"Fabulous lake-view location, close to downtown and beaches."
Having stayed on the Briarwood estate several times, we thought this villa had a particularly good south-west facing pool area, with afternoon sunshine and a wide lakeside view. It's great for families, with little extras like beach furniture coming in very handy! Wi-fi worked well for several devices. Communication with both the UK owner and US agents was fantastic throughout.

"Relaxing stay in prime location"
Escaped from the winter, wind and rain in UK to sunny Florida. For some of the time we caught the cooling winds blowing from the frozen northern states which pegged temperatures slightly but still the sun shone! Property was on a pristine and secure gated community within easy reach of all amenities and had all the comforts of home. Very well equipped and comfortable. Would recommend pool heating in January! Beautiful aspect from the large pool area which overlooked a small lake with wildlife galore, including a small group of otters that regularly came to feed. Property was not overlooked and was quiet and private. Owner was friendly, helpful and responsive and our booking handled very efficiently and to our complete satisfaction. We had a lovely stay and would be happy to return again for a winter break.

"WONDERFUL STAY, LOVELY CLEAN HOME"
We enjoyed our stay in Naples very much. The house was large and clean and the pool area was an added bonus, especially with the views. The owner left an information booklet on various local attractions, shopping and beach areas which was helpful. The house provided all the amenities that your could possibly want.We hope to return again soon.

"Fabulous, safe location with plenty to do and beautiful scenery."
This Naples home was a fabulous fit for our family of 5. There was plenty of space which was well maintained, beautiful scenery all around, and a perfect location. We experienced a comfortable, secure stay while being able to explore Florida.
Lovely to hear that our beautiful home and its fabulous location met your holiday expectations, Lael. Looking forward to welcoming you back!

Thanks for your comments. I am pleased you enjoyed your stay at our home. This is certainly the message I received clearly from the positive emails we routinely exchanged at the end of your stay too. The last day of your stay was the first time you mentioned anything about the air conditioning giving me no time to try to resolve matters for you. The air conditioning didn't cope because you did not follow the very simple instructions and managed to freeze the unit. Our agents reported a flooded garage and the unit's temperature set far too low despite clear instructions positioned on the wall next to the thermostat when they visited the day after you left. No other guests have ignored the instructions before in the nine years we have been renting out our home. It seems reasonable to me that you should pay for the repair and generous of me to offer to share the cost in the circumstances. I have apologised for not contacting you about it sooner but suffering two family bereavements in five days in May meant that I was distracted temporarily. I am looking forward to helping all our future guests enjoy a fantastic holiday at our home in Naples. Simon

"Lovely holiday in Naples"
We travelled with our daughter and son-in-law and stayed 2 weeks in April 2013. We were pleasantly surprised at how large the villa was with an extensive pool area with enough sun loungers and dining area for the 4 of us. It was good that we didn't need the pool heating it was even pleasant for an early morning dip and the pool guys came every week to maintain it which was good. The villa was very well equipped and had plenty of towels and beach towels and also cooler boxes and beach chairs to use. The lay out was good as the main bedroom is on one side and the double and single rooms are on the other side of the villa. It is a peaceful location with a lovely lake view attracting lots of wild life.
Briarwood is a very nice gated community and is well situated for all Naples has to offer. The beach, 5th Avenue and 3rd Street South are about 10 minutes drive away and lots of bars and restaurants within easy reach. The beach is lovely for relaxing or for walking and there was always dolphins to be seen.
Lots of nice areas to visit and we also drove the 2 hours to Miami Coral Gables and caught the Big Bus Tour bus and toured Downtown Miami and the beach loop.
The free Wi-Fi was very much appreciated.
Simon the owner was very helpful in booking and with information provided and the deposit was refunded 5 weeks after our return. Would have no hesitation in booking this villa again.

"Florida in January"
The villa was in immaculate condition as the photographs show. It is on a very well kept and very quiet development and we felt quite at home. There is a well-appointed pool area where we could spend our time relaxing in the sun.
Facing west facing over the lake it has plenty of birds and wild life including ospreys and its own resident otters. The views from the pool area were complimented by some wonderful sunsets.
Naples has plenty to offer with plenty of amenities, excellent restaurants, supermarkets and shopping malls and miles of sandy beaches all within a ten minute drive.
Everglade City, Marco Island and Sanibel Island are all within easy reach and each good for a day sightseeing. We also found some excellent golf courses, the furthest out being no more than a 30 minute drive. A trip to Key West is a must but a stay in that area of at least one night or even two would be recommended.
All in all a place to be recommended and we will probably return.
