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.

A Cozy Condo in South Beach

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we were warmly greeted at the Bentley Hotel to the moment we had to leave, we couldn't have picked a better place to stay. Marsha's condo is in the perfect location for all things South Beach. Everything is literally within walking distance.

The condo has a magnificent view of Ocean Avenue, the park, the beach and the ocean. We felt like we were at home with the tasteful furnishings and 'beach property' décor. Loved the shower for its roominess and the living room was extremely comfortable to just hang out in and watch the view. When South Beach comes alive at night, the balcony is the place to be. I dare you to be bored!

Marsha, the owner, could not have been nicer in answering all our questions. The staff at the Bentley were very kind, courteous and knowledgeable. We couldn't have picked a better place to stay and the nightly rate was quite reasonable for all you get. I just wish I owned that condo!

Owner's Response: Hey Martin, LOL. If YOU owned my condo where would I go to spend February and my vacations when I need to get away from my home in Buffalo??? You sure made me laugh. Thanks for taking your time to write your glowing five star review. I enjoyed corresponding with you before your South Beach holiday and receiving your comments here to help future guests know what to expect when they reserve through me. Hope to hear from you and David again in the future. Warm regards, Marsha

Amazing stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here mid April 2018 and were very happy with the accommodations.

The host Marsha was very friendly and always replied quickly.

The staff at the Bentley hotel were super friendly and helpful, check in was easy.

The room itself was also great. It was clean and exactly as pictured. The view from the balcony should push this place to the top of your list. While there's plenty to do around the hotel we found ourselves just sitting on the balcony watching all the action. There always seemed to be something entertaining going on. Everything you need is close by and easy to find. The rooftop bar, patio and pool were also very nice. We really enjoyed our stay here and highly recommend this property.

Perfect Location. Relaxing Condo on South Beach.

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing 2 day stay in Marsha's condo. The heated pool was lovely. Loved the location across the street from a small park with a bike rental rack in front of the beach. The hotel staff were very helpful with suggestions. Short walk or taxi ride to restaurants on Washington Street and to the south tip of south beach to watch the sunset or stroll along a quiet, uncrowded walking path during the day. Marsha was extremely helpful and all aspects of our reservation and stay were 10+.

During your reservation process, I was happy to answer your questions about local restaurants and many of the activities that would be available during your stay in South Beach. It's great that you, your husband and your daughter had an awesome time at South Point, at the pool and at the ocean. I hope to hear from you again. Warm regards, Marsha

My wife son and I just loved the stay. We set up the couch bed and had plenty of room. We enjoyed the view of the Atlantic Ocean about 600 ft to ocean edge, sun rises, deck overlooking ocean ave. We walked every where, joes stone crab, government cut where big ships from biscayne bay enter Atlantic, along ocean age. Then there’s five star accommodations and great staff. Thank you Marsha

Stayed over the Easter long weekend with my family. The location is perfect, close to everything and away from the din and bustle for some quietness. Marsha’s condominium is a gem, immaculately maintained and large enough for a couple or with two small kids. Will not hesitate to book back when we return to sunny Miami!
