We are pleased to suggest the following properties in Southern California, the Central Coast, and Wine Country.

Nestled in the sparkling golden sand of Coronado beach in sunny San Diego, Beach Village at The Del offers luxury beachfront accommodations and personalized service. 

This Spanish Colonial Hacienda-inspired enclave Rancho Valencia Resort and Spa has 49 private, luxuriously-appointed, individually heated and cooled guest casitas with spacious patios and fireplaces situated across 45 acres of lush gardens and citrus groves offering space, privacy, and comfort of your own coastal ranch. 

Carmel Valley Ranch has always been an escape with plenty of room to roam, to explore, to discover. Where people rekindle romances, reunite with friends and family, revive spirits, or simply get away and play. And these days, play is more important than ever.

High atop the cliffs of Big Sur, 1200 feet above the Pacific Ocean, sits Post Ranch Inn, a sanctuary for the soul. Ideal for romance, relaxation or rejuvenation, this Big Sur resort is the ultimate destination for a luxurious escape. 

The 50 freestanding guest lodges at Calistoga Ranch embrace the natural surroundings of our peaceful canyon while following the twists and turns of a rock-hewn stream on the valley floor. You and your family will feel right at home at this Auberge Resort.

Farmhouse Inn by its nature is an intimate hotel in a remote, naturally beautiful, rural setting. The resort is situated on 10-acres in Forestville, Sonoma County, surrounded by rolling vineyards, the Russian River, the mighty redwood forests and 450 wineries traipsing across a picturesque countryside and back roads.


“Think of it as a little portal for your dreams,” says Virtuoso Chief Executive Officer and Chairman Matthew Upchurch 

"If a bucket list is what people want to do before they die, a Wanderlist focuses them on how they want to live.”

Use the Wanderlist online tool to begin organizing your travel dreams.

Owner, Certified Travel Agent

Heather Schuyler is a native to the Santa Barbara area, born and raised in the beach-side town of Carpinteria.  She attended the University of Southern California, graduating with her Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology with plans of becoming a physical therapist.  Two backpacking trips, through Europe and Africa, and a few twists and turns of life later, the travel industry beckoned.  In 2003, armed only with her backpacking experience and a passion for traveling the world, Heather joined the ranks of Robertson International Travel Consultants.  Under the mentorship of Brian Robertson, she was taught the travel business from the ground up.   In November of 2013, in recognition of her ten year anniversary with the agency, Heather was named Managing Partner and in August of 2017 took over ownership of Robertson Travel.


In the sixteen years since starting her career in the travel industry, and just twenty-one years after her own international traveling began, Heather has touched 6 continents and over 35 countries.  Her experience of travel styles ranges from backpacking and hostels to luxury cruises and 5-star hotels. Heather is drawn to destinations of stunning natural beauty (Alaska, Patagonia and the South Pacific) and culture (India, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia).  Her love of active, adventure and eco-travel has taken her biking across New Zealand, heli-hiking in the Canadian Rockies, and sailing aboard expedition ships through Costa Rica, the Galapagos and the Peruvian Amazon.  She has been on safari in both East and South Africa, and set out into Northern Canada on a Polar Bear Expedition.  She has explored holiday markets along the Danube river, meandered through the English Countryside, yachted through the Greek Isles and most recently spent her honeymoon in Fiji.  

Heather’s strengths lie in her absolute attention to detail, her passion for travel, and her desire to create memorable experiences for her clients.  She, along with the Robertson Team, continue to work closely together to provide the very best in service and expertise in travel planning for their clients.

Travel Associate

Stacey is the newest member of our team! She is a travel enthusiast and a professional photographer. 

Stacey has always been curious about people, their stories, and about places she has never been to before. As a photographer, she primarily focuses on people. She says that portraiture provides her with a powerful opportunity for total strangers to share some of their life stories with her. Stacey’s other passion is travel. She possesses a wanderlust to experience new places and cultures. One might describe her approach as “look, listen, learn, and love” because no matter where she travels, she develops a deep respect for the people she encounters and inevitably falls in love with the places she explored. 

As a travel advisor, she enjoys helping clients have experiences where they too fall in love with the people they met and the places they visited.
