Aloha and welcome to our Island Home.
“Ohana” is Hawaiian for family and that is who you are when you stay with us. Our retreat is nestled in Anna Maria Island, Florida. Ohana Hale Beachside is 150 feet to the white sand beaches and turquoise water.
Our "Hale" is a Studio Villa with a king size bed and a full bathroom. Your Villa includes a small refrigerator, microwave, toaster and coffee maker to make small meals. There is also a 32" flat screen TV, cable, free wireless internet and a blue-ray player. We supply beach chairs, umbrella and beach towels so all you need to pack is your swim wear.
We have a third floor deck for all guest to enjoy that offers a panoramic view of the beach and Gulf of Mexico to catch those spectacular sunsets.
Interaction with Guests
We are on the island daily and we can give you any tips or recommendations for eateries or activities or quiet places to relax. Because we are the owners and not a agency, we treat you like "Ohana".
Anna Maria Island was just ranked fourth in the Top Islands in the U.S. by the first annual TripAdvisor’s Travelers' Choice Islands Awards.
It is also a bit of old Florida. It doesn't offer mega resorts or towering condos with crowded beaches, it does offer quiet white sandy beaches and a great family atmosphere. Come see why so many others are finding out that you don’t have to compromise on a great beach vacation.
For those who belong to the Loyal Order of Moose, the local Moose lodge is one block away on the beach.
Don't care to drive on the Island after your arrive? No worries as we have a FREE Island trolley service that runs up and down the length of Anna Maria Island. We are also a brief walk to the historic Bridge Street where there are shops, great eateries and live music. We have limited parking available.
Other Things to Note
Definitely come here for the sunsets, but plan to stay for the sunrises, too. Anna Maria Island—a wisp of a seven-mile island along Florida's West Coast—is a place that revels in the end of day. As the sun slips spectacularly past the horizon, bongs clang, music plays, cameras click, and viewers try to guess the exact time of daylight's finale. Yes, it's a nightly celebration not to be missed, but come morning, you still will find plenty to do until the evening ritual starts again.
Sorry, we do not allow pets. There is no smoking allowed indoors. Because Anna Maria Island is a quiet beach community, we respectfully ask that you treat it as such.
We loved our stay at Ohana Hale! We found the room to be clean and exactly as described. The bedroom is furnished with a small table/chairs, dresser and nightstands and a storage unit for kitchen items (dishes, coffee maker, toaster, etc). The bathroom was quite large with a large walk-in shower. In addition, there was a refrigerator in the bathroom (slightly larger than the typical dorm-size refrigerator) that was sufficient for our needs. The upper deck is shared and is furnished with a table, outdoor sofa/chair and coffee table and was a great place to catch the sun setting over the water. The location was great as well...only ~100 ft off of Gulf Drive and right down the street from the free Anna Maria trolley. Overall, this is a great place for two people who plan on enjoying the outdoors while at the beach.
The arrangement were very well done, easy. Great location. Upstairs tenants were loud walking around in the early am. Would have preferred a firmer bed. Enjoyed the outside area. Might want to be upstairs next time!
We LOVED Ohana Hale! We will be checking their availability first next time we come down. Great proximity to the beach, and walking distance to several small shops, restaurants, bars, and coffeeshops. The studio we stayed in (unit C) is great for a couple who just need a bedroom for the night and spend their days out and about. We were still able to entertain two friends in the area on the deck upstairs for a few. We also saw Danny working outside nearly every day, and he's very attentive to detail.
We're absolutely coming back!
I highly recommend Danny and Brenda Chin as hosts, and their really nice homes. They responded quickly and informatively to our reservation request. We started out in the beachside studio. When we decided we would like more room, Danny and Brenda were very helpful and immediately offered us the option of their two bedroom home. They were totally accommodating and helpful throughout our stay. Both homes were very clean and comfortable, as described. The two bedroom is spacious, with a small front and back deck, good size bedrooms and very nice kitchen. Both residences were very easy walking distance to the beautiful beach. We enjoyed our stay immensely, and will definitely return to Danny and Brenda's residences. Holmes Beach and Maria Anna Beach have beautiful clear water and soft white sand. There are delicious dining options and enjoyable shops. A great place to relax and enjoy!
The studio at Ohana Hale was exactly as described: clean, stylish, well-appointed and comfortable. The king-sized bed was very cushy, and the travertine-tiled bathroom was beautiful and totally unexpected in such a reasonably priced accommodation. Danny and Brenda were very friendly, and recommended local attractions and activities based on our preferences. Absolutely five stars.
Danny and Brenda's hospitality started from our first email and phone conversations, from which we became interested in meeting them as well as staying at their Beachside Studio. It was as described and we were very well satisfied. And it was located only about a mile down the same street from where my son was married on Nov 1. We look forward to returning there and staying again at Ohala Hale .
My husband and I had a wonderful stay at the ohana one bedroom beach cottage. The apartment had everything we needed including beach chairs. We loved taking the trolley to the shops at the pier too. This was our first trip to bradenton beach... We will surely be back! We are going to do a family trip and rent from Danny and Brenda again.

A devoted couple of two children . We love being in the hospitality field. One of the greatest joys is when we hear from our guest how much they enjoyed their stay with us. We strive to insure your stay is everything you hope for and if there is anything we can do to make it perfect for you we will do our best to help.
Brenda and I love to travel with cruising being our favorite way to visit places. We are also foodies that enjoy exploring new cuisines especially food trucks. We enjoy ballroom dancing especially latin style and enjoy attending ballet performances.
Anna Maria Island is not only the location of our Island Retreat, but it is also a favorite place for us to relax and get away from the weeks stresses.
