About Nicki Huprich

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

Nicki Huprich purchased this house in 2013

Why Nicki Huprich chose Galveston

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.

What makes this house unique

This home is close to it all. You do not need a car once you get here.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Clean, price is right, fresh flowers gave it a nice touch, good beds, very good stay, would rent again.

Fabulous Family Time

  • 5 of 5
My siblings and our spouses plan a long weekend get-away every year. This year we chose Galveston and this lovely home! The Seahorse Cottage offered everything we wanted! The house is close to everything...not to mention a corner watering hole within walking distance! We will consider this house again for our future trips! Thanks for everything!!!

Owner's Response: Barbara- I am very happy you and your siblings had a great stay and were able to enjoy everything close to the home. I do hope you will choose The Seahorse Cottage again! If you decide to stay on the west end next time I also have a home located in Sea Isle called The Sand Crab, VRBO#626804.

Note to future renters: The corner watering hole she is referring to is The Island Pier Club, located a very short walk from the home. The Longboard is a public Pool Bar & Grill which is also in walking distance to the home.

MY GROUP OF LADY FRIENDS WERE NOT HAPPY HAPPY WITH THIS HOME!!!!

  • 3 of 5
First of all, I gave the house 3 starts because the beds were clean and comfortable and the roof top deck was amazing.
However, we (5 lady friends) have rented many homes for vacations but this was the first where we had to provide our own toilet paper. Also, there is NO warm or hot water in the shower of the main bathroom. There is only street parking and if you get home late it could be a problem. There is a alley way with a garage but it's detached and we did not have the code to the lock on the garage door. The rental agreement stated we should place the trash in the can in the garage but once again...we did not have the code to the lock. There was no hand soap in the bathrooms. The area rugs had sticker burrs so we couldn't walk bare footed in the house. The yard was in terrible shape (overgrown) when we arrived on Friday but low and behold...the lawn service arrived bright and early on Saturday and moved, trimmed and sawed limbs while we were trying to sleep and enjoy out coffee. Spoke to the owner and she was surprised since she had ask them to come on Monday. However, the house should never be rented with the yard in such horrible condition.
The street is a one way street which creates a problem when trying to get onto to it but we finally got used to it. The only TV in the living room did not work either.

Overall, I think it's a super cute house but needs more personal touches.

Owner's Response: Paula- Thank you for your review!
For future renters who read this review please know that in the rental agreement you sign and in my check-in information it states paper goods (i.e. toilet paper, paper towels, etc. ) dish detergent, laundry detergent, coffee, etc are not provided. You will sign a rental agreement prior to your reservation being confirmed which states this and I send you the check-in information prior to your arrival which reminds you to pack these items.
The check-in sheet also states that ALL codes are the same. The renter never contacted me to inquire about the code for the gate or garage so I could have told her this; but it is stated on the check-in information you receive.
I apologize about the sticker birds. I do not know if these were there prior to the guest arrival or if they came in the house during their stay. I will make sure my cleaning lady pays extra attention to the one area rug in the home.
As for the yard, we had heavy rains the week before therefore the lawn guys were off schedule and due to the rain the lawn did over grow. I did ask the lawn guy to come on Monday instead. I apologize for the overgrown yard and for them coming during your stay. That is unacceptable.
I was never made aware of the TV or hot water not working during the renters stay. The rental agreement ask that you inform me of any issues during your stay so if they are correctable I can correct them. There was a renter in the home the weekend before and they did not notify me of either issue. I will get them corrected ASAP.
In all, the rental agreement and check-in information sheet have all the information you will need to make your stay pleasant and enjoyable. If you have issues during your stay PLEASE contact me. I live and work on the Island. Myself or someone can correct the issue immediately.
It is important to me that you have a great vacation and experience so please please please contact me immediately so we can get any issues resolved.
Thank you...and I look forward to you staying at The Seahorse Cottage!

Follow-up to this response regarding TV and hot water: I checked the home after the guest left and the hot water was working fine. It was burning hot! The TV was set on the input mode for the DVD player. I switched it to cable and it worked fine. If any issues arise during your stay, please call or text me and they can be fixed quickly.

Fantastic

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

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.
