Mar Vista Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
A cozy, family-friendly suburb, Mar Vista offers a pleasing mix of houses, townhomes, apartment complexes, and condos along quiet streets. An eco-friendly community, Mar Vista shows off its “green” savvy with the annual Mar Vista Green Garden Showcase, a self-guided tour of about 80 drought-resistant, edible gardens. The Mar Vista Certified Farmers Market is held every Sunday and features fresh, locally-grown produce. The market also features five annual festivals with live music, a weekly free craft workshop for kids, and a dog-sitting service.
Mar Vista is less than five minutes from the Pacific Coast beaches and 14 miles southwest of downtown Los Angeles. The University of California-Los Angeles (UCLA) is five miles north of Mar Vista, and Los Angeles International Airport is five miles south. This diverse neighborhood has a small, beach community feel, with friendly neighbors, bike paths, and plenty of shopping.
