About the Property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Full Bathrooms, 1 Half Bathroom, Sleeps 10

Why stay at a Hotel, when your entire family can stay in the center of the District of Columbia, only blocks from the National Air & Space Museum in the DC waterfront area for Much less! Absolutely wonderful describes this house, a spacious Three-bedroom, 2 full + 1 half baths, 2-level town home located in Waterfront/SW, Washington DC’s beautiful marina district. Just walking minutes from L'Enfant Plaza mall, metro, Smithsonian, museums, and the Mall, this home is close to I-395 going to Virginia and Maryland. Walk to the Cherry Blossoms, the fireworks on the Mall, and the WWII & Vietnam memorials. Boasting a fabulous location, the Smithsonian Vacation House is on a quiet cul-de-sac with off-street parking, yet it is in walking distance to shopping and restaurants. Don't delay, book today! We look forward to servicing you.


This lovely Capitol Hill property offers the option of 2 levels featuring 3 Bedrooms with 2 1/2 Bathrooms or 3 levels featuring 4 Bedrooms with 3 1/2 Bathrooms to accommodate up to 14 guests! Contact us today for details!
