Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: We have been visiting the Sarasota/Bradenton area for many years now and really 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 a 10 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 !
