Hello, you've probably heard this a 10000 times before. But im a student on work&travel program, coming in Santa Monica on June 8th. Was searching on google a lot before i post here, anyway can anyone suggest some website or something that can help me find an apartment not a luxury one in Santa Monica. We are around 5-6 people so we are looking for 2-3 bedroom apartment or house or anything that is not over 2500$(i hope that is not too low). But please dont suggest me website like rent, apartments, westside rentals because cant find anything normal there. Forgot to mention that we will stay around 3 1/2 months there so not looking for long term lease apartments. Also wanted to ask is it hard to find a job there.

Thanks a lot.

What do you mean by "normal"? Those are the sites most people use unless they know someone or happend to see a FOR RENT sign. Padmapper.com is also a good one.

My daughter got her first place using Westside Rentals and her second one using craigslist so if you honestly can't find what you are looking for it probably doesn't exist. The fact that you want a short term thing is what's going to be a problem. You may be better off in a cheap motel or something.

And yes it's hard to find a job. Good luck.

By normal i mean not luxury apartments furnished with stuff that pump up the price. If you want to contact a menager from ad from westside rentals you need to pay sign up fee and stuff like that. I tried on craiglist by every response i got was "Hello, im on missionary mission blabla" wich is scam so i gave up. Ill try that one that you suggested padmapper.

Thanks.

On craigslist look under sublets. It's fairly easy to spot a scam.
