Overview

About the property

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 have been renting condos at El Matador for 20 years. I was very disappointed in the condition of our condo this year. We pay a premium price to be in building four with a corner view #459. My family also had unit #469. Their condo was very nice and clean. When we arrived our unit was dirty. I called Chris and she sent the cleaning guys over. The only thing I had them do was clean the mustard off the panty door and wipe the spills off the kitchen floor. Even though there were other issues My family was ready to settle in for our vacation and they convinced me to let it go. Not only is the furniture old but the carpet is also old and was stained and dirty. You could see dirt and crumbs under the sofa. the kitchen cookware was old. the flatware was old and mismatched. The bathrooms were not clean and the toilet paper and shower caddies were very rusted. I feel like my vacation experience was not as good because of the condition of our condo. I would not rent this unit again. I have been told that going through El Matador is better than through a realtor. We will try something different next time.

This unit is in a perfect location on the 5th floor. The views are super,nothing but beach and water in 3 directions. The unit was fresh and the furnishings are in good shape however the tv in the master bedroom had some issues. I would(will) stay there again.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your review about this condo, and the issue with the TV was taken cared off, and it is working fine. It was very minor due to the connection in the back of it. I am so glad that you enjoyed the wonderful views of the balcony, and we would love to see you again next year.

Reviewer Comments:

Our family found this unit to be very comfortable and the location for beach view could not have been better! The kitchen has been updated but there was a trick to getting the dishwasher to start. Also the light switch in the hall needs checking. We were able to watch the Wednesday night fireworks from our balcony which was lovely. This was our second trip to El Matador and we will definitely come again.

Owner's Response: We appreciate your reviews for this wonderful condo at the El Matador unit 459. This unit does have an awesome view from all sides, and especially with that lovely large balcony. The kitchen has been updated for everyone's comfort and we hope that you enjoyed cooking there, and still looking at the gulf from the kitchen window. We hope to see you again next year to this unit again.

Very nice time! This has been our 10th year to El Matador and 3rd or 4th to unit 459. I would like to suggest the following regarding this unit. Sofa sleeper not comfortable, perhaps a new mattress. Sliding door very heavy to open/close. Outside furniture is old, could use an update. Ceiling fans would be a welcome addition to the bedrooms.
