Apalachicola apartment description

This second story, two bedroom, apartment is fully stocked for your private getaway. Ideal for couples, artists, outdoor adventures, fishermen and vacationers.
This is spot to settle in with a good book and view the ever changing tides as the fish and water fowl ebb and flow throughout the day. Watch the oystermen, fishing boats, crab boats and sports fishermen parade the deep water channel between you and the deserted wooded island just a stone's throw away as you look out over the water.
Visitors ask when is the best time to fish there on the property and the answer is when you see the fish. You can spot triple tail, flounder, trout, red fish, whiting and mullet at different times of the day directly from your second floor location. At low tide you will see the locals walk the sand bars with their mullet nets to collect their catch. Evenings you can watch lantern bearing fishermen gigging for fresh flounder -some in boats and some wading. Those boats doing lazy circles in front of the property are checking their crab traps. Sports fishermen haunt the end of the dock next door to cast their nets for bait.
Sunrise and sunset along with the ever changing tides are the major events of the day.
There is free Wi-Fi, H.B.O. and expanded movie channels in addition to cable television.
This is our sunset unit as it has three windows facing west. The interior decoration is by Christian Klema and the original artwork is by Robert Lindsley. The apartments were designed as a vacation destination for the owner's family.
As such you will personal touches, such as upscale furnishings, beds, linens and attention to detail throughout the apartment. Be sure to leave us a note in the guest book as our goal is to provide you with the comforts of your vacation getaway for years to come as well. Returning guests always qualify for a discount.
The apartments sit atop a beautiful restaurant that is closed for renovations. There is plenty of parking for your R.V. and boat on the property, (R.V. hook-ups not available). The closest public boat launch is about a mile west on Highway 98.
You will witness locals launching and retrieving their boats at all hours on the property adjacent to ours but that is private property and the locals know the many details of that complicated water way with its' shallow spots. Best always to use the public launches.
Everything you need for your stay is stocked for your arrival. The kitchen has a refrigerator, microwave, sink and coffee maker along with glasses, flatware and food storage bowls. There is no oven/range but there is an electric skillet.
Housekeeping is end of stay only. Most guests trot across the street to Dollar General to stock up on additional supplies and personal items whose needs arise as the stay goes on.
If you are traveling with a small dog do let us know in advance. There is a small fee for the additional housekeeping. Your dog must be trained not to bark as well as always be on a leash on property. Clean up after your dog. Deposits are forfeit for failure to do so.
We love children but this property is directly on the water . For safety concerns children under the age of twelve are not recommended and, of course, teenagers must be supervised.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About the owner: Local artist and business person. Apalachicola attracts artists from all around the world. I was no different. The scenery here infects every aspect of your life and quiets the mind.

                  Why the Owner Chose Apalachicola:
                  I chose these second story apartments above a restaurant that I am remodeling as family retreat. I wanted to be able to provide my friends, family, fellow outdoorsmen and artists and restful but upscale retreat. Here is a place for family, couples and still solitude and constant nature. Birds, butterflies and marine life in a constant migration blended with glorious sunrises and sunsets. We picked out comfortable furnishings and bedding to soothe the soul and provide a bit of luxury in a great spot of nature.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                  It is all about the views here. Nature. Sunset. Water. Islands. Wild life. Artists come to paint. Folks come to get back to nature. The historic town of Apalachicola is enchanting and relaxing yet offers some wonderful shopping and restaurants.
