About Marti Swift

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, Panama City Beach, 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!

Paradise Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

My family just returned from a week in Destin, staying in Marti Swift's lovely condo. Prior to our stay, Marti was very attentive and prompt in providing all details and information we needed. The condo – I don't even know where to begin ... From the moment we arrived, everything was simply perfect! Sterling Sands is right in the heart of Destin. The location to shopping, dining and attractions could not be better. We loved the size of Sterling Sands. It's modern and clean with a wonderful staff. From the moment we stepped into Marti's condo, we gasped with excitement. It is so lovely! The expansive view of the gulf was just breathtaking. The large wraparound balcony, and even a private balcony from one of the master suites were amazing. The condo is beautifully decorated and spotless. The bedrooms were all spacious and felt like heavenly retreats with beds that felt like soft clouds and enormous tubs with jets. We even looked for a tag on the sheets, to hopefully buy the same brand because they were so wonderful. We cooked family meals in the large kitchen and went home with no dirty laundry, thanks to a washer and dryer just off the kitchen. This condo is HUGE and GORGEOUS! First floor, corner was fantastic. Literally just steps away from the pool and beach. We enjoyed the added benefit of two beach chairs and umbrella set up each day. This is our favorite beach vacation and condo that we have ever had! We cannot rave enough about Marti's condo at Sterling Sands. It made for a true vacation that felt comfortable, yet luxurious. We will always treasure this vacation and a beautiful family memories we made there.

A Little Bit of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying at Sterling Sands since it was built in1995 on a regular basis and often two to four weeks at a time. Marti is an exceptional host and always takes excellent care of her guests. Her heart is in her home to minister to her guests by going above and beyond anything expected. I noticed the one star negative comments made by the guest in January, 2015. My family and I had just spent the month prior in Marti's home and did not experience any issue this guest mentioned. Indeed, there were no issues - zilch. Our plan is to spend as much time at Marti's place as God allows. It is our little bit of heaven.

Nice Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great spring break at this condo. First of all, Marti was great to work with. The thing we liked best about the condo was the amazing view, right from the living room! It was a little chilly when we were there so it was so nice to be able to sit inside, yet see the beautiful ocean from the living room and master bedroom. We loved that you can see the pool right from the balcony so our older kids could swim and we could easily check on them. The pool was heated and never too crowded. Access to the beach was perfect, and it was nice having the beach chair set-up the whole time we were there. Condo location is convenient. We were able to put all of the kids in the master lock-out and they loved feeling like they had their "own" apartment. I would recommend bringing a good knife or two if you plan to cook, and also bring beach towels.
