Welcome to Xanadu West! It is an oceanfront duplex with striking vistas and is great for families especially with young kids.

The duplex sits taller and closer to the ocean than its neighbors which makes for extraordinary 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 have to 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 full outdoor shower with hot and cold water outside for cleaning off all of the sand that seems to get everywhere!

The duplex has a reverse floorplan with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms on the first floor. All 3 bedrooms have ocean vistas with two of them have full oceanfront vistas thru huge double sliding glass doors. The first of the oceanfront bedrooms has queen size bed and an attached bathroom. The other oceanfront bedroom has one queen bed along with a twin/trundle to allow for a max. of 4 people in that room. The third bedroom on first floor has 2 sets of bunk beds accepting 4 people to sleep in that room as well.
You can hear the roar of the surf when you fall asleep and then welcome it in the morning when you are woken up by little feet. Savor just opening the glass door and stepping out on the lower deck for a fabulous view of the ocean.

The second floor includes the living room, kitchen, dining room and a second master bedroom and bathroom. The second floor has a vaulted ceiling with multiple enormous windows including a huge bay window to provide a incredible amount of natural light into the home. Just step out onto the upper deck and you will have one of the most spectacular vistas of Emerald Isle.

The second floor master has a king size bed and features both an ocean view and a sound view out of its two windows.

Outside, there are two different decks with which to savor the ocean. The lower deck resides just outside of the first floor oceanfront rooms described earlier. This deck is completely shaded and is equipped with four adirondack chairs, foot rests, and side tables which makes for a great place to sit and watch the surf, read a book, have a drink and just appreciate the beach. The top deck, which has doubled in size, has a sizable dining table that seats up to 10 people which makes for a great place to eat a meal. There is another gathering space with a bench and two chairs as well as some very comfortable rocking chairs to help enjoy the awesome view of Emerald Isle.

As a family of 6 with 4 kids, we are keenly aware of just how much 'stuff' one must bring to the beach. We can help complimentary up some space by providing a Pack-n-Play, Bouncy Seat, and High Chair/Booster that are already at Xanadu West.

The kitchen is well equipped with an electric stove, microwave, refrigerator, dishwasher, two coffee makers including a traditional Mr. Coffee and a Keurig, deep fryer, slow cooker, blender, and large griddle. There is a nice dvd/video library including movies for both kids and adults for afternoon or evening viewing. There are games and puzzles as well for those in need of a break from the sun. Also, a charcoal grille is ready to help make great family meals.

We generally require a 7 nighttime stay during thr prime season. Linens including towels are supplied complimentary of charge during the prime season of June, July and August. We can arrange linens/towels at guest request in the other months during the off-season to be paid for as an additional charge by the renter. This accepts us to keep the nightly rental prices lower in the off-season.

For those that want to discover the island, there are plenty of activities away from the beach for everybody in your group. For the active: bicycling (units available on island), golf, kayak and boat units, mini-golf, amusement park, horseback riding, volleyball, water park, driving range, skating, off-shore fishing, kite-flying. For the sightseer and shopper: There is Morehead City, Beaufort waterfront, Swansboro waterfront stores and antiques, Emerald Isle stores, North Carolina Aquarium and more.

We hope you give us a try at Xanadu West!

Tips and Tricks to get the optimal New Bern rental home experience:

Sticking to a spending budget:

  • Reserve your rental as soon as possible. Rental schedules generally open a year in advance (or in September just after the Summer season ends). Many families reserve their Summer vacation rentals during Christmas and Thanksgiving gatherings. Reserve before these holidays for best selection.
  • Summer is the most expensive season in the New Bern area. Booking your New Bern vacation home in the Spring or Fall is our best tip for saving money on your rental home. Rental rates are lower, and you'll find a larger selection of suitable homes. Many vacationers use this strategy to find larger homes within budget, or to book an oceanfront vacation rental that would otherwise be unavailable during the Summer months. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook the holidays for a New Bern vacation! Who wouldn't love a holiday vacation on the coast? Christmas, Thanksgiving, and New Years Eve are great times to gather with family and friends at your favorite beach.
  • Active Duty and veterans of the US Armed forces may be qualified for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective property manager if your family qualifies for a price reduction or discount.
  • Booking websites usually offer renters an option to add trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which will generally cost anywhere between 1% - 5% of the booking price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for any missed vacation time as a result of personal medical-related issues or weather, as well as evacuation costs, such as an unanticipated hotel overnight or extra gas expenses. Trip insurance can be a a welcome relief if the unforeseen happens. Ask the property owner for additional information.
  • Many management companies supply New Bern area visitor guides which include money-saving deals, either offered directly by local companies, or by way of a relationship with the property management company and the business itself. You can also find visitors guide and coupon books at local shops and grocery stores.

How to choose the best rental in the New Bern area:

  • Choose a designated group leader, select your dates, and choose a spending budget.
  • Determine how many beds and what type of bedroom configuration your family requires. Oceanfront. Enlarged Deck. Great for families! has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our search.
  • Precise descriptions of bedrooms and bed counts & types is commonly available online. If not, email the host before you reserve your rental. Note that most properties list the maximum guest capacity, which usually includes sofa beds. You will need to establish what configuration is suitable for your vacation.
  • Do your family pets travel with you? Although a number of vacation homes allow pets or animals, guidelines and costs vary per property. Allowable pet type, breed, and size are often limited. Remember to ask the property manager before booking, and study your rental agreement! Extra fees or costs may be applied to your contract.
  • If there's a particular New Bern attraction you are enamored with, keep an eye out for homes that are either nearby, or those that cater especially to your requirements.
  • Suitable accessibility amenities can make or break a vacation for guests that require the use of a wheelchair. Confirm all necessary amenities are available and included before booking.

Know before you go:

  • We recommend storing the host's contact information in your smartphone.
  • Ask questions. You may want instructions for a hot tub, elevator or WIFI setup. Contact your owner. They are there to help! A brief telephone call can prevent lots of issues.
  • Lock your rental property while you are gone! Don't let crooks ruin your holiday.
  • Make a record of any issues with the property at check in, and immediately contact the property manager. We especially recommend e-mails and text messages, as they usually contain built-in time stamps that can be helpful if damages are attributed to your stay.
  • Be a good neighbor. Often times, nearby homes are occupied by local residents. Respecting noise limits and parking rules is the right thing to do.
  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local resident! Residents can usually help you find the best spots in town. Who better to ask where to get the best breakfast in town, have a great night out, or the best spots for fishing?
  • Double-check the property to confirm that you've packed all of your family's items on check-out day. Make sure to check garages, decks, and cabinets for hidden belongings. Remove everything from the refrigerator and take or dispose of leftovers.
  • Inspect the rental a final time and keep an eye out for any damage. We suggest walking through with the host whenever you can. If the property manager is not available, remember to take photographs of the rental to record its condition.
  • Leave feedback! Property managers rely on good reviews to inspire new reservations. They'll be grateful for your feedback. Alternatively, if something wasn't right, other families will appreciate that you share your experience and help them have the best future vacation. Remember to be objective. If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the property manager had any control over the issue, and if so, whether they responded reasonably to remedy it.
