Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

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 totally enjoyed our stay at El Matador. The resort itself is very charming. The unit, however; was absolutely beautiful! The renovations were well done and the view was amazing. In all my years of vacationing on Okaloosa Island I have never had beach service. AJ, the beach attendant was tremendous. Very friendly, energetic and always willing to go the extra mile to make our experience a great one. I will never not have beach service again. We plan to come back next year!! Amazing time.

Reviewer Comments:

Fantastic stay-cation. Very pleased with the unit, except a few things need to be repaired. Overall very clean, except artificial plants etc. needed a good dusting. The only reason I'm giving it only 3 stars for cleanliness. Towel holders had been repaired in bathroom and drywall dust was left on floor. (Very minor). The grounds are well maintained and the view was amazing. Would definitely recommend!!

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at the most popular property on Okaloosa Island and the El Matador condos. This unit has had a lot of updates, and it is a very comfortable unit to stay and enjoy and the most wonderful views of the balconies, and you are steps to the second pool also. and also to the whirlpool and sauna room and tennis courts. Thanks for letting us know about the drywall on the floor i apologize for that, but, i am glad that we are going to see you again in the future. Don't forget this is one of the best areas for your vacation.
