Musty and moldy

Overall Rating
1
This home is full of mold on the ceilings upstairs. Very musty smell throughout the house. The rooftop perch is unsafe, if you weigh more than 100 lbs I would not climb the creaky old wood stairs, It is a long way down. The kitchen has one serving bowl, not a single pan with a lid. The bedrooms upstairs are from the early 60s.... We have been to Okracoke over 10 times... This was just not acceptable for visitors. I suggested they remove it until the owner makes it safe. There are plenty of very nice houses for comparable prices, choose something else.

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!

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.
