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 Dallas - Fort Worth (DFW)

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

Hi Roseanne,

Just a short note to let you know how much we enjoyed staying at your beautiful home Everything was wonderful and the house is equipped with more than what we expected! I will definitely recommend your house to my friends and if we come back to Grapevine we will definitely come stay again! 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!!

Comfortable

  • 4 of 5

The Merlot house was very comfortable and suited our needs. We were four adults, one couple and two singles and so the home was spacious and private enough for each party. We didn't use the single bed. It would be good for a person who doesn't require privacy. Everything worked well including in the kitchen except for ....maybe the frying pans could use an update as well as glassware?? The other parties thought it would have been nice to have a bedroom dresser for their clothes. These last few things are very minor however. Overall we were very satisfied. Thanks a million Roseanne.

All the comforts of home and a great location.

  • 5 of 5

The Merlot House was the perfect place for our stay in DFW. Minutes to the airport and we visited many venues in both Dallas and Fort Worth. It was a short drive to each place. Every evening when we returned to the Merlot house, it was like coming home. The fenced in back yard was handy for outdoor activity as well. We will stay again, on our next visit.

Gorgeous, immaculate, well maintained property. Cute transitional neighborhood. Furnished with the comforts of home. Ran into a snag with the dishwasher. Owner very responsive and came right out to get it fixed. Walked to downtown Grapevine for the festival. VERY happy with our choice!

Charming home!

  • 5 of 5

Our visit to Grapevine was delightful, thanks to Roseanne and her charming home. Just the right size and terrific floor plan to share with my son, his wife and twin daughters! My daughter-in-law stated that it was the cleanest rental she had ever stayed in and I agree! Thank you so much for sharing your lovely home with us.
