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!

About Todd Aune

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.

Todd Aune purchased this condo in 2009

Why Todd Aune chose Gulf Coast

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.

What makes this condo unique

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!

Another Great Getaway in SPI!

  • 5 of 5

We have been to the Sapphire a number of times, and each time we leave impressed! What a great location, a nice staff, and all the amenities you could ask for. Truly the best on the island in my opinion. This condo was everything we hoped it would be and more. Our family had never stayed in this particular unit before, and stumbled upon it when our usual go-to at the Sapphire was booked. This one didn't disappoint, and we're very glad we stayed there. The decor was done tastefully, and welcomed you right when you walked in. From the comfortable couches, to the fantastic beds & large TV, it had it all. The condo was also stocked with all that you could want and more...from kitchen gadgets to towels, and much more. The view as always with the Sapphire was top notch, with a lovely balcony that overlooked the pool & beach. The communication with the owner was excellent, and he even helped personally with a minor issue with the HVAC, to make sure our stay was as comfortable as could be. Having stayed at a number of condos at the Sapphire, I can honestly say that this unit is in the best bunch of them all. Awesome stay in an Awesome location. Thanks again for accommodating us Todd.

Fabulous Spring Break Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was the best "away from home" vacation spot we could have ever chosen!!! The condo we were blessed to stay in for 5 days was heavenly! It had everything we needed for a family of 6. I really enjoyed the bottle of wine that was left on the granite top island. We had more than enough room and the scene from the balcony with the sun rising was breathtaking. I can't wait to go back and stay in condo#508. Heck, I have already inquired on how soon I can make my reservation to secure the same beautiful spot/condo that we enjoyed tremendously!

We had the pleasure and privilege of staying at this unit for 2 glorious months. It was better than our expectations. The view every morning was heavenly. I loved sitting on the balcony in the morning watching and listening to the waves crash onto the beach, than grabbing my shoes and going for a walk. I had my hair colored at the spa and was extremely happy with the results.. We also had a couples massage and absolutely Loved it.. The seashell massage was glorious. I highly recommend it.. The staff at the sapphire are extremely accommodating and friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed the hot tub in the evening. There are some fantastic restaurants and so many attractions. We loved the turtle rescue and the dolphin watch . We look forward to spending next winter here.

We loved our stay at this rental. The rooms were great, comfortable, and clean. Our kids had a blast on the bunk beds! The only problem was the washer wouldn't fill with water. otherwise, was great.

Wonderful and Relaxing Trip

  • 5 of 5

Traveled to South Padre Island in June and stayed at the Sapphire for 5 days and 4 nights. Wonderful time, nice and relaxing. We stayed here with one other family. The kids enjoyed the game room, I used the nice exercise room several days, then relaxed near the pool. Rented the cabana each day we stayed here and it was really nice to have. You are steps away from the beach and can swing by the grill at the sister hotel next door for a hamburger or pizza. We had such a great time, only left twice. Once for a massage and a nice dinner down the street at Black Beards. The room was furnished with everything you need for a wonderful getaway.
