'Happiness is to capture the images of our dreams in the Morning Dew and the smile of the sun'

Welcome to 'Morning Dew' beach house!

If your desire is a getaway to an awesome vacation home directly on the pristine white sandy beaches of the emerald coast of the Gulf of Mexico, look no more! Discover “Morning Dew”; our luxury contemporary cottage-styled, custom-built Gulf-front beach home offering tranquility, and accessibility; bringing together a luxurious yet unassuming environment and exceptional amenities to help create lifetime memories for you and your guests. '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. 'Morning Dew' boasts 7 bedrooms (each with its own flat screen smart LED HDTV all with satellite service), 6 and a half baths, a large enclosed outdoor shower (with warm water too!), beautifully and elegantly furnished, accommodating up to 18; all this with a large terrace offering stunning endless views of the Gulf of Mexico.

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 cold 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.

On the second floor (floor plan in photo section): an expansive great room with open plan features a full kitchen with granite counter tops, large enough for several cooks and with high end stainless steel GE appliances and bar seating (seats 6), a large dining table (seats 12 comfortably), and a beautifully furnished living room (all facing the Gulf) with a large screen smart/internet ready 65 inch Samsung 3D LED HDTV, Blu Ray player, an Apple Airplay to stream your music from your mobile device, high end sound system, and for the fun of it, an XBox kinect!! The large gourmet kitchen, overlooking the emerald waters of the Gulf, is fully equipped with 2 side-by-side refrigerators (great for minimizing shopping trips and for separating multifamily and special groceries) and a separate ice maker (a must during the Summer), furnished with all Lecreuset cookware, high end GE appliances (including 2 refrigerators), standalone icemaker, 2 coffee machines (Mr Coffeee, Keurig machine and French press) and all inviting to large gatherings around a central island capped with granite and an oversized kitchen table perfect for sharing memorable multigenerational meals and enjoying each others' company...

There are 2 bedrooms (each with king size bed) on the second floor each with its own en suite bathroom (one of which has a walk-in shower perfect for the elderly in your group). A large centrally located powder room half bath and a separate utility room with high capacity steam GE washer and dryer is also be located in the center of the first floor.

The third/top floor (floor plan in photo section) offers 5 bedrooms: 2 king sized bedrooms and one queen sized bedroom each with its own en suite bathroom; the 4th bedroom also has a king size bed and shares a double vanity bathroom with the fifth bedroom featuring 4 bunk beds, perfect for a parent/child suite combination. Every room is furnished to the highest of standards and all bedrooms include a flat screen LED HDTV with satellite TV and high speed internet. All bathrooms have granite counter tops.

Everything needed for the perfect beach vacation is right here at 'Morning Dew'. We provide these amenities on site so you don't waste your time or spend the money renting them...

Beautiful Home in Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

50th birthday celebration for several life time friends. This was the perfect spot in a beautiful location, directly on the beach, and only a few steps away from the pool.

The Kitchen was well furnished for the chefs in our group. There were umbrellas, beach toys, and kayaks for the outdoorsy/adventurers in our group, and wonderful mattresses for those of us in need of sleep. Mr. Baalaki was wonderful to provide information and answer any questions or concerns we had with a quick response. So thankful for a wonderful place to make new memories in.

Fabulous Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 12 (our mom, her three daughters and their families with “kids” ranging in age from 10 to 29) recently enjoyed a fabulous week at Morning Dew. For the previous five summers, we had chosen to spend our family vacations on 30a, but we decided to return to Orange Beach so our matriarch would have easier accessibility to the beach. We’re so happy to have found Morning Dew! Our mom was able to walk up a short flight of stairs from the beach-level entrance to the main living area of this gorgeous home, and the private boardwalk made it easy for her to join her grandkids on the beach each day of our vacation. We loved the open floor plan and the views of the ocean from the spacious and comfortable family room, the large and well-appointed kitchen with two refrigerators and an icemaker, and the dining table that seated all members of our family. One of our favorite parts of our vacation at Morning Dew was spending time on the huge deck, where we could watch dolphins in the morning, enjoy sunsets in the afternoon, and sip wine under the stars at night. Next year we will bring a telescope! The main floor of the home also includes a powder room, a laundry room, and two bedrooms with private baths, one of which was perfect for our mom because of its zero entry shower. There are five bedrooms upstairs, and having the bunk room for kiddos was an added bonus. We greatly appreciate all of the extras that were provided, especially the kayaks, paddle boards, life jackets, beach chairs, beach mats, and beach toys. Hisham is the consummate host, and he went out of his way to make sure our family enjoyed a wonderful vacation. In fact, we have never rented from an individual or company that took such care in communicating details prior to our arrival, while also so kindly following through during our stay to make sure everything was perfect. Thank you, Hisham! We loved being guests in your beautiful home, and we look forward to returning next year!

A Memorable Week in Orange Beach

  • 5 of 5

We were attracted to Morning Dew because of the 2014 construction, on beach location, large community pool and the amenities offered for beach use, kayaks, paddle board, fishing gear, etc. Each couple had a bedroom with private bath and the bunkroom was ideal for the teenage boys in our group. Morning Dew proved the perfect spot for our family vacation/reunion, ages from 3 to 90. Lots of space for us to enjoy together, yet enough private space, too. Every family was responsible for one meal day and the open, spacious and well equipped kitchen made meal prep one of the weeks highlights. Joe Patti's in Pensacola and Blalock Seafood in Gulf Shores provided wonderful seafood that were enjoyed by a variety of recipes. Not only was the beach view great, the 4th of July fireworks in Gulf Shores and Perdido Beach were visible from the beach.

Hisham was great to work with and while there is always an element of mystery in this type of transaction, from our first conversation any apprehension on my part vanished. The other residents and guests we encountered within the complex were all nice and welcoming. Hisham made himself available for contact should anything be needed during our stay. At our invitation, Hisham stopped by to meet us, which was a pleasure. You couldn't ask to work with a better property owner.

After my daughter and grandson drove 7 hours to their home on check out day, she texted me when they got off the interstate at the end of their journey. Here text says it all, "As we were exiting the interstate we agreed if we could have another week at Morning Dew we would get on the entrance ramp on the other side and drive back right then".

Grand Beach Home

  • 5 of 5

In celebration of 50 years of marriage, we had 8 adults and 10 children(6-16 years) at this wonderful beach location. Everything from the beginning of our reservations to check out was expedited quickly. We had no problems and Hisham even contacted us to let us know he was unavailable for 6 hours in the event we had any. The 2 refrigerators were well used as was the huge sundeck. This is a very well equipped house in all aspects. We ate Rotolo's Pizzeria, Hurricane Grill and Wings, Anchor Bar and Grill and the Gulf...yummy food. Lartigue's Seafood has the best boiled shrimp. We were able to mix beach time with play time@ the Blue Angles and the marvelous Naval Museum, Pirate Ship, Adventure Island and deep sea fishing. Red snapper was our catch of the day and we went to Mikee's Seafood to have the fish grilled. A lovely, lovely home to sit on the deck, enjoy the early morning quietness as sea gulls and pelicans fly around as well as evening time as the full moon glistened on the ocean. We shared a week of wonderful memories with our family as well as 50 years of marriage.

Perfect home on the beach

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 17 (3 families +) enjoyed a spectacular week at Morning Dew. There was plenty of space for everyone and we couldn't believe how comfortable the beds were! The plentiful beach paraphernalia, from chairs to kayaks, were so convenient to have available to us. The kitchen is amazingly well-equipped - we prepared many large meals and found everything we needed. Our teenaged kids (11 of them!) had a blast going back and forth from the pool to the beach. The adults loved having breakfast on the deck - we never tired of the view. The location of this home cannot be beat. Shopping, restaurants, marina, bike rentals - everything you'd want to do - are all minutes from the house. We were also very impressed with the responsiveness of Hisham (owner) throughout our rental experience - top-notch customer service!! This was definitely a luxury experience!
