In March of 2011, David A. Moya and his wife Kari, took a trip to San Diego to figure out where they would begin laying their roots as a family.  In search for a place that emphasized family, education and health, they stumbled upon Carmel Valley San Diego and immediately fell in love with the community. Please continue reading below…

As a business-owner, David wanted to show the community that he wasn’t here just to “get business.”  He wanted to demonstrate his commitment to his new community by giving first, and by becoming a more vested community member.  The best way David thought he could accomplish this and simultaneously get to know Carmel Valley, was to interview, blog and write about the people, businesses, events and activities that took place in the community.  After some time, his efforts began to catch the interest of several individuals and he was approached by some of them to see how they could get involved.  He realized then that this had the potential to be bigger than just a blog, and that this wasn’t something that only he had a passion for.  It turned out that the entire community was hungry for an opportunity to create a greater sense of community from the inside out.

Imagine if we could create a place where the community could 1) share stories that inspire, 2) create projects that bring the community together to demonstrate compassion, and 3) unite in joint efforts to create an even better community to serve as an example to the rest of the Country. That is what Carmel Valley Life is all about.

The belief is that the more connected a community is, the better quality of life it can provide its members, and the stronger it will become as a whole.

Carmel Valley is located in Northern San Diego and is situated in a area that allows for its residents a coastal living lifestyle.  Literally minutes away from some of the most beautiful beaches in California, Carmel Valley is a great place to not only spend your summers but to live year round.  There is no other comparison to the days that are spent working, living and playing in our community and if you talk to any local resident, they will tell you that this place is a great place to raise a family.  The community is known for some of the best schools in the Nation, and for active lifestyles.

It is comprised of commercial buildings, residential units and other business buildings including restaurants and hotels.   Carmel Valley offers a diverse environment and people.   The history of its name and location stems back to the Carmelite Sisters of Mercy, who established and ran a dairy farm and monastery in the early 1900′s.

As a community, we invite you to come experience Carmel Valley San Diego and become a part of our story and movement.
