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.

I have booked through VRBO many times and all have been good, but this was EXCEPTIONAL!! First off, Marsha was a pleasure to deal with. Secondly, I have been to Southbeach numerous times, and this condo by far has it all. Spectacular view, beautifully decorated, clean, lovely pool and sun deck, and a wonderful hotel staff. Marsha, thank you so much for making our Christmas 2016 vacation one of the best. We look forward to returning!

Owner's Response: Happy New Year Sally, Thanks for your very special 5 star review. It was always a pleasure corresponding with you during the past few months while you planned your South Beach holiday in my top floor condo suite #500. Even though people see the photos and relate to me, I think they are still surprised and impressed when they arrive and actually see my condo and find out that I am the only condo owner that does not use any "off site managers or cleaners or inferior services" because The Bentley staff takes total care of my guests during their stay. I'm so happy you enjoyed your vacation. I have many repeat guests, please plan to reserve again early. I'd love to have you stay with me again! Regards, Marsha

What a View

  • 5 of 5

This lovely condo is in the heart of SOBE. The hotel with which it is associated, the Bentley, took great care of us. The view from the large balcony was perfect - the unit had everything to make our stay great! Super clean, too! Will return next year.

Owner's Response: Hi Sharon & Mitch, Thanks for your 5 star review! When you sent me a text on your arrival saying that you loved the view and my condo, I was thrilled to hear from you. Also thanks for making other travelers aware that I do not use any "off site" managers or cleaners and that I am the only owner in The Bentley that has the hotel staff take personal care of my guests. I look forward to hearing from you in the future. Happy holidays! Marsha

Fabulous Ocean View Condo!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I went for our 15th anniversary, and this condo could not have been a more perfect place to celebrate. This was the second time I stayed in one of Marsha's condos. The first time was a girls weekend! Top floor facing the ocean and close to everything that we could possibly want. Restaurants, amazing nightlife, and the Beach.

I would definitely recommend this place to stay, because I will be coming back again!

Owner's Response: Hi Renee! Thank you so much for your short and sweet 5 star review of your anniversary stay in my top floor condo suite #500. It made me feel great that you reserved two South Beach holidays through me. One with your girlfriends and a special weekend with your husband. I have many repeat guests and I especially look forward to hearing from you in the future. Thanks again for writing. Warm regards, Marsha

Perfect location, perfect weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Marsha's condo for a weekend in October. We could not have asked for a better location or view. The unit is beautifully furnished and extremely comfortable too. I would absolutely love to stay here again on my next trip to Miami.

The only criticisms that we had were that there were several lights burnt out in the kitchen and bathroom which made it a bit dark. And we cooked many of our own meals - not having a non-stick pan was a bit of a downer. But these were really minor issues. Such a great place!

Owner's Response: Hi Melinda, Thank you for writing your 5 star review. I am so happy that you want to return to my condo suite on your next stay in South Beach. I look forward to having you back! I wish you had called me about the burned out light bulbs during your stay. I would have been delighted (pun intended) to fix the situation. Because I am the only owner on VRBO that has the staff at The Bentley take total care of my guests, the bulbs would have been changed right away for you if you had called me or notified the front desk yourself. Also, as noted in the review just prior to yours, I constantly make changes in my condo and am planning to install an additional ceiling light in the kitchen area when I stay in my condo next month. I will also research what might have happened to my non stick skillet and will replace it, Thanks again. Warm regards, Marsha

Easily the best place on Ocean Drive

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at Marsha's condo several times and each time it has been fantastic. She consistently has upgrades being made and it's always spotless. The balcony is where we spent most of our time. There are very few Ocean Front balcony's on Ocean Drive so being able to book this excellent condo always makes the trip special. Sunrise from the balcony is wonderful, and then in the afternoon evening it is a great spot to overlook Ocean Drive and reflect on the day. The condo is located in a great spot as it is easily accessible to some great restaurants (Prime 112, Prime Italian, Smith & Wollensky's, etc.) Not only is the condo fantastic, but working with Marsha is an absolute pleasure. Thank You Marsha for your hospitality and the use of your condo. Can't wait to book this condo again.

Owner's Response: Hello again Dusty, You are a terrific guest and I enjoy having you stay in my condo! Your 5 star review means so much to me because you can reserve any place to stay while on your South Beach holiday and you always choose my top floor condo #500 with the best private balcony in the Art Deco beach area of Ocean Drive. Please hurry back. You are welcome anytime. It is a pleasure to hear from you. I hope you continue to have many great adventures until your next stay in my condo suite. Warm regards, Marsha

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our four day stay in the very well located Bentley condo, which is well suited for a couple with younger children. World-famous Miami Beach is across the street, and other locations are easy to reach - we travelled mostly with Uber. Excellent breakfast and dinner options in the streets behind Ocean drive for better value for money, but still on walking distance.

The Bentley hotel personnel is genuinly friendly and very accomodating. What is not mentioned in the announcement is that for an additional 25$ a day, we had breakfast and complementary drinks at happy hour time between 4 and 6 pm for two. There is also a table tennis and chess board in the patio of the hotel. Furthermore, the hotel offers free transport on south beach with an electric golf cart, to be ordered well in advance as there is only one driver servicing three hotels. Only positive surprises...

Marcha is a very reactive and reliable owner and it was very easy to plan our stay with her. We have encountered no problems whatsoever and only wish we could have stayed longer...

Owner's Response: Hi Marc, Thank you for your 5 star review and for being a perfect guest with your wife and 2 children in my condo suite #500. I know you were in the US for a month long holiday and South Beach was your final stop. I'm so glad you chose to reserve my condo so that everything went very smoothly while you enjoyed Miami Beach and it's many charms. Thank you for mentioning so many highlights of your stay to let other travelers know how you enjoyed your stay and how cordially you were treated by The Bentley staff who take care of my guests for me. I hope you will enjoy your memories of the US for years to come. Please contact me if you are ever returning to South Beach in the future. Regards, Marsha
