Nedra Townley purchased this House in 2010
Why Nedra Townley chose Anna Maria
We live in Ocala Florida and have spent the past 9 years renting, we love Anna Maria Island and are so happy to own a piece of paradise! We hope you enjoy our beach house as much as we do.
What makes this House unique
You are so close to everything, but you have a unique advantage to most homes on Anna Maria because of the secluded back yard. You feel miles away but yet so close. I feel as if I am at my own private Hilton and I hope you feel the same.

Tipsy Turtle Part 2
This was our second visit to this gorgeous piece of property. We absolutely fell in love on our first trip and immediately rebooked with Nedra as soon as we returned from our visit. Upon arrival we noticed that the property has had significant upgrades and has undergone remodeling in the kitchen and outside pool areas, which were were all greatly appreciated. Here we thought that the Tipsy Turtle couldn’t get any better, well it has with these new additions. The newly remodled kitchen offers its guests with first class appliances and an abundance cutlery and cookware. The outside pool area is like its own private tropical paradise. One can really relax listening to the sound of the pool waterfall or simply soaking in the hot tub. What really makes this property shine is the small attention to detail. As a guest you have access to beach chairs, umbrellas, 4 adult bikes, pool rafts and loungers, you literally just need to show up and enjoy. The location of the property also adds as an extra bonus as well. It’s located on a quiet dead end street yet just a 5 min walk to the beautiful beaches of AMI. Thanks again Nedra for providing us the opportunity to enjoy your wonderful property.
Gorgeous property and location!
This is our second year staying at the Tipsy Turtle and we love it! This past year the kitchen was completely and beautifully remodeled as well as new flooring throughout. The pool and patio were also redone. We really love the privacy of the backyard including the heated pool and hot tub. We used the new beach cart to walk 5 minutes to the golf of Mexico carrying chairs, cooler, umbrellas etc. The location on the northern end of the island is a convenient location to get to Pine Street, go for walk or for a bike ride which are included at the property. We used the BBQ 3-4 times a week. The beds, bedding and towels are all first class and little things like shampoo, conditioner and seasonings are included. We are looking forward to returning in 2019!
If you are seeking peace and tranquility on your next visit to AMI, look no further. The Tipsy Turtle offers its guests the best of what AMI has to offer. Located at the north end of Anna Maria Proper, you will enjoy great dinning experiences, wonderful sightseeing opportunities, and lavish in the flour white sands of the Gulf, which are all just a short walk away. The accommodations are wonderful, clean and most welcoming. You literally need your swimsuit and sunscreen, Nedra will provide the rest. We spent our mornings on the back deck sipping coffee and enjoying the lush tropical gardens of the backyard, which feels like its own private resort. Afternoons included time spent on the beach using the umbrellas, beach toys and lounging on the beach chairs which are all provided. During the early evenings we took short walks and enjoyed the sunsets at the Sandbar restaurant and appreciated cocktails at the City Pier Restaurant. On our walk home from the City Pier we found ourselves stopping at Two Scoops for Ice cream (Salted Caramel Ice cream YUM). While on your stay don't miss the cinnamon rolls at Ginny's & Jane E's (incredible). The Tipsy Turtle is a Fantastic vacation destination and its evident that Nedra takes great pride in providing a first class experience for her quests. This is why we have already rebooked and can't wait to visit again :-)
We spent a fun pre-Easter week in this friendly island home. The location on the canal made exploring the waters by kayak a highlight. Our grandchildren loved seeing the manatees up close. Located on a dead end street, 3 blocks from the beach, the cheery home has every amenity. The lush tropical backyard has a heated pool, outdoor shower, and even a quaint "outhouse." Don't miss the donut shop or Ginny & Jane's, both easy walks. And The Waterfront, a favorite, has carry out. We will definitely be Back!
Fell in love on our first try
We stayed in this house in October 2016 and could not have asked for anything more. It was our first visit to Anna Maria and we found the perfect spot on our first try. The owner was very responsive to questions. I text her several times during our stay and she responded quickly each time.
The beds were comfortable and there didn't seem to be anything the owner did not think of providing. The kitchen and bathrooms are stocked and pool and beach supplies are provided. My family loved the bikes and went on many bike rides. There are also two sets of washers and dryers so it was nice to not have to wait for one to be available.
The backyard was amazing we spent most of our time back there in the pool and hot tub, laying in the hammock or fishing from the dock. We loved just sitting on the back porch off the kitchen just looking at the backyard. It really made you feel like you were in paradise.
We look forward to returning to Anna Maria every year and hopefully be able to stay in this same house or in one of the owners other properties. It is comforting to know the owner will respond to any issues or questions you may have.
Awesome Property and wonderful location!
We (4 adults) had a great time at the Tipsy Turtle as we were there from 2/18 - 3/20/17. We especially loved the backyard seclusion and landscaping including the pool and hot tub which we used everyday. We also used the provided bikes (4) and beach cart most everyday. We packed the beach cart every afternoon with the supplied beach chairs, umbrellas, towels and cooler. The location was perfect; near restaurants, bars and the Gulf of Mexico and is located in the best part of the Island. The nearby beaches exceeded our expectations. The house has everything you need for cooking, comfort and we also grilled 4-5 days a week. There are also two local churches within walking distance. The owners are easy to work with and we were so happy with our stay we booked it again for the same time next year!
