About Del Mesa
Del Mesa Carmel (DMC) was planned and started in 1967 by founders who envisioned a premier retirement community for active adults. Our location on a hillside above the Carmel River Valley and just east of Carmel-by-the-Sea provides a unique blend of sunshine from the valley and cooling sea breezes from the ocean for our 289 condominium homes.
In keeping with the vision of an active adult community, DMC offers its residents a superior level of home and landscape maintenance services. This allows residents to be homeowners and yet have plenty of time for their favorite sports, fitness, travel and social activities. An on-site restaurant provides dine in and take out options, but DMC does not offer any kind of assisted-living services.
Del Mesa Carmel Community Association, Inc., is incorporated in as a Nonprofit Mutual Benefit Corporation under the laws of the State of California. Its Board of Directors has responsibility for shepherding the Association and governing DMC according to the Declarations (CC&Rs), Bylaws, and Ground Rules. The Board employs a General Manager to manage DMC's employees and oversee daily operations. The Board works with the accounting staff and General Manager in preparing yearly budgets, managing expenditures, reviewing bids and contracts, and keeping a close eye on finances. The Board and GM are responsible for watching condominium industry trends and evaluating new laws that could require changes thus ensuring our compliance and avoiding liabilities.
