Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in Okaloosa Island - El Matador 450 - A Vacation Favorite, Two Bedroom 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:

Wonderful place to stay. Quiet with great view. Would stay there again. Would prefer key code entry so keys don't have to be picked up and dropped off. Screen doors were both off track so hard to enjoy open doors.

Reviewer Comments:

I work with the Air Force so I usually stay at Fort Walton for 4-6 weeks every summer in the past three years. Every time I stayed at El Matador but in different condos. So far this one is absolutely the best for the price. It's located at the very end of the 5th floor so almost no traffic at all; quiet and private. The balcony opens to the ocean which is only 200 yards away. Can't beat the location. You can even watch the July 4th fireworks show right from the balcony. My only suggestion is that, as also pointed out by other guests, the living room could use a new TV. I believe the current one is probably from 1990s. Other than that, this condo is great. Will definitely come back next summer.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed the condo, and we hope to see you again next year, and if this condo is available we can get you to go in there again. I will notify the owner today to pick up a new tv for that living room, and we never knew that there was an issue with it. But, thanks for letting us know, and looking forward to seeing you once again in 2017

Owner's Response: John, am so happy that you had the opportunity to enjoy unit 450 at the El Matador, and we are so happy to be able to accommodate you every year. This is a wonderful unit in building 4, and yes, very comfortable, and a very large corner unit with a great open kitchen. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay in that condo, and looking forward in seeing you again next winter.

Reviewer Comments:

The El Matador complex is a beautiful place. The location is wonderful. Beaches are beautiful. The best thing is it's right next to miles of uninhabited shoreline. Gorgeous. The condo was OK. The appliances need updating as well as the TV in the living room. It was clean. The master bed has a very firm mattress. I thought the condo would be a little nicer considering the amount of money that we paid, but those things can be fixed. Overall it was great. The location is so nice it makes up for everything that was sub-par. We would stay here again.
