Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Kemah:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
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.
