About Beverley Smith

Bev has been a Florida resident for 40 year. They both love the area, know it well and are happy to share their knowledge with travelers to our sunny state. Len, inventor of The Tundra Buggy, resided in Manitoba Canada most of his life. He used his invention to take many people on expeditions to view and photograph Polar Bears. Bev is one of the founders and the current VP/Treasurer for Everglades Angels Dog Rescue, an all volunteer charity that rehabilitates and rehomes badly abused dogs dumped in the Everglades.

Beverley Smith purchased this apartment in 2000

Why Beverley Smith chose Palmetto

It is old world Florida, the perfect place to relax, unwind and forget the rest of this crazy world. Very little traffic on the island, aside from some happy travelers on golf carts. You can do as you please, read a good book, enjoy the sunset, watch the dolphins drift by or catch some fish. Excellent shopping, restaurants, bars, activities of all kinds just a short distance off the island.

What makes this apartment unique

This property is a total of 2 acres with beautiful 100 yr old oak trees, quiet surroundings, beautiful views of the mouth of the Manatee River and Tampa Bay, island living at its best.

Waterfront Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This was our first winter in Florida and we made the right choice in accommodations. This large, ground floor apartment offered many amenities from access to a large backyard with views of the Manatee River, a large dock for fishing, a sandy private beach, and the private Tiki bar. Situated in a quiet neighborhood on Snead Island but close to many attractions, Tampa Airport, St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Sarasota, and much more. For those that like to spend time walking or biking on nature trails, Emerson Point Reserve is just around the corner. Bev and Len were the ultimate hosts, making us very comfortable, spending cocktail hour with us on the dock watching the sunset. They were attentive to any needs we may require. Our fur baby loved the large yard, chasing squirrels, cooling off in the river and sleeping on the dock. What a wonderful two month stay we had at this comfortable apartment....highly recommended.

Awesome 3 month stay!

  • 5 of 5

Ground floor apartment is nicely furnished and well maintained. I stayed with my Two Giant Schnauzers and Mini Schnauzer and had a fantastic time! Owners are on site and cater to any need that may arise. Great access to their private beach, private Tiki bar, huge yard. Very dog friendly! However, please don't mess it up for us that love this place by bringing a destructive, bad behaved dog(s) or human! The owners are GREAT hosts and made me feel right at home. I highly recommend this property.
