--Welcome to Xanadu East! We are an oceanfront duplex with amazing views and great for families with kids, aunts, uncles, grandparents, friends and so on.
--Xanadu East is a light, bright and airy oceanfront duplex with incredible, sweeping ocean views. Two oceanfront and two ocean view bedrooms help you feel at home with your friends and family in the tastefully decorated beach home. Ceiling fans help spread the ocean breezes to every room. Two large decks and a few steps to the wide expanse of beach frontage enhance every moment at Xanadu. Watch the dolphins lazily pass by, often taking time to frolic and fish in the surf. Pelicans and seabirds galore. Surf fishing both in and out of season is excellent. Clean your fish and have them for dinner! Do get a license.
--This duplex sits taller and closer to the ocean than its neighbors which makes for amazing views! 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 easily from the deck if you'd like to have a drink or you just 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 house. There is a large outdoor shower with hot and cold water outside for cleaning off all of the sand that seems to get everywhere!
--We attempt to maintain Xanadu East in the best condition we can provide. We are constantly touching up, adding and making it comfortable for your vacation. One of our most favorite changes in the spring of 2016 was replacing the two oceanfront decks with much larger decks. Check out the pictures. The decks flow off the living area creating an amazing place to gather with family, friends and beautiful views.
--Two very roomy decks are accessed through the sliders in the ocean front bedrooms. The first floor deck is completely shaded and is equipped with polywood chairs and rockers, foot rests, and side tables. A hammock for your fun and comfort! Makes for a great place to relax and watch the surf, read a book, and just enjoy. A picnic table provides easy eating space. The top deck, has a large dining table and makes for a great place to eat a meal. Also included are polywood chairs and rockers along with a picnic table and umbrella and a couple of chaise lounges. Each deck has an exit gate to keep kids and dogs where you need them.
--Our duplex has a reverse floor plan with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms on the first floor. All 3 bedrooms have ocean views. Two of them have full oceanfront views thru large double sliding glass doors. The first of the oceanfront bedrooms has a queen size bed and an attached full bathroom. The other oceanfront bedroom has two double beds allowing for a maximum of 4 people. The third bedroom on first floor has a lovely queen bed and is across the hall from the full bathroom.
__First level has three roomy bedrooms and two full baths, new washer and dryer. Two of the three bedrooms have sliding doors to the deck and the ocean. Be lulled to sleep by the sound of the sea and awaken to a beautiful sunrise from the east! Dolphins may enhance your morning wake
--The oceanfront bedrooms allow the sound of the surf to lull you to sleep. When you awaken to the sun rising to the east the ocean becomes a diamond studded picture. All you need to do is open the sliding doors, walk a few feet to the steps and you will be on the beach
--The second floor includes the living area, kitchen, dining area and a second master bedroom and bathroom. The second floor has a vaulted ceiling with canned lighting and fans in both the lounging area, the dining area and bedroom. Two sets of sliding doors provide an incredible amount of light to the entire second floor. You can eat in the dining area and your digestion will be aided by the views of the Atlantic Ocean beckoning to you. A large bay window provides additional light.
--The second floor master has a comfortable king size bed and boasts both an ocean view and a sound view looking through the side windows or front windows. This bedroom has its own master bath with a double shower which has seats and a large closet.
