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 -

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.

Lovely loft just off center of town

  • 5 of 5

Yuletide is deceptively spacious and provided everything we needed for our 6 day stay. Sean and family have created a unique and comfortable gem. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need plus a washer and dryer. There's a patio, BBQ, bikes and fishing rods... what more could you want? The river is 2 blocks one way and a bay front park (with boat ramps) is a couple blocks south. Take your pick of beaches. This is our fourth visit to Apalachicola, previously we stayed in a hotel. Definitely enjoyed Yuletide and hope to stay here again.

What a gem!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful loft apartment right in the middle of it all! Warm and cozy with just the right balance of ambiance! Perfect location for walking this great little town. Private entrance off the street leads you in through a secluded garden patio. Open the sliding glass doors to the apartment and walk into a warm, cozy, open living space. The loft bedroom is up the stairs and separate from the living area. All the amenities you need in the kitchen if you want to prepare meals. Small but well designed bathroom with a bath/shower combination and great lighting over the sink area. All the shops, restaurants, art shops and local historical spots are within easy walking distance right out your front gate. Also has private parking off the street. We were only here for three days, but will be back again to recharge our batteries after the holidays!

great location downtown Apalachicola

  • 5 of 5

The location is walking distance to everything downtown Apalachicola and a short drive to St George Island. The unit was Very Clean and well maintained. The furniture was nice, the bed in the loft was comfortable and the downstairs bathroom had hairdryer, soap and shampoo. The kitchen as in most lofts was small but had everything you needed for your stay. A gas station next door made it nice to pick up a bag of ice for the cooler when making the drive over to St George Island. We were able to park right at the unit which made it easy to load and unload your stuff for the week. We enjoyed our visit to the area and would stay at this lovely loft when returning to the area in the future.
