NY to LA Transplant Question

I was just offered a job in Los Angeles starting April of next year. We are considering it, and just starting to look around on Craigslist etc at housing/ neighborhoods. I am wondering which areas are good for our "prerequisites" which are really just things that are ideal and are in no way deal breakers:

We have a 3 month old daughter and would love to find a nice, quiet/ safe neighborhood to live in that is either near the beach (doesn't have to be ON the beach) or is farther east, but has a pool in the backyard.
We are only interested in houses, since we are moving from Brooklyn and the whole appeal of this move would be not living in an apt building anymore.
What are some nice non-astronomically expensive neighborhoods on the coast, or farther east where we could find a 2-3 bedroom house with a yard or pool for $2500 a month? I like the idea of Silverlake or Echo Park but from what I remember the houses are small and pretty packed in. Do you get to have fun stuff like a big yard or a pool in those neighborhoods? Any advice is appreciated!
