Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, 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:

This makes the second time I have stayed in the unit. This time there were small **** Roaches in the bathroom and kitchen. The carpet at the door to the balcony was black along the edges which appeared to be mildew. As I stated, we have stayed here many times before but will shop around on our next visit to see what is available. As for recommending the property to a friend; I would have to think about that.

Reviewer Comments:

Gorgeous view from condo balcony overlooking the emerald waters of the Gulf as well as the pool. Grounds are very well maintained especially for an older complex. Security staff were friendly. Kitchen was well equipped with everything you need for an extended stay. Plenty of stg, appreciate the empty cabinets. Condo is nice and spacious especially for a one bedroom. Soda was comfortable but mattress was too soft for our taste. Condo is in desperate need of updating...blue carpet is downright nasty. Would stay here again but only if condo was updated. Washer and dryer were conveniet. We enjoyed our visit. Check out Cool Fish seafood in Niceville.

Owner's Response: thanks so much for your wonderful review and we will talk to the owner about getting some tall patio chairs. I hope you enjoyed the wonderful views of that balcony, and the great sunsets also of course, our friendly dolphins. We will be happy to have you back again.
