About Marsha McCarthy

I have been a real estate agent in Buffalo NY for the past 26 years. I bought my condo suite on Ocean Drive in South Beach for a place to vacation with my family to enjoy the beautiful Miami sunshine!

Marsha McCarthy purchased this condo in 2008

Why Marsha McCarthy chose Miami Beach

I bought on Ocean Drive in South Beach because it is a place you can enjoy year round. People from all over the world want to visit South Beach. I love it because there is so much activity. Ocean Drive is non-stop fun! Everyone can enjoy people-watching, swimming, eating, shopping, and relaxing. Getting away from northern Winters isn't bad either!

What makes this condo unique

The Bentley is located at 510 Ocean Drive, the famous crossroads of Ocean Drive and 5th St., Miami Beach, considered to be a fabulous entertainment destination in the heart of all that South Beach has to offer. You can walk to everything from 5 star restaurants to neighborhood hangouts, hot night clubs to trendy bars and chic coffee cafes. OR you can spend quiet time in Lummus Park, walk the famous beach and relax at the roof top pool and on your private condo balcony.

My condo suite #500 has a spacious living area with a wall-mounted TV separated from a cozy bedroom with a 2nd wall-mounted TV, offering full privacy. The fully applianced kitchen opens out to the living area and a well-appointed marble bathroom with bidet offers upscale amenities. My suite has a huge private ocean front balcony with beautiful views of the action on Ocean Drive and one of most famous areas of Miami's South Beach! My guests will also enjoy the spectacular view from The Bentley Hotel's roof top terrace with pool and hot tub and lounge chairs that has been judged the 'Best Roof Top Pool' in the Art Deco area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Amazing location! The view was outstanding and the hotel superb!

  • 5 of 5

Traveling for my sister's bday with her fiancé was a blast as we arrived at Marsha's penthouse at the Bentley. Everything was exactly as described and the pull out couch for me was wonderful! I enjoyed having a full kitchen so we didn't have to eat out for every meal, but hey, if you are too tired to cook, there is a menagerie of wonderful resturaunts downstairs! Will definitely stay here again! Dealing with Marsha was a wonderful experience and I recommend anyone traveling to Miami and Southbeach to definitely stay here! Thanks!

Awesome view and location

  • 4 of 5

First of all the pictures are very representative of this condo. Very nice finishes in the kitchen and bathroom. The pool and sun deck were wonderful. Also, it was nice to be able to access all of the amenities of The Bentley. The staff answered any questions we had about shopping, restaurants, and things to see. Marsha was easy to work with and responded whenever we had any questions. My only concern was the sleeper sofa. I think it needs a new mattress or a good pillow top. I slept OK but would have a hard time sharing with another person. I would give this property a 4 1/2 star based on the sleeper sofa. Overall a great place to stay on vacation.

Amazing view and perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

The place definitely exceeded our expectations. It was clean, tastefully decorated and the view from the balcony was priceless. I would say there is no better location to stay in South Beach, just step out and you are in the middle of restaurants, shopping and 30 seconds from the beach. At night we didn't find it too noisy. There is everything you could ask for. The pool looked great, but we didn't use it because of the beach proximity and so many things to do in the area! Marsha was excellent with customer service, very quick to reply and very informative. I would highly recommend this unit to anyone and I would not hesitate to book it again on my next visit!

Owner's Response: Hello Cynthia, You and your family came all the way from Nova Scotia, Canada to South Beach and I hope you will have your great memories of staying in my top floor condo suite to talk about during the coming years! It was great of you to take your time to write a 5 star review for me. I know you went on a cruise after your stay, and I hope you can have an awesome repeat vacation like this again in the future. Please be sure to call me, I'd love to have you as my guest again! Warm regards, Marsha

First time in Miami

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Bentley Hotel. It was our first time in Miami and the staff (Miguel) made our stay feel like we were right at home.

Upon check-in, we had a few questions for Marsha and she responded immediately. In turn, it did not disrupt or delay our vacation.

Location: Easy walk to anywhere you want to go (shopping, restaurants, beach, South Pointe, bakery, marina, bike rental, coffee shops, etc…)

Condo: Very inviting and a great size for us. Full kitchen and the furniture were very comfortable. The view from the living room and the balcony were incredible – very beautiful sunrises and view of the ocean.

We would definitely stay in Marsha’s condo if we return to Miami.

Owner's Response: Hi Danny, You were a pleasure to deal with while you were planning your winter get away in South Beach from your home in Canada. I very much appreciate your great review and telling future guests exactly what they can expect when they arrive at my condo #500 at The Bentley. I'm so happy that you enjoyed your first holiday in Miami Beach and I hope to have you as my guest again in the future. Regards, Marsha

A room with a view

  • 4 of 5

My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely little condo. It has everything that you need and when something was missing or not working then the concierge rectified the issue quickly. The owner of the property was a dream to work with. As this is my first experience with VRBO I was a little apprehensive. She answered all my questions and was extremely accommodating. The view from the couch is beautiful and it's very calming while still in the hustle and bustle of the active Miami Beach Strip. There are bike rentals right outside the door which makes transportation around easy. The condo is located walking distance from great restaurants and stores which makes this an ideal location. My only comment is that on windy days the two flags on the building can be heard through the night. I look forward to returning again.

Owner's Response: Hi Anne, Thanks for your great review and comments about your first VRBO rental. I strive to make all of my guests very comfortable with what many times is an unfamiliar concept. I will talk to the management about what can be done about the noisy flags. Unfortunately, nothing can be done about the South Beach breezes. LOL I hope you contact me again soon for another stay in my condo. Regards, Marsha

Birthday Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Sorry for writing this review very late. I visited this location back in June 2015 to celebrate my birthday...our birthday (I have a twin sister). And It was so easy to book with Martha. She answered all of my emails and calls regarding the location within hours and sometimes minutes! I've been to Miami before but HATED the location I stayed at compared to this rental. The front desk staff were so friendly, and I could text them for anything that I needed, and they would come asap.

Location is important to me and this is probably the best spot on Ocean Drive. It's towards the end so it's easy to haul a cab or walk to the local drug stores, and easy to get back to crowded areas. I love Miami and will stay here every time I visit. Unfortunately, I wont be able to make it this year, but I'm sure I'll be back soon.

Thanks Martha for being so sweet and making it easy to book my vacation.

Owner's Response: Hi Jelisa, Your 5 star review was so great to receive. Of course I remember the reservation for you and your twin. I know that vacationers return many times to South Beach as you do and I'm very pleased that you found my top floor condo suite to be your favorite place to stay. My best to you and your sister and I hope to hear from you again in the future. Marsha
