Deb M. from Beaver Creek, OH recommends this property.

Beautiful unit; very clean. Loved that it was on the ground floor.... wish this unit was keyless entry, but otherwise the unit was perfect! Would definitely rent again.

Nice, but Probably Wouldn't Stay Here Again
A guest from Evansville, IN does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in May, 2017
I actually thought this condo was better in person than in pictures. The pictures don't really highlight the space offered in this 1 bedroom condo. The pros of this unit were definitely the ground floor location (we have a toddler), the finishes, decor, everything included in the kitchen, and so on. We did find the mattress on the pull-out sofa to be VERY uncomfortable. My daughter only slept on it once and simply couldn't do it another night. Also, when we took the cushions off to pull out the mattress, there was a large amount of crumbled food (think chips, cheez its, so on) on top of it. We suspect that this played a role in what turned out to be by far the biggest disappointment of the trip: Roaches. We stayed Saturday to Saturday (actually left Friday night), and the only day I did not wake up to find at least one roach belly-up on the kitchen floor was Friday. It was really disappointing to have this problem. For that reason alone, I would not stay in this unit again.The team at Alicia J. Hollis was really nice to work with. They made themselves available prior to and after office hours. Very seemless check in and check out working with this group. However, I did inform them about the roach issue mentioned above and did not receive any kind of respnse, which was slightly disappointing (I'm not sure what could've been done, but any kind of response would've been nice). The location of the El Matador was great. It's at the end of the strip and is fantastic for fishing and catching crabs at night. The weather wasn't great for our trip, so we only got to fish a few times, but again, if you're into surf fishing, the location here is prime. The facility itself is a little dated, so if you're wanting to stay in a newer place, with a little more modern ammenities, this may not be the place for you (speaking to the El Matador as a whole. 215 is appropriately updated).

Beautiful remodeled ground floor unit, very comfortable and enjoyable for your stay and close to the great pool and spa and tennis courts. Lots of grounds in front of the unit for you to walk and kids to play, and then just steps to the big pool.
You must stay in this unit, it is a wonderful experience.

215 El Matador review
Sam S. from Wyoming, MI recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in March, 2017
We were very happy with our experience. It totally met our expectations. There was a problem with the sink drain and someone was sent over the same day. Thanks for the great service. If we would rent this unit in February 2018 for a month, what would be the rental cost? Thanks!!!!!!

Beautiful condo!
Stephanie D. from Leroy, IL recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in May, 2016
El Matador 215 is a beautifully kept, clean unit on the first floor. We've stayed in this unit many times after staying in different units over the 17 years we've been visiting Okaloosa Island. We will stay here each time it's available in the future, no question!! Alicia Hollis (Chris and Amanda) are wonderful to work with and we consider them friends after all the years we've worked with them! They are friendly, courteous and always willing to cater to our needs! Another great vacation from these annual beach goers!

Excellent location - Excellent unit!
Wayne B. from Magnolia, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 14 days in June, 2015
The rental experience was seamless, no issues at all - the realtor was experienced and professional. The rental unit itself was better than expected - i would propose that more photos are taken of the inside of the rental to give potential renters a better visual of the finishings and amenities, current photos dont do the place any justice. The kitchen is completely kitted out, top to bottom and didnt want for anything, everything that we needed was there. Flat screen TV`s in both the lounge and master bedroom including sattelite TV, something we didn't know. The rental unit also has its own dedicated internet which was excellent. Only issue i had during my entire stay was that the AC repairman simply walked into the unit while we were in it, wife was in the bathroom and kids in the lounge, dad was fishing. I find it completely unacceptable that people are allowed to come into the units unscheduled. My wife complained about this and got the "oh, its maintenance" - i don't care if its maintenance, not allowing you to put my family at risk while you cant organize your maintenance properly. No apology from the realtor either. The mattress on the pull out couch for the kids needs to be replaced, it digs into a 6yr olds back - we had to pad it with blankets to make it ok for her to sleep on. Other than those issues its a great unit, really nice and walking distance to the beach.

Response from Alicia J. Hollis, Realtor
Glad t o see that condo got the great review it deserves. This is one of a kind one bedroom. As to the maintenance crew entering condo
to do monthly inspection, I complained to HOA about entering condo and it was then that I was told tenant's son in condo let the crew come in. Maintenance did not "just barge in". The owner has been notified about condition of sofa bed and am sure this problem will be rectified very quickly. If you need apology from me for your son letting maintenance in, you have it.

Wonderful Week!
Robert M. from Englewood, FL recommends this property.

Our stay at El Matador 215 was very enjoyable. The condo was just as it looks in the picture and well appointed. The kitchen was fully stocked. The bed very comfortable and at garden level. We enjoyed having our cocktail on the patio area. The beaches at Fort Walton are some of the best in the country. Enjoyed dinner at the Bay Cafe very much! All in all a beautiful vacation.

Florida Winter Trip - 2014
Monty & Robert C. from LaFarge, WI recommends this property.
Stayed for 28 days in February, 2014
This was our first stay in the Fort Walton Beach area. This beautiful area really welcomes Snowbirds with many activities and events. This condo was nicely updated and clearly the most well-equipped condo we've rented. The facility is well kept, and a beautiful setting on the beach. I wish for in-unit washer & dryer, or some improved functionality in the laundry rooms, i.e. a folding table would be appreciated. Also, we'd have liked a key to the spa for a long-term renter, even if it required a deposit. The property manager is the best we've dealt with. Everything was as stated. They were very responsive when called. We had no real issues, only questions and clarifications. While the weather wasn't all we'd hoped for, the beauty and welcome of the community are superior to previous experiences. We will return, and we'll definitely use Alicia Hollis as our property manager.

Winter, 2014 in Fort Walton Beach
Monty & Robert C. from LaFarge, WI recommends this property.
Stayed for 28 days in January, 2014
We enjoyed the property. it is well-kept and the location is great! Our unit was updated and certainly the most fully equipped condo we've rented. The improvements I feel could be made are: Cleaning/laundering of rugs, comforters, and pillow covers for each new tenant; key access to the sauna/spa for long-term rentals - going to the gate was very inconvenient, especially in cold weather. Washer/dryer in unit would be wonderful. We especially appreciate the honesty and reliability of the property manager. Having had some bad experiences, we were tentative, and very pleasantly surprised.
