Come Friday Cottages on the Bay

3709 Bayshore Dr. , Bacliff, TX 77518 USA (Show map)


Just another day in Paradise. Located on beautiful Galveston Bay just 4 miles from Kemah. The Bay Room offers you a great place to relax. All of our guests have access to the various facilities and amenities of our property including: large common areas and decks for cooking out, or just a place to relax by the water in a lounge chair; fire pits and gas heaters for chilly nights; 265' lighted fishing pier with boat docking abilities; and use of the community Golf Carts to travel around and see the sites or ride to and from the restaurants and stores close by. We think you will find the graciousness of our Owners and Staff to be the favorite part of your stay with us. Our Event Coordinator is glad to arrange any type of outing or special night in just for you.

Our “Cruise Ship”

5 on November 09, 2017

We have now stayed here 3 times and have already booked our next visit. When we sit on our little deck looking out at the bay, if feels like we are on a cruise ship. Wonderful, quiet place to relax and chill.

We booked our stay several months ago for "Captains Quarter" room since the "Bay Room" wasn't available. When I got my email reminder of our stay two weeks prior to arrival, it said, "Bay Room". I though that's weird, but let it slip away...We were thrilled when we arrived and Pat and Renee said we had been upgraded! Wow! We had a wonderful 3 days and are going back to Pat's brother place for 7 days over Thanksgiving. And have 2 more vacations planned with them. We've been timesharing for 16 years, but will be selling in Spring 2019...this is ou "HAPPY PLACE" and we will return time after time.

Beautiful, loved the Bay Room!

Loved our stay in the Bay Room! The room to stay in, it has the view! Close to Kemah Boardwalk, not too far to go to Galveston. Little kitchenette, will provide you a grill to cook on. Great people! Loved our getaway! Thank you!

Wonderful, wonderful stay. We ladies plan to make it an annual trip (only we'll be coming in April from now on lol ) Incredible sunset's and we even got surprise fireworks Friday night. Thanks again for allowing us to stay. After this third trip it's becoming a real home away from home.

The room was clean and included everything we needed. If we needed anything for our room (towels or whatever), it was just a phone call away and they brought it to us quickly. Everyone we meet and talked to were very nice. Nice place to sit out by the bay and read a book or just enjoy the scenery. Attractions were not far away. We enjoyed out stay and plan on going back.

Beautiful and relaxing

Stayed in the bay room and it was perfect! We basically had the facilities to ourselves. Amazing view, private deck, hot tub and pool. 10 minute drive to Kemah boardwalk! Will absolutely be booking it again!

Like sitting on the balcony of an ocean liner.

This is our third visit. We always reserve the Bay Room. Just like it's name implies it overlooks the Bay. Literally. Outside the room is your own private sitting area over the Bay. Love it! Wonderful owners. Quiet.

The owners are wonderful and easy to work with - any needs and/or problems were resolved with dispatch. We have stayed here before, have recommended it to others and expect to stay here again. Come Friday,...or Monday, or Thursday, they don't care - they'll be ready for you. Cheers.
