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 Apalachicola

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 -

This was the best place we’ve stayed in Appalachia. Close to everything.

  • 5 of 5

The location was wonderful and to top it off the inside of the rental was personal and has everything you would ever need. We’ve stayed in several places in Appalachia, this is the new go to place. See ya next time Yule Family. You have a beautiful property. Thanks for sharing.

Spacious and immaculate

  • 4 of 5

We spent three days in this immaculate and well-designed loft, and enjoyed them a great deal. Little touches like a ptivate courtyard, skylights, a very comfortable bed, and ample lighting and electrical outlets make it special. The raised front door threshold keeps it from being entirely wheelchair friendly, and, of course, the sleeping loft is not accessible to the chair user, but the downstairs sofa bed is quite adequate. Overall a charming and welcoming space.

Cute & Perfect

  • 5 of 5

My Husband and I were there for our 21st Anniversary. It was perfect. Great little loft. Super clean and bed was great and just super adorable place. We will be back. Absolutely loved it! Had so much fun hanging around town eating oysters and hanging out at the beaches for the weekend!

Very cute and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

Yule Tide is in a perfect location for walking all around downtown Apalachicola. It's also a great spot for day trips for things like kayaking. The apartment had absolutely everything you could need for a vacation even down the cork screw for wine and baggies for packing a picnic. We loved our stay and will likely return in the future.

Potentially a "Five Star" property, but...

  • 3 of 5

Yule Tide is beautifully designed and appointed and lacks nothing in furnishings and utilities.

Ideally located for downtown shopping, historic walking tours and for excursions to St George Island and Cape San Blas. Smells from neighboring restaurant and day-long noise from service station next door detract from patio experience. If you visit during the rainy season, beware! The roof sometimes leaks.
