Le Petite Papillon is a perfect place to stay in Carmel. We had a wonderful time in beautiful Carmel and at the surrounding sites. Brenda & David went out of their way to welcome us and to make sure everything was in order. It was easy because you can tell they have put a lot of effort into making sure their place is well stocked and delivered with loads of TLC! 5 stars+!

Cozy and cute stay in Carmel! Fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved staying at Le Petite Papillon. It is truly walking distance to and from the village in Carmel by the Sea which was an important feature for us. It is clear that the Mauldwins take much pride in the space. It is well appointed and they have truly thought of everything you could need when away from home. From a bottle of wine upon arrival, to oatmeal, coffee, creamer, waters and other beverages, we loved not having to stock up at a convenience store for things such as that. We hope to be back soon and would definitely stay here again. Thank you!

We're not sure we want to tell everyone how ABSOLUTELY PERFECT Le Petite Papillon was -because we may never be able to get a reservation there again!!

I fell in love with the little studio and it's rustic French garden as soon as we pulled into the driveway. It was like slipping into a magazine photo -- just what you'd hope for on a trip to rural France. Once inside, we knew we would be comfortable there. Every need was thoughtfully seen to. We just dropped our things, grabbed a glass of wine, plopped down on the sofa with a view of the lovely garden and started one of the most memorable vacations we've ever had.

The hosts, Brenda and David, were perfect and sneaky.... we found a bottle of wine and a welcome letter on our bistro table when we arrived, and a tiny cake to celebrate our wedding anniversary appeared mysteriously on our step one evening. Just the kind of sneaky I like.

Loved it!!

Amazing Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you David & Brenda for sharing your beautiful little cottage. It is obvious you have put thought into every detail to give your guests an experience above and beyond expectations. We enjoyed sitting on the front patio watching the birds and squirrels in the lovely garden. Thank you for the dining recommendations that were fantastic. My husband and I truly had a wonderful relaxing weekend and we hope to come stay with you again someday.
