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 
better than Hawaii..........perfect except one thing
lynn c. from rathdrum, ID recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in October, 2014
I would definitely come back again to exactly the same spot and same condo if the owner did just one thing: buy a new bed. The bed is a very old innerspring mattress and the bedding is thread bare.

Response from Alicia J. Hollis, Realtor
Just wanted to let you know that I notified the owner about the bed, and they said that they will be replacing it, and thanks for letting us know. Chris.

P Family Vacation 2014
John P. from Baton Rouge, Louisiana (LA) recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in July, 2014
The rental was extremely nice and very convienetly located to the pool and beach. The only problem was the floors did not seem very clean when we arrived. There were spots on the kitchen floor. Also, the bedroom did not seem to cool down with the A/C at night.

The unit definitely needs renovated, the decor is circa 1976 I think, but it was very clean, very comfortable and location can be beat! We'll definitely be back!

Stayed for 7 days in July, 2013
We have stayed in this unit in previous years, this year after paying extra $50.00 cleaning the floor was still sandy, should have been swept before mopping.Air was fixed very fast, after my call. ThanksSteve you may need to hire Quality control to check unit after cleaning says unit ready.

Perfect Location

This property is very spacious and has a direct view to the ocean. The bed and pillows are very soft and comfy. The pull out couch was great for my two small boys. We very much enjoyed our stay!

Response from Alicia J. Hollis, Realtor
Good Morning RObin, I was reading your review and i am happy that you enjoyed this unit 314 at the el matador and it was comfortable for you and your family. I know it is very convenient right there in front of the pool and also by the gazebo that takes you out to the beach. I am glad that you enjoyed everything and we will see you again next year. Thanks Chris.

Great location, needs bigger hot water heater
A guest from Southaven, MS does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in September, 2012
Loved the location, great to be that close to the beach and pool. The condo could use some updating with the electrical outlets. Many were very old and the plugs wouldn't stay in the outlets. There wasn't near enough hot water available. There wasn't even enough hot water for a ten minute shower.
