Okaloosa Island Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, Sleeps 6

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:

Great location and fairly decent unit. However the bathrooms are from 1974 and need some serious work. Also the master closet looks like an old shower and smells like one. We would not recommend this unit to anyone until those problems are fixed.

The view if fantastic. The location is at the end of Santa Rosa and very quiet. Both the beach and the sidewalk om Santa Rosa provide great walking sites.

The evening sunsets from our balcony can't be beat at any location. We had everything we needed to enjoy our month. The weather was superb with only a few rainy days.

Reviewer Comments:

Excellent view from this unit. One can look out and down the beach. The unit overall is in good condition. The living room furniture seems to have been updated. The kitchen was well equipped. I think the Master bed can be updated though - it was hard but I did sleep ok.

Owner's Response: This condo unit 343 has a wonderful view of the very large balcony, and a very spacious one too. The kitchen is definitely very well equipped with everything for your cooking needs, and a very comfortable condo to enjoy your stay on the beach. The master bedroom has a new mattress, and maybe it was just too firm, but, it is a new one, updated earlier this year with the living room furniture. We hope that we can see you again next time for another vacation to this beautiful area, and at the el matador unit 343.
