just rent a room by the month in the area. that month will give you plenty of time to look around and decide where exactly you want to live.
you can find lots of room rentals on craigslist.org

Watch out for outlandish description of the buildings, various fees which they slip in on to the unsuspecting renters. Also deadbeat landlords who will handover the keys to the bank day after signing the lease and walk away with your rent and deposit. Many buildings also do not allow renter to use any facilities including parking if the landlord is behind on maintenance.

Your best bet would be - professionally managed rental building such as Flamingo. (google it for website)

Usually the further East along Lincoln the more expensive the rent tends to be as you are closer to the water. This doesn't mean you can't get a good deal, as there is plenty of inventory right now. The best advise I can give you is to take your time so you may see a couple of places before making a decision.

Becca-

I am verl familiar with Lincoln Road. One of the few residential buildings that I know of is 1000 Lincoln - The Deco Plage. It is located directly on the ocean. There are a few good options available. Send an e:mail and I will deliver the results. Another option is on the west end of Lincoln Road, near Alton- prices will be a bit less.

There is alot to rent. What do you want to be close too? My sis just bought a place in Austin Tx from London and she did alot of research on realtor.com. One of my other sisters is renting her place on Miami Beach, she just got married so it can be furnished, just a few blocks from Lincoln Road. There is actually a bus for a quarter that takes you there. Make sure you get a parking space where ever you end up. I can help you if you want.

Make sure you negotiate a lower rate than the offer. There are so many rentals on the market due to people trying to buy-to-let (rent out) that landlords are desperate or getting there. Make sure the rental has thick walls so you won't be disturbed by your neighbors. The elevator should be fast as it is annoying to wait (even for a few extra seconds) every day. Finally, don't let a Realtor® con you into buying a home.

London! My favorite city! Lived there for 5 years! There are quite a few options for you on the beach/lincoln rd. area. It really depends on what you are looking for. IE: #bedrooms, parking, furnished or not, pets, general price range? I would be happy to answer any other questions you have.

Good luck & best regards,
