Flip Flops On The Ground

Full Service

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.

Property Only

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 regarding your property needs.

A La Carte

Getting to know our island neighbors, we realized that there are many who live here who 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.

Testimonials

Clients share their Goose & Gander experience

Prior to purchasing our first vacation rental home on Anna Maria Island, we looked at many different properties with our realtor. On our first visit to our eventual new home, we immediately noticed the personal touch and attention to detail paid by the property management team. Our comment on that first visit was, “Whoever is managing this property is who we want to manage whichever property we ultimately purchase.” The house and property both looked impeccable and we were so impressed!

After beginning our relationship under normal circumstances, 2020 brought us a pandemic and a moratorium on short-term rentals. We were all subjected to COVID-19 and the challenges it presented to property owners, management teams and potential guests. From the start, Goose and Dan were actively reviewing both state and local guidelines to be sure that we were adhering to the latest regulations and requirements. They were in constant contact with us, providing us with any and all relevant information we needed to ensure we were making the correct and best decisions for our guests.

Given the consistent positive feedback from guests regarding everything from being greeted shortly after arrival to being so prompt in responding to anything needing to be addressed during their stay, we firmly believe that hiring the right property management team is just as important as purchasing the right property. Goose & Gander is THAT property management team. Having them as our “flip flops on the ground” has paid dividends many times over. Not only are they incredibly professional, responsive and thorough in all that they do, they are just good people and we are so pleased to have them as an integral part of our team.

Greg and Beth Morris Dragonfly, Anna Maria

I bought my home on North Shore Drive two years ago but due a long term out of town family caretaking situation not much got done. I posted on Next Door Anna Maria last Spring looking for someone local to help me keep the horribly ragged, half dead yard weeds and overgrowth from overtaking the house. Someone I didn’t even know sent me Dan and Goose’s number and I called. Dan came by and had a look. I later learned Dan and Goose are exactly the good neighbors they appeared to be. My yard now has lots of green and constantly blooming flowers requiring minor maintenance and very little front end expenditure. He puts in plants, connects temporary irrigation on timers then moves it on to the next spot we want to tackle once a bed or area is established. Neighbors and friends wonder why my house always looks beautiful yet I never have truck loads of high priced loud leaf blowing yard guys in big trucks and trailers blocking the road here. It’s because Goose and Gander is old school. They are very high on customer service and consideration and very low on noise and non performance. They show up happy, get ‘er done and leave you smiling at the price and the result. They are always available to help and that brings me peace of mind. I don’t even have a rental - they just manage me and it’s so great!

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, Former Owner 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!
