Overview

Galveston House Rental Photos and Description

Prices are not firm. Want to book a last minute get-a-way? Make an offer!

This home is all about the location. If you want to be near the hottest things Galveston has to offer, this is the home for you. Once you get here a car is not necessary. There is a bike rental shop a block away so you can rent a bike to get to anything not in walking distance.

The Seahorse Cottage is located 1 block from the Seawall. You are a short walk/bike ride to Pleasure Pier, dining, shopping and downtown. Coming to Galveston for an event such as Mardi Gras, Lone Star Rally, Dickens on the Strand or Art Walk? The Seahorse cottage is the place to stay.

When you are not out and about enjoying Galveston events and scenery you will enjoy the Gulf views from the top deck of The Seahorse Cottage.

Be sure to watch the video tour for the home and the video tour to view the walk to the Seawall.

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.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Seahorse Cottage. Great location with plenty of things to do. Cute house with plenty of room and well stocked. Great bath tub for soaking and large bath towels. Great to vacation in the comfort of a home.

We had a wonderful visit. The cottage was clean, cute and well stocked. Beds were comfy and the decor fitting for a beach side cottage. It was a short walk to the beach and close to downtown shopping too. My only suggestion is that if you want real glass wine glasses, bring your own and I could not find a strainer (so if you are making noodles you might want to bring one along). Baths were stocked with nice big towels and a nice deep soaking tub. The owner was a pleasure to deal with and I will be happy to return. Really a nice, private way to vacation and so much better than a hotel.

Owner's Response: Tamyra- Thank you for the feedback. I am sorry about the wine glasses. I will have real wine glasses at the property tomorrow. There was a strainer there :(. I will get a new one for the house. So your next stay, it should have all you need! Look forward to you returning to The Seahorse Cottage.

Mardi Gras Fun

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the Seahorse Cottage! We also enjoyed the outdoor area and the elevated deck. The location is close to the Seawall and the Strand. We felt right at home and would love to stay there 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.
