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 Palm Springs, North

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

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.

Excellent House!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at Via Miraleste. It was the perfect size for 7 adult women getting together for sorority reunion weekend. The wide open floor plan makes the house seem very big. The rooms are a good size. the house is beautifully decorated with mid century modern décor. There is a sound system that your phone can plug into to play music throughout the house- but does not play well outside, so you may want to bring a small wireless speaker (jawbone) for outside music. The pool is just the right size for relaxing- it is shallow and not long so no diving or lap swimming! :-) The backyard is big and spacious. Plenty of seating for everyone inside and outside of the house. The house is close to the airport, about a 15 min drive. I was worried we would hear a lot of airplane noise... but we hear nothing! It is a very quiet neighborhood- we never saw the neighbors on either side of the house- only saw a few people walking their dogs. It looks like it is on a busy street, but we rarely saw a car. The house is close to main streets with restaurants and shopping. We walked to brunch one day- about 1.5 - 2 miles. The house has all the amenities needed, but limited supply of paper goods (paper towels, toilet paper, Kleenex)... if you stay longer than 3 days, you will probably have to buy more... not a big deal though. Susie, the owner, was very gracious and responsive. Bottom-line- best review I can give is that we would go back again and we would recommend to others!!
