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.

"Decorated So Cute with Beach Theme
Condo 444 is decorated so festively with ocean and sea decorations throughout each room. Unfortunately, our vacation at this condo was interrupted, and we had to evacuate due to Hurricane Michael. The condo is spacious for a couple. The balcony has a table and chairs overlooking the pool area and has a view of the Gulf ... so beautiful! The condo could use a little updating, (new carpet and some painting) but overall, it is a very nice condo right on the beach. The bed was very comfortable with plenty of closet space. We were so disappointed to have to evacuate, and we hope to return in better weather in the future. We were satisfied with our short vacation stay. "

"Relaxation Station!!
The entire rental experience made for a perfect vacation. I didn't have to worry about anything but relaxing and enjoying time with my family. The view is incredible and the location is great!! The room was very clean and quiet. I never heard any outside noises. Cant wait to go back again. This is the perfect vacation spot."

"Satisfied Ft Walton renters
Love Ft Walton. So pretty. The beach is always beautiful. Love the white sand. We will definitely be back. "

"El Matador
The unit is pleasantly decorated & is in a very good location for a relaxed beach vacation. A big advantage of El Matador is that it’s away from the congestion and traffic of other beaches in the area & the dunes to the west are undeveloped, hence a general sense of privacy. Unit 444 is near the main pool and a short walk to the beach. The beach service rentals are reasonably priced for the area. One drawback is that we were never given a key to use the unit’s deadbolt lock. In fact, the lock should be upgraded to a coded lock with an effective deadbolt. A counterbalance to that is the facility is effectively gated with a security guard. Chris Ault handled our rental for Ms. Hollis’s practice— she’s sharp & responsive. Overall, good rental."

"El Matador 444
Good except we had to pay for our umbrellas and chairs. We were charged the same for 444 as for 434 which did include umbrellas and chairs. We had to cancel our reservation the week before due to tropical depressionn. Had we kept the reservation for 434, our umbrellas and chairs would have been included. We felt 444 should have been lower by the cost of the umbrellas and chairs (150.00)."

"Greatest beach spot in the Pan Handle
Our family has been coming to Fort walton for over 40 years. Most years we come down in July and then back again in September. Great water, fishing, beach, and the El Matador is always superior. This location allows for miles of access to Eglin Air Force beaches and as compared to D stin there is zero traffic"

"Another great weekend
El Matador is a great property and a wonderful location and I've stayed there many times. The only complaint about my last stay is the bedroom needs to be rearranged to take advantage of the beautiful ocean view while laying in bed. "

"Woderful, Peaceful and Relaxing Stay!
This unit provided us with a very , relaxing beach vacation. The unit was very comfortable and has been partially upgraded. They view was spectacular! "

"Best view on the Emerald Coast!
Condo is clean, but dated. Location is amazing - coffee every morning on the balcony with an amazing view! If you're coming for the beach or the pool, toes in the sand - this place is perfect! Kitchen is adequately stocked, bed and furnishings are comfortable. Chris Ault at Alicia J. Hollis Realty is GREAT! She is available, attentive and cares very much about your experience!"

"EM444 October
We have been staying at El Matador for 25 years. Although the condo is one of the oldest on the beach, we LOVE the location because of the proximity to the undeveloped land on the west side. This was our first visit to EM 444. The unit was beautifully decorated and clean, but the kitchen equipment was terribly lacking. We like to cook while at the beach, and this kitchen was not set up to allow us to cook what we usually do. AJ Hollis Realty is a great group to do business with, and frankly, it is because they rent unit 444 that we reserved it. We look forward to kitchen improvements being made before we make reservations for next year."

"Great stay
Great stay"
Aug 09, 2016 - Daniel K., Fairfax, VR

Great place to stay. I would just make a few modifications to the appliance of the unit. They need to remove the blinds from the sliding glass doors and bedroom and replace with a curtain. That is really the only down side to the decor."

"Spacious 1 bedroom condo
This was a very spacious and open one bedroom condo. While it may may not be up to date with new appliances or granite counter tops it was relaxing and fun. Loved the water colors, they were light hearted. Bed was comfortable and the unit was clean. The only thing that was very annoying was that there was someone working out of a bucket truck outside our window most of our stay and alarm was deafening. I don't know when the best time would be do to this type of work, maybe the winter. "

"Enjoyed our stay at El Matador
Enjoyed our visit condo was nice but liked the other one last time better. This one was neat and clean but could use an update."

"Lovely and comfortable
This is my 4th time to ElMatador. Lovely. My unit decor was darling. Just a couple of things. Perhaps a small bottle of dish detergent for washing dishes by hand, when needed. The bed linens were a little worn. The bottom sheet was pilly(sp?)with little tiny bumps. The entire property is beautiful. You must have a great staff. We had a great vacation!!"

"Experience and thoughts
We enjoyed the condo however it is becoming tired looking. The kitchen is difficult to maneuver as it is tight quarters. The view is very pretty yet for the cost the kitchen definately could use some upgrading. Thank you."

"EM 444
Great condo! Wonderful view of the gulf!"

"Overrall Stay Comments
EL Matador 444 needs kitchen & bathroom upgrades and air conditioner replacement for sure. I would not rent this unit again. Would like to possibly buy a condo at some point and we like the location of the El Matador but the prices are a little higher than we were hoping to spend. We will possibly look at buying in about 1-3 years closer to retirement time for us. We enjoyed our stay and it was quiet and relaxing. We actually did not spend much time in the unit since we have family on both sides that live local. We just like our own space as we get older. We appreciate the opportunity to stay at the El Matador and we will contact you in the future when we plan to come back. Right now we are looking to be there for Thanksgiving possibly but do not have definitel plans yet. Thank you"

Location is distant from all of the places of interest, but the view from the window is wonderful. Furniture in the room is old but fine. Overall I liked the place."
