About the property

Siesta Key White Sand Beach Villa Rated #1 in the USA

Casual Elegance can best describe this charming 1 Bedroom 1 Bath Villa on world famous Siesta Key Beach. Known as "one of the nicest' villas at Jamaica Royale, this unit was re-modeled during the summer of 2014 by new owners and offers a crisp clean look and vibe for your vacation escape. The unit received numerous upgrades. Everything in the unit is brand new including stainless steel refrigerator, dishwasher, stove and microwave, small kitchen appliances, granite counter tops, breakfast bar, dining set, leather sleep sofa, upholstered chairs, coffee and end tables, area rugs, art work, entertainment center, pendant lights, chandelier, ceiling fans, coffee makers, Emeril cookware and knives for the gourmet, toaster oven, telephones, 48” Sony Bravia HD TV, 32” HD TV, high speed verizon wireless internet, king sized bedroom set, high grade mattress and bedding. It’s all new and fresh and bright.

Unit 52 overlooks pool #1 (also known as the “quiet” pool) and offers brand new pavers in the front and rear of the unit and features Florida Patio’s newest high end “Hurricane” line of custom made patio furniture, including two recliners, dining table, chairs and umbrella.

Unit 52 offers the perfect setting for a couple. While it does have a pull out couch convenient for a small child, the unit is not appropriate for four adults. There are several two bedroom units on site appropriate for four adults.

The unit also features a stacked GE washer/dryer unit.

Some added features that make this unit special include a reverse osmosis water filtration system for the refrigerated drinking water dispensing system and built in ice maker. No bottled water needed here! The HVAC system is oversized for plenty of cool air and we also just added a whole house air purification system that eliminates allergens.

To facilitate beach time, the unit has a beach buggy, folding beach chairs, umbrella and stand, noodles, two different sized coolers and multiple ice packs for your use. The high end refrigerator also makes lots of ice.

Unit 52 is ready for your vacation get away. Reserve yourself a really nice unit in a really nice place today! As many say, this is paradise. Please check out the unit photos including our Heron friend “One More”, so named because when he shows up on the patio to greet you, you will want to stay at least “One more” day to admire his beauty and all that Jamaica Royale offers.

Unit 52 has its very own, free, covered parking space right in front of the unit, moving luggage and groceries is a snap.

Unit 52, your crisp clean vacation villa; casual elegance. Reserve your time today.

Please note that Unit 52 is located just outside of Pool #1 of 3, also known as the quiet pool. The unit is about 500 steps from the beach, a lovely walk along a very nice landscaping.

About John Nadeau

I am a retired fire chief and emergency management director, my wife is an elementary school principal. We live on the seacoast of New Hampshire and recently purchased this unit and have made extensive renovations. We have been vacationing in the Sarasota region for several years. We love the area, the beautiful white sand beach, the warm water, morning walks, evening sunsets, the grills, the pool, nearby restaurants, Siesta Key Village for its Key West feel, and shopping at St. Armand's Circle.

John Nadeau purchased this villa in 2014

Why John Nadeau chose Siesta Key

We just love Siesta Key Beach. It has been rated as the #1 beach in the USA and typically makes the top ten list world wide. Jamaica Royale is a terrific complex, with exceptional staff.

What makes this villa unique

Our unit can best be described as casually elegant, it is crisp, clean, remodeled, has all new furnishings and includes a washer dryer in the unit. We are located right outside the 'quiet pool', an added bonus! There is high speed wireless internet in the unit as well as high definition FIOS TV service and flat screen TV's.

False Advertising

  • 4 of 5

So this apartment was 1/4 mile back from the gulf--NOT Gulf Front as advertised. And I discovered that if I had rented it directly from Jamaica Royale instead of VRBO I would have saved $500 for the week! The apartment was very nicely decorated, had lawn chairs, a laundry and was perfect for two of us. The pool right outside the door was lovely and we were glad to have it on account of the red tide. But I paid what I knew was above the market because it said gulf FRONT. Anyway, we had a lovely week.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, please note that VRBO will be issuing you a $500 refund for the security deposit, you did not overpay $500, Jamaica Royale is a gulf front property, versus other resorts that are bayside. Beach front units are available at significantly higher prices. We are clear in our property description that our unit is about 500 steps from the beach, right outside of pool one, also known as the quiet pool. Most of our guest enjoy the short lovely walk to the beach as the grounds are very nicely landscaped. Again, thank you for your review.

Perfect Spot!!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I spent a 3-day weekend in this cozy condo in June of 2018. We thoroughly enjoyed the place. It was closer than some of the other reviews said the distance to the beach was, and we made to sure to be there for every beautiful sunset. It was clean and updated perfectly. Being so close to the pool was a huge bonus too. We would definitely stay here again.

The condo was in reasonably good shape. It was a comfortable place to stay.

  • 4 of 5

It is a nice condo, the walk to the beach was not too far. The beach was very nice except for the red tide that went north and south of the condo property. Bring coffee, and coffee filters for the 12 cup coffee maker or k cups for the Kerig. Bring your own beach towels for convenience. The washer and dryer in the condo was a blessing. The condo owner did a great job of passing on information that was helpful before our arrival.

This remodeled unit was perfect accommidations for my wife and I.

  • 4 of 5

This updated unit was very nicely decorated, perfect size for 2 adults, and the furniture was upscale and comfortable. Location to one of the resort's pools was just outside the patio. Our stay was most enjoyable. Only very minor issues/concerns that we didn't anticipate kept the rating from being a 5.....only one partial roll of TP, no salt and pepper shakers, and no laundry packets to do laundry (although there were dish washing tablets for the dishwasher) which were all quickly rectified with a trip to Publix which was just over the bridge. It was great that there were two TVs (both sufficiently sized flat screens) in the unit. I would highly recommend this resort as well as this unit.

Owner's Response: Hi, thank you for your review. Please accept my apologies for the lack of supplies in the unit. I encourage any future guests to check in with housekeeping/the front desk for any issues that arise and if that does not solve the issue, please call me. Jamaica Royale has two full time quality control inspectors on staff, inspecting each unit prior to a guest check in. The lack of supplies should not have happened. Again, my apologies.

Nice place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This unit was very clean and contained all the amenities that we needed. It was nice to have our own washer and dryer as well as all other appliances. The bed is large and comfortable, there was no dust on the dressers, and the floors were clean. The unit was right next to a pool, but is about a five minute walk to the beach. By the way, the beach is awesome! Overall, a very nice place to stay.
