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 -

What makes this townhome unique

A unique living experience awaits at YuleTide. Enjoy the airy loft, which looks out on your private courtyard. Walk to award winning restaurants and wine bars. Unique shopping, antiquing, and art galleries await you. World class fishing and wildlife sightseeing all a couple blocks away at the marina.

Yule Tide in Apalachicola

  • 5 of 5
Ironically we stayed during the beginning of Xmas preparations and joined the locals in celebration. Can't say enuf about the entire experience. The lofted apartment is perfect, the owners delightful and accommodating and the town a very pleasant surprise! Even tho much is closed the first 2 weeks of December, still plenty to do and EAT. Fresh(est) seafood galore and beautifully prepared. We ate at Tammara's (café and also tapas bar) every day. Everything was great, but the whole, scored and fried snapper was a show stopper both in taste and presentation. Will definitely return!

Seafood Festival

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at Yule Tide during the Apalachicola Seafood Festival. It was perfect - great location and great space for our needs. We loved being able to walk all around town. The loft space looks good in the pictures - it is even better being there. Thanks so much for sharing your lovely space in Apalachicola.

A perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5
My husband had stayed at Yuletide last March and I was unable to join him at the time. He enjoyed Yuletide and the time he spent in Apalachicola so much that he was excited to come back to the same place just a half year later! I knew what to expect of the accommodations: the photos on the website are very accurate, and my husband confirmed the excellence of the amenities, cleanliness, and comfort. What surprised me was how much I loved Apalachicola. It is such a charming town with a wealth of varied things to do. We were only there for 4 days so decided to eat out every night: Up the Stairs, Up the Creek, Tapas, and Gormley's (at the Gibson Inn; replacing Ira's) were all wonderful. After exploring the town, we spent our days at nearby beaches and nature trails. I highly recommend spending a morning at St. Vincent's Island (via Captain Joe's ferry) and taking bicycles; we were on foot and only got to see a small percentage of the island. Also recommended: walking around Lafayette Park, a tour of the Ormon House, browsing the many quaint shops (ranging from upscale Grady's Market to rustic Tin Shed). We will definitely be back!

Weekend Getaway with my Husband!!

  • 5 of 5
What a GREAT find in Apalachicola! I am an artist and love architecture and creativity - this place sent me REELING! The decor, the uses of materials (concrete floors, painted brick, all brick walls, huge log curtains - the cool bed!) The pictures are just what you will find, but once you are there it is so much better! Close to everything! (my husband couldn't believe the location!) Easy check in and out process. We didn't have any problems. Yes, you are right next door to the gas station, but you really are disturbed unless you are sitting out there in the middle of the day - when you should be see sights or eating some great food. For what we wanted it for, it was perfect. Thank you for offering this little piece of heaven for us to enjoy! We will be back!!!

Can't forget the "Forgotten Coast"

Can't forget the "Forgotten Coast"
  • 5 of 5
Enjoyed the stay - this was our first time at the Yule Tide Loft, but we've made numerous trips to Apalach. The loft was very nicely furnished and clean, convenient to downtown stores and restaurants (walking distance), and provided a full kitchen and washer/dryer (very handy). Ours was primarily a biking/kayaking trip. I highly recommend St. Vincent Island, Tate's Hell, and all of the wonderful beaches - St. George, Mashes Sands Beach at Ochlockonee Bay, Carrabelle Beach, etc. Also, if you like biology/marine life, go to the Gulf Specimens Lab at Panacea. (this is not really a tourist attraction, so if you are a prissy tree hugger who doesn't like getting your hands dirty, don't go.) The grill in the private courtyard at the loft was great for grilling steaks (we live on the coast, so we get seafood a lot). Bikes are provided for riding around town, although we brought our own. The helpful property manager is right next door and she keeps a toolbox - very impressive! All in all, we highly recommend this location for a very laid-back, entertain-yourself, enjoy-the-natural-beauty type of getaway.

Felt at home

  • 5 of 5
Loved Yuletide. Beach/industrial loft decor with custom cabinetry and built-ins were fabulous. We felt comfortable right away. Bought soft crabs and flounder at the 13 mile fish market and groceries at the Piggly Wiggly and cooked several meals there. The small kitchen inspired me. I was torn about the area. Apalachicola is a charming town and I respect their efforts to develop the downtown, but it was REALLY quiet! We walked around on a Saturday evening (6 pm) and few of the shops/galleries were open. Same for the next day. Food prices higher than Key West--over 20 bucks for a grouper sandwich at several locations. St. George Island's beautiful beaches a short car ride away! Some surrounding areas depressed--like Eastpoint --dying fishing industry? But Apalachicola is clean and well-maintained--like I said, just wish some more of the businesses were open.
