Naval and Marine Corps Housing
There are a string of bases in the San Diego area who share housing: MCRD San Diego, MCAS Miramar, NB San Diego, NB Coronado, and NB Point Loma. That means if you are stationed at Miramar and want to live on base, you don’t necessarily have to live on Miramar. If you do choose to live on Miramar, this page is for Miramar base exclusively.
Housing Rentals Off Base for Miramar
The BAH (Basic Allowance for Housing zip 92145) is fair for this area. There are beautiful homes and condos off base. If you are interested in renting, it will most likely be in a safe area as this is an affluent community. This area has also been recently affected by
forest fires, so check around the area for any signs of smoke/water damage if renting or being surrounded in a neighborhood instead of isolated in the foothills.
Utility Costs off Base
Remember that utilities in California are spendy. It is not uncommon to have a $300 electric bill in the summer.
Miramar Military Base Housing
Almost all of the base housing has been remodeled or is currently in the works. Living in a neighborhood on base is great! The housing on base is nice, utilities are free and friends are right next door. We have a lot of pools on the Marine Corps base here and many activities are hosted as well. It is much easier to make friends when you live on base and have each other to lean on when your spouse gets deployed! If you don’t live on base, there are some great options out in town. Keep in mind that you will be responsible for your own utilities and you lose out on the military community.
