About
Description
Welcome to the Venice Beach Eco-Cottages, which offer visitors to Los Angeles the chance to live like a local, while enjoying an inspired, cozy, healthy and green alternative to the standard hotel experience. More These three solar-powered urban retreats are only four blocks from the beach and the hip shops and eateries of Abbot Kinney Blvd. The cottages may be booked for short or long term stays; private events and location shooting. Choose from the sleek candied baroque feel of the Le Bébé Cottage, to the cozy lakeside cabin kitsch of Aunt Zoe’s Place to the warm, woodsy feel of the Papa Hemingway Cottage. A visit also offers guests a chance to do good while feeling good at VBEC, 3% of the revenue from each visit goes to charity. Each of the one-bedroom retreats was restored from the ground up using earth friendly, organic and re-purposed materials – from a flea market find bugle turned into a pot rack; to a vintage record cabinet turned into a bathroom vanity to a large bird cage turned into a cozy swivel chair. Modern conveniences blend beautifully with vintage accents at VBEC. Each cottage features EnergyStar washer, dryer and dishwasher, WiFi, 42" HDTV and a discreetly placed home theater system. In addition to the beauty and comfort of the cottages, they're also extremely healthy for you and the planet. All building materials are sustainable and non-toxic, all paints and finishes have no/low VOCs, linens and mattresses are organic, cleaning supplies are all natural and fragrance free. The whole house water filtration system means you'll draw drinking water from the faucets and even be showering in purified water. The cottages are the entrepreneurial dream-come-true of husband and wife owners, Cynthia Foster and Karel Samsom who blended their respective backgrounds as an environmental economist and an actor/artist to create the cottages as a beloved art project.

Venice
Venice has always danced to its own beat as the
epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along
the boardwalk there are street performers and local
craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings,
souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of
visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting
enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders
do their tricks around the skate park. All of it
