Vacation Dream Spot!!
We have stayed at El Matador for 10 years and love the location and atmosphere. This was our first time staying in 318 and plan to rebook for next year. It exceeded our expectations and we had a fabulous vacation week. We were impressed with how comfy all three beds were and loved that there were two double beds in the guest bedroom!!! And I LOVED the dining room table. The only suggestions I would make would be to add a tv in the guest room and a muffin pan in the kitchen. We are already looking forward to next year!!!! Thank you for sharing this little piece of heaven with us!!

Amazing! Who knew the first floor could be as beautiful as the third? We loved it!
Overall, we absolutely loved this unit. I would say the mattress on the master bed as well as the mattresses in the guest room could use an upgrade. They are fine for short stays but for a month or longer they are not ideal. The bathrooms were amazing as was the kitchen and all of the cookware. The decor throughout was welcoming and the chairs on the patio were comfortable and colorful. This was our second extended stay in BLD 3 and we hope to do so again. Last year we stayed on the third floor and I didn’t think there would be anything comparable but your first floor unit is a hidden gem and we will be looking to rent next winter. Thank you for sharing your beach home rental with us.

Beautiful unit has a lot of storage to store belongings. We really enjoyed having the pool and beach a few steps away especially with a toddler!

Unit 318 was was in great condition having been updated recently. Would definitely stay in this unit again. The glass sliding door in the living room is hard to open…. Just needs to be adjusted. We had an excellent vacation stay.

Really nice Condo
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at El Matador. We have been visiting for years and hope to continue. I have one request.....the shower curtain in the master bath just about drove me crazy. I am not sure but think the hooks are not heavy enough to support the curtain when you slide it. You might want to upgrade those. Everything else was GREAT !

This was our third year. We love it there. Our unit 318 was gorgeous and very well maintained! Last night there we decided to go ahead and book this unit again next year. Until next year! Tyra

Our rental was absolutely wonderful. We are hoping to get the exact same one next year. It had all the things we could ask for and the ground level was perfect for our large family to come snd go to the beach. The El matador quickly became mine and my families favorite spot. This place literally felt like our home away from home.

Newly Updated
Unit 318 was recently updated and was beautiful. The beds were very comfortable. Being on the first floor had it advantages as it was great to just be able to step right out onto the patio and head down to the beach. There was no "view" of the ocean being on the first floor, but we didn't mind. We loved that we could rent 2 chairs and an umbrella for a nominal fee. The beach was not crowded and there is a long stretch of undeveloped beach property on the west side of the property that allows for long, peaceful walks away from the crowds.
