About Johanna & Tony Dold

We wanted to provide a family 'gathering' place that everyone would love. We found it! With seven grandkids we wanted a place where all could gather. Xanadu East is that place. Each spring and summer we spend a week with our entire family at Xanadu East. Our grandkids are growing up here during vacations along with their many friends! A true family experience!

Johanna & Tony Dold purchased this house in 2000

Why Johanna & Tony Dold chose Emerald Isle

Our grown children have been coming to Emerald Isle every summer for many years since they were the ages of their children. Emerald Isle is a 'generational' place for us. Their kids adore it now as much as ours did when they were children. We have passed that on to their children.

What makes this house unique

Constant relaxation...Constant relaxation...Constant relaxation...Constant relaxation...Constant relaxation...Constant relaxation...Constant relaxation...Constant relaxation...Constant relaxation...Constant relaxation...Constant relaxation...Constant relaxation...Constant relaxation...Constant relaxation...Constant relaxation...Constant relaxation...Constant relaxation...sunshine and relaxation...family...friends...surf...fishing.. the entire Atlantic Ocean!!!! Oh and constant relaxation!!!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for sharing your beach home with our family. We had a wonderful time, especially spending two whole weeks. It was a blessing to watch our children play, laugh, build sand castles and catch a lot of fish. Hope to return soon

Property was in great condition and had lots of accommodations. Could use a new slider door by dining room table alittle fogged up. Lock on right hand slider upstairs doesn't latch. Overall these are minor and we would rent again. Thanks !!!!!

What a great location!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in your house. The deck was awesome and we stayed on it most of the time. Found a great restaurant in Emerald Isle and took a tour thru the Aquarium. All great fun for our family reunion. The house was spacious (a bit dated) and well kept. The beds were comfy and we had plenty of room for 9 adults. The short walk out to the beach followed by beautiful sunsets, made for a great weekend trip.

Owner's Response: Donna, thanks for your comment & we are glad you enjoyed your stay. As we always like feed back we are wondering what you saw as "dated". We always listen, just to let you know we are having the carpets & curtains cleaned, new interior doors put in & the foggy slider is being replaced. If possible we are going to enlarge the bathroom in the lower front bedroom, which will move the closet over to where the dresser & mirror is. Meeting with a contractor to see if a maybe. Looking forward to hearing from you, regards Tony & Johanna

Everything we wanted with the beach just a few steps away!!!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter was getting married at Fort Macon and we wanted a place to stay for the entire family to be together and share a few days. This also included our family dog, who had never stayed at the beach before. This is an ideal setting, and October made it the perfect time of the year to have the windows open and fall asleep to the crashing waves all night long!! We had perfect weather and plenty of room for all of us. The house is very well equipped with anything that you may need indoors and out. Allot of the other features like the outdoor private shower (with both hot and cold water) is really nice! Large deck area with plenty of seating, plus the lower level deck shaded to get out of the sun if needed but still be outdoors to watch the beach and waves!! Easy five minute (or less) drive to restaurants and stores for anything else from souvenirs to necessities. We never had to pack anything for the beach to bring, kids used boogie boards while we watched in the beach chairs that were all provided. This was great since it meant we didn’t need to buy them or transport them all the way from Ohio, where we live!! Often packing up in a vehicle for a long distance drive doesn’t leave much room for items like that so we were very appreciative that they were supplied with the house. Overall we had a great experience and we would definitely do it again every chance we can get to return. We loved being directly on the beach front with multiple rooms (and bedrooms) facing the ocean. Everyday we were able to see a group of Dolphins swim by and got some really good photos of them too from the upper deck. We walked everyday on the beach picking up seashells, which were plentiful and packed way too many home!!! Overall a fantastic experience with the homeowners being very responsive to emails before and during our stay!! Do not hesitate on debating on wether to stay here or not, this is the place you’ve been searching for, right on the beach!!

P.S. The dog had a blast and made many friends while on the beach. He wishes he could rate his stay with 4 paws up!!

Thanks again for everything, we will return someday!!!

If you want to relax, this is the place to do it!

  • 5 of 5

Xanadu East is the perfect place to relax and unwind. The ocean front views are second to none! The house is beautiful, bright, open, and airy with everything you could need to enjoy every single day. The house upon arriving was impeccably clean and ready for our stay. The owners go above and beyond by leaving a welcome basket to get your week started. They treat each renter like family, not like just a renter! Can't wait to get back to Emerald Isle and Xanadu East!

Loved our stay at Xanadu East!

  • 5 of 5

We came down the week of July 4th, we've stayed at the house before a few yeas ago and noticed some really nice changes. Love the new floor it is great! The whole house was very clean we walked in, noticed that right away. The house is light and bright and the view is amazing . Noticed there were new pots & pans, which was important to us from a cooking standpoint, appreciated that upgrade. Also LOVE the new deck. It's great to be able to sit outside and eat on the top deck, also just to sit out and catch some sun up there. The bottom deck is pretty covered, and really nice to sit on after being out in the sun..there is a cool breeze. The kids couldn't stay out of the hammock, it was always in use. Other amazing upgrade is the outside shower. It's a real shower, and two of the boys (grown) just used this as their shower..it's enclosed, it's huge and it has hot & cold water. Lastly, Tony & Johanna go out of their way to make your arrival perfect, and they are always very responsive . Have stayed at other properties and they are owners that you want to rent from. Will absolutely be returning.
