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.

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.
