About Jan Wacker

Since John retired in 2013 after 39 years with the Portland power company, he and Jan have been spending most winter months in Palm Springs. When we are not there, however, we are happy to share our little piece of heaven there with VRBO renters!

Jan Wacker purchased this condo in 2011

Why Jan Wacker chose Sunrise Vista Chino

Sunrise Racquet Club is a haven of immaculately landscaped grounds, mountain view pools and spas, and well-maintained tennis courts. Dedicated bike path right outside racquet club gates, and two supermarkets in walking/biking distance. 10 minutes to airport, 5 minutes to downtown. 10 golf courses within 5 miles.

What makes this condo unique

In addition to enjoying lots of pool time, there is great dining in downtown Palm Springs. Also, try hiking at the top of San Jacinto Mts (via tram) as well as Joshua Tree National Monument. Great air museum and little zoo nearby, too. Lots to do!

Great Property with Stunning Views

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised as the property was larger than anticipated.

It is situated in a secure complex near to the airport but this was not an issue as the planes were few and far between and didn't fly at night. We were there about two weeks before I heard the first plane fly over.

The condo is tastefully decorated and was very clean and tidy.

The hummingbirds were great to watch whilst chilling at the rear paved area of the condo. There is a feeder at the front paved area and the owner has left instructions on how to prepare a sucrose solution to fill the hummingbird feeder.

The kitchen is very well equipped and the utensils and pots appeared to be new.

The master bedroom has a dressing area and en suite. The large shower had very good water pressure. Towels were supplied for use in the condo with other towels to be used at any of the six pools in the complex. We only used the closest pool which was large enough to relax and chill out in. It ranges from 3 to 8 feet deep so if you have young children they would have to be supervised.

There is a separate bathroom which is next to the second bedroom.

The owners left their telephone number so that we could contact them if required although this was not necessary as detailed instructions were left.

Although we were there for four weeks, we toured around California, Nevada and Arizona and it was great to return to the condo at the end of each tour.

There are a few fast food restaurants and a supermarket about half a mile away.

The condo had a good air conditioning system which was required as the area had unseasonally high temperatures which peaked at 130 degrees.

We left flyers in the condo for a lodge (Evergreen Haus) near to Yosemite National Park which is highly recommended.

Yosemite was very nice and well worth the visit.

The Grand Canyon was awesome and again it is a must if you are prepared to travel the 400ish miles.

We also visited San Francisco. Pier 39 was a worthwhile area to visit and Alcatraz was wonderful. The guide we had gave a very informative talk which covered the history of the island.

We went to Laguna Seca to watch the Moto GP which happened to be on whilst we were in California. It was a great day with action from start to finish.

We visited Huntington Beach, Laguna Beach and Venice beach which were all very clean.

We visited friends in Lake Forest which is a very nice area with good amenities.

I would highly recommend this condo.
