I have lived on Capitol Hill in this home for the past 11 years and absolutely love the neighborhood! I have also put a lot of work into the house to make it a truly modern and comfortable dwelling. Since I live and work close by I am available to attend to any needs that our guests might have and welcome the opportunity to offer suggestions and tips on tours, restaurants, area events, etc.
Christie purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Christie chose Eastern Market
The location is fabulous and convenient to everything! The Capitol Hill Historic District was voted one of America's 10 Best Neighborhoods by US News & World Report. The neighborhood is extremely picturesque with historic townhouses dating back to the early 1800s; brick sidewalks canopied by beautiful mature trees make walking the area a true delight! Also mass transit is available literally around the block and there are so many fantastic restaurants within walking distance! (FYI - 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 Apartment unique
Enjoy a 3 minute walk to several local Capitol Hill attractions such as the Capitol Building, Congressional & Senate offices, Library of Congress and Supreme Court. Also just steps away, guests can find bus stops and a bike share station to explore the city. There are also two metro stations (Eastern Market and Capitol South) only 4 blocks away. Supermarkets, liquor stores and shops are all within a 3 minute walk. Eastern Market, featuring it's weekend farmer's market and craft fair is a popular attraction for locals and tourists. Also, you might just spot a Congressman or Senator as many members of the House and Senate live on my street and in the neighborhood!

Pleasant, safe, beautiful, well-equipped
Nicely furnished 1865 home with many updates. Very comfortable, quiet and secure. Lovely residential neighborhood good for a stroll and all needed services within walking distance. Also easy walking distance to the US Capitol. Only bit of a downside was entrance to bathroom through smaller second bedroom but a small price to pay. Neighborhood safe and with gorgeous older homes.
Fantastic in every way
This property is a gem! Short walk to metro, the cutest, safe, and most convenient neighborhood. Great restaurants and a church nearby, and nice farmers market/Eastern market. Our 7 and 10-year-old children had a great time. Plenty of room for a family to stretch out in after a long day enjoying the sights in DC . Christie was a fabulous host and very accommodating. Super bonus to have parking right outside the door. We hope to be back again !!
As close to home as you can be in the big city
We are homebodies so when we were looking for a home to rent in Washington DC we had a lot of requirements. We wanted quiet, secure, quaint, easy walkable access to the national mall, a kind and available host, lots of hot water, a kitchen big enough to pull off simple meals, with sleeping and living space enough for a family of four who really like each other to spend a few days together. We experienced all of the above including our host, Christie who is more like a lovely big sister who is happy to have us around! And since we are dog people, Christie even gave us access to her Belinda! Staying in Christie‘s home give us enough energy to do day and night touring of our nations capital, nearly doubling what we could see and do. Thank you Christie!
Great Location and Very Cozy!!
This booking lived up to the description and more! We visited in mid March 2018 and the temps were unusually low. With 3 space heaters, we were perfectly comfortable and warm. A great location! Less than 5 minute walk to restaurants, coffee shop, and a small grocery store. Located in a beautiful neighborhood, we felt safe at all times. The owner was great and made sure we felt welcome. We didn't need to reach out for anything because everything we needed was already provided for us. We would recommend this property to all of our friends and family and would definitely book again next time we come to DC!!
Cozy convenient and comfortable
The flat is in such a great part of town. We had some scheduling issues on our end but our host Christie was helpful and accommodating, so we all had a fantastic visit. Much appreciated
Clean, cozy and located in the perfect spot!
This home is so inviting and had everything we needed! The owner was friendly and accommodating and the neighborhood is beautiful and so quiet. The home is about a 6 minute walk from the metro which took us everywhere in D.C. we needed to go. It’s also very close to some great restaurants like ‘We the Pizza’ and ‘Good Stuff Eatery.’ I highly recommend staying at this wonderful home!
