New job is near the Los Alamitos base. Thinking of living right on the beach in Huntington. I need a combination of surf, or at least no-drive ocean access, and enough nightlife to stay sane. Any other options you all would recommend? If anyone has an apartment for rent that meets the criteria, let me know.

I enjoyed living in Laguna Niguel/Dana Pt area for a year but there was no decent nightlife or pizza. I don't know chit about Huntington. OC is a strange place.

With where you're working HB is going to be perfect for the two things you want. Newport would work too, but that could be up to a 45 minute drive up PCH to get to work. Look in the numbered streets of HB and you'll be close to downtown and surf

Yes, living in HB is a good call, and probably checks all of the boxes you mentioned. Going more south might be too much of a commute.

Looking at Craigslist ads right now. Jesus, how do people afford to live in Newport Beach? Of the three houses for rent on the Peninsula, one is falling apart, one is $6500/month, and the other is 22.5k/month.

reasonable priced stuff rentwise in Costa Mesa and can be at the Jettys in Newps or HB in 10-15 minutes by car.

Other than that rent is redic all over.

Rent in Huntington or Seal Beach if you want to live coastal. It's expensive, but not Newport-expensive. You can get to work in Los Al pretty quickly from those areas.

For a little more affordable housing, look at Westside Costa Mesa. Super close to the ocean, tons of great food close by, and accessible to work.

When I say close to the ocean, I mean I want to be able to see it from my bedroom window and lazily walk over there to jump in every morning. No drive, no cams, no preparation. From what I can see for rent I can afford to live that way in HB, but like you said, ringer, Newport is another world.

Retodd, we will be in touch about secret sandbars. I will pay for the information in your choice of intoxicant.
