Thanks sillywilly for your advice. In culver city , will $50 an hr would be okay if somebody rents out 1 or 2 bedroom apt. She doesn't have kids though. Somebody recently told her that she can work in Santa Barbara and stay in Lompoc. Now, I myself have even not heard of this place .
Sorry for the delay. 50 an hour will EASILY cover a 1 or 2 bed apartment in Culver City. I see them advertised around 800 a month.
If your friend wants to work in Santa Barbara she could live in Ventura. Lompoc is about 50 miles north of Santa Barbara. Im sure with traffic that will take forever! Lompoc is a really small town with not too much to do. There is a Walmart, a few small stores, and a tiny airport there. (I went skydiving there
Ventura is about 30 miles south of Santa Barbara. With rush hour traffic it still may take 40-60 minutes to get there, but it would probably still be faster and closer than living in Lompoc. Ventura is a really cute beach town too(I may be biased because I am moving there soon)!
I like their little downtown area. There are tons of small stores, restaurants, thrift shops, some bars, a theater where bands play, movie theater, ect.
One of my friends has a pretty nice 1 bedroom apartment in Ventura that is 50 feet away from the ocean for 1000 a month. Your friend might be able to find a nice place in Santa Barbara if she really looks. There are always good deals if you look hard enough.
