About Tim and Dianne Mathieu

My husband and I grew up in Portland, Maine and still spend a good part of the year there. We love the ocean and St. Thomas was a natural extension of our lifestyle.

Tim and Dianne Mathieu purchased this condo in 1998

Why Tim and Dianne Mathieu chose East End

We purchased this condo in 1998 as a second home after visiting and following in love with St. Thomas and surrounding islands. We realized after visiting numerous islands in the Caribbean that they all offered nice beaches, restaurants and friendly people. The ultimate decision came down to the fabulous view from Sapphire Village and in particular, our unit.

Beautiful View

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for allowing me to stay in your beautiful condo. It is exactly how it is described, clean, nicely decorated, beautiful breathtaking views from the deck, never got tired of them.

Nice treat to have ice already In freezer, it's the little things. Perfect location to get to Red Hook by Safarri, did not rent a car but had no problem getting around. People in complex very friendly. Sapphire Bar and Grill has a great chef, Lacey, who made some fabulous meals.

You are very lucky to have this condo and willing to share. Look forward to returning.

Absolutely Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and I enjoyed every minute of our stay at Dianne and Tom's lovely condo! We absolutely loved it. The place was exactly as beautifully decorated, clean, and designed as expected/advertised. The pictures show a perfect reflection of this lovely property. From the awesome balcony view, to the beautiful kitchen and dining area, to the apparently renovated his and hers sink and bathroom area, it was just like a picture in a book. It was fully stocked with everything you could think to need as we stayed for 31 days. We cooked, we enjoyed short walks to the most beautiful beach on the island (Sapphire beach) and enjoyed lunch on the balcony overlooking the marina sometimes even breakfast. Not to mention the bed was so comfortable and the room had plenty of space with two closets, plenty of room for storing belongings and a window with another beautiful view of the marina and beach. The maintenance office is so conveniently located just across the way and we had our vehicle parked right out front no problem. We look forward to staying there again in the future. We are now calling it our St Thomas home.

Amazing property

  • 5 of 5

First off I would like to thank the owners for allowing us to stay in their lovely condo. I have been to St Thomas many times and this was my first stay at this rental condo. There was no detail left out for someone on vacation. We arrived and there was actually some coffee in the room. The view is amazing and the condo looked exactly like the pictures. And the neighbors were very helpful. I thought some items were left in the room after we departed and the owners were so very helpful with this manner. I have recommended this condo to many of my friends and hope to stay here again.

My husband and I have now stayed two times at this lovely condo. We felt right at home. Everything we could have needed was provided for our comfort needs. The view is fantastic and the residents are friendly and helpful.Steps away from the crystal pool and Sapphire Grill. Complete with beautiful weather...what more could one ask for?!

Myself along with 3 friends had a great stay on St Thomas. The weather was superb and all around a great experience. We traveled to St John as well as the BVI. The restaurants on St Thomas were also very pleasing with great service and great food. The condo is located within walking distance to the beach and marina, which was perfect! The condo was in great shape and provided everything we needed.

Great Condo, will return!!

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the best Condos in Sapphire Viilage. I have stayed here several times over the last decade and have seen the improvments and renovations that have been undertaken. In addition to having everything a guest would want in a condo stay, it is strategically located near the pool/restaurant/laundry room and an easy walk to the beach. The balcony view is fantastic, including the full marina. Its fun to read the guest book every time I return to see how many people have come and see how much they have loved it too!!!! I would recommend this place to everyone!!!
