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

Beautiful and well maintained home, pool, spa, and landscaping, all very private. Susie (the owner) is very personable and makes certain that her guests feel comfortable and that all is in order. I give it a 5 star rating. We plan to return again.

Old school glam with everything you could need!

  • 5 of 5

Such a thoughtful property. The owners are clearly really in touch with exactly what makes for the perfect vacation.

We are super fussy and this property is spotless.

We didn't even have a car. You're half a mile walk to great espresso at Reservior. And the Riveria if you want to pop in for a poolside drink. We cannot wait to come back to Via Jacques!! ❤️

Great location, house &

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five (2 adults & 3 teenagers) stayed in this property for a week in March. The property met our needs completely. We love this neighborhood for the peace and quiet it offers and the proximity to down town, local stores and the airport. The photos are representative of the mid century design house. The kitchen is very well stocked with everything you need and include the basics for cooking. The beds are comfortable and the house is spotlessly clean. The outside areas are very well designed providing extended space and privacy. The pool was exceptional and the hot tub a nice addition that we didn't think much about initially but our teenagers loved it. This is our fourth house we have rented in Palm Springs via VRBO and the only house we have not had an issue with the pool. The pool is deep, warm and clean. Susie, the owner is very responsive and accommodating. We have already booked our spring break in this house for 2018 we loved it so much.

Perfect place to spend spring break!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful week in Palm Springs at Via Jacques. All six of us had more than enough room to relax and enjoy a much-needed spring break. Almost as soon as we arrived we sat in the swinging basket chairs and just listened to the birds for a while. So relaxing! The pool is quite a big larger than most rental property pools we've encountered. It was perfectly warm and very clean. I really appreciated how easy it was to seek shade when needed, and full sun if desired. We ate many of our meals at the house, and found the kitchen well-equipped and stocked with nearly everything we could possibly need. Everything was in good repair and very clean. We took a walk nearly every morning and enjoyed the nice neighborhood and other mid-century modern houses in the area. I really can't think of any negatives. If you are a group of chefs, you mind find it challenging to all be in the galley-style kitchen at once, but it really was fine for our purposes. It met or exceeded all of our expectations. Our communication with Susie was effortless, and her explanations about the property were very clear and easy to understand. We would return without hesitation! Thank you!

Didn't want to leave

  • 5 of 5

Staying here was great. Susan was responsive. The place was clean. Well taken care of and well planned. The grounds were the best part. Somewhere to eat with lights and fans. Somewhere to lie by the pool. A warm pool and hot tub. Hammocks with fans and lights. Altogether it made me pretty content to spend the day at the house and not out exploring Palm Springs. My only qualm was the kitchen. Susan has made sure to outfit it with everything that you could want, but it is super tight. Not a place for more than one person to be in at the same time. My guess is that it's the price you pay for adding bigger bedroom closets and more bathrooms to an older house, you have to take away from somewhere else. Overall, our stay here was fabulous.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad that you enjoyed your stay at Via Jacques. Indeed, we call Via Jacques' kitchen the bowling alley kitchen instead of a "galley kitchen" because it is tight! Via Jacques has enjoyed the same architectural footprint since 1959, I think it says a lot about how kitchens were used in the 1950s---cooking was not the shared family and friends activity that it is now.

Via Jacques - My new home away from home in Palm Springs.

  • 5 of 5

The pictures only begin to tell the story of this home. In person it exceeded my expectations which were already high. It is ideally located in a quiet neighborhood not far from downtown. The home is just the right size with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. It was well equipped with everything we could possibly need or want. It was spotless and quite stylish. The attention to detail by the owner with easy to follow instructions which are not only in a binder, but throughout the house, really impressed. Including the TV. Yes, step by step to get the TV, cable and surround sound going. A simple sticky note by the remote...and bam! The home is very private and thus we lounged by the pool the entire time we were there. It was our own private resort. The pool was heated perfectly and well maintained by a very cool and helpful (for restaurant recommendations) pool man. The owner of the home communicated clearly and readily throughout the Homeaway experience. You will never get the personalized attention I was given by the owner from any hotel or resort anywhere. I highly recommend this property. I will never stay at a hotel again while in Palm Springs. Via Jacques is my new home away from home. 5 Stars Plus Plus.

Would Book Again

  • 5 of 5

Stayed the weekend and had so much fun. The size of the house was perfect for us...we were 6 girls + 1 lucky guy. Impressed that the house actually looked like the photos...better than I had remembered and it was neat and clean. Check in instructions and info about the house was easy and helpful. Kitchen layout is narrow so having too many cooks in the kitchen can feel cramped. House is very well stocked with all the essentials and then some. We did some cooking so it was so nice to find everything we needed. Loved the pool, it was clean and heated without an extra fee. Spa off to the side was so much's under a lemon tree. Outdoor fire pit and lit up pool added a really swanky ambiance. We almost forgot about the indoor fireplace and didn't use it until our last night. The homeowner is really nice, very accommodating and helpful. What a wonderful and relaxing weekend we had here...wish we could have stayed longer.
