Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in Okaloosa Island - El Matador 413 - Great Ground Floor by Beach

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.

This was our second trip to El Matador and the first for Unit 413. We love the property and amenities at El Matador and we LOVED our condo! It has a great open floor plan with everything you need to feel at home. Kitchen was fully stocked so meal preparation was a breeze. Very clean and comfortable. We were planning next year's trip back to Unit 413 on our way home.

Our family has been renting this ground floor unit for years. It is absolutely wonderful. Ypu walk right out of your back door and you are on grass, steps from the pool. The unit is always clean and this year we were surprised with a new couch and lamps. We have 4 small boys and they enjoy everything about El Matador. Definitely recommend this unit!

Reviewer Comments:

We have stayed numerous times at El Matador and have always had a good experience. However, this time Unit 413 the was not as well appointed as others we have stayed in. For example, the beds were not comfortable and the sofa bed was broken. We also rented Unit 417 for my son's family which was way out of date and was not very clean upon arrival. We were told there would be a heated pool which was not true. Or, the pool was not heated to the degree it needed to be for comfort. The dryer on 1st floor was broken and it was not repaired the entire time we were there. We had to hoist washed clothes to the 2nd floor to use the dryer. Of course, the amenities of the entire property were good. We always enjoy the easy access to the beach and the security of the of the grounds. The staff was friendly and the grounds were kept clean. We return to the property a couple of times a year, and we will probably do so again. The restaurants in Ft Walton and Destin are wonderful. We particularly enjoy the Magnolia Grill, Bayou Bill's, and Bochamps. We also make a trip to Sexton Sea Food to purchase fresh catches and grill out. The property is great for that. I would recommend El Matador, but we were disappointed with the two units, and I doubt I would recommend these two units (413 and 417).

Reviewer Comments:

Nice experience overall. Perfect condo for those who do not want to carry luggage a long distance, because I could drive car to within ten feet of door. No view of ocean however. Very adequate condo, but several smaller things could have been improved. No coffee filters available, no Kleenex and no paper towels, so we went out and bought them. Main room furniture dirty. Sign on the end table had instructions for renters to strip beds and take out garbage and wash dishes, more reminiscent requirements of a friends condo I stay in for free rather than one which cost well over $600 for two days, which I thought included a cleaning fee.

Owner's Response: Thanks for choosing this great unit 413 at the El Matador and very convenient to the pool and out to the beach. We provide our condos with complimentary 4 rolls of toilet paper, 6 bars of soap, 2 large garbage bags for the canister out in the kitchen and all your clean linens in the unit. The only thing we ask everyone upon check out is to please put any dirty dishes left from the nite before into the dishwasher and start it, as we also provide you with 2 dish packs to do that. We do not want you to do any laundry as we bring in fresh linens after you check out. Yes, you did have to pay for the cleaning fee,upon your departure, but, you did not have to clean it,as there were instructions on the front of your envelope upon your arrival with your keys for your check out. Nevertheless I hope that you all have enjoyed your stay in 413, a newly remodeled condo and hope to see you all again.

We have been b staying here at el matador for nine years. We live it! The location is great! Its nice, quite, friendly staff. The only complaint i have this visit is the cleaning crew left behind a dirty clothes basket full of towels in our room which began to smell after a few days, we just moved tgem out outside. The room was a little dusty. Overall no big deal woukd definitely stay again!
