City GuideChula Vista

If you like lemonade, you're going to love Chula Vista, the "Lemon Capital of the World"! For those who prefer to avoid puckering, no worries — Chula Vista also means “beautiful view” in Spanish, and, wow, does it deliver! Surrounded by mountains on the east and nestled against the Pacific Ocean to the west, this gem has plenty of options for your next apartment rental.

Having trouble with Craigslist Chula Vista? Can't find that special apartment for rent on Apartment Finder or Zillow? Apartment List is here to help!

Tight Lips Sink Dream Digs

Finding the perfect area in Chula Vista can be difficult, especially when you consider the tight-lipped policy that most real estate brokers follow. Only people more akin to toads want to come across as racist or prejudice, and brokers are no different. While the brokers all follow strict policies to avoid discrimination, you can increase your chances of finding the perfect place by having a list of things you would like to find. Your list should include the following:

  • Preferred price tag.
  • Desired space.
  • Your family situation.
  • The things you look for in a neighborhood, such as restaurants, shops or nearby attractions.
A Rush Hour That Lets You…Rush

Chula Vista's city planners actually did their job when it comes to traffic management. The average commute from most neighborhoods is 30 minutes. You can thank the six-lane boulevards, Interstate 5, Interstate 805, California 54, and California 125. Did we mention the two rail services and the San Diego Trolley? Those are pretty sweet too. The trolley actually provides light rail through Chula Vista.

West Side Story Meets West Coast

While your broker may not admit it, many residents will tell you the line drawn in Chula Vista is the 805, with the neighborhoods on the West Side being something you might see on an after-school special.

The West Side does have two attractive benefits though: the beach and the price. Most rentals are just a short drive from the coast, and it's possible to find ocean-view rentals. You can also find an inexpensive rental in the West Side, sometimes called the Old Side, but you'll need to take extra precautions.

Streets Paved of Gold

Okay, so you won't find any roads paved with precious metal, but you'll see plenty of million dollar homes on the East Side. The newer development in this area will put you in communities where most residents have been married for more than 15 years and have kids under the age of 18. Welcome to the burbs, where a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom rental will cost you around $2,300 per month.

Several of the neighborhoods, such as Bonita Long Canyon and Lynwood Hills, provide easy access to the natural activities in Chula Vista. Hike, bike or hit the water. Communities like Eastlake actually border a nature preserve.

On the East Side, most apartments will cost you the same price as a single-family house over on the West Side. You can find studio apartments in areas like Otay Ranch for under $1,000 per month.

Chula Vista – Land of Opportunity

Sure, Chula Vista has its problems. It's like any other city out there. Some areas are great, others less desirable. If you fall into a lower-income bracket, consider finding an affordable rental complex. Most of these will be in the West Side, but you can find a few east of 805. The qualifications for the complexes vary from one to the next, so contact several to get an idea of what your price range can offer.

If this option will help you find the right place to live in Chula Vista, plan extra time for your search. The better options tend to have more competition, and you may have more steps to complete during the application process than traditional renters.

Nosey Neighbors Know All

Don't be afraid to talk to potential neighbors or local businesses before you sign the lease. Mention your concerns to locals and you’ll most likely get an honest response. It's better to have people laugh at you for a mistaken first impression rather than learning it was correct after you move into a building.

Use your own detective skills, too. After all, you may prefer to live in an area where siding covers housing rather than creative graffiti. If you see families out for walks or people jogging, you should feel confident that you're moving into a good area.

Over 230,000 people call Chula Vista home. The area has everything from one extreme to the next, but what city doesn't? By knowing what you prefer to have in a rental apartment and neighborhood, you can find the right location. So gather that list we mentioned earlier and prepare yourself for some awesome views and great lemonade. Your new apartment awaits!
