ARTISTS HOME DOWNTOWN VERY CLOSE TO GEORGIA O'KEEFFE MUSEUM AND PLAZA

Santa Fe House Rental Photos and Description

2-plus Bedrooms / Great for 1-4 Guests

(Note: Be sure to make VRBO and HomeAway 'not junk' in your email to get my reply!)

CALL, TEXT OR EMAIL for PERSONALIZED QUOTE. Rates range from $175-$345/night adjusted by # of guests/season when rented as a one, two or (with the twin in a room adjoining the king) three bedroom. Two couples? Three singles? A couple and two singles? Comfortable for all sorts of combinations.

Just before New Year 2010, the Biscochito House was recreated from an artist couple's residence and gallery into an ideal vacation residence only 3 short blocks from Santa Fe's downtown Plaza. And it just gets better every year. Quality and attention have been placed into every detail of comfort, convenience and pleasure, pairing with the quiet, private and historic neighborhood for guest hospitality.

One bedroom has a gorgeous queen bed, leather arm chair, antique bureau and excellent closet space. The romantic second bedroom with king bed also has tasteful appeal with complementary furnishings and museum-collected artwork. Adjoining the king bedroom is a jewel-like twin bedroom with hand-painted armoir and small TV to create a total of 3 separate sleeping beds or a spot for a nap. Fresh with fluffy towels and stunning tile, the Jack 'n Jill bathroom between the queen and king bedrooms offers a tub/shower. The house sleeps 4 (or 5 considered).

The light-filled open living room and dining room design invite at-home relaxation with adjustable mood lighting. Up to 6 chairs fit around a long country-style dining table and there is a convenient desk for laptop use with a standing lamp. Watch a movie on the 32' Preferred Cable//DVD flat screen TV or - depending on the season - swing on the front portal porch swing, stretch out on the lounge chair by the grapevines while food is browning on the back patio barbecue, or gaze into the crackling wood burning brick fireplace. Ahhh - the fragrance of pinon - your first log set-up is free!

The kitchen has everything you need - gas stove/oven, microwave, full-sized refrigerator, D/W plus coffeepot (and complimentary specialty welcome coffee), toaster, blender, colorful plates, wine goblets, and - yes - a full set of stainless pots and pans, cutlery ... it's all there! And a full-size washer and dryer (W/D) with laundry supplies, too.

Park your car safely beside the house. In fact, park 2-3 cars, if need-be. You may be driving off for day trips, but otherwise, those cars might just sit there while you walk to fabulous nearby restaurants, the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum (2 blocks), Fine Art Museum or New Mexico History Museum 3 blocks), or for groceries or movies or performances at The Lensic or to attend an event at the Santa Fe Community Convention Center just up the street (one block).

Other amenities: Free high-speed wifi, A/C in bedrooms and kitchen that cools the house nicely augmented by ceiling fan and portables for heatwaves. Assistance with planning and recommendations (especially for restaurants, museums and music) by the owner/manager - a professional and resident in Santa Fe for 35 years. Exceptional and timely massage available by a Nationally Certified massage therapist (your hostess!) makes your vacation a retreat or enjoy a private artist studio tour by arrangement. (see art tabs at http://www.victoria-rogers.com). Guesthouse available for rental for 2 additional guests.

Victoria Rogers owns and manages her properties finding usefulness for a lifetime of professional experiences, too many and numerous to mention (see http://www.victoria-rogers.com)! Bringing beauty to the environment, love to the people and happiness to the experience is her specialty, and meeting guests who expect less but get so much more gives her pleasure. She was entranced by New Mexico in 1979 and since then, has had a romance with the land and the culture that is wonderful to share with new discoverers of the region. Her photography is permanently archived at the New Mexico Museum of Art. In April 2011, her book 'Santa Fe's Historic McKenzie Neighborhood' was published with history and original artwork of the architecture of the area where the casita is located. Victoria is also a jazz concert presenter in Santa Fe, Albuquerque and Taos. Ask about the concert schedule!

Victoria Rogers purchased this house in 2007

As an artist, I felt fortunate to have such a wonderful downtown lifestyle living in this house in the midst of the history and new cultural offerings in Santa Fe. When the time came to move elsewhere for more studio space, I enjoyed the creative opportunity to make a special home for visitors to have this unique experience. Since the sweet guesthouse had already been named the Biscochito Holiday Casita, I called this the Biscochito House. The biscochito is New Mexico's State Cookie, served for special occasions!

Walking into town for a stroll on a Summer's eve or when snowflakes are falling, spontaneously stopping into a cafe for delicious New Mexican cuisine just a couple of blocks away, snuggling up in the living room in front of the fabulous fireplace while fragrant pinon is burning, relaxing on the porch swing, listening to the quiet during siesta or at bedtime, not having to get parking when going to a nearby museum, restaurant or performance. Finding out about Santa Fe and receiving a massage from the owner (a retired RN in private massage therapy practice more than 16 years).

Was wonderful home. Nicely appointed & clean. Close to Hist Square. Roomy. Really decorated nicely. Everything expected was provided. TV sound not working well is only negative. Owner was very helpful. Reasonably priced.

Owner's Response: Nice to read the wonderful comments, thanks! Since the TV has always worked beautifully, we were curious to have a look after receiving this review. We found all the settings had been changed from pressing buttons on the remotes, including the one that is required to keep the proper cable connection (the TV needs to be set to Channel 3 so the Comcast cable channels can connect properly and it was on Channel 8). We reset to the original settings so the picture again fills the screen and the sound has the full range of volume. All is well. Just another trip through the challenges presented by technology in our world today! I encourage guests to be sure to contact me during your stay as needed so everything continues to work as it is meant to do. Happy guests, happy owner.

We had a lovely stay at the "Artists Home." The house is located in a very quiet neighborhood within a couple blocks of downtown which made it convenient for us. Although it was quiet chilly during our visit, we frequently walked to the plaza and museums during the day, and in the evening to restaurants for dinner.
We have been visiting Santa Fe for over 30 years and have stayed in many places. This home is now at the top of our list as a favorite place to stay.
PS - The bed is very comfy too!

Cozy, comfy, close to everything!

My mother and I stayed here for eight nights while in Santa Fe. Victoria, the owner, was on site to welcome us in spite of the delays we incurred at the airport. The pictures reflect exactly what you get: two very comfortable bedrooms, a well equipped kitchen and a cozy living room with a fireplace. Victoria left us a fair provision of wood to get us started but we ended up buying wrapped logs for the remainder of our stay. Everything you wish to see, do, eat is within walking distance. Grocery stores (Sprouts and Albertson's) also nearby. The house is also conveniently located near all major highways, making it easy to get out of town for day trips to Tent Rocks, Bandelier, Taos, etc...
A little gem of a rental!

Lovely Private Home for Santa Fe Visit

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriend and I recently spent a wonderful week in Santa Fe. It was our 5th trip to this great city, and it was made even better by staying at a private home vs. a hotel. The home is lovely, cozy & so convenient to the Plaza. It addition, it has a porch for morning coffee and a pretty backyard for relaxing after a busy day of shopping and sightseeing. Finally, Victoria is a wonderful hostess. Please consider her home next time you’re planning a trip to Santa Fe! Thank you, Victoria!

Another wonderful stay at the Biscochito House.

  • 5 of 5
This was the 2nd time I've stayed at Victoria's bungalow. If felt like coming home for a week in Santa Fe. The house is spotless and has everything you need. All we had to pick up were our groceries. There is a Sprouts just aroung the corner. In a nutshell the house and the neighborhood is so close to the Plaza but is a peaceful place to unwind after sightseeing, shopping, hiking, etc. My favorite spot is probably the front porch though if I visited in the winter months I can see enjoying the warmth of the fireplace. Opening the windows in the dining room for meals was also enjoyable. Victoria is a wonderful hostess and is as near or far as you need her to be. We have our favorite restaurants which are many of Victoria's though she told us about a new French Cafe (I forgot the name but it's on her list) it is a new must do and right up the street. I have been visiting Santa Fe for 15 years and not one hotel compares to the Biscochito House. The pictures are very accurate in the listing but being there is even better. All the sunflowers in August make me smile. Just writing this review makes me look forward to my next visit. All the best Victoria!

I lo ved my week stay at this lovely house. It was so clean and well organized with such a comfortable bed. One of the things I loved the most was the wonderful front porch, so great to relax after a full day at Indian Market. I would recommend this lovely home to anyone. Thank you, Victoria.
