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.

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.

Nice Stay in Destin

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was a dream. The location was perfect to many great restaurants, shopping etc. Having the garage entry was nice, made it easy to store beach stuff. Beds were comfy, kitchen was well stocked including cold water in fridge on arrival. Even had central area to set up your computer or plug in your phones. The beach was beautiful and easy to get to by parking in the free parking area across the street. Evening walks around the area were made easy with the side walks. Very quite area. Only complaint was the air conditioning could not keep up with the heat, and as someone else mentioned by mid afternoon it would get to 80 in the house. The owner did send someone out on Labor Day weekend to check it, but the unit getting tired. We loved the place and will be back.

Great House in great location!

  • 5 of 5

Sandcastle Cottage is a very nice house with a great layout and everything you need is already there. Loved the cul-de-sac location which was very quiet while being close to all the shopping, restaurants, and entertainment this area has to offer. Easy access to the beach in gated community which was a plus. We enjoyed the backyard in the evening and were very happy to have our two Maltese with us as well. We have stayed at many properties in Florida over the years and this was definitely one of our favorites. Highly recommend and can't wait to go back!
