About Charlie Grossman

My name is Charlie Grossman I have owned for several years in Maravilla. Prior to owning this home I owned a condo unit in Building 1. I spend my summer months in Belfast Maine and in Maravilla is my full time residence from November through April. I have always enjoyed the quiet, family atmosphere of the Maravilla Beachfront community. And my grandchildren love it here too when they visit. Hope you will too when you visit soon.

Charlie Grossman purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Charlie Grossman chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

Since this is my home for 6 month a year, I strive to keep this cottage in excellent condition, well equipped and up to date.

What makes this cottage unique

Always well stocked with paper goods, cleaning supplies and all the fixings for coffee or tea. Reserved chairs and umbrella set at the beach are provided for my guests. The cottage is also pet friendly with no additional charges for pets. The furnishings and appliances are all in excellent condition and there are 3 flat screen TVs, each with satellite service and DVDs. There is WiFi in the home.

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

First time staying at Sand Castle Cottage but won't be the last. This house is perfect for a family with kids and dogs. I was so happy that we were able to bring our fur babies with us and so were they. Sand Castle has everything you need from beach toys and wagon to coffee in the morning. The owner Charles Grossman is very nice to work with. He will answer any questions you may have and easy to reach should a problem come up. I have already been telling my family and friends about this vacation rental. Planning on booking Sand Castle Cottage next year for our vacation. Thank you Charlie for sharing your Florida home.

Wonderful cottage and just a short walk to the beach.

  • 4 of 5

My family and I recently stayed at this wonderful cottage for an entire week. The cottage had EVERYTHING we needed.......extra sheets and pillows, all cooking utensils, and plenty of beach toys which came in handy including the wonderful wagon!! The pool and basketball court were used daily. The bikes were also a plus as some of us went on daily bike rides to pompano joes for their wonderful gumbo. We did have some problems with the air conditioning but Mr. Charlie responded immediately and had someone out within a few hours to fix it. You can take a short walk to the beach or move your vehicle up and walk the last few steps to the beach. The pool was great and never over crowded. We loved our stay and would stay here again when we decide to go back. I highly recommend this to anyone especially families travelling with kids!

Great Home for a Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Sandcastle Cottage was a great getaway for me and my family. The neighborhood was very quite and friendly. Most of all I was very happy that the owner welcomes pets. My dog enjoyed the vacation just as much as anyone!

Highly recommended, you won't be disappointed!

Great cottage with all the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

The Sandcastle Cottage exceeded our expectations for the second year in a row. This house is spacious and comfortable. We especially enjoyed the bikes and beach toys available to us while we were there. The beds are comfortable and there is plenty of space to spread out and give everyone their "space" as needed.

Very private culdasac

  • 5 of 5

All the comforts of home. House was very clean and everything was in excellent working order. Will definitely be back next year. Owner was very approachable and got back with us everytime we had a question.

Home is located on a culdasac which was super quiet.

They do not allow trailers so if you bring your golfcart put it in the back of your truck if possible. If not, the garage can hold a small 6x8 that you will need to store out of sight.
