"The house we stayed in is in much need of repair. Ceilings coming down or taped over in master bedroom. The landing of the stair case leading up to the upper deck very unstable and repaired with a piece of plywood. That being said, the ac worked great and the location was wonderful."

"Play purple Martin is an old house, but it has a ton of charm/ character. Each of the three rooms has its own queen size bed was perfect for our three adults. Also, great proximity to Springer point. Loved it."

"September 2016 Stay - Thank you OIR, We enjoyed our stay at the Purple Martin. The house had everything we needed during our stay. We especially enjoyed the sunsets and views from the Crows Nest. Looking forward to next year. Thank you, The Osornio family "

"June 2019 Stay
We enjoyed our vacation on Ocracoke and Ocracoke Island Realty as usual. Purple Martin was spotless when we arrived, and it was even available to us early. The house was comfortable and the amenities were wonderful. The crow's nest was nice to sit on in the evenings and watch stars. We may return later this summer depending on how things go at home; otherwise, we'll see you next summer! "

"November 2018 Stay
This is a great home with lots of room and character. It is quiet but not too far away from "downtown". This was our second stay in the home and our first "off season" visit. I know there are a lot of great rentals on the island but we love coming back to the Purple Martin. Sunrise photo was taken from the crow's nest."
