About Shari Slatton

We are not professional renters. This unit was originally purchased as James's home on the beach and for years he rented out the first floor. We call it Sticks in the Sand because it is on pylons on the beach. Now married with 3 children we are moving to a larger space and converting the whole unit to a rental. It has 2 individual units A and B, so we can rent it 3 ways Due to the success of the original Sticks in the Sand, We are now have 4 townhomes to rent and continue to hope to provide our homes for families to enjoy.

Shari Slatton purchased this townhome in 2009

Why Shari Slatton chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

Sticks in the Sand is close to everything, walking distance to a bar/restaurant and directly on the beach with private ownership all the way to the water. . It can be rented 3 ways, a 3, 2 or 1 bedroom, unit. So it was perfect to maintain all my renters in one location or for those that want to bring families some years and only themselves others.

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 a big screen 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 or hear the cars

We loved our stay at Sticks in the Sand. The view from our balcony was amazing. It was so nice to just walk down a few stairs and be on the beach. The property is located close to many restaurants and fun activities one really fun restaurant is within walking diatance. We had a wonderful time and would love to come back to Sticks in the Sand again. Owners are very helpful and responsive to any questions or concerns you may have about your stay.

Great for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed our stay at our Sticks in the Sand town home! The property was nice and perfect for what we needed for a family of 5. The beach is gorgeous and private. We could see dolphins from our back deck in the evening. Close to all of the fun activities, and everyone was so friendly. The parking spots are very small, so if you are planning on have 2 vehicles plan to walk a bit to park your second vehicle. Overall a wonderful vacation, will definitely book here again!

Simply Amazing

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Sticks In The Sand the second week of May and had an amazing time. If you have any doubts about whether to stay at a hotel chain versus Sticks In the Sand then let me put your mind at ease. The location and convenience of Sticks In The Sand is worth every penny. The beach is gorgeous and private. Sticks In The Sand is also near every restaurant and store you can imagine. The owners are awesome, and will help you with any questions or issues you have. I am giving them 5 stars because the customer service was outstanding. I almost always get home sick when we travel, but I can honestly say that this was the first time that I truly felt at home and didn't miss home once. Destin, Florida is a beautiful place to visit. Our trip was simply amazing.

Terry and Kaye H.

Right on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Right on the beach! It's a townhouse on stilts so you take a set of stairs and your toes are in the sand. Hear the waves at night. Best sleep I've had in ages. Comfortable beds, clean sheets, updated well stocked kitchen and baths, tile floors throughout. Bring your own soap along with the other items they suggest on their list, something I forgot. Owner very responsive and even came over and replaced our remote that was missing, but who needs a remote when you're at the beach? Plenty of chairs to take down to the beach and they even provide beach towels. Great high end washer and dryer. Very convenient to everything and no searching for parking. And right on the beach!!!

Like other marketjng websites Homeaway/VRBO has instituted a "service fee" for travelers that book through their website. While this "fee" does contain some additional services like 24 hour phone service and the ability to purchase rental insurance, if you prefer to avoid the fee by express mailing me a check or paying through paypal at https://www.paypal.me/sticksinthesand However you must choose the send money to a friend option to avoid the 3% fee. DO NOT CHOOSE PAY FOR GOODS AND SERVICES or you will be charged the paypal fee deducted from your deposit However because their is also an online option where people can "Book Now" no reservation is confirmed until your check has been received and paypal processed. I can not decline rentals in hopes your check is on the way. So their is a possibility your reservation request may not be accepted and your check returned, or we me may have another property available. If you do prefer to pay online then the preferred method of payment to help you avoid the credit card fees is E-Check as there is an additional 3% charged by Homeaway for Credit card/Paypal and it will be deducted from your deposit refund. Holiday rates vary. Your deposit will be refunded 7-14 business days after checkout. 4pm check in -10 am check out. All our calendars are kept offline until all Sticks In the Sand Properties are booked. If this property is occupied we will recommend one with similar sleeping accommodations that has availability in our email response to your inquiry.

WE DO NOT rent this property to those under 25 during spring break, however we do rent in to them in other seasons but require special terms and conditions, additional deposits and insurance. The owner must be notified if you are under 25 at the time of inquiry or you will be considered a falsified reservation and cancelled in accordance with our terms and conditions.

Sticks in the Sand is located directly on the ocean there is no better way to experience the beach. Our steps from the beach is actually a staircase in to the sand! This is a non smoking non pet unit. I do this in order to be able to rent to high allergenic customers and do not make exceptions. I provide the beach chairs but do not provide beach towels or umbrellas. Those can be rented from local vendors and set up daily.
