Property description

STR Permit #: 2015-985120

Experience luxury Padre style in South Padre Island's newest luxury resort! We hope you'll enjoy our 'island home' as much as we do. Our unit is perfectly situated with a beautiful view overlooking the gorgeous 300' long pool with the beach beyond.

Our professionally decorated unit has two bedrooms with king beds, and a third bedroom that sleeps 3. We have a crib and an airbed available if requested ahead of time. The great room area is very comfortable and looks out to the deck. We've stocked the kitchen with all the tools you should need for your meals - even a Belgian waffle maker!

The master suite has that great view, and a large luxurious bathroom with a separate whirlpool tub and shower, double sinks, and a huge closet. Plenty of plush towels, too! The other bathroom has a tub/shower and double sinks, and lots of towels as well. The second king bedroom has a festive beachy decor and a large closet. The third bedroom has a bunk with a twin on top and a futon on the bottom that can be used as a sofa or a double bed. All bedrooms have 32' TVs. The living room has a 52' TV and a DVD player. All TVs have cable. Across the hall is the private back deck with a first class electric grill. We've tried to make this a great home-away-from-home for you with super comfy mattresses and pillows, allergy-free pillow covers, and other homey touches.

The Sapphire facility is fantastic! You walk into a modern-style lobby with a seating area that beckons you. You might just want to hang out here sometimes. The gym is very large with many weight machines and treadmills, etc. You can watch TV while you work out or enjoy the view outside. There's a teen/rec room with foosball, pool, and video games, as well as several state of the art Mac computers. The plush movie theater is off the rec room, and has a schedule of nightly showings. There is also an on site spa in case you need some extra pampering. An awesome 'wine room' is available for gatherings. You have to see it!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Our family loves to visit the beach when we can. When we got the opportunity to invest in Sapphire, we jumped in hoping to have some time off and build great family memories here. We hope you do, too! If there is anything you need during your stay, feel free to call me.

Why the Owner Chose Sapphire:
I am in the construction industry, and am oftentimes offered condos at pre-construction prices. I was particularly impressed with the quality of Sapphire's construction and the unique amenities, which raise the bar for the rest of the island. I was one of the first buyers and chose our unit for it's great view, front and center on the pool, and not too far up. It's also easy to get to, being right across the causeway, and we can see the beach, pool, or Schlitterbahn from our patios before venturing out.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The beds here are so comfortable; I want the same mattresses for my home! I love walking on the beach in the morning, and the kids have fun playing in the water anytime of day or night! The pool and the poolside furniture are something else I really enjoy. We have access to the Sheraton pools, too, and their restaurant and bar are right there. The beach is just steps away through the pool area. Restaurants and shopping are nearby, and a taxi will take you anywhere on the island for five dollars. We've stocked our unit with some of things to make your vacation go a little smoother, like beach toys in the room, condiments in the fridge, etc. I made a booklet of suggested activities and favorite restaurants to help you in deciding what to do (personal suggestions, not advertisments), and I'm always a call away if you need anything!
