About Donna Robinson
My name is Donna Robinson. I Have lived in Surfside, Tx for 16 years. I am self-employed, and have worked for 16 years, for several homeowners, cleaning and managing their homes. I also work for the moving company located in Angleton, and have worked there for 15 years. I have 3 children who are all grown.
Donna Robinson purchased this Cottage in 1997
Why Donna Robinson chose Surfside Beach
A friend showed me Surfside Beach 18 years ago. I had never seen the ocean before and was instantly drawn to the ocean when we came to the top of the bridge. I had never seen homes on stilts. This little community located right on the ocean was so quaint and friendly, that I fell in love instantly. I work, live and play on this island. I raised my babies here and now they are grown, so now I can share paradise with others.
What makes this Cottage unique
My home is on stilts, that is so unique to me. My house is also located where you can watch the ships coming or going from the Port jetties. You can sit on my front porch and watch the dolphins play or watch the bird migrations. I am located steps from the beach. We are located 50 miles from Houston or 40 miles from Galveston.

Absolutely beautiful location right on beach
We so enjoyed being right on the beach. Drinking coffee on porch. We put our umbrella on corner of porch front sun first thing in the morning. I strongly suggest buying a canopy for the beach itself. The wind is so strong an umbrella is difficult to deal with. Also we stopped at the local gas station and bought an unlimited beach access pass for $12. So totally worth it. We were able to go on beach every day to park right in front of the house so we didn’t have others right in front of us. During the week was quiet and peaceful. The weekend was busy and noisy. The reason I didn’t give 5 stars is location of parking is a bit of a walk to haul stuff plus the mattresses really need to be updated. I will say I’m really picky about my mattress as I have a bad back. The cottage is cute and has everything you need. It was clean so no complaints there. Donna is sweet and easy to reach. We’d stay again. The beach is perfect. We saw dolphins every morning off our porch.
Perfect for our needs!
This is the cottage we have been searching for! Not fancy, but extremely comfortable. The ONLY down side was the access, but even that was just a little inconvenient. Most of the boardwalk leading to the house was in excellent shape and the motion lights were a plus. We we're able to park in front of the house on the beach which made unloading/loading much easier. We are already checking our calendars for dates to return. It was just the two of us this time but we will be back and will bring the grandchildren! Being dog friendly was the icing on the cake! I didn't meet the owner, but did speak with her on the phone and found her to be extremely nice.
So glad you had a good time !
See you again soon
Beach is fantastic and location is perfect!!! Cottage is exactly what you need since you spend all of your time outside!

the sea hag
we had a really good time we thought weather was pretty reasonable for the dates we stayed upper 70 s to low 80 s previous reviews said walk was a little long a little exercise doesn t hurt anyone and u can drive right on the beach side would we come back yes
It was so good to meet y'all ! Glad you had a good time .
Felt like a private beach!
Fun, long weekend at the Seahagg! Great time here! Absolutely right on the beach!
Read previous: Yes, a trek to the house. Yes, parking could be challenging, esp when it's busy (no problems for us). Yes, it's not the Ritz, but yes it's perfect for the "right" people!
A quaint cottage with it's own unique personality. Bonus: Yard is fenced in (perfect for a dog that doesn't TRY to escape). Gate and hose-off station at the top of the stairs. Living room and 2 bedrooms are carpeted (a "first" for us with beach rentals). Sunroom is great with the daybed, table & chairs. The living room is cozy with a couch, loveseat, coffee table, and TV (think antenna TV?). There's no WiFi, so either "unplug" or set up a hotspot. Kitchen area has shelves for a pantry, and a bar and an island for counter space. Thoughtfully, the owner provided some bottled water (we had brought some, but saved a trip to the store, & we left an unopened 3-gallon jug to "pay it forward"). Recommend: bring your own sponge - the one left there was stinky, but I brought a new one. The shower is awesome! (You can wash your hair and not hit your elbows on the walls!). A strategically-located mirror above the toilet allows you to see yourself blow-drying your hair (outlet by washing machine is too far from the sink vanity mirror). Dryer is behind doors in the bathroom, FYI. The doors to the bedrooms are frames with cloth panels, & the rooms have shutters that open to the main living areas (bedroom noises WILL be heard, LoL -though the drone from window units muffles sounds!). No complaints about the queen mattress in the master. Disappointed that the 2nd bedroom had only a twin (thought it was a double or queen, or perhaps had a trundle)- the daybed "saved" us.
Our weather: warm & sunny, clouds & rain, wind & cold. Strategically-located heaters warmed the house nicely, and the window units cooled effectively (keep the entry door shut!). Area under the house provided cover from the rain & a respite from the wind to enjoy the sea air and sounds of the waves outdoors though the dunes obscure the waterview.
Comparisons: Dos Vistas, 2BR. On the water; "newer," better parking, lacked coziness & personality, by the jetty, ramp vs stairs. Beach Bunny, 2BR (next door!), on the water; also a trek, but more boardwalk. Seahagg wins for us for the sunroom, fence, and the area under the house! Motion-activated lights were great!
Thank you so much Donna! Great price, awesome stay! Hope this helps readers!
Glad everyone enjoyed their stay !
