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! Our only grandson is heading to the United States Merchant Marine Academy. He asked for a boat when he graduates so he can bring it to the beach. I will start saving now!

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 love for all things "water" to the grandkids. They can't wait to get here and hate to leave.

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 constant relaxation!!!!!!! relaxation...family...friends...surf...fishing.. the entire Atlantic Ocean!!!!

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

A most enjoyable stay in spite of the weather and riptides

  • 5 of 5

This was a family reunion. The unit was bright and clean, and obviously well-cared for. The decor is obviously beach, but the interior decorating made it feel more like a home than a rental unit at a resort. Since we planned on eating the majority of meals together, we found the kitchen well stocked with dishware, utensils, pots and pans. (We have rented units with only one fry pan and a two quart pot and mixed silverware in small quantities that had to be washed after every meal). There were both drip and Kerig coffee makers. The dishwasher was so quiet that we thought it was not working. Rain, wind, and riptides with red flag conditions limited water activities but the ocean viewis spectacular from the deck. The more adventuresome did kite boarding on the sound which had very calm water. The older folks appreciated the comfortable king bed and spacious low-step shower. There were plenty of towels and even large rolls of soft toilet paper in adequate supply provided. The entertainment system and web access provided us with things to do when raining. The table sat 8 easily with plenty of room for dishes with meals. Once on the island and past the hotels, traffic was light and moved well. There is plenty to do in the area, but we enjoyed the more residential nature of the island as opposed to the touristy Outer Banks Region.

A wonderful gem on the beach

  • 5 of 5

What a great location. Walk right out the door, a few steps over the dunes and you were at the beach. Could not ask for much more. The property was clean and as described. Linens were provided which I find a plus. The beds were comfortable and each room had enough space. I also loved the fact there were garbage bags and other paper products there. It is hard to drive a number of hours and then have to spend time in a grocery store picking up those items. The outside furniture was plentiful and there was umbrellas and chairs for the beach. We have rented a number of times at different areas in the US and this was one of the best rentals for us. Tony met us there when we checked in to go over things. A nice touch. We will be back.
