PLAYA DEL REY, CA, FOR RENT, FOR LEASE
Playa del Rey (Spanish for "Beach of the King" or "King's beach") is a beachside
community home to many residential rental properties in the Westside of the city of Los
Angeles, California. It has a ZIP code of 90293 and area codes of 310 and 424. The district's
population is estimated at 9,755 and the visible rolling hills are the result of ancient, wind-blown,
compacted sand dunes which rise up to 125 feet above sea level. They are often referred to
as “The Del Rey Hills” or "The Bluffs". This area of sand dunes was the last stretch of coastal
land in the city of Los Angeles to be developed. All of the houses, duplex, triplex, fourplex and
multifamily investment properties in this area were custom built, many as beach homes owned
by Hollywood actors and producers, including Cecil B. Demille, Charles Bickford, and many

Playa del Rey in the 1950s and early 1960s was known as a great Los Angeles
area "surfing spot", but due to the many rock jetties that were built to prevent beach erosion,
the good surf is mostly gone. The beach at the northernmost end of Playa del Rey is still known
as "Toes Over Beach. Today a bridge between Playa Del Rey and the jetty between Ballona
Creek and the Marina is accessible to foot traffic and bicycle traffic, but not to automobiles.
Playa del Rey does not have rent control and interestingly locals refer to the small area of
multifamily properties south of Culver Boulevard and closest to the beach as The Jungle,
regarding a group of closely built apartments with small sidewalks and deep green overgrowth.
Multifamily property renters should know that the southern portion of the original Playa
del Rey development known as "Surfridge," is now vacant. Between 1966 and 1975 the houses
that were once there were either moved to new locations or were demolished or taken by
eminent domain to facilitate the expansion of Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). Today
one can see only barbed-wire fences protecting vacant land and old streets where houses once
sat. Recent LAX rejuvenation plans call for the city to finally remove the old streets that still line
the empty neighborhood. Renters should know that the condemned areas of the community are
now a protected habitat of the endangered El Segundo blue butterfly.
So fly right into the heart of Playa Del Rey at LAX and tour our many available duplex,
triplex, fourplex and multifamily properties there. Plan to spend the day and visit the many
world renown museums attractive to prospective tenants like the Getty Center, LA Museum
of Contemporary Art, Skirball Center, Museum of Tolerance, or Bergamot Station Art Center.
