Beau on Bundy, a ViveLA community, is a 16-unit building located blocks away from the epicenter of three of the most desirable neighborhoods in Los Angeles County -- Santa Monica, Brentwood, and the Westside. Due to its ideal location and walkability, residents enjoy unparalleled access to a wide variety of employment, entertainment, and cultural experiences that few other neighborhoods in Los Angeles can match. The Westside offers a plethora of history and culture that attract thousands annually. Most notably The Getty, situated atop the Santa Monica Mountains in West Los Angeles, features a collection of Western art from the Middles Ages through present day. Not far away in Malibu, the Getty Villa is dedicated to the arts and cultures of ancient Greece, Rome, and Etruria. Los Angeles' reputation as a world-class restaurant city starts with the Westside as markets such as Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, and West Los Angeles attract the top chefs and restaurants famous for their exquisite cuisine and premier service. West Los Angeles' top restaurants include celebrity favorite Katsuya, Hillstone's Bandera, Toscana, Sugar fish, and Tavern, which garnered a visit from President Obama in 2011. In addition to fine dining venues, the Westside is famous for offering al fresco dining experiences, boutique gourmet food shops, and relaxing cafes.

What to keep in mind when looking for apartments with move-in specials in Santa Monica, CA

Move-in specials offer an enticing incentive to Santa Monica apartment renters looking to save. However, it’s important to ask about any stipulations to the move-in specials. A free month’s rent may only apply to specific apartment floors or basic amenities instead of the apartment you really want.

Other move-in specials might include a lowered or no security deposit option. Keep in mind the lack of security deposit means you are responsible for damage when moving out.

No application fees are also popular move-in specials, which will immediately put more money back in your pocket.

Santa Monica apartments are more likely to offer move-in specials during an off-season like winter when fewer people are moving. You may be able to negotiate your own special like free parking for a year in the paid garage.
