You can't really ask for a better location than anywhere by the ocean, and Playa del Rey is no exception. I work out of Playa Del Rey and can tell you that if there was one thing that might concern you, it would be living in a resort town while having to get up to go to work every day. The prices can be quite high though, so you might want to consider moving slightly inland about one mile to Playa Vista, which is a master planned community. El Segundo is a lovely, quite town but you will have to deal with not only the air traffic, but also the fact that one of the largest water purification plants for the city of LA is directly adjacent. Mar Vista is about another mile inland from Playa Vista and homes range from the high 700's ;condos from 450,000 up.
