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 Flamingo / Lummus

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.

Beautiful condo

  • 5 of 5

Just like the photos, a beautiful condo with a great deck with ocean view. Location is good in that it's on the southern part of Ocean Drive, so you can easily walk either to amenities in that area, or a few blocks south to the SoFi area. Recommended.

Could not have been any better!

  • 5 of 5

Marsha, the Bentley Staff (esp. Miguel), and the beach staff (Jodelle and Justin) were amazing. We were hoping for a fun, exciting, relaxing, no stress weekend and our hopes were exceeded. The view was like none I've ever had from the water to the palm trees to the people watching. The location was perfection. Right on Ocean Drive but not in the heart of the activity. Walking distance to fantastic restaurants and shopping and steps away from a gorgeous beach. The unit was the perfect size for our group of three but could have easily handled four. It had everything we needed and then some. It was spotless and updated and well layed out. The happy hour and coffee and fruit in the morning was a nice addition. We did not get to the pool since we were all about the beach but we did walk up and it looked just as great as the rest of the facility. Marsha was so accommodating and always available for a quick question. Miguel and Jodelle stand out as two people who clearly love their job and take pride in their community always offering up suggestions so that we could experience the local flavor of South Beach. We are looking forward to making this an annual visit and we wouldn't want to stay anywhere else. Thanks all!

Clean, beautiful condo in perfect South Beach location

  • 5 of 5

I have been to this area 4-5 times and I love it! Going forward, Marsha's condo will be my first choice every time. The location was perfect and the condo was clean, spacious, and had an amazing ocean view. Loved the rooftop pool area! The hotel staff couldn't have been more accommodating! The hotel offers complimentary transportation all along South Beach. We walked most places but when we wanted to go a little further, we used this shuttle (like a golf cart) and never had to wait more than 10 minutes for a ride.

There is a running/biking trail along the ocean right out front of the hotel. It rained a bit while we were there so we asked about a fitness center. The hotel doesn't have a fitness center but we had access to a nearby hotel within their hospitality group that had beautiful amenities: fitness center, spa, gorgeous pool/bar/restaurant. We ran there once and took the shuttle there another time. When we booked Marsha's condo, we didn't know that the free shuttle and access to the other hotel was part of the package - what a nice bonus!

I would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: Hello Joanne, Your 5 star review made my day! I am very pleased that you will choose to stay in my condo suite #500 again in the future after having experienced other accommodations in South Beach that cannot compare to my very special condo with the BEST location and BEST private balcony in the Art Deco and beach area of Ocean Drive. I can't wait to have you return in the future. Warm regards, Marsha

Outstanding unit

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in South Beach several times over the past six years at multiple properties. This unit is by far the best. The unit is as described. Very well furnished, very clean, within walking distance to shopping, restaurants, the beach, etc. The ocean view from the living room and private balcony is amazing. The staff at the Bentley is very good. Marsha is very responsive and a pleasure to work with.

Owner's Response: Hello Marc, Thank you for taking the time to write your 5 star review of my top floor condo suite #500 at The Bentley. The fact that you are a frequent visitor to South Beach and have already booked your return stay as my guest for next year should help other guests feel confident in reserving my awesome condo located right on Ocean Drive for their own special get-away to South Beach. I know they will enjoy their stay too. Thanks again. Warm regards, Marsha
