Overview

Grapevine House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom 1 Bath 1 Block from Main Street. COOL place

This super cool and eclectic duplex house is clean, cozy, stylish two bedroom, one full bath, large kitchen and den that offers all modern conveniences of home.

We offer a complimentary Welcome Wine, coffee pods for our Keurig coffee maker, granola bars and biscotti, water bottles, snacks for those late night munchies. We also provide toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, creme rinse, soaps, and every thing needed for a great stay.

Take a trip back in time while sleeping in comfortable beds and watching your favorite movies (on one of 3) 32' LCD TVs, or surf the internet with blazing fast fiber. A HGTV Designer provided most of the furnishings and colors in this house. The bathroom is brand new and offers a walk in shower. The bathroom is period correct with the tile work and white granite counter top. Wall attached hair dryer provided.

New plumbing was installed which provides fresh tasting Grapevine Water without that “Old” mineral taste from most older homes in Grapevine. No metal pipes here, PEX piping provides flavor like the Springs.

Central AC and Gas Heat in every room. Two bedroom (Guess which one Doc Slept in?) with a Queen in each. Each mattress is encased in a zipped cover for your protection.

Guests in the 'Doc Holliday' house are just one block from Main Street, literally around the corner from Esparza's, and two houses from one of Grapevine’s many Wine Tasting rooms. Play it safe by not driving or walking long distances after enjoying your days at many Wineries, Festivals, and award winning restaurants along Main Street.

Don't miss a ride on Grapevine's Vintage Railroad traveling to Fort Worth's Historic Stockyards for an unbelievable feel of the old west. Enjoy a leisure ride on the Grapevine Tour Bus and Grapevine Wine Tour Bus or grab a famous Esparza’s Margarita on your journey to Main Street (which is only four houses down), or stroll back to Doc Holiday's house after an encouraging pitcher.

Safely park your vehicle in the driveway and leave it for the rest of your stay. No need to drive when you can walk to the fun vineyards and events in town. Grapevine is a fun, exciting, and safe place! Enjoy!

About Mary Ann Holliday

We love to travel around the world and only utilize VRBO (or similar) services versus hotels. We finally decided to make the leap and offer our special property to travellers with similar needs as ours. This is not our full time job but rather a conduit of enjoyment. I (Rik) juggle many different things. I have been involved in Telecommunications for over 25 years. I also restore 1969-70 Shelby Mustangs with a NASCAR team to bring a unique and limited vehicle to the road. The 'Better' half (Wife) is retired from the airlines and currently manages the house and our two daughters along with a few other properties that will hopefully become VRBO's some day (Pending the outcome of this treasure...). This is our first stab at this so your feedback is very important.

Mary Ann Holliday purchased this house in 1992

Why Mary Ann Holliday chose Grapevine

The 'Historic District' within Historic Grapevine is where “its” all happening. No question that all the action is within the Historic District and the 'Doc Holliday' house is smack dab in the middle. Have you ever heard the phrase, “6 Degrees of Separation”? Well this story is more like 2 degrees of separation. I purchased a home from an older lady years ago whom was born and raised in Grapevine. She has since passed and would be pushing 100 if still alive. During the closing process of the house transaction, she noticed my name (Richard Holliday). She asked me if I was, “Kin” to Doc Holliday. I explained that I was and went through the story...She then shared with me that her aunt owned a house and rented a room to Doc Holliday for two months. She put me in contact with the current owner of the house of which I approached (They didn’t know the story) and I asked them if they had an interest in selling. They contacted me months later as they decided to move out West. The transaction was complete and I now own a house that my Great Great Great Grandfather slept in.

What makes this house unique

Late 1800's house where Doc Holliday rented for two months.

Perfect Weekend

  • 5 of 5
Loved this house, great location and even greater owners. Mary Ann is a joy to work with. She has put together the best Welcome Guide, directions to every place you would want to go and lots of restaurant info. The location is perfect, safe residential neighborhood close to downtown. If our travels bring us back to the Dallas area, we would stay here again.

This was my second time staying at one of Mary Ann's properties and my wife and I could not be happier with the experience. The house is stocked with everything you could possibly need from coffee to extra toiletries. They even provide an e-reader for you to use. If you are staying in or around Grapevine then you won't be disappointed if you stay here. We will be coming back next time we visit Grapevine.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed in many places in our travels but have never experienced such a welcoming feeling as in this home. The decor is just perfect!! We felt completely at home and it was very relaxing. The shopping/restaurants are awesome and just a short walk away. We will definitely stay here again!! And would recommend it to our family/friends.

It was very charming! As soon as I walked in the door I felt at home. It was very clean, I loved the way it was decorated. I liked the outside patio. Close to Main Street, we could of walked.

Amazing taste of texas

  • 5 of 5
We were here in Metroplex on business and it was very refreshing to stay in somewhere else rather than a hotel change. The accommodations were welcoming and warm. restaurants and other places of business were in walking distance.

We definitely will make the Doc Holiday House a place to stay when we are in the DFW area again.

The location is great. House is nicely updated. And we loved all the snacks, waters, and even a bottle of wine. Plus, there is everything you could possibly need in the kitchen. Cooking at home is the main reason we like home rentals, and we can cook anything in this kitchen.
Mary Ann is super responsive in her communication. We've stayed twice, and we will be back!
