About James Slatton

We are not professional renters. James purchased a home on the beach that has 2 individual units and only need half the space. So, he began by renting out the lower unit. Due to the success of Sticks in the Sand, We now have 4 almost identical townhomes to handle the overflow of request.

James Slatton purchased this townhome in 2013

Why James Slatton chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

Walking distance to a bar/restaurant and directly on the beach with private ownership all the way to the water. This unit is identical in layout and 4 blocks away from my house. It can be rented 3 ways, a 2 bedroom, studio unit or both. So it was perfect to maintain all my renters in one location.

What makes this townhome unique

Centrally located between Destin, Baytown and Sandestin. I provide everything you need from child toys, chairs and your own piece of private beach to enjoy. There is an outdoor shower to rinse off in and two flat panels LCD tv's to relax indoors. Perfect for a couples getaway, a small family or group of friends. Sleep where you can hear the waves and not see the cars!

Sticks in the sand studio unit

  • 4 of 5

Great location, view and awesome beach. The unit was clean and the owner was responsive. A few doors did not open correctly but handyman came right away to fix them. Not enough household supplies were provided i.e. toilet paper, paper towels and trash bags but I would definetly rent it again.

Super close to a beautiful beach.

  • 3 of 5

Place is very close to the beach, just steps away, and very convenient to everywhere. It was a nice quiet beach. A convenient shower outside with hot and cold water for washoff. The condo is a studio, so it is kinda small. Four people would be really cramped. No table to eat at inside. There is a table on the deck. But sometimes you just like to sit inside. There is a few maintenance issues the owner should address. Ex; Doors difficult to open, things pulling from the wall, just little things. We gave a list to the owners. The bed is comfortable. I slept pretty well. That wouldn't happen if there was an issue with the bed. I do think the television in front of the bed should be larger. Very small. So everything was good overall. Nice quiet beach. WARNING! DO NOT LEAVE YOUR BELONGINGS (chais, umbrellas, etc.) ON THE BEACH OVER NIGHT. The story goes... It was a nice uncrowded beach, so we put our belongings in a nice pile and left them on the beach, away from the shoreline. We didn't want to have to keep carrying them back and forth. I woke up the next morning and it was all gone. We found out that Code Enforement combs the beach every night. Ordinance says nothing is to be left on the beach after dark. We were unaware of this, no signs were posted anywhere, and nothing in the rules of the condo agreement. Believe me we looked everywhere and read everything. Walton County Code Enforement says everything goes straight to the landfill. Which I'm positive is a lie. Some of the items were brand new. No one would throw them away. Why wouldn't they give a first time warning. Or a small fine to recover the items. Approximately $100 worth of items. Chalked it up as a loss, and moved on. That would have been good info to know. Still had a good time regardless of what I call theft.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review, we are sorry you lost your items. The "LEAVE NO TRACE" law has been in Walton County and most beaches in the area since I have lived here for over 7 years. But we have adjusted our check in information to also state it for those that do not know the policy. I have had to charge guest for lost beach chairs that I am sure they did not know the rule either so I am creating some laminate signs to go in each of the units. We look forward to your next stay at Sticks in the Sand

Very Relaxing

  • 4 of 5

We loved the location and would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a nice, clean place to stay with direct access to the beach. The bed was comfortable and the view, breath taking. Very family friendly for small families. Our daughter had a wonderful time for her first beach trip. The only problem was the noise at night from the people upstairs, but that's not something one can always control. I give it an "A".

Beach Happy

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay right on the beach with no crowds to compete with was super nice. The private beach was well worth a smaller place to stay. Would definately rent a condo in this area again.

Perfect for a couple!

  • 4 of 5

It was so perfect for my husband and I for the 3 days we stayed. We will definitely recommend this perfect condo to all of our friends/family. The owner was super quick to respond, the condo was clean and well stocked, (I would bring some hand soap, lysol wipes, and dish soap if you stay for a full week). Thank you for a fabulous week!

Quaint, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here due to location and privacy (we had our 2 month old with us who loved the sound of the ocean from the patio!). There are several unit options under the same/similar listings on this or another listing site, and we had 4B which is the first floor studio. We could easily walk to the beach, and carry all the extra stuff we had to keep our baby covered. Unit is small, but described appropriately, and we had enough room for our 7 night vacation. We missed having an indoor dining table/bar, or good coffee table to eat off of in the living room (seating for around 6 on patio), some kitchen essentials were missing (mainly a cutting board, so we just bought one), and I can only assume that previous guests took any/all kitchen staples that normally aren't provided by owners, but left by the guests (salt, pepper, coffee filters, spices). Owners provide one roll of toilet paper and paper towels, and one trash bag even though we were staying a week and trash runs twice weekly. We were told of this all in advance, but I don't want to have to pack/purchase this trivial stuff when paying 150+ per night. That being said...I would definitely stay here again. I really enjoyed the beach which was clean and uncrowded. The unit price was great, and the owners were very timely communicators except for the check out information email which arrived 1.5 hours before we were supposed to be out, and didn't read until we were on the road. We had people above us who we could occasionally hear, but I expect that anywhere. The unit was well maintained, bed was very comfortable, the AC was cold but could use a vent near the bed rather than two in the kitchen. The best shopping centers are within 10-15minutes, and downtown Destin is about 20min, and a CVS is within about a mile. Two TVs and adequate channels, but who cares when you're at the beach?! We really enjoyed our stay and would return (plus they offer a repeat renter perk). Thank you to the owners!
