Property description

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 $434 per night with a one time cleaning fee of $150 and a $300 REFUNDABLE deposit.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1992

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Grapevine, TX, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Late 1800's house where Doc Holliday rented for two months. Within the Historic District One Block from Main Street Two Houses down from Wine Tasting Room (many more close by) Private Parking Wi-Fi (Blazing Fiber Speed) FIOS TV. More channels than time to watch Flat Panel TV in Living and Master Bedroom BlueRay DVR with NetFlix
