Contact us for details.

Your very own, GULF-SIDE paradise is just six miles west of Destin and two miles east of Fort Walton Beach, on it's very own island, Okaloosa Island. The area is renowned for the Gulf of Mexico's emerald green waters and its 'sugar white' sand beaches. The Island is conveniently located close to Outlet shopping, dining, golf, the Gulfarium (see a dolphin show!), amusement and water parks, as well as every imaginable water sport the whole family can enjoy.

Paradise begins as you walk down the corridor to your condo enjoying the view of 17 miles of undeveloped beach. Our fifth-floor, vibrantly re-decorated condominium, is located just a very short stroll to the Gulf (about 100 yards) and you have a magnificient view of the gulf from your living room and kitchen windows. Or take in the view with your morning coffee on your private balcony.

This two bedroom, two bath spacious GULF-VIEW (1,035 sq.feet) beach condo comfortably accommodates 8 guests with a king in the master bedroom, two double beds in the second bedroom, and a queen sleeper sofa in the living room. Linens are provided, the kitchen is fully equipped and you'll find tv/vcr's and dvd's in the bedrooms and living room, as well as a selection of movies to enjoy. The condo is ideal for weeklong family vacations, weekend getaways, househunting visits, or temporary lodging for relocated executives.

The El Matador is a popular beachfront resort boasting two pools (one heated), tennis courts, sauna, whirlpool, basketball court, beach volleyball, game room, exercise room, plus weekly activites for our winter guests. All of this is within a gated, gulf-front resort community!

To the west of the resort is 17 miles of undeveloped beach, for those long walks and shell collecting. The Island doesn't draw the large crowds and traffic of the neighboring areas, but you'll find great restaurants, mini-golf, water sports, the Gulfarium (see a Dolphin show!), and the Fishing Pier right on the Island. Destin is only 6 miles away where you will find fishing and dolphin watching charters, night spots, Outlet shopping and other popular vacation activities.

This beautiful, comfortable, convenient, and economical condominium is the ideal place for your vacation. We hope you find our piece of paradise as soothing and enjoyable as we do, and you, too, create lasting memories!!! This is a NON SMOKING UNIT, NO PETS!

Please check out our website for other area condos. We have one, two and three bedroom condos on the Island, a 3 bedroom, 3 bath gulf-front unit in Destin and a 3 bedroom, 3 bath gulf front unit in Perdido Key, Fl.

* NOTE: $250 booking deposit; Cleaning fee of $85 and 11% Florida tax added to the rental AND cleaning amounts. Three-night minimum stay. Please no smoking and no pets! WE ACCEPT CHARGE CARDS, VISA, MASTERCARD & DISCOVER.

All of the essentials of home!

  • 4 of 5

I love El Matador and Linda's condo did not disappoint! It is not the fanciest or have the most up to date décor but what it offers is peace and relaxation at an affordable price. The condo does have everything a family needs. It even has beach chairs, body boards, sand toys and an umbrella available to take to the beach!!! There was an outlet that wasn't working in the bathroom that was repaired within hours of me reporting it and without any effort on my part. My family and I really enjoyed our uncomplicated stay. Thanks Linda for sharing your condo. We plan to return.
