About Lee Steiner

My husband moved this little house to this location in 2015. It has been a rehab in progress every since. He did the kitchen and I did the bathroom. Fun and sweat until he go sick in September of 2016 and never got to see it as it is now. He passed away in January 2017 but his memory and honor is everywhere in this precious piece of paradise on the Fort Morgan Peninsula.

What makes this cottage unique

House is located so central to fishing in the gulf and bay. Kayaking bring your own or rent. Golf course 2 miles away. Plus the courses in Gulf Shores and Trent Jones at the Grand Hotel. History at Fort Morgan and a ferry ride to Dauphin Island. Maps and brochure are in the cottage.

Clean and stocked well.

We had a lovely time at the Palmetto Paradise! If you are looking to get away to a secluded area, this is the place. It’s 3 blocks from the beach but, an easy walk to and from. We are an active family so it wasn’t an issue. The outside shower was so nice and convenient for our little family to wash off after a long wonderful day at the beach. Surfside Shore beach was incredible. There was plenty of room for relaxation. Not crowded at all. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience at the Palmetto.

It was great and very quiet & private which we loved. It was definitely enough room for 2. This was our honeymoon spot. The only thing we didn’t like was that it was about 3 blocks from the beach but other than that it was great

We loved staying here! The beds and sheets were comfy and good quality, unlike some places that have rock hard beds and old bedding. Very clean and lots of essentials that you wouldn’t think about needing till you get down there. The owner is very friendly and sweet. The outside shower was a great way to wash off as soon as you get back from the beach. The neighborhood was nice and the beach seemed to be dog friendly and we got to play with some very cute pups and meet some very nice people. The walk to the beach takes about 5-10 minutes and the cart helps a lot. We didn’t want to leave, we would definitely stay here again. :)

Very nice and relaxing, secluded feeling. Great walk to beach, enjoyed my walk in the mornings especially. Would have liked a better grill and always a hot tub ❤️ Overall experience was exactly what we needed, lots of good exploring- Fort Morgan, and the Gulf State Parks were amazing. Thank you!

Loved the location of this cottage. The privacy was one of our favorite things about our trip. Enjoyed the sunshine on the deck every day. Very “cute” and beach-like theme throughout. Owner answered any question that we had promptly. You will not be disappointed if you choose to stay here.
