Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in Okaloosa Island - El Matador 140 - Corner Unit!

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:

We were very happy to find a place on short notice and the price was very reasonable. The location of the property was great for us. The beach is gorgeous and the swimming pools are very nice. The grounds are very well maintained. The buildings are freshly painted. The grounds are gated and secure. Our unit #140 was very comfortable. However, although it was clean the fact it was so outdated made it feel dirty. If it were to be updated and the carpeting in the bedrooms replaced it would have a newer and cleaner feel. Also there is a security light right outside the 2nd bedroom window. The blinds/shades in that bedroom are not the type to keep out that bright of a light so our aunt had a very hard time sleeping. Replacing the blinds in both bedrooms or adding room darkening curtains would be a great help. There is a sliver of a view of the gulf but we enjoyed the balcony. All in all it was a great stay and we would stay again and recommend to others.

Reviewer Comments:

Our experience at El Matador is always good. Some maintenance problems were encountered. Unit needs updating badly. I understand the owners invested about $20,000 in new windows and doors. This is a good start.
