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.

Exactly as advertised, great communication with owner

  • 4 of 5

This is a very nice property in the Raquet Club Estates area of Palm Springs. The location is convenient to many attractions by car, but like many areas in Palm Springs, a car is a must. This property is basically as advertised. Very comfortable and clean. The hot tub was awesome for us as we were there during cooler weather. There is a covered outdoor area with fans that would be great during the hotter months but we did not use it. The furnishings were comfortable but mostly Ikea so not at all luxurious. The kitchen was well stocked, although we would have welcomed a few more options with respect to pots and pans.

The best part of the property is the owner, who is very attentive to your needs and responsive should there be any issues. We had no issues, but I am confident that she would have replied and acted promptly if we had problems.

Overall it was a very comfortable, clean and conveniently-located property. We would comfortably recommend this property to others.

Amazing Property - Great Escape!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing experience with this property, starting with the prompt and friendly responses by the owner. We use VRBO for most of our vacations (3-4/yr) and I can honestly say that this was one of the absolute BEST! The property was clean and inviting, well stocked, and turn-key. Thank you for accepting our small pets, who thoroughly enjoyed the fenced-in yard and being able to spend time with the family without being on leash. The pool and hot tub were OUTSTANDING and very much enjoyed. We were able to Uber everywhere we wanted to go, which is a nice convenience. I can't think of any downsides.

Desert Oasis

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful long weekend at Via Jacques while attending Desert Trip concert. It was a wonderful home base, with most of time spent pool side, with a convenient outdoor kitchenette. The beds were comfortable as was the hammock for relaxing in shade. It was the perfect place to rest and recharge for the 3 day concert. A big thank you to Susie, who made it all very easy, and very special.

Simply Perfect

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about our stay in Palm Springs. The house was clean and the pool was perfect. My favorite thing was waking up in the very comfy bed and going to the patio to lay on the hammock to enjoy my coffee in the morning. Susan was very accommodating and is an extremely thoughtful and sweet host. She takes pride in making sure your stay is perfect. I can't wait to come back!

Five-star resort, desert oasis!

  • 5 of 5

This property was awesome. A total mid-century modern house which will meet all your needs if you want the experience of classic Palm Springs architecture and decor. The home itself is stocked full of all the necessary items and more for your stay. The kitchen is well stocked and it was nice to have the extra fridge and ice maker in the bar area of the pool deck. When we opened the front door of the breeze way it was as if we walked into a five-star desert oasis fit for a magazine photoshoot. There were towels set outside on the lounge chairs along with umbrellas which provided ample shade during the day at the pool. Susan made this experience easy to book and provided many options for places to visit and eat at during our stay. We will be booking the property again the future. I highly recommend this property for all occasions, it truly was a joy.
