I am a local business owner who has lived on the Island since 2007.

Nicki Huprich purchased this house in 2013

The previous owner called me to list this home for sale and the minute I walked-in I fell in love. There is something special about the character this old home has and you can't beat being so close to everything Galveston has to offer.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from a three night stay in the Seahorse Cottage. What a great little house. The room are spacious and the house is very well equipped. We Plan a family getaway for the women in our family every summer to Galveston and have stayed at quite a few different houses and hotels and would highly recommend that you stay here. You are basically in the thick of things. It's a short walk to the beach and Sea Wall, also the Pleasure pier and many restaurants. We love the upper deck where you have a great view of the water. If you prefer you have a fully stocked full size kitchen. There were 10 adults and we had plenty of room and comfortable beds. We plan to try to return to the Seahorse cottage on our next visit to Galveston.

perfect for us

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for a family vacation with kids and had the best time. The house is an easy walk to the beach even for preschoolers. The flowers are gorgeous. The upstairs deck is so nice in the evening light. The kitchen well equipped. We fit six adults and seven little ones from ages 3-8 by bringing five sleeping mats for camping.

A perfect spot!

  • 5 of 5
Overall a great place. Nicki was responsive and the home is beautiful, well-maintained, and accommodating. I loved the code access so we never had to worry about keeping track of a key. We slept 7 adults comfortably and had a great weekend. The only minor issues we had were (1) the neighborhood bar was a bit noisy the Thursday we arrived (motorcylcles, people talking), and (2) the pans in the kitchen were old and the teflon was flaking. Otherwise it was a perfect stay. Would definitely recommend it!
