About the property

1 BR/1.5 bath renovated English basement apartment in heart of DC's Capitol Hill

Thank you for looking at this lovely 1 bedroom / 1.5 bath, fully-renovated English basement apartment in a 1890s era Victorian rowhouse which has everything you are searching for in a short-term Capitol Hill apartment for business or pleasure.

- Large Living Room / Dining Room - Relax in a very comfortable sofa, oversized loveseat and ottoman. The sofa pulls out into a Queen-sized sofabed with a 2 inch gel memory foam mattress topper. A brand-new 43 inch 1080p LED HDTV is connected to Comcast / Xfinity HD Preferred cable with 220 channels and Performance Internet WiFi. A high top dining room set seats four comfortably. Complete service for 12 is included in the kitchen (dishes, glasses, utensils) so you don't spend all your time doing dishes!

- Kitchen, Laundry Closet and Half Bathroom - A fully-stocked kitchen comes with a full-sized refrigerator, four burner electric range with oven, and dishwasher. Also included is a microwave oven, toaster, coffee maker and complete cookware, bakeware and food storage sets along with all of the other necessities for cooking complete meals for your family and friends. A half bathroom with new fixtures is located just off the kitchen and a full-size washer and dryer along with iron and ironing board are located in a closet in the bedroom.

- Bedroom and Full Bathroom - The bedroom features a Queen-sized platform bed with a nearly new "The W Bed" mattress by Beautyrest, the same mattress used in all W hotels purchased directly from the hotel chain. A Ralph Lauren comforter, lots of pillows, dresser and clothes closet complete the bedroom. The completely new bathroom has a large ceramic tile tub shower combination, new dark wood vanity with solid surface top and integrated sink and modern light and plumbing fixtures.

- Outdoor Space - Right outside the bedroom is another large closet and steps that lead up into a very deep, landscaped back yard with a brick walkway and a large dining table with 4 chairs. This outdoor space is shared with the home upstairs.

- Location, Location, Location - Don't be fooled by listings that say "Capitol Hill" but are located on the fringes; this historic home is right in the heart of this fabulous neighborhood! You'll be a short walk to the world-famous Eastern Market, Massachusetts Avenue restaurants, the Atlas District / H Street NE entertainment area, restaurant-packed Barracks Row along 8th Street SE, Union Station, the US Capitol and Senate office buildings. The nearest grocery store is a brand-new Whole Foods Market approximately 6 blocks away.

Metro's Orange / Blue / Silver and Red lines (via the Eastern Market station and Union Station) are within a 15 minute walk as well as some very convenient Metrobus lines that will take you downtown (D6) or to Adams Morgan / U Street (90/92) conveniently. There are also three or four new Capital Bikeshare locations within a few blocks. Just park your car and walk or metro all over the neighborhood as well as most the DC area including all of the museums and monuments along the National Mall, Arlington Cemetery, etc.

Other features include:

- Original and reproduction artwork primarily featuring Capitol Hill and Washington DC

- Top-rated cleaning and linen service to ensure that sheets and towels are always of the highest quality including extra linens for the sofabed

Please see property 1043953 for the main portion of this home and the reviews (the main home was available for rent prior to this apartment).

I have owned this home since 1999 and currently live just a few blocks away. I have had the privilege to live in this wonderful gem of a neighborhood for nearly 20 years and have several years of experience managing other properties via VRBO / Homeaway. Thank you very much for your interest; I look forward to hearing from you and (hopefully) being your host for a wonderful Washington DC visit.

Very cute apt close to metro stations

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The apartment was clean and a nice size for a family of 3. Having the 1/2 bath was a plus. We didn't use the kitchen to cook, but everything was available. Also, nice to have washer/dryer to do a quick wash on the last day. About 15 min walk to both union station and eastern market metro stations. Neighborhood felt very safe, we were comfortable walking back at night. Bill provided us with a parking pass and we just left our car parked and used the bikeshares (next block over) and the metro to get around. Bill also provided metro cards, which was great to get us started. Only problem we had was that we didn't get any information after booking. I messaged 2x through the app and called the contact number twice before getting Bill. I was a little nervous, but once I finally reached him, he apologized and immediately sent the information. On our day of arrival he texted me and told us we could arrive anytime, as it was ready, and he did text during our stay to see how things were going. Overall, it was a good experience and we would recommend.

Great choice!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this apartment. The location is very convenient to museums, etc, and bike rentals and metro are within easy walking distance. Pretty neighborhood that is definitely becoming even more popular (Trader Joe's, Sephora and good local restaurants).

Although there's only one bedroom, there was plenty of space for our family of four. Our 'tween boys comfortably slept on the foldout sofa in the family room, and the powder- room made having 4 people in a small apartment very manageable! Bed was very comfortable. Kitchen was well appointed and we were able to prepare breakfast every morning before sightseeing.

The owner, Bill, is very hospitable and checked- in by text a few times. He even provided Metrocards and a parking pass for our stay. (we chose not to rent a car until we explored outside the city.)

Thanks, Bill! We hope to return soon, and will definitely recommend to friends visiting the area.

Fantastic and family friendly!

  • 5 of 5

This place was great! Our family of four slept well and loved having the kitchen to make meals. There was plenty in the kitchen to work with. We loved being able to walk (13 minutes) to union station. Doing the big bus tour is a must!! The owner of the property was wonderful, checked in on us and answered all our questions!!

Yes would definitely stay here again!

  • 4 of 5

The basement apartment was cute, clean and comfortable. With our family of four, we enjoyed having the half bathroom. It was in a wonderful neighborhood that was safe and within walking distance to the Supreme Court, U.S. Capital, and Eastern Market. The bed was very comfortable. We appreciated the body wash available in the bathroom and the detergent available to wash clothes.The only negative things we dealt with was the door to the main bathroom needed fixing and would not close properly and we didn't have enough towels for our family. However, even with those two negatives, we would definitely stay in this apartment again!

A true home away from home

  • 5 of 5

One of the best things about staying in a VRBO is being able to feel like you are part of the community and to really get a feel for a place. This is that place. You can walk to the Capitol building and Library of Congress, the metro is 5 minutes away, Trader Joe's an easy 5 minute walk and the local Lincoln Park - which was just lovely to run in and relax in the evening after a big day of sightseeing topped it off. Comfortable and clean and the owner is extremely responsive to any needs or questions. 3 of us stayed in the apartment and it had plenty of room. The TV quality was amazing and internet was great. Loved being able to throw a quick load of laundry in. Would highly recommend. Loved our Washington trip!
