Apalachicola apartment description

Please check out some great rates for December 2014 Only $60 per night or $350 weekly or $800 for a 28 day stay! This cozy and comfortable two bedroom/one bath apartment is attached to my home. I live in the historic district in Apalachicola and a steamboat builder built my house in the late 1800’s. In the south, homes were built with the kitchens not part of the main house to prevent the heat going into the home. This apartment at one time was the original kitchen and later attached to the main house. My Mother-In-Law lived in the apartment until she went into nursing care. The apartment has been painted and has new carpet. There is a Queen bed (with new mattress) in the master bedroom. The second bedroom has a full size bed. The bathroom has a walk-in shower. There is also a Queen sleeper sofa in the living room. There is basic cable TV and a DVD player. Free WiFi. The apartment has a fully equipped kitchen with dishes, pots and pans, flatware, full size refrigerator, stove, microwave, coffee maker, toaster and blender. (Sorry, no dishwasher). There is a washer/dryer unit in the apartment. You will have a small private screened in porch. Plenty of free parking, plus there is room to park your boat/trailer. You are minutes to our Battery Park Marina and one block to the beautiful Apalachicola Bay. This is an extremely safe community and the apartment is in a very quiet residential neighborhood. This is a great area to take walks and to ride bikes. It is about a five-minute walk to our quaint downtown shopping area. We have absolutely fantastic restaurants! Our beautiful St. George Island is less than a 15-minute drive. Extra amenities can be provided for reasonable fees; such as daily housekeeping.

                      Car: Recommended

                      Once the third largest port on the Gulf of Mexico, Apalachicola's diverse and colorful past remains visible today. There are nearly 900 historic homes and buildings listed within the National Register Historic District. Visitors are invited to stroll along the wide tree-lined streets where picturesque Victorian homes nestled amid magnolias display the charm of years gone by in Apalachicola. Apalachicola's rich history and a maritime culture are complimented by the Apalachicola area's bountiful natural resources. The Apalachicola River and Apalachicola Bay provide great fishing opportunities for both fresh and salt water fishing buffs. Outdoor enthusiasts can explore the endless bays and waterways by kayak, canoe, riverboat or sailboat while in Apalachicola. Visitors can also enjoy land-based adventures by hiking, picnicking or biking through the thousands of acres of primitive forests. Apalachicola is the county seat for Franklin County Florida, home to some of the nation’s most pristine beaches. A chain of offshore barrier islands protects the Apalachicola Bay. Apalachicola also boasts a sprawling landscape that includes the Apalachicola National Forest (500,000 acres) and the Apalachicola National Estuarine Research Reserve (246,000 acres). Recreational activities abound.

                      Visitors to Apalachicola can also spend time browsing through Apalachicola's unique galleries, stores and antique shops or enjoy a guided tour along the Historic Apalachicola waterfront.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1985

                      About the owner: I initially moved to Apalachicola in 1984 and have really enjoyed living here. It is a beautiful area and a very safe community. I have lived in Illinois, South Florida, Central Florida, Washington DC and Atlanta, and I love this part of North Florida. We only have one traffic light in our entire County and very light traffic.

                      Why the Owner Chose Apalachicola:
                      I have traveled frequently for fun and for business. My best memories are places I have stayed that are not so typical. VRBO offers unique places to stay. When we have visitors to our area, they will ask, “where to the locals eat?”, or they will comment, “I wish I lived here”. I think staying in an apartment gives our guests an opportunity to what it feels like to live in a quaint, quiet and laid back community.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                      There are many nice places to stay within my community. My goal is for my guests to have a nice pleasant stay and have a memorable experience. Our beaches are beautiful, our restaurants are fantastic, our Apalachicola Oysters are the best oysters in the World!
