Great location and property.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful home base to explore tourist sites and enjoy local restaurants. Comfortable, clean and airy. Back yard looked quite inviting to enjoy a sip, but weather didn't cooperate... next time. Bourbon Cafe is a sure bet for coffee and breakfast, and Cava Mezze is a tasty small-plate Greek restaurant on 8th St.

Homey home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This Home was great at the end of busy days of sightseeing. The metro was very close and even accommodated a rented handicap scooter for an injured member of our party. The Eastern Market was just around the corner and great for purchasing fresh fruits and veggies, fresh eggs and bread...even freshly made paninis and yummy soup. The weekend at the market moth more produce, crafts and other goodies were fun. On those nights we ate out there were abundant choices within 2-5 blocks. Very convenient location. Comfortable surroundings and very clean and orderly. Bob was a great host and has even offered to mail a forgotten sweater to me. Nice experience.

Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here in October 2017 while on business travel (and decided to bring my family with me so they could enjoy the sights while I worked). This was the perfect property - a truly fantastic location with so many restaurants within a few blocks walking distance, as well as the Eastern Market metro stop only a block away, which made the rest of D.C. completely accessible. Bob, the owner, was super accommodating and courteous when we met him upon check-in. The property is extremely comfortable and well-appointed. Will definitely return for my next trip!

We had to move furniture a little so we would not fall down the step to front rm. No screens in back bedroom and door to back yard. Water damage is bad BUT saying all that your place is lovley. We would stay again.

Our stay

  • 5 of 5

My co-workers and I had to be in DC for a week of training and rented this beautiful townhouse. It's a great location, can walk to restaurants and the waterfront if you want. Ted's Bulletin is a must for dinner one night. There were 3 of us that stayed here and it was very comfortable and safe. Uber is the way to go in this area if you aren't walking. Taxis were much more expensive. Parking out back is perfect if you plan on going and parking and not getting back in your car until you leave. Again, very safe and very comfortable. Well stocked kitchen and coffee nook! We loved staying here. Wish we could have done more sightseeing instead of work! Owners very responsive to questions as well.

About Bob

A long-time DC and Hill resident, recently retired, about to take time out and travel. Can't part with my DC home but willing to share it with guests so they can appreciate the Hill as I do. Ask me about my favorite places ...besides the 'Must See's'. The Peacock Room, Yard's Park, 8th & I, The Gargoyle Tour at the National Cathedral ...

Bob purchased this townhome in 2001

Why Bob chose Eastern Market

This is a 'newer' property, built in the 60's (that would be the 1960's not 1860's with great design bones. For me it was all about the location but walking in and seeing the sun streaming thru the east facing French doors to the back garden... I was hooked at first sight.

What makes this townhome unique

Can not possibly be a more convenient location. An easy walk down 'The Hill' (and Metro back UP) to spend the day at the museums and sights. Visit at the Nations Capitol and all the world class museums then return back to a village setting with restaurants and small town convenience.

Such a great neighborhood, Eastern Market for old fashioned Merchant Stall shopping (Butcher, Bakery, Cheese Monger, Seafood, Pasta vendor, Vegetables), an Organic Supermarket 2 blocks South ('Yes' Organics). Walk to either of 2 artisan coffee shops or a Starbucks or even a Dunkin Donuts a block away. The true 'Heart' of our community is the weekly Arts/Crafts and Farmers Market on Sat & Sun. Everyone at least walks thru the stalls to see what the world has on offering and to catch up with the neighbors over coffee and fresh donuts or the famous Blueberry Pancakes at the Market Lunch in Eastern Market.. be adventurous.. try the Scrapple!

There are over 2 dozen places to eat on the blocks of Pennsylvania Ave and on Barracks Row, Gastro Pubs, Sports Bars, Restaurants, Oyster Houses, gelatto, cupcakes, sidewalk cafe, rooftop beer gardens you won't be able to sample them all in one visit. But best of all, every time you come 'Home' you get to see the Capitol Dome just a few blocks away letting you know you are truly in DC.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A Perfect "Homebase" for exploring DC. We walked many miles, experienced many new and historic places together as a family and felt at peace when we returned her for the evening. We appreciate you "Heart" to us and others as we experienced the area.

Minutes from both local and National landmarks. Base your visit in a warm and vibrant neighborhood location yet be only a few minutes walk to the Capitol and the National Mall. There are numerous grocery stores, restaurants and shopping within walking distance. The area is indeed a 'Walkers Paradise" and even has two racks of bright red CitiBike public bicycles a block from the door. This is a comfortable and well-appointed family friendly historic house that even has a back patio and grill.
