Do you mean that you are in Seattle and looking to rent a room in OC (not THE OC. BTW)? If that's the case then you are never gonna be certain what you are getting. Do you know anyone down here who can preview locations for you? I would be hesitant to arrange a rental sight-unseen - for many reasons.

I would suggest that you arrange to stay with a friend or in a hotel for a short time till you can make more permanent arrangements.

If you are not up to an extended stay, or other hotel, because of the expense, another option is to stay at a youth hostel for a few days while checking-out rooms.

Colonial Inn Youth Hostel
421 8th St
Huntington Beach, CA 92648
district: Huntington Beach+1 714.536.3315

Fullerton Inn
601 W Orangethorpe Ave, Fullerton, CA 92833 +1 714.773.4900

Be very cautious, and don’t send money to a total stranger for some room you have never even inspected. Remember to take someone with you.

BTW, it’s a different scenario, but this latest Craigslist story should give you reason to pause and think:
