About Julie and Karl Moeller

We have lived in Washington DC for over 20 years and met working in Congress as "Hill Staff". We have three kids who are 10, 13 and 16 years old. Julie is a book loving librarian for the city. Karl has worked in the nonprofit, for profit and government sectors advancing public health.

Julie and Karl Moeller purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Julie and Karl Moeller chose Eastern Market

This is our only property, and we have put a lot of love and attention into it. We've stayed in a lot of VRBO/Airbnb properties on travel and some are run by distant owners or companies. That's just not as fun. We live here, and we love it. This is a local, family owned property that we put a lot of time and attention into -- and we take care of our guests.

What makes this apartment unique

Capitol Hill is a very strong community brimming with long-term local residents. There are coffee shops, restaurants, an open air craft market (weekends), and more -- all an easy stroll away. You won't need a car, and as we don't have a parking space for Unit A we encourage Uber, Metro, and other public transit over street parking. Really - you don't need a car - but if you drive to the city we can help you find long term parking.

FOOD:

Safeway, Trader Joe's, and Harris Teeter supermarkets are 3 and 4 blocks away respectively. A stocked CVS is on the closest corner. Rose's Luxury is currently one of the top US restaurants... and is an 8 minute walk! We love it. On the same street (8th) you'll find plenty of other great choices (Indian, Mexican, Chilean, Greek, steak houses, a beer garden, sports bars, local watering holes, and more). Down the street are the bars frequented by Congressional staff. New hires are the ones showing their ID badges.

The US House and Senate are a 15 min walk, as is the Library of Congress. The East end of the National Mall and the first of many Smithsonian Museums are also walk-able (20 min), or are easily accessible from Metro or any city bus that stops just a half block away.

The metro station (3 blocks) will connect you quickly to any part of the downtown area. By metro, you can be at the Verizon Center (Concerts, Hockey, and Basketball) or the National's Ballpark in about 20 minuets.

A 20 minute walk (passing the historic Marine Barracks) gets you to the Navy Yard area, where you'll find free outdoor concerts on Friday night all summer. Also, the free Naval Museum inside the Navy Yard is well worth showing your ID to get on premise. Nat's stadium is another 5 minutes past the Navy Yard.

Also not too far (10 minutes by Uber or cab) is the booming H Street Corridor in the northern edge of Capitol Hill in Northeast DC. There are a ton of great bars and restaurants in that area, too.

We LOVE this rental property!

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this rental. The location and neighborhood made the trip so enjoyable. It is very close to public transportation, grocery stores, restaurants and Capital Hill. The rental is beautifully designed and thoughtfully arranged to make it comfortable and convenient for guests. The neighborhood is clean, safe and friendly. We were impressed that many of the neighbors greeted us and introduced themselves. This is not a typical rental. We felt very fortunate to stumble across a true gem. We will make every effort to stay in this rental during our next visit to D.C. The quality and comfort are outstanding! You will not be disappointed. Some of the highlights include the comfortable bed, the spacious kitchen, the bright airy living space, the shower, and most of all the hospitality provided by Julie and Karl.

The perfect place for our vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family absolutely loved our stay here. The hosts are very helpful and friendly and they have an organized "manual" with suggestions on things to do in the city, info about the area, etc. My wife and our children were in DC for a trip to visit the city and see the monuments. The metro was within walking distance and took us wherever we needed to be. Also within walking distance were restaurants and two grocery stores. 11/10 would book again if we ever come back to DC.

A Creative & Modern Beauty

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleasantly surprised by this creative and modern beauty in the Capitol Hill district of DC. The unique and fresh interior was fully equipped with a beautiful kitchen and laundry facilities. Loved the specialty shower system, the dual IKEA closet systems were appreciated to totally escape our suitcases, and the roof access with dinner table to enjoy meals outside and for lounging under the stars. Julie and Karl are the very kind owners of this one of a kind property that I think you will love as much as we did.

Great place to stay... Comfortable, convenient and very cool inside and out!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there while visiting DC for my son's graduation from Georgetown Law. Neighborhood is super convenient and close to everything we wanted to do. The house is amazing... loved the modern features! Owner of property was close and very helpful during our stay. When and if we get back to DC I would definitely book this property again.

Great location and design

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay and proximity to everything! Clean and well kept. Cool design and nice rooftop. Liked that there was a Sonos installed. Only downside was the thin ceiling which you could hear people walking and talking.

Beautiful home with all the extras, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this home! It is 3 blocks to the metro, the grocery, and a lot of great pubs, restaurants and cafes. It felt very safe. There are people out walking all the time.

The amenities provided by the homeowner include all the basics + toiletries and a hair dryer, basic cooking spices, oil, etc., a full set of dishes, pots and pans, serve ware and bakeware. The kitchen is beautiful! They’ve got a ROKU TV which lets you log into your fave streaming content like Netflix and Hulu. Board games, cards and Wii are great for the kids. Read the provided home notebook for great tips, maps, etc. We left our metro fare cards in it like the renters before us so that the next family could use them.

The home was perfect for us: 2 adults and 2 tweens. I highly recommend this spot for your DC trip!
