Okaloosa Island Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 full bathroom sleeps 2-6

Our second floor Condo on Okaloosa Island offers two bedrooms, 2 full baths and will sleep two to six people. We welcome you to use our second home as a vacation spot where you will create memories that will last a lifetime. There is a mesmerizing view of the Gulf from the balcony, where you can dolphin watch while enjoying your morning coffee. This unit is in building 4 which is gulf front. The sun sets directly in front of the kitchen window. If you look north from the front door you can see the Santa Rosa Sound.

Porcelain tile through-out unit, no sandy carpet.

Two bedrooms, one king, two twins, one sofa bed, one twin size convertible chair. We also have a port-a-crib and high chair for the little ones.

Large grassy area for children to play right outside the balcony.

El Matador is popular with the snowbirds, offering weekly activities.

Located next to 13 miles of uninhabited beaches.

Three TVs, VCR and DVD players. Lots of children videos.

Gulfarium: The Gulfarium is a very important attraction on Okaloosa Island. It is one of the oldest aquariums in Florida that still offers much fun to the entire family. Watch the Dolphins and sea lions perform for you. The Gulfarium is right on the corner of 98 and Santa Rosa Blvd. After the show enjoy a walk on the fishing pier.

Shopping : Head east towards Destin. Shopping does not get better than this. Check out the new Destin Village with unique art and gifts as well as water front restaurants. Scores of stores at Destin Commons and again, you won't go hungry there either.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Jackie,

We had a great time. I didn't even mind the rain the one day. My husband

took the older boys to Pensacola and I read a book for three hours while the

baby napped. What a treat that was! The condo had everything we needed

and it was so nice not to have to pack the crib and highchair. Thanks again

for all of your ideas and assistance.

Great unit for a great price

  • 4 of 5
We scheduled a last minute vacation and this GREAT unit was available. The unit had everything our large family needed. A very comfortable king size bed in the master and two twin beds in the second bedroom. The living room had a loveseat and sofa that were both sleepers. The unit comfortably accommodated our family of seven. The furniture is somewhat dated but in no way negatively affected our stay. The view from the balcony is better than advertised; there is a large grassy area adjacent where our 8 year old played baseball and various activities with children from other units. This is a great unit for families with young children and vacationers who desire a more relaxed atmosphere. The complex is also minutes from Destin if you like a more festive environment. The complex and the unit in particular were very clean and well maintained. The unit is very close to a large beachside pool with convenient access to the beach. The beach was never crowded due to the proximity of the complex to the Air Force base. Access to the complex was manned by a security guard 24 hours a day. We will definitely stay in this unit for years to come.

Wonderful location. Desperately needs updating.

  • 2 of 5
Best location on the beach. This unit needs updating. Furniture broken, linens torn, kitchen cabinet doors falling off. Great space, lovely complex. Thoughtful tips from owner about things to do and see in the area.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review my unit. I agree it does need some updating. I am currently working with an interior decorator to take care of the items you mentioned as well as some other updates. It really IS the best location on the beach. Come back and visit and let us know what you think of the changes we made. I am really excited about them.

Grandmother, Daughters and Granddaughters Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Very well pleased with the condo. Really good view of pool and Gulf from balcony. Condo had everything we needed and more. Very roomy and comfortable. Beach access was right there. Sand was so white and the water was really nice. Did rain a few times, but did not dampen our spirits. Pool was wonderfully large. Would definately stay again and also recommend to friends and relatives. We all had a really great time. Thank you.

Would most definitely recommend!

  • 5 of 5
We travel extensively, so nothing is worse than being disappointed in your accomodations. This location will not disappoint you.,

Our visit could not have been more perfect! The condo location is fabulous, just steps away from the pool, with the beach just beyond. The condo itself was exactly as advertised - - clean and comfortable, with everything we needed to just relax and enjoy ourselves. The owners were warm, welcoming and even provided us with all of the information we needed for the surrounding area. The location itself was extremely convenient, just minutes away from all of the restaurants, attractions, etc., but away from all the traffic.

We would most definitely recommend this property to our friends and other family members who plan to visit the area.

We had a wonderful stay at the El Matador and Okaloosa Island! We are a family of 4, with two small children ages 1 and 3. This condo was perfect for the children. Since 6 of our 7 days were rainy, we were so grateful to have the huge selection of children's videos! Aside from swimming in the rain, we also took a trip to the Pensacola Air Force Museum (highly recommended) and the Emerald Coast Science Center (not so recommended!). The beaches were quiet and uncrowded as always, and this condo is situated perfectly near the beach. We didn't have to worry about overpacking for the beach since we were only steps away! Thanks Jackie, for giving our family this opportunity. We look forward to returning in the near future!
