Our beautiful home which has lake views to the rear has two master en-suite bedrooms, both with king size beds and which open onto the pool and sun-terrace. The lounge and dining room is open-plan with a large four section sliding door which opens onto the pool and lanai area. There are two more bedrooms and another bathroom conveniently placed between them. The lounge and all four bedrooms have cable television. The home has full air/conditioning and fans in each room.
My name is Terry and I reside in Keynsham, south west England. I am a retired Fire Officer and now enjoy spending time with my children and grandchildren as well as gardening which is my other favourite past time. I am widely travelled especially in the UK, France and Spain. But now I try to spend 4 x months of the year in beautiful, Naples, Florida after discovering it back in 2000!
Terry Condon purchased this villa in 2003
I first holidayed in Naples in 2000 when my family and I enjoyed a holiday here on Briarwood, Naples after a chaotic 2 x weeks in Disneyworld, Orlando. We instantly fell in love with the location and all that Naples and the surrounding area has to offer.
We had the villa improved from the original specification by enlarging the second bedroom by an additional 6'' and giving it it's own ensuite facilities which includes a walk in shower. We also had the pool extended to 30'' and also increased the size of the sun terrace. Three out of the four bedrooms have king size beds therefore the home has 3 x king size ensuite bedrooms in different wings of the home.
At night the pool area is illuminated by outside lights and a special pool lighting system whereby the pool slowly changes colours. The pool area also benefits from complete privacy as there are no villas on the far side of the lake.
My wife and I got married in Naples and chose to stay in a villa with our friends. After trawling through lots of adverts we chose this villa because it looked good in the pictures and the owner was very responsive and helpful when we emailed him.
We were not disapointed.
The villa is in beautiful condition and the pictures do not do it justice. It realy was a home from home with all the creature comforts you require.
The owners were a pleasure to deal with and were extremely helpful in answering our questions and recomending places to go and things to see.
When we arrived I had lost my printout with the details for getting into the villa. I had to call the owners back in the UK in the middle of the night. They were very understanding and very friendly even though I must have woken them up.
The added touches such as fishing rods, swimming pool toys and of course golf clubs was very welcome. I simply can't wait to go back again next year!

We always like to think a trouble free holiday is all anyone can ask for but so many people get it wrong! Terry on the other hand, when contacted, sorted one simple problem out efficiently and quickly and therefore we were able to have a nice relaxing break in the villa for two untroubled weeks! The villa itself had a delightful view with an amazing pool and every single thought had been taken to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The villa felt very secure in a gated community where you receive a barcode on your car for the duration of the stay that allows you entrance and exit with the minimum of inconvenience! The restaurants were varied if you have a family we would suggest the Cheesecake Factory if you require a little more as a couple/family then I would suggest Downtown Naples and a fantastic place called Bistro 821 where the service was great and the food excellent, however do order starters and deserts to share as portions are very large!!! There are numerous activities from the golden beaches, to the Everglades and boat and plane trips. If you require a little retail therapy then the Miromar Outlet will sustain you for many hours! The villa experience was superb and I would be delighted to recommend anybody to stay there for their trip to Naples! Thanks Terry for allowing us to stay in your beautiful villa we will treasure the memories!
As the beaches stretch none stop from Marco Island to Fort Myers beach and beyond you will find you don't have to travel any distance to find the most glorious beaches of sugar white sand imaginable and they are just a short drive from the villa. Naples beach is approximately 7/10 minutes drive with all the others just a few more minutes away.
The nearest airports are Fort Myers just 30 minutes up the I75
Miami (2 hours) and Tampa (3 hours).
It is only a short 7/10 minutes drive to the beaches, marina, shops and restaurants of 5th Avenue in 'Olde Naples'.
It is only a 2 minute drive to the nearest supermarket (Publix), the Pharmacy (Walgreens) and the banks. Briarwood has a community area with two large swimming pools (at least one is heated in the winter months). 2 tennis courts, a volleyball court all of which are available to our visitors whilst they are on holiday.
