LOW HOA & MELLO-ROOS FEES

Low HOA fees and enough units in the complex to weather any storm. The Heights at Carmel Valley benefits from "power in numbers" with 225 units in the complex when and if a roof system needs to be replaced, or walls need to be re stuccoed or balcony wrought iron needs to be repainted, the more units you have in your HOA complex the more mild the special assessment will be when and if one is needed beyond the available reserves.

 

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION

SHOPPING

The Heights at Carmel Valley is literally right in the middle of it all.  It is perfectly equidistant between three of the most dynamic shopping centers in Carmel Valley:  Del Mar Highlands Town Center (directions)One Paseo (directions) and Piazza Carmel (directions).

 

RECREATION

The Heights at Carmel Valley is only a 5-10 minute walk to the Carmel Mission Park (directions), Carmel Creek Neighborhood Park (directions), Carmel Grove Park (directions), the Carmel Valley Recreation Center (community center, tennis and basketball courts, and a swimming pool) (directions) and the Carmel Valley Library (directions).

 

CLUSTERED UNITS

Camino Villas benefits from 8 (4 units up and 4 units down) and 12 (6 up and 6 down) unit buildings ensuring the most longevity since there is really only one roof and only four vertical walls to be maintained.  Some Carmel Valley condo complexes are spread out (e.g. Cambria and Pacifica) ensuring more needed maintenance and much higher replacement costs while other Carmel Valley condo complexes are plagued by eccentric architectural styles that create a need for much more maintenance than any other complexes (e.g. flat roofs, larger balconies, architectural pop-outs, exterior staircases with too many landings, etc). elements.

 

A VILLAGE-LIKE CHARM

Camino Villa's has a village-like feel with the neighbors up and down.  It's always nice to know that there is someone nearby when and if you need help, some eggs or a spoonful of sugar.  The thoughtful design of each building ensures that you are never too far away from a neighbor in a time of need.  The comfort and security are one of the hallmarks in purchasing a condo in a Carmel Valley condo complex.

 

UP OR DOWN FLOOR PLANS

Ground-level entry and single-level floor plans.  While some may relish the fitness challenge, many of us do not want to have to walk up and down stairs too often over a certain age.  Camino Villas offer the rare and unique single-level floor plan with a ground-level entry. For many this ease of entry for coming and going is exactly what they want.

 

GARAGES

Not all units within The Heights at Carmel Valley are equal, especially when it comes to garages. Some units have attached garages, some have detached garages and some do not have garages.
