Overview

Okaloosa Island Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Our escape haven has an incredible balcony view of the ocean with its sugar white beach and emerald blue water. The condo is a few steps away from the beach. This end unit has more windows for additional light and multiple views. A real plus of end unit condominiums is that they are about 1' wider than interior units, so you get a little more room. And it has beautiful ocean views out 3 windows, from the patio and even from the kitchen. Also, you can see the gorgeous sunsets from all the side windows.

One unique asset is that to the right, outside the front door, is 13 miles of undeveloped beach. Our condo is in Building #2 of the EL Matador Condominium, which is an established secluded community on Okaloosa Island with a private beachside pool, a heated pool at the club house, tennis and basketball courts as well as an exercise room. El Matador is a gated community with 24 hour security. The area is very family friendly. People love the expansive beach for long walks, sunbathing and plenty of swimming. Plus, unlike most condominium locations, there is a good expanse of grassy lawns between the buildings which provides plenty of area for games or simply sitting outside and enjoying the sight and sounds of the ocean.

This unit has just been redecorated and most of the furniture and appliances are new. In addition, a brand new HVAC unit was installed in April, 2012.

This unit is located on the west end of Building 2 on the second floor. You can park right outside the exterior stair well and its just a quick climb up 1 flight of stairs to arrive at the entrance. But there are also elevators available for those times when transporting heavy luggage or other heavy/cumbersome items.

This unit is just a short walk away from the large pool and the white sands and emerald colored water that are so prevalent in this area. And the beach in this area is special because it abutts govenment owned property that is not closed to the public, so the beach just goes on and on and on.

The living room area is furnished with a sofa and 2 easy chairs. The sofa converts into a queen size sleeper . There is a 40' flat screen TV and a blu-ray DVD player. WiFi is available as well as broadband wired access.

The dining area has a large table and 6 chairs.

The kitchen is equipped with most appliances and utensils you will need to prepare meals.

The master bedroom is furnished with a king size bed, night stands, dresser, and a 32' flat screen TV and a DVD player.

The second bedroom is furnished with twin beds separated by a night stand, a chest of drawers and it also has a 32' flat screen TV.

Renters must be at least 28 years old.

Unfortunately, we cannot allow pets nor can there be any smoking in, or around, the unit since the smoke odor tends to get embedded in fabrics and cloth.

Keywords: Ocean View, sleeps 6, beach access, swimming pools, Destin, recent renovations, end unit, 2 bedrooms. Tennis courts, gym, white sands, Wi Fi. El Matador located on a pristine gulf beach, only 6 minutes from Destin, FL, and minutes from shops, restaurants, water recreation and more.

About Michael Miller

We are an adult couple approaching retirement and purchased this unit to help supplement our retirement income AND provide us a place to escape to for fun and relaxation.

Michael Miller purchased this condo in 2012

Why Michael Miller chose Okaloosa Island

The Ft. Walton Beach/Destin area has some of the prettiest white sand beaches and beautiful emerald colored ocean water you will ever see,and Destin is just a short ride away.

What makes this condo unique

The El Matador Condominiums offer many amenities that newer, or less established facilities, either don't, or can't, provide. Among the list are: gated entrance, security personnel, security surveillance and cameras, fitness center, separate men's and women's whirlpools and saunas, meeting rooms, two swimming pools, tennis courts, basketball backboard, FAX services, soin operated laundry facilities on each floor of each building, soft drink vending machines, and mail drops in each building

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks Michael, the wedding went great as did the weather on Friday. The woman who came to clean did a great job and was done by 6:00 pm. Thanks again and I will keep your info for future reference. Everyone in our party like the lay out in your unit, better than the units they were in.

Spring Break 2015

  • 5 of 5

What a great stay! We have come to El Matador for years. I liked this condo location because it was between the beach and the heated pool, the two places we spent almost all of our time because the weather was perfect all week. I loved the layout of the condo, it was the only one I've seen that is totally open floor plan, most kitchens are L shaped. We stayed here with our 4 young kids and had ample space.

The owner is very nice and very good at communication. I'd stay here again for sure.

Great condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was more than we expected! I love that it was the end unit, it make a huge difference. The views are so much better than I expected. The extra windows make all the difference. The condo is much more open than most we have stayed in, making it feel bigger. We would love to stay here again!

Awesome stay!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was great for our family. It was spacious and comfortable, with great views of the beach. Being an end unit really made a difference in privacy and added natural light from all the extra windows. Another great feature was it had a keyless entry, which is great when you have kids. The owner made the rental process easy. We are hoping to make it back to this wonderful condo later this summer.

Wonderful condo!

  • 5 of 5

The unit is very well-kept, clean and spacious. We were a family a four and had lots of space for relaxing. The unit is very clean. The owner was great to deal with and helped make our stay very enjoyable. The unit has lots of windows and is very quiet. Its location at the end of the building is ideal.

The whole complex is really very nice. It had lots of families and was generally pretty quiet. I would highly recommend this location for families of all ages. We traveled with an 11 year old and a 19 year old. They both enjoyed the condo as well as the complex.

My family and I stayed at this unit this year for 7 days. We loved this unit! the view and the short walk to the beach was perfect. the pics are just what u get. The beach there is wonderful lots of room to find a perfect spot to enjoy the day. We have stayed at other units but this was the best one yet. The owner was really nice to talk with. We will be going back to this unit if possible. I highly recommend this place and unit.

We had the most wonderful vacation. The condo is beautiful, comfortable, spacious, and has all the comforts from home. We cooked meals in the condo, enjoyed dinner out, and most of all enjoyed coffee on the patio while watching/listening to the ocean. The ocean views are amazing and the short walk to beach makes for easy access. We will certainly be back.
