About Morgan

Morgan and Christie.

We've lived on Capitol Hill for he past 10 years and we love the neighborhood because it's very walkable, the residents are extremely friendly, and the houses have old world charm.

Morgan purchased this townhome in 2008

Why Morgan chose District of Columbia (Washington DC)

The Capitol Hill Historic District was voted one of America's 10 Best Neighborhoods by US News & World Report. This house was not rented, or listed on VRBO from 2013 until January 2017, so reviews are not available from that time period

What makes this townhome unique

Enjoy walking to several local attractions such as the Capitol Building, Congressional offices, Library of Congress, and Supreme Court. You can walk, or take 5 minute Uber ride, bus, or subway to the National Mall near Washington Monument and then go to almost any Smithsonian. Several members of Congress live in the neighborhood because it is so charming, with restaurants within walking distance and brick sidewalks. Eastern Market is 3 blocks away and it features an open market on weekends.

Beautiful DC home - perfect for vacation with family

  • 5 of 5

We took our 3 young kids to DC for Spring Break and stayed at this lovely home for the week It has been very recently redone, and everything in the house was impeccable. Beautiful and clean kitchen and bathrooms. A lovely deck and small yard, which were great for the kids. The house is a block away from the Metro, so very convenient for getting around the City. There's a grocery store a couple of blocks away, and many restaurants in Eastern market, which was one metro stop away.

The owners were in touch prior to our arrival, and very responsive to any questions we had about the neighborhood, restaurant recommendations, etc.

Traveling with 3 kids, it was such a great alternative to staying in a hotel room. We would absolutely stay here again!

Great DC row home blocks from the Capitol

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the house. It's a great location close to the Capitol and the Eastern Market. The house has traditional decor and was a great size for our family of five. We would definitely stay here again.

Newly renovated house in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed in this house last week, and everything was great. The house is sparkling with the all-new renovation. The furniture, sheets, bathrooms -- are all new. The owner is very helpful and responsive.


-- excellent location: one block (less than 5 minutes) walk from Potomac Ave metro station, which is a very convenient metro station to be on (orange, blue and silver lines). You can see the Capitol in the distance by stepping only a few steps from the front door! It's about 25 min very pleasant walk to the Capitol.

-- Two large grocery stores nearby, one of them -- Harris Teeter -- almost right at the metro station. It has a large prepared foods section, which makes for easy dinner option. There are also pleasant-looking restaurants very close by, and also the walk from the Capitol to the house is full of them.

-- Lots of light in the house; new furniture. 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms upstairs and one half bathroom downstairs.

-- New fully equipped kitchen. We really liked the kitchen island. It's a great place for feeding kids.

-- Everything is very clean and pleasant. Wi-fi in the house.

-- Very responsive owner. We noticed that there were no microwave or toaster ovens in the house, and both were delivered the next day, even though we even said that we didn't need a toaster, we were just noting that some other renters might want it.


-- hmmm.. can't think of any. There is some funkiness in the master bathroom shower plumbing (to get water that is not too hot, you need to go past very hot), but that's not really a "cons" -- more of something to figure out on the first day. Other than that, the shower is great -- plenty of water pressure and, again, all new bathroom fixtures.

Wonderful Washington Experience!

  • 5 of 5

The home is roomy, up-do-date, and immaculately clean. One thing we hate to do in a hotel is allow our children to walk without shoes/socks or slippers. Since the home's floors are finished in wood (tile in the bathrooms), I knew they were as clean as they looked.

We were so close to the capitol, that we were able to leave our van parked and walked everywhere one of the days. A small market district was just at the end of the block and across a couple of crosswalks. Meals were easily had at the local eateries.

The owner was able to answer all of my questions via e-mail or telephone before and during our visit. He's really down-to-earth, and it was a pleasure doing business with him... and WAY better than staying in a hotel!

A couple of things to know: Parking is a bit tricky, but the owner provides one residential guest permit, so you don't have to walk far when you find a spot. Plan on moving your vehicle on Wednesday and Thursday mornings for street cleaning. We had a 12-passenger van and still managed to park very close to the home each day.

In the summer, the back bedroom gets warmer than the others, but there is a fan provided in the laundry room downstairs. We used it!

My family and I loved this house, and would gladly recommend it to anyone traveling with a large group, for a few days or an extended stay. You'll get a lot of space for a lot less money, and a great place to rest your weary feet after a long day of sightseeing.
