About the Property
Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)
Our condo unit is unique with its direct views of both the Gulf and sound from this top (sixth) floor unit! As you enter the Condo, you will be awestruck with the beauty of the Gulf waters through the sliding glass doors to the terrace in front of you. And, the kitchen window looks out to the boats floating on the Santa Rosa sound.
The condo is located in a very spacious resort. El Matador is a
gated community with 24-hour security. The guards are visible and located directly across from our building. The resort sits on 13 acres of land at the end of a row of condos and adjacent to 17-miles of uninhabited beach. There are two swimming pools on the property; two hot tubs and a brand new 2006 Fitness Center.
We hope you will check out our second home! We know you will enjoy

Our condo is located on an uncrowded island in Fort Walton Beach, Florida. Okaloosa Island. It's approximately six miles from Destin. In Fort Walton Beach and Destin there are countless things to do and see. There is the Gulfarium that entertains vacationers of all ages with live sea life shows daily. There are many championship golf courses within a 15-minute drive! Miniature golf, adventure parks, go-carts are right down the road! For teens and people of all ages, a new boardwalk was built in Fort Walton Beach--two miles down the road. There are restaurants, volleyball nets, game rooms, souvenir shops, etc. to entertain the young and old. In addition, the Destin Commons, Silver Sands Factory Outlets and Santa Rosa Mall provide all your shopping needs. This is a fisherman's haven, too! Take a glass bottom boat tour and snorkel in the crystal clear turquoise green waters of the Emerald Coast! Then there is my favorite: sinking my toes in the indescribable baby powder white sand!
Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: Shane & Lynn Gunnning, Owners Shane and I have been married 30 years and live in Coopersburg, PA. We have two grown children--Brent & Megan--and two cats! Updating and visiting our condo is a top priority, and we fly down a few times a year in between our work commitments. Shane is a Marketing Director, & I am an elementary school computer special teacher.
Why the Owner Chose Okaloosa Island, FL, USA:
After visiting all corners of our favorite state, we discovered the hidden secret: The Emerald Coast of the Panhandle! The white snow-like sand that never gets hot and squeaks when you walk....the teal-colored crystal clear calm water....the very special southern hospitality...and specifically, the uncrowded destination & last frontier developing... we fell in love with it all!
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We examined many properties in and around Fort Walton Beach and Destin, Florida. What sold us on El Matador resort is the acreage and quietness. The 17 miles of undeveloped beach adjacent to this resort is total peace...
