“Creme de la Creme” translates to “The Best of the Best”, and upon arrival, you will realize that the name is a perfect fit for this luxurious estate! As soon as you enter the home, it is clear that no detail has been overlooked. From the coffered ceilings to the custom trim, every amenity in this home has been thoughtfully achieved. Every feature of this home has been thoughtfully planned out to ensure an experience of luxury and comfort. Whether it’s the view of the ocean or easy access to the beach, this home was designed to provide you with the most memorable beach vacation. Eleven exquisitely appointed bedrooms are all furnished in rich woods and upscale imported linens, with bamboo flooring and flat-screen TVs. Ten master bedrooms each offer a private bathroom with Italian tile, imported granite vanities and spa-inspired showers. You’ll love the exterior of the home as much as the interior, with all three levels of decks offering stereo sound and a stunning outdoor area including private pool with waterfall, hot tub, poolside bar, and kiddie pool, all surrounded by professionally landscaped grounds. A refreshing dip in the ocean or a reflective walk on the beach are just a short stroll away from this gorgeous estate. Located in the Whalehead community in Corolla, this home is close to the heart of Corolla, including shopping, dining, entertainment, and historical activities.

On the top level, floor to ceiling windows infuse beautiful natural light into the great room and offer a glimpse of the ocean. Perfectly designed for entertaining, the living area features soaring ceilings, exotic bamboo floors, ample seating with sofas and arm chairs, seasonal gas fireplace and a 60” HDTV with surround sound. Ocean view dining is available at two tables that seat 24. Doors open to two sun decks with outdoor speakers. The gourmet kitchen is finished with distinctive custom cabinetry, pendant lighting, Italian tile floors, shimmering granite countertops with stainless sinks and casual bar seating. Chef’s skills will come alive when using the stainless steel appliances, including 5-burner gas cooktop with pot filler, double wall ovens, two microwaves, separate full size refrigerator and freezer, beverage center and two dishwashers for easy clean up. Elevator allows you to unload groceries with ease. The top floor is completed with three exquisite king master suites and a centrally located half bathroom.

The middle level offers five elegant bedroom suites, a private media den/office and an expansive wrap-around covered deck. Four master bedrooms are furnished with king size beds, two offer deck access and one has a private balcony. A fifth suite is outfitted with two twin beds and offers deck access. French doors open to a handsome media room/office with a coffered ceiling, bamboo floor, sofa seating, 60” HDTV with surround sound, pub table with stools and direct deck access. Laundry room with double washer and dryer is located on the middle level for convenience.

The ground level is dedicated to indoor recreation amenities, including a home theater with a 120” viewing screen, THX 7.1 surround sound and stadium seating for 12. Those with competitive spirits can gather to test their skills in a stately recreation lounge featuring Italian tile floors, coffered ceilings, billiards table, LED wall-mounted flat screen TV over a pub table bar with stool seating. The media area is comprised of a plush wrap-around sofa for gaming or watching your favorite show on the 60” HDTV with Xbox and blu-ray player. The custom wet bar has a granite countertop with sink, tile backsplash and a host of stainless steel appliances including a full-size refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, and commercial icemaker.

The rec room doors open to unveil a haven of outdoor amenities. A Gunite saltwater pool with waterfall is the highlight of the outdoor area, whose custom design includes two wet decks for in-pool lounging, built-in seating, and an inset kiddie pool for the little ones. Next to the pool is a resort-style pergola over a hot tub that accommodates 8 and a shaded seating area to create a sanctuary of leisure and rejuvenation. The pool deck is equipped with ample seating and lounging options for sunbathing under clear coastal skies. A cabana bar offers a shady retreat and is outfitted with granite countertops, sink and a gas grill for informal BBQ meals. Casual bar seating is available for eight or meals can be served at an outdoor picnic table. These amenities are surrounded by professional landscaping, outdoor speakers, cabana half bathroom and two outdoor showers.

"We loved everything! The house is beautiful and well stocked. Twiddy was awesome and replied immediately when we needed them!"

Annette   ·  Stayed October 2022

"The house was clean and kitchen well stocked with everything you needed. The house was steps away from beach access!"

Theresa   ·  Stayed September 2022

"Everyone in our group LOVED the pool area and the BEDS!! The house was so comfy we booked same week for 2023."

Tavonia   ·  Stayed September 2022

"Loved the spaciousness and the amenities. Also, liked the fact that the majority of the rooms are masters with their own restrooms."

Angela   ·  Stayed August 2022

"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"

"Incredible pool!"

Timothy   ·  Stayed August 2021

"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."

Valerie   ·  Stayed March 2021

"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!"
