↑ This 1,007-square-foot one-bedroom in the Cahuenga Pass has very unexpected, insane closets in the master bedroom. There's gated parking, two pools, and the communal laundry is next door. The unit also has a balcony, plantation shutters, and a dishwasher. There are no pets allowed, though. Rent is $2,000.
↑ Cool view, apartment. This one-bedroom in a gated, newer complex in Old Town Pasadena boasts "full-sized washer/dryer units" in the apartment, granite countertops, vinyl "wood looking" floors, and large closets. Communal amenities include a rooftop terrace with a barbecue area and side-by-side parking in an underground garage. This place is pet-friendly, and rent is $2,095.
↑ This upstairs unit in Fairfax has two bedrooms, one bathroom, and hardwood floors. The kitchen and bathroom are tiled, and there are washer/dryer hook-ups, on the off-chance you have a spare of each. The apartment is "about 1000 sqft" with "LOTS of charm and original character," plus one parking space. Rent is $2,000.
↑ A 1,065-square-foot loft on the third floor of the Hellman Building in Downtown's Historic Core that not only takes pets but does not charge a deposit or "pet rent"? It's almost too good to be true. Parking does cost extra (it ranges from $150 to $300 a month). Water, gas, and trash collection are included in the rent, which is $2,150.
↑ Located just up the block from Westwood Village's shops and eateries, this one-bedroom condo has key-card access to the complex, a barbecue area, a balcony, and air conditioning. The building has a pool and a gym. It's all very collegiate. Rent is $2,100.
