About James Slatton

We are not professional renters. James purchased a home on the beach that has 2 individual units and only needed half the space. So, he began by renting out the lower unit. Due to the success of Sticks in the Sand, We now have 3 beachfront Townhomes to handle the overflow of request.

James Slatton purchased this condo in 2010

Why James Slatton chose Scenic Gulf Drive East

The units are close to everything, 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, 1 bedroom unit or both. So it was perfect to maintain all my renters in one location.

What makes this condo 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 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

Guestbook comments from the manager

Really good value for this stretch of beach. Right on beach and comfortable for the two of us. We had a great stay!

great location right on the beach

  • 5 of 5

Loved the perk of just walking out and being on the beach. Water was gorgeous! Only bad side was trash at the entrance stinking very badly the 2 days we were there.

Owner's Response: Thanks Tammi, we enjoyed hosting you. Trash has to be taken to the curb for pickup early Monday and Thursday morning. If the previous guest didn't perform that function before your stay then it will pile up until the next pickup. Sorry it happened during your stay but we look forward to seeing you next time at Sticks In The Sand.

Worst stay in Florida in the last 10 years

  • 2 of 5

Pros: Direct access to ocean, private beach, nice view.

Cons: all the rest. Parking: slots are so tiny that SUVs, minivans, and trucks take neighbor's space. If you come late, your spot is formally empty but you cannot fit in your car. The suggested overflow free parking is about 1 mile away - getting sweat after walking guaranteed. Furniture: dirty couches and an armchair - disgusting to sit on. No dining table! All drawers and a wardrobe look very old and dirty, don't want to trust any clothing to keep in. Home appliances: furnace/AC is right in the bedroom - works all the time and so loud that it is hard to sleep. Washer and drier are worn out and loud, so don't run them while at home, especially in the night. Towels are as old as the building - had to buy our own. Payments: we had to pay prior to seeing/signing the agreement. The owner charges all extra fees towards your security deposit, so don't expect to get it fully refunded if you pay by a credit card.

Owner's Response: Dear Alexey Porollo, As I told you in my email. I am sorry you could not read my website, email communications or the bold section of the rental agreement payment section. But your only complaint during or after your stay was the 3% credit card transaction fee and your review is just an attempt to punish me for being mad at yourself. Everyone else reading this review please take notice of how many times I reference the credit card transaction fees and how to avoid them. Also look for ANY photo that shows a dining table to see how OFF BASE this review actually is.

Amazing rental for two people. You'd have to be in the ocean to get any closer.

  • 5 of 5

This property was the perfect way to spend our one year anniversary. The perfect space for two people, well maintained and very clean. The balcony is spectacular and is where we spent the majority of our time when we weren't on the beach (which is literally steps away). The grill and kitchen set up were perfect for when we bought local seafood and it had everything we needed. Having the beach chairs available was such a plus. I highly recommend this property.

When you first arrive, the parking lot (because it is smaller) and the back part of all of the units is a bit of an eye sore because of the garbage cans and multiple cars for all of the units, but don't judge the property by that. It is well maintained and makes for a great stay!

Perfect for two people

  • 4 of 5

We were close to everything. We biked around to restaurants several times. We walked down to the beach from the deck everyday. The gas grill added to our enjoyment as well.

Good

It was exactly what I expected it to be since I had been to a similar condo before. If you want to be on the beach this is the place.
