Our home was built and furnished for our family and is now offered as a rental. We are now sharing our love of this home with others. As a Master Gardener, I lovingly chose the beautiful and mature lush landscaping that surrounds our home. Since we have a home in the North, we wanted our Briarwood home to reflect Old World Florida style so we chose yellow for the stucco exterior with white trim.
The interior of our home offers a vaulted ceiling in the livingroom. There is a separate formal diningroom, completely equipped open kitchen with granite counters and eat in breakfast area. The Master bedroom has a new King sized bed, walk in closet and warm hardwood floors. There is an attached bathroom that has a walk in shower, soaking tub and double vanities.
Guest bedrooms are located on the opposite side of the house and have their own access to the pool area. The second bedroom has a Queen sized four poster bed and large closet. An elegant bathroom with tub and shower separate the guest bedrooms. The third bedroom has Twin sized beds and hardwood floors. The third bedroom overlooks the pool and extended patio.
Because of our love of Chinoiserie influence you will see it in many of the rooms. The livingroom has a beautiful Chinoiserie breakfront. The diningroom furniture is rosewood and also has a Chinoiserie style. The guest bathroom has a custom made shower curtain and matching wallpaper that reflects the same influence.
The third bedroom reflects a tropical feel with the wallpaper, matching valences and rattan/wicker twin beds.
Our large private pool is heated with solar or electric power. We chose the building site we did as the pool faces much desired Southern exposure which means it is in the sun all day. We enlarged the pool area which accommodates 4 chaise lounges and several seating areas. The pool also faces a large lake and nature preserve which provides total privacy. You can watch the birds enjoying the tranquility of the lake or fish for their food. The lanai is our favorite area for entertaining particularly since the glass sliding doors in the livingroom pocket back and expose the room to the pool area. The entire lanai is screened. There is a gas grill on the patio as well.
Our private gated community of Briarwood has a clubhouse, community pool, children's play area and tennis courts.
Pets are welcome with prior approval. If approved, all pets must be on monthly flea preventative.
Our home is a Non Smoking home.
There is free internet and WiFi. There are also televisions in all of the bedrooms as well as the living room.
There is a tourist tax, departure cleaning fee, refundable security deposit if no damage is done and a refundable $300 pet deposit which is also refundable if no damage is done. The Briarwood Property Owners Association requires an application and a fee. Renters are able to obtain one decal for their car to enter the guard gate as an 'owner' without stopping as a 'visitor'. Electric pool heat in Winter is charge per week when used.
We have a minimum of 7 night stay and discounts for month long rentals or longer.
We would encourage renters to inquire about renter's insurance which is available through AAA or many private companies. It is not expensive but well worth it in event of unexpected illness.
My husband is a retired physician and I am a retired clinical social worker. We both grew up in the Pittsburgh area and fell in love with Naples when we rented a home there for a month. We discovered Briarwood as we were looking for places to build our home. The location of the development could not have been better. They say 'location, location, location' is important and we believed that we had found the perfect place.
Briarwood is a private, gated community located on Livingston and Radio Roads. It is minutes to Old Naples,beaches, shopping and restaurants as well as Interstate 75. Only 25 minutes from Southwest International Airport (Ft. Myers).

Location, location, location.
We stayed at this lovely home for 4 weeks, and have enjoyed every moment, so much so, that we do not want to leave and return to London. We have relaxed around the wonderful pool, which is to die for ! The views are beautiful,
there is plenty of seating and loungers, either in the shade or in the glorious Florida sunshine which is on the pool area all day. The home is very comfortable, clean, nicely decorated and well equipped for all a families needs. The location, Briarwoood is in a great location, within easy driving distance to glorious beaches, great shopping malls and a huge variety of amazingly tasty restaurant's. There can't be any where else quite as ideal as this home. We would recommend it without any hesitation.
Briarwood is a beautiful, well maintained, gated community filled with friendly people. This property is everything listed and more. Very welcoming, makes you feel right at home. The landscaping and yard is lovely both during the day and in the evening. It is beautiful, very clean and is well supplied with everything you might need. The view of the pool with the lake in the background is gorgeous, and the pool which is large and sparkle clean has sun all day. Comfortable patio furniture in the sun and shaded areas. The owner is quick to respond and wonderful to work with. I would highly recommend this property. We were here for three weeks and loved it so much we wanted to stay longer. We are coming back next year.
Our stay in this lovely home was relaxing and very memorable. The house is beautifully decorated from paint colors to window treatments. We felt as if we were staying at a friend's home and not in a rental property. The owners were quick to respond to any question we had during our month long stay and always very gracious. Everything you need to make your vacation enjoyable is provided for you. For instance, I love to cook. Everything and anything I needed I found in the kitchen. We spent relaxing days by the pool which looks out onto a small lake and is surrounded by palm & pine trees. Just lovely. There are plenty of lounge chairs by the pool in addition to a sitting area for those who wish to be outside but not in the sun. We had fabulous dinners on the lanai. There are bikes in the garage so we rode most everyday for exercise. Many people in the neighborhood walk every day. The community is very friendly and welcoming. There is so much to do in and around Naples and most within 15 minutes. Our adult daughters went to Vanderbilt Beach a couple of times. We had two delightful trips to 3rd St. for lunch and shopping. Sea Salt was a treat for lunch. We also had two marvelous dinners alfresco- Cafe Lurcat and Chops City Grill. Also not to be missed are the shops & restaurants (not one bad choice here) at The Village on Venetian Bay. We took a sunset cruise courtesy of Pure Naples. We all loved it! Another day my husband & I drove 40 minutes to the Audubon Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary. A choice of a 1 mi or 2.5 mile walk takes you thru 4 different eco systems. I have to say I was reluctant to take an afternoon away from "our home" but this trip is a must. We saw so much wildlife and were awed by the beauty of the largest Cypress forest in North America. I could go on & on. This was our first trip to Naples. We had a delightful month long stay. Sad to be departing but so very grateful to have had the good fortune to stay in this lovely home. We hope to return in the future.
A great house, with an amazing amount of amenities. Owner was extremely easy to communicate with via email. Responses were prompt and informative. Quiet location, in a beautifully maintained gated community that was very safe and friendly. We spent some time almost everyday relaxing on the lanai overlooking a lake. So peaceful and serene. Even though we were there for a month, we were not ready to leave.
My stay at this home was enjoyable and exceeded my high expectations. Briarwood is a tasteful gated community, safe and friendly. The reality is that you need to drive most places. But 15 minutes gets you most everywhere; beach or downtown.
The house is stylish with elegant furnishing and decor. A great master bedroom suite with a roomy luxury bathroom. My favorite spot was on the south facing lanai that overlooks a small lake and scenic backdrop of trees.
The owners were a delight to deal with. Answering any question and most accommodating.
I'm planing to return!
We stayed at the house for two weeks over Christmas. My family has rented several homes in Briarwood and this was by far the best. It felt like a home and not like many of the "sterile" company owned rental properties in Briarwood. The owners were a pleasure to deal with and the home has everything you need; BBQ, Wifi, TV's in every room, bikes, beach chairs/cooler and pool toys for kids. One suggestion would be an upgraded stereo/soundbar with bluetooth to play music. We will gladly return. Thanks for a great stay Marsha and Jerome.
