Guest Rating:

909 Santa Rosa Blvd Fort Walton Beach, FL 32548 United States

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.

    Tim F from New Baden, IL recommends this vacation rental

    There's really 1 word to describe our stay in Unit 410. EXCELLENT. From the interior amenities to the outside porch beach access as well as parking access. This unit is one of the nicest, up to date units around.

    The only downside we found was the master bedroom mattress could use an update, but that wouldn't keep us from choosing this unit in the future.

    EXCELLENT!

    • Manager Responded on 11/25/2017

      Thanks for letting us know about the mattress, we will address this to the owner, and she is always the very first to make sure everything is perfect for everyone's satisfaction and enjoyable vacation. We hope to see you again next year to this beautiful condo.

    a guest from Tuscaloosa, AL recommends this vacation rental

    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!

    • Manager Responded on 6/6/2017

      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.

    • Manager Responded on 5/12/2017

      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.

    Stephanie D from Leroy, IL recommends this vacation rental

    We've been vacationing at Okaloosa Island (Fort Walton Beach, Florida) and renting through Alicia Hollis every year for 12 years and I would higly recommend the entire experience. The rooms are well taken care of and if you have any issue at all, you just call and they'll take care of it. We stay at the El Matador and even though it's the oldest complex on the island, there are units that are remodeled and are very nice. One thing that makes it nice is that it's at the very end of the island so it doesn't feel as crowded on the beach. The beach is amazing with its white powdery sand and the ocean is a beautiful emerald green. There is never a shortage of restaurants and shopping and you can even take the short drive to Destin and find many more things to do. A great overall experience every time we visit!
