o Welcome to Xanadu East! It's impressive! We are an oceanfront duplex with gorgeous vistas, great for families with kids or adults looking for an adult only get-away
o Xanadu East is a light, bright and airy oceanfront duplex with exceptional, sweeping ocean vistas. Two oceanfront and two ocean view bedrooms help you feel at home with your friends and family in the attractively decorated beach home. Ceiling fans help spread the ocean breezes to every room. Two huge 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 elegant. Clean your fish and have them for dinner! Do get a license.
o This duplex sits taller and closer to the ocean than its neighbors which makes for striking 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 take a few steps and you are right on the beach with them. There is a enormous outdoor shower with hot and cold water outside for cleaning off all the sand that seems to get everywhere!
o We attempt to maintain Xanadu East in the best condition we can provide. 2019 brought a brand new kitchen with up to date cabinets and drawers; a new stove and microwave, a combo coffee maker, refreshed lighting and new bench seating at the table! Check out the all-new artwork, all the photos are taken by our family to showcase our adore of the Crystal Coast. The updated decks flow off the living area creating an extraordinary place to gather with family, friends and striking vistas. 2023 brings new floor in the bedrooms, new couches and chairs upstairs!
o 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! A picnic table provides painless eating space. The top deck 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 where you need them.
o 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 calming area, the dining area and bedroom. Two sets of sliding doors provide an impressive amount of light to the entire second floor. You can eat in the dining area and your digestion will be aided by the vistas of the Atlantic Ocean beckoning to you. A sizable bay window provides additional light.
