Overview

About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Welcome to YuleTide, a unique loft experience in the heart of historic downtown Apalachicola, FL. Apalachicola is a quaint southern town with a strong maritime culture, an eclectic group of locally owned shops and galleries, and award winning restaurants featured in Wine Spectator, Coastal Living, and Southern Living. All are within a block or two of YuleTide. You may enjoy an evening dining in and the complete kitchen, outdoor grill, and private courtyard make it comfortable and easy. Bicycles are provided so you may peddle past the gorgeous Victorian homes and Lafayette Park in the historic southern neighborhood. Or spend a day exploring the miles of pristine beaches at nearby St George Island, a short 15 minute drive across the spectacular Apalachicola Bay. There is an endless supply of bays and waterways, excellent fishing, and acres of National and State forests to explore. This is home to some of the finest oysters and seafood in the country and YuleTide is privately tucked away in the heart of it all!

About Sean Yule

My husband and I visited Apalachicola in June of 2013 and stayed at the loft; we have been searching for the quintessential Southern town – unspoiled by high-rise condos and chains – we found it in Apalach. We loved Apalach and the loft so much, we leapt at the chance to become the new owners and plan to continue to share the loft with visitors when we are not there.

The former owner is an artist and business woman who expertly renovated the space into the lovely loft you see pictured on the web site. With its exposed brick inside, expansive Cypress woodwork and airy high ceilings, the loft is a welcoming haven for visitors. It has the charm of downtown Apalach right outside its door, but also has privacy with an entry through a charming gated courtyard. Many restaurants and shops in the community have been featured in Southern Living, Coastal Living, and Wine Spectator. But what really sold us is the charm of the local residents. Nice people and genuinely kind with visitors.

Apalach is a walk-around-town with a collection of interesting and quaint shops. We’d be glad to share our favorites when you contact us. Our son will be helping to manage the web site, bookings and correspondences, so feel free to reach out to him and we will be glad to provide more information about both Apalachicola and the loft.

Why Sean Yule chose North West Florida

We were fortunate to have the opportunity to buy the loft when it went on the market shortly after we stayed there for a long weekend; we hope you will enjoy the charm that both the loft and Apalach offer. Enjoy -

Loved the downtown location and the privacy of the unit.

  • 5 of 5

We loved being close to the "action", yet also isolated. Loved the loft and the space provided. Kitchen was well equipped. A great spot for a couple. The soaking tub was an absolute bonus!! We would definitely return to rent Yuletide.

We love Apalachicola and Yuletide loft was a Perfect place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

The loft was comfortable and enjoyable despite some difficulty with the door lock. Every thing was clean and well stocked. Location was fabulous. We worried about possible noise issues but not so. We walked everywhere. Loved the historic walking tour. The Dixie Theater had a show while we were here and we loved it. We hope to get back. Thanks for a great stay!

2nd stay! Great hideaway!

  • 5 of 5

Another great trip to Apalachicola! This loft is so charming, clean and comfortable! It's tucked away but in walking distance to everywhere you'd want to go in town. Had a question about locking the door and management was quick with an answer. Thank you again for sharing Yule Tide with us! We'll be back soon!

Great place and the bikes are a bonus!

  • 5 of 5

Great-looking and very comfy place all around. Apalach is such a sleepy town

at night, so the gas station next door was not a problem at all since it closes early.

We really enjoyed having access to the bikes as riding around town is very

pleasant and a great way to work off all the delicious seafood. We'll return to

YuleTide.

The property is very nice.

  • 4 of 5

The front door is hard to lock and needs to be replaced. The cable didn't work the entire time we were there.
