About Marshall Morris

I am 'in the fore-front' of the photo above: I am a 34 year veteran middle school math educator, married to Susan, a 20 year United States Air force veteran. We have 3 grown educated children. I also am a 29 year volunteer first responder/rescuer with the National Ski Patrol in Connecticut. We both plan to spend time in Florida, where Susan grew-up and Connecticut upon retirement.

Marshall Morris purchased this studio in 2008

Why Marshall Morris chose St Petersburg Area

This Property was the first real estate venture for my wife Susan and I and serves us nicely when we visit St. Pete Beach where Susan was raised and her mom still lives. We knew when we walked in and saw the view it was the place to buy, small, clean, convenient and affordable.

What makes this studio unique

Unobstructed view of the state owned beach will always be protected from a 'high-rise development' being built and blocking the view.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a great little getaway with all the comforts of home! We stayed here for 3 nights prior to meeting with extended family for a week long vacation. This condo is conveniently located across the street from the beach and within walking distance to many great restaurants. The unit is clean and well maintained. We hope to make it back, soon. Chip and Susan provided helpful directions to the unit from Tampa airport.

Beach in the Backyard

  • 5 of 5

We used to travel to SPB as a family every year when I was a kid, so this time around, mom and I made a trip back to see all the old stomping grounds. Chip and Sue's unit was awesome! The condo complex was very quiet, clean, and easy to get around. We rented a car for Tampa and our favorite breakfast place on Pass-A-Grille, but everything else can be accessed by walking. We loved coming back to our "second home" and couldn't have asked for an easier and convenient place to stay. My husband and I are now talking about a trip in the fall!

Amazing condo with outstanding location

  • 5 of 5

Super clean condo with view of St Pete beach out the window. The condo was perfect! It had everything I needed and more. I used the beach chair, umbrella and cooler everyday on my very short walk across the parking lot to the beach. I could not have asked for a better location. St. Pete is a great beach - much less commercial and crowded compaired to Clearwater. I loved the trundle bed! Very comfy with wonderful sheets and cozy blankets. I cooked almost every night in the condo - small cooktop, pots and pans, microwave, frig and freezer were perfect! I loved the use of the space. I had everything I needed right there! Also enjoyed the small outside patio that overlooked the pool. Very very nice stay. I hope to to back soon and when I do I will not stay anywhere else but in this little slice of heaven. Marshall - owner of condo was prompt and super helpful. Everything at the condo was labeled with instructions so it made it so easy to figure everything out. They put much thought into making a stay in their condo easy and very pleasant. Thank you for making my trip so easy and enjoyable!!

GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5

This was our 7th time using VRBO and once again it did not disappoint-we were looking for a condo with a pool and within walking distance of the Gulf and "bam" we found both at The Friendly Native the beach is literally 175 yards from the unit and as you can see in the pictures you have a view of the beach and the pool!!! This unit is small but very accommodating Marshal and Susan have thought of most everything to make your stay comfortable- in the closet they have two beach chairs a very handy 12 pack cooler ,three beach mats and obviously if your flying in these are items your not packing.If your looking for luxurious or high end this is not for you- however if your looking for CLEAN and very functional this is it!! My wife and I were here for four days and it couldn't have been any better the pool was very nice and well kept and the other people staying here we so friendly and pleasant.

There are a few restaurants /Bars within walking distance of the condo that we found to be quite good - we love oyster's and the Oyster Shuckers is just a short walk -also Willies Bar was a lot of fun and close by as well.

This was our first time in St.Pete/ Treasure Island and I went away thinking we need to come back and explore more .As I mentioned the location between Treasure Island and St.Pete is perfect we would definitely stay here again !!!

The owners were very helpful and any email or call was quickly returned - so if your reading this and wondering if you should pull the trigger just remember this is what it is a smaller CLEAN condo to explore from.

Thanks once again Marshall!!! (chip)

Owner's Response: Dear D. from Michigan, Susan & I wish to express our appreciation to you for taking the time to write a review and, of course, a big thank you for the kind words.

Simply a beautiful place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed just two weeks. It was everything I expected and more! The location was ideal for walking on the beach. Nearly everything was in walking distance from the unit restaurants, laundry, entertainment (if you are interested). The families there were warm and inviting, you are not a stranger there. All in all the most relaxing vacation I have spend in many years.
