"The house was perfect for all 14 women that go on a beach trip every year at this time. We had to change the date for next year and this house was unavailable but we were able to find one that is exactly the same house so we are thrilled."
"This home is beautiful! Close to beach and plenty of space for our family of 27. The pool area is the best in all of the houses that we have stayed!"
"Creme de la Creme has plenty of space for large groups, yet it offers plenty of private areas for those times when you just want to relax and read a book. The pool area is the go to hangout spot after a long day on the beach. We love this home due to the proximity to the beach access. It makes runs to and from the beach very fast. The newly upgraded beach access is much easier to navigate as well which was a nice bonus."
"Creme de la Creme is a beautiful well maintained home. Our extended family loved and appreciated our week long stay in OBX. The pool area is wonderful with comfortable lounge chairs, the kitchen is well stocked , and the beach access is close by. We appreciate the attention the owners give to their home. Thank you for giving our family wonderful memories for our summer this year."

"Pool area Ice makers Theater room Kitchen"
"Large, airy rooms. Adequate space for people to spread out. Fantastic pool area"
"The pool space, theater room and overall layout of the house were great. Walk to the beach was also super easy!"
"Spacious, clean, lots of amenities. Close to the beach"
"We love this house!! They layout is amazing and allowed for all of us to come together yet enough room to also have privacy if needed. This is our favorite place to vacation"
"We loved everything! The house is beautiful and well stocked. Twiddy was awesome and replied immediately when we needed them!"
"The house was clean and kitchen well stocked with everything you needed. The house was steps away from beach access!"
"Everyone in our group LOVED the pool area and the BEDS!! The house was so comfy we booked same week for 2023."
"Loved the spaciousness and the amenities. Also, liked the fact that the majority of the rooms are masters with their own restrooms."
"Creme de la Creme is a big, beautiful home in a perfect location. This was our 10th year in Corolla and we've found the pool is one of the best parts of this build. Loved the very short walk to the beach. Ice machine is a huge plus that you'll always want once you have and miss greatly when you don't. We keep a cooler poolside so that we don't have to go far and keep from tracking water in the house. The deck furniture is cheap and lacking compared to other homes. Kitchen was well labeled, but the items that were supposed to be inside were not there. Sometimes the drawer would be completely empty. Gas burners on range were very finicky – all or nothing."
Thank you for your stay and feedback. Please note we have purchased new deck furniture which will be installed in November for future guests to enjoy! We hope you stay with us again!
"Well appointed kitchen. Great pool. Lots of decks."
Thank you for staying at Creme de la Creme. We will add a mop and bucket to the property as suggested and have made arrangements to have a contractor clean all patios and chairs on check out days going forward. Some other improvements we made recently are replacing the grill and buying new patio chairs which will be installed in early November. We hope you stay with us again.
"This was the 4th or 5th year that we stayed at the Creme De La Creme. It is just the perfect size to fit all of our family under one roof. We have always found the home to be well-stocked and comfortable for everyone"
"The house was lovely. Decorated beautifully, room to spread out. We were a group of women and it was so nice to all have a bedroom/bath. Loved the fireplace in February!"
"Crème de la Creme"
"This was an incredible home! We hope we get a chance to stay there again."
"Creme de la Creme was an amazing home! The layout of the interior was perfect for preparing and eating group dinners. There were ample amenities to keep the many children (12!!) in our group entertained. When they weren't at the beach or in the pool, they occupied the theater room or could be found in front of the many TV's! The finishes and furniture really put this house over the top. The beach access is almost as good as being in an oceanfront home yourself. It was so easy to run back to the house to grab supplies, food, or beverages!! The outside pool area was amazing for just hanging out. The pool was large enough to have space for all the kids and adults. It never felt crowded. At night, the pool and hot tub were amazing for stargazing and relaxing after dinner. Many late nights were spent in the pool and hot tub. Only minor issues with getting some of the home theater equipment to work properly. Luckily, we had some tech savvy people in our group that got it figured out. The posted instructions were clear and easy to follow. We look forward to coming back to Creme de la Creme."
"Great Home in a nice location. The walk to the beach isn't far."
"Me and my entire family enjoyed their stay at "Creme de la Creme". I was notified that the house was ready for entry at 2:00PM. Most of us arrived at 3:00 PM to a wonderful experience. The house was immaculate. Because the children (7 of them) were all still having school remote, we were able to use two different rooms to accommodate as classrooms for their daily class time. When we arrived one of the bed slacks was broken and left in the room, but it was immediately fixed after I made a call. Even though the pool wasn't open we used the hot tub and went to the beach almost everyday. There were plenty of kitchen utensils and cookware. We are already planning a return trip for next year."
"Creme de la Creme is beautiful! It looks way better in person. The pictures did not do it justice. The kitchen is stocked with everything that you could ever need. I can't wait to go back next year!"
"Clean, modern, up to date. Great home."
"Great home, great amenities EXCEPT many TV!s had to be connected to internet and the theater was out of service until late Thursday afternoon..."
"Beautiful home. Don't particularly care for the bunk beds, but I guess they're okay"
