I also receive multiple inquires on the same day and travel for a living. Please click the "Contact Owner" button to confirm availability and price before you book. The "Request To Book" button puts a hold on the payment that takes 48 hours to clear if I end up declining your "Request to Book."

About James 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.

James Slatton purchased this townhome in 2009

Why James 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

Notes:
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.

Wonderful vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this location to be right on the beach. We loved that we could step right out on the beach and that we could watch the kids go back up to the house without going with them. The house was great and just as described. It was a big plus that the location is just far enough away from the busiest parts of the area but it seemed we were able to get everywhere we wanted to go in 20 minutes or less. Definitely someplace we would stay again.

Love the location! Very clean!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here Aug 24-27! This was our first time to Florida for family vaca! I had no idea what to do or were to start. My main concern was I was taking my 7mo infant with me. (As well as 2 teens.) this location was perfect for me! I didn't have to carry baby with me far to get to the beach. Or to eat out. You literally walk down the steps and your on the beach! When it was nap time, I could sit on the bedroom balcony and watch the waves while she was sleeping! The view from bedroom balcony as well as the living room balcony were perfect! We seen dolphins a few times during our stay! I had so many questions and they were quick to respond every time! We had so much fun! Pompano joes was just a small walk down the beach. Which is perfect when toting a baby :) I will def be returning here! No complaints at all!

Right on the beach

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed here and have recommended it to friends. It is directly on beach, which we find so handy with 3 kids (they can run up to go to the bathroom and get snacks, etc). The unit had everything we needed. The location is great too! (Next door to Pompano Joe's, there are a few nearby ice cream and retail shops). We walked down to a local coffee shop just down the road a couple of mornings. It was a great vacation!
