This wonderful kitchen had everything I needed! 02/06/2015

VRBO Bear stayed here:


I loved my stay at Capitol Hill! The area around H Street was fantastic. The rental was very close to the Metro station, which allowed easy access to restaurants and attractions.

The vacation rental itself was great! Checking in and out was a breeze, and the property had everything I needed. The bedroom, living room, and kitchen provided a cozy and comfortable living place; the fireplace and heated floors made it a perfect setting with the cold weather outside. Monica was extremely attentive and made sure everything was accounted for during my stay. I highly recommend this Capitol Hill vacation rental to anyone who wants to visit Washington D.C.!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: My husband is an architect and I am a graphic designer. We've raise two kids on the Hill and now they are off to college. We've lived in this neighborhood for over 25 years and absolutely love it!

Why the Owner Chose Capitol Hill:
Capitol Hill is our home. We love it and know you will too!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Capitol Hill is a wonderful neighborhood full of pocket parks and beautiful old homes. Beyond the monuments and museums there is another side to Washington. It's a wonderful family neighborhood and a vibrant community with small businesses. We love walking to Eastern Market on the weekends to get fresh fruits and veggies. Don't miss the fresh pasta! We take a stroll through the flea market visiting our favorite vendors and then sit with a good cup of coffee and watch the world go by. I love to cook and we both love to eat! Washington has lots of restaurants with every possible ethnic variety available. H Street, NE just a few minutes away has many nice options from Asian to Ethiopian to Belgian. On 8th Street SE you will find great burgers, seafood and homemade pop tarts. We love to walk and have recently given up our car. The public transportation options are so plentiful we just didn't need it anymore. You can go by Metro, bus, or Bikeshare. If you need a car for a few hours Zipcars are plentiful and close by. If you need a car for a day trip car rental options are plentiful at Union Station. and for those who come to DC by car there is off street parking at Union Station a 10 minute walk away.
