Don't stay in a hotel! You and your family will be far more comfortable in a three bedroom town house in historic Capitol Hill. Walking distance to the Capitol, the Smithsonian, Metro and TONS of restaurants.
Available during summer holidays only, late June to late August. This is home to a family of four, but we only live here during the school year. In summer, we live on our boat in Annapolis.
Here's what your life could be like if you're able to join us for a week this summer:
Wake up early in the morning and jog to the Lincoln Memorial to watch the sun rise from the spot where Dr. King delivered his I Have a Dream speech.
Pick up some bagels or fresh bread on the way home (or bake your own, don't forget, this is a fully furnished kitchen.)
After breakfast, walk to Union Station (five minutes) to rent bikes for your daylong tour of the National Mall. In 10 minutes, you'll be at the Air and Space Museum, the National Gallery or anywhere on the mall. Meet for lunch outside at the beautiful Sculpture Garden cafe. Grab a kite from the gift shop at the Air and Space Museum, and spend the afternoon flying a kite on the mall. Or jump on the metro at Union Station, and the whole city is accessible.
If it's a Friday night, ride the bikes to Yards Park, near the new Nationals baseball stadium, and take in a free concert. Or leave the kids with a sitter (we can make recommendations) and head to the hot new neighborhood around H Street or Barrack's Row for drinks and dinner.
A brand new Giant is two blocks away and Washington's first street car line will pick you up two blocks from the house to take to shops and restaurants along H Street.
We love living here and you will too. My wife and I will be your informal advisers on restaurants, sites, transport, baby sitters and more.
Welcome to Washington!

About the owner: I am a sales manager at a large corporation and my wife is a professional musician and professor at a state university in Maryland. Our two children (12 and 15) have been raised here.
Why the Owner Chose Capitol Hill: We live here, this is our home. In the summer time, we live on our boat in Annapolis Maryland on the Chesapeake Bay. Since our home is in such a terrific location, we have found that other families very much prefer staying here to squeezing into a hotel room for their vacation in Washington. (There's an apartment in the basement with a separate entrance where I may stay a night or two a week, depending on my business obligations.)
The Unique Benefits at this House: You will enjoy all the conveniences of a fully furnished home. Order in or cook at home, you'll have everything you need from dishes and cutlery to spices and kitchen tools.
