Description

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday condo in Okaloosa Island - El Matador 444 - Bright and Fun, One Bedroom on the Beach

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:

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.

Reviewer Comments:

Great place to stay. I would just make a few modifications to the appliance of the unit. They need to remove the blinds from the sliding glass doors and bedroom and replace with a curtain. That is really the only down side to the decor.

Owner's Response: Kesha, thanks so much for your suggestion, i sure will let the owner know about this, so that we can remove them and put some curtains in there. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay there, and hope that we see you back again, and the Emerald Coast.

Reviewer Comments:

This was a very spacious and open one bedroom condo. While it may may not be up to date with new appliances or granite counter tops it was relaxing and fun. Loved the water colors, they were light hearted. Bed was comfortable and the unit was clean. The only thing that was very annoying was that there was someone working out of a bucket truck outside our window most of our stay and alarm was deafening. I don't know when the best time would be do to this type of work, maybe the winter.
