Our family condo sits on a Barrier Island in the Gulf of Mexico. It is separated from the mainland by a beautiful bay. It comes fully furnished with all the amenities you would find in your own home. The El Matador condo complex is large (13 acres) yet is never crowded. It has an excellent workout facility, two pools, lighted tennis courts, and an event center for large gatherings. It is a gated secure complex with 24 hr. guard and video system. To get to the beaches it is a 30-45 second walk to either of the two boardwalks leading to the beaches that stretch for miles and are perfect for beach combing and day dreaming. The clean sugar sand beaches "squeak" when you walk on them.
