“Memorial Stay”

Reviewed 11 Jun 2016

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.

Owner's reply: Glad you had a wonderful time at DragonsFyre. Come back soon!

"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 in your package and agreement 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
