About Barbara Hyman
We are beach-bound Dallasites who love the water. A Mississippi native, Barbara took family vacations to the beautiful beaches of the Florida Panhandle. Robert is a lifelong animal lover who has grown to appreciate the incredible bird life on the Upper Texas Coast.
Barbara Hyman purchased this Condo in 2009
Why Barbara Hyman chose Galveston
We had a small beachfront house on the Bolivar Peninsula that we lost to Hurricane Ike. In some ways, the condo reminds us of the house. The condo complex is located on a quiet part of the beach, like our house was. And the views from our sixth-floor corner spot are also pretty darn nice. What's different? Now we have a dishwasher and a real bedroom!
What makes this Condo unique
Robert loves taking dips in the pool before bedtime. Barbara walks the beach, looking for beach glass. Both enjoy relaxing on one of the balconies, wine in hand, soaking up the view in the Gulf breeze. Moonlight over the water is spectacular.

Quiet yet close to everything
Quiet yet close to everything
This was my first trip to Galveston and we had a blast! The water was perfect and the kids had the most fun I've seen them have on the beach. The condo was so great too! We didn't bring anything for the beach because other reviews said there were toys and chairs there and there was! The beach was a short walk and the condo was located just the right distance from the busyness, more secluded. Three kids and two adults fit very comfortably in the condo. We'll be staying here again.
Could not have been better!
Exactly as shown and promised. Being on the end and having 3 views was so much fun--watching the ships in and out. Perfect location--5 minutes by car to fun on Seawall Blvd, but far enough away that the beach was deserted and quiet. Property employees were professional, helpful and kind. The pool was warm and comfortable, the property very well tended.
Favorite thing about the new kitchen was the electric wine opener, very well stocked. Furniture was well laid out and comfortable. Love the balconies.
Great Easter Weekend!
We were in Texas for some college visits and decided to stick around for the Easter weekend to enjoy some beach time. We found Barbara's condo and it looked perfect for us but the real selling point was all of the sterling reviews. Well they weren't wrong!
Before we arrived, Barbara kindly called to let us know there was some exterior work going on which might disrupt our balcony time on 1 of the days we were there. The noise was actually not all that bad although we did discover a worker on the balcony one morning which was unexpected. More importantly, the communication and heads-up were exactly on point to avoid any real awkward surprises. This was very much appreciated.
Now the condo itself. Fantastic! It was spacious, clean, well stocked with beach chairs & toys and kitchen cookware and utensils. It would have been wonderful not to have to bring our own beach towels but the posting was clear these weren't included. It is just a convenience for a beach condo that those of us flying in from out of state would much enjoy. I am sure this doesn't matter for folks driving in.
We never used the pool but saw a few people enjoying it. Barbara actually has tennis rackets in the condo so the kids enjoyed hitting the ball around some. The boardwalk to the beach was easy and a short walk right to a not crowded area of the beach. We used the gas grills provided to cook dinner one night which was great as well. The wi-fi was decent enough for me to connect to my work network. An unexpected highlight was the telescope which we all enjoyed looking through and could check out the beach, Pleasure Pier and the boats.
All in all, a great trip. We would absolutely stay here again. We now completely understand the stellar ratings!
Beautiful sunset views
We spent a really enjoyable weekend in the condo. It was very clean, nicely furnished and had everything we needed. The multiple balconies were a bonus. We spent most of the day on the gulf side and then moved to the bay side to enjoy the sunset every night. Not having to cross a street to get to the beach was also a huge plus. We'd highly recommend this condo.
Perfect Beachfront Getaway
Cute, spacious condo ON the beach, with heated pool appreciated by the kids. Very clean. Owners were responsive (although there were no problems we needed to contact them about) and very nice. Would definitely recommend.
Area is world-renowned for bird watching, particularly the Bolivar Peninsula, a short ferry ride across Galveston Bay.
