Our condo is located on an uncrowded island in Fort Walton Beach, Florida. Okaloosa Island. It's approximately six miles from Destin. In Fort Walton Beach and Destin there are countless things to do and see. There is the Gulfarium that entertains vacationers of all ages with live sea life shows daily. There are many championship golf courses within a 15-minute drive! Miniature golf, adventure parks, go-carts are right down the road! For teens and people of all ages, a new boardwalk was built in Fort Walton Beach--two miles down the road. There are restaurants, volleyball nets, game rooms, souvenir shops, etc. to entertain the young and old. In addition, the Destin Commons, Silver Sands Factory Outlets and Santa Rosa Mall provide all your shopping needs. This is a fisherman's haven, too! Take a glass bottom boat tour and snorkel in the crystal clear turquoise green waters of the Emerald Coast! Then there is my favorite: sinking my toes in the indescribable baby powder white sand!

Why Owner chose Okaloosa Island
After visiting all corners of our favorite state, we discovered The Emerald Coast. The white snow-like sand that never gets hot and always squeaks when you turquoise-colored crystal clear calm friendly southern specifically, the uncrowded location on Okaloosa Island--we fell in love with it all!
What makes this condo unique
We considered many properties in and around Fort Walton Beach and Destin, Florida. What sold us on El Matador resort is the acreage and quietness. The 17 miles of undeveloped beach adjacent to this resort is total peace... In addition, our resort is a permanent home to one third of the residents which fosters pride in its upkeep! Note: Sheets, towels, blankets are provided. In addition, a fully stocked kitchen of pots, pans, utensils, mixing bowels and more are there. Beach chairs and an umbrella is stored in the balcony closet for the use of the guests. A starter roll of paper towels and toilet paper will be in the condo. Beyond that, it is the responsibility of the guests to pick up food and extra needs.
