Guestbook comments from the owner
I felt that the dictionary description of perfect was suitable for the start of the review! Perfect 1. having all the required or desirable elements, qualities, or characteristics; as good as it is possible to be. synonyms: ideal, model, without fault, faultless, flawless, consummate, quintessential, exemplary, best, ultimate, The house was pristinely clean and very visually appealing! Susie met us at the house and showed us around and the moment she was out the door we headed out for supplies ( the grocery store is two minutes away) and then it was time to jump into the fabulous pool with our children! We only ate out once as the kitchen has everything you could ask for as well as a great BBQ area. The beds are super comfortable and a fire at night with a glass of wine ended the day nicely. There is much to do in Palm Springs for sightseeing but I can definitely say it was hard to leave the house some days...As we have teen children the deep pool is amazing-they played hard the entire week we were there. I really cant wait to go back, and when we do, this is where we will stay. The house has a very lovely feeling when you walk in the door-it felt like a home

After a happy and thriving experience with our first vacation rental in Palm Springs, Via Miraleste, my husband and I purchased Via Jacques in April 2013 and have gone through major renovations to bring our guests a taste of Palm Springs mid-century living with all of the amenities of today.

I love mid century design and love being a host to my guests.

My family and I live in Orange County, California, about 1 1/2 hours from Via Jacques (in another mid-century property!) and spend a good deal of time in Palm Springs tending to our properties.

Susan Karlshoej purchased this house in 2013

I purchased Via Jacques in April 2013 after looking at dozens of homes in Palm Springs. Via Jacques has wonderful light, beautiful views of the mountains, is very private and peaceful and just has a good all-around 'feel'. I loved that the entire pool, fire pit and spa could be viewed from the living room and dining area--really an indoor/outdoor experience.

Via Jacques boasts not only a large pool and built-in spa, but a proper fireplace indoors and an outdoor firepit with lots of seating around it. I also loved that Via Jacques fulfilled my 'must have' of an unobstructed view of the mountains. The deal clincher was the poolside bar with full size fridge, large sink, and plenty of storage and counterspace to blend favorite frosty drinks. Now you can blend away and then fill your friends' glasses just steps from the pool!

“Perfect Palm Springs escape"

“Perfect Palm Springs escape"
  • 5 of 5
Via Jacques afforded a group of 4 couples the perfect escape over 4th of July weekend, out of the chaos of LA and into the quiet, peaceful (albeit hot!) desert.

We wanted to escape crazy fireworks and we were blissed out in the serenity of Via Jacques. The house is comfortably appointed with a large salt water pool and hot tub, lots of outdoor entertaining space (in fact there are several areas for R&R on the property, aside from just the pool there's a lovely patio area with a dining table and hammocks), peace and quiet in the evenings and a small, but well-equipped kitchen so that you can cook and grill meals and hardly have reason to leave the property.

The house is on the smaller side for as many people as we had, but the sofa bed is very comfortable (according to the couple who slept in it) and those of us in actual beds loved the mattresses in each room.

Lovely mid-century modern aesthetic, too, and you could see the mountains and 4th of July Palm Springs fireworks show (a little!) from the backyard-- though you couldn't hear them :)

PERFECT, PERFECT, PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
did I say it was PERFECT... This was a last minute trip for us and we were lucky enough that this property was available. From the first communication with Susie, I just knew this was going to be a wonderful trip. She is the ultimate hostess and really makes sure her guests are taken care of and happy. On our 2nd night there, she brought me a wonderful bouquet of sunflowers and fresh figs from her other property. The little touches and special attention were so appreciated We are a family of 4 with a very well behaved dog and this property had something for everyone. The house is remodeled and the attention to detail is amazing. The design of the house is open and has so much light. I loved being able to sit in the living room and watch my daughter in the pool. The landscaping and yard is over the top amazing. You can hang out in the pool or relax in the hammocks in the covered patio with the fans. The other plus was having an outdoor refrig. Stocked it full of drinks and popsicles and the kids were in heaven and I had no wet feet in the house. The pictures do not do this property justice. Before leaving today, we were able to tour her other property which is 2 streets over. It was equally amazing and perfect for a larger group. We will definitely be back and plan on making this a annual tradition if not bi annual. You will not be disappointed if you choose either of Susie's properties. I can not thank her enough for giving us the perfect place to relax and recharge.

Via Jacques Is A Winner!

  • 5 of 5
We didn't see how our stay at Via Jacques could equal our stay at Susie's other property, Via Miraleste, last year, but we were wrong! The property is Palm Springs at its finest! The interior is well appointed, well equipped, well maintained, and very comfortable. The outdoor area is like a private resort! The pool, the spa, the outdoor kitchen, the side patio area with hammocks & swinging chairs - WOW. We thought we would spend a couple of hours at the pool one day; we never left it!

In addition to this being a great property, Susie, the owner, is wonderful to work with. She is attentive and accommodating to her guests, responds immediately to any questions or concerns (both before and during the stay), and enjoys sharing this special property with others. Can't wait 'til out next visit!

Owner's Response: I am so thrilled that you and your friends enjoyed your stay at Via Jacques! I know that before you reserved Via Jacques some of your group had considered staying at a hotel. I hope that they are convinced that staying at a vacation rental home like Via Jacques is a WAY better manner of enjoying all that Palm Springs has to offer than "hotelling". I look forward to your return. Cheers,
Susie

Wow we had the time of our lives here!

  • 5 of 5
This is simply an amazing place to stay - we loved everything from the pool and outside bar/kitchen, to the way the whole house was designed and put together - completely fabulous and tasteful. The whole house is incredibly light and has a great feel to it. The kitchen has everything you need and lots more and I loved the fridge! The welcome hamper was a very kind gift. The area to the side of the house with the hammocks and swings was amazing - loved reading my book with a coffee there each morning. The area is v quiet and the road it's in so typical of Palm Springs and we said wow every time we left the house too. Susan is a great host and really does think of everything. Especially when you're travelling from across the pond, it's really nice to have a well stocked place - it's such a pain when places don't even have the basics like toilet roll and dishwasher tablets, but this place is great and really does have everything you need. The bed was huge and v comfortable and we slept soundlessly. I was very sad to leave but we'll definitely be back. First time in Palm Springs and it's a fab place. We loved going to happy hour cocktails and nibbles at the Viceroy - amazing value. Restaurant at Ace Hotel is lush too. I can't think of a better and more relaxing place to stay than this and we're very fussy indeed.

Owner's Response: Your first time to Palm Springs and I hope it won't be your last. There's so much to do, and not only night life but also wonderful natural enjoyments like hiking both in the desert hills and up in the mountains after a ride on the Palm Springs Aerial Tram.

And the architectural gems in Via Jacques' neighborhood--the wonderful mix of Alexanders and Meiselmans--they are delightful and appreciated by architecture fans the world over.

Thanks for mentioning the fridge--I love that fridge, too!

I look forward to welcoming you back to Via Jacques or Via Miraleste if you bring additional friends along next time.

Cheers,
Susie

Absolutely the Best!!

  • 5 of 5
Via Jacques is beautiful, picturesque and charming inside and out, conveniently situated in a quiet neighborhood with homes of similar architectural style. The home is lovely, well-appointed, very clean, and very well-cared for by its most friendly owners. Susan met us at the home as we arrived after a short drive from the Palm Springs airport, which incidentally is one of the best in the country. She cheerfully and efficiently explained the various features of the home and property and reminded us to call her if we needed anything. She is a jewel! The home provides all the conveniences and features necessary for a memorable and relaxing retreat from the cares of our often too busy lives. The grounds are spacious, well-cared for, and very private. Although the beautiful swimming pool and hot tub are the featured attraction of the "back yard," the covered side patio wilth its hammocks and swinging chairs provide a comfortable and nice shelter from the sun or in the evening. The grill and the outside kitchen area also enhance the outdoor experience. The interior spaces of the home are well-designed, aesthetically pleasing, and visually arresting. This is easy-going, comfortable living at its best. Although we dined at several restaurants in the area, we highly recommend Spencers at the Palm Springs Tennis Club for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We'd be remiss, however, if we failed to suggest a large slice of delicious coconut cake from Shermans Bakery and Deli. We would definitely return to Via Jacques, and we highly recommend it to others. We award highest marks to Susan and Via Jacques!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review of Via Jacques. I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay. I will have to go and try a slice of coconut cake from Sherman's Deli. My current Palm Springs food obsession is Tlaquepacque--Mexican food at its most authentic.

There is so much to do in and around Palm Springs and Via Jacques makes a great base of operations for a visit. I hope you return.

Cheers,
Susie

Via Jacques-Desert Oasis

  • 5 of 5
Via Jacques is an absolutely delightful “home away from home”. We have stayed at a number of vacation homes in the desert throughout the years and this is far and away the most comfortable and well maintained. We spent a glorious two weeks Spring Break with our children in this desert paradise; every day the sun shone and we pinched ourselves! The home is very well appointed, from a fully stocked kitchen to luxurious towels and quality linens, top of the line appliances and comfortable seating. When we arrived, Susie had left us some treats for the girls in the refrigerator…It is precisely these attention to details have made this stay a memorable one. Most of our time was spent in the breath taking back yard that boasts a large pool and spa and a shaded area with two large hammocks. The outdoor space is simply divine. On our first day night we gazed at the fire pit and decided that we would definitely return for another stay at Via Jacques. Thank you to Susie for making us feel at home and for her generosity.

Very Best, and I hope you return to your Palm Springs Home Away from Home!
