About Dave Robertson

Fast Fowarding to the Past in an Off the Grid state of mind. Less is More.

From El Toro Ca family from South Dakota. Went to USC Entrepreneur program started Dynamic Medical Systems and exited to unplug and be a family man.

Having little appetite for the stock market I went from San Diego to the Central Coast looking for acreage. Once I found this land it made it was an easy decision nothing compared.

Next door to Hearst Castle, great microclimate, no airplanes, no oil rigs, largest ocean reserve on Earth, easy to get there and a great drive to arrive. Wanted to do an experiential Farm/ forest to fork and started and put our flagship restaurant bar,market, wedding venue, below these places on the water and have been told the best properrty in is humbling and hard to reconcile.

Knowing about distribution it made no sense why tomatoes are shippped to countires while we buy them from the same country~ reduce food miles = less need to fighting over energy/ resources. Don't like consumerism everyone works too much and it is avoidable.

There are no such things as droughts although I do love dry humor.

Music:

70's best era in music ,but an 80's kid. The Cult, Billy Idol 2 best from the 80's in my opinion. Whodini most underrated OG hip hop. Kings of Leon, Bob Marley are staples. Every band should have both a male and female vocalists. I do a lot of free consulting mostly unsolicited✌️

Mexican food my favorite cuisine and Elf is a good lighthearted movie granted about 10 yrs behind on movies.

Life question: How did natives live happily off the land with no commuting, no late fees, deadlines or jobs and how do we integrate a life of enjoyment?

Dave Robertson purchased this estate in 2011

Why Dave Robertson chose Central Coast California

Close enough for a drive to town to enjoy a gourmet meal by the beach yet back in the hills to relish in a quiet natural setting with five star amenities.

The estate has one of kind views of the Central Coast!

Amazing new vacation experience in Central California!

  • 5 of 5

It was amazing new vacation experience in Central California! Pretty much same experience as Hurst family can enjoy. It was a fantastic view and very private location. Shiny stars in the night was very impressive, too. Thank you!

A very special place, no matter where your from.

  • 5 of 5

My family gathered at the Noel property recently for my Father's 80th Birthday. The property allowed all of us to stay in one house which was key. But the location made the gathering exceptional. I would highly recommend the Noel property for any group that simply wants go get away and enjoy nature and each other. Perfect location. We were completely satisfied. Thank you.

Great Family Get Away

  • 5 of 5

We brought our children and grandchildren together for a long Easter weekend. Everyone was taken with the beauty of the property and scenery. There is a lot to do in the area, but we found the property and nearby trails occupied most of our time. Everything was there to prepare meals, seek adventure or just relax. We will definitely return.

Cambria is a small rural town off Highway one that delivers a dream escape for anyone visiting or living in California. The beach is minutes away from anywhere in Cambria and there are plenty of activities and destinations to enjoy. Horseback riding, wine tasting, wildlife viewing and kayaking are some of the numerous favorites this town has to offer. Enjoy the surf during the day, then star gaze out in the country at night; you get the best of both natural worlds.
