About Marti Swift

My family and I visited Destin in 2001 and fell in love with the white sandy beaches. Maravilla has been a tradition of our family for years. The rental busines has been a true blessing to each of us. It has allowed me to be a 'work at home' mom while raising our two kids and has given me the opportunity to meet many wonderful families from all over the United States.

We purchased our properties with two non-negotiable factors in mind: 1) Views! We would not compromise on being able to see the emerald waters of the gulf while relaxing on our balcony. We are from Kentucky and our vacations are all about seeing and enjoying the water. 2)Proximity to the beach and pool. As a family with young kids we wanted to be quick to and from our condo to the sand. Our goal was always less than a minute for either and we purchased our condo's accordingly.

As a result, our family enjoys truly relaxing vacations taking in the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. Regardless of where we are, the heart of Destin or Scenic Gulf Drive, our views don't change..the famous emerald water is only a glance away! Our family condo business is dear to us. We recognize how blessed we are and we cherish the memories!

Why Marti Swift chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

Purchasing a vacation home within driving distance to our home was important to us. It allows us to vacation often in our home away from home. The Gulf Coast's emerald waters were like no other place we had ever seen. The natural beauty of the beaches were the 'icing on the cake' for our purchase of our vacation home.

What makes this condo unique

Our kids have grown up at Maravilla. Our daughter learned to swim in the pool there. We have since purchased other properties as investiments. Maravilla remains our favorite, our children will not go anywhere else. The property offers great 'kids friendly' playing spaces. Maravilla's neighborhood community is perfect for riding bikes, skating, playing tag, getting a wiffle ball game up and just doing things kids love to do. Many complexes today only offer a parking lot and a beach to play on. We LOVE Maravilla!

Another GREAT Destin vacation!

Another great visit to the Maravilla......my first trip with my 2 year old "rescue" Ruby and she and I both loved the accomodations, view of the pool and of course enjoying our mornings watching the dolphin swim by!

The condo was perfect...clean....and well maintained.

The golf courses were in very good shape.....the outlet mall was wonderful and of course Pompano Joe's was awesome! Went to Niceville and ate at Giuseppi's on the Wharf and everyone needs to visit there!

Will return...as soon as possible!

Thanks for making some great memories!

Another perfect vacation at Maravilla!

  • 5 of 5

Our 5th visit to Maravilla and each time gets better. Condo is always clean, well stocked and beds are always comfortable. We love being steps away from the beach, the beach chair and umbrella set up and being able to bring our pets. The location is within walking distance to restaurants for all ages. Always a pleasure booking w Marti and we'll be back!

great week in Miramar beach!

  • 5 of 5

lovely condo! so clean and so well furnished. the ground of the complex were also immaculate. beautiful beach and having beach chairs waiting for us every day was very the condo. When we have rented condos in the past, there was usually a binder with local info. emergency numbers sample menus etc. there were no brochures or information on the area. We had a wonderful time though! it was nice to have our dog with us and everyone was so friendly.

Very nice 2 bed 2 bath

  • 5 of 5

We drove the coast from destin to Panama City and felt like for the money we found one of the best stays. Stones throw from the beach, hear the oceans and see them from the condo, comfy bed and nice TVs. Everything you need in a kitchen to boot. Located close to everything we needed and felt like the neighbors were upscale and friendly.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We went on a girls getaway from 9/9-9/13 and it felt just like home! We stayed in 2103 on the bottom floor and it was the most convenient apartment I have ever stayed in, the kitchen was very well equipped, the rooms were spotless and the location was amazing. The only thing that bothered me was there seemed to be a draining problem in the master bathrooms tub, but other than that it was all wonderful! Marti is a pleasure to work with, and she went above and beyond my expectations. Definitely will recommend to anyone and everyone who asks and will be staying here again!

Great Location, wonderful paradise

  • 4 of 5

We had a great location, very nice view, beautiful beach including dolphins show from our balcony , great Pet friendly community; The apartment has a very good size but decoration is really poor it has a lot of plastic plants including a palm tree that are dust catchers, so we had to clean and vacuum almost every day , we also notice that the vacuum probably had never been clean so it was full of dust and sand, we emptied it so finally it worked, also the kitchen was poorly equipped so next time you will have to take some of your tools to cooked your own way; the fans were also very dirty. Even though i will recommend it, and i will go back carrying my own things.
