Venice Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

The Papa Hemingway cottage is a warm, masculine one-of-a-kind beach bungalow, originally built in 1922 and renovated from the ground up in 2007 in a completely sustainable, earth-friendly manner.

Everything is eco-friendly – from the purified water to the organic mattresses, linens and non-toxic cleaning products used every day.

This solar powered urban retreat is carbon neutral.

Experience Venice like a local … surrounded by art and antiques in a restorative eco-friendly environment.

There are two other lovely cottages on the premise too. Check out

What a great stay! Everything perfectly thought out. A code for the door in a great neighbourhood and just five minutes walk from Abbot Kinney. Small but perfectly laid out. Accommodated four of us (two adults and two kids) without too much difficulty. Good little kitchen if you need to prepare food there. Very comfortable (main) bed.

Charming, but not silent

  • 4 of 5

Very special and charming interior. Partly antique, with its pros and cons regarding usability. Location is close to Venice beach, but a car is really needed to shop and get around (except to the beach). Owner responded friendly and efficiently to our minor issues. The main downside of this cottage is noise from the street. The neighborhood was not noisy, but the street was. If you wish to retreat in full silence and maximum comfort, this is not for you. If you are ready for a charming and special interiors, and sleeps well with some street noise, you might well consider this rental.

Too expensive

  • 2 of 5

No question the cottage is nice. Very cute. Venice beach is not the former glory it once was. It is basically full of homeless bums. Most of the businesses are now closed, a ghost town really.

I would not stay here again unless the price was $100 per day max. Way nicer locations in california for same or less money.

Very noisy street! If you dont like sleep and love overpriced accomodations than you'll love it here.

Was very clean and quaint. Close to everything if you wanted to get out of Venice and explore. Would stay there again if ever get back to Venice. Felt safe. Tastefully decoratated.

Venice Beach Eco-Cottage - 'Papa Hemingway Cottage'

  • 5 of 5

The Hemingway cottage is on a busy street. This is an urban area. If you are not used to street traffic and noise, you will be disappointed. Also, there is a foot traffic. If you are not used to that, you will be disappointed.

The cottage is walking distant to Venice beach, bars, restaurants on Abbot Kinney. Very convenient if you don't have a car. Liquor store on Abbot Kinney has small amount of groceries if you need anything. The cottage has a refrig, stove, washer/dryer. Off street parking in back.

The neighborhood is safe. Again, this is an urban area.

This is a cottage, not a hotel or beach resort. It's like staying at a friend's house while they are out of town. I would absolutely stay there again. The people in the neighborhood are friendly! I met Ross (owner) by chance when I arrived and he is really a nice guy.
