About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

THIS CONDO HAS A SATURDAY TO SATURDAY REQUIREMENT DURING PEAK SEASON!

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.

We enjoy staying at the El Matador in unit 469 each year. It's become a second home to us and would highly recommend. Unit 469 is nicely decorated, well stocked kitchen and unbeatable views.

Reviewer Comments:

Unit was nicely appointed and the beds were very comfortable. I was disappointed that there was no blender and I felt that the dish ware and cooking utensils weren't on a par with the rest of the unit. Guest shower was the largest of any unit we've stayed in here.

Reviewer Comments:

I haveused this condo 3 of the last 5 years for "Spring Break". It is a great location and the view is wonderful. Large living room area and open kitchen area. Great for having people visit. I would use it again without hesitation. One recliner was missing its arm cover. One stool for the counter was also missing. The sliding screen door for the balcony (from the living room) was tough to slide -- but I think this occurs in most units due to the atmospheric conditions.

Owner's Response: This beautiful modern spacious condo is located right on the beach of the Gulf of Mexico! The condo has a totally equipped kitchen, with a very large living room and Panoramic views. A GORGEOUS FULL FRONTAL VIEW OF THE GULF OF MEXICO! (from the Balcony, living room and bedroom!) It is a 6th floor Penthouse - elevator of course. The huge pool face the water and so does the gazebo, were you can go there and enjoy your drink and watch the sunsets.

We have been vacationing at Okaloosa Island for over 10 years. We always stay at the ElMatador. We love the quiet walks along the beach. We enjoy the the condo is at the end on the strip it makes it seem private. Wouldn't stay anywhere else. See you next year!

Reviewer Comments:

This unit had an excellent view and the room was very nice and clean. The door to the balcony was very hard to open and only half of the balcony was usable due to a water puddle that was on the other half the entire week we were there.
