About the property

One bedroom English basement walking distance to Capitol

Light-filled English Basement one-bedroom apartment blocks from the Capitol and steps to historic Eastern Market, Eastern Market Metro, Barracks Row, and Lincoln Park. Easy access to public transportation, Capital Bikeshare, and much more.

Apartment features large living/dining room, fully-equipped kitchen with modern appliances, washer/dryer in unit, large bedroom with ample closet, and a small coat closet by the front door. Bedroom also has a large dresser and roll-away storage underneath the bed. If more than 2 people are staying, a queen-sized air mattress is available upon request for a small fee. Central air unit quietly provides both hot and cold air.

Don't miss the open air market at Eastern Market on the weekends, plus all of the Market's offerings from Tuesday through Sunday. Award-winning Barracks Row is just a couple blocks away as well featuring nationally-recognized restaurants and boutique shopping.

Also easy walking to the Capitol, Supreme Court, and Library of Congress, plus all the House and Senate buildings. Just a few blocks further- or a short metro ride- and you have all of the National Mall at your disposal, including the Smithsonian museums, National Portrait Gallery, and the monuments.

Please keep in mind that, since this is a basement unit, you will occasionally hear the friendly family upstairs and their friendly dog walking around (but not barking), and that they will occasionally hear you.

About Elby Godwin

I've lived on this block for over 10 years now, and also work in the neighborhood. On a daily basis, I enjoy the easy access to so many places that this location provides. I currently live just up the street from this property.

This property makes it easy to get just about anywhere in the area. You are steps to the Capitol, the House and Senate office buildings, the Library of Congress, Supreme Court, Union Station, Eastern Market, and Barracks Row, plus a metro stop at Eastern Market as well. This is a family-friendly neighborhood, and it's easy to see that many residents value the Capitol Hill neighborhood.

Perfect location. Quaint space. Just enough room to stretch out.

Elby was a great host--communication was swift and easy. Really appreciated the welcome bottle of wine after a long day of travel. He made sure I was able to gain easy entry. Location was a short 8 minute walk to Eastern Mkt metro. Lots of bars and restaurants nearby. Will stay again.

Great Location!

We just back from Washington D.C. We stayed here for 5 days and the location couldn't be better! Elby happened to be arriving just as we arrived also. Our 11 year old daughter used the blow-up mattress we set up in the living room, the bed in the bedroom was very comfortable. The place comes with a temporary parking pass for the area, we were always able to get pretty close to the house. There was also a bottle of wine left for us :) (I had brought my own from Amish country so I didn't open it, but it was a nice touch.) Loved having a full kitchen and washer and dryer to do some laundry. The bathroom door sticks quite a bit, I felt bad for the tenants above as I'm sure they could hear the door being opened and closed. Although D.C. did just have a pretty big storm and it was quite humid. Just be aware you need some muscle to open and shut it. We walked to the Eastern Market for some groceries that we had forgotten to get at Safeway and realized we actually could have gotten everything we needed at the Market, so I would check out the Market before driving to a grocery store. Great restaurants and the subway just a short walk away also. It's nice and clean, nothing fancy, but that was fine with us as we were out and about most of the time anyway. Would definitely stay here again.

Convenient location in lovely neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This apartment in the Eastern Market area was perfect for our sight seeing trip in DC. My college age son and I were very comfortable with the apartment and the quiet neighborhood. The apartment was as described, small, but very adequate for our needs and clean. We felt safe and enjoyed very much the convenience of being close to the Eastern Market metro and the great restaurants in the area. I would definitely recommend this property to others and would hope to return in the future to see more of DC, so much to do and see!

DC stay in March

  • 4 of 5

Great location, good facilities, and very adequate experience. Would stay there again, though would wish they would have cleaned out the front entryway a bit as it needed sprucing up. It did not make a good first impression.
