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.
Fully equipped kitchen and 3 flat screen TV's, 2 DVD's. High speed internet with WIFI. New upgrades. Come and enjoy.

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.

"Family vacation
As always,a great experience!"
Jul 23, 2018 - Sam S., Marion, IL

"Great Family place
This is our third time coming to El Matador and love it each and every time. It's quiet, family friendly, great beach access and very relaxing."
Jul 09, 2018 - , Denton, TX

"Perfect location
Great location that was away from the hustle of the traffic but close enough to drive to the hustle.
Other than a washing machine struggle, we loved it. I hate Hotel furniture. Many resorts only have this type of furniture. Not here, the condo had a very homey and relaxing feel. "
Sep 05, 2017 - John M., Jackson, TN

"Excellent Balcony View!
We enjoyed our stay at El Matador 361. We got to see dolphins playing every morning from the balcony and I really liked that the condos have grocery carts that you can bring your groceries up on! "

"One of the Best Gulf Front Beach Views
El Matador is possibly one of the best gulf front beach properties on Okaloosa Island. From the white sandy beach, clear emerald green and blue waters, warm breezes, it's our home away from home. Great months stay in unit #361, well stokes kitchen, decorated with coastal décor (maybe a little too much for some, but nicely done). Excellent views and feet away from the beach. Only down side, was my husband got stuck in the elevator twice during our last week. Property management didn't call for elevator repairs until days later, which was frustrating, but had one out of the two elevators in our building working quickly once Otis repair tech were onsite. All in all, a great time. Look forwarding to staying again next September. "

"8 years as renter in unit 360
8 year renter. Beautiful condo with great view. Owner has made subtle improvements over the years. Living room furniture needs up-dating and it's condition is usually a negative topic of conversation with guests. New TV is great and cable package appreciated. Rented again for 2017."

"Unit 361 Stay 26Mar-2April 2016
The condo is very nice. This particular unit has a nice view and cute character/features/decor inside. The large patio is nice as it is accessible from the family room as well as the master bedroom. It is nice to have two bathrooms. Negatives are the carpet is ready to be replaced and there is a huge amount of variation within the different condo/unit upkeep "standards". This results in a sub-standard feel within the condo complex and one specific complaint is that we had to listen to a hammer-drill and tile saw for several hours on three days of our stay (pretty unacceptable). Grounds are mowed regularly and look nice, but there are little things everywhere that could result in a better review (example, broken/no basketball net on hoop). Pools were maintained well and were in great shape. Fitness area/building was nice as well. Finally, I think it would be nice to be asked how our stay was during checkout and/or if we had any issues (Before-hand interactions/emails were great). "

"very nice condo
Only a couple of things bothered me about the condo. The carpet felt very dirty and I felt the need to wear shoes all the time. Also, we were very disappointed that the washer and dryer was 'out-of-order.' There was a washer and dryer down the hall, just not as convenient. Took us until the day before we left to figure out how to turn the volume up on the TV. Overall though, there were more plusses. Perfect view of the ocean from the master bedroom and the deck. Easy elevator access. Beach and pool right there. Condo had all the appliances needed for a comfortable stay. I would stay here again. I liked the quieter end of the beach."

"Great Week at the Beach!
Our unit was spacious, decorated for a true beach experience and had all of the comforts of home."

"El Matador
Loved working with Chris at AJH !!!! She was the best and made sure our vacation was perfect. "
May 12, 2014 - Robin T., Pleasent Ridge, MI

"Best Location! Amazing Ocean View!
Top floor of bldg 3 was an excellent choice. It was peaceful, no noise from other guests and we listened to the ocean waves all night. We enjoyed many meals on the balcony. Perfect beach vacation! "

"Condo 361
Great place to vacate and beautiful."
Aug 09, 2013 - Tony S., Smyrna, TN

"Beautiful updated condo
The pictures on the website didn't do this condo justice. It has been beautifully updated! We throughly enjoyed every minute. Thank you to the staff at Alicia Hollis Realty for all of your help. Each one was very professional as well as very helpful. We call ElMatador our second home. We try to visit every year. We love it! "

"El Matador Anniversary
We have vacationed on our wedding anniversary at various spots along Santa Rosa Blvd. since the 1970's and El Matador is our favorite location. Beautiful beaches, plenty of dining opportunities in the area, and a pleasant family atmosphere keep it tops on our list. El Matador 361 suits our needs just fine, is usually ready when we arrive, and offers a picturesque view of the Gulf. The A.J. Hollis Realtor staff has always been very gracious and professional, happy to provide helpful hints on dining and shopping when asked. We look forward to many more anniversaries at this same spot. "
