Quiet comfort in Carmel by the Sea

  • 5 of 5

We experienced all the ambience of a Carmel neighborhood. Pleasant studio apartment with all the comforts of home. Walked to the village for dinner. The only challenge was choosing from all of the great restaurants Carmel has to offer. Great location to visit all of the local attractions. Looking forward to staying there again. Thank you Dave and Brenda for your gracious hospitality.

Cozy spot for a getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was set-up to make you feel at home right away. The owners are very good at making you feel welcome before arriving, once you arrive, and very helpful during your stay if anything is needed or any questions come up. This is a short walk to downtown Carmel (make sure you bring a flashlight on the walk if going at night). It is also a short drive to Monterrey, and close to Point Lobos as well which was also a great place to check out while we were there.

Highly Recommend to any couples wanting to relax.

Lovely respite in a beautiful town

  • 5 of 5

Le Petite Paillion is a great place to stay while enjoying Carmel. Convenient to Hwy 1, and to the charming village of Carmel-by-the-Sea, this studio was quiet, comfortable, and provided necessities, as well as niceties like luxurious bed linens and bath towels. I wish I'd had time to sit in the lovely garden! The hosts were welcoming and helpful, and, as a woman traveling alone, I felt totally safe and comfortable during my stay. I'd definitely make it my go-to place for future visits.

Such a charming studio for our stay in Carmel. Appreciate all the special and personal details put into place by owners David and Brenda. They went out of their way to ensure we were comfortable.

The property was amazing inside and out! Comfortable beyond words with all the amenities.

  • 5 of 5

Le Petite Papillon was so charming, inviting and comfortable that we felt right at home as soon as we pulled into the driveway. Walking across the stone walkway and patio, we were awed by the beauty of the property and the wonderful decorations in the yard. Once inside, we were instantly taken by the quaint charm of the well appointed rooms and the lovely decor. The space was terrific and laid out perfectly. The bathroom was spotless, clean, bright and roomy. Mornings and evenings were a pleasure as the water was plenty hot. The dressing room allowed us to store our luggage out of our way and there was plenty of closet space to hang our belongings. As we entered, we were greeted by soft music and a pleasant atmosphere. Surprisingly, the attention to detail was amazing in all respects. Chocolates and lavender on the pillows, a bottle of Chardonnay chilling in the fridge and every detail done to perfection. There was nothing to want for - nothing at all. The wall hangings were so very tasteful and the furniture was comfortable and ample. Outside, the stone patio was our place of respite during mornings and evenings. In the morning, it was shady and perfect for having tea, coffee or even a glass of wine. Evenings on the patio were remarkable as the carefully designed landscape and strategic lighting made for a most peaceful place to just sit and enjoy a glass of wine. Evenings on the patio were some of our favorite times there. Without question, we have never stayed at a place that had more attention to detail than did Le Petite Papillon. There was nothing to want for. The highlight our visit was meeting David and Brenda as we were packing to leave. Finer souls you've never met! After meeting them, we understood their attention to detail and their efforts to make their property the place to be in Carmel. Without hesitation, I recommend Le Petite Papillon and look forward to the day when we return to again enjoy charm, beauty, graciousness and being near such fine people in a beautiful setting. The property is close to town and the location gets one feeling the natural ambiance and beauty of Carmel and the lovely people who live there. Thank you Brenda and David for making us feel like we were living in a fairytale during our time there. May you and your loved ones be blessed and may many others get to know the beauty, peace and tranquility of Le Petite Papillon like we did. See you next time!
