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.

Could have been better

  • 2 of 5

My wife and I stayed at the condo. The location was good as it was right on ocean drive. Given it was Miami music week I expected it to be crowded and noisey at the hotel but it was quite excessive. Neighbors had loud music playing all night. People were yelling and arguing in the hallway at all hours of the night. When entering the condo it smelled damp in the condo. Really didn't use the air conditioning as when turned on it a had foul smell. A guest had checked out earlier in the day. The bathroom was not cleaned well. Poor shower pressure. Water pressure stopped frequently. I guess because the condo is directly under the pool, you could hear rattling of pipes and pool pumps making noise 24/7. Made if difficult to sleep. Had to pay cleaning fee (which I knew about ahead of time) but cleaning service never came during our stay. They were supposed to clean upon exit and yesterday but never came. Beware that there is a fee for the resort. This includes happy hour, beach chairs. We were told at check in this was included but then was told we had to pay. It rained and was windy throughout the stay. The entrance to the condo has an outside hallway. Water had come through under the door. Also the bedroom smelled of marijuana from the neighbors next door.

I had really high expectations based on the previous reviews. I would not return.

Wonderful trip to South Beach!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great condo in a perfect location in South Beach! We enjoy staying on the south end, which is quieter but close enough to the action. From the terrace you can see Lummus Park, Ocean Avenue and the beach in the distance. It was fun to watch the happenings and the people coming and going.

We do not rent a car and can walk to all of our favorite restaurants. Make sure you eat at Big Pink, The News Café, and Naked Taco. It is breath taking to sit outside in the evening at Smith and Wollensky and watch the cruise ships sail out of the shipping lane to take off in the open ocean. You can rent bikes and ride down the boardwalk. Eat lunch at the Setai, in their pool restaurant. It’s one of the few restaurants with a great view of the beach. Also try lunch in the restaurant overlooking the pool and beach at the Marriott Stanton.

The condo was furnished very comfortably. The bedroom is a little small, but has a nice window that lets in lots of sunlight. The staff at the Bentley Hotel was superb! Marsha was wonderful to work with. I would recommend this condo to anyone! We will stay here on our return trip!

You were the perfect guests. Regards, Marsha

Awesome Condo, Great Amenities & Wonderful Location

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Marsha, we loved our stay in your Condo. Very impressed with the cleanliness and service. Being located right on Ocean Drive was a plus and with a Walgreens and Liquor store right on the corner, we didn't have to go far for what we needed. As well, the free transportation that was provided by the hotel was awesome - we used it quite often to get around South Beach. The ocean front/ocean view location of your condo made our stay that much more enjoyable. Loved it and hope to return soon.

Owner's Response: Hi Angie, Thanks for your great review! I was so happy to hear from you after your stay in my condo. From our many previous emails, I know that you and your husband were very excited to spend part of your vacation as my guest in South Beach all the way from your home in Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada. I look forward to having you come back again anytime. Thanks so much for writing. Marsha

I have booked through VRBO many times and all have been good, but this was EXCEPTIONAL!! First off, Marsha was a pleasure to deal with. Secondly, I have been to Southbeach numerous times, and this condo by far has it all. Spectacular view, beautifully decorated, clean, lovely pool and sun deck, and a wonderful hotel staff. Marsha, thank you so much for making our Christmas 2016 vacation one of the best. We look forward to returning!

Owner's Response: Happy New Year Sally, Thanks for your very special 5 star review. It was always a pleasure corresponding with you during the past few months while you planned your South Beach holiday in my top floor condo suite #500. Even though people see the photos and relate to me, I think they are still surprised and impressed when they arrive and actually see my condo and find out that I am the only condo owner that does not use any "off site managers or cleaners or inferior services" because The Bentley staff takes total care of my guests during their stay. I'm so happy you enjoyed your vacation. I have many repeat guests, please plan to reserve again early. I'd love to have you stay with me again! Regards, Marsha

What a View

  • 5 of 5

This lovely condo is in the heart of SOBE. The hotel with which it is associated, the Bentley, took great care of us. The view from the large balcony was perfect - the unit had everything to make our stay great! Super clean, too! Will return next year.

Also thanks for making other travelers aware that I do not use any "off site" managers or cleaners and that I am the only owner in The Bentley that has the hotel staff take personal care of my guests. I look forward to hearing from you in the future. Happy holidays! Marsha
