About Missy Prout

Our extended family of 12 adults and 9 kids enjoyed a week-long reunion on this lovely Island in the summer of 2011. That is when we fell in love with Anna Maria Island and Holmes Beach. Our family has been visiting this area on a regular basis ever since. Little did we know that we would one day decide to put down some roots here. We've been creating such fantastic memories over the years...walking the beaches, boating in the Gulf, kayaking in the Bay, playing in the pool, day trips to Busch Gardens, Lego land and Disney, and dining at the many great restaurants on this seven mile stretch. The harsh Wisconsin winters drove us to find a place here that our family (three boys now!) could enjoy in the years to come. That place is the Blue Sky Beach House. Anna Maria Island is one of a kind & we hope your time here gives you the same joy it's given us!

Missy Prout purchased this house in 2015

Location! Location! Location! We love this little part of Anna Maria Island..and everything about this home is designed to make for a comfortable and relaxing beach vacation for you and your family.

Notes:
POOL: We do offer pool heat as needed as a courtesy to our guests at no additional charge. Our pool and pool equipment are closely monitored for your safety, we kindly ask that the controls not be tampered with. Due to the island's strict 10pm noise ordinance, the pool heaters will not run overnight. Please remember, outdoor spas are not hot tubs. Generally speaking, our winter months are considered from November through April. During these months we do our best to ensure that the pools are heated to a temperature of 82 degrees. However, please be aware that even in Central Florida we do occasionally get cold spells that can send the temperatures into the 30's for a few nights in a row. This will cause the pool water temp to draw down to in the 70's and a pool pump will shut down if the outside temp gets too cold. The pump will then kick back on in the morning and begin re-heating of the pool back to 82, which may take a day or two. We'll do everything we can to get it warm!

Fifty Memories Made at the Blue House

  • 5 of 5

We booked the Blue House to take our family for a week to AMI for an early 50th anniversary trip.

The house is so pretty inside and is complete with every kitchen appliance, urensil, etc. you could want.

Each bedroom is beautiful, as well as the baths.

The swimming pool was the hit of the week with our grandkids. Forget the beach and ocean, they loved the pool!!

There was beach accessories, although the carts are really rickety.

I called Missy about a couple of problems created by tenants before us and she had them fixed by the next morning.

I would definitely recommend this rental to friends and family!!!

Fantastic house, easy close walk to the beach! Great location!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great trip!! The house is beautiful, clean, well equipped with towels (beach and bath), kitchen supplies, grill, and beach equipment (chairs, umbrellas, toys). A straight shot / very short walk to the beach with carts and a wagon to easily get everything there and back. Pool and hot tub were perfect!! We also rented the adjoining duplex for our group of 21 - plenty of space for all of us to eat dinners together and spread out during the rainy days. No issues all week - I'd highly recommend!!! Perfect location - in the middle of the island with an easy drive to the grocery store, restaurants, gift shops.

If I had to come up with a negative - there are no rain gutters so when it pours (which we had 4-5 days of) there's a deluge of water that comes down over the front porch, but if your going out in it your getting wet regardless so not a real big deal.

House is also stocked with some games, books, cards, wifi (Netflix), which definitely helped on the really bad weather days keep our kids busy (ages 9-20). We never had any issues with enough hot water for showers or laundry which we expected having a full house.

Great trip!! Great house!!! Thx so much Missy!!! We hope to come back someday!!!

Any trip will have its downfalls, but the response of the owners to our minor concerns is what made this place worth every dollar. Great time with family

Beautiful Place!

  • 5 of 5

This is an awesome place to stay, clean, close to everything. 1 minute walk to the beach. Missy was great to work with. always replied to my emails and text in a timely matter. The beach is beautiful!!! We had 8 adults and it accommodated us great. There were even a couple of nights we had 10 adults as my son and his girlfriend who live in Tampa came and stayed for a few days. Love it!!! will definitely come again and stay here. Again the owners were awesome to work with. Thank you Missy!

Beautiful Home & Wonderful Owners

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful stay on AMI with 5 teenaged boys. Everything was perfect (including the weather). Missy was quick to respond when the dishwasher was leaking by sending a handyman out immediately to repair. The house is beautiful, as well as the grounds. The rooftop balcony was a plus, as well! If we ever come back with a large group again, we will definitely stay here again!

Nice home, great location for the beach and island amenities.

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this lovely home. It is in a very good location as it is very close to the beach and other island amenities. The home has a very well stocked kitchen and the pool is outstanding for family gatherings and deck picnics. The owner is outstanding to work with as she is interested in you having a wonderful vacation.
