Briarwood is a friendly environment for a family. It is close to the highway, shopping (food and souvenirs), movies, restaurants, downtown Falmouth and the three public Falmouth beaches. ( I would recommend going to the beaches on the National Seashore or Skaket Beach-much better!) Jane at the front desk is a wealth of helpful information and is willing to answer all your questions. There is a pool, dvd borrowing (no fee), game room, tennis, playground, basketball, hammocks to lounge in right on site Barbecue grills and picnic tables are behind each fenced in unit. Most flatware, cookware, towels, etc is provided. You just need to buy your own food.
There is also a small park walking distance away with another playground and pond to swim in.

On the flip side, you take out your own garbage, where your condo is matters, and there is no wifi in the rooms. There is wifi by the pool but its not convenient especially when its raining or when there are loud kids swimming and you're trying to video chat. The clubhouse (availability to get games, ask for more supplies, borrow movies, get laundry done) has very limited daytime hours. If your condo is on the poolside or the street side it can be very noisy when you and your children want to sleep. The condos are in need of some minor general repairs (loose electrical outlets, leaky faucets, broken window locks, but if something bothers you, tell Jane and she'll make sure it gets repaired. The tvs are small but they do have dvd players. There is no fitness facility. You'll probably want to buy bottled water as the city water smells and tastes horrible.
Overall, I would recommend Briarwood as a fun family place. Certainly is not a "resort" but still makes for a pleasant stay.

Room Tip: rooms farther from the pool and road are quieter don't park under the pine trees, they drip sap. very hard to remove from a car bring your own clothespins/twine to hang up wet bathing suits outside

The staff was very helpful when my family and I stayed. They were sure to answer any questions I had, along with any problems I came across. I only had one maintenance issue with the outside light and it was taken care of the same day. The front desk women, I believe her name was Jane, knew exactly where to go to make the trip its very best whether it was places to eat or sights to see. The living quarters were very comfortable and felt very homey. The area is very close to the center of town and a number of beaches. Great if you have kids and plan on getting out of the house. I would definitely plan on coming back!

The townhouse was clean and functional with good selection of appliances and dishes. Very suitable for a family of 4.The staff is helpful - offering suggestions of beaches and restaurants. There are good clay tennis courts and a small pool which is often crowded.
It is not the Ritz, but quite adequate for a beach holiday.

Room Tip: Townhouses near the pool close to the amenities. Further away are quieter.

Briarwood is a family resort, it is not opulent. It does have a nice pool, tennis courts, a private patio with a good quality charcoal grill, an umbrella table and a great location. Minutes to town and beaches. The unit we had was a two bedroom end unit. It was as clean as most hotel rooms. The property is not new, but you are not paying $2500 per week. If you want and expect first class then this is probably the wrong choice. It is a superb value and the staff is quick to help if there is a problem. Our first time here but we will be back.

Nice place. Been going here with the family for years. The pool is open late as is the playground and Tennis Court. Able to walk to town,and ferry to Martha's. I would recommend this place for a family vacation. 5 minute drive to at least 4 beaches. Very convenient to mush of the cape locations.
