About Holidaze Owners
Mark and Heather Kline
We are originally from Ohio! We lived there until we transferred to Chicago 20 years ago. We raised children, made great friends, and had a great life together in the Chicagoland area. 6 years ago we decided we wanted a warm weather vacation home and we came to Punta Gorda and fell in love with Southwest Florida! How can you beat the sunshine everyday, the sunsets on the harbor, the feel of the small town? We bought a home and traveled back and forth, always looking for ways to spend more time here! Being in the tree/ lawn care business and a 3rd grade teacher, we did our best to come as often as we could! Our friends and family have enjoyed our home for all these years as well and love this area as much as we do!
It became harder and harder to pull ourselves away from here, so 2013 we decided to make the change and reinvent ourselves so we could live here full time! We discovered Holidaze Boat Rental was for sale and it was so close to our home we could walk there. It seemed like the perfect answer! We bought the business and moved here in November, 2013 and have never regretted one minute of it. We do, however, miss our daughter, son-in-law and our granddaughter in Chicago, our many friends we left up there, and the rest of our families in Ohio.
Stop by our “waterfront property” and say hi! We love to meet new people from all over the world!
