About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

Permit #: 2015-228248


Imagine........sipping your morning coffee or eating a cozy dinner on your own private balcony, watching and listening to the waves of the Gulf of Mexico. Sapphire Condo 707 is a privately owned condo located on the 7th floor of the newest and most luxurious condominiums on South Padre Island. The condos are located directly on the beach and our ocean side balcony offers spectacular views of the Gulf! The bay-side balcony offers a beautiful sunset and an electric grill.

Professionally decorated, the condo provides a warm, relaxing and stress-free environment. A fully equipped kitchen will turn even the less experienced cook into a master chef! The master bedroom offers a wonderfully, luxurious king size bed with a view of the Gulf through the large picture window! The large master bath provides two sinks, spacious walk-in shower, jetted tub and huge closet.

The second bedroom has two queen size beds, while the third bedroom has a twin size bed and pull-out trundle. All the mattresses in each room are so comfortable you won't want to get out of bed! The living room and three bedrooms include a flat screen TV. Each bedroom also comes equipped with a ceiling fan. In addition to high speed internet, Condo 707 is equipped with Wifi access. The second bathroom is quite large as well and also offers two sinks.

Sapphire's amenities make this a very popular vacation destination for families. In addition to the beach and all its related activities; Sapphire offers a spectacular 300' pool, a teen room equipped with pool table, shuffleboard, foosball, pin ball machines, and computers, as well as a 24 seat theater. A very well equipped fitness center and a world class spa are also available on the first floor.

A utility room is located in the unit with washer and dryer. We also provide an ironing board and iron and blow-dryers in both bathrooms! Additionally, we provide board games, video library and a Nintendo Wii. UPDATE: While we do provide a WII for your pleasure - due to past dishonesty and theft of all games....YOU WILL BE REQUIRED TO PROVIDE YOUR OWN WII GAMES. So even if it can still have a blast! You will also find a DVD player in each bedroom!

BONUS: We also provide beach chairs, a beach umbrella, sand/beach toys for the little ones (or the grown-ups...) and a cooler on wheels!

Conveniently located just over the causeway on South Padre Island, and within walking distance of Schlitterbahn Water Park. Once you get won't want to leave! Additionally, ALL GUESTS have access to The Pearl Resort which is located next door! The Pearl has a swim-up bar and a very kid-friendly pool with slide! The best of both worlds at both wonderful properties!

(Again - Rates DO NOT include tax, cleaning/linen/resort fee or Damage Protection Plan.)

About Tori Lucas

After spending our own personal time at the condo, we decided to share it with others! We began renting our condo in February 2011. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do!

Tori Lucas purchased this condo in 2009

Why Tori Lucas chose Texas Gulf Coast

Sapphire Spa and Condominiums is THE BEST location on the beach! It boasts a beautiful pool and shared access to The Pearl Resort next door! Additionally, Schlitterbahn Water Park is within walking distance! What more could you ask for?

What makes this condo unique

Sapphire 707 is located in the 'Left' tower of the property offering a perfect view right in the middle of the tower! Additionally, our condo - being in the middle - offers the largest balcony with optimal fixed seating for 6 and plenty of room for 2 or 3 more chairs (located in a closet inside)! Additionally, we consider our condo unique in that we offer a Nintendo Wii. UPDATE: While we do provide a WII for your pleasure - due to past dishonesty and theft of all games....YOU WILL BE REQUIRED TO PROVIDE YOUR OWN WII GAMES; board games; books; beach chairs; boogie boards; beach/sand toys; beach umbrellas and a rolling cooler! A TV and DVD player is located in each room, plus a Blu Ray/DVD player in the living room! Sapphire 707 is so inviting, fun and comfortable we have alot of repeat guests who rent multiple times per year! Try us out! You won't regret it! Additionally, we offer a sizeable discount for all returning guests! We hope you will visit us soon!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved your condo and had a wonderful stay. It was great having the pac n play and the high chair, too. Didn't have a thing that we needed that wasn't provided by you. It's obvious that you are very thoughtful. It was great that we could come and go to The Pearl, as well. We felt right at home!! The young people at the check in desk were so nice. We never passed by there without being greeted. Really hoping we can come back soon!

Great spot!

  • 5 of 5

This review is long overdue! This is a fantastic property. The location can't be beat. The beds were comfortable, everything very clean. The owners are very nice and responsive. The pools are very enjoyable and having access to get drinks next door is great. We will stay again!

Beautiful South Padre Property

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our 7 night stay at the Sapphire 707! First of all, the pictures do not do this place justice. I am a platinum Marriott rewards member and it is rare for me to have to rent my vacation spot. However, this place was well worth every penny and has all of the comforts of home. The kitchen is stocked with more appliances, etc. than we have. The view is perfect! I highly recommend this property.

Nothing better than this!!

  • 5 of 5

This is literally our sixth visit Sapphire 707! My husband and I , and our children have made this an annual trip! We love this condo! Tori is fabulous to work with and is always offering discounts for returning ing guests! Every year, it seems we find d something new! Added movies and games, to more toys,chairs and beach items! Our kids now call this "our condo"! The staff continue to be wonderful, and every year we see a lot of the same friendly faces!

We love the location, right on the beach and next door to Schlitterbahn! The property itself continues to be beautifully maintained! Our favorite area is of course the pool and hot tub! We also love the fact that it is never overcrowded! We have friends who stayed at another location on the island, and while it was a very nice property, you couldn't even see the water in the pool because of all the people! Not at the Sapphire! The pool is huge, and there is plenty of room for everyone!

It is probably a good thing that we are a 7 hour drive, or we might be there all the time! After all, the kids are always saying...."when are we going to our condo!" LOL!

Thank you Tori for making our family vacation experience so wonderful! See you next year!

Wonderful Condo

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful condo that was fully supplied from kitchen to beach toys. The owner was wonderful to work with and the employees of the Sapphire Condos were too. The pool was amazing and of course the beach was beautiful! I highly recommend staying here and I hope we can make it back soon!

Perfect family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time using VRBO and I was a little nervous, but all my worries were relieved upon arrival to Sapphire 707. In addition, Tori made the booking process smooth and was very quick to respond to questions and emails. We traveled with both grandmothers and 3 kids (infant to age 6) and we had more than enough room for everyone. The condo was just as it was described, beautifully furnished and had everything you could need or want. The children's items were especially helpful (highchair, crib, stroller) and there was never a dull moment with the supplied DVDs, games and Wii. We saved time and money by cooking most of our meals in the well stocked kitchen (pots, pans, and everything a cook would need). The view of the beach from the living room was gorgeous and we spent plenty of time on the patio. The Sapphire building itself is modern and well maintained with beautiful grounds and large pool and there is direct access to the beach. This trip was by far the best and most relaxing family vacation we have had and we can't wait to return!

Great Get Away

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have never used VRBO before, but I have always been interested in checking it out, so when we planned our strip to South Padre Island, I decided to take the leap and see what I could find! Boy, oh boy, did we hit the Jackpot!!!! Our accommodations were found to be of the highest quality, absolutely beautiful furnishings that were very comfortable for our family. I did learn that I need to read everything about the facility and everything that comes with it. Since I didn't do my complete homework, we hauled baby gear for our granddaughter----little did we know that everything we ever thought about needing was furnished in this unit! This was a wonderful family trip to celebrate a big birthday for one of our daughters and see the great sand castles. This owner makes sure their visitors have everything they need to make our living easy. I am a cook and my family loves to cook and we had anything and everything we would ever need to use. We didn't even have to buy salt and pepper. If you are on the fence about this unit---jump on over and experience the time of your life. The owners are so easy to work with which made this an even more enjoyable adventure and everyone we came in contact with during our stay were top notch and did anything we needed to make our stay evenmore enjoyable. There are so many amenities we did not use, but spoke with another couple that stated how much fun they had in the movie theater. Lots to do and great food at the Pearl!
