Private Homes, Historical Downtown house description

Rates range from $125-$200/night. CALL, TEXT OR EMAIL for PERSONALIZED QUOTE. And be sure you mark VRBO and HomeAway 'Not Junk' in your email program.

Just 3 blocks from the Plaza, the Biscochito Holiday Casita – named for New Mexico’s official special-occasion cookie, the 'biscochito' – is a sweet freestanding, fully-equipped adobe guesthouse that is beautiful, comfortable and clean, clean, clean! Two artists designed it, and guests love the attention to décor and detail. That plus the perfect Santa Fe setting in a quiet historic downtown neighborhood in this ideal location near the Plaza and surrounding restaurants, markets, galleries, shopping, performance spaces, the Convention Center, the railyard and museums (walk 2 short blocks to the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum!)

You are greeted with a supply of specialty coffee and teas in the granite-tile countertop kitchen that has everything: mini-refrigerator, two-burner countertop stove, microwave, D/W, coffeepot, tea kettle, blender, toaster, stainless pots-and-pans, dishes, wine goblets and more. Expect ironed pillowcases, fine linens and bedding on the queen-size bed, ample fluffy soft towels for the bathroom with gorgeously tiled shower and skylight.

Traditional beamed ceilings, French doors, dimmer contemporary fixtures, original artwork, red leather arm chairs, high-speed wifi, 26” flat screen Cable TV/DVD, and stacked W/D. Electric only with on-demand water heater (endless hot water) and baseboard heat. A/C available or operable skylight for warm times. The private brick patio with umbrella table and tabletop charcoal barbecue is enclosed with Santa Fe style coyote (cedar post) fencing. Parking provided, too!

Ideal for two! And there's more ...

Get mileage on your relaxation by starting your stay with a fantastic massage! Owner Victoria is a retired RN in private massage therapy practice more than 18 years. The massage (and art) studio is just 1 block from the casita. No need to resist - treat yourself with an appointment (go to http://www.victoria-rogers.com for details at the Massage tab).

                      About the owner: Victoria Rogers, RN, LMT, MA, 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 for details, including massage offering just a block from the casita!) 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.

                      Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Historical Downtown:
                      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.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      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!
