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.

Owner's Response: Hi Andreas, Thank you very much for your 5 star review. You and I had a big laugh after it appeared and I emailed you that you wrote that my wonderful private balcony was AWFUL. You said that you meant to write "awesome" but now hoped English reading guests would be able to figure it out. No problem! I know that you and your wife were traveling the U.S. and arrived from San Francisco to enjoy the weather and excitement of South Beach and Ocean Drive from my top floor condo. I really appreciate all of the positive and enthusiastic comments you wrote about my condo and the fact that you would stay with me again in the future. Thanks again. Warm regards, Marsha

Nice room in great location

  • 4 of 5

This one bedroom was very clean and nicely decorated. It was in a great location - across from the beach, shopping and great restaurants all within walking distance. Rooftop pool and sundeck were really nice and a great way to relax and view both the ocean and the active street life below.

Our main complaint was that the flagpoles on the roof right above constantly clang in the ocean breeze, making it nearly impossible to sleep when it is windy (which is most of the time). The hotel seemed aware of this but didn't really do anything to help it. A minor complaint was that we were not told about the shuttle service until check out - a nice service we would definitely have used had we known about it

Other than that, the property was great and we would return if flag noise was addressed.

Owner's Response: (7/1/17 update. Great news! the flag poles on the roof top terrace have been refitted for quiet comfort!) Hi Karyn, Thank you for your review of all of great features of my personal top floor condo suite and it's A+ location in the heart of South Beach. It makes me happy that you found everything inside to be satisfactory to you. I have personally mentioned the flags and flag poles to the hotel management company and I sure hope they are planning to do something about their annoyance. I'm glad you mentioned it to them yourself. I hope you do come back and stay with me in the future. I'll keep you posted concerning the flags. Regards, Marsha

Poor timing on my part, but the condo is a great place

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay, the condo was clean and had a great view! Perfect location, beach, restaurants & night life all within walking distance. Booked our trip around Astros' Spring Training, but completely forgot it was spring break. Getting to the condo in the evenings took time because of the traffic, but that was just a minor setback. Actually we enjoyed taking in all of the night life below us while we sipped scotch on the balcony. I would definitely come back, just not during spring break.

Owner's Response: Hi Brian, Thank you so much for reserving my top floor condo suite #500 for your short trip with your Dad to see the Astros Spring Training. I very much appreciate you taking the time to write your 5 star review and mentioning how much you enjoyed sitting on my balcony and watching the night life taking place on Ocean Drive. It's always a sight to see! I hope you return again in the future. GO Astros! Marsha
