traveler reviews for this kemah house rental

A family oasis close to Kemah~ we will be back!

Review submitted: April 7, 2014   Date of arrival: April 4, 2014

After reading the reviews, we thought we'd give this place a try, as we we're looking for someplace that allowed dogs and was close to Kemah/NASA. Don't let the unincorporated neighborhood scare you! As soon as you pull into the driveway, you instantly feel secluded. The house itself has a covered patio in the front and back. We we're pleasantly surprised at the size of the rooms and the amenities....nothing fancy, but everything works and the place is cozy and comfortable. Our dogs loved playing in the backyard or lounging on the front porch, which had a little gate so they couldn't escape. We BBQed out back and really enjoyed ourselves. It was a five minute drive to Kemah and about 20 minutes to NASA. We drove through many of the small towns along the bay and found great places to eat and drink. There IS the rooster next door who alerts you to the break of day....but we just turned on the a/c and couldn't here him. Our kids were begging to come back before we even left. Best bang for your buck!

Mixed bag

Review submitted: April 1, 2014   Date of arrival: March 20, 2014

The inside of the home is very nice. Some great antiques and interesting pieces of furniture. The home is located in Bacliff, a few minutes from Kemah. Close proximity to Houston and Galveston Island. Johnson Space Center is also near as well.

The area is unincorporated. The property owner had told us before we rented. This means that there are really no zoning laws. The area looks fairly rough with many run down mobile homes and tin shacks. We made the mistake of leaving a car on the street one of the first nights and it was broken in to. Three jackets stolen from the trunk. One over $400. The lawn ie weed patch hadn't been mowed in months. Outside furniture was all dirty and we had to clean it to use it.

The rooster wasn't an issue. In the front bedroom there isn't a door going into the bathroom, just a curtain. Also we couldn't seem to get any cold water in the shower, so it was very hot. The TV has basic service, no ESPN, TNT, or TBS to watch the NCAA tournament. There are a number of remotes with no instructions, so you better know how to change inputs or you won't get the Direct TV to work.

We made the best of it but I wouldn't rent the property again.

Recommended for: sight seeing

Owners response: We are very sorry to hear about the vehicle that was broken into. The cottage has been a vacation rental for over 4 years now, and my personal home for over 5 years prior to this incident; with no problems. We are curious to know what the police report details?

The cottage provides a 50 ft. of driveway with motion sensor lights and is very private from the street. It is so unfortunate, that these type of incidents happen all over the country. Unfortunately, we as the landlord, have no control over criminal activities and highly recommend anyone renting anywhere, to file a police report immediately, so the neighborhood does not suffer. The location is great, the cottage is well situated, and it always gets good reviews. The renter's insurance, with proper documentation, may have covered this unfortunate loss of property, IF, the guest contacts the owner.

On the advertisement, it is clearly stated; basic cable is offered along with free Roku and Netflix, and instructions are provided on the back of the remote control for the Roku, plus the use of the remote for the TV is basic.

The door to the bathroom it is oval & not a standard door shape; this is why there are curtains and they look fine & serve their purpose. The yard is manicured after the each winter, and is sometimes not completely pristine.

We, strive to keep our guests safe and comfortable. We wish to extend our deepest apologies for this isolated incident.

Best New Year's retreat ever

Review submitted: January 5, 2014   Date of arrival: December 29, 2013

My husband and i booked the "cottage" as a special treat for the second half of our two week vacation to the Houston area. The cottage was an absolute delight. The pictures are just what we got and it was very clean. Plenty of extra linens, towels, pantry items, cleaning supplies, even a stocked medicine cabinet. We even found a blow dryer straightening and curling irons. I never expected to find such a relaxing hideaway. We had several friends visit and all were very impressed. The beds were comfortable, the water pressure was fine. The porches were a great place to relax. We were able to view the fireworks display from the nearby public boat launch. This was everything that I expected and far more. Some mentioned in their reviews that the local area might be a bit down trodden but I never felt unsafe. Several neighbors do have roosters but we found it amusing. We highly recommend this property. The owner was very helpful when we realized that we had left a medication in the refrigerator. She contacted the cleaning folks and we were able to retrieve everything just as we had left it.
