About Barbara

As a young girl, she and her brothers spent summers at their family’s beach house on the north shore of Long Island, New York. After establishing a successful career, she began searching for waterfront property where she could spend time with her own family and pass on some of her fondest childhood memories.

Thanksgiving Get Away

  • 4 of 5

My friend and I took our sons for some fathers and son time on Thanksgiving. The fishing was good right out the back door. The home had everything we needed. Very comfortable and enjoyed our time there very much. Barbara was awesome to work with. She responded quickly and answered all of our question. The neighbors were all very nice and friendly. Would definitely stay again.

Great accommodations for our four teen-age grandchildren and us

  • 5 of 5

Plenty of room. Everything clean and ready. Comfy beds for everyone. Fully functional kitchen with all basic appliances -- stove, oven, frig, dishwasher. Cozy 50's atmosphere. Safe. Quiet. Good fishing off the deck. 5 minute drive to Terramar Beach--wind, waves, sand and uncrowded. It was the perfect getaway for us. The 25 min. drive to the East Island and the tourish attractions was no drawback for us.
