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 South Padre Island

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!

Amazing place!!

  • 5 of 5

One of the best places if not the best place we have stayed in at South Padre Island. The unit itself was extremely comfortable and clean from the beds, bathrooms, living area, etc. The kitchen is equipped with many kitchen tools to make meals. I loved the spacious island in the kitchen! The bedrooms were spacious and the closets, especially the one in the master is so big. The beds were very comfortable. The view from the balcony is spectacular! We loved the perks offered at the facility (theater room, game room, and spa). The swimming pool is enormous. It was never crowded, which i liked. The beach access is awesome as well!

You are actually steps away from the beach! Overall it was a wonderful vacation for my family. I would definitely be interested in staying here again another time.

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.
