We just returned from staying is this VRBO rental. Of our many experiences with VRBO, this one was not as good as the rest. The location of the house was fine - close to metro, capitol, and eastern market. We felt the general condition of the home could have been better. The front porch lights did not work - made it dark at night. Several of the light fixtures were hanging from the ceiling i bedrooms. The second bedroom was very small. The toilet chain broke or came undone about 20 times during our stay. The cabinet door under the kitchen sink was not attached to the wall. The kitchen lacked real implements for cooking. Overall, the place just seemed to lack a high level maintenance and seemed to be a 'rental' with a rental feel. A good rental but far from the great experiences we have had in the past with other locations. Oh and the other thing, we arrived on a very cold night, the temperature in the house was 56 degrees - trying to figure out how to use the heaters was a challenge...thought the owner could have left a note or instruction sheet.

Our family of five stayed here for 6 nights and it was a perfect spot from which to enjoy DC. Boaz was very helpful and easily accessible. His suggestions for nearby restaurants were great, and it was an easy, well-lit walk to them. We were also within very close walking distance to a small grocery and to Starbucks. I enjoyed jogging just a few short blocks to the capitol and then around the National Mall and felt very safe in the neighborhood. We were also very close to the Capitol South metro stop which we used daily. The home was very clean, the beds comfortable, and when I asked for more towels they were there within an hour. Overall we had a great experience and would stay again and recommend it to others. Thank you, Boaz.

Our family of 4, myself, husband & 2 daughters, 17 & 19 stayed here for 5 nights in June. This is a great location, 2 blocks to metro, Bull Feathers Grill and Subway, and 3-4 to the Capitol and Library of Congress. Walked to Eastern Market, wish I would have done it earlier in the week to get fruit for the week, the little store 2 blocks down had terrible fruit, but was good to buy soda, bagels and snacks for the house. About a 3 block walk up to Pennsylvania Ave to Starbucks, We, the Pizza, Good Stuff Eatery, etc. The beds were comfortable. One daughter slept in the bed upstairs and one on the pull out downstairs, there is a feather bed in the closet to make it more comfortable. There was plenty of toilet paper and paper towels and the kitchen is well stocked with glasses, plates, etc. The bathroom was nice, great big shower! There was an iron and ironing board in the master bedroom, came in handy. We walked to Union Station, probably about a 15/20 minute walk. The photos are definitely right on. We thought the couch was comfy. When we got there the home was nice and clean. Boaz was very nice and easy to get in touch with. We would definitely consider staying here again or recommend it to friends or relatives. Loved DC!!! If you have any questions, please feel free to get in touch with me.

This was a VRBO disappointment. There were stinkbugs and mosquitoes in the bedroom and kitchen. The house was dirty and dusty. All of the closets smelled of smoke. The remodeling work was of poor quality and finishing work remained to be done. Paint was peeling, fixtures were rusting, a switch panel turned hot whenever we turned the light on, and the toilet seat was too small for the large toilet. It takes a while to get hot water. All the IKEA furniture is poorly assembled. When we let the owner know that an inset light fixture was dangling from the ceiling over a bed, he said it wasn't a safety hazard. The second bed was bare and crammed into the room. The rental unit downstairs was also noisy and separated by a door that doesn't close all the way. This is an old building remodeled on the cheap with poor maintenance and housekeeping. It's located on the border of a sketchy neighborhood but was close to the Capitol South Metro Station. The grocery store the owner recommended was barred on the windows and doors and resembled a corner store out of East Central L.A. Next time, we'll stay in a nicer part of DC, such as northwest DC.

My fiance and I rented this home for two weeks in early January. We were in DC on business and looking for an alternative to the bleak hotel scene. The house was lovely -- we appreciated the fireplace, high quality linens, excellent kitchen facilities and comfortable furnishings. The location was ideal, two blocks east of the Capitol Hill South metro and about four blocks west of Eastern Market metro. Great restaurants, shops, parks, gym -- all within easy walking distance. The owner was flexible, accessible, and very helpful. Great VRBO experience.

My friend and I stayed here during our touristy trip to DC and we were both very pleased with the apartment. The floorplan was perfect, the beds and sitting area was very comfortable, very clean, well-supplied kitchen, and we loved the brief walk to the Metro station. It is also a nice walk to the Eastern Market, Folgers Theater, and a nearby store. Our only advice to others will be to ensure you have solid driving directions to the apartment for cab drivers. We had to get out the gps system on our phone a few times to guide them as the address seemed to be confusing to several. Oh and pick up your own paper products....paper towels & toilet paper supply was minimal unless we just couldn't find it.

This is a wonderful home in a perfect location to explore Washington, D.C. The Metro (Blue Line - which is the line of the Smithsonian station) is just over a block away. The Capitol is within walking distance. Several nice restaurants are also within walking distance, and a nice park is across the street. The home is well equipped and very comfortable. Boaz was a great host, very responsive to our questions and the home was ready for our arrival. I would highly recommend staying at this home and we hope to return soon.

Talk about being away from home, you would love this place. Amazing, 2 parks across the road, lots of fun in the park. Parked our car on arrival, never moved it until check-up. Tuff to find a place like this one. We had our daughter and son-in-law, with us, we all had a grand time. I read in one of the reviews, "the only disappointment was could not stay any longer," I agree to that quote. Nice kitchen, dining area, living room all in one. Plenty of closet space, convenient to everything, and a SAFE Place to say. Everyone gave us scare tactics before we left for DC. That was all it was, we were out till 8:30 one evening. I have had more hello's and smile's than I have seen in years. Very nice place, we shall return. Thank you DC for a grand time. Donald and Joanne

Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: Dear guest, We purchased this historic house in 2004, and spent a year gutting and renovating it, trying to maintain its historic character while introducing modern living. We live two blocks away from the house, and are always there to help when you need something.
Why the Owner Chose Capitol Hill:
We chose this house because we love the Capitol Hill neighborhood. It is located so close to many DC attractions, yet still maintains a quiet, friendly neighborhood feeling. This particular house also overlooks Folger Park, which gives it a unique feel of privacy.
