About Barbara Marshall

Jay and I moved from Washington DC in 2006 to St. Petersburg to be near aging family members. Jay is a retired military officer; we both come from long-time careers from both overseas and in Washington DC. We now own and operate our own business as senior move managers where we help the elder population relocate. We've both served on our neighborhood association board--Jay most recently as the association president. We are very active in the St. Petersburg community; are members of the St. Petersburg Chamber of Commerce, and the Women's Chamber of Commerce, the downtown Episcopal Cathedral, and enjoy all that St. Petersburg has to offer.

Barbara Marshall purchased this studio in 2007

Why Barbara Marshall chose St Petersburg

We chose Historic Old Northeast in 2007 to live because of its eclectic charm and history and location to so many great places all within walking distance--marinas, boat ramps, live theater, yacht club, the renown Vinoy Hotel and Resort, Saturday morning market, many restaurants and nightlife venues, and museums, and sports venues like Tropicana Field where the Tampa Bay Rays play. This neighborhood is neighbor-friendly and family-friendly. It's very active and social. Downtown St. Petersburg has its 'First Friday' which is a free outdoor concert gathering. There are many concerts held in the nearby parks to include live musicians, food and art festivals and so many more.

What makes this studio unique

We bought our home in 2007 because of its old historic charm (1925) with its front porch swing, brick patio, and the detached guest studio which was recently converted (October 2013) from private use to a vacation home to travelers and business professionals to St. Petersburg. The Palm Suite Retreat is immaculate, nicely furnished with great comfort and quality in mind. The kitchen offers a large size wall mounted microwave, 4 burner stove, large refrigerator, new kitchenware chosen to match the Palm Suite Retreat theme of the studio. The owners live in the main house on the property and can provide any information needed about activities and events in St. Petersburg.

Convenient, modern and cozy

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this studio for 12 days in early January 2015. It was perfect! The studio is very modern with a lovely little kitchenette - all very clean. It is incredibly convenient to the waterfront, museums and restaurants. I was able to walk everywhere I needed to go. There is also a pool and a delightful garden area. I would definitely stay here again. GM

We tried on the downtown St. Pete lifestyle and loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful interlude in St. Pete's Old Northeast. There was always something going on, and just about everything was within walking distance. We enjoyed theater, sports, art, food, and music in various venues. The apartment was very clean and well-appointed and had everything we needed. The owners were wonderful to us and made us feel like part of the neighborhood! We would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking to spend time in downtown St. Pete.

Owner's Response: Thank you Ted and Beata! We really enjoyed meeting you and spending time with you and meeting some of your long time friends when you used our backyard patio for a gathering. We count you as new friends and look forward to seeing you in December. Barbara and Jay.

The Right Vacation Choice!

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation in the Palm Suite Retreat couldn't have been better and more relaxing. The helpful and warm hospitality of Barbara and Jay made us feel right at home. Comfortable, clean, and well-appointed, we truly had a retreat "home away from home" for quiet time together as a couple, but also within easy walking distance of a vibrant downtown scene, and convenient driving to lots of area attractions. The PSR was everything that we saw on the website, and more.

This was the right choice for a relaxing and memorable vacation. We will be back. Jay and Barbara are the best!

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

We were honored when the hosts accepted our request to stay in the Palm Suite Retreat in St. Petersburg. Immaculate, every amenity you could possibly think of was available, it was even more attractive then the pictures depict, and the owners are beyond the best, even asking if we could think of anything else to make a travelers stay more enjoyable! The bed and linens were extremely comfortable (I am so picky about my sheets being soft and fine gauge, I've even brought my own along in the past, but these were top notch), I can't begin to express how much we loved staying at this "retreat". We would have booked again, however, it is already occupied during the time we need to stay, so if you're thinking about this property, book it, because as more people stay and get to know the owners, this will become booked solid all year long! Thank you for making our visit to St. Petersburg so special!

Delightful!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from a four night stay in this lovely home away from home. Beautifully decorated, equipped with everything you could possibly need, and plenty of windows to let the light in. Barbara and Jay are wonderful and truly care about your comfort and enjoyment. Very close to all the downtown parks, museums, restaurants, and activities, so we were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. Excellent location, great restaurants, and plenty to keep you busy. We highly recommend a stay here and hope to be back sooner than later.

Owner's Response: Thank you Lauri for your review! Jay and I are happy you were so pleased with your stay at the Palm Suite Retreat. Glad you and Terry enjoyed all of what St. Pete offers, and that our PSR's location was so suitable for your 3-5 mile walks everyday! We'd love to have you as returning guests, and look forward to it. Barb and Jay

ACTIVE IN DOWNTOWN ST. PETE.

  • 5 of 5

We spent three lovley weeks at the Palm Suite Retreat in the city of St Petersburg, Fl.

in the winter of 2014. The location was central to all downtown activities and we could walk to most everything. We had been staying at the beach for several years and thought we would try the beautiful city. Barbara and Jay our hosts made us feel like locals within a few short days. Their local knowlwdge and genuine desire to make us welcome made our stay very rewarding and pleasurable. We recomend staying at the Palm Suite Retreat and we plan on doing so ourselves.
