About Mila Caceres Schuler

Stan and I have traveled abroad extensively and own a popular Bed and Breakfast in the San Francisco Bay Area. We are very clear on what travelers want when they visit a foreign country and set about to create a space that would provide all the creature comforts we like to be accustomed to while experience the wonders of the city and its history. Our apartment has been completely remodeled and blends modern with antique architecture with elegance and our and your enjoyment and comfort in mind.

Mila Caceres Schuler purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Mila Caceres Schuler chose Recoleta

We came to Argentina to hike in the Patagonia for a month. On our way back home we stopped in Buenos Aires for a few days. I felt like I had come home!. Buenos Aires has the reputation of being the 'most European' city in Latin America...it is that and more. The overlay of Latino energy make this a city that one will never tire of! You have it all here: fun sight seeing, great restaurants, museums, lovely city parks, an exciting art and fashion world, polo, a great old casino, tango ,fun people, street fairs galore and vibrancy found only in the best cities in the world.

What makes this apartment unique

The blend of modern design elements with original turn of the 20th Century Buenos Aires French details enhances the visitors' city experience. Take private tango lessons on the beautifully refurbished wooden pinotea floors! Enjoy a private dinner, if you like, catered in your own elegant dining room. Feel like royalty in your lovely bedroom with marble ensuite bath.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I wish to thank Nancy and all the lovely people who have visited Buenos Aires in the past 2 years and stayed at our property. those of you who posted, I thank you much,a s well as those who sent me your kind notes! It is Martin and my objective to create a space for our guests that enhances their visit to this amazing city. I have had guests who tell us that they don't even want to leave the apartment as they feel so pampered! A tee hee, I am sure, but also a complement. We hope to see you all back again and that all our future guests feel as comfortable and welcome.

Thank you again BA lovers!Your comments make all our work worth while.

Wonderful Elegant Apartment in Recoleta!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was large, elegant, beautiful, and had all the amenities that we could have hoped for. The location is perfect for a short stroll to Recoleta cemetery (a MUST SEE for those who are not familiar) and to the park for the weekend outdoor market. It isn't possible to do the apartment complete justice with photos. It is lovely, well supplied with towels, sheets and blankets, and, as an wonderful benefit, the home is managed by the lovely and invaluable Lucia Voegeli, who was our concierge throughout our stay in BA. She knew all the spots to hit and how to get there, arranged transportation and reservations for restaurants and outings. Plus, she speaks flawless English and Spanish. We wanted to take her home with us.... alas, she has a life in BA...sigh. As an added plus, the kitchen was stocked with juice, milk, coffee and sparkling water upon our arrival, which was super nice since we did not feel like hitting the store after a 13 hour flight! I cannot recommend this apartment highly enough!

Beautiful, comfortable, & an amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't ask for a better stay and a better hostess. Mila, the owner is wonderful and responsive. Everything with her went smoothly. She has a hostess/manager named Lucía, I can't say enough great things about her, she made all arrangements easy, she's quick to respond & attentive. She went above and beyond when arranging a home chef for us. She cares about the property and comfort of the people in it. We actually plan on going back next year because our experience was so exceptional and we hope to stay in this gorgeous Recoleta apartment again.

Thanks for everything!

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

Wonderfully restored and tastefully decorated large apartment. Exactly as the pictures show, although a few pieces of furniture have been reupholstered. Has everything we needed for our stay. And, the people who greeted us and arranged cars were extremely helpful. Tremendous location for walking to most of the major sites. We walked to Museo Evita, Decorative Arts Museum, Museum of Art, Cathedral and Plaza Major, and the Teatro Colon....all within 30-40 minutes. Many restaurants and grocery stores nearby. We would highly recommend staying. We were two couples and each bedroom has ensuite bath. Only thing we found a bit difficult was using the washer dryer combination and its location, which is up a steep flight of stairs.

Luxurious way to live like a local

  • 5 of 5

From the pick up at Aeroparque to the final day of departure, every aspect of our stay at Pecheco de Melo could not have been better. The apartment is huge, beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and perfectly located if you want to experience Buenos Aires as a local. Cafes, restaurants and other shops are within a few minutes walk and the superb Recoleta Mercado is only a 10 minute walk of you want to get things to cook in the apartment. The on site support from the building manager was first rate. When the washing machine didn't;t work, a service man was called AND our clothes were taken to a local laundry to be washed without charge. I can't imagine a better way to enjoy this magnificent city.

Owner's Response: Couldn't be more appreciative for your feed back. I also know it would not be the unique place to best enjoy BA without the amazing property management support and the wonderful energy my guests bring to Pacheco Crystal. Thank you for your visit and your enthusiastic comments! I hope you will some again. Mila
