About Charlie

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

Why Charlie chose Texas

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 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.

Guestbook comments from the owner


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.

No Place Like Home!

  • 5 of 5

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!

It was fantastic. Very relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time. The cottage was very well stocked. I love the front and back porch with nearby fruit trees. The backyard had grapefruits and bananas and the front yard had lemons on the trees.

The property manager was very friendly and provided excellent customer service. We will return to this property soon.

Great Cottage! We loved it! We'll probably come back soon :)

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is very charming and convenient. We are a team of sailors that were in town for a regatta. The cottage is very well equipped with all those things you need to make dinner and such. We cooked breakfast and dinner both nights we were there and it was so convenient to find all the utensils and things that you'd normally expect when cooking at home. I loved that about this place.

It was also great for the dog. My friend that had a dog brought him over and it was awesome to find that there was a little doggy door for her dog to get in and chill in the laundry room. The glass door to the laundry room made it perfect for him to not feel excluded, but at the same time not be running around and getting in the way inside.

Overall, it was a great experience!

Cute little cottage just minutes away from Kemah Boardwalk. Very quaint furnishings. Comfortable beds. Nice fenced-in back yard. Perfect spot to bring the dog for a quick weekend getaway. We enjoyed our stay.

Diamond in the rough.

  • 5 of 5

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.
