Del Rey Oaks is a very small community that is in the sunbelt on the coast which is nice. Because of it's small size all of the neighbors are friendly and cordial with one another. We have community BBQ's and yard-sales! The location is also ideal because it's close to main stores, schools, etc nearby. The police officers in Del Rey Oaks are friendly however there was a small period of break ins occurring and wish the police had been more involved. However they are very fast in response when or if needed.

Great place to live. Safe and clean. Nice neighborhoods, with friendly people. Lots of beautiful walking trails.
Del Rey Oaks is a beautiful, safe and lovely place to live with a strong sense of community. It is close to all of the beaches, shopping and restaurants on the Monterey Peninsula.
