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 Racquet Club Estates

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.

So LOVELY!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was simply perfect for my little family of 4. The area and location were by far the best I've ever been able to afford to rent. You are literally down the street from the Rivera Hotel and Downtown PS. Next trip will be GIRLS only!

Fun house to get-away with friends.

  • 5 of 5

This was my second time staying at this beautiful property with a group of girlfriends. Other than an afternoon enjoying Las Consuelas, we did not leave the premises. We grilled two nights, enjoyed the beautiful pool and and hung out in all the nice spaces available to us.

Thanks again Susan! We will be back.

Birthday Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and another couple had the pleasure of staying at Via Jacques. We were celebrating my wife's birthday and it couldn't have been better. The house is fully equipped, the A/C blows cold air and the pool is perfect for those hot days. Working with Susie was a pleasure, she's a great host. We'll definitely be staying there again.

Wonderful property except.........

  • 4 of 5

This is a wonderful property, spacious and well laid out. The full size pool makes it exceptional. We really enjoyed ourselves and were only mildly disappointed in our second stay at this property by what appeared to be some cost cutting efforts by the proprietor. These related to the cable and internet service. First, there are two tvs but only one worked as the other, located in the guest bedroom, did not have cable service. Second, on the morning of our departure, cable and internet service went out at 9 am even though check out was at noon.

Nevertheless, our stay was very enjoyable and other than the items described above, our host was easy to deal with.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed your second stay at Via Jacques overall. The house is not large, but the outdoor space is really wonderful. I'm glad you appreciated it. When you arrived and you let me know that the internet/cable wasn't working properly, I walked you through how to re-boot the modem and let you know the cable company trouble shooting numbers. You said that you would call me back if you were continuing to have problems. I never received a return telephone call, so I assumed all was in order. Internet issues can happen in any home, or even at the neighborhood level. In no way are these issues attempts at "cost cutting" on my part. I most certainly do not have the power to or interest in "cutting" the internet/cable before my guests depart. Yes, both TVs have cable, and I would have been delighted to help you, my guests, if I had known that there was any problem whatsoever. I do hope to host you again and hope that you will let me know if anything isn't working properly so that I can help you enjoy your stay to the utmost.

Amazing House!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time.. The house had everything we needed. We were visiting during a heat wave so we lived basically in the pool. The hammock chill space was magic.. Thank you!!!

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!! ❤️
