I have been living here for a while now to review it. It is a very calm and relaxed neighbor with tons of restaurants and small cafes where you can get your coffee and enjoy the sun on a weekend day. It is very close to the water, about three miles, that you can reach with a 20 minutes bike ride down San Vicente boulevard or a 10 minutes car drive. The only downside is that if you work in east of the 405, you will have to deal with a lot of traffic.

Safe, walkable, and fun neighborhood. Great bars and restaurants close by, friendly people, and overall a wonderful place to live.
Brentwood is a wonderful place to live. It's very family friendly, safe, and the residents are very kind. If I never had to leave Brentwood I would be ok with that!
