Built in the late 1800's, this super cool and eclectic duplex house is very clean, cozy, stylish one bedroom with King bed, one full bath, large kitchen and den that offers all modern conveniences of home. (If your are looking for a 2 Bedroom look at vrbo 424102) or note: ENTIRE house can be rented for a three bedroom, 2 bath, 2 kitchen, 2 den home which opens up via the laundry room. Entire house rental is $434 per night with a one time cleaning fee of $150 and a $300 REFUNDABLE security deposit.
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 zippered encased comfortable beds and watching your favorite movies on the main 60' Flat Panel or the Bedroom 32' LCD TV, 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. 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 plus Split Unit's (Newest Technology that hit the US Shores). The Master Bedroom (Guess which one Doc Slept in?) offers a KING size bed while the brand new leather couch has a comfortable queen pull out. Each mattress is encased in a zipped cover for your protection.
Guests in the 'Doc Holliday Too' 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 and leave it for the rest of your stay. No need to drive when you can walk to the fun vineyards, shops, restaurants and events in town. Grapevine is a fun, exciting, and safe place! Enjoy!
Please note ENTIRE house (Doc Holliday House and Doc TOO) can be rented together making the house a 3 bedroom, 2 bath, 2 kitchen and den home. It can be opened up via the laundry room. Entire house rental rate is $440 per night with a one time cleaning fee of $125 and a $300 REFUNDABLE deposit.
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 travelers 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 second stab at this so your feedback is very important.
Mary Ann Holliday purchased this house in 1992
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.
Late 1800's house where Doc Holiday rented for two months.

This home has all the amenities one might need while staying in the quaint historic town of Grapevine. We especially appreciated the little things like the single cup coffee, bottled water and snacks! The hosts have thought of everything to make your stay comfortable and pleasant. We have stayed in many homes through VRBO/HomeAway and this home tops the list! We will definately visit again.
I LOVED all the details! The minute you walk in you feel comfortable and at home. We loved sitting out on the front porch in the evening with s glass of wine and taking a stroll through the neighborhood looking at all the historic homes. We loved how close it was to downtown, well within walking distance to shopping, dining and wine tasting. The bed was very comfortable and we enjoyed the book of Grapevine history. My husband loved the huge TV. We will recommend your home to friends and family and will stay again our next trip to Grapevine.
Very clean and very cute!!! The decor was creative and just plain awesome!! It was the perfect place to stay...quiet, close to downtown and the bed was very comfortable!! Nice touches with snacks and Keurig!! Loved it...will be back!!
Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Doc Holliday 'Too' House. It was the perfect place to call home for a few weeks.
The house is well cared for and updated. It is just as described and very well stocked with necessities. There also were snacks,
water and a bottle of wine. The décor of the house is very inviting and fun !
You can walk out the front door and are only steps away from Main Street in Historic Grapevine. The owners provide a very detailed
book of information for the Grapevine area, which also include the DFW area; i.e., restaurants, shopping, activities, churches, etc. I found
this to be very beneficial.
The owners, Mary Ann and Rik, are very accommodating and easy to work with. Mary Ann checked in with me the first day to make sure everything
I have already reserved my next stay at this Wonderful House !
My wife and I love to spend time in Historic Grapevine. We enjoy the wine tours and the night life in downtown grapevine. We have stayed in many of the Vacation Rentals in Grapevine to try them out and determine which one is our favorite. The calendar has been booked every time for the Doc Holliday House and an opening finally was available. We immediately booked the house and we are so happy we did. The reviews do not do justice to this house. It is amazing. The other vacation rentals appear to be decorated with old hand me down products such as furniture, mis-matched dining ware, uncomfortable mattresses, pet odors...but the Doc Holliday House was like stepping into a classy well thought out resort room. The furnishings are super comfortable and clean. We prefer leather seating over fabrics as fabrics tend to hold who knows what. The King Bed was like sleeping at our own house. Also, the location was the best. We had a short walk to Main Street. Most of the other properties that advertise close to Main Street are really not, so beware.
WE WILL BE BACK! Thanks for the GREAT accommodations.
The most adorable apartment close to downtown Grapevine. We walked to Main Street and the local farmers market daily. The neighbors were extremely friendly and the apartment was very clean. There were so many added bonuses (snacks, water, bottle of wine, bathroom supplies) that were made available for free. The owner was very nice and helpful! If and when we ever return to this area for a visit, I will check to see if this location is available first! We loved our stay at the Doc Holiday House Too.
1 Block to Historic Main Street. There are no other properties or hotels closer than this gem. We are also located the closest to a wine tasting studio which is two houses down. Easily hop on/off the Wine Tour bus and explore 7 vineyards. Esparza's Tex Mex cafe is known as the, 'Margarita Capital of Texas', so be sure to walk up four houses and try a few of your own. Main Street is loaded with a bunch of cool eclectic shops and outstanding eateries (Non big box types).
