'Naples Paradiso'..remodeled villa..heated salt water pool/spa extra large lanai

Bedrooms 3
Space 2,001 sq ft
Property type house
Minimum Stay 6 - 7 nights


About the property

This is a 3 bedroom villa, over 2000sq ft. under air (volume ceilings with crown molding everywhere), located on the wide section of a lake in a beautiful, well maintained gated neighborhood. The entire villa is diagonally tiled with no carpeted areas- a desirable feature for some travelers. An oversized private modern salt water pool and a spa ( can be heated-pool at 87F and spa at 102F ) was commissioned in 2015 along with an oversized lanai ~990 sq ft. brick pavers. The design of the pool with the expansive lake view behind, almost creates an illusion of an infinity pool.. Thr furniture and décor is high end. The master suite is oversized and is equipped with a king size bed with a high end Eurotop mattress, a walk in closet, a writing desk , a wide HD TV, and a walk out to the pool and lanai. The other two bedrooms have queen size beds, one overlooking the lake. The two baths, recently remodeled, have showers with modern glass enclosures. The kitchen, with granite counters is well equipped. An out door grill is included.

The laundry room is equipped with washer and dryers- front loading. The house has high speed internet and cable. The family room has a wide screen HD TV with blue ray DVD player. There is also a DVD library for the guests to enjoy some classic selections. The Living room is situated in the middle, which upon entry, provides a panoramic view of the lake and pool area (picture 1.above).

Briarwood is a gated community and employs a private security company to constantly monitor the premises. The Gulf beaches, elegant upscale shopping ( Waterside) and fine dining is only a few miles away. Briarwood has 2 tennis courts and a professional coach (Frank) who happens to be our neighbor. In addition, there are two large community pools, basketball, volleyball and playgrounds, a short walk from the house. Beach chairs and beach towels are available. Wine lovers will find not just the opener but also stoppers and a vacuum pump to preserve the remaining wine. Some airlines still insist on paper boarding passes. As such, a wireless/USB cable printer has been installed. Attention to detail is readily apparent to a discriminating traveler.

About Paul/manager/owner

The owners are professionals from Ohio who, for years, had been visiting their friends from college here in Naples. They finally allowed themselves to be persuaded by their friends to make a life style change and make the move to the sub-tropics. They will be available, if needed, as they live just 15 minutes away.

Paul/manager/owner purchased this house in 2016

Why Paul/manager/owner chose Naples

Briarwood is very popular with vacationers from within the US as well as tourists from overseas. This property was purchased and upgraded to cater to the requirements of a discriminating traveler. The location is west of I75 and not far from Naples downtown.

Fabulous stay in Briarwood

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Naples and stay at the property. The house is well laid out, very comfortable and well equipped with everything you need. The beds are extremely comfortable. The pool has great seating areas and we really enjoyed the spa. The house is in an amazing area close to everything Naples has to offer. The owner is extremely attentive and hospitable. You won’t be disappointed.

Wished we could have stayed longer.

  • 5 of 5

We were only able to stay for five nights but loved every minute. The property is fantastic (great space, newer everything, very well provisioned - if you need it, it's probably there - and close enough to all that Naples has to offer. Paul was extremely responsive to everything along the way. From pre-planning type questions to little things while we were there. Overall a fantastic place with an owner/manager who 'gets it'. Loved the little extra touches such as some cold beer in the fridge upon arrival, a vast majority of supplies like laundry soap, dish washer soap, spices, etc already there, closet full of games, books and movies, etc. Would highly recommend.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind words Steve. When the guests are eagle eyed and appreciate small things, it means a lot to the host which In turn inspires us to do more. We hope you will come back to Naples again.

Amazing Naples home with exceptional vacation qualities

  • 5 of 5

My parents and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Paul’s beautiful home in Naples. The layout of the house itself is very conducive to a relaxing vacation. The master bedroom and bath are on one side of the house and 2 other bedrooms and a bathroom are on the other. You can have both inclusion and privacy as you choose. The kitchen has everything you need and truly makes you feel like you are in your own home. Paul is an extremely gracious host. He checked in on us throughout our stay to make sure we were comfortable. He assured us he was always available to answer any questions even though he left very detailed notes on the pool, the TV, the lights, etc. that made us feel secure. The pool was amazing. We used it every day. It’s a salt water pool so you don’t have the lingering smell of chlorine on your person, towels and clothes. The sauna is constantly flowing warm water into the pool and it was like having your own private waterfall. The sound was so relaxing it made you not want to leave the lanai. You can tell Paul is the type of owner that continually wants to enhance his home as well as his guests' experiences. He had a light installed in both the pool and sauna the week we were there. Thru the pool's remote control you could choose from different colors and it was amazing to look out in the evenings with the lights on. We already booked for 2019 this time for 2 weeks and we cannot wait! Thank you so much Paul for making my parents' 1st real vacation in almost a decade a very special one. Jen Krauser

Owner's Response: It was our privilege to host such a warm and wonderful family that could spot and appreciate the littlest things.... things that often go unnoticed. Your ephemeral visit notwithstanding, you morphed into friends that any host would yearn for a return visit.

Very nice vacation home.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely home which is located in a quiet, private gated community. The house has very nice accommodations and the kitchen is especially well equipped. Nice location.

The pool, spa, and view across the pond were our favorites. No negatives. The owner is available if issues arise. We give it five stars.

A nice break from the usual

  • 5 of 5

We usually stay at a hotel/motel when visiting relatives in Naples. So this time we tried a VRBO for the first time and it was like having a place of our own. This place is very comfortable and Paul provided everything you could think of. All we needed to bring was the groceries. Paul promptly returned our deposit after our stay.

Thanks again Paul,

Very well appointed home - very helpful owner

  • 5 of 5

our first experience of renting a home and we were lucky to choose this one.

Paul is very helpful and his property is very nicely fitted out - great hot tub is a bonus - but across the board everything is very good quality with lots of thoughtful touches.

if you are looking for a quiet location for visiting Naples area then this will be hard to beat.
