Moving to Marina del Rey

Drive out of Los Angeles through Venice and you'll reach Marina del Rey. While it's just four miles from LAX, it's worlds away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Life moves more slowly here, and that's just how the handful of year-round residents like it. Don't be in a rush to do, well, anything. And that includes finding an apartment. Plus, when you consider how much of your income will go toward rent, you'll want to take plenty of time to tour different communities and their many amenities, then decide which is the right Marina del Rey apartment rental for you.

Neighborhoods in Marina del Rey

Marina del Rey is pretty small, so there are only two neighborhoods of note:

The Marina Peninsula: Along the peninsula surrounding the harbor, you'll find beach-style homes, many of them beachfront. Most of these are owner-occupied dwellings with at least three bedrooms. Small beach cottages sprinkled here and there may be available for rent on a month-to-month basis, but it'll take plenty of digging to uncover them.

The Marina: You can find plenty of high-rise apartments and condos here, along with shops and restaurants. Whatever home you choose, you'll get a great view of the pleasure crafts and smaller boats moored at the harbor below you.

Living in Marina del Rey

Laid back coastal living isn't even an option in Marina del Rey; it's the only way to function. Leave your stress on the Marina Freeway and relax in your own little strip of paradise in your rental apartment. Head to Burke Park to jog or Chace Park in the summer to listen to the free outdoor concerts held there. If you know a member of the California Yacht Club, don't miss the opportunity to visit the facility. The 90-year-old club is among the most exclusive in the country. You're more likely to visit Fisherman's Village, which brings the term quaint to a whole new level with its New England fishing village charm, complete with lighthouse, promenade and even a ferry that will take you to Catalina Island. It might cost an arm and a leg to live here, whether you choose one of the small one-bedroom apartments for rent or the larger luxury three-bedroom apartments, but you'll soon realize it's worth every penny.

Methodology - Recent Updates:

Data from private listing sites, including our own, tends to skew toward luxury apartments, which introduces sample bias when estimates are calculated directly from these listings. To address these limitations, we’ve recently made major updates to our methodology, which we believe have greatly improved the accuracy and reliability of our estimates.

Read more about our new methodology below, or see a more detailed post here.


Apartment List is committed to making our rent estimates the best and most accurate available. To do this, we start with reliable median rent statistics from the Census Bureau, then extrapolate them forward to the current month using a growth rate calculated from our listing data. In doing so, we use a same-unit analysis similar to Case-Shiller’s approach, comparing only units that are available across both time periods to provide an accurate picture of rent growth in cities across the country.

Our approach corrects for the sample bias inherent in other private sources, producing results that are much closer to statistics published by the Census Bureau and HUD. Our methodology also allows us to construct a picture of rent growth over an extended period of time, with estimates that are updated each month.

Read more about our methodology here.

About Rent Reports:

Apartment List publishes monthly reports on rental trends for hundreds of cities across the U.S. We intend these reports to be a source of reliable information that help renters and policymakers make sound decisions, and we invest significant time and effort in gathering and analyzing rent data. Our work is covered regularly by journalists across the country.

We are continuously working to improve our methodology and data, with the goal of providing renters with the information that they need to make the best decisions.
