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.

Exactly what we expected.

  • 5 of 5

Marsha's place was nice, the view was fantastic, and the location was great. Marsha was always quick to reply and was very kind. Even all the hotel staff were friendly and helpful. A previous review mentioned noise from the flag poles, and Marsha replied that it was fixed. The noise came back while we were there and got progressively worse, until I mentioned it to her. She reached out to the hotel and it was immediately taken care of. If you hear the flagpoles, let someone know. Otherwise enjoy the view and have a great vacation here. If we have another vacation in Miami we'll see if Marsha's place is available, as we'd both like to return.

Spectacular View, Perfect Locates, and Immaculate Condo

  • 5 of 5

What an absolute treat this place is. Here is why you should consider staying with Marsh at ther penthouse in the Bentley:

- Condo is in the Art Deco District with ocean view. Yet it is a short distance for the commotion of he District, So you can sleep at night.

- Condo has a awesome deck overlooking ocean. Wonderful for sitting at night time.

- Botique Hotel - not one of the congested skyskapers.

- Immaculate in upkeep

- super friendly staff. Miguel was always going out of his way to help.

- Marsha is so responsive and easy to work with.

- Beach chairs and towels for the beach. Beach chairs already set up. All you need to do is walk a short distance to beach.

Well worth every dollar!!!

We spent ten wonderful days in this unit. We loved the entire experience. The hotel staff were so friendly and helpful that you felt like you were coming home every night. The unit is cozy and comfortable. The deck is unbelievable with views directly out over the Atlantic Ocean across the street. There is a pool just steps from the front door of the unit. I would stay here again without hesitation!!

Owner's Response: Hello Scott, Thank you for your 5 star review. You certainly made me smile and will help other travelers imagine what it is like to stay in my personal condo suite at The Bentley. I remember that you called me with worries right after Hurricane Irma with concerns about the condition of my condo and the South Beach area. While I had the utmost concern for my Florida neighbors on the West Coast, I was able to let you know that South Beach was spared any serious damage from that horrendous storm. I am so glad you were able to keep your reservation and enjoyed your South Beach Holiday. Hurry back. Regards, Marsha

Owner's Response: Hi Brenda, Thanks so much for your great review. When you made your reservation, you said you were looking for a place to "sight see during the day and enjoy the beach" on your first trip to South Beach. I'm so happy that you enjoyed your stay in my condo and I look forward to hearing from you again. Warm regards, Marsha
