About Travis Scheff

My name is Travis Scheff and I am a local business owner in the downtown Tacoma area. I live on site in this beautiful 100-year-old historic building.

The Rowland building was completely renovated by Laura Hanan and family to turn it into this beautiful 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. You will find original art work displayed through out the building.

Travis Scheff purchased this condo in 2000

Why Travis Scheff chose Tacoma

Laura Hanan and family 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, pub and brewery row, which proudly includes our own bar and grill, 'The Office', downstairs in the 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.

What makes this condo unique

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.

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."

Fabulous place, great time

  • 5 of 5

Our introduction to Tacoma couldn't have been better. This apartment was luxurious and comfortable, in a great central location. The owners spared nothing to make sure we had every convenience, and the details were all much more upscale than we were used to with your typical vacation rental. We enjoyed many restaurant meals nearby and easily located a good supermarket so we could also prepare meals in the apartment. Big plus: super comfy bed. P.S. Best bakery ever nearby- Corina's. Stay for coffee.

A home away from home; look no further!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I needed to be in the Tacoma area for work and could not have chosen a lovelier place to spend the month of June. The owners, Laura and Marty, are gracious and quite fun! I enjoy cooking and was never in need of anything while preparing a meal- the kitchen is stocked with pots, pans, utensils, etc. When I did not want to cook, it was easy to choose a restaurant from the many within walking distance. Walk a block to Fireman’s Park or just a bit further to Dock Street to enjoy not only water views, but also a picturesque view of Mt. Rainier. The bed is big and comfortable- a comfortable bed is important! Though a car is not necessary, Seattle, Mt. Rainier, Gig Harbor, and many wineries and breweries are easy to access with one. We live over 2,000 miles way and look forward to our next visit!

Seven Months of Comfort

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed staying in Laura and Marty's condo. It was extremely comfortable, especially the big bed, and well stocked with everything we needed for our extended stay, including a yummy surprise for our first night. It is convenient to an assortment of restaurants, grocery stores, superb bakery, and many of the tourist locations that Tacoma has to offer. The Ruston WaterWalk is spectacular and less than 10 minutes away. We really enjoyed getting to know Laura and Marty and look forward to staying in the condo again soon!

Extended stay perfection

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleased that we selected this loft for our visit and family reunion in late August. We found the place to be exactly as detailed and pictured. Laura was a great host and we truly enjoyed her company as well. We had our prized kitty with us and she too enjoyed the stay. There is no question that we will stay again on our next trip to Tacoma; next time will be for a longer stay as well. When you stay, really, spend a few moments and examine the craftsmanship and detail of the woodwork and the finishes. They put quality work in so you can feel comfortable in your surroundings.

Fantastic week in Tacoma

  • 5 of 5

This apartment/Condo was a perfect match for us. The place is gorgeous with exposed brick and hardwood floors. Downtown Tacoma was a great location for us. Laura is very accommodating and we felt very much at home. we plan to return next year and give it our highest recommendation

Tacoma Gem

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this condo for the month of July 2014. We found it absolutely delightful. Our first urban experience. We loved being downtown steps away from great restaurants, museums, farmer's market and interesting walks.

The condo is spacious, comfortable and fully furnished. One only need bring their own clothes and food. Very secure building with a keyed street entrance and a keyed condo door.
