Okaloosa Island Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 4

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 paid $40 to get out of a deplorable unit on the first floor, and it was worth every penny ... even it it should have been free. We'll be staying in 223 the next time we are at El Matador for sure.

We left Ky on a cold , snowy day. We arrived in Ft Walton at 4:30pm and picked up our keys. The condo was spacious ! It had all the amenities of home and very clean! We had an ocean view and only steps away from the beach! The beach was Snow White , clean with very, very few visitors, that made you feel as the beach was yours ! The weather was perfect, high 60's the first day and low 70's every day after that. We drove to the Air Force museum and on to Niceville to meet up with my cousins at the Dockside Bay restaurant. The next day a visit to Panama City Beach to visit friends there. We thought Ft. Walton , Destin area was soo much nicer ! We shopped at the Destin outlet mall. We came back and ate at Dewey Destins , a great seafood restaurant . We walked every morning on the beach and collected a few shells. We even got a game of putt putt in . Overall, a great location,a spacious ,clean,wonderful condo , tastiest seafood around,plentiful shopping beautiful sunsets and the best beaches in the world!!
