Large 2 Bedroom 2 Bath Sleeps 6 Ocean View Luxury Crown Jewel of South Padre

Our 2-Bedroom beach front luxury condo is located on the 7th floor in the island's crown jewel, the high-rise Sapphire Resort condominium. Fabulous ocean front view to enjoy your morning coffee or evening margaritas. Private second balcony faces to the western bay for sunset and firework views. The perfect place to enjoy the beauty and relaxation of South Padre Island.

** During Spring Break Only ** Sapphire is restricted to owners or Guest parties comprised of Parents with Children only and immediate family. No exceptions!! If you are a family looking for a high quality, quiet, safe and luxurious vacation over the spring break period, this is the perfect spot. You will find a fabulous resort experience for your family.

The Sapphire’s facilities and amenities simply must be seen to be believed! Practically brand new and ultra-modern, featuring a Texas sized 300 foot crystal clear swimming pool and a huge heated whirlpool large enough for 30! The large pool area features private cabana’s available for rental. Comfortable loungers surround the pool, which features high and low spots to wade or swim. A state of the art fitness center with Cybex equipment, flat screens everywhere, and a yoga room rivals the best fitness club anywhere.

Want to be pampered? Visit the Sapphire Spa on the main floor — the most beautiful full service spa in South Texas. Want to take care of business? The business center features multiple computers, printing capabilities, and high speed internet.

The great part of this complex is the variety of activities for everyone in the family! A game room provides great entertainment featuring table games like pool, foosball, shuffleboard, and pinball machines. A 24 seat home theater is available for your pleasure. There are nightly movies played at 7 pm or you can bring you own and reserve it to watch your favorites on a large screen with multi-speaker sound. Located right next door to Schlitterbahn, you can walk over to this amazing water park!

The Sapphire has a front desk staffed 24 hours and multi-level covered parking.

In addition to all the facilities the Sapphire offers, right next door is the Pearl Hotel (formerly Marriott), and Sapphire guests have access to all this hotel has to offer, including large pool with heated swim up bar and multiple restaurants. The Sunday brunch at the Pearl is the best on the island!

The condo units in the Sapphire are fabulous!

Enjoy long beach view from 10 foot windows in living room and master bedroom. Gourmet kitchen with modern appliances, granite countertops, and a huge island. High-end finishing with spacious rooms and plenty of storage. Huge master bath with Jacuzzi tub and walk-in shower w/ over-sized master closet. Bay-side sunset view and grill from private second balcony. Soaring 10-12 foot ceilings. These units are sparkling clean and feel like they are brand new.

Why choose our unit #703 for your Sapphire vacation?

We feature very low rates — compare us to everyone! You can not beat our prices at the Sapphire.

Perfect Size: Our two bedroom two bath unit is large (nearly 1400 square feet) and sleeps and hosts six very comfortably.

Master Bedroom: King bed.

Large Guest Bedroom: Queen bed.

Living Room: Pullout Queen mattress -- super comfortable!

Perfect Floor: 7th floor is the perfect Sapphire floor. High enough to see a huge expanse of ocean down to the channel, but low enough to feel and smell the ocean breeze and stay connected to the sea. Don’t accept anything lower or you will miss out on the fabulous view of the entire beach. Don’t go much higher or you see the neighboring roof tops! All Sapphire units have two private balconies — both eastern and western — and our bay (western) view is the perfect height to show you a beautiful expanse of the bay for memorable sunsets and weekend fireworks! Floor height is critical when selecting your perfect Sapphire room!

We have been vacation renters ourselves so we know exactly what thoughtful touches make it special and we’ve tried to provide them all. What could be better than a delicious coffee on our balcony overlooking the sea? Our room features a gourmet Saeco espresso machine! Foam-top king mattress in your master bedroom will make you think you’re floating on clouds while you gaze out the 10ft high window and admire the ocean. High end linens and towels, flat-screen TV’s with DVD players in each room, and stocked pantry with convenience items and cleaning supplies will make it easy to call #703 home!

There is a large laundry room with washer and dryer, and an ironing board and iron will keep you looking great when you head out on the town!

The Sapphire is without a doubt the best and most beautiful resort destination in South Padre Island, and #703 is the best of them all!

Amazing, beautiful, clean. Great views and friendly staff.

  • 5 of 5

My family of four rented Condo 703 at the Sapphire for a week in August. We had spent the previous four years at the Hilton Garden Inn but were seeking more room and the ability to cook full meals. This exceeded all expectations and met all of our needs. The decor was beautiful the rooms were extremely spacious not to mention a beautiful Master bath that was comparable to most homes. The kids had there own room and there was even a nice fold out couch if you need additional sleeping space. The Condo was nicely decorated and very clean upon arrival. The view was spectacular and in itself worth the cost of the stay. The staff was nice and promptly addressed any concerns. The pool was beautiful and was not overly crowded at anytime during our stay. Beach access was very close and once we discovered a short cut on the other side of the Pearl we were able to take all of our stuff (coolers, chairs, tent, toys, kids, etc) and find a great spot on the beach in a short amount of time. The beach on this stretch of the island is gorgeous and not crowded at all. We were able to find a great spot everyday we were there within 5 mins of where the boardwalk ends. The location of the Sapphire is perfect and very close to our favorite breakfast spot "Yummies".

Lastly, Marc whom we rented the property from was extremely helpful and professional in all aspects of my experience. He responded very quickly to any questions I had before and after my stay.

We will definitely be back.

Seventh Heaven

  • 5 of 5

On the last night of our eight-night stay, my wife said, " look outside there is a full moon reflecting on the ocean." It was gorgeous, so we slept with the curtain pulled back and the bedroom full of moonbeams. It was a great way to end our vacation stay in Unit 703 of the Sapphire on South Padre Island, Texas.

This condo is in one of the most beautiful and architecturally striking buildings on South Padre Island. The twin towers are visible for many miles and glow with the aura of luxury. The Sapphire is conveniently located on the Southern end of the island near Schlitterbahn water park and one of our favorite restaurants, the Sea Ranch.

The impressive view from the unit's balcony includes the beach and the kick-ass pool which seems as long as a football field. The unit has a great kitchen and plenty of room for my wife and our three girls.

The front desk staff and maintenance staff are courteous and helpful.

Marc, the owner, has taken excellent care of his unit and even has a closet full of beach toys available for the use of his guests. He was Johnny-on-the-spot when we had a minor problem with the AC. I emailed him and he responded within 30 minutes with instructions on handling the issue.

The only way I could pry my girls away from the Sapphire was to promise them we would be back next year. And, I'm sure we will. Thanks Marc for the great vacation.

Beautiful property and #703 was absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Saphire. Absolutely great facility. The pool was immaculate and was just beautiful. Having easy access to the beach and the Pearl next door made everything so easy. #703 was also very nice. What a great condo. Loved the space and large rooms. Master suite and bathroom were perfect. We felt like we were at home. This is a great place to spend some vacation time with the family! We would highly recommend the Saphire and unit #703. Very memorable Memorial Weekend 2017!
