                                  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.
