Our stay at Le Petite Papillon

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time staying at Le Petite Papillon! The studio was spotless and the attention to detail was 5 star! A bottle of wine awaited our arrival along with chocolates on our pillows and delicious caramels ( so delicious I bought some at the local market!). The bed was very comfortable as was the couch and chair. They provide coffee, tea , oatmeal, water and sodas for you. The bathroom was stocked with items you might forget and We loved lounging in the comfy robes they provide. The owners were in contact immediately to make sure everything was suitable for us. I would highly recommend this charming studio and hope to stay there again. The town of Carmel is very charming!

Cute, Romantic, Friendly, and extremely convenient location for enjoying Carmel

  • 5 of 5

David and Brenda has truly created a a treasure of an experience with Le Petite Papillon! My new wife and I stayed here two nights on our honeymoon while heading up the coast from LA to SF. They welcomed us in person and gave the first of many perfect recommendations for a romantic dinner in Carmel. David even gave us his business card and a "story" to help us get a free drive down 17 mile drive! Great personal touch.

As for the accommodations, they were spacious and clean. Lots of historic paintings lined the walls. The cable worked well too. The neighborhood is quaint and just a short 5 minute walk to downtown Carmel.

We will definitely return and highly recommend this place for any couple looking for a romantic getaway.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is a charming studio located in a very nice neighborhood close to Carmel downtown. My husband and I had a fantastic time during our stay here. The place is very well equipped and it is very private. The hosts are wonderful if you even want to ask suggestions about things to do or places to grab a bite. There's so many good things to say about this place that its hard to put them all down. I definitely recommend this place if you're considering a Carmel getaway. I'm sure we will return soon.

Perfect Carmel Cottage Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent our abbreviated 2-day honeymoon in this rental and we absolutely loved our stay at this small cottage in Carmel. David met us when we arrived to orient us to the house and also gave us some excellent recommendations on where to eat dinner in Carmel. We strongly disagree with the most recent review as we found the studio to be extremely clean and very well kept. Charming is the absolute best word to describe this place as it gives you a “home like” feeling, provides plenty of privacy, and is a perfect distance from downtown Carmel. We were excited to find a chilled bottle of wine waiting for us upon arrival and we french pressed our coffee in the morning which was outstanding. The bathroom was filled with high quality soap/shampoo/conditioner and all of the towels/linens/comforters were freshly laundered.This place was a great value and we would absolutely recommend this to friends/family staying in the area and would definitely stay here again.
