About Beverly and John

Both of us were both born and raised in the midwest. We love the lifestyle in the Sarasota/Venice area. We are very active and love to sail on our kayak, dance, read, walk, eat healthy, garden and enjoy our dog, an Irish Setter. We live nearby, and we will help you in any ways that we can.

We are both Realtors with RE/MAX so if you are interested in investing in this area let us know. We have already helped some of our people that inquired about renting to buy a place of their own and they are delighted.

Beverly and John purchased this house in 2002

Why Beverly and John chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

We are thrilled to share our newly renovated home with you. We love all that Florida has to offer and especially this charming area called Nokomis, which is located between Venice and Sarasota on the gulf coast. Venice is a charming town with shops, restaurants, theater, live music and an interesting history. Sarasota is just 15 minutes north and has so much to offer – Ringling Museum, Selby Gardens, St. Armand’s Circle, Sarasota Car Museum, Mote Marine, Big Cat Habitat, Siesta Key and Siesta Village with bars and nightlife, theaters, galleries, restaurants, opera, dinner cruises or a cruise on LaBarge. We even have Costco and Trader Joes.

You will simply love this location which just happens to be just 5 minutes to Nokomis beach. The sunsets are always sensational however on Wednesdays and Saturdays be sure to join everyone on the beach for the Drum Circle. About an hour before sunset, the drums begin...you'll find everyone enjoying themselves, dancing, dining, laughing, playing...just embracing the moment. Bring a glass of wine, maybe even a drum... it is an amazing and memorable experience. A few miles south is Venice Beach with it’s own atmosphere – it is the sharks tooth capital of the world. People come from all over to look for and collect the shark’s teeth that cover the shoreline. You will find live music, yoga on the beach and many fun activities.

Further up the road is world famous Siesta Beach with it’s white, quartz sand. Our beaches are clean with public access and free parking. Just imagine the smell of SALT AIR…SAND between your toes….and the SUN on your face. Does this put a smile on your face?

What makes this house unique

This home is adjacent to Oscar Scherer State Park – hence the name – Parkside. In the park you can rent canoes and kayaks or there are several kayak rental places nearby. The Legacy Trail bike path is another fun way to enjoy our wonderful weather while getting some exercise.

This quiet neighborhood is ideal for walkers. Get up early and catch the fabulous colors of the sunrise or walk whenever you choose.

Three major airports are easily accessible – Sarasota, Tampa and Fort Myers. I-75 is also nearby so you are just one hour to Tampa with Busch Gardens and Adventure Island and two hours to all of the Orlando attractions including Disney.

Life is good here – we have swaying palms, extraordinary shopping, world class restaurants, sparkling clean beaches, premier tennis, boating, fishing, every water sport imaginable, farmers markets, championship golf courses, theater, ballet, opera, art galleries, museums, abundant inland waterways, glittering Gulf of Mexico with frolicking dolphins, year-round cultural calendar, excellent school systems, high quality health care systems, gorgeous sunsets, oranges fresh from the tree, sunshine, warmth, fun and friendly people...

Come and enjoy this wonderful, tropical lifestyle on your vacation. We live nearby and we will do everything we can to make it memorable (in a good way) for you!

There is no smoking permitted anywhere on the property, inside or outside.

Lovely vacation home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this lovely home for a month and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The house was well stocked with everything we could need while we were there, and the owners are very accommodating and responsive to questions or requests. We particularly enjoyed the back patio and the huge screened-in lanai, as well as sitting out on the front porch. The home is located in a quiet neighborhood with lots of friendly residents. We would highly recommend this home and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again in the future. Thank you.

Very comfortable property

  • 5 of 5

Our month-long stay was very comfortable - the house has everything one could need, including beach furniture and bikes which we used almost daily. Beverly and John were immediately responsive when we had questions or small issues to be dealt with, which was most appreciated. The house is completely and newly furnished with everything one could need, and the backyard has a quiet view with lots butterflies and borders a state park. The location is very convenient to Venice and Sarasota and is in a nice quiet neighborhood. We really enjoyed our visit and highly recommend this property.

Parkside in Nokomis

  • 5 of 5

We definitely enjoyed our stay at Parkside for the Month of March. What a joy it was to relax on the screened-in porch watching the butterflies and birds. Many birds stopped by to take a dip in the birdbath daily. The home was very clean and well-furnished. We had a great time using the 2 bicycles riding around the safe and beautiful neighborhood. The location was excellent for early morning jogs and evening walks. So much to see and enjoy. Just wish that the home was available for next March. Thank you Beverly and John for everything. You are the best!!!

Home from home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful fortnight at Parkside. Beverley and John could not have been more helpful, all emails answered promptly. The property was spotless and exceptionally well equipped with everything we wanted and more besides, everything of a high quality. It was ideally situated between Venice and Sarasota, two towns we love. The state park at the end of the garden (lots of cycling and walking trails, bikes provided by Beverley and John) was a bonus giving us peace and seclusion although we still had easy access to major roads and motorways. We would certainly recommend this holiday home and will be thinking seriously about returning again ourselves.

Great location, great vacation home

We were the first renters of Parkside, and John and Beverly have a gem on their hands. Quiet and peaceful area and super convenient to the beaches and I-75.

The house has everything you will need for your stay and more. I cant recommend it more.
