About Kathy Robinson

The High Cotton Marketplace in which the Swan is located was completed in 2005. Since then the condos on the 2nd floor of each of the 8 commercial/residential units have been either private residences or have had light vacation rental usage. Now Robinson Real Estate Company manages up to 5 of the condos as Apalachicola's Upscale Condo Rentals.

Kathy Robinson purchased this condo in 2005

Why Kathy Robinson chose Apalachicola

The Swan is one of only a few Vacation Rental Properties with a view of the Apalachicola River in the entire area. Park in the private offstreet parking lot and walk everywhere.

What makes this condo unique

We wanted just a short romantic getaway for my husband and myself before Christmas. The Swan was perfect for sightseeing, walking around, and sitting on the balcony watching shrimp boats and bald eagles. The weather was perfect, we ate at The Owl, food was great. We got to meet Richard Beckel, author of the book, The Last Great Bay. Great Book!! The Swan was so clean and master bedroom was so lovely. Perfect Stay, loved it!!

Totally dreamy!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is stunning in every way. Each morning, my husband and I would take our coffee to the deck and watch Apalachicola sunrises, a spectacular tableau of exciting colors. I'm sure Monet would have been moved to capture the beauty. We'd say, this has to be the best place on the whole earth, bar none, to spend quiet grace, reflecting on the past, and dreaming of a future. We're from a state of 'almost heaven'. This spot IS heaven

Great Stay

  • 4 of 5

The property was well kept and in good condition. Plenty of room for two couples to share. The view of the river is slightly obstructed by a few old fisheries that also have some noisy cooling units. The cooling units did not cause any issues with noise inside the condo but we quite loud when sitting on the back patio. Apalachicola is a quaint town best suited for plenty of R&R. We were there for a wedding which held most of the events downtown so the location was perfect. I highly recommend this condo as a great alternative to the mostly outdated hotels in the area.

Owner's Response: Tyler, Thank you for your comments. Some of the charm of Apalachicola is our working water front which does sometimes have noises associated with the local seafood industry commerce. Kathy
