The condo was very nice, clean and has a nice view.
Kimberly Lang rental properties was very easy to work with
and very helpful with our needs. Having beach service provided was nice and helpful. Would recommend this condo and Kimberly Lang Rental Properties
We are glad you enjoyed your vacation and we hope to see you again next year!

We were in the area for work and relaxation and this condo fit the bill on both. We arrived late and the check in couldn't of been any easier. Work was completed due to easy access to wireless network with our computers and the beach with chairs and umbrellas was a short walk from our door. There was also a beautiful large swimming pool on the property.
The condo was very comfortable and equipped with everything we needed. There were many fine restaurants and grocery store a short drive away.
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. The seamless check in is the way to go. You just go straight to your unit and get the key out of the lock box and go inside and enjoy your stay. The beach service is big plus. No carrying chairs down to the beach everyday. We hope to see you again next year!1

We were very pleased with Unit 242. It was pretty and very clean. And, even though we were not directly on the beach, we had a nice view of the gulf from our balcony. We had one problem with plumbing and the maintenance man came immediately followed by the housekeeping staff. We couldn't have asked for better staff service. I would give this unit 5 stars for the nice 4 days and 3 nights that we had there. We'll definitely book it again!
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. This unit is extremely nice. We here at Kim Lang pride ourselves on taking care of our guests and units. We hope to see you again next year!

"Fun and relaxation at the Beach!"

Our whole family had a great time! We never left except to go shopping or to dinner. We enjoyed laying on the beach, playing tennis, playing volleyball, and lounging in the hottub. Can't wait to go back and stay longer!

We really enjoyed our stay at the El Matador. We definitely would like to visit again. Condo was great for us and our two boys. Nice view of the gulf from the balcony. Short walk to a great beach! We enjoyed not having to share the beach with lots of people. Only two criticisms we had...the floor was a little dirty in the condo...we would have black feet or socks...noticed that the sweeper was kinda old..so don't know if that had anything to do with it. Also either it wasn't listed or we didn't pay attention...no washer/dryer in condo itself. No big deal using the washer/dryer on each level of the complex. Never had to compete to use it. Overall would recommend this location to anyone.

Condo was very comfortable, just like my home. Beautiful view of Gulf. Both bedrooms had nice Tv's and beds were very comfortable. Kitchen was very modern with beautiful dishware. Beach towels was a definite extra as was the great books to read and games.

Everything about the condo was just as advertised! Great location, wonderful views, short walk to pool and beach. Very clean, there wasn't a thing we needed that wasn't right there in the condo. Beach chair service was a nice amenity. The only thing that was a small problem was the Internet service, sometimes it was working and sometimes it wasn't. Just when we were going to call the number that was provided if we had a problem, it would start working again. This went on the entire week. We had a laptop and ipad and it was the same with both connections. Next time we would call after first having a problem. We had a wonderful time and would rent this condo again.

We stayed in El Matador 242 this year, having stayed a few years back in a different building. This was perfect for us (3 teenagers along!) - loved that there were beach supplies in the balcony closet, beach towels in the unit that were large and soft, chairs and umbrella on the beach! The unit was clean, spacious enough for our needs. The master bedroom was large, clean, and had a large closet as well. The kitchen was well equipped and had plenty of room. Friends were in different units in a different building and our kitchen was nicer! We arrived slightly early, but were allowed into our unit - liked that we had to not go to any agency to gain keys but that a combination lockbox gave us immediate access to the unit. We had a great view from our balcony and the chairs/bar table on it made for nice evenings out. Our family loves the location at the far west end of Okaloosa Island - fewer crowds and lots of beach to walk. We also like the El Matador complex with it large grassy spaces - great for games in the courtyards. We played tennis, our boys enjoyed the basketball court and multiple pools. Many games of beach volleyball were played. I had excellent service from Kimberly Lang rental staff. We received our damage deposit promptly and without problems.
The only negative for the unit was the wireless connection was unreliable and we had to connect to an unprotected network to get wireless.
