She's American, he's French and together they've created a special place filled with the best of both worlds.
Owner purchased this Apartment in 1996
Why Owner chose Hill East
Location, Location, Location. We wanted to be close to the action, yet far enough away to enjoy a quiet night of sleep. It's easily accessible to major attraction and highways. The house was originally built in 1920 and totally renovated to include the most up-to-date amenities.
What makes this Apartment unique
The unit is equipped with everything you need. Whatever is missing is only a request away. We're always available to assist. One guest described their visit as 'it was like staying with friends'. On the other hand, if you are totally self sufficient, you'll never see us. Only know we're a text or phone call away.

Great studio apt in nice neighborhood with very helpful owners!
Clean, comfortable apartment with everything you could need from full sized washer/ dryer to a Wii gaming system and HBO. The master bed is very comfortable and our sons each had sofa beds in the living room area that they said were also comfortable. The neighborhood is nice and felt safe.
The owners live right above the apt and were accessible and very helpful, like when we needed to find the nearest grocery store, figure out our map, and get more dish detergent.
The only negative for us was that it’s about a 20 minute walk to the nearest metro and about a 20 minute walk to the Capitol (and several more miles to get to the Lincoln Memorial, etc). With two children, we found it too far to walk everywhere and then walk back to the apartment so we ended up needing to use Uber (about $8-10 per ride).
We enjoyed our stay here.
Perfect for us
Hosts were very nice and informative. Location was perfect, close to Metro and restaurants.
Blocks from the Capitol
This facility was perfect for our family of three, and could easily accommodate a family of four. We took our bikes and were able to bike to the Supreme Court, Library of Congress, and the Capitol in about 7 minutes. Carla welcomed us and made sure we had everything we needed. She has it decorated in a charming, welcoming way. All of the amenities were in great condition and very modern. It is in a quiet neighborhood, and close to the metro and a market place. I would definitely stay at this facility again.
Great place to stay!!
DC was a terrific place to visit, and staying here just made it that much more enjoyable. The place is a great little get away, situated in the perfect location. Very close to everything you want to see, but out of the hustle and bustle of the city. Carla and Fred were wonderful hosts and we had everything we needed for the perfect stay- including very comfortable beds and accommodations. Thanks for helping to make our stay perfect for our family of four!
The owner was extremely helpful and so congenial. We spent a long weekend and were amazed that our location was so close to all the happenings in Washington. We would
definitely stay there again.
We were glad to stay here however there were a few hiccups. One being that there was a strong smell of gas when we arrived. The landlords worked to remedy that very quickly and we were able to be flexible around the arrival of repairman etc. The repairman was only testing the gas around the hot water heater and felt he fixed it. Still, each morning we'd smell gas. Eventually my husband figured out there's a gas leak from the dryer connection which he was able to turn off via the safety valve and correct. The flat is very clean, well lit (it's in a basement so only one window), comfortable beds, nice bedding and sheets. We cook most all our meals and found it challenging to cook only using three basic pots...still we managed. When I couldn't find pot holders or dish towels I texted the owner and she responded right away by phone telling me where to find these. It's helpful too that the Eastern Market is nearby, as well as a Healthfood store...all within walking distance. We used Uber to get to the Museums we wanted to visit. Our rides never cost more than $7.
