About Mila Caceres Schuler

Our family ( 4 generations of Californians) have Northern California in our blood and the natural beauty of Point Reyes draws us together in this little edge of heaven, helping define us as outdoors lovers. We have spent much of our free time in adventure travel throughout the world. In the year 2000 we decided to celebrate by walking across Europe. We started at the North Sea and 4 months and 1,100 miles later found ourselves in Geneve. Traveling on remote pathways we stayed at countless vacation homes and bed and breakfasts. It was with that experience in mind that we designed One Mesa for short and extended stays. Our hope is that our guests will feel that our lovely home provides them the comfort and beauty that makes this the spot you will always come back.

Mila Caceres Schuler purchased this house in 1979

Why Mila Caceres Schuler chose San Francisco Bay Area

We discovered the wonder of Point Reyes over 30 years ago when we would come to the Pt Reyes National Sea Shore to be in nature and get away from the city on weekends. We fell in love with this amazing corner of the world, with its little village, surrounded by a wild and natural beauty that is hard to believe is so close to a metropolitan center. This is a perfect place to walk,hike,bike, do photography,horseback ride, kayak,paint,read, write or just plain BE. A great vacation spot for nature lovers and those wanting easy access to places like San Francisco, Napa,and Sonoma, while being in a quiet world away from the 'maddening crowd'.

What makes this house unique

This lovely Mesa Road house, behind an electric gate, is on the sunny Pt Reyes mesa, is so centrally located that you can walk to town, drive 5 miles up to Marshall for a quick Kayak, an oyster or two on the Bay or pop over (National Park HQ 2 miles away) to the National Sea Shore Park for an all day hike...or just sit on the decks, in the gardens and enjoy the sky, the birds and the hot tub right without leaving the property! The deer do come right into the back field and the occasional bobcat has been seen prowling about. We spot Hawk and other feathered friends just sitting still.

Beautiful quaint house, expansive gardens and lots of relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Mila has a beautiful house, and a large garden that offered the perfect "disconnect and relax" vacation to four of us (two kids and daddy, mommy). She connected via phone and email whenever we had questions and offered us help along the way. There was a pleasant surprise waiting as we entered the kitchen first time!

We enjoyed the vacation (hot tub, books, wine, hiking -- just plain old good time) but it was doubly great seeing kids have so much fun with water. Mila recommended Hearts Desire beach - about 20 min away. It was a big hit with the little ones. They had a ball, and dragged us there even on the day we left :-)

The hardest part of such vacations is coming back from it. We miss Pt Reyes Station and would go back there again in future.

We were in town for a wedding in Sonoma. I thought it might be a bit too far to drive, but the drive was easy, winding and beautiful. But the main story is the house and it was everything I hoped for. Enough room for anyone to do what they wanted, everything you needed to prepare meals, it was clean and neat, there were interesting pieces from the owners travels (?) around the house that made it feel unique and special. The beds were comfortable, the outside gardens were gorgeous, the surrounding area was so quiet that you could sleep as long as you wanted/needed (jet lag). If I'm ever in the area again, I would stay at this property. You can't go wrong here!

This is a really nice house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed our 5 night stay in this house. It is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The location is perfect for exploration of the Point Reyes area. It has an amazing garden, almost like a botanical garden, filled with all kinds of flowering plants. My adult "kids" enjoyed the hot tub. Many thanks to Mila for her hospitality!

Wonderful stay. Lovely home

  • 5 of 5

The owner was flexible and the house was beautiful and comfortable. There are a number of minor quirks that require attention to detail re use of shades, showers, screens etc so need to be willing to be attentive.

Beautiful and Comfortable Home. Perfect Spot a Walk Away from Downtown Pt. Reyes

  • 5 of 5

I just spent a wonderful weekend with 6 girlfriends at Mila's home in beautiful Pt. Reyes. We arrived to a welcome cheese and cracker assortment and immediately settled into Mila's warm hospitality. Her home is a perfect spot for a weekend of outdoor activities followed by wonderful happy hours after a great day of exercise or in-town activities. The dining table and living room area is perfect and for any communal gathering after a day spent enjoying our amazing northern coastline. I would personally like to thank Mila for prompt answers to my pre-visit inquiries and a few while at her home. I highly recommend this location (it was actually my second stay) and will return again in the future.

Pleas do come back...mi Casa es su Casa!

Beauty, comfort, and tranquillity

  • 5 of 5

We love this beautiful home and garden. The house is spacious, well appointed, and comfortable. Every time we have come, the place is impeccably clean and there is a welcoming assortment of cheese and crackers in the refrigerator. The garden is lovely in all seasons and provides a tranquil shelter and amazing privacy. The deck is delightful, overlooking a shallow valley with hills rising to the east. I am not a hot tub user, but I've been told that it is excellent!

The location is terrific - just off Highway 1 (but far enough off that there is no noise from highway traffic) and an easy walk to Pt Reyes Station, a charming small town with a terrific bookstore, an excellent bakery, grocery shopping, post office, and a number of good restaurants and a variety of shops. Pt Reyes National Seashore is practically at your doorstep, so there are many wonderful walks and vistas to explore. We've been there in rain and shine, and have always loved it!
