Also, the closer to the beach you get, the more you'll find owners advertising the property for rent on a sign in front of the property only. You might want to drive through the neighborhoods you like and look that way as well.
With a budget of up to $3000 per mo. you should find lots of homes available. Also, you could purchase for that amount as well. You may want to consider that for the future.
Best of luck...
Not sure if you have found something, since I see your question is over a week old. If not, I'd be happy to help!
I currently see 4 properties that fit your criteria between Beach and Brookhurst, but if you are willing to move a bit out of those boundaries, there are many more properties offered. There is even one close to the beach by Main St. that would possibly be a good fit.
Let me know if I can be of any assistance!
