Welcome to Xanadu West! It is an oceanfront duplex with striking vistas and is great for families especially with young kids.

The duplex sits taller and closer to the ocean than its neighbors which makes for spectacular vistas! One can see all the way from Indian Beach to the Point from the top deck. We've discovered that by being closer to the ocean (while not giving up good beach depth) life with kids and especially little ones is just much easier! You can see your kids comfortably from the deck if you'd like to have a drink or you just have to take a few steps and you are right on the beach with them. You don't have to put up a big umbrella or pack food or drinks as you are so close to the shaded decks and home. There is a full outdoor shower with hot and cold water outside for cleaning off all of the sand that seems to get everywhere!

The duplex has a reverse floorplan with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms on the first floor. All 3 bedrooms have ocean vistas with two of them have full oceanfront vistas thru enormous double sliding glass doors. The first of the oceanfront bedrooms has queen size bed and an attached bathroom. The other oceanfront bedroom has one queen bed along with a twin/trundle to allow for a max. of 4 people in that room. The third bedroom on first floor has 2 sets of bunk beds accepting 4 people to sleep in that room as well.
You can hear the roar of the surf when you fall asleep and then welcome it in the morning when you are woken up by little feet. Appreciate just opening the glass door and stepping out on the lower deck for a marvelous view of the ocean.

The second floor includes the living room, kitchen, dining room and a second master bedroom and bathroom. The second floor has a vaulted ceiling with multiple huge windows including a huge bay window to provide a incredible amount of natural light into the home. Just step out onto the upper deck and you will have one of the most impressive vistas of Emerald Isle.

The second floor master has a king size bed and features both an ocean view and a sound view out of its two windows.

Outside, there are two different decks with which to appreciate the ocean. The lower deck resides just outside of the first floor oceanfront rooms described earlier. This deck is completely shaded and is equipped with four adirondack chairs, foot rests, and side tables which makes for a great place to sit and watch the surf, read a book, have a drink and just savor the beach. The top deck, which has doubled in size, has a sizable dining table that seats up to 10 people which makes for a great place to eat a meal. There is another gathering space with a bench and two chairs as well as some very comfortable rocking chairs to help enjoy the awesome view of Emerald Isle.

As a family of 6 with 4 kids, we are keenly aware of just how much 'stuff' one must bring to the beach. We can help complimentary up some space by providing a Pack-n-Play, Bouncy Seat, and High Chair/Booster that are already at Xanadu West.

The kitchen is well equipped with an electric stove, microwave, refrigerator, dishwasher, two coffee makers including a traditional Mr. Coffee and a Keurig, deep fryer, slow cooker, blender, and large griddle. There is a nice dvd/video library including movies for both kids and adults for afternoon or evening viewing. There are games and puzzles as well for those in need of a break from the sun. Also, a charcoal grille is ready to help make great family meals.

We generally require a 7 nighttime stay during thr prime season. Linens including towels are included complimentary of charge during the prime season of June, July and August. We can arrange linens/towels at guest request in the other months during the off-season to be paid for as an additional charge by the renter. This accepts us to keep the nightly rental prices lower in the off-season.

For those that want to discover the island, there are plenty of activities away from the beach for everybody in your group. For the active: bicycling (units available on island), golf, kayak and boat units, mini-golf, amusement park, horseback riding, volleyball, water park, driving range, skating, off-shore fishing, kite-flying. For the sightseer and shopper: There is Morehead City, Beaufort waterfront, Swansboro waterfront stores and antiques, Emerald Isle stores, North Carolina Aquarium and more.

We hope you give us a try at Xanadu West!

Strategies to get the best rental experience:

Sticking to your rental budget:

  • Book your vacation rental as early as possible. Rental schedules usually open twelve months in advance (or in September just after Summer ends). Many families book their Summer vacations during Winter holiday get-togethers. Reserve before these holidays for best selection.
  • Booking in Fall or Spring months is a good way to save money on your vacation. Rental rates are lower, and you'll find a larger selection of desirable homes. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook the holidays for a Morehead City vacation! Who wouldn't love a holiday near the ocean? Christmas, Thanksgiving, and New Years Eve are great times to gather with loved ones at your favorite beach.
  • Veterans and Active Duty Military members may be qualified for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective property manager or host if your vacationing group qualifies for a special promotion or discount.
  • Management companies and individual rental owners often offer customers an option to obtain trip insurance. Trip insurance, which will generally cost 1% - 5% of the reservation price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for any missed vacation time as a result of medical-related catastrophes or weather, as well as ensuing additional evacuation costs, such as an unanticipated hotel stay or extra gas expenses. Trip insurance is definitely a life-saver if the unforeseen happens. Ask the property owner for specifics.
  • Often, management companies and vacation rental houses supply Morehead City area visitor guide magazines which often include special offers, either offered directly by local businesses, or through a relationship between the rental management company and the business itself. You can also find Morehead City area magazine and coupon books at local gas stations and shopping centers.

How to choose the best rental home:

  • Choose a group leader, choose your vacation dates, and choose a max budget.
  • Decide how many bedrooms and the configuration you need. Oceanfront. Enlarged Deck. Great for families! has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.
  • Specific descriptions of bedrooms and bed sizes & counts is normally accessible on booking pages. Otherwise, contact the property manager before reserving your rental. Remember that most properties list maximum guest capacity, which oftentimes includes pull-out couches. You'll need to establish what is best for your group.
  • Some rental properties allow pets, and some don't. Allowable types of pet, weight and breeds may be restricted, and added costs may apply. Ask the host about allowable breeds and types before booking.
  • Are you visiting for a specific event or attraction? Try a map search to browse nearby properties.
  • Proper accessibility can make or break a vacation for persons with a disability. .

More considerations for your visit:

  • Be sure you get the property manager's phone number and entry/exit procedures for your .
  • Hosts are available to help! Feel free to ask questions before, during, or after your stay.
  • Lock your rental property while you're away! Don't let burglars spoil your holiday.
  • During arrival, document any damages to the rental property and immediately contact the property manager. Record all coorespondence.
  • Respecting quiet hours and parking restrictions can make a stay significantly more pleasurable. You'll enhance your chance to make local friends, and resident neighbors are a great resource to find the best local spots.
  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local! Locals can usually help. Who better to ask where to find the best bike paths, have a great night out, or the best spots for fishing?
  • Don't leave anything behind! Just before departing, walk through the property to reconfirm you've collected all personal belongings. Remember to check closets, dressers, garages, and bathrooms for hidden treasure. Remove everything from the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
  • Document the condition of the property at check-out. We recommend taking a video during your final walk-through.
  • Did your family have a terrific time? Most rental management companies make it easy for travelers to provide feedback. If your property and/or host was fantastic, they would love to hear it. If anything was defective and they failed to fix it within reason, or if the vacation rental wasn't as described, you'll want to make it a point as part of your comments.
