Studio, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Behind a charming garden gate, through your own private entrance is a bright,cozy, quiet retreat conveniently located .8 mile from the village of Carmel-By-The-Sea. Our very spacious studio is a pleasant walk or quick drive to exceptional restaurants, shops, beautiful beaches and all that Carmel and the Monterey Peninsula has to offer.

Our comfy queen size bed comes complete with a Pierre Deux down comforter,down pillows, and reading lamps. Our studio is planned to provide you with built-in bookcases with lots of books, cable television to watch from bed or the sitting area, a DVD/VCR player for movies, and DSL and wireless access for your laptop.

Enjoy having your own favorite coffee or tea along with your breakfast at a lovely French antique table next to our fully appointed kitchenette with white tile and sunny yellow faux walls. Pick up some wine or cheese or a meal to go when you don't feel like eating out. We also have a fully tiled bath with tub/shower, window, and built-in cabinets with plenty of room for your bubble bath.

A small cobblestone patio with bistro table and chairs, ferns and pots of lavender is a perfect setting for a glass of wine from the local award winning wineries or a cup of tea with a pastry from the popular Carmel bakeries. Large sliding glass doors look out to the patio and garden and provide sun and light to the inside. Our private garden is enclosed with a tall seven and a half foot ivy covered fence that surrounds the property and provides much privacy for our guests to enjoy the flowers, a tall stately redwood and beautiful mountain views.

Park your car off the street in our large driveway, check into our La Petite Chambre', and enjoy a perfect get-away for two. A lovely spot for an anniversary, birthday, or special week-end. Not suitable for children.

As a special welcome, we like to include a fresh fruit bowl, a bottle of wine, assorted breakfast things for our guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We could not have asked for a better stay, have never stayed in a more comfortable place. If we are ever in Carmel again, this is the place to stay!

Bright and Airy - A Little Bit of France

  • 5 of 5
What can be said that everyone else hasn't said? This is a lovely, private, quiet, and comfortable studio near to everything you might want to see. We were welcomed with fresh flowers and a personal note on the gate. Walking through to the private gardens and opening the spotless glass door, we entered a bright, colorful room, looking out onto the gardens, again with spotless windows. There is fruit and wine awaiting you, and plenty of books, brochures, and magazines to keep you occupied if you just want to relax. If you leave something at home, no worries -- you will probably find it in the Petite Chambre! Extra toiletries, breakfast foods, and water are there for your use. The bed was very comfortable - a big plus for hubby - and the furnishings comfy and spacious. You have a microwave, toaster oven, and coffee maker to use for a meal in. Free passes to the Monterey Bay Aquarium and an Adventure Pass for State Parks parking are provided also, making this an extremely affordable trip. Thank you Jan & Joe for a wonderful experience!

Full of Charm and Top-Notch in Every Way

  • 5 of 5
My 9 year old granddaughter and I stayed at Jan & Joe's Le Petite Chambre for a special "just the two of us" long weekend over Thanksgiving and everything was beyond perfect -- my granddaughter adored it! Every detail was thought of, including fresh fruit, chocolates, wine & nuts, coffee, tea, cocoa, cereal, juice, milk and more all served in beautiful style. All the furnishings are top quality with special touches everywhere and the bedding is as plush and comfortable as it looks in the pictures (also two charming outside patios)! I had never visited the area and Jan's recommendations were excellent and she was always quickly available whether prior to or during our stay. And the home's location, while private and lovely, is convenient to US1 which made it easy to get to Big Sur, Monterey, and we even went to Santa Cruz for their Christmas train ride with Santa! The included aquarium and state park passes were the icing on the cake and a great savings too. You truly couldn't ask for more gracious hosts or a lovelier property to call home while in Carmel! We had such great fun! HIGHLY recommend and will be back to take more time exploring this beautiful area!

Fabulous, Charming, Ten Star!

  • 5 of 5
After a blissful week in this beautiful studio, it was so hard to return home. Jan is a wonderful hostess. The studio is private, luxurious, spacious, and very well equipped. Jan and Joe have thought of everything! I loved the decor, too. Loved this studio, and can't wait to go back! Thank you Jan!

Charming French Studio Apartment Highest Recommendation

  • 5 of 5
As one can see from the pictures, this apartment is a joy to the eyes. What one can't see is the thought and care the owners take making it such a pleasant get-a-way. From the well stocked refrigerator and pantry (cereals, coffee, juice, wine, chocolates, nuts, water, sodas, etc.) to wonderful books and videos, to great suggestions for dinners and tours, and a very comfortable bed, the Stines have thought of everything. At night, we were greeted by a candlelit pumpkin, and Jan even left pumpkin muffins on the gate as a special gift. The patio is a warm, inviting place to have a drink...such beautiful blooms and greenery. We can't say enough about this beautiful retreat.

The Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
This is one of the most incredible little spots on the planet! Le Petite Chambre far exceeded our expectations and was the perfect place to celebrate our 39th anniversary. Not only were the accommodations immaculate and every possible need met, but the hosts, Jan and Joe were two of the most thoughtful, gracious people we've ever met. Every suggestion they made - from dining to day hikes, were perfect. We packed all we could in to our 5 day stay and experienced the beauty and charm of Carmel and Le Petite Chambre in a way that was truly 5 star!
When we walked up to the gate adorned with fresh flowers beautifully arranged in a basket hung there, and saw our names on the "Welcome Gary & Leslie" sign attached to it, we knew we were in for a big treat. Stepping through the spotless sliding glass door into our room with gorgeous French Country furnishings, top of the line bed linens, fresh fruit on the table, yummy cereal on the shelf, orange juice, milk and cream in the fridge, popcorn, hot chocolate, beautiful crystal glasses, delicious chocolates, shelves decorated with wonderful books, gorgeous gardens viewed from every window... well, we just stood there in awe. All of the reviews I had read before booking were exactly what we were experiencing.
So, I am hesitant to tell you how much we loved this place because I'm afraid word will get out and we won't be able to book it again due to high demand. However, Jan and Joe deserve the highest accolades. Not only was this one of the very nicest places we have ever stayed, but by far the best treatment we have ever received by our hosts. Thank you for giving us the "Royal Treatment". We will forever have fond memories of this piece of Heaven and the new friends we made in Carmel-by-the-Sea!

Delightful!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Le Petite Chambre for 5 nights as part of our honeymoon and it was perfect. The listing and reviews left us with high hopes and we weren't disappointed. The owners have decorated this charming studio space perfectly. It's cute, cozy, and the bed is extremely comfortable. The owners stocked the fridge for us, and left fresh fruit on the table and cereal and popcorn in the "pantry." There was also a few beers and a bottle of wine, as well as a handwritten card congratulating us on our marriage.

The owners have made sure to include binders full of brochures, pamphlets, and newspaper stories about the local attractions, complete with their own notes. We found them very useful. The park passes and aquarium pass make this the best deal around.

I could rave all day about Le Petite Chambre because EVERYTHING was perfect - it was clean, the owners were helpful and friendly and good at respecting privacy, the location was great (not in the heart of Carmel but very close).

We recommend the following (for 30-something science-y types):
- Monterey Bay Kayak tour (we had Katie, she was awesome)
- Coffee and pastries at the Carmel Bakery
- Monterey Bay Aquarium
- Hearst Castle (3-hour drive down the coastal highway...worth it!)
- Dinner at Nepenthe
- Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park
- Breakfast at Deetjen's

The reviewer who said "whatever you're looking for, stop and book this place" had it right. Stop looking, and just book this place. It's great.
