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 now have 4 townhomes to rent and continue to hope to provide our homes for families to enjoy.

James Slatton purchased this townhome in 2013

Why James Slatton chose Miramar Beach

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 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 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 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.

Beautiful romantic family friendly getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This property is incredible! It is spacious, conveniently located directly on a private beach, clean, open, a secret gem I am so glad we took a chance on! There are dining options within walking distance. They supplied towels and beach chairs and toys for the kids. The shower outside has hot water and is really convenient. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. We are so sad to leave this sliver of heaven. We walked the beach last night watching all the little animals in the water. Everyone stopped to say hi. People are really friendly here. Loved it!!!!!

Well kept town home. Unbeatable beach access!

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our short stay in 4A. Very nice town home with everything you'll need at a great location! Loved the views from both balconies and the unit has been well maintained. The building shows some wear but that didn't really matter to us. We prefer more rustic places anyway.

Incredibly easy access to the beach. Just a short walk down the stairs! There are stairs going into the unit as well as some to the upstairs bedroom. If you have trouble with stairs this unit is probably not for you. Look into one of the floor units.

My only complaint would be the lack of towel bars in the bathroom and half bath. Not sure why there aren't any. The whole booking process went well and we got our deposit back quickly. We won't hesitate to stay again.

Nice and clean townhouse right on the beach

  • 4 of 5

We were looking for a nice clean townhouse right on the beach so we wouldn't have to haul the kids very far. We had a great time. It is an upstairs unit with two stories so stairs were a slight pain but overall so worth it to be at the beach!

Our second year in a row...

  • 5 of 5

This townhouse on the beach is everything that we look for. The only complaint that I have is that the living room couch that was there last year was replaced by a less comfortable couch (not that I rent a place on the beach to sit on the couch - but just saying). We will be back again next year, and for years to come. In my view, this is the best part of Destin to be - between Whales Tail and Pompano Joes restaurants. It is also a short drive from the outlet malls, the Golds Gym we like to go to, and not far from Destin Commons either. My wife and I are already looking forward to next years stay at Sticks in the Sand!

Owner's Response: Thanks again for staying at Sticks in the Sand. Our furniture changes regularly due to wear and tear. Unfortunately the sofa you loved didn't hold up with the leather flaking off in less than a year. We had to replaced it with a more durable beach model. Look forward to seeing you again!

Great location right on the beach! Excellent for families.

  • 4 of 5

We spent over a week here in May and lived it. Slightly dated, but awesome views and access to the beach. Our only complaint were the stairs were hard on heels and toes and a little daunting with little ones. A quick walk to Pompano Joes and the Whales Tail for food options. Grill was awesome to have. Could not beat the location. Would definitely stay here again.
