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.

Why Susan Karlshoej chose Racquet Club Estates
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!

My favorite VRBO so far!!!
This was a five night get-away for my 50th birthday party with 6 of my closest girlfriends. We (as a group) have stayed a several VRBOs for various reasons over the years. All have been "okay" but none have been excellent -- until this one. A lot of times homes look amazing online but when you get there you notice little things here and there that indicate the property is not very well taken care of -- or you roll in and think "um, this neighborhood is sketchy." Not at Via Miraleste. This place was spotless, in a rad neighborhood, both pool and spa heated at the same time (which someone at a different rental tried to convince me was not possible), there were the sweetest little reminders of the rules (instead of threats of large fees if we did not abide by the rules), the house has built in speakers inside and out, the pool was clean as a whistle, the house was spotless, there were towels galore, check out was super easy (instead of a page full of instructions), and there was a bottle of Champagne in the fridge for my birthday. Between seven (somewhat picky) Moms, not one of us had a complaint. And I'm not joking. It was like a little slice of heaven for us. We thought about leaving a bad review so we could keep this as our little secret, but I wouldn't dream of doing that to the owner who was AWESOME. So instead, I have made it my mission to become her best friend and stay at her house at least once a year. Thank you Susan for making my 50th birthday perfection. xoxo Lisa Henderson
Spotless, over the top equipped and spacious accommodations
We had a fantastic week! Via Miraleste has an amazing open spacious floor plan to accommodate family and friends The best kitchen ever, totally equipped with room for many chefs at the same time. Although we rarely left the residence and pool, it is super convenient to town and amenities. Sorry to have to return to reality but will be back!
C & J & Family.
Thank you again Susie!
We loved our stay at this house in Racquet Club Estates. The location was very convenient, far enough off the strip to be away from the crowds, but close enough that you could drive there in 5-10 minutes, and a big grocery store/Starbucks is just as close in the other direction. It was also very convenient to the airport. I was a little worried that aircraft noise might be an issue, but it never was (and if you're a pilot or aviation enthusiast like me, it's fun to watch the PSP activity from the back yard).
There is a nice park, Victoria Park, a few blocks from this house, a great place for walking in the mornings--and unlike Cathedral City, they allow your four-footed friend to walk with you.
The house itself was simply and nicely decorated, and the kitchen was probably the best equipped that I've experienced. The beds and towels were great too, and the whole place was spic and span. The yard and pool were very nice, and it would have been a delightful place to spend more time if Palm Springs hadn't had a severe cold and rainy snap while we were there.
The owner, Susie, clearly CARES about this house and her guests and she is a great host. In summary, if you stay here, I don't think you'll be disappointed (except maybe by the weather).
What a great home. Very spacious, great location, beautiful views!!
Our family of 5 had a wonderful stay. The home was so well stocked with towels, kitchen ware etc. We loved it and will be back again.
Amazing time once again
We just got back from 4 nights at this beautiful house and had an amazing time. This is the second year in a row that my business partners and I have stayed here and it didn't disappoint. The back yard is perfect, the pool and hot tub are clean and a good temperature. The house is large with lots of room and a well appointed kitchen. The Living Room entertainment system was perfect for watching movies in. All in all it is a great place and we're already looking forward to next year.
Loved our time in this house. Very relaxing and super private!
