If you like my answer, thumbs up and best abswer me, thx!
Unfortunately, when it comes to renting you're somewhat on your own. You can sift through the properties for rent online or pay for services that try to condense all the publicly available listings into a single presentation.
Real estate agents can help you with MLS listed properties. These are generally properties listed for a commission with an agent in much the same way that properties are listed for sale. Many of these properties are listed other ways as well, though sometimes they are not.
The good news about these properties is that you get a professional working to find you a place to live and the commisions are customarily paid by the landlords here in L.A.. You'll also find lot's of opportunities available from Downtown to the beach at every price point.
Best of Luck.
Remember that if the person you are working with someone from a craigslist.com ad, who states that they are "out of the country", this is most likely a scam and to steer away from them.
There are many Corporate Housing Complexes around the Los Angeles area that offer fully furnished units, with appliances, dishes, linens all amenities. The cost is a bit more because you are paying for the furnishings. You can rent these places short or long term.

Let me know.
Try looking on hotigloos.com, craigslist.com, these two are free, (however, please be aware of scams on craigslist.com...if someone is offering a place for $800 or a very small amount, if the owner is out of the country, and if they want you to send money before you look at it...it's probably a scam and steer away from it) and there is a paid site called westsiderentals.com. They will have more listings that are posted by the management companies and owners of the types of buildings you are looking for.
In the MLS right now, in the areas you want, for a newer building, there are none. There are several older units that have been renovated.
Let me know if you would like me to send you via e-mail some of the listings so you can look at them.
All the best, and Good Luck!
