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 Florida Main North West

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 -

PERFECTION!!!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we pulled in the parking area, we were flabbergasted! The location could not have been more convenient! The court yard - wonderful! The amenities (bikes, grill, privacy, landscaping) - wonderful! The loft - unbelievable!!! LOVED IT!!! What a fabulous job you did refurbishing and decorating! My only complaint was that I wasn't able to stay longer. I just can't praise your loft or my stay there enough. I'll look forward to my next stay in Apalachacola w/ y'all. Thank you sincerely.

Unique loft in downtown Apalachicola

  • 5 of 5

Spacious and well thought out. Such a unique space, yet functional and fun.

Nice decor, great location! Only downside I wish I couldnt see the gas station sign from the courtyard and living area of the loft.If the fence were raised a few feet in that corner of the courtyard we wouldnt see it, and I would love it even more.

It was so much better than an apt. or hotel room! The yuletide loft is great!

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking your time to give us your thoughts. And I wish the gas station would go away and that we didn't have a fence ordinance. Hope you can come back soon!

Beautiful and relaxing! One of a kind!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from a 7-night stay at Yule Tide. We loved everything about the property. It is beautifully decorated and so comfortable. We enjoyed spending a couple of days just relaxing there. Parking right outside was convenient and we were able to walk everywhere. The waterfront was only minutes away. We cannot say enough about how wonderful this property is and we are looking forward to returning soon.
