We’ll kick things off with a crisply remodeled duplex in hip Silver Lake. The light-filled unit measures 700 square feet and holds one bathroom and two bedrooms (a master and a second bedroom that the listing acknowledges is “small”), plus a loft accessed by a built-in ladder. It’s renting for $3,150.

You can get a lot more space in centrally-located Mid-City. That’s where you’ll find this handsome old Craftsman home that holds two bedrooms and one and a half baths in 1,674 square feet. There’s a backyard and a back house with a full bathroom, but space isn’t the only perk. The house sports it original hardwood floors, built-ins, and moldings. It’s renting for $3,195.

In breezy Santa Monica, this “cottage style unit” is located just about a mile from the beach. It holds two bedrooms, one bathroom, and a kitchen that “opens up to a private vegetable garden and patio area with outdoor string lights.” Rent here is $3,250.

If you love old spaces, here’s another contender, a charming unit in a Spanish-style building in idyllic Beachwood Canyon. The listing is sparse, but, as the photos show, the two-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment is not. It’s embellished with lots of colorful tilework, from the fireplace to the shower. The 1,000-square-foot unit is renting for $3,200.

For a big city vibe, head to Downtown LA. A brick-clad unit with soaring ceilings and big windows is available in the Pan American Lofts at the corner of Broadway and Third Street, steps from Grand Central Market, MOCA, and Angels Flight. This unit measures 910 square feet and features a “fabulous spiral staircase leading to a second level sleeping loft and finally a rooftop terrace.” It’s renting for $3,195.
