About the property

RATES JUST LOWERED! 11th floor Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

2016 is a great year for that family vacation you have been putting off. South Padre’s most gorgeous residential gem, is a one-of-a-kind, 30-story property reminiscent of a full-scale, luxury resort. This Magnificent 1750 square foot, 3 bedroom ocean waterfront rental is fully equipped and ready to help make your vacation one of a kind. Features 2 big balconies overlooking the ocean AND the bay. All guests are required to have on a wristband that will be issued at check-in. Staff will be monitoring this so it is intended that only authorized Sapphire guests and owners will be on property.

Unit 1105! The photos say it all. Check out our bunk room! Sure makes it easy to comfortably bring friends to the beach. One of the largest 3 bedroom units available at the Sapphire and every inch well planned for the perfect beach vacation. You should consider that (aside from the penthouse), most other 3 bedroom units available to rent at The Sapphire are substantially smaller AND although they do have a “bayside” balcony and personal grill for your use, they are located ACROSS the hallway OUTSIDE the condo, our balcony is attached with access from inside the condo with the grill close to the kitchen. In addition, 1105 boasts an additional very spacious half bath that the smaller units don’t have. Privately owned/managed, exceptionally maintained and one of the best on the beach! This is owned and managed by US, not a management company. We use it, and want to be comfortable while there so you get to enjoy all the personalization and detailed amenities that we have painstakingly thought out for our own families needs while visiting SPI. The unit is in the CENTER of the 2 towers on the 11th floor and thus boasts incredible panoramic ocean views and impressive bay views. Large 218 sqft balcony, with comfy furniture, staring straight at the ocean and just high enough to watch the pelicans fly by. Outdoor gas grill on bayside balcony that is ATTACHED to the unit (not across the hall as most are configured). This condo is not your typical sparsely decorated rental. Finish-out is top notch and decor is warm and contemporary. No detail ignored to make your stay easy and luxurious. Peaceful and unbelievably private. Conveniently located just over the causeway on the island and walking distance to both Schlitterban Parks. Rates from $450 per night/high season. Discount given for full 7 day rental. Winter Texans just call/email for monthly rates. Serious inquiries only please.


Master bedroom:

Spacious King size Westin HEAVENLY mattress bed and private bath. 42' plasma with DVD player. Huge closet and a magnificent ocean view to wake up to (sleeps 2).

Guest bedroom:

Queen size pillow-top bed with gorgeous bay view window. 32' plasma TV with DVD player. Full bath with stand up shower and jetted garden tub just outside the door to the room.Powder bath is also close by this room(sleeps 2).

About Jenny Palmieri

Sapphire 1105 is owned and managed by us, the owners. We put our deposit down when this incredible development was still just a parking lot. I love it's accessibility and all the amenities. We stocked our condo as if we were going to live there, you will have everything you need. Our goal is to have you return again and again over the years.

Jenny Palmieri purchased this condo in 2009

Why Jenny Palmieri chose Gulf Coast

Because it is the best on the beach, we love that we can drive to it from our primary home.

What makes this condo unique


1105 was built in 2009 and is the largest of the 3 bedroom floor plans offered at the Sapphire (“Diamond” floor plan at 1750 SF with oceanside outdoor terrace at 239 SF) You should consider that aside from the penthouse, most other 3 bedroom units available to rent at The Sapphire are substantially smaller AND although they do have a “bayside” balcony and personal grill, they are located ACROSS the hallway OUTSIDE the condo. In addition, 1105 boasts an additional very spacious half bath that the smaller units don’t have. This will prove to be more useful than you think.

1105 is in the CENTER of the 2 towers on the 11th floor and thus boasts incredible panoramic ocean views and impressive bay views. We specifically chose the 11th floor in the left tower for many reasons you will understand upon arrival, and it has proven to be an absolutely perfect location in the development. You don’t want to be too high (that you can’t see the dolphins and beach activity from the balcony) or too low (that your view is impeded by neighboring buildings or are disturbed by the ground level activity). We are at the perfect structural height for pelicans fly right by us. Both balconies have comfy furniture to sit and relax and are peaceful and unbelievably private.

The master and guest rooms both have giant “un-crushable” featherbeds on top of the mattress. So comfortable in fact, that I have had requests from several renters on how I made the beds SO comfortable! The bunk room is the largest bedroom and seems to be everyone’s favorite. With 2 sets of bunk beds, (double size mattress on bottoms and twins on top) it can easily accommodate 4 kids or 4 adults.

Plain and simple, this place is the most fabulous 1st class place on the island. Even if it's not our unit that you rent, then still make sure you stay at The Sapphire. You won't regret it.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"My family and I stayed in this condo last summer and had the best vacation! The condo was exceptionally clean and beautifully decorated. It is on a great location on the beach with quick access to everything. The pool was clean and it was very private. Very upscale, with great ammenities. We are coming back again this summer and hopefully for many summers to come. We loved it and would highly recommend it to anyone."

Awesome Place - 100% Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This place is breathtaking and extremely comfortable. My family and I had a great time at this condo, which was equipped with everything we needed. Waking up to the ocean view was my favorite part, and my daughter loved the themed bunk room. I think the thing that sets this condo apart is how cozy it is; it feels like home (but much nicer). Staff were super friendly. Definitely the nicest building on the island with the cleanest amenities.

Yearly Visitor

  • 5 of 5

This is not our first trip to the Sapphire or this unit. We go every year in late summer to enjoy the wonderful Gulf and the beach. The swimming pool is so big you never feel crowded by other swimmers. The condo is so well maintained and beautiful and the amenities are great entertainment for the kids. There's plenty to do on the island and great restaurants nearby. We look forward to it each year.

What a perfect way to relax and enjoy the beach. Condo was clean, beautifully decorated, has all the conveniences of home except you don't have to worry about answering the phone or doing chores!! The balcony has a perfect view of their amazing pool and of the beach. Bring your favorite movie to watch in their movie theater or watch one of their movies. For you ladies...condo is close to cute shops to spend your money in and places to eat. We had an amazing time and will definitely be back next year!!

We enjoyed a wonderful long weekend spent with two other couples in this beautiful, spacious condo. Golfing, shopping, wine tasting, walking the beach and great restaurants were on our agenda. The week continued with four women sharing the space and we had more than enough room with room to spare. The rain did not slow us down. We prepared outstanding breakfasts in the well equipped kitchen then enjoyed time reading, playing cards, walking the beach and sitting poolside/hot tub. 1105 Sapphire is the perfect place to enjoy SPI any time of the year. I look forward to our next visit....can't wait to get back to the Island and this lovely condo!!

Nearest Airport
40 Miles
Harlingen/Valley Airport

Have you ever ridden a Sky Coaster or Human Slingshot? Well right near the Sapphire there is the GRAVITY PARK. Lots of rides, go karts and even trampolines and bungee jumping. You can ride horses on the beach or rent fast dune buggies and tear it up on the sand at the end of the island. Indoor and outdoor Schlitterbahn is within walking distance!

The 2 BEST Schlitterbahn Water parks in the country are also right next door. You float thru the line instead of lugging your tube around. It’s very clean chlorine water and the only water park we like to go. In addition, there is a pirate ship to have dinner on where you can become part of the show! So fun! There are sea life touch tanks AND a Sea Turtle Rescue place with a famous turtle named Allison nearby! She has been on TV because she only has 1 flipper and still getting along because of a special suit the rescuers made for her. There are usually baby turtles there too.
