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
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.
Unobstructed view of the state owned beach will always be protected from a 'high-rise development' being built and blocking the view.
For couples this is the ideal place to stay on Saint Pete Beach small, affordable and what a value in location. The condo complex is calm, quiet, relaxing.
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)

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.
This huge efficiency is ideal for two guests, for a lengthy stay.
It is a bright and open space, recently remodeled. In high end style. The window and sliding glass door let in the Florida sunlight from morning until night! It was our "HEAVENLY PARADISE" for a month. The ocean is directly across the street, and our view is glorious!!!!!! The other residents, Friendly Natives, are great, welcoming, and fun to be with. The pool is set warm for an enjoyable entry and swim. The pool is surrounded by a hibiscus hedge. PARADISE FOUND AT St Pete's Beach! We hope to reserve here, forever! The owner is great to work with and very accommodating. A 5 STAR rating for this beauty!
We had such a great time here during our 5 day stay! The condo is modern, very cute and actually quite spacious and comfy. it was equipped with everything we needed. I loved that a 1 minute walk had my feet right in the white beach sand. The space is perfect for 2 people. We traveled as 2 females and felt very safe. The view is great from the condo and there's so much to do in the area. We also enjoyed the breakfast bar across the street that overlooks the ocean as well as the cocktail bar a short walk down the beach.
We'll definitely be staying here again!
