DragonsFyre Guest Comments

"5 STARS: Gem tucked in the heart of Carmel-by-the-Sea. We rented DragonsFyre during the Pebble Beach Pro Am! What a great choice. Location was perfect, we were able to walk to the beach, shops & restaurants (lots of nice hills to push our stroller around!!) and onto the 10th fairway access during the golf tournament. Beds were comfy & linens were great! Perk to have laundry facilities in the home. Kitchen was fully equipped. THE BACKYARD IS AWESOME! We wished it hadn't rained so we could have used it more but even in the stormy weather Carmel is beautiful. Our kids loved the twin beds & sharing a room with the decorative lizards (!!!), too." HH

"We want to thank you for your thoughtful attention to detail, it truly made our stay memorable! We had a wonderful time and things couldn't have been better. The dogs especially liked the accommodations, the dog bowls and dog beds and they really loved running on the beach, we know they will miss Carmel as much as we will. It was so nice to be able to have our faithful companions with us. Thank you!" JLW

"Thank you for letting us rent  DragonsFyre. Your place is absolutely incredible! The backyard was where we spent most of our time. Drako, your fire breathing dragon, ended up doing quite a show for us. Even the fish got more comfortable with us as they would not swim off when we checked on them. I think they got the idea where the food was coming from. We cooked dinner every night at the house. Your dishes are beautiful and the cookware excellent. Your written information was also very helpful." DF

"We have been reliving our wonderful time in Carmel and stay in your home, 'DragonsFyre'. It was the perfect way to celebrate our 25th Anniversary. We have been raving about your home to our family and friends since returning. We took delight in discovering the many interesting and unique items of décor in every room as well as outdoors. There was always something new to appreciate. We found your thorough description, many photos, and other detailed information, both on your website and in your package and contract to be very helpful. We also appreciated the many extra, "luxe" touches that were unexpected such as cozy bathrobes, high quality linens and comfortable bed, cedar dresser drawers, bouquet of roses and Ferrero Rocher chocolates. These certainly help renters feel like privileged guests! The location of your home is so ideal - close to downtown and the ocean. And it was so quiet!! Living on a country property, we are accustomed to total silence and are often bothered by town/city noises. Not so in your neighbourhood! "KW

"Paul, we had a wonderful time at your spot! Drako was a hit! We walked to dinner and the beach every day, the weather was fabulous-played lots of golf and were so happy to come home to a truly comfortable house! Your back yard is really well done and beautiful!! Backyard-grill, hot tub and fire pit!  Loads of fun!! Thanks again Paul! Hopefully we will be back at DragonsFyre again!!" JS

"We loved the firepit and the hot tub and appreciated the awesome wifi and well stocked kitchen. Great location and neighborhood, only five minutes from the beach." JT

"We had a great stay and would love to return  - you had everything we needed even for a 2yr old." EH

"Thank you for DragonsFyre. It is a fabulous home in a wonderful community and I can't imagine a better place to stay!" SD

"We had a wonderful stay at Dragonsfyre. It was a lovely home in a perfect location to walk to downtown Carmel and to the beach! The home is perfectly maintained with everything you need to feel right at home. The kitchen was stocked with plenty of spices, pots, pans and cooking essentials. I really appreciated that since I love to cook for my family and friends. The hot tub was fabulous with lots of heat and great jets. The ambiance outdoors was just as pictured and was so inviting. I would recommend this property to anyone who wants a perfect vacation in Carmel." KW

"Thank you so much for creating a fantastic vacation home! We all enjoyed the artwork and statuary and had fun locating all the dragons lurking in the house and on the grounds! The neighborhood was very quiet and the people we met during our walks to the beach and town were all very friendly. We did ask several local merchants if they knew who Jane Powers was and how she managed to have a walkway named for her, but no one could provide an answer. Can you? [Jane Powers was Carmel's first artist-in-residence.] Our daughter and son-in-law enjoyed the house as well and we all left on Sunday rather reluctantly and said we would most definitely stay again at Dragonsfyre." JMAW

"Thanks, Paul. Enjoyed the stay very much. DragonsFyre is my first choice on where to stay in Carmel!!" SD

"We will always keep DragonsFyre in mind for future visits.  Thank you for sharing your vacation home with us through the years. We loved every stay." LC

"Thank you for having such a wonderful place in an amazing location in CA. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, cooked in rather than eating out much. We felt very much at home. My daughters loved the hot tub, and one was busy sketching your various dragons! Our Shepherd loves to run free on the beach and in the surf. Thank you for the outside shower with hot water. Came in handy every day! We brought our own big supply of beach towels for drying. It truly was a very nice experience.  We do hope to reserve future time at DragonsFyre." RW

"We loved DragonsFyre! So peaceful and beautifully decorated. And we certainly got our money's worth from the hot tub! I'm sure we will return." MD

"The best compliment I can give you is that within 10 minutes of arrival, Dragonsfyre felt like home. Thank you for this little gem Paul." KM

"Thanks very much for the opportunity to stay in your beautiful home in Carmel again. We had a wonderful time." NT

"We really loved that everything was thought of! Traveling with little ones and a dog isn't easy and it was so great everything was provided! The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to cook Thanksgiving! We especially appreciated the extra blankets. And, the room darkening window treatments in the bedrooms! We really enjoyed the backyard garden and hot tub. We loved having fires and not having to worry about going out to hunt for where it would be sold! We were so happy for the stocked kitchen! We cooked thanksgiving and everything we needed was there, down to the spices, veggie peeler, and turkey baster. Thanks for a great place to stay!!! Our toddler gave each dragon a name and called them the protectors of the house ;) So beautiful, and cozy too! Hope to be back soon! Thanks again!" LS

"My mom and I enjoyed our stay at DragonsFyre. It was the best place we have rented during our annual Carmel vacations. I found all the decorations/artifacts very interesting to look at. The living room furniture and bed were very comfortable. The backyard was amazing - we ate some meals outside when the weather permitted.  It was so relaxing listening to the water fountain. I never had a chance to use the hot tub, maybe next time. A truly special home - expertly decorated, complete with top-of-the-line appliances. I would love to return to DragonsFyre in the future. 
Thank you"

"We had a fantastic stay and we really appreciated the house. We enjoyed ourselves immensely. It's a remarkable and wonderful rental. We appreciated being able to share it." GP
