I am moving to Santa Monica and many apartments we are looking at don't have A/C. Is this really a big deal? Will I regret this mid-July or does the ocean breeze really keep things cool? Thanks!
It depends on how far inland the apartment is. If it's as far as 5 miles you'll regret not having the air conditioning. If it's only 1 mile it will likely be fine but be sure you'll have cross ventilation from west to east since that's the direction of the prevailing winds.
