Vacation Rental in Historic District of Grapevine Texas
About Us: We are a team of two and love to travel around the world and only utilize VRBO (or similar) services versus hotels. For all you that rent by owner, I'm sure you understand.

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 houses.
