About Barbara Sarkis
We met in upstate New York (BRRR!!!) 38 years ago and gradually made our way south. We moved to the Houston area 22 years ago and are very happy to now live on sunny Galveston Island. Our two children are also glad to be here, living on "island time."
Barbara Sarkis purchased this Condo in 2014
Why Barbara Sarkis chose Galveston
The view, the view, the view! Plus, for some hurricane protection, we wanted steel & concrete on the seawall, and not far from the 'action!' This is our second unit in the same building. We bought our first unit in 2007 and now live in it. After 12 years, we still believe this is an awesome location with a view that is hard to beat! We are very excited that the beach has been rebuilt on this part of the island. There is a set of stairs directly across from the building that take us right down to the beach; it's so convenient!
What makes this Condo unique
You will fall in love with the view from the moment you step into the unit! When you are not down on the beach, which you can access directly across the street, you will want to spend as much time as possible on the 24-foot balcony people watching, dolphin watching, or just relaxing with a cool drink, listening to the crashing waves. If you get tired of watching the waves, watch the cable TV; the TV in the living room also has Netflix. If you can't totally disconnect, the unit has high-speed wireless internet with a secure login.
100% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 7 days before arrival date.
Area to improve
The fence is very difficult for a family has small kids, we could enjoy stay in the balcony as kids easily can go through the fence and fell down.
Appreciate if you change or add anything to prevent an accident to happen.
Our home away from home
We have been going to Galveston for several years with our grandchildren as a family tradition and staying at Barbara's By the Sea. We're so comfortable staying there it's like our home away from home. Barbara and her husband are so kind and available if necessary when needed. We always look forward to our stay and enjoy it tremendously. We're already looking forward to next year.
Girls Trip was a Blast!
Nice get away and this place was spacious for our party of 5. Kitchen was stocked with everything you needed. The view of the beach was priceless! Would definitely stay again.
Glad our place worked out well for your "girls getaway!" Hope you'll remember us for your next visit to Galveston Island!
Property was very nice and Barbara was very helpful. Everything was clean when we arrived. Balcony was great and we had our morning coffees on there. We had trouble with the cable box at night and Barbara came straight over to help! Located right across the beach.
So glad I got to meet your delightful family! Please come again soon and be sure to ask for your returning-guest discount. Barbara
