Recent Capitol Hill reviews
Loved Our Stay!!!
"The location of the townhouse is within easy walking distances to many of the tourist areas as well to the Metro. We used the blue line from Ronald Reagan Airport to Capitol South without having to change trains. Restaurants and convenience stores are also within walking distance. The area felt safe, even when we were out later in the evening (we were both 55+ women). The unit was clean, and beds were comfortable. It was so quiet throughout the night! The combo washer/dryer was a bit confusing for us, but we managed to figure it out. We didn't have any difficulties with the Internet, which was important to maintain contact with family. I highly recommend this townhouse."

"My daughter and I traveled to DC (first time for us), and we wanted to stay someplace other than a hotel. This house was perfect for us in every aspect. We immediately felt right at home! The house is close to everything you need for a sightseeing tour of the city. The hosts have really outdone themselves with this house-so comfortable and wonderfully decorated. We exhausted ourselves daily with sightseeing, and it was awesome to come home each evening to this property. The kitchen has EVERYTHING that guests would want for eating in; in fact, we could not believe how well stocked the kitchen was, right down to the coffee filters and welcome beverages. We spent 7 nights in this lovely home and wanted for nothing. This rental definitely set the bar really high for my future vacation rentals."

"We had a wonderful time in DC. After an action packed day, we were glad to come back to a calm relaxing home. The house was clean and worked well for a family of 4. One of my favorite memories is sitting outside watching the fire flies. The kitchen was fully equipped and we were able to cook or bbq several of the nights. Good location, we didn't have a car and didn't feel like we needed one - easy walk to the Metro. Felt very safe. Great vacation!!"

"Honestly, this was not our first choice in property/location, but we were happy with how it worked out. It was pretty much spot on with what we expected from the description and other reviews. Sherman was very helpful in getting us settled and making sure we had everything we needed. The house has quite a bit of character, and we were impressed with how quiet it was. The kitchen indeed had pretty much everything we needed and appliances were all in good shape. Beds were comfortable. There's a parking pass available for on-street parking, as well as room for one car off street in the back (you may be able to squeeze 2 smaller cars in the back, but its tight).
The street does have a bit of a rough appearance with bars on the windows...but overall we felt safe. The walk to the New York Ave (NoMa-Gallaudet) Metro station was an easy one. The Harris Teeter was also within walking distance and a perfectly safe walk, especially if you stick to Florida Ave which leads into a much nicer neighborhood as you head east than if you walk south on North Capitol which maintains a rougher feel and has more people hanging around the sidewalks. Getting to Union Station or the Capitol Building would be a bit more of a hike if walking, but still technically doable. We stuck to the Metro.
There don't seem to be a lot of nice eat in places nearby, although we didn't look too hard. There's plenty of fast food options within walking distance...as well as a great BBQ place we hit up the night of our arrival, DCity Smokehouse, just around the corner.
Only a couple of negatives. The back porch seemed a bit shaky, and I wouldn't have been comfortable having more than 1 or two people on it. I do believe someone was coming by the morning of our departure to look at it though, so that may be getting addressed. We had some issues getting the 2nd floor comfortable on a couple of the nights after what was probably the first hot days of the season. Sherman responded to me very quickly when I texted him about it...and was willing to come right over and look at the A/C, although we had him wait until the morning since we had kids already asleep. I'm not sure if he found any issue as we weren't there during the day, but it may have had more to do with the programming of the thermostat than the A/C itself. Ultimately blocked some of the 1st floor vents which seemed to make the 2nd floor more comfortable.
So despite a couple of small things we had a very pleasant stay!"
