In NY, searching for apartments online is a losing battle. I've already reached out to a handful of OC realtors and will be visiting in February to hopefully look at places, but am curious if there's any secret to finding a place in Laguna Beach. I realize there's limited real estate in the area. All of the online listing are just reposts of the same 5-10 properties. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
Most people in SoCal feel that Laguna Beach is a quaint town to visit, but not to live there. There are only three ways up or down the coast from there, Pacific Coast Hwy, the 5 freeway or the toll road after a trip through Laguna Canyon road. Most any time a commuter’s nightmare.
I will say a little about the alternative life style there. Imagine Greenwich Village in Lower Manhattan. Mix in a bunch of retirees, artists, and ultra liberals and you come close.
Follow shifty mutt's advice before commiting.

You could also look at Newport Coast. It's a newer area between Laguna and CDM. Apartments there are probably on Apartments.com. I'd say to look at the ones ShiftyMut recommended or a realtor for most of the areas you mentioned but Newport Coast probably wouldn't be on Craigslist. Good luck on CDM. Rentals there are probably few and far between. And expensive.
