About Jan Wacker

John and Jan live in Portland, OR, in the historical Irvington neighborhood. We also have condos in Palm Springs, CA, and Reno, NV. Our 1916 craftsman bungalow in Portland was fully renovated in 2008. The 1979 Palm Springs condo was remodeled top to bottom in spring 2011 and also is available for vacation rental. The Reno condo was purchased and fully renovated in summer 2012.

John is an electrical engineer, and Jan is retired. We enjoy traveling abroad, especially to Europe. When in Portland, we have fun driving our two classic cars, a 1940 Buick Super hot rod and a 1965 Skylark convertible. We look forward to much more traveling when John retires.

Jan Wacker purchased this condo in 2012

Why Jan Wacker chose Reno

All the fun of downtown and all the proximity to the great outdoors! The Truckee River and Wingfield Park bandstand are just across from the condo entry, and we love all the recent changes in downtown Reno. Drive to Lake Tahoe for summer and winter fun, hike and ski in the mountains, enjoy day trips to historic Virginia City, NV, or Sacramento, CA. The Basque food in Gardnerville, NV, is also a treat.

What makes this condo unique

Easy access to all that downtown Reno has to offer--

*Unique restaurants in the Riverwalk District within 4 blocks

*National Bowling Stadium--7 blocks away

*Historic and modern casinos with wide array of concert offerings in addition to gambling challenges--within 6 blocks

*National Car Museum (featuring the Harrah collection)--8 blocks away

*Artown festival every July, with nightly music and other entertainment--Across the street from the condo entry

*Nevada Art Museum--4 blocks away

*Great Basin Community Food Co-op--1 block away; other groceries about 1 mile away

Watch adventurers in the whitewater kayaking and inner tubing course from the living room window, or join in the fun by renting equipment at the park across the street.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The condo on the river was great, it was clean and tastefully doctorates. I felt at home from the first night and the location was prefect. I stayed during Artown and enjoyed concerts in the park, great restaurants and music around town. Everything was within walking distance. I will recommend the condo to friends and family.

Great stay in downtown Reno

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this nice, clean and well equipped condo in downtown Reno. We had wanted to sample urban living and got a very good feel for it. Absolutely enjoyed the convenience to everything: The museum, the river, restaurants, brewpubs, and lots of good music. The people watching was fun, too. We would definitely come back here again.

Very clean, secure condominium, literally on the river, walk to dinner, park right across the street for kids to play. also small local food coop for groceries across the street. Pull out sofa comfortable, ample bedding and towels. Wifi and netflix was a nice bonus. You can access public transportation with in a couple blocks. Thanks for the great stay.

Well centered

  • 5 of 5

Just as described and pictured. Well located for our needs. Views out and off the top of the condo are just awesome!! You can walk to restaurants and movie theater near by and the park is out the front door. We spent time in Susanville and Carson City, shopped and played tourist. When we arrived, we were walked thru the condo and showed around, I thought this was a nice touch! We really enjoyed our stay and had a great time. Thank you for making that happen!

Great unit!

  • 5 of 5

This unit was exactly as described. The unit was clean and well stocked. Thelma answered our questions and explained how everything in the unit worked. The river view was very relaxing. We will rent this unit again on our next visit to Reno.

Comfortable and convenient

  • 3 of 5

I stayed in the apartment in January 2016 while taking a 2 week course at the university. It was comfortable and warm, as well as conveniently located. It was within walking distance to the campus, had an organic grocery store right around the corner, and had a nice, but small, kitchen.

Great condo!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this condo while attending a conference in Reno and it had all of the necessary amenities - it made my time in Reno very pleasant. The convenient location along with the comfortable furnishings certainly trumped the conference hotel accommodations. I highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a place to stay in Reno.
