About Maria Poole

about maria poole.png

I am a passionate travel planner and Specialist in the Art of Travel. Even though I am a designer by trade, I am a traveler at heart. When I’m not traveling the globe, I reside in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL with my husband Mike and my 3 wonderful children. I’m a mom, wander lusting foodie, wine lover, an adventurer, and a joyful purveyor of travel.

From an early age, I knew I was meant to see the world. I spent years traveling the globe and reporting back to my friends, making me a trusted tastemaker in the luxury market.

I’ve traveled extensively to over 20 countries bringing back experiences and knowledge of the destination while providing extensive experience to cultivate trips of a lifetime for my clients all over the world.

More than just a travel advisor, I am a member of Virtuoso, a by-invitation-only luxury travel network comprised of elite travel consultants giving me access to the best suppliers and hoteliers, servicing all aspects of travel around the globe.

From simple hotel bookings to trips of a lifetime!

My philosophy is simple: Perfectly seamless, stylish trips and expertise that provides the most wonderful experiences imaginable.
