"Lovely house, great beach and town. Some of the plumbing fixtures in the residence needed attention badly; at least the toilet was fixed withing 36 hours."

"Loved the Mary Francis. House built in 1925 but updated nicely while not destroying the charm of an older home. Would definitely stay there again."

"Lovely classic Ocracoke home with comfort and charm. Lovely decor. Great location. Perfect for my family of 4 and our small dog. It would be more convenient if this home included linens and towels, but besides that it has everything and we enjoyed our stay. "

"Beautiful home which felt like home - Thank you so much for this fabulous house for my son and daughter in law to stay with their dog!! It is such a gem hidden but fabulous location. Sad to see new monster houses being built nearby, but it only makes the charm of this house that much better. They appreciated the bottle of wine and wanted me to thank you. We hope to see you again. We love Ocracoke."

"April 2019 Stay
We stayed in the Mary Francis house for a week in late April, 2019. We arrived after hours without any issue. Our welcome packet was easily accessible at the realty office. The house was spotless when we got there and well stocked with the types of essentials needed for our stay (paper products, cleaning supplies, etc.). We had one issue during the week with the A/C unit completely shutting down one evening. It wasn't urgent as it was quite cool at the time, but it was taken care of the next day and we had no other problems with it. We've rented through OIR many times over the years and have always found them to be very helpful and attentive to our needs. And the off-peak season rates provide a great value. We selected the Mary Francis because it accepts pets and is close to the heart of the village. We found the furnishings very comfortable and loved the big front porch."

"August 2018 Stay
The Mary Francis was a wonderful place to stay! We loved the it is one of the older homes on the island. The renovations done allow for the perfect combination of original charm and modern convenience. We were greeted with a warm note and a bottle of wine from the owners. Very nice touch! We love that the Mary Francis allows dogs and our dog, Millie, was very comfortable and loved to hang out on the front porch. We called her our "island girl". Be sure to bring a bed for your dog as all of the floors are hardwood. (We brought two for our spoiled girl.) This was a lovely, comfortable, well-appointed home for a glorious week on Ocracoke!"

"September 2017 Stay
Although our vacation was divided by Maria, our stay at The Mary Frances was outstanding! Home away from home. This house has everything you need for a lovely and relaxing stay! Kudos to the new owners for keeping the history and wonderful accommodations intact "
