|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
This super cool and eclectic duplex house is clean, cozy, stylish two bedroom,(one King and one queen 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 a forgotten toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, creme rinse, soaps, hair dryer, everything 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 King in the Master and a Queen in second bedroom. 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!
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 $460 per night with a one time cleaning fee of $150 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 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
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 Holliday rented for two months.

My husband and I, along with our daughter and son-in-law, stayed at the Doc Holliday House for the Sweetheart Wine Trail in Grapevine. The location is ideal if you want to explore Grapevine along Main Street. Mary Ann was so helpful with her first response and all communication with us throughout the process. We want to thank her so much for her quick response to our request to rent, the helpful information and suggestions in the book provided in the house, for the thoughtful and nice extras provided here to make our trip even better, and for allowing us to enjoy this charmingly decorated and comfortable house. We definitely hope to have a chance to stay here again!
We loved this house for our girls weekend. We were able to walk to everything on main st. Mary was wonderful and the house was as cute as the pics. We will be coming back here!!!!
Our family of 4 stayed at the Doc house and loved it! Great home, and great location. I've only used VRBO twice, but this experience was much better than my first. So many extras provided here, and great communication with owner. Will definitely stay here again if ever back in the Grapevine area.
The house was lovely and very clean. It had everything you needed plus more.
Attention to detail like I've never seen before--that's a summation of Doc's. So many little things on top of a cute and comfy environment make you feel so welcomed and taken care of, that you definitely want to cancel your other upcoming reservation at the Embassy Suites like we did. The kitchen is awesome and fully stocked. There's even little treats in the fridge and on the counters. Thoughtful extras are all around the house. And it's 1 1/2 blocks to Main Street! You just can't do any better than this place. Kudos to the super friendly Mary Ann, who texts you just enough to make you feel welcome and available, while really feeling like this is your home away from home.
I can't say enough just how much I loved this house... It was perfectly decorated - VERY clean (I'm a neat freak)...and NO attention to detail was missed. The home is a perfect eccletic mix of modern, vintage and rustic chic. A group of three girls planned our yearly weekend here and we couldn't be happier the first home we confirmed cancelled our booking. I have stayed in many, many VRBO's and this is one of my favorites. The owners go above and beyond to ensure your stay is comfortable and well equipped. It is walking distance to Main street and just 2 houses away from many wine tasting places and fabulous restaurants. She takes the guess work out of which restaurants to choose - as they are listed on the chalkboard fridge! The Old Cafe breakfast was to die for - as was Bob's steak and chops. The owner is very responsive by email or text. Book it - you will not be disappointed.
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 wine tastings. 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).
