City Guide
Playa Del Rey, Los Angeles
Playa del Rey is the true definition of a beach town where you can enjoy fun in the sun. Whether you’re a student at Loyola Marymount looking for a place to live and party with your friends or you prefer a quieter lifestyle that includes plenty of beach walks, Playa del Rey has amazing ocean views and a cool, laidback vibe.

This area was once the place where many movie stars had beachfront homes and those in the know appreciated it as one of the best surfing spots in L.A. That all changed when LAX was built in the 1960s. Today people still love Playa del Rey for its comfortable, welcoming atmosphere, where you’ll see your friendly neighbors at the farmer’s market or watching the sunset from the beach.

Even though Playa del Rey has a secluded feel, living here still gives easy commuting access via the Pacific Coast Highway, the 405, Highway 90, and from LAX. There’s also plenty to do to stay busy when you live here. The quaint downtown area is walkable and has fun places to hang out, such as Tanner’s Coffee Co. and Cantalini’s Salerno Beach Restaurant, where you can get fresh seafood and great Italian food.

The difficulty of finding an apartment for rent in Playa del Rey depends a lot on how many bedrooms you need. One-bedroom apartments are usually available with limited notice, but vacant two-bedroom and three-bedroom units are less common, and you may need to be on a short waiting list. There’s a large variety of housing types for rent in Playa del Rey, from renovated older apartments and luxury newer units to condos and charming bungalows.  

Life in Playa del Rey (or PdR, as the locals call it) is especially good to those who love to be active. Bikers and joggers enjoy the paths that run along the beach. Nature lovers appreciate the Ballona Wetlands, an ecological preserve where it feels like the city is worlds away. Health and wellness are popular pursuits here, which you’ll notice in the fact that many apartment buildings are completely smoke-free. There’s also a lot of acceptance for alternative medicine in the community, and you can find practitioners of a variety of treatments, from acupuncture to reiki. Yoga is also very popular here, and you can find a number of yoga studios and private trainers.

When you’re ready to look for an apartment for rent in Playa del Rey, make sure you come prepared with the usual credentials most landlords want to see, like a steady employment history, good rental references, and an income at least three times the rent. Upscale amenities such as granite countertops and stainless steel appliances are standard, and most communities have pools and onsite fitness centers for use. You may not find many discounts on apartment rent in Playa del Rey, but you’ll get a great quality of life in exchange for premium rent prices.

Some apartment communities are pet-friendly but are each highly variable in which pets they accept and how many. Pet deposits are extra and can be higher than average. Additional monthly pet rent is also common. Many communities have breed-specific rules or only allow cats. Make sure to ask all these questions up front so that you and your furry friend will end up at the best home for you both.

A quiet beach community makes you feel like the bustle of Los Angeles is far off. When you want to retreat to a comfortable place to call home, you’ll be happy you chose Playa del Rey.
