Let Goose & Gander Be Your
Flip Flops on the Ground
As island residents, our small portfolio of clients allows us to offer outstanding personal service caring for your property and/or guests.
We specialize in providing peace of mind to those who own a property on the island and use it as a vacation rental through VRBO, Airbnb, or similar yet are not here to look after their property and/or guests. This is our Full Service Level Option, which includes maintenance and guest care on a 24 hour basis, for starters. We offer flat rates based on a property visit and short consultation.
In addition, we offer property care services to islanders who visit their vacation home periodically and do not use it as a vacation rental. This is our Property Only Service Level Option which includes maintenance and home watch among a multitude of other features. We offer flat rates based on a property visit and short consultation.
A La Carte
Getting to know our island neighbors, we realized that many of them are seeking maintenance or handyman assistance at their home but do not require full time personnel. For these folks, we offer an A La Carte Service Level Option which allows our neighbors to customize their service level plan from a comprehensive list of our services. This service level is also appealing to those who rent their property to vacationers yet are not certain that they need the Full Service Level. Rates are listed herein however are flexible based on property size and special requests.
