↑ Two bedrooms, one bathroom, and a garage (to park in or store your junk—you decide) are all part of the deal when you lease this groundfloor unit in Beverly Grove. There're in-unit laundry facilities, a chandelier, and a formal dining room for all that entertaining you do, and wood floors and recessed lighting in every room, too. It's also about a five minute walk from the Grove. All of this is going to cost you $2,650 a month.
↑ Oh, the Valley. Always having an adorable house for the price of a mere apartment over the hill. This time, it's a two-bedroom, two-bathroom in Valley Glen measuring about 1,500 square feet. Did we mention there's a pool? And a home office space with an outside entry so your clients don't have to walk through your bedroom? It's yours for $2,600 a month.
↑ Are you ready for the "epitome of the Hollywood lifestyle"? Further, did you know that amounted to a one-bedroom, one-bathroom on Franklin? This pet-friendly unit in Hollywood is about 800 square feet, and comes with access to rooftop hang-out areas and a pool and jacuzzi in the central courtyard. It's got newish appliances (including a washer/dryer) and a pretty big closet in the bedroom. Rent will set you back $2,580 a month.
↑ Yes, this is a $2,500 one-bedroom apartment. It's also pretty much in the Pacific Ocean. Nothing's brand new here except the hardwood floors, but the unit's got plenty of storage, and the building has a rooftop deck and a pool. The unit comes with gated parking, which is lifesaving in Santa Monica. That rent again is $2,500.
↑ The listing for this top-floor condo in the Monterey Hills section of Montecito Heights declares itself "not suitable for children." Perhaps it's all that marble in the bathroom? The unit was recently remodeled by its owner, so yes, that green master bedroom is intentional. There are no pictures of the living room or kitchen, but the incredibly detailed listing tells us that the living room has a "leather couch, 40 inch flat TV, working fireplace and vaulted ceilings," and that the kitchen, which has granite countertops and floors, is "fully stocked with all necessary equipment." Utilities and two parking space are included in the rent, which is $2,600.
