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!

What makes this house unique

Tesla charger --come and charge your Tesla when you stay at Via Miraleste

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!

This house had EVERYTHING we needed, close enough to town, but perfect enough in itself.

  • 5 of 5

Pretty, private, backyard with beautiful fire pit, jacuzzi and salt water pool heated just right (and with easy instructions), the kitchen had everything we needed (including a powerful blender). The owner made sure you knew she was available, but everything was in working order and plainly labeled so we never needed her. The mountain views out the kitchen window were great. A quiet neighborhood with lots of hummingbirds and we even spotted an owl one night. Because the bedrooms and bathrooms are on either side of the kitchen/dining room/living room the early risers didn't worry about disturbing the late nighters, a great set-up for large groups and families with small kids. My friends and I are coming back, best experience with a VRBO ever!!!!!

Owner's Response: I'm so very glad that you enjoyed your stay at Via Miraleste! The hummingbirds love playing Top Gun around the yard, but I have never seen an owl at Via Miraleste before! Yes! the house is set up with a north wing of bedrooms and a south wing of bedrooms so you can have nappers and non-nappers, early birds and night owls living in harmony. I look forward to welcoming you back. Susie

Couldn't have asked for more

  • 5 of 5

My 3 business partners and I stayed at this home for 4 nights in October.

We loved the mid century modern vibe of this home. There are 4 very spacious bedrooms with large comfortable beds and 3 bathrooms so we all had plenty of space. The kitchen is large and everything we could have wanted to use for cooking and eating was there. The house was spotlessly clean.

The pool was very comfortable and the hot tub was nice at night. BBQ had direct hook up to gas so no chance of the propane tank running empty. We liked the feature of having music playing throughout the house and on the back patio if we wanted it to.

Everything at this home was in excellent working condition. There were plenty of towels including lots of pool towels. The pool and hot tub instructions were simple to understand and use.

The home is about 10 minutes from the airport towards the Northern edge of Palm Springs. The neighborhood itself is very quiet. It's quick to the freeway and close to downtown's wide selection of restaurants. A large grocery store and pharmacy are a few blocks away.

We really couldn't have been more pleased with this home. Not nearly every vacation rental that we've stayed at has been cared for as well as this one. The owner was always prompt to respond to questions and although she was out of town when we were there, we had contact information for other people, should we need anything.

There is an obvious pride of ownership and customer service here which explains why this property keeps getting great reviews.

Thanks for a fantastic stay Susan.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 6-8 ladies have stayed here for 4 years in a row. We are planning our 5th now! Each room easily holds two people and plenty of space to hang out in the sun or shade. The owner is wonderful and makes everything just perfect. I can't say enough - we just love it here. The only complaint is the smaller room - the bed is a bit hard and you have to get cozy with your mate but not really a big deal. It feels like home away from home - truly!

Awesome Home for vacation

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely loved this place. It has a nice open layout that feels spacious and big. The yard is amazing and the covered patio provides shade when you don't want to be in the sun. Location was great, it was super close to the strip. The A/C kept us nice and cool the whole time. The house was really well kept and the bathrooms looked like they were recently redone looking new. Also the house has speakers wired into the walls which provided good sound via Bluetooth. Overall great stay, will highly recommend to anyone looking for a place to stay.
