"We very much enjoyed staying at this lovely home in Ojai! What an oasis.
Sherry (owner) VERY responsive, accommodating, and easy to work with
Serene location and space
Close to the little downtown, but enough removed for lots of privacy
Simple but homey decor
Very clean and organized
Beautiful sweeping views
Lots of beds
A/C (though it actually kept pretty cool if we were careful to close windows)
Beautiful front porch and sitting area in the backyard with BBQ
Lots of space in living room for socializing with friends and family
Nice big driveway, loop around, for easy access
CONS: (Keep in mind I am rating this space 5 stars so the cons were not a big enough deal to lose any stars)
House / bedroom layout - it's a little strange. Would not be an issue for just one couple to stay. As far as beds go, it can accommodate 6 + 2 couches. However, it's laid out such that two bedrooms are through another bedroom...meaning you have to go through one bedroom (the best one) to access the rest of the house. We made it work because we are all family. But just keep that in mind based on your group's needs.
One bathroom - again, no problem with just a couple visiting. But for 5 people, it was a little difficult. No big deal as we made it work, and were aware going into it. It's just always nice to have an additional bathroom.
Thanks so much for the awesome house! We'll definitely consider it again when we come back."

"So glad we choose Le Petite Papillon over a hotel! Quiet, peaceful and relaxing; perfect weekend getaway. Get decor and hospitality.
The studio is stocked with everything you may need. Toiletries, robes, extra space heaters, and plenty of room to lounge and relax. They even stocked the small fridge with sodas and drinks.
Truly a lovely location, and easy walk or drive to downtown Carmel. Looking forward to our next stay already!"

"all of our family members of three generations had enjoyed the most wonderful time at 'Golfer's Zen', which is the most desirable location at PB. every morning each member had their own destination, for golfing, biking, hiking, sightseeing and planning/ preparing dinner for the whole family. the house is beautiful, comfy, homey and thoughtfully arranged for the family. the putting green was the killer even for our grandma. Michele was easily communicated, kind and considerate enough to accommodate a couple of extra guests as well. thanks, Michele! PB is such a beauty of comfort, serenity and harmony with nature. the 'Golfer's Zen' well deserves as THE family destination at PB."

"We visit Santa Barbara frequently and this is the second home we have rented from the same owner. They are attentive, proactive and thoughtful with reservations, arrival and check out.
Santa Barbara is our favorite vacation spot, easy to get to from West LA yet we feel a million miles away.
We live a hectic lifestyle from work, kids sports, and social commitments. It is refreshing to leave the to do lists and traffic behind and enjoy the peace and quiet of beautiful Santa Barbara. My kids love the beaches, they are dog friendly too, a bonus for our family. We love the shops and dining on State Street and everyone is just happy in Santa Barbara. I guess we would be too if we could live here. We are an outdoor family, the hikes and biking paths are family friendly.
The home was clean, comfortable and charming. The neighborhood is supper quiet - you can hear birds in the day and crickets at night. The yard is awesome, great pool and deck area."
