Mar Vista is situated on the Westside of Los Angeles, sharing borders with Culver City, Santa Monica and Marina Del Rey. The area was developed between the 1950s to 1970s as low-cost housing. But recently, it has become a firm favorite in the renovation market.
The area south of Venice Boulevard is densely populated, with apartment blocks providing accommodation for long-term renters.
The neighborhood offers its highly-educated residents in their mid-20s the opportunity to enjoy the company of other alumni. Mar Vista holds the highest number of Bachelor’s and Master’s degree holders in the county.
Packed with coffee shops, specialty dessert stores, restaurants and parks, Mar Vista offers students and older residents a good balance between work and leisure. If you love the beach, you won’t be disappointed as Venice Beach and Santa Monica are mere minutes away. Mar Vista is Spanish for a view of the sea – and what a view it is!
