About Tori Lucas

After spending our own personal time at the condo, we decided to share it with others! We began renting our condo in February 2010. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do!

Sapphire 707 is so inviting, fun and comfortable we have alot of repeat guests who rent multiple times per year! Try us out! You won't regret it! Additionally, we offer a sizeable discount for all returning guests! We hope you will visit us soon!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved your condo and had a wonderful stay. It was great having the pac n play and the high chair, too. Didn't have a thing that we needed that wasn't provided by you. It's obvious that you are very thoughtful. It was great that we could come and go to The Pearl, as well. We felt right at home!! The young people at the check in desk were so nice. We never passed by there without being greeted. Really hoping we can come back soon!

Relaxing on the balcony at this wonderful condo.

VRBO Bear stayed here

Jun 8, 2013

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.

Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

Top notch SPI Condo with all the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

Christmas vacation with a family of 7. There was plenty of room and it was furnished with everything you need to feel like home. Super convenient, directly across from the bridge into SPI. The beach was clean and very easy access. We really enjoyed the game room, but the theater was out of order :( (maybe next time). Tori made the transaction easy and had some good suggestions for dinner, even on Christmas eve.

Labor Day Week Visit

  • 5 of 5

We choose to stay at the Sapphire Complex over Labor Day weekend and it was a great choice. The entire building is composed of private ownership units that are accompanied by an amazing complex full of amenities. There is a game room, small theater, enormous CLEAN pool and the place is quite and relaxing. Now to the unit we stayed at #707. The place was really nice, clean and was outfitted with just about anything you could ask for. Flat screens every room, Wii for kids, beach toys for kids, accessories for babies like a pack n play, high chair etc. the kitchen was fully equipped with utensils, coffee maker, toaster, pans, nice silverware, plates and much more. The owners even go as far as providing soap, bath supplies and makeup remover for the women. "Smart I must say to save their towels from potential makeup staining." The condo is roomy and you also get to use and enjoy the amenities of the Pearl South Resort next door. More of party life there with a swim up bar and come back to the quite sitting of the Sapphire. If you can't tell we loved the place.

Great place

  • 4 of 5

Everything in the condo was up to par and plenty of items in the kitchen for prepping and cooking. My wife thought the master king bed was a little on the hard side but besides that great condo with plenty of games and videos for the kids.

Owner's Response: I am sorry you don't feel strongly enough to give us 5 stars...... this is a first..... I guess it is a good thing we didn't charge you the additional $100 cleaning fee for leaving a beer in the freezer's ice maker (we have pictures) and have it explode in to the ice maker and all over the freezer.......... We do our best to exceed our guests expectations........ and my guess is you were not happy from the beginning when you expressed dis-satisfaction with the rules and regulations ISSUED by The Sapphire Homeowner's Association that all guests are supposed to follow.......... All of our other 54 reviews speak for themselves............ We will continue to provide a comfortable, fun vacation experience for all!
