Relaxing family spot with great access to beach
We absolutely loved Good Times. It was perfect for our family, and we had easy walks to all the beach access points. The pool is particularly well protected, a nice safety feature for families with young kids. The house is comfortable, relaxed, and a cool relief after a sunny beach trip. We look forward to another trip.
Beautiful place, well-managed
beautiful home and attentive hosts
we will come again.
Our Good Times Vacation
We stayed at the property for 5 weeks. The location on the North end of the Anna maria was great, close to the beach, great sunsets. The house was roomy well appointed, lots of room when our grand children visited. The kids enjoyed the pool even though it was small. Overall I would recommend Good Times.
Thank you for taking the time to review Good Times, I’m glad you enjoyed your 5 week stay at our home! Good Times is only about 400 feet from Bean Point Beach which tends to be less crowded than other parts of the Island and has some amazing sunsets! The cocktail pool was recently installed at Good Times and is the largest allowed on the property due to local restrictions. It is still a welcome addition and a great way to cool off and relax a bit. Please reach out to us when planning your return trip to Anna Maria.
If you think the pics make this house look nice, wait until you see it in person! I loved the fact that the master bedroom was on one end and the other 2 bedrooms and bath were on the opposite end. It just made it even more "spacious". The pool is small but refreshing and the spa is big and inviting after a long day at the beach. Short walk to the Rod & Reel and a 15 minute walk to Pine Street. If you want to enjoy the quieter side of Anna Maria Island, this is a great choice.
Thank you for reviewing Good Times and I’m glad you had such an awesome vacation at our home! Good Times has plenty of room for the family to gather in the living area with the master bedroom located to allow a little privacy. The pool and spa were recent additions and the largest the city code would allow on our property but a welcome addition nonetheless. You really can’t beat our location being so close to the beach and yet just a short stroll to Rod and Reel Pier and all the great shopping and restaurants on Pine Ave. We would love to have you come back and stay at Good Times again!
We had a wonderful time in this house. We have 2 kids (a 9 month old, and a 2.5 year old). This was perfect because there are no stairs, and we didn't want a big pool that would be a hazard also. Just 5 minutes or less to walk to the beach. The house was clean and comfortable, and exactly as the pictures. We would definitely consider staying here again.
Thank you for your review on Good Times, we’re so glad that you had a wonderful time vacationing in our home! The cocktail pool is an addition we recently made and a great place to cool off and relax. The spa is nice and soothing on that occasional chilly evening. Good Times has an open layout with plenty of room for the whole family to gather. We would love to hear back from you when planning your next family getaway!
Good Times is the place to be
What a great house--roomy and open, lots of drawers and cabinets, separation between master and other bedrooms. Go out front door, walk short block to Gulf access. Turn right on the beach and follow Bean Point along the channel to the Bay. When you come to the walker's bridge, follow it to the street, which brings you back to the corner the house is on. Great photo spots--and keep your eyes sharp for a ghost or a hermit crab.
When I arrived, the kitchen was the best-equipped I've seen in the many years I've been coming the AMI. Examples? 2 complete sets of cookware (one non-stick), a slow cooker, an electric citrus juicer (a tall glass of fresh oj for breakfast!), both a toaster and a toaster oven. The microwave was also a convection oven, so it'd be hard to not cook up a storm--if you're so inclined. Oversights mentioned in previous review definitely taken care of.
Which brings me to the best thing about Good Times. The rental management staff is rapid-action in dealing with anything that arises--Ellie, Suzanne, and Bob are BOI (best on island). Too bad renter who needed more kitchen stuff didn't just tell Ellie and her crew. Would have been fixed right away.
My family and other guests would vote the best feature as the spa. You control the water getting nice and toasty. While you're in there, listen for a raucous clatter in the sky--watch the wild green conyers flying overhead.
Definitely have the creme brûlée French toast at Ginny and Jane E's, the shrimp and grits at Sign of the Mermaid, fried green tomatoes and carnitas tacos (or anything really) at Waterfront restaurant. Stop at Donut shop and watch them make your donut. Those are all close.
Other things to do? Go on an ecotour with Cap'n Kim (see phone number on local merchants map), kayak among the mangroves, take a trip down the strip of islands to Mote Marine or St Armand's Circle. Shelling is usually good at the park on the south end of Lido Key.
If you like to relax, enjoy nature, and be well taken care of, you can't go wrong at Good Times.
Thank you for your great review on Good Times, we’re so glad that you had such a great vacation at our home! We are lucky to have Ellie, Bob and Suzanne, they do a great job of looking after our guests and home alike. It is our goal to provide all the conveniences of home to our guests and they do a nice job of responding to their recommendations. It sounds like you took full advantage of everything that our home and the island have to offer, and we really appreciate all the great tips you shared for our future guests! We can’t wait to have you back in the future!
