About Paul Falworth, 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.

Paul Falworth, Owner purchased this house in 1999

Why Paul Falworth, Owner chose Carmel

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Highly reccomend this home!

  • 5 of 5

We rented DragonsFyre this year and truly enjoyed our time there. The exterior gardens and plantings are very well done-wonderful back yard with hot tub, gas grill, fire pit (wood provided), very cool zen décor AND a fire breathing dragon!

Easy walking to both the ocean and town-walked to and from dinner each night. The inside was very clean and the beds comfortable. Kitchen was well stocked with all dinner/cookware. The owner is a seasoned renter with many notes posted to help with any questions and there is a manager that was excellent. We would definitely recommend this home. This is our first time not renting on the ocean as this year we could only come for a week-it was very nice being in the cute little neighborhood-very nice neighbors across the street-didn't miss the beach and cars parked in front of our house all day everyday.

Beautiful, peaceful, luxurious property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here prior to the Pebble Beach Golf Tournament. We didn't need our car the entire time. Everday we walked down to the beach and over to the village for newspapers, restaurants, and site-seeing. The kitchen is well appointment and all the appliances were easy to use. The backyard and spa were wonderful. We'll be back again. We've rested lots of vacation homes through the years and this is by far one of our favorites.

Beyond Compare

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!
