About BJ Martin

Growing up in Orange County my life long dream was to live at the beach. Found this perfect little beach place with very close access to major arteries and all things beach, sand and seaside life!

BJ Martin purchased this condo in 1992

Why BJ Martin chose Newport Beach

This is family friendly neighborhood with lots of pride of ownership. 50% owner residents live on 30th street to the sand.

Great location for any type of stay!

  • 5 of 5

BJ was an excellent host! She was readily available by phone if we needed anything and was just a pleasure to be around. The house is the perfect distance from the beach, so you dont have people walking by constantly but it takes less than five minutes to get to the sand. There are plenty of restaurants, grocery stores and coffee shops (Alta coffee was amazing). Seven of us fit comfortably with an air mattress.

The only hangup was that although there are two showers, two people can't shower at the same time or one of the showers loses all pressure. But we were able to stagger our time and it worked out just fine!

We will definitely be interested in staying again! Thank you!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind review -we're glad you had a a good time!! And, thanks for the heads up regarding use of the tankless hot water. We will certainly be more explicit in explaining operation, and less likely to allow last minute single adult additions over 6 adults to guests allowed, especially age 30+ single/moms in party mode. Party time/after beach -Friday-Saturday showers do sometimes tend to dilute the area water pressure a bit. There are actually 3 hot water showers including outside shower and, especially in our family area, very few, if any, problems with water pressure even with all three correctly operating at the same time.(even with the washer going)!! (-;. Always let your host know of any problems right away, like water pressure, when they ask- our goal is full enjoyment of the facilities!! We especially love family visitors, come back with your families!!

Wonderful vacation spot Newport Beach

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect in all aspect for a 3 day Holiday at the Beach. Location!Location!Location!

It was close to everything but not right on the main drag, Great eating places, close to Pavilions and came with Bikes to ride instead of renting everything.

It slept 6 well and had 2 bathrooms and a nice kitchen. My family came down for 1 day and wanted to rent it also. We will definitely be going back.

Perfect family vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing 10 day stay at this location. As other reviewers have commented, BJ was great! She was extremely accommodating. We had flown on a red eye from Alaska arriving at LAX at 6am and she made every effort to get us in as quickly as possible and offered us use of the bikes while we waited. It was very clean, a great location and only a block from the beach and market. I would highly recommend staying here and hopefully plan to return soon! Thanks BJ!

Couldnt have asked for more!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was wonderful.

House was just as pictured and described. Decorated so cute with bright colors. Everything was very clean. Felt very welcomed.

B.J. was extra nice, went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. Really liked B.J. SO sweet.

Would stay again anytime....

Defiantly would recommend staying here with your family or otherwise.

Everything was within walking distance, really convenient.

Welcoming place in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great but too short, time. BJ is such a lovely woman, makes you feel like family. The place was very clean (which is the most important for me) and beds very comfortable. Everything we needed and more was there. We love the location and didn't use once our rental car since everything is walkable distance. There is this little Coffee place called Alta that I would recommend; they have good gluten free options for breakfast, which I very much appreciated, and all kinds of organic coffee. I have to mention that the Wifi connection was working very well (not always the case from past experiences in other places) and being with a 16 and 17 year old kidz, it was crucial :). Hopefully, we'll go back to Newport and if we do, we will surely go back to BJ's place. Thanks BJ !
