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.
Housing Rentals Off Base at San Diego MCRD
The BAH (Basic Allowance for Housing zip 92140). 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. Some of the beach communities may not be as safe as others. Do your research before you move in. If you have kids, check out the school districts and know that every school in the state of California has a mandate that every school must present a “school accountability report”. You can google the school and this term and usually find what you’re looking for. We have the schools and the accountability reports for base housing.
MCRD Base Housing San Diego
Don’t plan on living on base here in San Diego because there are little to no housing depending on your spouses’ rank. Call 619-556-8443 to speak with options at other bases. You’ll probably end up living in the off base naval housing for Point Loma. If you have children you may want to consider applying for housing at Miramar because the school district is so awesome around there. The commute could be around 20 minutes from there to San Diego depending on traffic.
The closest base housing is on the Naval Base San Diego complex. This housing is also served by Lincoln Military, you will note that there are a ton of neighborhoods on this base that you could potentially live on. Of course living on base always has its own set of problems, which are consistent with every other base in the Marine Corps.
