Recent Capitol Hill reviews
"The style of the apartment is really nice, rooms are spacious and nicely decorated.
The location is perfect, everything needed is really close and 15minutes walking far from the train station, that's fine.
The point that could improved is to add a few things for the kitchen, one pan, water glasses (many wine glasses and few water glasses!), a few disclothes... ; it was a little bit short to cook for the family.
We really had a great time there and in town. It was our first experience and we were really satisfied."

"Was great... Attractions, Union Station, and tour buses all w/in walking distance. Perfect spot.
Unit was equipped w/ all the basics except food but was easy access to go get.
Ellen was so nice helping us w/ places to order food for delivery after a long day of traveling.
Can't wait to come back to DC & hope this unit will be available"

Great House for seeing the sights in Washington, DC
"The five of us (me, my parents, my husband, and 13 year old son) had a great vacation. You can walk to many of the sights and Union Station is only a five minute walk away for those places that are too far to walk. Lots of great restaurants within walking distance. We especially loved the Toscana Cafe, where each of us got a different meal and they were all delicious. Giant Supermarket was close as well. The Duck Boat Tour (which I recommend) and the Big Bus Tour both leave from Union Station. Secure parking and owner was easy to reach when I had a question."

"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!"
