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 New Hampshire and in Maravilla as 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 cable service and DVDs. There is WiFi in the home.

Nice peaceful vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this cottage a few times now and we enjoy our stay every time. Nice area to stay with the private beach access. We wished we could have stayed longer. Thanks Mr. Charlie!

Very Good!

  • 4 of 5

Could use some attention and upgrading. The master bed was badly sloping and the pillows were well worn and soiled. There were supposed to be 6 beach towels, but only 4 were present. The vacuum cleaner switch didn't stay on. Living room furniture appeared to be new and was very comfortable. Very good Bose sound system. TV and internet worked well. Big screen TV and TV's in the bedrooms! Short walk to the beach.More than enough basic supplies like paper plates, napkins,etc. and cooking supplies. Bicycles old and one not usable due to chain being off. Musty smell in garage. Don't mean to sound negative, but just lacking attention to details. Cleaning person could do a better job--laminate flooring needed a good cleaning. Overall for a beach rental we were very pleased.

Great property and location! We will be back!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our trip to Maravilla. The house was perfect--great layout, plenty of space for our 4 person family and a well equipped kitchen for meals at "home". The location was perfect also. Nice safe neighborhood with sidewalks for the kids to ride bikes. Also made for a very easy walk or bike to the pools and beach. We loved this property and look forward to visiting again!

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!

Car: not necessary

Our cottage is located on a cul- de -sac , with minimal traffic and noise, you are only a short walk to the private beach. Maravilla offers family oriented amenities: two pools, hot tub, fitness room, basketball area, shuffleboard, tennis courts, club house for gatherings, all within a 33 acre resort community. This provides a lot of green space for walking your pet and sidewalks for the kids to ride their bikes. Our cottage is backed by a nature area, great if you have a pet . The back patio is equipped with a gas grill, and plenty of seating.
