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.

Great time had by all!
Gary K. from De Soto, Missouri recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in October, 2014
Alicia and her staff were very warm and fun to work with. Chris was very helpful in arranging a florist for me to call so flowers for my bride of 40 years would have a nice surprise on arrival. We will be back and strongly recommend this facility and Alicia J. Hollis

Great view and relaxing time
Reviewed by: Christopher F. recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in August, 2014
This was our first experience renting a condo on our own and this unit did not disappoint in fitting our wants and needs. The layout was great and the view of the gulf is just what we wanted. It is very well kept and though the unit is the last on the road, it's not very far from anything. We will definitely be coming back again.

Great family vacation - right on the ocean!
Cindy R. from Royal Oak, MI recommends this property.
Stayed for 8 days in April, 2014
We really enjoyed our stay at El Matador Condos at Fort Walton Beach. The location is the last complex next to the Airforce base so you have a wide open view of white sand and the ocean. Our unit was a corner unit so we had views of the ocean from all windows. Our condo was very comfortable and clean. We have already booked another vacation at this location!

A Hollis 330 el matador--stay away!!!
A guest from Germantown, TN does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 5 days in August, 2013
Our condo was so dirty upon our arrival that our dtr preferred to use the public toilets at the pool. Ours had not even been swished and swiped clean. The soap dishes were filthy and the dishes had been put away dirty. The utensil holder in drawer was full of crumbs and even dried up cheese pieces. Condo was seriously out of date with dirty carpet and furniture. Chair in corner propped up on broken leg, we were later accused of this. We had reported the bulk of the disrepair (hard to report it all!) and sent pics to A Hollis realtor and also asked for ex room code, they never responded so we didn't report chair as didn't notice it til days later; figured they didn't care. There was a giant roach bug crawling on our headboard, someone else's dirty panties under the bed, hairy and sandy sheets on beds, vanities with visible dirt (removed easily when we cleaned them!) and someone's crab claw from dinner left in guest bedroom. Not sure why we paid $85 cleaning fee. Definitely not cleaned!!As for beach, ok but lots of rude of rednecks. We had 3 pairs of new flip flops stolen on different days & never returned. Bad seaweed during our stay, meanwhile Destin and Pensacola were both clear.Somewhat of a family atmosphere as no high rises but multiple gentleman's clubs & liquor stores on path made it trashy. Complex gated but wall surrounding complex is only knee high! I have never left a negative review, but this place & this realtor were both horrible!!! Definitely would not recommend either!!!

A Condo with a View!!!
Lois A. J. from West Terre Haute, IN recommends this property.
Stayed for 30 days in February, 2013
I loved spending the winter living in EM 330 and there are only a few things that could improve my satisfaction when I return next winter. First, I found the kitchen drawers and shelves crowded with duplications and too much stuff. A good decluttering is needed. I also would enjoy having wireless internet service as a major convenience for me, as well as any guests I entertain while living there. A lounge chair and two extra bistro chairs would add to the balcony experience. An extra set of sheets for the beds would be appreciated and would avoid me having to strip/wash/remake beds all at the same time. The view is fantastic, a never ending joy for me......the condo is comfortable and the decore relaxing, with lots of original art lending to the overal uniqueness of the property. I am drawn to El Matador because of its nearness to the open beach to the west. The Emerald Coast with its sugar white sands, magnificent sunrises and sunsets and everchanging gulf waters is a powerful magnet pulling me back each winter to soak up its beauty.

Stayed for 32 days in December, 2012
I will spend the winter (Dec. 31, 2012-Mar. 30, 2013)in this condo. I love my view of the coastline and ever-changing sky. The condo itself is super-comfortable, full of light and decorated with just the right combination of original art and soft calming colors. I find the Karma here to suit me perfectly.

330 Survey
Andrea or Boyd L. from Harriman, TN recommends this property.
Stayed for 30 days in September, 2012
A little disappointed with the room, we had ants & had to call 2 times to get rid of them, we also had mold in the room-hope that was not what was causing our coughs. The kitchen was not clean, stuff in the fridge and in the drawers that I had to clean. The porch could use a cleaning. Stayed in this unit numerous times, wish it was updated. New tvs were nice and new carpet was nice-tile would be better. Staying in another unit next yr. May come back ot 330 if things change. Great location and enjoy working with Hollis realty. Had a great time.

El Matador 330 Needs Updating!
A guest from Perryville, MO does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2012
El Matador 330 Needs some serious furniture updates and renovations -especially for the price! The chairs in the Living room were thread-bare and dirty and some of the other wood furniture looked 20 years old. The kitchen and baths were very oldy/moldy. The view and the beach were outstanding. The other problem with El Matador is no on-site managment to talk to about problems etc.. Its just not convienent to have to rely on calling someone from Alicia Hollis if you have problems or questions about the room.

Stayed for 7 days in June, 2012
We have been to the El Matador several times in the past 10 years and this was our best experience. From the decor of the condo to the inclusion of beach chairs, we had no complaints. We hope to be back soon.
