About Susan Karlshoej

My husband and I purchased this property in late 2009 and have been through months of renovations to make this property into a comfortable, casual, stylish, relaxing place. I love mid-century modern architecture/Palm Springs modern. We live in Orange County, California, about 1 hour from the property--in another mid-century house.

Susan Karlshoej purchased this house in 2009

Why Susan Karlshoej chose Palm Springs

I looked for a long time at dozens of properties in Palm Springs, I wanted a quiet neighborhood, no power lines obstructing the beautiful view of the mountains, and good interior space in a mid-century house. It is difficult all of those things in one property but the result was well worth the months of looking and months of renovating. I only wish I could air-lift this house to replace my main residence in Orange County!

What makes this house unique

Guestbook comments from the owner

This house in unbelievable in every way. Stayed here with a group of friends. Everything was immaculate, kitchen was fully outfitted (and we have several cooks in the group), the recent renovations like the bathroom were simply gorgeous. The outdoor space was beautifully landscaped and comfortable but luxurious feeling. Bed linen was fresh and clean - absolutely great night sleep. My room had a lovely closet and small desk. There was a definitely attention to detail and thought put into what people would need for a comfortable stay. Location was also pretty perfect - close to the center of town, grocery store, etc. But, really aside from food shop, there was very little reason to leave. Fantastic sound system throughout the house and outdoor areas heightened our enjoyment. Owner left full details about the house and instructions on how to leave the property so you didn't have to think about anything. I appreciated this. Things were labeled and you could just give in to the vacation. Also i got my deposit check back almost as soon as i got back. Fantastic experience all round - from the property to the interactions with the owner, who is lovely btw. Thanks so much for a truly wonderful weekend. I like to think i have particular tastes when staying at hotels and rental properties and this one was perfect!

Beautiful home. Uber Palm Springs.

  • 5 of 5

Susan was fantastic and so helpful. We were a group

Of friends getting together from Kansas, San Francisco and LA. We all love mid century design and planned a trip to Palm Springs to get together. The home was very comfortable and beautifully furnished and decorated.

We loved it so much we barely left the house. We cooked our meals in and enjoyed the fantastic kitchen and outdoor dining. We all cooked together and also loved having a well equipped kitchen.

The bedrooms and bathrooms are beautiful. Everyone was very comfortable and who doesn't love wonderful sheets, pillows, linens and towels?

One of my favorite things about the outdoor area was the shaded porch to get out of the sun and the gliding patio furniture. So comfortable and relaxing. Nice pool and fab spa. It was too windy for the fire pit and would of loved to light it.

All of kept saying to each other, I could live here. We're all in the design industry and clearly a lot of thought and care went into all the finishes and details to make anyone's stay special.

We will be back, Thankyou Susan.

Better than the pictures, perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience in Via Miraleste from the first enquiry we sent to Susie through to check in, the stay itself and even after we left!

Everything was immaculately clean when we arrived and there was everything we could have wanted for our stay. Susie's kitchen is better equipped than my own at home, there was a great sound system throughout the house, plenty of towels for the bathrooms and by the pool, even toys for the pool!

The house is in a good location, not far from downtown Palm Springs and in a very peaceful area. We were staying for Coachella and the house is less than a 5 minute walk for the shuttle stop, very handy. There are shops closeby for stocking up although all the essentials (oil, salt and pepper, sugar, coffee) were already in the house for us to use which was great.

Susie was a great host and did everything she could to make us welcome and make our trip easy. She was even happy to answer the smallest of questions by phone when we arrived!

All in all a great stay, would come again and recommend very highly to friends!

There is just no other way to say it - this house was SPECTACULAR! The owners have thought of EVERYTHING and have detailed every aspect of the Via Miraleste experience. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left, we were impressed with every aspect of our stay. Susie's communication leading up to our visit was timely, friendly, and informative. The house was bright, clean, comfortable - impeccable, really! I just cannot say enough good things about it all. There was a group of 5 of us staying together and there was more than enough room for all of us. The kitchen was the perfect size for cooking our meals together and was equipped with everything we needed and more. The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. The backyard/pool/hot tub was PERFECT - absolutely perfect. The house was a very short drive from downtown Palm Springs and we loved exploring the area. It was also super close to Albertson's, liquor stores, pharmacies, etc. - everything we could've needed. We couldn't have been happier with our experience at Via Miraleste - it truly felt like a home away from home for the week and we would love to stay there again at some point! Thank you for trusting us with such a beautiful, special place!

Fantastic Family Holiday rental for all ages

  • 5 of 5

We had the great pleasure of staying at Via Miraleste for a week for a family holiday. What a treat staying at this home was. Susie has thought of absolutely everything a guest could possibly need to make for a relaxed family vacation. Even before we arrived we felt like guests, and once we walked through the doors we instantly felt at home in this very clean, spacious, light and bright holiday home. The bedroom arrangement was perfect for us (our family with 3 children were holidaying with Grandparents also, so space was important), we were able to spread out in the house and just enjoy the space in style. The kitchen was incredible; extremely well stocked and everything needed if you choose to self cater. The garden is a true oasis in the dessert and we spent a lot of time in the pool or relaxing under the verandah. Thank you Susie for allowing us to stay at home, it is the best holiday rental I have stayed in and I can't wait for the opportunity to return in the future.

This property is amazing!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We recently visited Palm Springs during Spring Break with another family-- 4 adults and 4 kids (ages 1-8). Our stay at N. Via Miraleste was amazing from the beginning to the end. Susan is the best host!!! She is prompt at getting back to you, answers any questions, gives great recommendations and is super friendly. Her instructions are clear and concise and she even called to welcome us to Palm Springs when the place was ready for us to check in. The house is super clean, comfortable, nicely decorated, stocked well and nicely laid out. It was very nice to have such a large kitchen, nice big bathrooms/bedrooms and two air conditioners! The house is in a perfect location--quiet neighbourhood, very private and close to everything--playgrounds, grocery store, restaurants, etc. The backyard is absolutely inviting! The grounds, pool and hot tub are well-maintained and you get sun the entire day. There are plenty of loungers, seating, tables and shaded areas in the backyard. We all enjoyed the pool as it was the perfect temperature! As much as we enjoyed what the rest of Palm Springs offers, this property made our visit even better. So relaxing and fun! We will definitely return to this property again and have already raved to our family and friends about it!
