              • Tax Rate 11.5%


              We offer two payment options. The first is a multiple payment plan where we usually set-up 4 to 5 or more payments (there are no extra fees or charges applied) and you can make payments between the time you reserved and be fully paid-up prior to your arrival. The second option is a "discount" for paying in full at time of reservation.

              Note that we do not charge for Security Deposits - we are on the "honor system". There are NO additional fees or deposits for pets. We have a simple reservation form that we email you to confirm your stay and we accept credit cards, debit cards, personal and company checks.

              Please wait... Travel with confidence

              Pay with an approved method (credit card, check, or bank transfer) to protect your payment up to $1,000. Before making a payment always call the owner at the number listed on our website, and never use instant money transfer services such as Western Union and MoneyGram.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2013

              About the owner: We have been coming to the Bradenton / Anna Maria Island for several years now and simply love the area. We had rented before and finally decided we wanted our own vacation home. So we bought a nice house, fixed it up, installed a pool, etc. and it turned out beautifully. We named it Charli's Retreat after our dog, Charli who is an 8 year old female Brittany that is very spoiled ! Anyway, please let us know if you need any further information about the home and we hope you plan to stay with us for your next Florida vacation !

              Why the Owner Chose Other Bradenton Properties:
              Our vacation home is centrally located. It is easy to get to the Island beaches, close to numerous restaurants, shopping, and more. It is our own little piece of Paradise !

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              You will be amazed at how quiet and nice the neighborhood is - we have this huge back yard and the house is fully outfitted. Just bring your clothes !
