Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in Okaloosa Island - El Matador 469 - Gulf Front, Corner Penthouse Unit

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 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.

Reviewer Comments:

This unit was beautiful and the view is breath taking. The unit has been nicely updated. Our only issues which is very minor was the living room sliding door was almost impossible to open, we soon discovered that is was off track, once it was put back on track and sprayed with a lubricate it worked great. We highly recommend this unit.

El Matador 469 Rental

Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental.

Reviewer Comments:

The location of our condo at El Matador was perfect! However, we were disappointed with the overall cleanliness (thick dirt on ceiling fan blades in back bedroom, the patio door off the living room was extremely difficult to open. We reported this to security and they were to have maintenance contact us. Maintenance never did contact us. When we asked for sheets for the sleeper sofa we were told initially we could not have them - we made it clear in our discussions with Alicia Hollis we would have at least 5 people and maybe 6 prior to our arrival. I'm not sure why they didn't want to provide the needed set of sheets but eventually did so. There were no dish towels - only cloths when we arrived. Had to ask for those. For over $2,000 a week rental fee the condo should have been spotless and the balcony doors (off living room) operable.
