Fort Walton Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom 2 full baths lots of space

El Matador, located on Okaloosa Island is approximately 3 miles from 'DESTIN'. Emerald green waters and sugary sand white beaches are steps away from the condo door. The condo is a short walk to the 1/4 mile long Okaloosa Island Fishing Pier, famous for it's large fish. Don't fish? No problem. Spectators are always welcome to come out and watch the dolphins in their natural environment and to watch the sun drop into the Gulf of Mexico. Wonderful seafood dining, entertainment from the Gulfarium and plenty of shopping are within walking distance as well.

This newly renovated two bedroom, two bath spacious gulf side condo comfortably sleeps 8. The Master bedroom has a king bed with 50' HDTV and private bath. The second bedroom has two large full size beds with a large 32' HDTV and also has a full bath. The large living area has a couch that converts to a very comfortable queen size bed and features another 50' HDTV. Each room also has a dvd player with a large selection of movies for everyone. The patio features a top of the line new gas grill. Grill out while watching or playing some tennis or basketball just feet away or while relaxing and watching the beautiful sunset.

El Matador is a popular beachfront resort. It features two pools (one heated and located feet from the front door) (the other is located right on the beach). Two lighted tennis courts, a sauna, whirlpool, basketball court, beach volleyball, game room, and an exercise room, plus weekly activities for our winter guests. All of this within a gated, gulf-front resort community.

Keywords: Ground floor condo, 2 pools, tennis, basketball, private, quiet, relaxing

My name is Beth. I'm a tennis pro from Nashville Tn. Along with tennis, I love the sun and the beach. I purchased this condo about 2 years ago. I have really enjoyed making it a place that I love and I feel like others will enjoy it as well!

Karen Glaus purchased this condo in 2010

I've always wanted to own a property right on the beach and love this area. After looking for years, I feel like I found the ideal beautiful spot for vacationing and I hope to share it with others that will love it too.

Destin is a wonderful fun vacation area that I love, although I'm not a huge fan of the crowds. With this condo, I am close enough to enjoy the benefits of Destin, such as the great restaurants, the outlet mall shopping, and the water park. After enjoying a touch of all that, I have the benefit of what feels like my own private beach. We have 2 wonderful pools, lighted tennis courts. I have spent several times at the beach watching the dolphins play.

Lovely Condo, perfect location.

This was our first trip as a family to a true destination vacation. We are a family of 6 with four children ranging in age from 11 to 3. The condo was roomy enough for our large family. My youngest still talks about his flower bed (in the second bedroom) all of the children enjoyed sleeping in the livingroom.

The condo is in a perfect location for a family, out the back sliding door is a green grassy area perfect for the kiddos to run around and play. Also right out the back are the basketball and tennis courts. Directly out the front door is one of two swimming pools in the complex. This made for easy moonlight dips in the pool and a quick trip to the pool before heading to the beach.

The beach is on the other side of the complex so it is a short walk, but the beach itself is well worth the walk. We were there over a holiday weekend and the beach was not overcrowded. We learned a tip from a local, we would take our beach blanket and a few other things down to the beach at 7am, set up our spot then go down whenever we were ready. Our things were perfectly safe no one touched anything.

As I mentioned we are a large family, so we opted to cook most of our meals. There is a Publix supermarket right over the bridge, not even a 5 min drive, so grocery shopping was very easy. The gas grill was one of the selling points for us, we knew that during summer we'd prefer to grill than cook in the house. Again eating in was our choice, there were many options to eat out.

I can go on and on about what a great time our family had. My youngest hit it spot on when he called this our 'new home' we will be back!

Last but not least Karen was a joy to do business with, she is a lovely lady who promptly answered all of our questions.

The unit was tastefully decorated and comfortable. It was a little further away from the ocean than we prefer but a pleasant walk. It had everything we needed plus extras. We enjoyed the short trek to Destin and the attractions there. We had a great time and made lasting memories. We would encourage others to rent this if they don't mind a little walking.

Ideal Family Get-away!

Our family has stayed at this condo multiple times and we plan on going back again next year! It is a perfect family friendly location with a beautiful beach just a short walk across the property. When we weren't soaking up the rays at the gorgeous beach, the whole family enjoyed the basketball court, tennis courts (rackets provided), and lots of grass to run and play right out the back patio (fenced in from the road). Also, the whole family loved the heated pool just steps from the front door. In our down time, we enjoyed the HUGE screen televisions in each bedroom and the living room. There were family friendly board games and DVD's available. With the military base being right next to El Matador, the beach is free of any structures and residents to the west. It really is a very unique location. It is perfect for quiet walks, jogging or hunting for shells. Destin is just a few miles down the road with outlet malls, great restaurants, putt putt and other activities. I really have nothing negative to say about this vacation rental! I have and will recommend it to anyone!
