Overview

About the property

Spread out and enjoy a light-filled, open space with large windows. Cozy up to a real fire in the fireplace or enjoy a glass of wine in the outdoor seating area. Well-appointed rooms make you feel right at home. Fabulous amenities for single users and families alike.

Full kitchen with dishwasher, stove, oven, microwave, refrigerator, programmable coffee maker. One full bedroom with a queen bed, wardrobe and sizable closet. Bedroom also includes a washer and dryer, so you can keep your clothes nice and fresh during your stay. The main living area includes a sleeper sofa with pull-out queen bed. There is also an extra crib mattress for accommodating little guests. Pack-n-play and high chair are available upon request.

Cable TV, DVD player, Ipod docking station and speaker all allow for full entertainment. A lending library and games selection also will help keep you amused. For the younger set, a large cabinet is stocked with games, toys, blocks and books.

The bathroom has a full-size shower and tub combination, so you can take a hot soak after a long day of museum visits or sightseeing.

The house sits on a corner lot which allows for lots of light and a wrap-around yard. The side yard is equipped with a seating and dining area, and cushions are ready to tote outside and make it comfy. Kids can run and play in the side yard or step across the street to the 'pocket park' with a mini-ropes course, swing, rope ladder, and balance beam. Walking one block northwest, you find Lincoln Park with a gorgeous statue of Lincoln freeing a slave and Mary McCloud Bethune. Lincoln Park boasts a beautiful view of the U.S. Capitol down historic East Capitol Street and is a great destination for exercise or playground time.

In the immediate neighborhood, you will find a gourmet bakery and coffee shop, a pretzel bakery and a full-service grocery store (with a Starbucks coffee shop inside) all within 2 blocks.

Walking west on Independence Avenue just 7 blocks, you find yourself at the historic Eastern Market where you can shop old-world style including a butcher, cheese shop, florist, bakery, deli and grocer. On weekends, the whole area comes alive with food vendors, a flea market, artists, hand-crafters, farmers and so much more. It is both a destination and the journey.

If fitness is a priority, you can easily find a great workout here on the Hill. Great walking and running routes extend both east and west from the property. You can easily run to the National Mall - 3 mile loop to the Capitol and back; 6 mile loop to the Lincoln Memorial and back. Other options include linking bridges and trails along the Anacostia River, passing Nationals Stadium and strolling through the Navy Yard area.

If leisurely or functional activity is what you're after, Capitol Bikeshare is a great option. You can buy a membership for a day, week or month and have access to bikes all around the DC metro area. You check out a bike from one station, drop it off at another and make a day of adventuring while saving your feet, covering more ground, and seeing more sights in less time. A bikeshare station sits just across the intersection from the rental property.

The property is in easy walking distance (15 ~ min) to the U.S. Capitol, Library of Congress, and Folger Shakespeare Library. A slightly longer walk (25~30 min) and you arrive at the National Mall and the Smithsonian museums.

To go a little further in your explorations, you can access the Metro and see all the sights. The rental property is just 5 blocks from Potomac Avenue metro station and 7 blocks from Eastern Market metro station with access to Blue, Orange and Silver lines.

Grab & go, Casual and Fine Dining options abound on Barack's Row (8th street Southeast near the Marine Corps Baracks), Eastern Market Area (7th Street Southeast) and along Pennsylvania Avenue. Whether it be ethnic cuisine, family-friendly, pizza, tapas or All-American burgers and fries, the Capitol Hill area is sure to please.

One block from Bus lines 96 & 97 which run to the Capitol and Union Station.

Temporary parking passes are available upon request and with advance notice.

Easy transfer from DCA Reagan National Airport on Blue line metro or from IAD Dulles airport on Silver line metro. MARC train and Amtrak connect BWI Baltimore airport to Union Station.

Absolutely perfect place for both long or short stays. The owners were extremely nice and were very accommodating. One of the best places I've ever stay.

Great apt. on Capitol Hill in D.C.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this apt. on Capitol Hill in D.C. It was our home away from home for a week while we toured the city. It was convenient to the Metro and very clean and attractively furnished. The linens and towels were luxurious. Holly was a great host providing coffee, teas, beverages and breakfast foods and very helpful in answering questions and checking to see that we had everything we need. I highly recommend this place. And free parking is available!

Capitol Hill Apt

  • 5 of 5

We heartily endorse this sweet apartment as "home base" while exploring DC. We are a family of 4 (2 teenage sons) and felt it met our needs quite well for sleeping, eating and playing (great qn bed and appreciated the availability of DVDs, etc.). We found it very convenient to groceries, bakeries, the Metro and several good restaurants. We also appreciated the many touches of hospitality that added to our experience- welcome basket of coffee/teas/oatmeal, OJ/water/adult beverages in the frig! Thank you! Last but truly not least is the attention Heidi gave us early in the process when questions were asked (Bike and Roll is the best place in town to get your bike AND helmet!) as well as checking in with us once there and then again when they were gone on their own vacation..We even had neighbors checking in with us on their behalf! Thanks again and best wishes!
