Lakefront Luxury Home with Southwest facing Pool Close to Beaches

Bedrooms 4
Space 2,200 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 - 28 nights


About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, 8 Sleeps

This is a spacious waterfront luxury home close to all the amenities of sophisticated Naples. The main rooms have been devised to take full advantage of the lake views. The decor is plantation/colonial. Floors are tiled and plantation shutters add to the colonial feel.

Outside, the large free form pool overlooks the lake.

The location of this home is simply stunning. Facing southwest, the pool area attracts plenty of sunshine and the lanai, with its large tropical dining area, provides much needed shade! As you watch the sun set over the lake, you know this is what you came to Florida for!

Lovely big house right by the lake!

  • 3 of 5

Positives: A spacious, comfortable, quite well equipped house in a peaceful location. situated right by the lake which was great for spotting wildlife such as turtles, terrapins, an otter, and also a lot of squirrels an bird life to watch/listen to. The pool is a reasonable size to swim in. The outdoor dining area is very nice. The local manager kindly put some bread, milk, beers etc in the fridge for our late night arrival which was helpful. They also let us stay a couple of hours after check out time which was also helpful as we ha an evening flight home. There was a lot of info about things to do, places to visit such as Everglades, Swamp factory etc, plus many games etc for entertainment.

Negatives: A few minor issues such as the air con did not work properly, the floors (inside and out on the patio) did not seem very clean even when we arrived. We had asked and paid for the pool to be heated but this was not done before our arrival. We knew it would take while to warm up so asked for - and received (after 3 phone calls) - a refund for this. This meant the pool was very cold! But the biggest let down was the position of the patio and lanai. It says "facing south west and attracts plenty of sunshine". Well, it does not face south west, it is about 95% west and 5% north (we could tell this by sitting out there and then checked it with a compass!) This means that the sun is to the side of the patio in the afternoon, not facing it. There is also a huge tree which is many years older and bigger than it looks on the website and is now completely covering the south and west part of the lanai. The combined effect of these 2 facts is that the sun goes behind the tree around 2/3pm and does not ever come out the other side, sunset is behind the big tree to the west. So, no sunshine to sit in after about 2.30 and difficult to see the sunset, 2 of the main reasons we chose this particular house!!

We got round this by using the nearby (10/15 minute walk) communal pool which was wonderful, large, warm, and with comfortable (much newer) loungers still in the sun! However, we were very disappointed with the tree shading so much of the sun from our patio in the afternoons, we mentioned this to the local manager and she did say about speaking to the owners about trimming the tree but obviously nothing happened during our time there. If they don't do something soon the tree will completely cover the lanai in a couple of years and make it very dark!

Owner's Response: Delighted you enjoyed your stay and I am happy to answer some of your concerns. That tree has indeed shaded some of the sunshine, you will be pleased to know it has now been cut entirely back so the pool area once again gets plenty of sunshine! Re the floors, they are always cleaned to the highest standards. We had just had the home completely repainted so perhaps some dust remained. As you know, we were happy to reclean them immediately. And re pool heat, as you know I refunded it immediately on request, you said you didnt want it because the pool was warm enough without it so I dont quite understand why you found the pool cold. Hope this helps!

Fantastic House & Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed on Briarwood many times, but this was one of the best properties. Huge villa, great pool, extremely well stocked (linen, utensils, beach gear etc). The owner and property manager were a joy to deal with and all communication was seamless. The location of Briarwood is perfect for Naples, just a short drive (or Uber is you want to make the most of the local Happy Hours!). I would highly recommend this property to anyone visiting Naples.

Peaceful escape

  • 5 of 5

This elegant house is the perfect chill out zone. Located on the smart and secure gated estate of Briarwood community. The interior is very well appointed and has a picturesque lake view from the tranquil patio area. A very relaxing setting and just a short drive to local beaches and attractions plus the elegant shops and restaurants of

5th Avenue . I would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking to unwind and enjoy a stress free break in a very convenient location.

Beautiful pool home in great location.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed easy living in this beautiful pool home close to all that Naples has to offer. Our family had a great stay in this well equipped, clean and comfortable home with a great pool situated to enjoy privacy and beautiful sunsets over the lake. My kids loved riding the bikes provided up to the community tennis, volleyball and basketball courts and 2 community pools. There are great restaurants, shopping and beautiful beaches nearby as well as the wonderful Naples Zoo, Nature Conservancy, water park and fun adventures such as tour boat and air boat rides. We look forward to staying in this home again soon!

Luxury & relaxation

  • 5 of 5

A gorgeous rental villa equipped with everything you need for a Naples holiday. My family stayed over Easter 2014 (not 2915 as shown) & thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and the beautiful home. The outlook is beautiful, the pool area & outside dining second to none and the facilities in the home simply excellent. So much so, in fact, that we made sure we booked another one of Noelle's properties again in 2015. Highly recommended if you're looking for a touch of luxury!

Beautiful home, gorgeous sunsets!

  • 5 of 5

This is an extremely clean and well maintained home. (It was our second vacation here). The pool overlooking the lake is very pretty and the sunsets are gorgeous. We love that the house is entirely tiled versus carpeting and that the decor is very neutral. It is very well equipped making you feel right at home. Briarwood is a lovely community, very pretty and well maintained. We also loved that we can bring our dog. We can't wait to return next year!
