They have some good places for pretty darn good prices, if you have roommates. Start asking around, facebook surfing and find a roommate.
Last time I looked on there there was like several gorgeous condos with beach views for like 1800 a month 3 bed 2 bad. split over 3 people is $600 a month. That's fantastic or even two people and an office would be 900 and that's not bad either.
Good luck, happy hunting.
Something sounds fishy in that $1800 ad. Do you have the link? If it's legit it sounds great though.
I was saying for example. I just threw something out from my memory and I doubt its still up. I think I might have even exaggerated a bit, the more realistic price was probably more like 2300 for 3 bed 2 bath which is still like $770 a month, not bad at all (of course this doesn't include utilities, food, etc.)
But there are some great places that can be found on Craigslist, just dig for it. With the recession there's a lot of opportunities, especially if you're creative. You can even look at like the vacation rental places that rent out monthly. You might have to pay different prices based on peak periods but if you have roommates and are willing to fight for a good place, go for it. With roommates and creativity everything is much more affordable.
Do we have a Pepperdine 2012 facebook group yet? I'd love to go ahead and start looking at housing but am in need of roommate(s). We should get 4 or 5 people together and get something beachfront...
I'm nowhere near making a decision yet, but I'll be visiting the school in a couple weeks. If I do accept, I would be so down for that, I saw some ridiculously awesome places on Craigslist. If you go 4+ bedrooms you really get hooked up.
