4) Venice Beach Eco Cottages

These three unique and cozy cottages offer a solar-powered green alternative to hotel life. You can live like a local just four blocks from the beach. Take your pick from the adorably themed cabins: the masculine Papa Hemingway, the 1940s-inspired Aunt Zoe’s Place, or the 1960s Parisian Le Bébé Cottage.
