Gulf Front One BR 1 bed/ 1 bth Gulf Front Condo. No Smoking No Pets

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.

Property Reviews 
Our wonderful relaxing end of summer time at El Matador!
Billy S. from Jones, OK recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in September, 2014
We very much enjoyed our stay at El Matador. I had been bringing my children there since they were babies and they are now young adults so I was exited to see it again. It is still as great as always and the pool was clean and well kept as well as the grounds. Thank you so much. We will be back next year!

Great Stay
A guest from Henderson, TN recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in August, 2014
We enjoyed our stay at El Matador. Really nice location, relatively quiet and beautiful beach. Unit was nice - a little outdated (not bad) and the only thing we found missing was a bottle opener (picked one up in town).

El Matador 445 - FT Walton Beach
Phillip W. from Acworth, Georgia recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in July, 2014
Unit is nice and roomy, clean but dated. Kitchen and bathroom are old. Furniture is so so. The unit had a musty smell when we first went in, but that seemed to go away after a few hours of running the AC. Needs a ceiling fan in the bedroom. The complex is pretty good and it is great that it is at the end of the row of condos - so you can see all the way to Pensacola! Great to walk on the secluded beach to the west. It would help to know that there are trash chutes down at the end of each hallway. 10 am is too early for checkout - 11 am would be more positive. We would visit this complex again, but would probably selected one of the updated units in building 3 since the morning sun does not hit the balcony so much. We would rent this unit again if it were updated in the future.

The heated pool was a great asset. The weather was perfect when we were there, but cold prior to that week. The main pool was freezing.

Stayed for 7 days in April, 2014
NO, Unit had a bad water leak from A/C so we left a day early. A/C guy just looked at it. We asked for a refund since we paid for a week but agent said "she didn't have the authority. will get back to us". Still no response.

Eberle from Indiana
Robert E. from Brook, IN recommends this property.
Stayed for 27 days in September, 2013
Was mostly satified with the condo. We have booked El Matador 445 for the next 2 years for 2 seperate 6 week stays in 2014 and 2015. We would like to see a long mirror installed in the bedroom hall for dressing and a couple of tall patio chairs on the Balcony so the view can be more enjoyable rather than looking thur handrails.

Response from Alicia J. Hollis, Realtor
Dear Mr. Eberle, Just wanted to let you know that i notified the owner about the things you wanted and we will take care of those things by the time you come in next year. I am so happy that you will be returning back with us, and that you enjoyed your stay, and will enjoy again in 2014

We enjoyed our stay at El Matador 445 and have booked this unit for our stay for the next 2 years. We would like to see a long dressing mirror and tall balcony chairs so the view would be even more enjoyable.

El Matador Unit 445
Lewis B. from Hot Springs, AR does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2013
The unit is in our favorite building, on our favorite floor. The view is great. the construction and layout of the condo is perfect for a one bedroom renter. that is all that is good with this unit.The ceiling needs painting. The front door locks malfunction and we used our own WD 40 to even get the sliding balcony door open and it took me, a fairly strong man, all my strength to open the door. The screen door will not open. The blender was replaced by A Hollis. The furniture was old. The bedspread was malodorous and stained and was folded and put away to keep the room from smelling.Let us hear about and see for ourselves repairs and upgrades on this unit and we MIGHT rent it again next summer. We love El Matador. We love Alicia Hollis and E. M. rentals. We don't love #445. God Bless you and yours.Nelson BallardHot Springs, Arkansas

Mark S. from Salem, NH recommends this property.
Stayed for 29 days in May, 2012
The unit location was premium. The unit contents were a little outdated and worn. The location was on the water and quiet. This is the last resort on the road with little traffic on this end.
