Guestbook comments from the owner

We visited here before the property was listed on VRBO, my good friend and I had a relaxing luxurious week long stay at this Sapphire condo. It is tastefully decorated, nicely furnished, and has an amazing view of pools and Gulf. We enjoyed morning coffee on the deck overlooking the pools and beach, as we were serenaded by the sounds of singing birds and gulf waves. Many walks on the beach highlighted our mornings. Though we did not use the patio deck on the west side (toward the Texas mainland) to grill, the view of sunsets there were breathtaking. There is easy walking to local restaurants and tourist shops and also free local bus service up and down the 5 mile stretch of SPI tourist businesses. We enjoyed dolphins playing in the gulf waters, fisherman wading into the gulf waves to fish, surfers, para-sailors, lots of shells for collecting, horseback riding on the beach, excellent fresh seafood, and the friendly Sapphire staff.

Perfect condo rental in South Padre for families!

  • 5 of 5

This was our very first rental on VRBO. We weren't quite sure what to expect, but this property surpassed anything we could have imagined. The building was immaculate. By far the most beautiful on the island. We could see the two towers from our dolphin cruise in the bay and from Port Isabel. Check in was a breeze. The staff is beyond friendly and gave everyone in our condo a wristband which was necessary to use the facilities during our stay. There were six of us and only five are allowed to hold room keys which was a little challenging, but doable. They furnish luggage carts and a parking pass to use during the stay.

The condo itself was on the 4th floor. The views were spectacular from the living room and master bedroom. I had packed my car full of beach gear, but in reality didn't need to bring anything but sunscreen and swimsuits! They had full setups of folding chairs, beach umbrella, boogie boards, sand castle building toys, floats, coolers, beach towels. We ended up renting an umbrella and two lounge chairs from the rental spot behind the Pearl which shares the same beach access as the Sapphire for $30 for the day and the kids used the folding chairs and umbrella set up in front of ours.

The pool is outstanding! Definitely worth spending time in and they have a hot tub and cabana rentals available as well. The Pearl has a café/bar with a swim up pool that was a hit. The food and drinks were great and you can't beat the convenience.

We didn't make use of all the amenities the condo had to offer during our stay. We should've booked a week! The decorations in the condo were beach themed down to the silverware and so cute. The washer and dryer in our unit was awesome!

Definitely recommend parasailing with Lobo Del Mar activities. That was a highlight of our trip! Pier 19 is a must go as well. It was a fun experience with some of the best food on our trip! Sea Turtle Inc. is worth a visit, but go early before the heat sets in, as it is outdoors. The beach right behind The Sapphire was fun at night to hunt for ghost crabs. The kids had a ball! During the summer fireworks are every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. You can't see them from the condo because they are on the other side of the island, but you can go to the other side of the island for dinner!

Long story short, I highly recommend this condo. The owners go above and beyond to make your stay perfect. The grandparents only want to rent on VRBO from now on!

The condo was beautiful and well stocked with anything you could possibly need. The owner was a pleasure to work with and always responded quickly. The pool area and beach area was perfect. The sand was soft and clean. We will definitely stay here again!

So strict and rude staff

  • 2 of 5

The only plus about this place is how nice the condo is. The owner was also very helpful and quick to respond. But the staff was super rude and unfriendly!! I think they said hi to us one time out of the possibly 20 times we walked past the front desk. We had a ton of issues with the keys not working and had to go get new ones constantly. Every time we had to go up there we had a huge hassle with every person at the front desk. An unpleasant interaction every single time!!

We also had family staying in south Padre at the time and they couldn’t even come to our condo to visit. I get it that they can’t go to the pool or use the facilities but they can’t even come say hi and have dinner with us!? For the price, it was not worth the treatment! We have stayed at many nice hotels before and it was just unbelievable how rude and unfriendly the staff was. I get that we don’t own the condo but it definitely wasn’t a cheap place to rent!! Very disappointing and we wished would have joined our family at the other hotels.

Owner's Response: I am sorry to hear you were not treated in a friendly and helpful way by the Sapphire staff. Usually we receive positive comment about the Sapphire staff. I will make sure I talk to the general manager about this so future guest don’t experience the same. During the spring break season Sapphire has more strict rules as a precaution as a way to try to avoid problems. The Sapphire Association occupancy rules are that the maximum # of people per 3 bedroom condo is 8. I send these rules with the contracts to try to avoid any disappointments like you experienced. On the key issues the door reader unit had a low battery that now has been replaced . We will make a point to have these changed more frequently so it does not occur during a guest stay. I will contact you directly to discuss this in more detail Gary Johnson
