San Diego to Santa Barbara
Jun 21 12, 1:52 pm
I thought that I should let you know that I accepted a job at Boeing in Long Beach and will be moving down to the area in a month or so (pending background check). You may have seen my Facebook post but I thought that I should give you more information about what I am looking for. I traveled down to the area yesterday and fell in love with Seal Beach. I like the small town feel, proximity to work and to the surf. However, it is harder to find rentals there, especially w/o a roommate (I do not want to live with a random person). Other areas I like include Bolsa Chica in HB and Belmont Shores/Heights in LB. The first area is closer to the surf but 25-30 mins from work (by Google Maps), with the second a little closer to work (15-20 mins, but with no surf). I am open to any other areas in LB that are safe and relatively walkable. This is what I am looking for in an apartment:
- At least one bedroom/one bath
- Decently sized kitchen (I like to cook)
- Storage for my surfboard (I don't want it to be a pain to take out every time)
- Maximum rent of $1500 (preferably $1300-$1400 or less)
- Laundry nearby (on site or in room preferred)
- A walkable (relative to TO/South OC suburbia) neighborhood
- 30 mins max commute to work (preferably on surface streets, as the 405 is terrible)
If you know of any people with places to rent, areas I should look into, or people that need roommates around LB/north OC, please let me know. The faster you guys help me find a place, the quicker I will be able to come surf with y'all.

Wanted to update you all and let you know that I signed a lease for a place in Seal Beach a block from the beach on 1st street. I will start my job on August 6 and will move in between August 1 and 15. So stoked to move down to the area and surf with you all.

That's an awesome idea, Steve. Whaddya say Ryan? Make it an Aug 4 Theres Goes The neighborhood meet? lol
I'd recommend Sunset though. Not sure if everyone will dig Seal and avoid parking fees at Bolsa.

Hey guys sorry for the late response. I am still trying to figure out when I will get to move into my new place (hopefully it won't be that weekend). I may have to move into temporary housing (I start work the Monday after the meetup) but I should have my surfboard with me. Sunset sounds great btw!
