Guestbook comments from the owner
climbnh, 2010-12-21

"Stayed at this apartment for 2 1/2 months and loved it. The place is completely furnished with everything you need. There was even a spray bottle of starch for pressing my shirts. The location downtown is great with multiple restaurants located in walking distance and easy access on and off Hwy 705. The bed and linen were amazing to come home to as well. I would highly recommend this to any one looking to stay in the downtown Tacoma Area."

My name is Laura Hanan and I am an artist and I live and work in my family's 100-year-old historic building with my husband Marty, who is also an artist. Ron Patterson one of our returning guests (& his wife Charnley) generously married us in 2009!

My family completely renovated our mixed-use building and built two beautiful identical high-end condos featuring custom cherry wood cabinetry, original brick walls, and refinished 100-year-old Doug Fir wood floors. Our original art is throughout the building and we have our studios and a frame shop located in the basement.

We welcome our guests to tour our sometimes messy studios. We also invite visitors to play in our studios and create some art of their own with our help if they want.

Laura Hanan purchased this condo in 2000

We found this beautiful old building - a dusty gem - in the heart of downtown Tacoma - the Theater District. We saw the raw potential of the area and since purchasing and remodeling our building we are in the center of a lovely new restaurant row, which proudly includes our own bar and grill, 'The Office', downstairs in our building. We are honored that our building is also on the local register of historic buildings.

A new Pacific Northwest heavy-hitter anchor tenant, McMenamins is being built less than two blocks away from our building and will feature a music venue, theatrical events, and a brew pub in the grand old historic Elks Building.

We love to pamper our guests with condos that are furnished tastefully and include all original artwork. A complimentary bottle of wine, chocolates, and pound of fresh coffee, await our visitors. We live on site and are available to help out with restaurant suggestions and information about the wonderful local events and places to visit.

WONDERFUL DOWNTOWN TACOMA FIND

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just had a wonderful stay in one of Laura's condos. Our only complaint was that we couldn't stay longer. Great location, vibrant local neighborhoods and very comfortable accommodations with attentive owner management!

CORPORATE HOUSING HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5
I absolutely loved staying in this condo. I travel often for work and usually need comfortable, fully-furnished housing for medium-term lengths of time. (1-2 months) This unit was the nicest I have ever found, and the monthly rates are a fantastic deal. The host was wonderful and has created a space far above and beyond a typical corporate housing option. This is a great location downtown, but with easy access in and out of the city as well. I can't imagine any suite in a downtown hotel could compare to this apartment. After a 12-hour travel day to get to Tacoma, a bottle of my favorite wine chilled and waiting on me was a lovely touch. Cheers to Laura for such a great experience.

GREAT HOME AWAY FROM HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS

  • 4 of 5
Just got back from 8 days at this fantastic condo with my husband and our two kids. We felt very much at home. The location was fantastic for First Night New Years Eve and we hosted several family members on different evenings for meals. The condo was well stocked (but could use a few more plates, bowls, etc for hosting guests), felt very safe and Laura thinks of all the small details to make it a great home away from home. We took advantage of the downtown tram to local museums, followed some great restaurant recommendations. Easy walk to antique row, tram and local coffee shops and restaurants. I was impressed with how clean and fresh the place felt. I have rented all over the world and this is one of the cleanest and well stocked places I have stayed. Thanks Laura for a great spot in downtown Tacoma!

GREAT PLACE TO STAY IN TACOMA

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I were in the midst of moving to the Puget Sound area for a new job but unfortunately our house wasn't available for a month. We went online to VRBO to see if we could find a temporary place to stay that wasn't a "corporate" apartment or a long stay hotel. And we lucked out. First of all this place is exactly as advertised even though the photos really don't do it justice. Spacious and beautifully laid out, it's a renovated loft with the intimacy of old brick walls and expertly reconditioned original hardwood floors combined with all the amenities of modern day living. Located in the Tacoma theater district on Pacific Ave. which has just gone through a great urban renovation itself, it stands out as a great place to stay. With quite a few good restaurants and clubs close by as well as the outstanding Pantages and Rialto theaters, it's easy to find reasons to not leave the area. But if you do, the I-705 freeway entrance is just a block away and if you have a car, a private secure garage is provided downstairs. The owners live in the building also and couldn't have been more accommodating and gracious. The building was originally a warehouse, which they bought 11 years ago totally gutting and remodeling it into beautiful apartments. They're both artists and the space was filled with an eclectic range of their original art as well as other artists. In short, if it wasn't for the fact that our new home is only 10 miles away, we would love to use this place as an occasional getaway. A must for anybody who appreciates warm, inviting, home away from home accommodations without the corporate attitude.

PERFECT URBAN LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We spent 4 weeks this summer at Laura and Marty's condo. Laura and Marty were very helpful in getting us checked in and they are perfect hosts! There when you need them and not when you don't. The Condo is beautiful and perfectly decorated with the owner's art work. A large garage is shared with the owners and there two motorcycles! Laura's is a Ducati! All kitchen appliances are excellent and all the necessary utinsels are provided including excellent cutting knives.

The location is perfect for walkers. Excellent attractions, restaurants and coffee houses are all a short walk away. Every Thursday is Farmers market just one block away. All the necessary fresh produce you'll need for a week's cooking. The Sound Transit light rail is one block away. No cost to ride and covers all of downtown Tacoma including the train station that has the Sounder Train to Seattle. No need to drive your car at all when going to Seattle.

The weather was perfect. Blue skys, mild temperatures and no rain for 30 days! What a great change from the Exteme Heat Warnings that came up daily on the Phoenix weather report. In summary, this is your perfect rental option. We have been renting for several summers and this is the ideal Condo and location made perfect by excellent hosts!

PERFECT CONDO. PERFECT WEATHER. GRACIOUS HOSTS. WE'LL BE BACK!

Perfect condo. Perfect weather. Gracious hosts. We'll be back!
  • 5 of 5
When we arrived at this high-end condo, we were greeted by the owner who offered to help us carry up our luggage. (We're seniors & found the stairs easy to climb.) We were given the keys & were shown how to deal w. the indoor parking space which we were happy to have. When we entered the condo, we were blown away by the beauty and variety of artwork that blended so well w. the exquisite decorating. The owner helped us w. the Wifi info & remote devices for the satellite TV. The open office space is unique, & it's part of the spacious open kitchen, dining area, and living room space. The couch and recliner are extremely comfortable. We were impressed also by all the staples we found in the cabinet in the kitchen, bathrooms and laundry room. The welcoming wine, coffee, and chocolates were generous treats.

We've read all the reviews & agree that they are accurate (esp. how kind and accommodating the owners are.) Just wanted to mention a couple of other features that impressed us. The carpentry work throughout is tops (cherry cabinets & Douglas-fir floors). Having a walk-in closet & drawers combined w. the bathroom was unique. We particularly appreciated the way the generous open closet space & drawers were set up, adjacent to the master bathroom. It made it easy to organize our belongings. Storage was fabulous throughout. AC was excellent & easy to raise or lower.

During our stay, we had mild and beautiful weather, which many parts of our country are not experiencing. The weather was perfect for walks to local museums, restaurants, outdoor markets, the library and shops, and, of course, for walks along the nearby waterways. Appreciated the restaurants and hairdresser suggested by our hosts. All transactions went smoothly, and we received all the info we needed.

Miss our hosts and their gorgeous, unique condo. Hope we have the opportunity to return.
