About Susan Karlshoej

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

Why Susan Karlshoej chose Palm Springs

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.

What makes this house unique

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!

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

Beautiful get-away

  • 5 of 5
What a beautiful house and property. The kitchen was so well stocked with everything you need, we ate in almost every meal. It was just too tempting to stay in and be by the pool, or soak in the hot tub. The beds are super comfy and the bathrooms very modern.
We will be back again !

Owner's Response: Funny how you make plans to do all sorts of things while you're in Palm Springs and then when you arrive at Via Jacques, your blood pressure just drops and suddenly a Staycation where you roll off of the chaise lounges into the pool seems like a much better choice than running around town sightseeing. Glad you enjoyed the hot tub and I hope you were able to see the Aerial Tram going up and down the mountain at night. Very Best, Susie

Exactly what we hoped for.

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we arrived, everything was perfect. The house, pool, spa, and numerous outdoor areas were all very clean and well-maintained. Susie's pleasant personality, attention to detail, and dedication to making our stay enjoyable made this a relaxed, hassle-free vacation. We would definitely recommend this beautiful property to our friends.

Tropical oasis

  • 5 of 5
This zen like tropical oasis is unbelievably awesome! Our family had a wonderful vacation in Palm Springs. We spent most of our time in this resort home away from home. The property is only minutes from downtown but it was hard to pull ourselves away from our own private pool and spa! We can't wait to go back!

Owner's Response: Via Jacques is a great place. I hope you enjoyed the shade patio with the hammocks and hanging chairs. I hope you return to Palm Springs when the weather is a little more hike-and-bike friendly. Cheers, Susie

“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
