Total relaxation

  • 5 of 5

This home was beautiful and well furnished and our 8 week stay was so relaxing. The color scheme induced a feeling of serenity. The pool was warm and wonderful! There was not very much we needed help with, but the property managers Mark and Mary Ann were immediately responsive if we needed anything, and very welcoming and kind. Neighborhood felt very safe, and Is beautifully landscaped. Great restaurants in Naples and beautiful beach area. Our only regret is that the home is not available to us for next year's dates! It books quickly!

Perfect vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This was our best vacation rental! The home was perfect for our needs and was exactly the way it was described. The home was clean and well stocked (although we added to the basics with some extra laundry detergent, napkins, etc. as we expected) and we were able to cook great dinners in the kitchen and on the grill. The pool was at a perfect temperature and the neighborhood was lovely. It was only 15 minutes to the pier which has a great beach and only about 5 minutes to the zoo. It is a gated community.... and very well maintained.

The best part of the house... the neighbor next door. They take care of the house on a daily basis and left a lovely note assuring us that everything was in working order for our arrival - which it was. We did have a small issue with the air conditioner. He arrived to take a look within 5 minutes and had a service man at the house within a couple of hours. All in all - what could have been an issue (it was oddly hot in FL for December) was absolutely not and was resolved so quickly. The only reason it deserves mentioning was it was handled so well!

We are a family with 4 adults and 2 small children. There was plenty of space and sleeping arrangements worked perfectly. The house is a single level - so that was nice with a 19 month old. If you have small children - just be aware of the pool. There is a sliding door to the deck. We were very careful to keep it locked and it is too difficult for the kids to open on their own so we felt very secure.

Working with the owners to book the house was easy. Communications were clear and I had all my questions answered quickly. The rental agreement is well written and with VRBO - the process to book was simple. This was one of the easiest trips I've planned! And very relaxing once we arrived!

Lovely Spacious Home

This home is a lovely property. Plenty of space and very well furnished. It was very convenient getting in and out of the development. I would rent this home again!

Great Villa in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Clean, well maintained property, great Wifi, lovely pool. All maintenance people (pool/garden maintenance) very friendly and helpful. This villa is perfectly located for all the attractions, shopping, Malls, the beach, 5th Ave. All are no more than 10 minutes away. Loads of helpful information in the villa, and the use of the bikes was a wonderful way of starting the day and working up an appetite riding around Briarwood before breakfast. Have previously stayed on Briarwood, but made the mistake 2 years ago of renting on the Lely Estate, which is 10 miles out from the Naples Centre. Naples Bay Resort hire out powerboats,(across the bridge from Tin City) bit expensive ($293 for the day plus fuel (circa$60)), but good value for money :can seat up to 10 adults, but fantastic fun, and great value for a full day out seeing the wildlife, the millionaires properties, stopping off for some food, and driving the boat up onto the beach to just laze in the warm water and sample a beer for a few hours.

Owner's Response: Hi Some other boat rentals we have used are Brookside Marina and Isle of Capri Marina - this one especially is in the heart of where you want to be so can do so much more with your half day rental!

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our repeat visit to this beautiful home. Although we had a few difficulties with appliances, the property manager next door, Mark, couldn't have been more helpful! Future renters will have a brand new pool heater, garbage disposal, and dishwasher! Thanks for a great stay; we will be back.
