(Listing Note... I have multiple almost identical 2 bedroom properties listed on VRBO so if your dates are not available try these Listings #586496, #639885, #838156, #586497. I also receive multiple inquires on the same day and travel for a living so please click the "SEND A MESSAGE" button to confirm availability and price for your dates instead of the "Request To Book" button otherwise our listings get dropped in the search rankings for declining your request and VRBO puts a hold on your payment amount that takes 48 hours to clear. )

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 Scenic Gulf Drive East

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.

Relaxation at it's best!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently stayed in this unit for a second time! I cannot express enough how awesome this unit is! It is clean! It is beautiful! It is stocked with everything you need! The kitchen has everything you need to cook your meals right there! We spent 7 days here and only went out to eat a few times! Location is perfect! The water was so clear that you could walk out hip deep and still see your feet! Pompano Joe's is a stones throw away! I have 2 son's ages 10 and 6. They have the time of their life on this beach! Flying kites! Swimming in the ocean! Hunting for crabs after dark! If you are looking for a great place to take your family for a relaxing vacation! This is the spot! We are already planning our next trip to Destin! Thank you Slatton's for providing such a perfect getaway spot for my family!!!

The condo was perfect for our family of 6. Very cozy, comfortable and had everything we needed . You walk out the door and you are on the beach! Beautiful white sand and NICE location. Corresponded with the owner and the manager several times and they were always very nice and quick to respond. Loved our stay!

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!

Beautiful location right on the beach

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Sticks in the Sand, easy to get to and traffic was not as crazy as southern Florida. Stairs were a little steep for two seniors in their 70's.

Unit was non-smoking, our only complaint was that the units on either side of us were not. Sitting out on the deck or even having the doors open was spoiled a bit by smokers next to us. Weather was great and loved the white sand and emerald coast!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review. We are sorry we do not own the other units next to us and could not control their smoking. If you book in our other building we own an 2 side by side units and could control 1 side of the unit? The stairs are a challenge as Townhomes go straight up so we try to help with double railings on both sides. We look forward to seeing you next time at Sticks in the Sand.

Right on the beach! Beautiful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

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.
