Hi,
I have 3 corporate housing choices in Santa Monica to choose from and yes, I know my commute to Northridge will be horrific! (I just don't want to miss at least 3-6 months living in the area of Southern California I've always wanted to live in AND I will have some time to check out different areas to live in permanently, so I'm sure the commute will quickly change my mind about living in Santa Monica permanently!.) So, I can life in the 1900's on Ocean park (zip is 90405) or in the 2700's of Neilson Way or the 2200's of Colorado Ave. I really want to feel safe walking my (small) dog. All 3 say they are pet friendly.

Hi Lindasuedallas,

Sorry I can't answer your question regarding Santa Monica's areas. I've been to Santa Monica a few times and I just love it, though I'm not familiar with street names and stuff like that.

I have a question regarding your temporary housing. Where did you find these choices? The prices you post, what do they include and are they studios, one or two bedroom apartments? Is there a website that lists temporary housing. I'm relocating to L.A. next year, and I'm going to be living at temporary housing for about two months before moving in to an apartment, but I haven't found a good deal of temporary housing yet... any links?

Thanks!

Since you are going for the full-on Santa Monica experience, I would head for Neilson. You will be a block from the beach and the boardwalk and a block from Main Street, which has nice cafes and shops. People will wander about with surfboards. Your commute to Northridge will indeed be less than joyful, but if you can travel outside rush hour that will help greatly. Enjoy.

Default Temporary Housing - Oakwood Executive Housing

Hi,
I'm using the company that my new employer uses for temp housing, Oakwood. You can just go into their website and select the area you want and it will pull up a variety of options. I don't know what the Santa Monica one costs, but for comparison, a furnished 2 bedroom in Woodland Hills (an option I looked at) was $125/night. Good luck.

Linda

I agree that you should go with the Neilson Way location. Those are nice if it's the highrise complex I'm thinking of. Ask for an apartment with a view facing north. That way you can see the Santa Monica Mountains and up the coastline toward Malibu. You'll be right at the beach and close to Main Street which has a great, small neighborhood feel.

When you arrive, in addition to getting to Northridge by taking the 10 east to the 405 north to the 101 west, you might also try taking Pacific Coast Hwy to Topanga Canyon and cutting through the mountains as an alternate route.

Yep, Neilson Way is the one. Can't really get much closer to the beach, and it's a nice, safe area. Very walkable. If you'll be in Sea Colony, it's very, very nice. Good luck!
