So, here's where it starts to get tricky. If you're thinking of moving to View Park-Windsor Hills then you need to be prepared to pay for it. This is a popular and expensive part of one of the most expensive cities and states in the US, so you're not going to get away with dirt cheap rent around here. The good news, however, is that both houses and apartments are readily available. Rental apartments and house rentals are easy enough to find, although at a heavy price, so expect to not only have to put up a big first month's rent, but also a sizeable security deposit in order to secure a new home. If you're looking for a house to rent in View Park-Windsor Hills, expect this to be even larger, with more bedrooms equaling the higher prices. On the plus side, vacancy rates aren't as bad as you might expect for a nice area of a big city like LA, so finding appropriate housing won't be impossible. Just make sure you start looking early to avoid disappointment.
The CDP has two neighborhoods to check out, so it's worth having a cruise around the area to see which appeals to you. Realistically, both are similar, offering the same benefits and drawbacks. Of the latter is the area's relatively poor WalkScore of 38, meaning you're going to need a car for most errands in either neighborhood.
View Park: View Park has little in the way of amenities, but it is a cozy area where you can get to know your neighbors at local activities.
Windsor Hills: Restaurants found here, down W Slauson Avenue, include Yee's Chinese Food, Orleans and York Deli, and Sachi Teriyaki House. A few more shops are to be found as well, and there are a couple of parks here: Norman O. Houston Park in the north, and Ladera Park in the south.
View Park-Windsor Hills is one of dozens of CDP's in LA, but you'll find few areas of greater affluence and wealth. People here tend to travel Downtown or towards other areas of LA for work where they can earn a decent packet, and that obviously pushes up the average cost of housing in the area. Any rental property you find in this area is likely to set you back a bit. The CDP itself is very much a haven for housing, full of nice houses and apartments, with little more than a few token restaurants and shops to explore. But, with all of the great suburbs of LA on your doorstep, does this really matter? Probably not, and with easy travel links via road and rail to all areas of the wider city limits, you'll have the entire world at your fingertips, with a cozy, comfortable (if fairly expensive!) home right in the middle of it.
