Testimonials

Clients share their Goose & Gander experience

We have been so pleased with the service from Goose & Gander! Our guests have written such positive reviews regarding the service they have received from our property management company. They are so reasonable and easy to work with. We have been loyal partners for years now and highly recommend them!

Rob and Kathy Surfside Rental

As a first-time vacation rental home owner in Anna Maria, I was unsure what to expect. Dan and his vibrant wife, Lori (or “Goose” as she is known to those of us blessed to know them well) have worked hard every day for years to ensure my homes are protected, my business is well-managed, and my guests are so delighted with the attention and high levels of service received that they gleefully produce “five star” reviews without hesitation. Keeping guests happy and homes in excellent condition are two of the critical elements of running a successful vacation rental home business in Anna Maria. As an owner who has enjoyed success beyond expectations for the past several years, I can happily testify that anyone seeking to operate a truly enjoyable, efficient, and profitable vacation rental home in this market would be wise to work with my friends at Goose & Gander, LLC.

Mrs. Jeffrie van Loveren Dragonfly AMI, LLC.

Goose and Gander have been overseeing our home from the day we had our first guest, and we would not have it any other way! We actually reside in a different state, so having Goose and Gander just around the block, their expertise, accessibility, and care when we are not there ourselves is an absolute godsend. From booking, to check-out, they cover all the details in a way that I would have thought only we could for our guests and home. Having direct contact with guests and what they want/need/request, give them the advantage of knowing how to be thorough and detail oriented from a guest's perspective. As Goose knows this is our first time owning a vacation home, she has suggested many things to us to improve our guests experience, and we have adopted them all. Want your vacation home cared for and your business to thrive? Then get Goose and Gander!!

Don and Sally Kinsey

Goose & Gander have given nothing less than exceptional service. We are a part of their Property Only Service and nothing gives us more peace of mind than knowing that they treat our home as their own. With living out of state we obviously can not be there to take care of all the things that come up. Dan and Goose are not only reliable they go above the call of duty to ensure that our home is always taken care of and completely ready for when we visit. Owning a second home is stressful, especially when you live in another state, but Goose & Gander have made the entire experience simple and stress-free!

Britney Hilliard

We have had the honor of working with Goose & Gander since November of 2017. It has been a blessing. We are so extremely happy to have them as a part of our team. When we purchased Bay Breeze, Dan & Goose jumped in and worked with us from the day to day getting it ready to go and now they have complete management of the resort. As a company, Bay Breeze, the three owners could not give enough praise to the ability, honesty, and true kindness of these two. We feel that they are a part of our team and family. Bay Breeze Getaways completely support and feel blessed that they chose to be a part of our team. Congratulations to Dan & Goose and may your days be blessed with shamrocks and rainbows each day. Remember to KEEP YOUR TOES IN THE SAND!

Dining on Anna Maria Island is fun and eclectic.  All restaurants are coastal casual – you will see diners in swimsuit coverups or cool chic attire.  Dressing down is the way of the island!  Whether it is:  grabbing a deli breakfast or lunch sandwich at the AM General Store, sit down dining at the Waterfront, snacking at the “No Shower Happy Hour” at the bar at Slim’s, dining with your toes in the sand at The Sandbar, watching the fishermen reel it in while dining on mangrove snapper at the Rod & Reel Pier, or picking up some freshly caught seafood of your own from Captain Anthony, Cortez Fish Market, or Star Fish Company, you will not go hungry while visiting AMI!  Our favorite? It is too hard to choose! We provided a list of hand picked places to dine. Select your favorites and let us know!
