Welcome to 'Morning Dew' beach house!

'Morning Dew' is a perfect getaway, whether for a romantic holiday, a private family vacation, or reunions. Enjoy the experience all year round!

There are plenty of beautiful homes on the Gulf, but only a few are new, custom-designed, and built (2014) with unparalleled quality (gold certification) and according to the principles of luxury, simplicity, natural beauty, ecological conscience and environmental respect. 'Morning Dew' is built to be an elegant and spacious 3600 square foot 2-story family vacation beachfront home nestled in the “Cottages at Romar”, an upscale and exclusive gated community perfectly located in the vibrant town of Orange Beach, Alabama.

From the Gulf front side (South side) of the house, enjoy cool breezes under a large covered veranda off the Great Room on the first floor, or on a balcony outside the upstairs master bedroom, sip on your favorite beverage, laze away the hours (furnished with sofa, love seat and individual seats from designer house Braxton Culler), find serenity and relaxation or watch dolphins swim by. The expansive outdoor terrace with more than 750 square feet overlooking the high sand dunes and offers a breathtaking view of the endless emerald water of the Gulf is perfect to relax and sunbathe. Use the icebox to keep your drinks cxold and dine alfresco on a six seater outdoor dining table, or delight in the starry nights while enjoying the company of your loved ones. After all, vacations are all about providing relaxation, relationship-building opportunities and unforgettable memories. The house has its own over-the-dunes private walk way; within moments your toes are in the powdery sand of the gulf beaches – straight shot; no streets for children to cross.

From the entrance side (North side) of the house, a few steps will take you to a large resort style pool with zero-entry and splash features, a water lounge area, all among many towering palm trees. There’s something here for everyone.

The inside of 'Morning Dew' offers a perfect layout for small and large groups with both luxury and quality: elegant design elements are experienced throughout the house, every detail painstakingly considered to provide comfort and relaxation in this cottage style home. You are away from the routines of everyday life, yet are comforted by the many conveniences of this well-appointed home. You will appreciate the luxury beds, scrumptious linens and towels, and the comfortable uncluttered furniture and pleasing beach decor (from designer houses such as Uttermost and Regina Andrew). Wireless internet access with satellite TV in every bedroom are among many other amenities offered. Coordinated colors & fabrics, pine wood floors, walls and ceilings provide a beautiful backdrop to the breathtaking views of the Gulf.

We had a fabulous spring break

  • 5 of 5

8 adults and 8 children had a fabulous week at a beautiful home. You could not ask for more - the house had every amenity imaginable and the ability to sit on the back deck (in the sun or under cover) while watching the kids play on the sugar white sand beach was terrific. We all brought our bicycles and we could cruise one block down the street to a safe traffic light crossing to Gulf State Park with miles of paved trails, no cars, golf, tennis and tons of play space including a butterfly garden and play fields. The double refrigerators in the kitchen were a big hit as were all the flat screen tvs throughout the house. The owner provided us with extensive information about Things to Do, Favorite Restaurants and how to use all the toys in the home. He was terrific and we asked lots and lots of questions. Our family cannot wait to return - this is a beautiful home in a perfect location.

Perfect luxurious, relaxed vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here for the week of my wedding. Since I had family flying in from California it was important that they had the best time while visiting orange beach for the first time. This house could not have been more perfect. I am very picky when booking a vacation rental and I was impressed with everything about this house. The decor was very relaxed yet clean and modern. It looked as if we were the first to stay! All of the rooms have their own bathroom and flat screen so every guest was very comfortable. My favorite was the large master suite with balcony overlooking the gulf.

We spent the majority of our time on the humongous deck. All of the furniture was very comfortable and my family saw dolphin swim by every morning.

The beach kayaks were so much fun! We got a kick of watching my dad or "grandpa" try to take a wave on one. Not as easy as it looks! We also had some beach volleyball games- action packed!!! We are already planning on our next time back and I wouldn't stay anywhere else. We were spoiled!

Perfect Family Style Spring Break

  • 5 of 5

My family and our close friends organized a wonderful spring break to Orange Beach and Morning Dew. We could not have been happier with the location, accommodations and amenities. There was ample space for 15 of us to have very comfortable beds (high quality linens) and the well-stocked spacious 6.5 bathrooms gave plenty of privacy. Renting was easy yet very thorough by the owners. Morning Dew is located directly on the beach with a huge deck to watch sunrises and sunsets. The Kayaks, beach chairs and tent provided allowed for all day beach fun. Also, several of our guests are runners and thoroughly enjoyed such close access to Gulf Shores State Park trails. The Kitchen is furnished beautifully with plenty of amenities, even two coffee makers which came in handy for those needing decaf and regular. I cannot imagine a more beautiful and newly furnished property. The only thing we would have enjoyed but that Morning Dew did not have was a gas grill. I would definitely rent again.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your kind review. It gives us great pleasure and satisfaction that you and your and family and friends enjoyed the beautiful beach house and awesome beach. Will definitely consider the gas grill suggestion. See you soon. Hisham (owner)

Lovely holiday at Morning Dew

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent Thanksgiving at the beach and had a wonderful time. Hisham could not have been a better host, and the sun shone every day we were there. This time of year, with the sun low in the sky, you can easily enjoy the sun from sunrise to sunset from the lovely deck at Morning Dew.

First, the renting process: This was my first time renting in Gulf Shores or with VRBO. So I had plenty of questions. Also, family was meeting there from all over the US, and others were coming and going locally at different times of the week, so planning was tricky. Hisham was very helpful, responsive to my questions, and flexible in timing and approach. He made check in and check out simple. No keys to retrieve or realtors to meet.

The home was in great shape for us when we arrived. The beds were made with fresh linens and there were plenty of towels to go around. There were hotel sized toiletries in every bathroom and plenty of tissue paper to begin our stay. The bathrooms were stocked with plenty of towels—assuming you know how to hang up your towel and use it more than once or how to use the washer—but they are not Egyptian cotton. If you are picky about having big fluffy towels, bring your own. We brought our own beach towels, but had little need for them, as there was plenty of outdoor seating and we didn’t get far into the water.

Second, the house: This is a beautiful home, newly built and freshly decorated. The decor is minimal and tasteful and pleasant throughout. The common areas are the perfect size for a family of 18 to gather. The dinner table easily seats 12 for Thanksgiving (and could have held 14). The bar and outdoor tables easily accommodated the "teens." The kitchen is roomy enough and well appointed. I wish it were as easy to find the right pan or dish in my own kitchen! The only thing we lacked was storage containers for housing leftovers. Bring some along!

Third, the development: This is going to be a beautiful development when it is done. The fact that it isn’t done yet has upsides and downsides. An upside is that the pool is already done and you’ve got that more or less to yourself. It is a gorgeous zero entry pool, well designed and spacious. There is fire pit at the pool that is a nice added touch.

In short, my family could not have been more pleased with our stay. We highly recommend Morning Dew and will look forward to a time when we can return.

Beautiful Views from a Beautiful House!

  • 5 of 5

You cannot find a more beautiful location nor a more fabulous beach house in this area of the gulf. Comfy beds, spacious accommodations and a well appointed kitchen. Everything you need to enjoy the beach as well with kayaks, chairs, floats, etc. and a great pool nearby. Convenient to supermarkets and restaurants. Huge porch and decks looking out over the beach. Can't wait to go back!

Morning Dew

  • 5 of 5

Great location with fabulous beach front view! Home is brand new, well-maintained and has all the amenities. The beach and pool were just steps away and perfect for sunbathing, relaxing, or just enjoying a good book. Owners were very responsive and making sure all necessary items were available to make a wonderful family vacation. This property is perfect for larger groups, as well as spacious for smaller families having young children. Restaurants, shopping, water parks, groceries are all within a short driving distance. I recommend this property for anyone wanting a relaxing beach vacation!
