About David Tezak

I like a clean, well-organized, friendly environment that offers our visitors a place they can call their own beachfront home. It is what I would want. So I have created through the years that kind of place. I believe it’s a reflection on my laid back personality, and my stride for perfection. I like to keep things simple and hassle free.

David Tezak purchased this house in 1989

Why David Tezak chose Fort Myers Beach

This is a beautiful historical Florida property built in 1928 by Captain Guy HoLLiday a ship captain from New England. It has for over the years been a summer retreat for many locals and visitors throughout the world. During the 40’s many of the world II training pilots frequented the Holliday house during their off time, and is one of the last remaining ground floor properties on the beachfront. Our location is probably one of the best on the beach, located within walking distance to most everything, Grocery store, bay oaks recreation center, the town pool and library, trolley stop, and Times square and all the restaurants and shops.

What makes this house unique

We are located directly on the beachfront as close to the water as you could get,with beautiful views of the gulf. The benefits and not only the location of the property, but the convenience of being directly on the beachfront, where you don't have to lug you stuff from locations across the street, or finding a bathroom, just simply walk in and get your cold drink and food and enjoy the beach 24/7. No Hassle!

If you're on the fence about this one, don't be. Go ahead and book it. David was nothing less than exceptional and as accommodating as he could have possibly been. This is an excellent location. Many of the hotels and condos around this area go for a lot more than he asks for, and this place is private and home-y! Everything is within walking distance, and I mean everything. Just a short drive from Naples and Everglades City (go air-boating)! We will definitely be visiting again!

The front unit is EXACTLY as described! Perfect for the beach lover. David & his wife are very friendly & helpful. We watched fireworks with them & the couple in the back unit. Nights out under the tiki were wonderful & we had the absolute BEST view at all times from our window in the living room. I cooked most of our meals & had everything (except the food) needed to do whatever I was cooking. We can not wait to get back for a second trip soon!!! LOVE THIS PLACE!

Stayed in the back unit late May 2015. Unit was very clean and had everything you would ever need. The location is great right on the beach and very easy walk to Times Square. Dave the owner is very friendly and is there to help you with anything you need. My wife and I are looking at dates for our next get away at the Holliday House.

Just returned home from the Holliday Beach House. From the moment we arrived, this place felt like home because of Dave (the owner). It's really great to have the owner on site with so much knowledge about the area. In addition, the location cannot be beat. Being right on the beach, walking distance to stores and restaurants, and quiet accommodations is what this house offers. Highly recommend Nervous Nellies, trip to Key West, Sanibel Island, and Lovers Key State Park. We feel like we stumbled onto a little golden gem with this house --- and the memories and friendship with Dave are priceless.

We enjoy being on the beach and walking distance to the strip and the store. Having the beach right out your back door was wonderful. Dave and Monica, Thank you for a wonderful, relaxing vacation. We will be back:)

This is a beautiful location on the Gulf. The house is nice and very clean. The location is almost perfect. It's far enough away from square that the beach is not crowded, but close enough that it's not too long of a walk. The owners are very friendly and it was a pleasure to work with them.
