Overview

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.

Reviewer Comments:

We love the ground floor and having the beach and pool basically in your backyard. You can just go right out and not a big production to pack up things to the beach. However, the air quality was really terrible, especially on humid days. The AC does not remove humidity. There was so much condensation it was not only on the air returns, but on the walls, mirrors, and floor. We purchased a dehumidifier and that got us through the week!

Reviewer Comments:

Overall I would highly recommend this condo and rental company. Although the unit is a somewhat outdated, the location and cleanliness where top notch. On the first day, we were having some trouble with the refrigerator cooling down, we called the company that night and they were quick to get back with us. Beds were very comfortable as was the rest of the furniture. Loved the convenience of being on the first floor.

Owner's Response: El Matador unit 417 is right on the beach and by the pool and you have a wonderful view and steps out to the gazebo. You can walk out there and sit and watch the sunrise and sunsets and all the dolphins. Beautiful unit and wonderful location. Also close to the barbecue for your convenience.
