About Don Morgan
I'm married to Phyllis, whom you see in my picture. I'm a psychologist, and was on the faculty of the Rutgers Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology for 20 years. These days, in addition to running this short-term rental apartment, I'm working on a house we just designed and built, building furniture, playing music and doing photography. We are experienced world travelers and have been guests at many Airbnb's and VRBO's. We are also hosts of our beautiful Airbnb/VRBO apartment in Saint Louis' historic Benton Park neighborhood. We enjoy both sides of the Airbnb/VRBO experience and look forward to meeting you either as our guest or when we travel and are guests
Don Morgan purchased this Apartment in 2017
Why Don Morgan chose Benton Park
We bought this property from our friends who had renovated it beautifully and run it as an Airbnb/Homeaway rental for a couple of years. I enjoy fixing up houses and also enjoy meeting people and helping them have a good time when visiting Saint Louis, so this was a perfect match for me. I'm a transplant from New York City/Jersey City area and I now love living in Saint Louis and sharing its many great aspects with people. This part of the city -Benton Park and Soulard -is a vibrant, homey, neighborhood with lots of creative interesting people. We have some of the best bars and restaurants in the city - from quirky dive bars with cheap drinks to top-end craft cocktails and gourmet food, plus live music, art galleries, Cardinals and Blues games, antiques, the Anheuser Busch brewery tours, Soulard Market, and plenty of history. So Saint Louis is becoming a cool destination for people to visit for fun and it is all nearby!

Awesome neighborhood and accommodation!
We recently enjoyed two days in this Benton Park accommodation and loved it as much as the photos that caught our eye to stay here. Don met us upon arrival in St. Louis/Benton Park and gave us a few introductory details to make sure our stay would be just right - and it was:)! We also loved the restaurants within walking distance and the neighborhood vibes given off by folks walking their dog, getting a coffee, or getting a meal to go from one of the many tasty options 'just around the corner':)! Don was also great to communicate with upon booking and promptly and efficiently answered any questions we had. It was nice to come back 'home' after a day of walking and sightseeing and settle in for the night. This is also a very quiet neighborhood at night which made for a good night's sleep. Uber was available to the downtown area within minutes and was a quick way to get around when that option was preferred. We'd definitely stay here again - and hope to!
One night getaway
Don was an excellent host. He was easy to get ahold of and very prompt. The apartment was very, very cute and clean. He even has coffee, tea, shampoo, detergent, etc. if needed. It is in a great location and Don is very informative. I would definitely go back and highly recommend this place.
Don was great to give information on not only the neighborhood, but St. Louis also. If we had any questions he was very quick to respond. This unit is really cute, quiet and very close to downtown. There are several neighborhood eateries/bars to visit. We went to the Benton Park Café for a great breakfast, it was only two blocks away. Peacemakers is very close and has great seafood. We would recommend this unit to anyone. We will be back again!
Had a short stay, but enjoyed the atmosphere, nicely furnished, had everything we needed. Don was attentive, friendly and informative, would stay again if in the area!
Very nice place. Great places to go walking distance in neighborhoods.
Easy process great place. Would stay again next time.
Even better in person!
This rental was so cute and well maintained. Don was there to answer any questions we had and there was a binder full of places to eat within walking distance and other things to do. The rental was clean when we arrived and well stocked with everything you would need. I would highly recommend this!! We took Don's recommendation and walked to eat in the neighborhood. We also ate at the Benton Park Café for breakfast before heading out. I would highly recommend eating there! It was delicious and very good priced. If you wanted to walk downtown you could, but it's a short drive as well. The neighborhood was safe to walk around in.
