Just need someone to check the grounds. Lots of beer cans look to have fallen off the deck and are around the property.

Best value on the beach. Stayed in this place several times going back 20 years! Only issues is the 'owners suite' (separated basement area) is uninhabitable due to the mustiness

We’ve stayed in this house many times since 2000. The best beach and a great location. However, the property is in need of an upgrade. Furniture, appliances bathrooms etc haven’t been upgraded in the past 20 years, yet it rents for the same price as the newer homes that are larger and have more amenities. Addition of cargo lift was helpful.

we’ve rented this house before, so we knew what to expect. it’s like visiting your grandparent’s beach house, furnished by lazy-boy :) but you’re not here for the house, you’re here for the beach, and it’s wonderful, especially with the private beach access and the dune-top deck. house is clean, comfortable, laid-back.

House has the potential to be quite the little gem, just needs a little more TLC. Great location, great accommodations, love the layout of the place. Internally the house is beautiful, solid, very comfortable, it has many amenities. Outside furniture, decking and grounds need to be maintained better, pests need to be kept in check. Housekeeping a little better than average, responsiveness of agency started out strong then faded mid week. Would consider renting again.

We have been to this great house so many times that my grandchildren thought it was mine. Unlike the grand hotel like houses with umpteen bedrooms and a pool, this home features lazy boy recliners, time worn games and mounted fish. Best ocean front access, pet friendly, super views and amazing history (one of the first houses on the beach here.)

Another great vacation at Pharoah's Delight!

This was our fifth year staying in Pharoah's Delight. Another great vacation was enjoyed by all. We love this house on so many levels. It's perfectly located and has everything you need for a family vacation. We enjoyed the days on the beach soaking up sun, playing in the waves, watching dolphins go by, and reading novels for hours on end. The evenings were spent on the decks playing music, enjoying beautiful sunsets, breathing in the ocean air, and watching for wildlife (we enjoyed seeing a family of deer, four of them, spending time on the dunes, and even jumping over the boardwalk).<br/>We'll be back again for year number six! I'm already counting down the days.

Our visit was fantastic!!! The house easily accommodated our large family and dog. It was very clean, had a very well stocked kitchen, amazing views, and endless porches, decks and boardwalks. When the internet failed, we received immediate help on what turned out to be a pretty big problem. A great deal of time was spent having it repaired, and they followed up with us the next day to see that all was well. The cargo lift was so very wonderful for moving the belongings of 10 people upstairs, as well as a big help bringing up groceries. The home was convenient to all the good things about Corolla - food, shopping, library, the lighthouse. Working with the Carolina Shores professional staff was a pleasure.

Perfect in everyway!

This was our fourth year staying at Pharoah's Delight, and as in years past, we had a wonderful time. This house is perfect in so many ways. It's on the beach, even on crowded days your area of the beach remains somewhat secluded, it's dog friendly (as is the beach), it's a Friday-Friday rental, and it's a comfortable home all around. If you're looking for a glamorous house, this is not it. Pharoah's Delight is what a true beach house is all about. <br/>We've already reserved for year five, and are counting down the days until our next visit.<br/><br/>Also, the management and maintenance staff were wonderful. Regarding the house, my only suggestion would be to downsize on the glasses and dishes. This would help leave room for groceries and provide a little extra kitchen space. Please let the owners know how much we enjoy staying at their home every year. All the best, Tracey
Dear Tracey,
Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. I am very happy to hear that our staff made your feel at home. This is really one of the things that we try to maintain in our company. Hoping to see you again soon.

Dear Mike,
Thank you for the wonderful review of PHAROAH'S DELIGHT!
We are delighted you had such an amazing time at this super oceanfront vacation home.
I do apologize you did not receive a call back from the after-hours person. Would you be so kind to provide me with more details?

We have been coming to Pharoah's Delight for many years and it feels like home to us. Although we still love the house, we had an unfortunate experience with the management. Early one morning an outlet in the bathroom, which had not been recently used began to smoke. Smell of an electrical fire permeated the house. We rushed down to pull the fuse and called the rental company. Four calls and 8 hours later, a morose, unapologetic handyman arrives to fix the problem. It may have seemed small to him, but the idea of an electrical fire in a house with small children was frightening to us. The company's lack of responsiveness was surprising.
Dear Suzanne,
Thank you for taking the time to review PHAROAH'S DELIGHT. I do certainly apologize for our own staff not responding immediately however this property has its own private maintenance tech who we repeatedly attempted to contact. When we finaly gave up on him we had our own tech go to the home. Sunday afternoon travel to Corolla made this a very slow process. We do apologize and will suggest that the homeowner only uses our team in the future.

There was very little information/follow thru from the rental company. We would bot rent thru their agency again if not necessary. Also bed linens and towels were not provided. We have been visiting the obx for 15-20 years and have never ran into this before. All linens/towels have always been provided. The home itself it a great value for an oceanfront property. Its old bit thats part of the nostalgia.
Dear Rhonda,
Thank you for taking the time to review PHAROAH'S DELIGHT. I certainly apologize that you felt our agency did not follow through with you adequately. Would you be so kind by providing me more specifics?
Each homeowner we represent makes the decision is they would like to supply linens or not. We do lay that out on our website and on the rental agreement as well.

Overall it was okay. The location was great - right on the beach but not a ton of people. Somehow missed the fat we needed to order linens which came the day after we arrived. The place was quarky - which we like - but it was pretty downtrodden really dusty. Some of us have hayfever - and we coughed most of the week. The beds were very uncomfortable - like the old hard hotel mattresses. <br/><br/>With some new mattresses, new couch and chair cushions, and clean rugs - it would get four stars for the price.
Dear Tim,
Thank you for taking the time to review Pharoah's Delight!
I will be glad to share your suggestions and comments with the homeowner. They really want thier guests to have an enjoyable time at their home.
We look forward to serving you again!

We very much enjoyed our week! This was the first time we ever stayed "beachfront".......LOVED IT.<br/>The house was generally clean, but could've been a little cleaner. Quite a few pieces of furniture had dust & the throw rugs were definitely not vacuumed or shook out......SAND!!!<br/>One recommendation would be to purge some of the kitchen items to try to leave at least one empty cabinet shelf for the dry goods we brought. I emptied a shelf into an empty container we brought stuff in & then put it back at the end of the week. Definitely don't need all the tupperware that is there.<br/>The property mgmt co was professional when making my reservation, however when checking in to pick up the keys they were not in the office & NEVER contacted me to tell me what to do. The business next door to the office helped me to find the keys...thank goodness. When checking out to return the keys, there was nobody in the office again! It all worked out, but I think there should have been better communication.

Another wonderful vacation!

This was our third year renting Pharoah's Delight. The house felt like home and the beach was wonderful! This property is dog friendly and provides a Friday to Friday rental. Arriving and departing is hassle free. I highly recommend a deep sea fishing trip with OBX Marina. Keith, the owner, set up a great 1/2 day fishing trip where we fished in the Atlantic. We caught Mahi-mahi and mackerel which was enjoyed by everyone the following night. The marina is about 1 1/2 hours away on Roanoke Island. Well worth the trip!
Dear Tracey,
Thank You for taking the time to review your vacation here on the Outer Banks staying in PHAROAH'S DELIGHT.
We are glad the property met your expectations for the 3rd year!!
We hope to see you for your 4th year with us in 2016.

Pharoah's Delight is one of the original houses on the block being that it was built in 1983. The house itself has a "home away from home" feel to it. Mostly everything is on one floor where you will find 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a kitchen, a dining room, a living room, and a separate area for games or for another guest to sleep. This may sound like a lot for one floor but it was very spacious and with a group of 10 we never felt like we were on top of each other. There is also ample space to sit, whether it's in the living room watching TV, in the screened off porch area to play games, or outside on both decks. There is room for all. Downstairs there is 2 outdoor showers and a bathroom which is great if you feel like showering when you get off the beach and don't feel like tracking it through the house. The house is far enough away to feel secluded from traffic and other houses nearby but also a short enough drive (10 minutes) to the grocery store and the lighthouse. We didn't want to leave after our week was up!

Pharoah's Delight, the best house on the beach!

This was our second year staying at Pharoah's Delight. It's the quintessential beach house. One of the oldest houses on Corolla. Located on a great part of the beach. Very private and comfortable. It has everything you need for a great vacation. We've already reserved for next year. The best 's one of the few houses with a Friday to Friday rental, and it's dog friendly. You literally sail in and out, making for a stress free drive in and out. We are already counting down the days until next year.

This was our 4th year at Pharoah's Delight. We've come to feel so comfortable there that it's almost like coming "home" again each summer! We enjoyed the new deck tremendously and the additional furniture meant no one had to sit on the floor to watch a movie.

One of the best vacations ever. In-laws our kids and grandchildren had a fantastic time at Pharoah's Delight. A true beach house, not a mini-mansion,nothing pretentious, a true kick back and enjoy home. Knowing that it was one of the original houses on the beach at Corolla was a very touching experience. Loved it, hope to be a guest again next years, the good Lord willing.

Over the years (I first "discovered" the OBX in 1986), I've stayed in many different rental properties, mostly on the North Banks. Many were very lovely, but none caused us to want to return to that exact house. This was our third summer at Pharoah's Delight and we hope there will be many more! It's not grand or glorious like some of the ritzy new places that have gone up around it, but it's solid, very comfortable, and feels like our "home away from home".

We stayed for a week and were very pleased with everything. The house is very well stocked with books, games, movies, beach toys, and kitchen needs. The beach was never crowded. We loved the views of the ocean from the house and the upper deck was fantastic!
