About Meaghan Chada

We are a military family of four that has called DC home for more than 10 years. Although originally from Chicago and California we consider ourselves true Washingtonians and are excited to share the city and our property with you!

Meaghan Chada purchased this house in 2001

Why Meaghan Chada chose District of Columbia (Washington DC)

We originally rented this property but quickly decided to purchase it because of the perfect location and proximity to everything we love in the District. We were pleased that it was on a quiet residential street, but at the same time located only steps from our favorite sights, restaurants, and the convenient Metro system. This was the first house we purchased as a married couple and our kids loved spending their early years here.

What makes this house unique

This house perfectly combines a warm neighborhood feel with the excitement and energy of the city. The location is simply ideal and offers the best of everything.

This is the place to stay in DC!

  • 5 of 5

You have to stay in this beautiful row house! It's as exactly pictured! The beds were comfortable and ample space in the dressers and closets. Each bedroom was provided 2 sets of towels for the bathroom and were in beautiful, like-new condition. The shower was wonderful in the downstairs full bath. Don't overlook the hooks over the tub when looking for a spot to hang washcloths and towels.

The kitchen was very well appointed, along with 3 coffee samples and all the coffee condiments. We used Peapod for grocery delivery and was very pleased with the experience. If you won't be at home during one of their many delivery windows, they do offer unattended delivery. Just ask them to leave the groceries under the front porch steps.

The living room and eating area were spacious and comfortable. My only wish is if there was an ottoman in the living room that I could use as a footrest while reading the paper while sitting in the comfy chair; it could also double as another seating surface too.

The row house is in the lovely quiet and historic Capitol Hill district. There are train tracks a few blocks away and you will hear the train running around 6:20am and about once or twice an hour in the morning and evening. I'm used to hearing trains so it didn't bother me.

The Metro stop (Blue-Capitol South) is a quick two block walk. We stayed Thursday-Monday and never found the Metro overly crowded. Across the street is a bike rental station. We also used Uber with no problems (~$37 one way ride to Mount Vernon) as well as the Circulator to visit many of the monuments. Get a SmarTrip Card at any Metro Stop to make using the Metro and the Circulator a breeze. Each person must have their own card. We got in late the first night and enjoyed a family dinner at Tortilla Coast, which is a 2 block walk. It's a neighborhood restaurant and also has a children's menu.

If we ever get back to D.C. we will most certain stay here again!

Amazing Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at Shawn and Meaghan's place on Capitol Hill. The location is absolutely the best around. It's just a short walk to the US Capitol Building, Smithsonian Museums and the Metro Station is just around the corner. We felt like we were in the heart of it all. The home itself is beautiful -- stylish furnishings, an updated kitchen, super-comfortable bedding, and very clean. There was plenty of space for our family to spread out. We will definitely be staying here on our next visit to DC.

Great Location!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a find! My husband has an office in DC and is there several times a month and I join him occasionally. We recently took my sister and her son to celebrate his graduation from high school. This was a perfect location for our group. We were able to spread out and rest after long days of sightseeing. My sister had a car and the owners made sure we had a parking permit for the neighborhood. It could not have been easier! We are very familiar with D.C. and have decided that this was a perfect location...We walked over to the capital one night and enjoyed the sunset while listening to the Armed Forces band.

It was so nice to have such a well stocked unit...we use VRBO a lot and this isn't always the case. We might have found our new favorite place to stay in DC!

Great place and location! Quaint place and great experience with owner. The only issue we had was the shower and water on the floor. Slippery. But worth it!

Perfect place in the heart of the Capitol!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time in D.C. ... made even better staying at 408 S Capitol!!! A moments walk to the Capitol Building, this home was immaculate and very well appointed. Comfortable beds & a superb A/C made for great sleeping. Great shower too! The owners were very responsive and helpful ... there's a wonderful "Welcome" binder with great info that helped make our siteseeing seamless.

2 tips - (1) Bring good walking shoes! D.C. Is an easily walk-able city but the right footwear makes all the difference ... trust me (ow!). (2) Book tours before you come. The Monuments by Moonlight tour on Old Tiwn Trolley was the highlight of our trip!!! We also arranged a tour of the Capitol and (luckily) of the East Wing of the White House through our local US representative's office months before our trip ... both were wonderful!!

All-in-all ... we had an amazing trip and would highly recommend 408 S Capitol SE and it's wonderful owners. I travelled with my husband, our two kids (10 & 12) and my parents (ageless!). We all loved the trip & home, and hope to be back, for sure!

Great location and great house.

  • 5 of 5

It was perfect for my wife and I with our two teenagers. We walk to the museums if we wanted or Uber and Lyft were only $5 to $7.
