A Lovely holiday...but...
A Lovely holiday...but...
The condo we rented was absolutely gorgeous! We most definitely would go back and rent the same condo again. It was beautifully maintained and clean and fresh. All the dishes , glasses etc. were lovely and new. The owner was very helpful and informative right up until we left for our holiday, she couldn't have been more gracious. The location was superb,across from the park and the beach. Shops and restaurants all around, a Walgreens and liquor store around the corner, no need for a car at all. The staff at the hotel were all very helpful from the doorman to the cleaning staff, all were very cheerful and all did their respective jobs well. There is a lovely Italian restaurant right at the front of the hotel and again the staff were very friendly and gracious and more so because we were guests of the Bentley, they were so welcoming every time they saw us. If there was one thing we want to complain about,it's to do with the renovations.Mostly it was okay,it didn't really interfere with our holiday....for a few days. But then we were awakened every morning with drilling, and hammering and so on coming from the pool area and sundeck which was directly above our heads as we were on the top floor and the pool was on the roof. Then ,for a few days we couldn't even sit on our balcony because there was so much dust and debris flying on top of us from the roof. When we came out into the hallway, there was a lot of debris right in front of our door , small stones and bits of marble everywhere. So we had to be very careful not to step on it, and it stayed that way for a couple of days before some one cleaned it up. So apart from the danger of stepping on something we were always tracking that dirt and dust into our condo. Not having the pool at our disposal was a real let down, and even though the hotel provided guests use of the pool next door it was still disappointing. For us most especially, because we took my mother there to celebrate her 85 th birthday. We chose the Bentley for all the a fore mentioned reasons but we specifically chose that particular condo for the convenience it's proximity to the pool and deck, would have been for my mother who walks with a cane, to be able to go to the room to rest or use the washroom or have a lay down out of the sun. We realize that renovations are necessary of course,but that was our time there and as much as the hotel was doing it to enhance our experience ..in the future..it was most annoying for us in the present.

Owner response: Hi Toni, Thank you very much for taking the time to write such a thorough review of your stay in my condo at The Bentley. I'm glad that you enjoyed my condo and it's many special attributes. We spoke for a couple of months after you decided to reserve your vacation with me and since I knew that it was going to be a special event for you and your husband and mother, I called you in October when I heard what was happening at The Bentley to notify you of the renovations and offered to give you a full refund of your funds if you wanted to cancel. You were very pleasant and decided to keep the reservation. I'm sorry that it was so uncomfortable for you and especially your mother and hope you do come back when everything is finished and you can enjoy the balcony and pool. Please accept my sincere apology. I do hope your mother was able to enjoy some South Beach sunshine on her birthday. Marsha

The dream little vacation came and went. I cannot close this chapter without writing my review, because there are many people out there, who are looking for something special, yet it is time consuming process and not everyone can afford to do this. I stayed at Marsha's condo at Bentley hotel, located in the best spot of famous Ocean Drive. Marsha attended to the entire process of me booking my vacation, replying to all my questions in a very prompt manner, not only e-mailing but also through phone calls. Thank you Marsha for your excellent service in every aspect! The condo is located only steps away from the beach. It has the most beautiful view. It greeted me in impeccable condition, with a very nice decor. The living room opens onto the amazing colours of the ocean, depending on the time of the day, a large balcony off it, giving you the pleasure of full morning sun and a place to spend your time in the privacy of your place any time of the day, relaxing or having meals/ snacks, if you choose to make a use of the fully equipped kitchen with the most updated look in stainless steel and granite. At night a joy of slipping into the most comfortable bed and pillows with snow white bed linen. Yes, there is also a bedroom TV for those, who like watching it in bed. You wake up fully rested and ready for another day. Stepping outside you submerge yourself in South Beach life along Ocean Dr. with a galore of restaurants inviting you for a meal with mojitos and background music of guitar, saxophone, you name it.The park across the street invites you for beautiful walks. Walking distance to awesome shopping experience on Lincoln Dr. or superb dining experience in Espanola Way. The rental of Marsha's condo gives you the use of recreational area of the hotel with a swimming pool and lovely terrace full of potted plants with the feel of garden surroundings and most spectacular view of the ocean and palm trees. There is no breakfast for the condo guests on the premises of hotel, but you can get your groceries in the "Public"grocery store ( within walking distance) and make a use of the condo kitchen for your favourite food, or use one of many restaurants. Definitely a FIVE STAR review from me for Marsha's service, the condominium itself, and the location. The photos posted on the website exactly reflect the property. Thank you Marsha, I will definitely pass on my experience to my relatives and friends and will be back from much colder, sun deprived Canada..

Owner response: Hello again Eva! Thank you very much for your 5 star review. You certainly covered all of the great features of staying in my special condo suite at The Bentley. It is terrific that you had so many good things to say and that you were able to enjoy some of the South Beach fun and sun before returning to your home. Please visit again. Warm regard, Marsha
Just the best place to stay in South Beach

This was the second time that my wife and I had stayed in Marsha's beautiful Condo. The unit itself is very well equipped and clean and has a wonderful balcony for enjoying a glass of wine whilst relaxing at the end of the day. The pool is literally steps away and from there you have a beautiful view along Ocean drive, the beach and the city behind you. You can also view cruise ships from the pool balcony. The Condo is very close to excellent places to eat and good size stores are also on your doorstep. The staff at reception are extremely helpful and I must give a specialmention to the bellman -just brilliant. We travel from Scotland and the Condo is a 'home from home'. We were fortunate enough to actually meet Marsha at the end of our visit and must add that she is a lovely lady who cannot do enough to ensure you have a lovely vacation. We will return

Owner response: Hello Graeme, It is a real pleasure to receive your review from Scotland! It's amazing that you have enjoyed staying in my condo suite twice and even reserved both of my suites for use by your daughter and new son in law. It was terrific meeting you and your wife and seeing her super South Beach suntan. I look forward to hearing from you again for your next visit to Ocean Drive. Thanks for the review! Marsha

I spent 5 nights in Marsha's condo in South beach and it was perfect. I was in Miami for work and it was perfect spot. There were 2 adults staying in the condo. I had the bedroom and she had the pullout couch. It was very clean and comfortable and even though it was located above a restaurant it was not too noisy. The pictures reflect it accurately. It is not large but comfortable for a couple and a child. The view is beautiful. I would stay here again.

Owner response: Dear Kathleen, Once again a guest of mine Made My Day! Thanks so much for your great review of my condo suite. From our previous correspondence, I know that you are in the bathing suit industry and the fact that you found my condo to be comfortable and perfect for your needs while you were in South Beach conducting business really makes me very happy. Thanks for writing and I hope you think of me the next time you travel to South Beach for any reason. Enjoy the rest of the summer, Marsha
Pros: -Right across from the beach on Ocean Dr -Great View -Fits 3 comfortably (Me plus two other adults went) -In the middle of great locations -Great staff -Condo renter was extremely helpful Cons: -Hotel offers breakfast, but is not included for condo renters -Takes valet about 15mins+ to retrieve your car All in all, I recommend this suite and will definitely be back!

Owner response: Dear Reinaldo, Thank you very much for your many positive comments about me and my condo suite. I appreciate it very much! Upon your arrival at The Bentley your were informed by the receptionist that the hotel breakfast was not included free for guests who booked through a condo owner. When you called me, I apologized and said I had never mentioned a free breakfast and was sorry that you were disappointed. In addition to all of the extra taxes and fees the hotel charges, they also include a "resort fee" that covers the breakfast. I believe you and I came to an understanding and I am so pleased that you will stay with me in the future. Thanks again for writing! Marsha
Really nice condo and great location
Really nice condo and great location
We stayed in 502 for a weekend in early May. The location was great. Easy to walk to the beach, deli around the corner was great, and there is a large drugstore to buy basics for the fridge. We parked the car on Friday and picked it up Sunday at 5. The condo management were great - I mentioned the pool was low on Friday and Saturday it was filled. There is a great changing room behind the front desk. From other reviews, the issue about going into the restaurant to get to the hotel is a non-issue. South Beach is a different place entirely with how the restaurants 'hawk' their wares. We would certainly stay here again. It was much better than staying in a hotel room.

It's beneficial to know that the management takes care of all of my guests because I do NOT use any off-site managers, cleaners or inferior products in my condo. I'm also glad to know that you took advantage of the valet parking that is available at a reasonable rate. I look forward to having you stay in my condo suite in the future! You sure seem to know about South Beach. Thanks again, Marsha
More than we hoped for !
More than we hoped for !
My wife and I had been planning this trip for 4-5 months. Original plans were for a southern Caribbean cruise for 10 days departing out of Ft. Lauderdale in April. The lure of Florida started to take over and our plans expanded to include a trip to Key West and to South Beach, Miami upon our disembarkation from the cruise. Once our plans were finalized we were booked for one night in Key West and the remaining 4 nights in SoBe before returning to Toronto. I researched many different condos and other types of accommodations in South Beach for months before striking gold. This unit is the ultimate in location and amenities for SoBe. We had rented a car for the trip to Key West and returned it immediately upon arrival in SoBe. You do not need a car when staying here. Everything is within easy walking distance - the beach, groceries, liquor, restaurants (all types), shopping. There are plenty of cabs cruising out front if you feel a little lazy and want to try a restaurant or club but don't feel like walking. I booked this unit directly through the owner - Marsha. She is great! A busy professional but always available to answer my numerous and random emails. Marsha was patient with me as this was my first time booking a place this way. Everything with the booking went well...all online, fast and efficient. The condo itself - on the top floor (5th) is perfect. The balcony made it for me. Overlooking Ocean Dr.,Lummus Park, the beach and ocean. It doesn't get any better. The pool and terrace are 20 steps and one flight of steps away from the front door. Great for going back and forth from the pool to the condo. The unit had it all and the bed was the perfect way to end the day - no aches or pains in the morning for me or my wife. The bathroom was well stocked with towels, soaps, lotion and potions and the linens for the bed were very nice. The only hiccup we had was with Housekeeping. They forgot us on Thursday and came Friday (and were very thorough). If you like walking you won't be disappointed. We walked the ocean boardwalk south to the marina and back. The scenery is what Miami is known for. Make sure you get up to Lincoln Str and the shopping district. We are looking forward to going back to in November. I think we have really found "our spot" when looking at Florida. We travel 2 - 3 times a year and we can't wait to go back. Thanks Marsha ! G PS: go Leafs go!

Owner response: Hey Gary, Thanks for your fabulous review! It was always a great pleasure emailing back & forth with you about your first trip to South Beach. You sure did describe my condo suite and it's special features with precision. I look forward to working with you again and please book early for next November. (Sorry about your beloved Toronto Maple Leafs Hockey Team, I was cheering for your team until the end!) Thanks again, Marsha
This is a gorgeous condo with a spectacular view of the beach and a fantastic location. The service at the Bentley was exceptional, and the condo provided everything we needed. I would highly recommend this property to anybody who would like to stay in South Beach. It is the perfect getaway destination. The owner went out of her way to provide information to us promptly and made the transaction seamless.

My husband and I were charmed by the apartment the moment we walked into it. It has a light, airy feel, and the balcony looking to the ocean is wonderful! We enjoyed the quick access to the pool area. It was so comfortable that we often didn't go out until afternoon. An especially nice feature is that the apartment is in a hotel with all the amenities, including help with luggage from the valet parking and someone on the desk who is knowledgeable about the area. The kitchen has all the right equipment, including a very large refrigerator and a dish washer. I always appreciate wifi when I'm traveling, and it was very easy to access in the apartment. The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful, starting with the valet parking, which we consider a very big plus. Taxis are very easy to flag down in South Beach, although we liked having our car for shopping and sightseeing. We will definitely book this apartment again. We ate in the apartment two nights, ordering delivery the first time from a fabulous Cuban restaurant Havana 1957 and picking up dinner from Whole Foods the second time. The apartment is conveniently located near many restaurants. Our favorite afternoon treat was to go over to Monty's (300 Alton Road) during happy hour for stone crabs (order the jumbo). Our favorite Italian restaurant is Osteria del Teatro at Washington and 14th Street. We like good wine, and drove directly from the airport north to Total Wines to pick up our wine for the week (many restaurants have a corkage fee policy). There is a Walgreens conveniently located around the corner on 5th Street. We always buy those pesky liquids and gels when we arrive so as to use only carry on. A word of advice regarding the GPS: be sure to enter the city as Miami Beach or you're likely to end up at a similar address on Key Biscayne!!! And you don't want to miss a minute of your vacation driving around!
