About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Located in the historic Capitol Hill neighborhood, this unit features two bedrooms and one bathroom as well as powder room and can comfortably accommodate a family of six. Once you enter the building there are flight of stairs to get to the living and dining room and than another flight of stairs to get to the bedrooms and bathroom.

The property—situated within walking distance of the U.S. Capitol and the National Mall—is near the center of the Federal City and offers amenities for a comfortable and memorable stay in one of Washington's oldest and most sought-after neighborhoods.

After Georgetown to the west, Capitol Hill is Washington's oldest neighborhood. In its earliest days, most of the residents were members of Congress who lived in boarding houses and dormitories surrounding the Capitol. As the neighborhood evolved, rowhouses replaced boarding houses and the Hill began to grow as a neighborhood filled with families, as well as Washington's who's who. As you walk around this stately neighborhood, don't be surprised if you see faces you've seen in the news. A number of senators and representatives make their home on the Hill.

In addition to the U.S. Capitol, the Hill includes other significant American landmarks such as the U.S. Supreme Court, the Library of Congress, the Folger Shakespeare Library, Union Station, the U.S. Marine Corps Barracks, the Washington Naval Yard, Congressional Cemetery, Lincoln Park, and the Eastern Market. All of these sights are within easy walking distance and most are Metro-accessible on the Orange/Blue line on the southwest side of the Hill and on the Red line through Union Station. Just down the hill from the Capitol is the National Mall with all of the monuments and memorials iconic to Washington, as well as more than 10 museums and galleries of art and artifacts.

To the east of the Capitol is the Eastern Market—one of the only remaining merchant markets left in Washington. While the market bustles during the week, it is on the weekends that it acquires its character and charm as residents from all over the city and visitors from all over the world come to the market to enjoy breakfast; purchase fresh meats, produce, and breads; stroll through the adjacent flea market; and browse the latest art and jewelry crafted by local artists and artisans.

During the spring and summer months, a visit to the U.S. Marine Corps Barracks at 8th and I Streets SE will allow you to see the Marine Corps Silent Drill Team in action. This 24-man rifle platoon performs precision maneuvers with their 10.5 lb M-1 Garand rifles with fixed bayonets.

Over at the U.S. Capitol, the newly opened visitor's center allows visitors to experience the Capitol from the ground up. The center features several state statues in Emancipation Hall and a museum that chronicles the history of the U.S. Capitol from its cornerstone laying in 1789 by George Washington to the present day. Tickets for the Senate and House galleries are available here.

The Library of Congress' Jefferson Building, just across the street from the Capitol, is the world's largest repository of books and media in the world. The building is open to the public and the Renaissance and classical art are breathtaking.

These and other sites make staying on Capitol Hill a must if you're visiting Washington on business or for pleasure.

About The Owner

We are family owned and operated. From the left meet Kate, Jarek (sister and brother) and our mom Dana.

We have lived in Washington for over ten years and love this cosmopolitan city where people get up every morning and get to work on changing the world. The most powerful people in DC can alter the course of history and try to make the world a better place. It's a city where philosophical debate and advocacy of issues beyond one's own family or pocketbook rule the day; a city where what's going on in one's head is far more important than what one is wearing; a city where people come from all over the world to experience democracy and learn the principles of our free society.

We get visitors from all over the country and the world. Some come for one time visit with their family, others keep coming back number of times a year as we host many repeat guests related to the federal government, foreign embassies and the US State Department. We take great pride in having our unit very clean (our mom cleans it, so you know it’s spotless), conveniently located within walking distance to all shopping, restaurants and Metro.

We want you to enjoy your visit whether it is once in a lifetime trip with your family or monthly visit for work. We are looking forward to hosting you in DC and if there is something we can help with, let us know.

Great place for a Family Trip to DC

  • 5 of 5

A family of five found this just right with one person staying on the sleeper sofa (IKEA) in living room. Well decorated. I read some other reviews and yes, almost all the homes in this area are rehabs with narrow, squeaky wooden stairs. It's just part of the homes in this area.

NOTE: If you rent the parking space - be sure to call early to ask how to open the door. You have to enter the home first and then find the remote to do so.

The 10-15 minute walk to the subway wasn't a burden, and there was also a bike rental spot right at the subway as well which we used.

Very Nice

  • 4 of 5

My wife, 3 kids, and I spent 11 days/10 nights in DC. We were there seeing all the museums and monuments and everything else DC has to offer. We opted for a rowhouse instead of a hotel. The accomodations were just what we were looking for. It was clean and neat. We brought in food and cooked many breakfasts and dinners there, even grilling out a few times. The street is a fairly quiet one. The kids loved staying there and playing on the back patio. While being closer to the Metro would have been ideal, the daily walk (7 1/2 blocks) was a beautiful one and went by fast. There's a Starbucks, CVS, Yes Organic grocery store, and the daily market at the Eastern Market (7th/8th and Pennsylvania) to cover most of your daily needs. There's also a coffee shop closeby at 8th and C. I'm sure it's good coffee, but I got "Soup-Natzi'd" for offering a debit card - "No coffee for you!!" - Ouch. Great place. Great time.

Excellent apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Last weekend, my father, partner and I spent the weekend at this great apartment. The bedrooms were large and the layout (bedrooms and full bath upstairs) and (half bath, kitchen and living room) made the apartment feel very spacious and it was easy to sleep even if other people were awake. It is about a 10 minute walk to two different metro lines and the neighborhood is very charming. Kate and Jarek were very prompt and organized making the reservation process very easy. We will definitely stay here again.

A Historic Time

  • 4 of 5

Washington D.C. is a city rich in history. It is also rich in delicious food, awesome bars, and lots of fun. Our stay on Capitol Hill was fantastic. This condo is in a great, quiet neighborhood, which is an easy walk to the Eastern Market and the Metro, which can put you anywhere in the city in a matter of minutes. It's a great central hub for all the Nation's capital has to offer. Would highly recommend this place and will definitely give Jarek and Kate a call the next time I'm heading to D.C.
