About Lachlan Ian MacTavish
Cambria has always been our favorite vacation spot. We have rented only the best homes here for years and have now purchased a truly unique property and transformed it into what we feel is now Cambria's finest and most luxurious ocean view vacation rental property.
Lachlan Ian MacTavish purchased this House in 2012
Why Lachlan Ian MacTavish chose Cambria
Luxurious, private, magnificent ocean views from every room, situated on 4 acres, secure, modern, high-end amenities, minutes from town and only a 5-minute walk to Moonstone Beach. .
What makes this House unique
Life at Casa Pelicano: Shoot a game of pool, stroll on Moonstone Beach, curl up with a good book in front of a fireplace or simply watch the deer and wild turkeys in the yard. At the end of day, enjoy a glass of wine in our rooftop turret with panorama ocean and sunset views.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Great Place for 3 Couples
Six of us stayed here to celebrate my husband's birthday. The kitchen was well stocked, including oils, spices, sugar, salt, food processor, coffee pot, etc... The front patio was really nice - we even moved the chairs over to play Corn Hole (which we brought) on the patio. Easy walk to the Sea Chest if you want to go out for dinner. The rooms are all excellent, just what the pictures show. I'd love to come back!
81st Birthday Celebration Trip
This home is beautiful, comfortable and in a completely peaceful area blocks from the ocean. You hear the waves crashing as you cuddle up near the fireplaces. Billiards for the guys was such fun with lots of jokes and good fun for all 6 of us. Had a blast and would recommend this to all. Thank you so much!
You were wonderful guests.....please come and visit again.

A Villa Paradise found in Cambria!
This is our second stay at Casa Pelicano and we can not rave any more of how much we love this home. Location, privacy and amazing for our classic cars. The home is well stocked for everything you need to entertain at home. We had fun this time seeing the wild turkey and fox just outside our window. Thank you for sharing your lovely home! We cannot wait to return next year!
Excellent property for family and friends in Cambria, Handicap accessible too!
We came to Cambria for the Eroica California 2019 vintage bike ride & Casa Pelicano was the perfect home for our family of 5 + a nurse caretaker. The house is expansive, warm & inviting, and exudes quality & thoughtful touches throughout. It immediately felt like our Cambria home. We stayed a full week.
CP sits at the end of long secluded driveway & has two paths up to the entrance. The exterior is well lit for safety. Underneath is a deep four space garage . The kitchen is very modern & well equipped with all kinds of cookware & appliances, coffeemakers & serving ware.. The fridge & pantry are well stocked with most condiments, spices, & general supplies, plus a Brita filtered water pitcher & icemaker.
The living / dining room is HUGE & comfy. The WiFi is fast & the audio / visual system works great but have Lachlan (manager) explain how to work it. Oddly, some channels like Disney Jr. come in fine in HD on the other room TV systems but in SD (480i) on the main system & look a bit fuzzy - Lachlan is working on it. Otherwise Blu-Rays play nicely & clear. Lots of room to rest, relax or work. Patios off the kitchen & dining room / Master BR gave a great view of the treeline & coastal surf sounds were very relaxing. There is view of Hwy 1 + a little traffic noise but easily ignored.
The master BR / bathroom is fabulous & quiet with a large walk in closet. The two other bedrooms are good sized & comfortable. All beds and linens were very comfortable. The Billiard room is large & the table plays easily. Each of the above rooms has its own Flatscreen TV.
The tower off the entry was a delight - high views of the surrounding landscape, coast & ocean off the balcony, quiet & well lit for reading & rest, plus excellent WiFi streaming reception. Open the doors for breeze & surf.
My handicapped daughter uses a power wheelchair and she had no problems getting in or out & moving around inside. There are no steps on entry & door/hallways are easy to traverse except for the one step down to the billiard room. The Northeast bedroom has sufficient space underneath to allow a patient lift for assisting getting in & out of bed - note that all beds are relatively high so that could be a challenge for some. Very few homes in Cambria are handicap accessible due to age & style of entry/construction.
A wonderful home stay & we'll certainly be back again. Lachlan is a great & responsive manager, in touch all the way. 5 Stars!
Beautiful home, grounds and space. This is our second time staying here and it works for three couples perfectly.
