I grew up in North West Houston and around 15 years ago I moved to the Kemah/Clearlake area and never looked back. People seem to be more laid back and friendly in this area. The Kemah/Clearlake area is one of the 3 largest boating capitals 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 has live entertainment at restaurants and bars. The list goes on and on of things to see and do in this area.
Charlie purchased this Cottage in 2006
Why Charlie chose Bacliff
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.
What makes this Cottage unique
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 which is fully fenced. Guess What? 'No Pet Charge' That 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.

KEMAH COTTAGE - SUPERIOR EXPERIENCE
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
No central a/c , three small window units not enough to cool the house, beds and bathrooms not clean
This is a pet friendly property with a well fenced back yard. Pantry was stock with coffee, filters, cooking oil , salt, pepper, etc.. Overall the property was clean and well kept. Very disappointed about the a/c situation. The three small window units could not keep the house cool. The beds in both bedrooms had large amounts of hair on the sheets, leading me to believe the sheets had not been changed since the last time someone had stayed there. The mattress on the pullout is adequate at best. The shower in the first bedroom also contained large quantities of hair in it too. If the place would have had central a/c (or properly sized window units) and clean sheets and bathrooms I would have given it four stars.
Clean Comfy Cottage
The cottage is vintage, clean, and in a mixed housing area. Stayed 3 days with our dogs and enjoyed our stay with no issues. The beds are comfy and the bathrooms are large. The WiFi is strong, and there is Netflix service on the flat screen. There is covered parking and a tall privacy fence around the property. Good location to Kemah, 5 minutes, and 30 minutes to Galveston.
Amazing cozy cottage
Absolutely enjoyed our visit! Love all the antiques. Nice cozy king size beds. Will definitely book this cottage again in the future. Fully functional kitchen. Bbq grill that uses charcoal or propane. Fully fenced back yard for our little dog. He definitely enjoyed the back yard. (He's an apartment baby)
House was very clean when we arrived.
The cottage was very clean with beautiful wooden floors and nicely decorated. Kitchen stocked well.
We enjoyed over 3 weeks in this cute two
Bedroom cottage. Convenient to many attractions. My husband and I rode our bikes the scenic route to the boardwalk a few times. We also enjoyed morning and evening strolls through the neighborhood. The cottage is also walking distance to a restaurant on Galveston bay. We never ate their but enjoyed the walk and watching people use the boat dock.
Home away from Home
It was a home away from home with a very cozy atmosphere. We stayed five weeks and enjoyed how close to everything it was.
The Kemah Cottage is just a few blocks from Galveston Bay, 5 minutes to the Kemah Boardwalk. A 15 minute drive to Galveston Island and Moody Gardens. It is very close to the NASA Space Center and about 20 min. from Hobby Airport. A 30 minute drive to Downtown Houston.
The Kemah Boardwalk offers Holiday Events for every season as well as Fireworks every Friday night Rock the Dock and Jazz Fest offering live music with well know performers in Texas. There are 9 popular restaurants to choose from and lots of shopping. You and your family will enjoy the huge amusement park featuring the Bullet Roller Coaster, the Boardwalk Beast (one extreme boat ride) and the water fountain. Children love to play in it all day. There is a train that will take you from one end of the boardwalk to the other. You can spend a few days eating, shopping and looking at many power boats and sail boats coming from Clear Lake into the Galveston Bay from the boardwalk.
You can pick up a Magazine called the Scene at any local restaurant or bar. This magazine will let you know about everything that is going on in the area.
