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.
