rental was a premium price for majorly outdated kitchen and bathrooms.Really? The closet doors in bedrooms doesnt close properly.The only plus was the view.Of all things even that was bad with green seaweed the entire week.Very dissappointed.Also no extra bath towels.Just one for the four of us.

The condo was clean, efficient, lots of room, and the BEST view on Okaloosa Island! The pool was great size and multiple chairs available. The beach was perfect. The beds were great and the tv's are large. When we visit Okaloosa Island again we will definitely be staying here!

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at the El Matador unit 351, a direct view of the water, and a very comfortable unit. This is gulf front condo, that you will enjoy having breakfast on the balcony and your lunch, and at nite just watch the sunset. Most of all you can also see the dolphins off the balcony and that is the best part. Hope we see you again.

Reviewer Comments:

The best thing about this unit is the view! It was really nice being at the end of Okaloosa's developed area. The beach was clean, the grounds well-maintained, and the property staff was friendly, yet professional. You can rent paddle boards and kayaks very reasonably, right there on the condo's private beach. Don't let reviews that mention out-dated decor turn you away... the furniture is clean and comfortable, and did I mention the view is awesome? (and if it rains, there's a huge TV to look at!)
