About this Property

Xanadu East,

--Welcome to Xanadu East! , It's beautiful! We are an oceanfront duplex with exceptional vistas and great for families with children, aunts, uncles, grandparents, friends and more.

--Xanadu East is a light, bright and airy oceanfront duplex with amazing, sweeping sea vistas. Two oceanfront and two sea view bedrooms help you feel at home with your friends and family in the charmingly decorated beach home. Ceiling fans help spread the sea 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 superb. Clean your fish and have them for dinner! Do get a license.

--This duplex sits taller and closer to the sea 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 sea (while not giving up good beach depth) life with children and especially little ones is just much easier! You can see your children conveniently 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 home. There is a enormous 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. 2019 brings 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 spectacular place to gather with family, friends and handsome vistas.

--Two very roomy decks are accessed through the sliders in the sea 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 savor. A picnic table provides simple eating space. The top deck, has a sizable dining table and makes for a great place to eat a meal.

Money Saving Rental Tips

  • Find the tourism bureau where you want to visit. Many established tourism bureaus will send you promotional tourism guides with deals for vacation rentals, restaurants and attractions. Be on the lookout for these magazines and discount books, as this allows travelers to enjoy the very same fantastic activities at a often considerable discounted.
  • Are you willing to shift your dates? Off-peak times offer sizeable markdowns.
  • Active Duty and veterans of the US Military may qualify for financial savings. Be sure to ask property management company to see if your vacationing gang qualifies for a discounted price.
  • Some rental properties are essentially catered to specific guests, whether it is oceanside units with fishing pier passes, city-center homes with close access to night life or waterfront homes that have their own boat launching areas. Make sure that you prioritize your proximity to the outdoor activities and interesting attractions you are most looking forward to.
  • Think about getting trip insurance together with your lease contract. Trip insurance, which generally will cost you anywhere between 1% - 5% of the basic vacation rental rate, provides guests reimbursement of their rental costs for any days missed due to personal health related emergencies or hurricanes, as well as ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or expenses, like an unexpected hotel stay or additional gasoline.

General Rental property Tricks & Tips

First-timers are often times surprised at the range and wide variety of weekly vacation rentals available in the Beaufort, NC area. With such a big selection, renters are certain to select a rental that meets their desires and spending plan.

Rental homes are frequently owner operated or managed by rental management companies. For owners not directly involved with the management of their rental, management companies are instrumental in assisting guests with reserving, check-in, housekeeping services, as well as routine maintenance issues that may arise.

Here are some ideas and methods to help you understand the vacation rental search and reservation process.

Where to find and reserve the right rental home:

Do you believe "Welcome to Xanadu East. Book now for 2021. Already filling up!" is the perfect rental home for your upcoming family vacation? Browse through this check list to confirm it fits all of your needs.

The Sooner, The Better

Beaufort, NC rental properties start booking early. To ensure the best choice of rental homes, we suggest searching and reserving your Beaufort, NC getaway 6-12 months in advance, whenever possible. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years are excellent times to plan and book your vacation rental..

Settle on your Town and Vacation Week

Sometimes, the toughest portion of preparing for your trip is choosing where to go, and when. Once the big decisions are hammered out, the rest is easier.

Choosing an Appropriately-Sized Rental property

How many relatives are planning to share your trip? Be aware that most homes list maximum guest capacity, which usually includes sofa beds in the family room. It is important to determine what is suitable for your party. Generally vacation home listings will outline each of the unit's specific bedrooms and mattresses.

Make a Budget

Confirm that "Welcome to Xanadu East. Book now for 2021. Already filling up!" suits your budget *during your desired week*. If several groups or relatives are sharing the cost, make certain each group understands their responsibility and has agreed to a maximum they are prepared to contribute. A single individual in your group will have to be responsible for gathering contributions and acknowledging responsibility for the whole rental payment at time of booking.

Rental Home Features

What property features is the group interested in? Do you primarily want a rental with a swimming pool, spa or beach volleyball court? Are you more interested in wildlife or nightlife? Does the property have bicycles and body boards for use during your stay? Make a list of priority features to help filter your search.

Special Concerns

Optimal access could make or ruin a vacation for the less-mobile. If wheel chair access, elevators, pool lifts or other specialized devices are required, include that into your search. Most vacation home postings will include a list of amenities.

Fido Approved

Make sure to include your pets. Dog guidelines are different at each rental. Read descriptions carefully. Many constraints could dismiss a prospective rental. Study your contract thoroughly! Additional fees or costs may be applied to your agreement. Ask questions *before* you book!

Searching the Internet

A number of internet resources exist to match vacationers with property owners.. Besides Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we advise searching Google for "Beaufort, NC local rental homes" for local vacation home management companies. Local companies often times have a unique collection of rental homes daily and weekly.

Negotiate the Price

Re-read the description to ensure the home has everything you need. If it is something is missing, the vacation rental management company might know of very similar homes that fit your preferences and budget..

While not true for all rental properties, many rental owners and property managers will make a deal on rates. If they are unwilling to budge on a peak-season stay, try getting an extra night. The off-season offers your best chance to negotiate a reduced rate.

Read through the Total Agreement

Read the entire agreement and make sure you are aware who is liable for:

  • Electric bills
  • WIFI Access
  • Long Distance Calls
  • Pool Heating
  • Cable and pay-per-view TV
  • Housekeeping
  • Trash Pickup (and which day?)
  • Maintenance (get a phone number)
  • Check in & Check Out Key Exchange
  • Parking requirements

Ensure that your price includes all state taxes and fees.

Cancellation Policies

Cancellation policies vary with each rental. You will probably be offered trip insurance. Trip insurance, which commonly costs ranges from 1% - 5% of your standard rental rate, provides vacationers with reimbursement of their vacation costs (and subsequent rental property costs) for any nights missed due to personal health related emergencies or weather, as well as hurricane evacuation costs, such as a unforeseen hotel stay or extra gas.

Complete the Booking

Once you think you've identified "the one", start the booking process. Bear in mind that most rental agreements will require a significant rental deposit and/or security deposit to protect the home owner.

Where to Get Assistance

Put the property manager's contact information into your cell phone and wallet for quick access to answers during your trip.

Congrats! All that is left is enjoying your vacation!

During your Stay

  • Record the condition of the rental unit right away. If you find wear and tear, or if fixes are needed call the home manager immediately. If there is a dispute about legal responsibility later, having the recorded problems and communication attempts will be very helpful.
  • Ask questions. You might need guidance for a gas fireplace, TV or spa tub. Call your property manager. They are there to help. A phone call can save hours of trouble.
  • Make sure to be a good neighbor. Permanent residents often live within earshot. Remember the golden rule and treat others the same way you'd like to be treated by vacationers next to your home.
  • Ask a local. Locals may point you in the right direction.
  • Enjoy your stay! Make sure you protect the property owner (and your stuff!) by keeping the property secured while you are away, just like you would in your own home.

Checking Out

  • You should make sure you've packed everything. Examine drawers, bath cabinets and cabinets.
  • As soon as everything is out, begin a walk-through of the property to make sure that no damage occurred during your stay. We recommend walking through with the property manager wherever possible (this may not be possible).. If the property manager is not available, ensure that you take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • Did you have a good time? Many property management companies and vacation rental websites make it easy for customers to offer feedback. If the rental home and/or property manager was excellent, they will likely appreciate your praise. If anything was wrong and they didn't correct it in a acceptable manner, or if the rental was not as described, you'll want to make it a point as part of your review.

Use Your Experience

Did they love their rental? We hope this guide steered you to a great vacation rental. Maybe the rental property wasn't quite right, and you'll better know how to improve your search for the next trip.
