Want to visit LA but have no place to stay? Forget the schmancy hotels on the Sunset Strip, and bunk down in style at one of these Venice Beach Eco Cottages. These three beach bungalows were completely remodeled using eco-friendly products: repurposed original wood, energy efficient appliances, and vintage furnishings and local art.
The brains behind this project is husband-and-wife team Karel Samson and Cynthia Foster, and they did a great job taking these one-time crack houses into very chic and sustainable vacation homes. They're located a mere four blocks from Abbot Kinney, which means there's a fair chance that you'll run into Laure (and if you do, she can tell you where to have a great brunch...)
