Are you tired of staying in a cookie cutter condo and fighting for a space on the beach? If so, look no further than Papa Roy's Paradise! Papa Roy calls his paradise the Peace & Contentment Lodge or the P&C Lodge. His mantra is 'Do nothing and rest afterwards.' Located on Spring Branch just off of Perdido Bay, Papa Roy's Paradise is a little slice of heaven. You can drink coffee in the glassed porch and watch for dolphins or relax with a cocktail on the beach and view the sunset. Inside, there are two bedrooms, a large living area, a fully equipped kitchen, and a spacious glassed/screened porch. For your outdoor pleasure, there are kayaks, surf boards, paddle boards and even a slide on the dock. On the white sandy beach, there is a gazebo with a sitting area and a grill. Bring your boat and fishing gear! A dock with an underwater fish light will provide hours of enjoyment and entertainment. With a little luck, you can catch fish and crabs. In ten minutes, by boat or car, you can be at Pirate's Cove enjoying one of their cheeseburgers in paradise and drinking a world famous bushwhacker. Also, there are many other restaurants located in the area that specialize in local seafood. The sugar sand beaches of Gulf Shores and Pensacola are a short drive away. Fresh fruit and vegetable stands abound in the area and Sweet Home Farm Cheese is close by in Elberta. The butchers at the Elberta Grocery will cut your filet, t-bone or porterhouse to order and wrap it in wax paper. They also make and sell the finest sausage in Baldwin County. In season, for an additional charge, Papa Roy will take you out on his shrimp boat, The Perdido Queen, to catch shrimp for your dinner or to observe dolphins in their natural habitat. The P&C Lodge is paradise found!

About Roy A. Mortensen, Jr.
You can travel many miles and not meet a character quite like Papa Roy. A shrimper for pleasure, not for profit, he washes his cares away each day in the beauty of his surroundings. His home, the P&C Lodge, in the Gulf Coast town of Josephine, Alabama, is a place where peace and contentment prevail. He spends his retirement enjoying life and savoring every bite. His mantra: 'Do nothing, and rest afterward.' This is Papa Roy's Gulf. Head south for a visit and discover yours.

We loved it! A great place to spend the week with the kids!
The property was very kid friendly! We loved that the kids had a private beach to play at while also having the water right there to swim in when they got hot! It was the perfect get away for a week of relaxation and fun for all of us and still close enough to go shopping at the outlet stores and have some fun!!
A wonderful place to create family memories
Thank you for a great place to kick off our Christmas holiday with family. My mother, sister and I truly enjoyed reminiscing about previous family cabin a few lots down the road. This is a wonderful area to create family memories. We hope to return soon!
Just what we were looking for!
If you’re looking for a quiet, out of the way, private waterfront cottage, this is the one. Kick back and read, listen to or play music, cook awesome Gulf seafood, go for a swim, kayak or paddle board. Morning coffee and afternoon cocktails out at the tiki bar patio. Papa Roy Morton is a wonderful host. Reservations and transactions were smooth and solid.
The cottage is very comfortable and stocked with everything you need during your stay. We would absolutely return for another stay at Papa Roy’s “Piece is Paradise”

We had a great time on our vacation! There is so much to do. Kayaking, fishing, paddle boarding and lounging on the beach! We will be back!
Loved the peacefulness of Spring Branch! Enjoyed the kayaks and paddle boards!!
We have a great time at Papa Roys!! The only thing that would have made our stay better was a 2nd bathroom 😜
Great respite before we headed back into the school year.
Beautiful and very restful. Grandchildren had a wonderful time, fishing, crabbing, and kayaking. Thanks looking forward to next year!
