About Victoria Rogers

Victoria Rogers, RN, LMT, MA, owns and manages her properties, finding usefulness for a lifetime of professional experiences, too many and numerous to mention. 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 in a historic permanent collection at the New Mexico Museum of Art. Her new book, 'Santa Fe's Historic McKenzie Neighborhood', published in April 2011, is also a fun walking tour guidebook of the area's architecture.

Victoria Rogers purchased this house in 2007

Why Victoria Rogers chose New Mexico

As an artist, I felt fortunate to have such a wonderful downtown lifestyle in the midst of the history and new cultural offerings in Santa Fe. Renovating an adobe structure into a magical guesthouse opened the door to inviting kindred-travelers to experience this extraordinary 'City Different' along with us appreciative residents.

What makes this house unique

A retreat from the world yet a fun walk a couple of blocks through our architecturally interesting neighborhood into town. Great for jumping on a bicycle or as a jumping off spot for daytrips to the explore the magnificent New Mexico landscape. Easy to cook at home or spontaneously head to any number of terrific nearby restaurants and cafes for delicious New Mexican cuisine. Staying cozy in the softly-lit casita, listening to the quiet during siesta or at bedtime. Leaving the car behind when going to a museum, shopping, a meeting at the Convention Center or a performance!

Simply fantastic

  • 5 of 5

First off let me say that Victoria is so great to work with. She was a perfect host all around. The Casita is super cute, and just the right size for a couple. Even in the summer heat, we didn't need any ac as the Casita has great breathability (although Victoria did offer to install ac if needed). The bed, shower, and all other amenities were perfect. If I'm ever able to return to Santa Fe, I will absolutely stay here, and you should too.

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING . . . . . . . . . .

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of spending two whole months in the casita - and what a pleasure it was.

As you can see on this site the casita is artistically furnished - it's hip and groovy - with everything you can possible need. I'd like to write about what you cannot see and that is what you can feel - I was a single woman traveling solo from New York to a town that I had never visited - once there at the casita - I was at home. Located in a safe, quiet and peaceful neighborhood it became more incredible with each day passing. Enjoying morning coffee in bed while gazing out the window at those beautiful blue skies - treated a few times to snow on the coyote fencing. Sunshine entering from the french doors leading out to your private patio - it is picture perfect! I felt safe and so right at home there.

And then there is Victoria - she is terrific. She acted as my private concierge, showering me in five star service with any need, question or concern that I had. With her knowledge of the area I was able to enjoy my two month stay on an even richer basis. The Plaza area is within a five minute walk with so much to see and experience - and such a treat to return home to the casita. It's such a great place!!!

I have to admit this- I was rather sad leaving there but I take such wonderful memories back with me - of Santa Fe, the casita and Victoria!

I highly recommend the casita to anyone who is ready for a lovely experience - with both place and host.

Really a delight

  • 5 of 5

We spent last week in Victoria's casita. It is a lovely place, decorated with a painterly eye, and it has everything needed for a scrumptious stay, including proximity to the plaza and to a major north/south road through town. But more than that, Victoria was gracious and helpful and full of ideas about how to enjoy Santa Fe. She was quick to respond to a special request. We couldn't have had a better time.

Right downtown and quiet too

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I returned to Santa Fe, our favorite destination with a four-night stay here. First time in a HomeAway rental here and we loved it. Nicely appointed, very clean, very quiet and private. So accessible to everything the town has to offer. Great recommendations for restaurants. Very responsive host and good instructions left. Very low maintenance on our part. We felt right at home. Will definitely check out for a return trip.

Best location, quality casita, hospitable hostess

  • 5 of 5

We husband and wife stayed for 4 nights at Biscochito Holiday Casita. We found the room satisfactory, the location quiet and near major attractions, the hostess thoughtful, thorough and hospitable.

Pluses:

1. New and well-kept room, appliances, furniture.

2. Available washer and dryer in the bathroom with HE detergent liquid.

3. Fresh and well-lit room with entrance glass door, a window, and skylights in the kitchen area and bathroom.

4. Clean, well-maintained, fully equipped modern kitchen with sufficient appliances, cookwares, spoons, folks, butter knifes, etc.

5. Walk-up shower.

6. Good-quality and sufficient hangers - both wooden and plastic.

7. Tasteful decor & exceptional space management.

8. Good wifi connection. We had a problem at first, but Victoria & her partner fixed it at once.

9. Exceptional location:

3 blocks to Atrisco Restaurant & Sprout Market, where we ate a delicious New Mexican dinner and grocery shopped on our first night in Santa Fe.

2 blocks to Georgia O'Keeffe Museum and Eldorado Hotel's back door.

1/2 mile walk to the Historic Fort Marcy Park and Cross of the Matyr - beautiful place to hike, watch the sunset and lunar eclipse

5-6 blocks to the Plaza, New Mexican Museum of Art, Palace of the Governors & New Mexican Historic Museum

1/2 - 3/4 mile walk to New Mexico State Capitol and Buchanan Gardens.

1/2 - 3/4 mile walk to Santuario de Guadalupe and Santa Fe Farmers' Market in the Railyard.

2 blocks to the convention center, tourist information office, free community gallery

10. Quiet room on quiet Staab Street in a quiet neighborhood.

11. Exceptional lighting ensemble with dimmers.

12. Private patio with 3 chairs, umbrella and a BBQ.

13. Good-quality bath towels and hand towels

14. 2 comfortable dining bar stools with butt pads.

15. 2 comfortable red leather chairs.

16. Great restaurant recommendations. We enjoyed Atrisco and Il Piatto.

The weather was comfortable in late September - 70 to 85 F during the day and 60 F at night. Thus we did not use the heater or air conditioner and cannot commend on them. We did not watch TV or use the BBQ in the patio, so could not comment on them either.

Minuses that would not take off any stars:

1. Freezer compartment in the fridge did not work well with ice-cream. We stored Haagen Daz and it melted. However, the ice cubes kept their solid shape.

2. The pillows are flat.

All in all, we recommend Victoria Rogers's units.

Sweet little casita near plaza and all.

  • 5 of 5

I had a wonderful 6 night stay at this sweet cozy casita. Its outfitted with everything you would need. The owner was totally responsive to all communication pre-rental making the booking phase very easy. During my stay she make it clear she was available for any needs or questions, however, this was not necessary as everything was as I expected. Bottom line the casita is impeccable. Good to be aware the bathroom is quite small which could be challenging if you are a very large person.
