About Roseanne S.

My husband, a former motorcross and supercross competitor, and I love saving and restoring old homes. We are real estate agents, investors, remodelers and for fun we like 'looking for the next project'. Every now and then we'll pack an overnight bag and spend a long weekend at The Merlot House and enjoy everything that Grapevine has to offer. Sharing our home with others has given us the opportunity to meet some great people and make new friends.

Why Roseanne S. chose Grapevine

We enjoy all of the festivals and special events in the area especially at Christmas time. In the summer we spend a lot of time time on Lake Grapevine so the location works well for us. We love the real small town feel Grapevine has to offer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was a great location with plenty of privacy and we felt right at home from the start. Sorry for taking so long to send this note. Thanks again for having us and I hope someday to come back and meet you!

Have a great day and a great 2011!!

Little Jewel in a big city

  • 5 of 5
GIRLS TRIP for 5.....Central Tx teachers had a great get-a-way to Grapevine for 2 nights. I found this cute, comfy house by googling "Girl's Trip" suggestions and saw that other groups had rented this house for a gathering of friends.
House was easy to find once we got to Grapevine, parking was enough for 3 cars, entry was easy and we found a cute, comfy home to relax and reconnect with friends. When we got there, the air was on, ceiling fans in each room made for a comfortable setting on a HOT August day. Furnishings were very unique and bathrooms were very roomy and loved the fluffy white towels. Each bedroom was perfect and the beds were made for a queen... Kitchen was very modern and had most anything you needed although we only used the oven and fridge.
Welcome book on ottoman was very helpful, including maps and suggestions of where to eat. We felt safe in the nice neighborhood and it was a very quite street. Do be aware that you are very close to the airport (which can be a good thing) but we did hear those 'jet engines' doing their mag checks as my husband said. LOL...he's a pilot and I'm a former FA so it was not a problem. Unless you know that sound, you might think it's just the weather.
The keyless entry was nice.
This would be a great place for a family too as we noticed a pack n play in the closet and the yard out back would be good in cooler weather. There is a small sitting/grilling area on the side out back. We did not use this as it was a VACATION and we treated ourselves to eating out. Even ordered in one night by using Roseanne's book for suggestons. Enjoyed sitting at the antique dining table for 4.
There is a TV /DVD and internet service there too. Internet was working great.
Communication with the owners was a breeze and I would recommend this VRBO to anyone.
Thanks for such a fun trip. Look forward to staying at another one of your properties.

Lovely home

  • 5 of 5
Thank you Roseanne and Roy for sharing your beautiful home. Wished we could of stayed longer. This property is close to everything, a stroll to Main Street, Dallas area, sightseeing and close to my family in Flower Mound. (No Roy, you did not leave a can of paint out in the open). The home was clean and highly recommended. Your listing of the Merlot House was true to its description. The only thing that we could find or should I say not find was in the second bathroom, no table or area where you could put your toiletries. Maybe between the two sinks, a table or counter of some sort. This property will most definitely be on my list for next time when I am in the area.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Linda! LOL...I must be getting senile in my old age! I thought I had left that can of paint on the counter. I agree regarding a place to put toiletries. Just the other day I was looking at the space to try to figure something out. I am glad you enjoyed your visit. Come back anytime! -Roseanne

Perfect Girl's weekend getaway

This is a wonderful house in a great location. It has everything we'd hoped for and more. The house is very well furnished and comfortable, in a great little quiet neighborhood just a short distance from the shops & restaurants. We had beautiful weather, and were able to enjoy the beautiful backyard and outside dining. It's obvious the owners take great care in upkeep of this beautiful home. It lived up to the photos.

We all agreed we will plan another trip to the area and stay in the charming home again.

Never been in such a beautiful house before. All was so a lot more beautiful as already on the pictures.
All was unfailingly perfect and clean.
Especially Roseanne, you have been so friendly and care for all of our questions, despite the fact that we'd never seen or known us before.
Thank you again a lot and we hope to stay again in this wonderful house, when we ever come back to Texas.
All the best for you and your husband.
Highly recommended for everyone.

2012 Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Roseanne, many thanks to you and your husband for allowing us to stay in your home. It was truly that "home". With all the great amenities and us bringing our tent to camp out back and hammock for early morings we felt at home. Great location quiet area. convient to all attractions. Our 9 day stay just wasn't long enough. We have and will continue to tell our friends and family to look you up when they make the trip to Dallas. If we can make a suggestion we loved the smoker however we also love to grill at home and the grill that was there was not large enough to cook for 6 ppl . A gas grill would be nice. :) Thanks again we will contact you again when we are ready to come see a game. like when the Eagles or 49ers play against Dallas... lol

Owner's Response: Hi Ron and Patricia! Thanks for taking the time to write a wonderful review! I agree regarding the grill...I've been meaning to upgrade it and will definitely do so soon. Do give me a call (or email) when you get ready to come back. Remember we have another home really close to the Cowboys Stadium too. And thank you for choosing our home and taking such good care of it! Best Wishes-Roseanne

This is our third stay at the Merlot House. Iit is a great property. The large back yard and patio are a great asset. The location is fabulous. It is withing walking distance of a number or good downtown restaurants. We highly recommend this property to others interested in a very enjoyable experience in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
