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

Sharlene,

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.

KEMAH COTTAGE - SUPERIOR EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5

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

Cottage is very nice & I felt safe in the cottage, I had a lot of privacy for me & German Shepherd.

Sharlene maintains her cottage well and I think you will be surprised at the loveliness of her home, as well as a feeling of safety and privacy. She also has a wonderful private backyard for your best friend, your dog. Make sure you asked her to plug in the television appropriately before you get there, sometimes plugs and cords, and devices can be quite confusing if you are not used to them. But overall, I say "Thank you Sharlene".

Lovely Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Every year my husband and I make the trip to stay to the Kemah Cottage. The place is always immaculate . This year the owner added some nice extra touches to the cottage. A 50 inch flat screen Tv for the living room and a new dual BBQ pit. It can convert to propane or charcoal. New Patio table and chairs. The back yard is fenced for our two small dogs and they have a doggy door to come and go as they please. The owner who happens to be a animal lover and never charges a pet fee. She said in the past 6 years that the guests with pets always leave the place in tip top shape. The cottage is a unique experience. So close to everything, but has a quite and at home feel to it. Thanks for the continued hospility Sharlene and we look forward to coming back next year.

Great stay. Enjoyed the time I spent at the Cottage.

  • 5 of 5

I found the cottage to be quite relaxing. The cottage was very clean and the accommodationsign were just as they should be. The proximity to the water and the entertainment venues were great. After reading some of the reviews about bad neighbors I was a little aprehensive, but found the neighbors to be just the opposite. They were very nice to me and my family which made my stay very pleasant. My overall experience was quite relaxing and would recommend the cottage to all of my friends and colleagues. I will definitely stay there again. Thank you for the opportunity to stay there.

Cozy Kemah Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This house was definitely home away from home. we went Easter weekend to visit family with my in-laws, which was a perfect place for a small egg hunt for the kiddos. this home is very dog friendly which we loved, after not being able to board our dog we were relieved that we were able to bring her last min. the back yard was a perfect sized for the kids to run around in and we loved what it was fenced in for them. the beds were comfy and large allowing my husband son and i to fit perfectly in 1 room. everything was fully stocked plenty of towels and bedding. home was clean with plenty of seating. overall we loved our stay in kemah and will choose to stay for future visits
