Alotta Colada was the perfect vacation spot!


You could not ask for a more beautiful and clean vacation home. The view is stunning and the layout is perfect. My family had a wonderful vacation and we did not want to leave. Everything about Alotta Colada was amazing. It had everything we had wanted and much more. We hope to visit again soon and enjoy the amenities of this incredible home. It is the a dream vacation home.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much and I sure appreciate you taking the time to write a review!! Matt

Lovely little place. (Mas Coladas)


Just a short walk to the beach. Restricted view of the water from the deck. Giant bedroom with partitioned desk area. Nice tiled walk-in shower. The complimentary umbrella/chair setup was great! Only downsides were the A/V did not work(never got fixed while we were there) and the kitchen, while nice, lacked some important utensils(grill utensil, pasta stir, chopping block, etc.) Our first trip to the Emerald Coast was great. We will be back!

Perfect for our wedding 02.18.18 (Alotta Colada)


I selected the Alotta Colada beach house for ease of access to the beach and the number of beds available (I think 40). The house was PERFECT for our wedding party to stay at, plus a few extra guests, and we all had a BLAST. Everyone was raving about how awesome the house is. Romeo (Facilities manager) and Matt (Owner) are very nice and helpful, and I'm sure if something had come up they would have helped right away, but we did not have any issues with the house itself or the pool.

Highly recommend this place!

Surprise family vacation (Alotta Colada)


We surprised my mom for her 65th birthday for a week at Alotta Colada. 7 families- 26 of us in all- and plenty of room for everyone both in terms of sleeping arrangements as well in the hang out areas. Never felt crowded. I would note, however, the house has 6 rooms with king or queen beds and the rest of the sleeping arrangements are in bunkrooms (double beds) and on sofa sleepers or cots, which is great for kids but not always what vacationing adults expect. So if you have more than 6 couples you should be aware of this.

Everything was beautifully maintained and high quality. Kitchen had what we needed to cook for and serve so any people and the house wore 26 people well!

The game room was really fun and the kids loved having a pool to play in.

The beach is absolutely gorgeous and the house is in a good location- close to grocery store, shops, restaurants. But lots of traffic on 98, especially on the weekends.

Great service. We got some really good recommendations from owner for things to do in the area/restaurants, and when we had questions or issues they responded immediately (I left some items in a dresser and they immediately mailed them to me).

This is a great house for a big group and we highly recommend it!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I really appreciate it. Sounds like a great party. I would like to note that 6 of the bedrooms in the main house have king or queen beds (one of the rooms has a queen bed and bunks too) and there is also a king room in the guest house. The other three bedrooms have bunk beds.

Alotta Colada - Great for large family fun


We had a wonderful week down in Miramar Beach. Everything was terrific. The house was well appointed very well and there was plenty of room for all 16 of us to spread out and enjoy each other’s company. It was everything that was represented on the website and working with the owner was simple. His responsiveness and all of the information that he passed along to us prior to our arrival date was timely, accurate and direct. As someone who likes good communication, this was a big selling point.

There was so much to do in the house. We came with our family of 16 (three generations including my in-laws in their 70’s, their children and spouses and then 7 grandchildren ranging in ages from 24 down to 10.

We never found ourselves stepping on each other. There were TV’s in every room hooked up to cable and DVD players. We are not a TV family and watched almost no TV. We did puzzles, played games, walked on the beach, played in the sand, made use of the pool (which at 91 degrees was plenty warm for the kids to swim in) and ate. The highlights of course were the four master bedrooms, the game room, the big court yard, the pool and of course it was very easy to walk over to what has to be one of the most beautiful beaches in the continental US… snow white fine sand where walked aimlessly for hours each day sea shelling and watching the waves and playing with the kids.

The outlet malls close by were a plus as the kids wanted to run over and shop. Being right on the beach helped us feel secluded and away from the bustle of the main highway. We grocery shopped and ate in the entire time we were there (the main kitchen/living room was so well laid out and perfect for us to congregate and socialize) so we did not get to sample any of the restaurants but there seemed to be plenty of them around.

We would absolutely recommend this for a family reunion or large family or multi family vacation and as your guestbook showed you had lots of weddings there as well and I could see how this would be a perfect spot to get married out in the beach.

Again, we can’t thank you enough for making our vacation wonderfully enjoyable.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the fantastic review. We are glad you enjoyed our home as much as we do. We do our very best to make it the PERFECT vacation home. We look forward to your return.


Wonderful vacation! (Daiquiri Days I)


Our family of 4 brought my mother in law and mother to Daquiri Days for a weeks vacation. We absolutely loved the home! We all had plenty of space and loved the location. Having a 7 year old and a 6 month old, we were hesitant when it came to finding a place to stay. Daquiri Days 1 was perfect for us. The beach was easy to get to during the day and the pool was so convenient in the evenings. We definitely recommend staying here!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review. I appreciate you taking the time to write it. Its not easy to book a home online for your family to enjoy. There are so many choices and you don't really know what you will get until you show up. Reviews are very important and are greatly appreciated by both us and future guests.

Happy Family!

Great House and Location - Love It!!! (Daiquiri Days I)


Perfect location and layout for our family of 5 - Mom, Dad, Daughter, Son-in-Law and Granddaughter! House will accommodate more, however, with the great layout. We had our privacy in the fantastic master on main floor with private bath while the daughter, S-I-L and granddaughter stayed upstairs with 2 bedrooms, each with a private bath! Perfect! House was clean, neat, and the pool was fantastic! Really appreciated that the kitchen was so well stocked, great TVs, books and toys, pool toys, and beach chairs! The new owners are great and very helpful. Glad they are maintaining the property as well as the former owners did, as we have stayed in the home for several years and were not disappointed this year! One of the best things about this location is that this is an area with no condos nearby, so the beach is never crowded! We already have our reservation for next year!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review!!! I really appreciate it. Looking forward to you seeing the home next year after we have a chance to do some remodeling.

Magical Holidays! (Daiquiri Days II)


Daiquiri Days 2 is a magical spot to spend time with your extended family. The house is very spacious and exceeding well equipped. There is a heated swimming pool that allows you to swim on even the coolest evenings. We have dreamed about staying in this house for several years and we made that dream come true over the Christmas Holidays! The memories that we made as a family will last a lifetime. The owners of the house are very personable and are eager to make your stay, memorable! Be sure to book far in advance, because those who know the house will be eager to return.

Owner's Response: Thank you guys very much for taking the time to write a review. I am glad you love our home as much as we do. Great reviews like yours will help others understand what a great property it really is. Glad you guys are booked already for next year to enjoy again.

I LOVE THIS HOUSE!! (Daiquiri Days II)


My stay at Daiquiri Days was the perfect getaway for my family. The house had everything we needed for our stay. The proximity to the beach was ideal. The pool was a must for my kids. The decor and appliances are top notch. The house is in a fantastic location with shopping (outlet mall across the street), restaurants, and grocery stores near by. This is by far the nicest place we have stayed in the Destin area. I met the owners, Matt & Mary. They could not have been more friendly and nice. We had no problems or concerns at all with our rental. I would definitely recommend this property and I will definitely be back!! Thank you for a great vacation!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the great review. We really appreciate it. Most of all it is a huge help for future guests.

Beautiful family home with enough room for 23 people. Short (and I mean short) walk to beach and close to everything. We will back

Awesome! Amazing and so accommodating! (Alotta Colada)


The house is in a perfect location. We had a family reunion with 28 people ranging in age from 6-80. The bedrooms were comfortable, the layout perfect for family gatherings and mealtime. If we had any questions or problems they were taken care of quickly.
