Charming and Romantic Studio Cottage

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed in this lovely studio cottage in February and we loved it. It was just what we were looking for - a cozy place for two with charming accents and a lovely outside area on a quiet, tree-lined street. Our hosts were very pleasant and responsive. They contacted us ahead of time to check on our arrival time and to provide some items we might want. We don't drink wine so they left us some delicious dark chocolates instead! (They also contacted us after our 2 night stay to tell us we left a couple of chargers - and sent them to us promptly.) The studio is a good size with a nice sitting area and a very comfortable and inviting bed made up with lovely linens. The bath is a decent size with a standard tub and shower and a roomy counter top for makeup, toiletries, and a small fan or heater - both provided. The closet has extras visitors are welcome to use - such as a rain slicker, umbrella, or flashlight. A walk into town would be a long walk, but the drive is just a few minutes and the privacy and charm of the location is well worth it. I would recommend this little cottage to couples or a single looking for a nice, welcoming place to return after enjoying an outing in Carmel or Monterey. My husband and I would definitely recommend Le Petite Papillon and would stay there again.

Great place in Carmel

We really enjoyed this lovely studio and the hospitality of our hosts. Le Petite Papillion has everything you need for your stay, and the location is great. You can walk to the Carmel village or take a 2 minute drive and see the amazing cottages that make up this foresty seaside neighborhood.

Excellent customer service

  • 5 of 5
We had booked with them for our 44th anniversary. Brenda & David were always very prompt in getting back to us & provided us with detailed information. Unfortunately we had to cancel a couple of days before the date due to health issues. They showed great concern for our well being & went the extra mile to try & get fresh bookings. We are looking forward to staying at Le Petit Papillon in the near future.

What a spectacular visit we had with Brenda & Dave this weekend-- This property has everything you ever knew you might need-- and then some- It is on a quiet side street perfect to come home to after a long day of hiking/shopping/whale watching/ sitting outside on the patio listening to the birds --- we can not wait to go back- The customer service is superb- just loved the whole experience--

A Peace of Heaven in Carmel

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from the most incredible experience in this beautiful town and it was elevated to impeccable with a stay at Le Petit Papillon, tucked away in a pristine little nook of Carmel. David and Brenda left no detail untouched with personalized touches ubiquitous (our favorite wine, french pressed Peet's coffee and even Almond milk) and hospitality to match. If under promise and over deliver was the context, our hosts, and this property fulfilled that for sure. Immense gratitude for opening up their studio to

And as a little aside, Dametra's provided a spectacular meal for us in town (ten minute walk away)

I would highly recommend, in a "do not miss this opportunity" suggestion if you want to elevate your experience and adventure to the next level.

They Thought of Everything

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed here for a couple of days on our way back to the Bay Area from SoCal. Brenda and David have thought of everything for guests at their beautiful studio. We arrived at night, with wine bottle lanterns leading the way to our door. There was a bottle of wine there for us, as well as coffee and tea for the morning. Never once did we want for any necessity or luxury, for that matter. It takes about 10 minutes to walk to downtown Carmel, and its a nice walk through the neighborhood. We made it all the way down to the beach and back and never felt like we were walking far. If you're looking for a quiet place for a romantic weekend or just a nice place to stay while visiting Carmel, Brenda and David's place is perfect.
