Awesome condo! Great location!

5/5 Excellent

Amazing Place!
The pictures were extremely accurate. This was the nicest decorated and remodeled property we've stayed at. Loved the decor and investment that was made to make this a unique, clean and very cool place to stay. Any stay at this complex again would have to be in 50 Shades of Blue!

5/5 Excellent

Great Family Stay
Stayed at 50 Shades a couple weeks ago in September. The condo is fantastic (we picked this condo for its location and decor - my kids loved it!) and so is Chuck. He was super helpful with the couple of questions we had...text us back instantly with anything we needed and also made it very easy checking in. After reading previous reviews and actually talking to Chuck, I would suggest getting in touch with him if you need or notice anything. We normally just do breakfast and easy lunches when we get a condo for vacation, kitchen is very spacious for cooking. If you do the same and run out for groceries I would suggest getting a few paper towels, toilet paper and trash bags. Great Beach! Great Location! Close to lots of shopping and restaurants. The only thing that could may be an issue for some...worked out ok for us...is the 3rd bed room or bunk room. The picture looks a little more roomy than in person, but kids would love it! We had 4 adults and 2 small children and only used that room for our clothes and suitcases. All top bunks are really close to the ceiling and would be close to impossible for adults of with any size to get in and then back out of :) but our kiddos loved them! Chuck, thanks again for all your wonderful suggestions on places to eat and visit, for your call to let us know about the weather conditions after Sally came through and for your amazing hospitality! Next time we visit Destin, we will for sure check your properties first!

5/5 Excellent

What a great place!
