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 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!

Very cute place!
We were lucky to find Don's place since a previous reservation at another property canceled 2 weeks before our arrival! The apartment was unique and I loved it! There isn't much "privacy" as all the rooms are somewhat open to each other (you have to go through the large bedroom to get to the bathroom area and the small bedroom has a door, but the wall doesn't go all the way to the ceiling--think shotgun house) but for my mom and my 2 daughters and me, it worked out well. The kitchen was gorgeous and looked to have everything we would need to cook, but we met friends for most meals. Benton Park Cafe right around the corner was really good. Don was very easy to reach, has a binder ready with lots of information and was a gracious host. It was a cute neighborhood with plenty of parking. It was a really nice place to stay.
A great place to stay!
Visited St Louis for a couple ball games and sight seeing. The stay was great!
Very nice place. Close to all the main attractions of St. Louis. Tons of good places to eat and get some drinks. The owner is very nice and flexible with check in and check out times. The place has everything you need to stay for a weekend or even a full week. Washer and dryer, all the cooking utensils you need. Overall it was a great place and I would stay here again if I came back to St. Louis.
Beyond our expectations!
My family and I have stayed at a lot of VRBO listing all over the US, and this one is by far one of the best. The pictures do not give it justice. Don was amazing and very helpful. There are several places to eat or listen to live music within walking distance. We walked to and from Venice Cafe to listen to live music late at night and felt very safe. Thank you Don for a wonderful stay!
The Benton Park property was awesome! We loved the place, its ambiance, and the location. Perfect for a Cardinals weekend. We wish we could have stayed longer! Thanks to Don for his hospitality! We will definitely be recommending Benton Park to all of our friends making trips to St. Louis!
Nice overnight stay
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, property was clean, and had everything we needed. Street was quiet and the people of the neighborhood were friendly. Communication from Don was great. Loved the recommendations for local dining. We would stay here again.
