I work in the Sherman Oaks area with a lot of renters and I'm very familiar with the homes for rent there. For $1600, you'll find more available if you will also consider condominiums and apartments. Many have pools and parking included! I also know of a great two-story townhome that just came out a couple of weeks ago. Call me (818) 261-5253 and I'll help you find what you're looking for.
