absolutely charming

  • 5 of 5
What a beautiful studio for the last few nights of our two week California vacation. The comfortable furniture allowed us to relax a bit after our day out and before we went out for dinner. The wine left for us was the perfect touch. Leaving coffee for us to brew and not rush out in the morning was such a lovely touch. No complaints at all. Highly recommend.

Perfect Carmel rental

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I came to Carmel for a few nights and this was the perfect place to stay. Brenda and David were more than welcoming and left us coffee, wine, and drinks in the fridge for our stay. They also were very helpful with recommendations of places to eat in town. The house was clean, cute, and perfect for us. We walked to and from town each night (about a 10 minute walk to the heart of town) and couldn't have asked for anything else. we loved the house and would definitely recommend!!

Wonderful Retreat

  • 5 of 5
Recently stayed at Le Petite Papillon and it is a wonderful retreat. We were not able to spend much time here, due to a busy schedule, but it was perfect for what we needed. The extra specials touches that Brenda and David did to make our stay all the more special were greatly appreciated. They are most accommodating and understanding and personalize your stay to make sure you feel welcomed and special.
Thanks Brenda and David for everything. Definitely would visit again.

amazing getaway in Carmel

  • 5 of 5
We spend three lovely days in Carmel this June and were pleasantly surprised with Le Petit Papillon. The owners, David and Brenda were thoughtful, attentive and welcoming. The french press coffee and the wine waiting for us were lovely touches. The cottage is well appointed, clean and the bed was very comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and would stay at Le Petit Papillon over and over again without any hesitation.
Thank you for such a lovely stay!

A Perfect Gem!

  • 5 of 5
This was my first time with VRBO and boy was I nervous! My husband and I read the wonderful reviews and decided to go for it. That was a great decision. It is a charming place filled with warm wonderful touches. It is impeccable and the lavender on the bed, the bottle of wine, the freshly ground coffee, the English teas, the fresh flowers, the fine soaps are just the beginning of a memorable weekend! The owners could not have been more helpful and I can't wait to go back for a longer stay! I also loved reading the journals where people from all over the world commented on how enjoyable their stay had been. Thank you for your incredible hospitality!

A perfect private get-away

  • 5 of 5
We loved every moment of the private cottage and continued to find little joys over the three days we stayed here - the welcome red wine, blueberries & local cheese, great coffee & milk provided, little welcome notes, an honesty system for handling our payment, hairdryers & floss, generous cupboard spaces, comfortable warm bed & heaters, delicious privacy! We loved the brief and unobtrusive chats with the Owner's - who were so helpful with providing adapter plugs for our overseas electronics, booking restaurants and just being delightful to chat and say Hi. This was our second visit to the area - being avid golfers we first stayed in the greater Pebble Beach Golf Complex - and this time, we chose a private and unbusy place by living in the cottage. Hands-down !!! - the cottage suits us much better being as we were able to access the Carmel centre easily, quick access to highways and the surrounding area ... we got a tiny taste of how wonderful it must be to live here! I would definitely return! David & Brenda - THANK-YOU for everything! XXXX
