A home that you will fall in love with!

  • 5 of 5

The kitty is pure luxury. It is a home you will fall in love with. The outdoor areas are fantastic. We would sit on the huge deck in the evenings and watch the sun set over the ocean. We surfed, paddle boarded, and even had Dolphins swimming with us. The home has two living areas. One upstairs and one downstairs. There is so much room in this home. You can all be together or have plenty of areas for alone time. We have been renting a home every year for 10 years. This home is the most amazing. Rent this home. You will fall in love with it, the people and the island. I can't wait to return. Claudia is a dream. She makes you feel like you are a friend visiting her home. Thank you Claudia and the Kitty for an amazing week of incredible memories with my daughter and my grandchildren.

My family and I stayed at the "Kitty" for my 50th birthday party. This place was spectacular- great views from the kitchen and living room area, wonderful, huge patio and it really is steps away from the beach. Magical!!! It's also in a great, central location- walking distance to restaurants and a short drive/bike ride to downtown. It's the best place I have ever stayed in- and I have traveled all over the world. This was the 1st time I ever used VBRO and the owner, Claudia was wonderful to deal with- made it so easy. I would highly recommend!!!!

Please note- I am a real person and volunteered to write this:)

My family and I have had the pleasure of spending many vacations on Amelia Island. We have stayed in several beach front houses, Amelia Island Plantation and Elizabeth Pointe Lodge. This home is by far the best accommodations we have had the pleasure to enjoy! The house itself is 5 Star with a great kitchen, a large open floor plan, 4 great bathrooms (especially the master suite pebble floor shower) with great linens throughout. But with the deck, I need a sixth star to properly rate this home! The deck is huge (think boardwalk) and so close to the ocean you feel like you are already on the beach. We spent many an hour sitting on the comfortable sectional sofa listing to the surf and star gazing from the four comfy chaise lounges at night, just magical!

The location on the island couldn't be better, right in the middle of everything. Only minutes from the great downtown restaurants and shops and even a short walk to a couple of really good restaurants and bike rentals and a few shops and less than 45 minutes to JAX airport.

The owners are super easy to deal with and very responsive as well as Barb the Realtor who checked us in and gave us several dining recommendations (Be sure to eat at Cucina South at least once!). I could go on and on about this spectacular beach front home, from the fantastic views from the living room, master suite and deck to the tasteful decorations, well stocked kitchen, great board games, it just has everything you could want.

Truly one of our best vacations EVER.

WOW this house is special

  • 5 of 5

The ultimate beach house with million dollar views of the ocean, a premier location! This expansive and comfortable home is sure to knock your socks off. You’ll feel right at home in the first floor everything is in your reach with a wet bar, refrigerator, TV, DVD player, kitchen table. 5 bathrooms and 4 bedrooms can comfortably accommodate up to 12 guests. Great basketball court for the kids.

The owners have furnished this beauty with all the modern touches. The cooks kitchen has recently been renovated and is fully stocked. It’s like your own private resort here! Great for groups of friends or couples traveling together. Downstairs is an additional large open family room, dining room with seats for 8 and a breakfast area wet bar. The deck is well equipped with furnishings for sunbathing, viewing a breakfast sunrise, or just lounging. You’ll love this beach home’s combination of indoor and outdoor space.

The location of this home could not be better – you’re right on the beach! Frolick in the surf and enjoy the warm temperatures. Explore the picturesque coastal town of Fernandina Beach . The streets are lined with unique shops, art galleries and restaurants featuring fresh local seafood fare. You’ll feel like a local instantly when you step onto the property of your new home away from home!

Your family may find it hard to leave paradise after a week here!

A perfect and relaxing retreat!

  • 5 of 5

LOVED this immaculate beach-home! We got in after dark and woke up to such a spectacular view of the ocean from our master suite! We lacked for nothing in this beautiful rental, and it has such an airy, clean, homey feel, we didn't want to leave! Loved cooking in the kitchen, because we could all be together with the family room right there and even the cook could enjoy the incredible view through the expansive windows. We used the deck a lot (loved the covered area & comfy furniture out there), and loved taking walks on the pristine beach, which was just steps away. The little town is so quaint, AND FRIENDLY! Can't wait to return someday!
