About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath Villa With Much Desired South Facing Private Pool

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.

About Dr. Jerome and Marsha Aarons

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).

Dr. Jerome and Marsha Aarons purchased this house in 2005

Absolutely Fantastic!!

  • 5 of 5

I have never had such a warm, kind welcome from any Homeowner as Dr. & Mrs. Aarons!! They went out of their way in every aspect to get me settled and make sure everything was perfect for my stay. Their home is beautiful and well established .. just like you are walking into your own home! More than adequate supply of linens and dishes with many extra bonuses. The property is nestled into a very quiet suburb of Naples - near the heart of everything. You feel safe and secure in this lovely neighborhood. Truthfully, there is nothing but nothing missing here for a fabulous vacation. Without a shadow of a doubt, I will be returning soon. Thank you very much Dr. & Mrs. Aarons!!

Wonderful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

First of all the owners are a pleasure to deal with. The home was just perfect for our family of 4 with 2 young children and a puppy. Lovely neighborhood, safe and secure for our morning and afternoon walks. Community is very centrally located, close to all attractions.

We enjoyed every day sitting outside, looking at the lake while kids were playing in the pool. Great times and memories!

Perfect Naples Home, nice dog friendly gated community

  • 5 of 5

This home will feel like your second home very quickly. Looks just like the pictures. It is clean and comfortable. The pool is large and private. We enjoy all our meals on the lanai. The kitchen has everything needed for baking and cooking. The owners are great to work with. And we can bring our yellow lab. I feel as though I live eleven months in Wisconsin and one month in this perfect home.

Perfect home in the Naples area

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to the Naples area and we really were fortunate to stay in this beautiful pool home. The property was very clean and ready when we arrived. The instructions for entrance were very clear and the gated community provided an additional level of security. The home is nicely furnished with all of the items we needed for an really fun stay. The landscaping was spectacular. The pool area was perfect for grilling and gathering with family. The pool it self was spotless and always at about 86 deg due to the use of the solar panels on the roof. This home is an easy drive to what Naples has to offer. Marsha was able to answer any questions that we had via email and was very helpful prior to our arrival with information about the area as well during our stay. We loved our stay in this fantastic home and will return when we visit Naples in the future.

Perfect Holiday Home

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful house is perfectly set up for renters especially as was our case a family with two small grandchildren.

The large house itself is very well equipped and maintained. The kitchen is fully stocked and I was able to easily prepare meals and to entertain.

The pool and large lanai contains everything for living outside including a gas BBQ. The garage is also filled with beach chairs and toys as well as 2 bicycles which was ideal to discover the Briarwood estates.

We also enjoyed the community pool, tennis courts and playground.

Lastly the owners were very communicative and responded immediately if we had a question or request which was very appreciated.

Loved our vacation and hope to come back next year! Highest recommendation.

Wonderful HOME

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay here. I feel as at home here as at my primary residence.. That's because it is just so inviting and personalized. The location is convenient via car ,or in my case bicycle, to what Naples has to offer. Yet when we arrive back to the house it is serine and quiet. A lovely landscaped yard lead to the front door. Inside the home you find decor and furnishings unlike a rental and much like my home. The lanai overlooks the pool and the lake beyond. We spent countless hours there; breakfast, reading or catching the warming rays of sunshine. You don't see another house from inside the house or lanai.

And the owners are delightful hosts. I never met them but I feel as if we are established friends. Planning to return.
