El Matador 360-BEACHFRONT PARADISE - free beach service!

Guest Rating:

Vacation rental condominium. Sleeps 6, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms. No pets allowed.

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

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.

    We were directed to a great beachfront unit by Chris and the check in process was very simple. The unit was clean and in great shape. The weather was perfect. Couldn't have had a better vacation.

      This penthouse, beach front - corner unit is certainly a favorite with our guest. Nice to see another happy review... thank you Robert for trusting us at Alicia J Hollis, realtor for your vacation needs!

    a guest from Trussville, AL recommends this vacation rental

    I would very easily give this unit a 5 star rating on every category except for one major flaw. The master bathroom does not have a door on entry or on commode area. The sound from use in the middle of night woke my wife on every occasion. (and her to me). This will preclude my further use. The unit was beautiful and clean. Realtor was great. I would recommend, with a caveat, the unit to a friend. DS

    Eric S from Edmond, Oklahoma recommends this vacation rental

    Overall it was a good experience. Condo is the best of the El Matador condos we have ever stayed in and we have been coming here since 2006. It was very nicely furnished and has an amazing view of the beach. One fatal flaw that would keep me form renting there again was the fact that there is no door to the Master Bathroom. Anyone using the bathroom/sink/closet is very visible to anyone else in the room. Some things should remain a mystery in a marriage. Simply adding a door would solve a lot of problems.

    Hollis agency personnel were good to work with.

    • Manager Responded on 3/31/2018

      Thanks a lot for your comments, and we brought that to the owners attention. We are so happy that you enjoyed the amazing view of the condo, and also to see our dolphins from there. We shall see what we can do about a door. Come back to 360 El Matador.

    The rental condo was absolutely perfect! The view was spectacular and beautiful at any time of the day. Ate breakfast/lunch/dinner on the porch as the views were breathtaking. Unit very clean, beautifully decorated and spacious for our family. Kids enjoyed their room with their own tv while husband and I enjoyed our quiet quarters with the beach waves sounds in the background. Highly recommend this condo as the owner has done a nice job to keep it well maintained. Sharing a hidden secret with the world for this location but plan on coming back to this rental next year!

    We had family stay in Unit 360. The whole experience was fantastic. The unit was very nice on the inside and the view of at least 20 miles of beach was awesome. El Matador is the place to stay on Okaloosa Island.

    Newly refinished condo, very nice and clean. It could use a few more items like a clock in the bedroom, even though we were on Island time, and a few more bowls in the kitchen. Been staying at this resort since early 90's, best unit I have ever been in. Wonderful vacation.

    • Manager Responded on 11/12/2013

      We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. We appreciate all comments on this wonderful new condo.
