Memories of a lifetime
We had memories for a lifetime at your house and we are sold on the tempurpedic bed! Again, thank you for providing an experience that we will never forget; one that we were able to share with some of our best friends. Carmel is a charming place that we will always remember.

Our family stayed at Dragonsfyre in May 2009. Not a week goes by that our children and my mother in law do not mention the joyful time we spent there. The house is fabulous, immaculate, well stocked with items one needs on a daily basis and the description pales to describe how peaceful and relaxing the home is. The beds are exceptionally comfortable, the electronic equipment is state of the art, and the gas/wood fireplace was so beautiful, we often dozed in front of the fire. The beach is just blocks away and the owner has anticipated one's every need. The neighbors are absolutely unintrusive. The house is both luxurious and welcoming to a family. We would recommend this spot to anyone. It is close to Carmel, the eateries, shopping, the beach and every local attractions. The kitchen facilities inspire one to bake and cook! The only thing that was a bit negative about our stay was the high clorine smell of the jacuzzi. A small price to pay for a very clean jacuzzi. We would love to return multiple times a year. It is money well spent. It cost less to rent the house, and all its charm, than a less than comporable hotel for over 4 people for the same duration. The owner graciously provided kites, boggie boards, small wetsuits and lots of surprise items that delighted our children, and ourselves. Furthermore, the service was outstanding. I was in a panic when I left my wedding ring behind, I contacted the owner, and he was kind enough to go out and fed. ex. it to me the very next day.We traveled with small children and the house. We arrived late and had difficulty accessing the house. Staff graciously came out and assisted us in the late hours of the evening. This is a vacation spot that should not be passed up!

About the owner: DragonsFyre is my personal retreat to recharge my karma. I love walking my Siberian Husky and enjoying the fresh ocean air in Carmel. There's no better place.
Why the Owner Chose Carmel By the Sea:
DragonsFyre showcases my travels in Tibet, Nepal, Japan, India and throughout South East Asia with my collection of dragons - sculptures, paintings & carvings. This nestled amongst the oak trees is within quick walking distance of the beach & town.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
With the luxury spa under a Japanese pagoda, you can soothe away your aches. Peace at last amongst a serene setting in the rear garden with waterfall, pond and even an arched wooden bridge.
