Reviewer Comments:

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. We've already reserved for year five, and are counting down the days until our next visit. 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

Friday to Friday is the best way to vaca at the OBX. Only issue is the emergency phone # for the rental company was used and a response of any kind was not received.

Reviewer Comments:

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.

Owner's Response: 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.

Reviewer Comments:

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.

Owner's Response: 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.

Reviewer Comments:

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. With some new mattresses, new couch and chair cushions, and clean rugs - it would get four stars for the price.

Reviewer Comments:

We very much enjoyed our week! This was the first time we ever stayed "beachfront".......LOVED IT. 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!!! 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. 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.
