Don't spend your precious vacation time in the cold and snow - fly south for the winter and soak in the rays in sunny Florida! This Naples vacation home with a private pool and lake views is the perfect place to take it easy while you decompress from the daily grind.
This home is in the quiet, gated community of Briarwood. There are several excellent golf courses nearby, and Naples Beach is a short distance to the west. If you're making a trip to the Everglades, they're just a few miles south!
High ceilings and plenty of natural light make the living areas feel bright and cheery. Watch some cable or a rented DVD, or log onto the WiFi to return emails. If you're feeling peckish, head to the full kitchen to whip up a snack.
Start your day off right with some freshly brewed coffee as you fry up some eggs and bacon to fortify you for the day's adventures. Have a sit-down meal and discuss what you're planning to do, then slide the dishes into the dishwasher and head out for some fun.
Read a book in a lounge chair while the kids splash around and play tag, or hop in with them and see if you can beat an opposing team at a game of Chicken. In the evening, fix yourself a cocktail and soak up the gorgeous views as the sun sets beyond the lake.
Groups of six will love their stay in this family-friendly house. A king master suite has an en suite bathroom with a walk-in shower, while the other two bedrooms have a queen and two twins, respectively. It's easy to find time to shower with two full bathrooms, and a private washer and dryer keep up your supply of clean towels.
Spend time burying each other in sand or building castles, hunt for seashells, or watch dolphins and manatees swim. Groups with young children will love a visit to the interactive Golisano Children's Museum - so much, in fact, that you may find yourselves returning over and over.
If you've never seen a cypress swamp before, make sure to visit Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary. With a boardwalk to keep your feet dry, you can focus on watching out for wildlife like snakes, armadillos, alligators, and turtles. If you want to actually get to feed the gators, you can - just head to the Naples Zoo.
Make the next family trip something everyone can get excited about!
