SNOWBIRDS SPECIAL-Jan-Feb 1650.00 The Kemah Cottage offers a unique setting quite different from a beach house or condo built and furnished with love meant for people to enjoy. The home is extremely comfortable offering antique furnishings and antique fixtures everywhere, with 2 king size beds, and a Lazy boy queen sleeper sofa that has a inflatable mattress for extra comfort. Palm tree landscaping provides privacy from the road and a large fenced backyard with a doggy door. There is a front and back patio both covered to enjoy your morning coffee with covered parking.
The cottage is fully equipped with internet and walking distance to a Family Dollar. The Kemah Cottage is located a few blocks from Galveston Bay, 5 min. to Kemah Boardwalk and 15 min. to Galveston Island and Moody Gardens. It is very close to Nasa Space Center and about 20 min. from Hobby Airport and about 30 min. to Downtown Houston.

I grew up in North West Houston around 15 years ago and moved to the Kemah/Clearlake area never looking back. People seem to be more laid back and friendly in this area. The Kemah/Clearlake area is the 3 largest boating capita in the United States so if you enjoy power boating or sail boating this is a nice place to live. This area is also very popular with antique car collectors, motorcycle enthusiast and live entertainment at restaurants and bars. The list goes on and on of thing to see and do in this area.
Charlie purchased this cottage in 2006
I purchased this home from an architect. It is my understanding this home had a small fire and the architect spent sereral years restoring the home. This guy had great attention to detail and is an antique lover. Every where you look you will see interesting antique fixtures, with solid hardwood floors that came out of estate homes and ceiling beams though out the home. I fell in love with the home because it is so unique. Actually I purchased the home for myself and have lived in it the last 4 years. This is why the home is nicely furnished, well equipped and feels like home.
This property is very comfortable, charming, romantic, and cozy, and private from the street. If you have pets this is the vacation rental you want to book your pet will love the front and back covered patio and the cute backyard fully fenced. Guess What! 'No Pet Charge' this is a huge savings.
The things to do and places to go are endless all within 15-20 mins from the cottage. If you book I know you will enjoy your stay.
We both enjoyed your beautiful home with all the necessities of a home away from home. We had a relaxing time because the house is so cozy and homey. My husband said he would post comments on Yelp to let people know about the rental.
From the moment we walked into the cottage, I knew we had found the perfect vacation home! The surroundings and decor reminded me so much of the home I grew up in. The beds are super comfortable (I wanted to take the one I slept in home with me lol), it is very spacious and comfortable and Sharlene has pretty much thought of everything. The kitchen is well equipped with all the necessities and a lil more, everything was very clean and neat. We had lots of towels (never enough of those at a hotel!), and the washer and dryer made my life easier with two children, we were able to come home with clean clothes instead of suitcases full of dirty clothes lol.
I am not a hotel-type person--too unfriendly and impersonal for me. The cottage has personal flavor throughout it. There were so many unique things to look at that we spent the first few hours while unpacking just checking things out. There was on old wooden ironing board just like the one my Mom said she used when she was growing up, and my Great Uncle and Mom both enjoyed guessing where the pieces of furniture might have come from and the history behind them, and of course, the kids were after the more modern amenities, t.v. with satellite and computer. As for me, I just took a deep breath and let it go slowly because I felt comfortable and relaxed! I knew even it happened to rain the entire time we were here (which it didn't) we would all still be comfortable and happy.
This is a place that I could return to time and time again and the fact that it is so close to Kemah, Galveston, Clear Lake and Houston makes it even more appealing. Rest assured, if and when I find myself back in this area, I will be calling Miss Sharlene for another stay at her cottage.
Thank you again, Miss Sharlene, for a perfect vacation getaway, it made for a PERFECT VACATION!
My boyfriend and I decided to come to the Galveston area for a long weekend and wanted to bring our three dogs (children), and the kemah cottage made that happen. The backyard was spacious and secure so the dogs could play outside while we were gone without us worrying; the back door also has a small doggie door which was great for our older dog, as she could go in and out as she needed. The cottage itself is not in the most fancy of neighborhoods, but when you step into the cottage, none of that matters. You are in your own world. The covered parking is secure as well, and the cottage has both front and back porches with sitting areas and charcoal grill on the back. Inside the cottage it is so cute! It has hardwood floors with antique furniture, and everything you could need, including a washer and dryer, which came in handy after a day at the beach. The a/c is window units, which is fine but may take some getting used to for those who are accustomed to central air. They cooled well and we were very rarely hot unless we had just got in from being outside too long. There are two king beds, and OMG they are comfortable. So much better than hotel mattresses! The kemah cottage location was ideal for us. We enjoyed the kemah boardwalk more than the pleasure pier, and it is about a 3-5 min drive To the boardwalk. It's about a 20 min drive to the Galveston pleasure pier, which was not too bad of a drive and definitely nice since we don't like to be in the middle of all the craziness of downtown all the time. This was a relaxing and worry-free getaway for us because of the kemah cottage. The owner is also really nice and let us run back by after check out when I left my sweatshirt, very sweet lady.
My husband, son, dog and I stayed 2 nights very comfortably! the kitchen is well equipped and the back yard is great for grilling and the dog! Quiet neighborhood and a quick drive to the Kemah boardwalk. We enjoyed our stay very much!
We rented cottage for girls weekend, we had a blast. Cottage was so warm and inviting, Charlie the owner even suggested places for us to go. Very well furnished, plenty if everything. Yard is well taken care of with squirills and birds every morning. Neighborhood was really nice. Well for sure rent again. Beds are like sleeping on clouds... Loved it
First let me say we have never rented a house before so we had some reservations, however, after speaking to Sharlene I felt comfortable and knew everything would be great. Also, I do not do “reviews” but wanted everyone to know what a great place this is.
We arrived the afternoon of May 27th. Our initial impression coming into the driveway was how peaceful and private the yard was. It was separated from the street by loads of shrubs and trees and the covered front porch is huge and well furnished. The front yard is decorated with handmade stepping stones and it a wonderful place just to relax, have coffee and watch the little bit of traffic go by.
Then we opened the front door. My jaw dropped and I said “WOW”. The place is beautiful and much more than reflected in the photos and descriptions. It is beautifully furnished with loads of character and imagination. Antiques and high end furnishings abound. There is a complete living room, dining room, kitchen and service porch with a washer and dryer.
The kitchen is very adequate and fully stocked with utensils and all the things you need to make a nice meal. Put in a bag of groceries and you are ready to go. The appliances are an electric stove, French door refrigerator, and dishwasher. Is it well stocked with all the dishes, cups, glasses, silverware, etc. that you could possibly need.
The two bedrooms are located one in the front by the living room and one off the back off the kitchen. The front room has the biggest bed I have ever seen and it is comfortable and definitely a high end mattress. The furniture is all antiques and it is decorated perfectly. The attached bath has a tub and a separate shower and the room is huge. Again it has all of the things you need for a stay including linens for the bath and the bed.
The back bedroom (where I stayed) had a regular king size bed that was very comfortable. Again all high end linens and it too had antiques and was a huge room. It had an attached bath with a shower only and it was great. The back bed room also had French doors on to the back covered porch. The porch overlooked a nicely landscaped and totally fenced backyard. The porch was furnished with a table and chairs and a bar-b-q grill. Outside, both front and back, were like private gardens.
Overall the Kemah Cottage was comfortable, quiet, well-furnished and just a nice slice of heaven. We had no issues at all and are just waiting to go back again. It also has Wi-Fi and Cable
From the moment I pulled into the driveway, I knew I was going to love this place! The lush terrain, fruit trees, eclectic decor in the yard were all very warm and welcoming. The front porch was so inviting, I wanted to just throw down my suitcases and pull up a seat.
Upon entering the home, the hard wood floors drew us into a very comfortable, yet stylish home. We couldn't wait to unpack and get settled into this lovely place to enjoy all it had to offer.
Sipping our coffee on the back lanai was so nice. This home and yard are very quiet, with nice breezes flowing throughout the day and night. We enjoyed the lanai so much, we even had a few dinners out there!
The home is filled with a lot of love, and beautiful trinkets as well as furnishings to keep the curious mind intrigued. The owners must have spent many years selecting just the right pieces, to make this cute place the perfect vacation home.
Also, this place has a great location. It is centrally located to all the wonderful places my family and I wanted to see. The beach, Moody Gardens, Texas City Dike, Clear Lake and of course the Kemah Boardwalk. We were able to go out for our adventures, dining, and local farmers market, and then within no time, we back to this sweet little hidden gem.
I cannot say enough about this place, it was very clean, well supplied, even with a washer and dryer, which came in handy after our beach adventures.
We love this retreat and plan to book it year after year! Thanks Sharlene
