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.

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We rented the apartment for our niece and her

fiance as a birthday gift partnered with last year's

Jazz Festival. Though they are smokers, they

respected the owners wishes and only smoked

outside. It was a blue jean weekend with good

weather.



After we left, the owner charges us an excessive fee

to have her carpet cleaned blaming the dirt on our

niece. We saw the place before we left and there

was no such problem.



These two 27 year old professionals left the place

in the same condition in which they found it. We

were offened by the owners attitude and felt ripped

off by her charges.



Should you choose to stay here, we recommend

that you take pictures of the place when you check

in if you don't want to be charged falsely or

improperly by these people.



We would not recommend this place for that reason

and for their attitude towrds young people.

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.

This is the best place to stay in Carmel! Joe and Jan are such great hosts and have a wonderful and beautiful studio to stay in while visiting the Carmel area. They have thought of everything and didn't miss any details needed for a great vacation. It is in a great location; just minutes from everything you could want. The bed was very comfortable and having the breakfast foods available made it so easy to have a leisurely morning. We loved having the fresh fruit and the fresh cherries were the best. It was such a welcome place to return after a day of sightseeing and adventure. You will not go wrong with choosing this studio. We hope to return again and will be staying here for sure.

Honeymoon Retreat

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I got married in Las Vegas and then came to Carmel for our honemoon. We stayed in this wonderful studio for the following week and what a good choice that was!
Jan and Joe were so nice. When we checked in, we found fresh fruit, juice, cereal and milk, fully stocked in the kitchen. We arrived late and it was great to sleep in and have breakfast right there the next morning. There were also fresh flowers and a note on the gate to welcome us. A couple of days later we found some fresh cherries and blueberries that Jan picked up at the farmers market on the doorstep. The studio was absoutely beautiful and the garden was lovely. I was so inspired by all of the beautiful flowers in the garden, once I returned home I immediately went to the nursery and purchased blooming flowers and boxes and set them up on my patio at home to remind me of sunny, beautiful California and the adorable french studio. Thank you Jan and Joe for making our honeymoon something that we will always remember. We hope to revisit on an anniversary in the future!

I am so glad that I booked this suite. My wife loved it and I liked being able to put my own breakfast together when I wanted it. Joe and Jan have fully equipped the suite with everything you might need to enjoy the area. For example, a cooler bag and other picnic supplies are in the suite so that you can take your picnic to the beach or a nearby state park (suite comes with a pass to the state parks). The suite itself is exactly as advertised and you can't help but relax when you step through the door. In terms of offering an "even better if" I'm stuck - it was great. Also, the suite is very quiet - great sleeps!

a little bit of heaven

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved our visit to this wonderful cottage in Carmel. Though we had to leave earlier than planned due to unexpected illness, we cannot wait to return again. The cottage is beautifully appointed and there are so many amenities and extras. We loved having the access to the state parks (particulary Point Lobos) and the pass for the aquarium. Jan and Joe made us feel so welcomed from the moment we saw our personalized sign on the gate welcoming us. The flowers are so beautiful and surround the cottage. I loved seeing all the flowers looking out the windows. There was a lovely selection of fruit and yogurt and a bottle of wine.... Really above and beyond. Plus Jan has checked on us several times since we left to make sure my husband was doing okay. That really meant a lot to us. I would most definitely recommend this property wholeheartedly. They've thought of everything to make your visit perfect.

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5
Whatever you may be searching for... stop immediately and book this place! It is truly so charming that even the photos do not do it justice. From the very beginning, this has been a stellar experience. Not only did the owners, who live next door, go out of their way to help me plan my trip, but once I arrived (in a bedraggled and over-stressed state, to say the least) they made me feel welcome and pampered beyond my wildest expectations. As an interior designer of many vacation properties, I am quite particular regarding the lodging that I select. I can honestly say that the darling décor, the IMMACULATE housekeeping, and the comfortable furniture, bedding, and ambiance are far to superior to any vacation home that I have visited. Not one need was overlooked, from the stocked bath and refrigerator, to maps, park passes, and local information. To put it simply... get here. You will never experience a more gracious welcome nor a more restful retreat!
