We've stayed twice at Ohana Beachside now, once in the Studio room and once in the two-bedroom unit. Both were beautifully decorated, clean, and new. We preferred the two bedroom just because we had more room. It was so nice, we really didn't want to leave and go to the beach! Beds are super comfortable in both units. This unit is across the street from the beach so very close. Lots of good restaurants in walking distance. Danny and his wife are around frequently and very friendly and welcoming. The deck on top is a great pint for sunsets or a lunch break. The studio unit is small, still nicely done, but it was a bit cramped for a week's stay. We hope to stay in other properties of theirs as well.
Truly amazing place to stay. Bright and Beautiful Colors!
Just a few steps to the white sandy beach.
Owners were very quick to respond with any questions I had and I would love to visit again.
Husband, our two young boys (2 and 4), the kids' cousin (10 yr old) and myself had a fantastic stay. Stayed in this rental unit from Aug 27 to Sept 3, 2014. Pictures of the unit are exactly what it is inside. It's a beautiful apartment, clean, with comfortable beds and sheets, new-ish towels, and a well-equipped kitchen. There is a code lock to enter the unit, therefore great to check-in or check-out at anytime. Plus, there is no need to worry about swimming with a key in your pocket or losing a key at the beach. The owners provide nice beach towels, a beach umbrella and camping chairs. Also provided are beach toys and 2 body boards, so it was prefect for the kids! The beach is very close, a 2-min walk, just need to cross Gulf Dr. and you are there (yet the apartment is not overlooking Gulf Dr.)! The beach is excellent for kids, super warm in Aug-Sept and calm. Back at the rental unit, there are an outdoor shower and a faucet to wash/rinse the sandy and salty bodies and feet. Also, the car is parked in a carport so you won't get soaked wet when it pours. Rental unit is located upstairs. Finally, the owners are very friendly and courteous, ready to help. They responded to our needs quickly, like needing new towels or toilet paper.
There are two small improvements that could be made: (1) the bathroom sink stopper is annoying to use because it is very hard to unlock from the "stopping" position, and (2) there could be a recycle bin for paper/cardboard/alu/glass/plastics inside the apartment unit.
We had a fantastic stay and we will definitely rent again from them.

We stayed at this property in July of 2014 and it was great. Many times you see pictures of rental properties on-line and think everything looks great but when you arrive the pictures are outdated and so is the property. That is not the case here. All pictures are accurate and the rental property is newly renovated. All appliances were in great working condition and there were beach towels provided.
The communication with the owners was great and there were directions on check-in and check-out provided. Everything worked as planned.
I have no complaints about this rental unit and would definitely stay there again.
Exactly as advertised. Good for a couple or small family. We were within a 2 minute walk to the beach and the neighborhood was quiet at night. The biggest drawback was the lack of a washer and dryer so be prepared to pack heavy including towels.
We will return to Anna Maria island at some point in our lives and this cottage will be on our list of potential rentals.
We loved the Ohana Hale South. It sits on a quiet street just across from bradenton beach access. The house is fully furnished with everything we needed. We will be back!
My husband and I brought a couple of our grandkids, and daughter in law for a short vacation. Ohana Hale South (West Suite) fit the bill perfectly. The kitchen had everything you could possibly need to cook a good meal. Nicely appointed throughout. Only negative was construction going on at the next building, but I guess that's progress and couldn't be helped. The only suggestion I have would be to put some kind of non slip stickers or mat on the bottom of the bathtub as it got very slippery and I fell, but luckily caught myself and wasn't hurt. Upon arriving the code that was given to me hadn't been programmed yet, therefore I couldn't get in. Had to call 3 phone numbers to get some to give me a temporary code to get in. Overall it was a very nice stay and I would recommend.
