About Terry Condon
My name is Terry Condon and I live in the South West of England. I am retired now but was a Senior Fire Officer for 30 years! I first holidayed in Naples, Florida in 2000 with my children and grandchildren when we instantly knew we wanted to purchase our own home in what in our opinion is one of the most wonderful places in the World! We take extreme pride in our home and have had it decorated and keep it maintained to the highest standard and we hope you enjoy it!
Terry Condon purchased this Villa in 2003
Why Terry Condon chose Naples
When I saw this plot I knew instantly it was the perfect location to have a house built with wonderful south west views over the lake making it the perfect place to watch the sunset on an evening! 'Briarwood' is an upmarket 24 hour gated community located only a short 5/10 minutes drive to the wonderful beaches, lovely waterfront restaurants and great shopping. This really is the perfect location to spend your holiday in Naples! Supermarkets and Petrol Stations are only a few minutes drive away.
What makes this Villa unique
When having our home built I made various changes to the original plans. I know that when holidaying with family and friends only one couple gets to have the Master bedroom leaving others disappointed and so that's why I had the second bedroom extended by a further 6 ft and one of the bathrooms altered to become an ensuite - hence why my home boasts 2 x Master Suites giving complete privacy. I also had the standard 24 ft private swimming pool extended to 30 ft allowing you enough room to swim comfortably. These small changes make my home quite unique and let's not forget the wonderful views over the lake making it the perfect place to sit back and enjoy the sunset!

From sunrise to sunset ... relaxing luxury.
This was our third stay in Sunset Villa and our seventh overall with Terry since 2010.
We have stayed with other owners on Briarwood but would always come back to Terry if available.
This visit it clicked, when walking by the Inn on the Fifth, why we return. The villa is simply better. It has the quality expected of a high end luxury 5* hotel but with more space and privacy. And an owner who genuinely wants the best for his guest and is always available to you.
When I book I know a relaxing vacation base is guaranteed.
The villa is even better than its accurate description as it’s regularly updated. On this visit the lounge had its colour theme changed to a relaxing blue. And a recent 55” Samsung TV stood on a new display cabinet with just the right number of ornaments without being chintzy.
Briarwood does not change.
It remains a beautiful peaceful haven with Royal Palm lined streets and immaculately maintained surroundings.
It’s worth a stroll in the cool of the day to wow at some even more amazing villas and gardens.
The security gated subdivision hardly seems needed in this area but is reassuring.
Naples has become busier since our first visit but It retains its cool sedate upmarket image.
It must be the only Florida town with a flyover with ornate lamps astride balustrades that seem to be freshly painted each visit.
It takes just a 10 – 15 mins drive to reach Lowdermilk Park or Naples Pier and a feel of the Caribbean.
Or 30 mins takes you to Delnor-Wigigns State Park, a park with beautiful sands where you can stroll watching ospreys and pelicans fishing early morning.
Wildlife spotting this year included a manatee off Naples beach and the regular dolphins darting around the pier.
And the only crime spotted in Naples was a black bird burying its beak into a sunbathers bag and flying off with a sandwich on Naples beach.
Writing this I look at my memory of a wonderful relaxing holiday hanging on my study wall at home

Great place to stay!
First of all I would thank Terry for the great place we could stay during our holiday. It is located in a super neighborhood and the distance to beach and interstate is very good.
The house in all was very clean and you have all the amenities you need there. The pool with the view on the lake is great.
Also the customer service was very good. If we had to question something about the house there was an immediate answer from Terry.
I would definitly recommend this property to everybody who wants to have a great time in Naples.
Lovely, comfortable home
We had a really lovely holiday at Sunset Villa. We have stayed at Briarwood many times and have stayed previously at Terry's other villa a couple of years ago. Sunset villa is beautifully clean and well maintained and is well stocked and equipped throughout. The thoughtful touches like the golf clubs and bikes in the garage, along with a further fridge for all the drinks were much appreciated. The bedrooms were all a good size and the beds and linens very comfortable. The outdoor area is well equipped with a lovely BBQ and plenty of loungers and chairs and even pool floaties! The pool is a good size, we paid to have the heating on and it was well worth it. It meant we could use it all the time we were there. Briarwood is a lovely development, very secure and immaculately maintained and in a good location in Naples. It is not far at all to the shops, beach and 5th Avenue area. Terry is a perfect owner to correspond with, he comes back to all queries in super quick time and is very helpful all round. We will definitely book again, providing he has space for us! A great holiday as usual.
Many thanks for your review, in this day and age it's very important our guests give good feed back so future guests can feel more relaxed when reserving a home in which they're about to reserve. You know only to well when you decide to return to Naples I'll be there to make your holiday go that little bit more smoothly. Once again many thanks for your review.
Beautiful villa in stunning setting
We have stayed at a number of villas in Briarwood and this villa is excellent. The layout is perfect and works well offering 2 master suites and 3 separate bedroom areas for larger parties. The over sized pool is a joy and the outlook over the lake is truly spectacular, we spent a lot of time outside enjoying swimming, sunbathing and meals.
Terry was very helpful and always quick to respond.
We really hope to return again in the near future and highly recommend this accommodation.
Thank you Melanie for your kind words. It was a pleasure to host you and I hope to welcome you back in the future should you revisit Naples.
Perfect villa in Briarwood
Sunset Villa is a very high standard accomadation.It is the 3rd time we have rented this villa and would highly recommend to anyway. The view from the villa is fab and loved the evenings by the wonderfull pool and saw otters turtles and birds on the lake also fab sunsets.Terry the owner is always available for any issues that may happen and response is very quick .Will defiantly book this villa when we return to Naples again.
Beautiful, spacious villa
We stayed with various family members flitting in and out through May 2015. The villa was exactly as described, well maintained and beautifully furnished. Terry the owner was staying nearby and did everything he could to make our stay as comfortable as possible.
The location is perfect with a view over the lake toward the sunset in a very well kept community development. The location was exceptionally quiet with no traffic noise, but it was only 10-15 minutes' drive to downtown Naples and the beaches and it was very convenient for all the nearby attractions.
We shall definitely stay again stay again.
