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.

Mini Vacation

3.8 on August 10, 2018

I chose Come Friday Cottages on the Bay for its location, and Pat could not have been more welcoming. After a day trip to Galveston then a day trip to Kemah, coming "home" to our cottage was the perfect place to relax and enjoy quiet time. We had a great mini vacation and a wonderful time.

Great place

Everything was very nice. Clean & comfy. Will be going again. Owners very friendly. Lots near by to do. Fix your own breakfast but no dining on the property. You can do your own. Full kitchen & bar b q on site.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for the review. This last room to get a kitchen was the Bay Room and that has been two years now. We do provide a variety of cereals, milk, juice, water, a Keurig coffee pot with all the fixings, and popcorn for that late night snack. Also we recently started providing a snack basket in some rooms. See you soon!

The grounds and staff are amazing. Fishing wasn't good and thats the reason we went so we were a little disappointed. A great place to relax though.

Innkeeper Response
Oh my! Can't wait till we learn how to control those crazy fish. Sorry they didn't show up during your trip. Happy that you enjoyed your stay. Thanks for choosing us!

Quaint, quiet, and comfortable. This is a perfect place to stay alone or with a family. The kitchen in the Salty Gypsy is big and accommodating for meal preparation. The bedrooms were nice with really comfortable beds. My family enjoyed staying here very much!

Another Great Stay!

Love the Hosts and their property! Only disappointment was that the pool wasn't up to par! Great views, comfy beds, plenty of coffee and other supplies. We'll be back!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for choosing to stay with us. We did have to replace the pool liner. Sounds easy, but not so much. Took longer than we thought. Sorry you had to experience that time. It is all fixed now, with new steps as well, and looks great. Hope to see you back soon.

The Captain's Quarters

This awesome room has been set-up to make you feel like you are sleeping in a wooden ship's hull. The colors are darker stained wood (original to the property) and rich navy blues. The lighting in the room actually simulates an under water feel. So cool! This room has a great little kitchenette and fridge so you can cook in house if you would like. The bathroom is pirate themed and super cute with a great mix of appeal for all the sea lovers and if you like to sleep, this room can be totally shut off from exterior lighting. You could sleep for days! The bed is super cozy with extra plush pillows and blankets and a TV overhead. And the Captain's Quarters offers a second TV in the living area.
