About the property

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 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.

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 Prairies & Lakes

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.

THE place to stay in Grapevine. Period.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Thank you so very much for such a wonderful review! It made my day when you wanted to stay longer and cancel your reservations at the hotel. I appreciate you taking the time to review us. Hope to have you back when in Texas! Best, Mary Ann

Book it now - Stop looking at other VRBO's

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to review our home. AND thank you for such a wonderful review! I love my job and love when someone enjoys our special home. I truly try to treat each guest as if it were my very own family coming for a visit. And I too am a "neat freak", I could not expect anyone to stay with us if I would not stay there myself. It is cleaned by an actual cleaning crew after each guest! Thank you again and do hope to have you ladies back for another "hen" party! :) All the Best, Mary Ann

Perfect house in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house to celebrate my Dad's 82nd birthday. Not only is the house walking distance to Gravevine Main Street but it is SO CUTE and the owners have thought of every little thing to make your stay a unique experience. When we arrived the owners had a bottle of wine and a birthday cake waiting for us which was a very nice surprise. The house is plenty of space for 4 adults. The beds were comfortable, kitchen very well stocked, and the living area very nice for sitting around and visiting with each other.

There is also a porch we used to enjoy the morning coffee provided. We absolutely loved our stay here and plan to come back in a few months!

Great weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Doc Holiday house for Labor Day weekend and were pleasantly surprised at how comfortable it was and the level of hospitality shown by Mary Ann. In addition to the house being spotless and prepped in advance for our arrival, all of the little additional touches (snacks, bottle of wine, water, extra blankets, extra toiletries, etc.) really made it feel like home. Highly recommended.

Best rental ever

  • 5 of 5

I have rented many houses on VRBO and have to say that by far this is one of the best. Mary Ann thought of everything. My wife was very impressed with the furnishings and amenities. We'd recommend Doc's to everyone and will definitely stay her again.
