Santa Monica for 4 months

Hi from London

My daughter and her friend are coming to Los Angeles to work for 4 months during her summer vacation from university - so its June -October. Their jobs are organized and are in Santa Monica. However as yet they haven't got anywhere to stay apart from the first few days. They need to stay near work as neither of them drive. Should they look for a rental, or people who need roommates? Are there websites to look on that would help? Any suggestions would be gratefully received. Thanks

They should check craigslist.org and click on Los Angeles and then Rentals.

Yoga studios in Santa Monica have bulletin boards where people post for short term rental availability, house sitting, etc. They should go to all the yoga studios once they're here, if they still need a place. Also, there are a few inexpensive places in Venice that rent by the week - la.com/cgi-bin/…

You might try losangeles.craigslist.org/

It is a site that exists in many US cities. it is like a bulletin board where people put up notices of rommates,rentals ,things for sale etc.Good luck

Thanks for the info - checked the craigslist site but most adverts require roommates very soon. Perhaps we should check it a bit closer to June. Am still a bit nervous about her going with nowhere to stay so any other advice, help or suggestions would be very gratefully received. Thanks.

Here is a web site for a hostel in Santa Monica.

It might be an inexpensive place to stay for a while. I know how it feels to have a child travelling. good luck
