Valley Village apartments are an affordable alternative to Studio City rentals with many of the same location and lifestyle benefits. Most housing here is renter occupied and you’ll be able to choose from a vast assortment of new luxury apartments, older apartment buildings, and ranch- and Spanish-style single-family homes. Renting in Valley Village has a lot of the appeal of renting in urban Los Angeles neighborhoods, but with the added convenience of suburban amenities like dedicated parking and larger floor plans.
Those renting in southern Valley Village will enjoy easy access to three major freeways as well as the option to skip the freeway and take smaller roads to Studio City or Ventura Boulevard shops and restaurants. Students may prefer renting on Burbank Boulevard near Los Angeles Valley College. Wherever you choose to rent, Neighborhood Council Valley Village (NCVV) does a lot to keep the neighborhood clean and safe. Current renters enjoy being able to walk their dogs on clean, tree-lined streets or bike to nearby public transit.
Although Valley Village is largely residential, a strong presence from local businesses means there’s plenty to do. Popular local restaurants like Texas Best BBQ, Bar One Tap Room, and SteamPunk CoffeeBar & Kitchen line Burbank Blvd and guarantee that you can have a fun night out without leaving the valley. For groceries, there’s a Gelson’s Market on Laurel Canyon Blvd just off the 101, or you can travel to nearby Sherman Village to shop at Ralphs or Whole Foods. Valley Village is just north of Ventura Boulevard so you’re never too far from an almost endless selection of shops, restaurants, and practical amenities like gyms, salons, and bigger retail stores. For culture plus cocktails, head just minutes east to the renewed NoHo Arts District in North Hollywood. NoHo is home to dozens of theaters, galleries, cafes, and bars so there’s a good chance you’ll catch something new-to-you happening there.
Valley Village renters have easy transit access via NoHo’s North Hollywood Station, with Orange Line buses running north to Warner Center in the valley and Red Line subways heading to downtown LA. There aren’t any parks within the borders of this neighborhood, but the North Hollywood Park and Recreation Center are popular places for local residents to run, play sports, and feed the squirrels. The park is a great snapshot of the diverse community as long-time valley locals, new California transplants, and NoHo artists all share the same community spaces.
