Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday townhome in Apalachicola - YuleTide

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 -

Unexpected and Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We made a last minute reservation for my grown daughters birthday. We stayed two days and wanted to stay longer, however the loft was already rented. The loft is very convenient to every thing. It was a real pleasure and so much fun walking around town and exploring shops. We were so blessed to have the opportunity to stay there and the weather was perfect. The Loft is wonderful, truly lovely, well equipped, cozy and provided a feel of privacy even being close to downtown. We had a wonderful time and would/will go back. It was perfect for the three of us, all adults. I highly recommend staying there, no surprises or horror stories to be told from our stay.

Great location in downtown Apalachicola!!

  • 5 of 5

We have visited Apalachicola many times in the past, but this time we decided to stay in the downtown area so we could be within walking distance to all the shops and restaurants. This loft was definitely in the perfect location for that! Everything was within walking distance and there were bike's provided as well which we used several times during our stay. The loft is beautifully decorated and we felt right at home the minute we walked through the door. Thanks so much for providing such a wonderful space and we will definitely be back!

Love this place

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay at Yuletide. Just as with the first visit a year ago everything was perfect. The place is very clean and well equipped. Anything you could possibly need they have for you. I love the convenience of being right there in walking distance to everything in Apalachicola. A short beautiful drive to the beaches. In the past i've stayed on SGI and drove to Apalachicola every evening, so now i reverse that and stay in Apalachicola and drive to the beach. The kitchen is so well equipped, the living area very comfortable, and the loft where the bedroom is great. It is so quiet, you would never know you are in the middle of town. Apalachicola is such gem of a town. Making reservations and communication with Yuletide is so easy. Love it there and look forward to next year!

Such Charm!

  • 4 of 5

The loft was wonderful and fit our needs perfectly! The location is great if you want to be in downtown Apalach and close to a great neighborhood to bike through. The exposed brick and board and batten walls made the accommodations very cozy with character. Thank you from the Greens!
