I have a friend in Huntington Beach, 300 yards or so from the sand that pays $1400 a mo for an older two bedroom apt. so you should be able to find something in your price range.

Studios just about everywhere are less than $1400. Places like Venice Beach, you may find a $900/month place. Imperial Beach, near San Diego, you may find something for around $800/month. It's the beach, but it's not the greatest beach town. In San Diego, there's Pacific Beach, Mission Beach, and Ocean Beach.. Try also looking north in Ventura/Oxnard. Oxnard is mostly Hispanic, while Ventura is mostly White.

That's all I can think of right now... Better yet, try hooking up with some roommates. You may save up to $300/400 per month!

Humboldt county ( Eureka, Arcata and McKinleyville ) is affordable in comparison to the rest of the state. My neighbors, Larry and Leslie and his brother moved here from Pennsylvania last summer. They are renting a 5 bedroom 2 story house for $1200 a month, we are 1/4 mile from the beach and Mad River. At night one can hear the ocean waves crash. A 2 to 3 bedroom house generally goes for $900 to $1400 a month, at the apartments next door 2 bedromm units go for $700 to $800 a month. The job market is not great here , but if you have construction skills , the building market is still going full tilt and there is always a need for a person handy with tools.

Default West Ventura County, but don't delay!

If you hurry, you might find a studio or shared rental situation in west Ventura County for less than $1k. But it won't last; the area's been discovered and rents -- particularly beach rents -- are rising fast.
