About the Property
2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4
Explore all that DC has to offer while staying in a charming furnished 2 BR/1 BA, two-story home, originally constructed in 1899. This home is located in East Capitol Hill, two short blocks off the Orange and Blue Metro lines (Potomac Ave Station), and just North of Pennsylvania Ave.
The home features a living room, a separate dining room, and a kitchen stocked with pots and pans as well as a washer and dryer located on the first floor. There are two bedrooms, one with a queen-sized bed and the other with two twin beds, as well as a full bathroom upstairs. If you get tired of sightseeing with so many wonderful museums and monuments on Capitol Hill, you can people watching from the front porch and say 'Hi' to your friendly neighbors. This is cozy comfort in a historic home (updated with central air & heat, of course!).
We provide a Welcome Guide upon confirmation of your reservation with helpful details about your apartment, neighborhood and Washington to ensure that you get the most out of your visit.
• Sleeps 4 (2 bedrooms: One has 2 twin beds, the other is queen-size)
• Hardwood floors; work space; full kitchen
• First-floor washer dryer; linens; ironing board
• Patio for outside dining

A 10-15 minute Metro ride gets you to the National Mall with its eleven (11) Smithsonian Museums, numerous Memorials (Jefferson, Washington, Lincoln, King, sculpture gardens, fountains, botanical gardens and green space.
In addition, you can stroll up Pennsylvania Ave to historic Eastern Market for food, shopping, weekend farmer's and crafts markets, and fun. You'll love the walk back to this home-away-from-home after dining at any of the cute restaurants on Barrack's Row.
You won’t need a car! Nearby Union Station is a transportation hub for the mid-Atlantic region. The station contains two train lines (AMTRAK and local MARC trains). Union Station is also home to Washington’s subway Metro Red Line; Metro and Circulator buses; tour operators; and rental cars and bikes. And in addition to plentiful MetroBus stops all along Capital Hill streets, Capital BikeShare makes bike rental a breeze. Or if you do want to drive (for an hour-long outing, or a longer trip outside the city to Monticello or Gettysburg), consider registering online for Car2Go or Zipcar--flexible alternatives to traditional rental cars.
We do not have parking at this location. We do not have a parking pass. If you are bringing a car, restricted street parking is available during the day for up to 2 hours. Over-night parking is unrestricted. If you are driving, please consider parking at Union Station (or using Car2Go for transportation needs).

About: My business is LUXbnb, we offer short-stay properties in wonderful neighborhoods in Northwest Washington including those areas in high demand by visitors, i.e. DuPont Circle, Georgetown, Palisades and Capitol Hill. We offer studios to full homes for stays of 4 nights up to 8 months. Let us know your travel plans and we will find the best fit for your needs. Be generous and share the knowledge of LUXbnb, your source for short-stay rentals in Washington, with your friends, family and colleagues. Our latest addition are vacation properties for Washingtonians. See the Washington Vacations section on our website for homes in the nearby mountains. Take a few days away from the bustle of the city to explore our bucolic countryside little changed over the past 2 to 3 centuries. Visit wineries and orchards, significant Civil War battlefields and historic towns, hike the Apalachian Trail or follow in the footsteps of our founding fathers by visiting their homes. There is plenty to do that beckons you to leave the city for a weekend or a week. A bit about me...I am a former Californian who, after 12 years in DC, is now an honorary Washington native. Being well traveled both domestically and internationally has given me a great appreciation for the enrichment contact with others brings to our experience. I am well-versed on the 'must-see' sights, monuments and museums of our culturally rich city, along with the unique experiences your find only in Washington. We share that insight with our guests in our property Welcome Guides which we send upon confirmation. We very much enjoy hosting visitors to our Nation's Capital and ensuring that they are able to make the most of their visit. Charlotte Perry Founder, LUXbnb Your short-stay source in Washington.
