Sapphire condo description

(PLEASE NOTE: Rates DO NOT include tax, cleaning/linen/resort fee or Damage Protection Plan.)

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 with games! So even if it rains........you 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 here.....you 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.)

              Relaxing on the balcony at this wonderful condo. 06/08/2013

              VRBO Bear stayed here:


              We really enjoyed our stay at Sapphire 707. All you need to bring is yourself, sunblock and a swimsuit and you are all set! The owner provides everything else you need for your fun days at the beach. We found beach towels, beach toys, coolers, chairs, umbrellas and boogie boards, a very convenient addition.

              The condo appeared exactly as described in the listing. The view from the living room/kitchen and balcony was amazing, and definitely did not disappointment. It was beautiful to look out at and people watch. We ate on the balcony a couple of times and also enjoyed watching a lightning storm one night from the living room. The pool was nice and not overly crowded. Sapphire guests are allowed to use The Pearl’s pool next door which we enjoyed since it had a frog slide and was kid friendly. They also played music and had a walk-up bar with refreshments and food.

              The master bedroom was spacious and the king size bed was very comfortable. Each bathroom had dual sinks and all the amenities were provided. Hand soap, shampoo, conditioner and even make up remover were provided. Hair dryers were also provided in each bathroom and there were plenty of towels and washcloths. The condo also included a washer and dryer. We used them a couple of times. It was nice to pack up clean clothes for the trip home.

              The other two bedrooms were exactly as described. The kitchen had all stainless steel appliances and the entire condo was up to date. It was very refreshing and there was even a spice rack. The hotel staff was all very friendly and helpful as well. The elevators were extremely fast, important since we were up on the 7th floor. I would definitely recommend this condo to friends and family.
