About the property

Relax in this brand new luxury home just a block from the beautiful beaches of Anna Maria Island. The Blue Sky Beach House is one side of a newly constructed private duplex completed in April 2015. Decorated in a coastal style, this house has 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, 6 flat screen TV's, private heated pool and spa, stainless steel appliances, grill, rooftop deck, 10 foot ceilings and top of the line amenities. Kids will enjoy the bunk room made just for them...plenty of games & puzzles and an easy one minute walk to the beach. The open floor plan allows for everyone to be together whether you're in the kitchen, living room or dining area and the pool is completely private (both sides have their own pool)!

Perfectly located just a block from the beach and a short stroll to the shops and restaurants, Blue Sky Beach House is ideal for a larger group or multiple families traveling together. It has everything you'll need for a comfortable, relaxing, stress-free vacation. Even an outdoor shower to wash away the sand after a trip to the beach. You won't want to leave!

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

Great Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Blue Sky House the second week of November. It was a great house and just as beautiful as the pictures. It is literally a one minute walk to the beach. We had 11 total people in the house (6 adults, 5 kids) and had plenty of room for everybody to enjoy. Missy was great to deal with and attentive throughout. We look forward to staying here again!

Amazing, family friendly escape!

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for families getting away to the beach together. From high chair and pack n play to beach/pool toys - it is set up for success! Only a short walk down the street to the beach and only a few steps out the sliding door to the pool allow for whatever kind of water fun you could want. We enjoyed hanging out around the house and exploring the island on our stay. I highly recommend this house to anyone looking to have a relaxing week at the beach.

*As a side note, we did move the furniture in the family room to have more space inside, but that was easily achieved!

5 stars...should be 10!!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in August for an 8 day stay in Blue Sky & was beyond excited!! I've been in contact with the owner, Missy, since I first booked & am astounded with her kindness & attention throughout our whole experience! Unfortunately, we were hit by our first hurricane, Hermine (which stole 3 days of our sunshine) whilst we stayed on Anna-Maria island but Missy made us all feel calm & rid us of nerves...back & forth with emails with great advice & care for us!! We felt very safe in the villa throughout the storm and were not at all bored waiting it out!

Even with the storm we had an absolutely FABULOUS time staying here, it is everything you want in a villa...spacious, bright, modern & literally 30 seconds from the beautiful sands of Anna-Maria island. The heated pool & outside space was big & open and full of sunshine all day, it was spacious enough for the 8 adults & 3 kiddies in our party...and the villa was full of games & beachside equipment which we put to great use!! The beds were comfortable & the rooms decorated lovely, also plenty of space in the bathrooms especially the master!!

I can even say that the pool gent that we contacted attended within a couple of hours & was just as friendly & kind as Missy, the amenities on the island are not far from the villa and you are situated in a perfect location on the island itself.

I don't usually write reviews & this will only echo those that have already reviewed this property but I felt I needed to also share my amazing holiday experience in the rental!! I am already looking to rebook Blue sky for next year, my whole party share my enthusiasm...such a great villa to stay in, 5 stars is definitely not enough to rate this beautiful home!! I can guarantee you will have the best time staying here and will be as sad as I was to say goodbye!!

Thank you Missy for a great great stay in your home! And potential renters this is a diamond villa do not hesitate to book!!

Most memorable family vacation !

  • 5 of 5

I could never have imagined a more perfect location and house to stay at for a wonderful vacation. We had 6 adults and 4 children made up of family and friends. The house is very spacious and close to the beach. The house is even more remarkable in person then pictured. Missy has thought of everything imaginable. It's beautifully decorated and fully equipped with everything from the kitchen which had plastic dishes, ceramic dishes, food containers, etc., and many beach umbrellas, a beach type tent, coolers, beach chairs, and things for the children to use at the beach. The pool/deck area is absolutely stunning. The pool company came to the house twice to check the levels and clean it. Missy responded promptly to any questions or issues we had. Everyone was sad to leave but we are looking forward to returning to AMI and would definitely rent this property again. Thank you Missy for allowing us to rent your home which made memories that we will never forget!

Great trip to Anna Maria Island

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to Anna Maria so deciding on location and house was just kind of a shot in the dark. But it was a good shot in the dark! We vacationed with 8 kids total and 4 adults and we had plenty of space! The house was very clean and decorated perfectly for the beach. the backyard was nice and the pool was very nice. It rained the first three days we were there and was a little chilly, so we wanted to use the hot tub one night. We had an issue with the hot tub making some crazy noise and we notified Missy and the pool guy was there the next day!! Very impressed!

The only issue we had was the people in the unit attached had lots of very loud kids that would bang on the wall into the evening. But that was communicated with Missy after day one and it did improve.

Also, if you are like us and flying in with no beach gear, the garage has a lot of great chairs, sand toys, buggies, we left a boogie board, volleyball. It was so great to have all that there!

We hope to return to Anna Maria Island next year!
