Overview

About the property

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've been going to Fort Walton Beach for 18 years and staying at the El Matador. Unit 425 was one of the best beachfront units we've stayed in. We loved the layout, the cleanliness and the tile throughout, but the best part was the gorgeous view every day! The entire property is always immaculate and everyone is so friendly. Chris and Amanda at Alicia Hollis always treat us like royalty! Another wonderful experience! Can't wait to go back next year!

Loved the location. The bed was soooo comfortable. Every thing was updated. Only complaint was the floors were dirty, including the carpets and the upholstery on the chairs needs cleaned. Overall, we will definitely stay in this unit again.
