El Matador has long been a vacation destination. This beautiful 2-bedroom unit has been upgraded and sure that the pictures tell the story. Book this one early or it will be gone.
THIS CONDO HAS A SATURDAY TO SATURDAY REQUIREMENT DURING PEAK SEASON!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.

VERY GOOD

GREAT OVERALL STAY - NICE UNIT - PERFECT VIEWS.

May 2012

Mary Jo W. The unit and view were enjoyable.

The modem needs a different cord or positioning to be able to effectively use a laptop computer - sitting at the kitchen table. There is no chair sitting right next to the table with the modem on it. It was awkward to hook up to - and we were reported as having tangled their cords up - just trying to figure out a position that would work well.

The countertops were beautiful - but it is difficult to visibly see spots and food residue on them because they are so dark. This is good and bad. We were accused of leaving the counter tops sticky and I had brought my own cleaning wipes and used them often on that countertop - but unless you run your fingers over it - you miss sticky spots. You can't see them - but you can feel them.


I did not like being scolded by Alicia and being told how trashy we left the place and how inconvenienced the cleaning crew was with nit-picky things. They are paid to clean and that was a normal level of cleaning.

BEAUTIFUL HOME

Had a great time!!

BOOKED EL MATADOR RENTALS THRU ALICIA HOLLIS FOR DECADES.

October 2012

Randy R. I have always booked rentals at El Matador thru Alicia Hollis since the 80's. Never a problem, always helpful, and promptly takes care of any problem that may arise. Can't ask for better people to work with, especially Chris, the person I usually deal with. El Matador is, I think, the oldest condo on the island, but the best in my opinion. Very well maintained, 24 hour security, and miles of undelevoped beach next door. Lots of roomy lawn space, large main pool next to beach that is spotless, and friendly beach guys that handle chair and umbrella rentals. This is my favorite spot on my favorite beach.
