About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 5

THIS CONDO HAS A SATURDAY TO SATURDAY REQUIREMENT DURING PEAK SEASON!Free Beach Service with this Rental!!!

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.

The property manager was more than helpful.

Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental.

Reviewer Comments:

The beach is beautiful. We liked the privacy of the location - since there are no condos on the east side of the property it seemed a little less crowded. We enjoyed the extra amenities of the property (pools, tennis, basketball, sauna, fitness center, etc.) The staff were pleasant and helpful. This is not an upscale property if you're looking for something new and posh, but the grounds were nicely kept with extra space for kids to play. Unfortunately, we had a problem with cockroaches in this unit (we saw a total of 10 during our stay - both live and dead) which was very disturbing. Not sure if it's just this unit or if others have same issue. Parts of the facility seemed run down while other aspects seemed new and updated. Other than the bug problem, we would have enjoyed it.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review for this wonderful condo at the El Matador unit 410, and this is just the most popular property on Okaloosa Island for families and their vacation needs. This property has all the amenities that you would need to enjoy and most of all also with 24 hr security. Unit 410 is just steps to the pool and out to the beach, and it has been newly updates for your needs, and convenient location for your parking also. We have notified the HOA for your situation of the roaches, and they had come out to sprayed the whole condo and in the area, and the whole building. We hope that we get to see you again down the road, and most of all we would love to have you hear next May, to enjoy our wonderful sand and gulf.

Reviewer Comments:

I really like to stay at the El Matador in Ft Walton because of the beach. There are no condos to the right of the complex ,thus, the beach is not as crowded as many other places. I particularly like the ground floor units in Building 4. While our unit has been updated, it could really use a decor update! Bedding,rugs, pillows etc. Please loose the peach walls and navy sofa. Dated!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review, but, just wanted to let you know that this condo has been updated, and the blue couch is brand new, the owners just bought it, we are very sorry about the walls, but, those are the colors that the owners love, and we really cannot change it. I am glad that you enjoyed our beautiful beach and i hope you had a chance to see the sunrise and sunsets out by the gazebo.

We have, for several years, stayed at El Matador, during Easter break. We have always thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The area is beautiful and the accommodations are outstanding. Unit 410 is a favorite of ours!

Owner's Response: El Matador unit 410 is a corner unit, with a very large balcony to go out and sit and relax. Inside, the condo has been remodeled and very entertaining and enjoyable for your stay. The pool is just steps away from the condo and then out to the beach. Most of all you will enjoy the complimentary 2 chairs and umbrella on the beach.
