** "TOP OF THE LINE" (Guest: Aurelia C.)


** "WAY BETTER THAN ANY HOTEL." (Guest: Matthew T.)

This newly rebuilt town house is in Capitol Hill Historic district. The façade of the house is the same as the house built in 1860 but interior is modern. Located just a little more than one block from the Library of Congress, 3 blocks from the Capitol, and 4 blocks from Supreme Court. A grocery store, a wide variety of restaurants, bars, banks and stores are only one block away from this house. A full-service gas station is one block away. Eastern Market is about two blocks away. This spacious house has 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, two with whirlpool tubs. Also just one block away, guests can find a bus and a bike share station to explore the city.

Eastern Market metro station and Capitol South metro station are about 3 blocks away. However, Uber and taxi are cheaper and easier than metro. For example, metro costs $2 daytime and $ 2.25 rush hour per person. For four people to go to the White House, metro costs $ 8 or $ 9 and you will have to walk 3 or 4 blocks from station to the White House. UberX costs $ 8.45 directly from our house to the White House. To get to Lincoln Memorial, Metro cost $ 8 or $ 9 for four and you will have to walk 11 blocks from Smithsonian station. UberX costs $10.50 direct to Lincoln Memorial according to Uber website.

Nationals baseball park is a little over a mile away. It is very easy to go to National Arlington Cemetery from the house: go straight on the street from the house, make one turn on to Memorial Bridge and you are there.

This bright gorgeous house in Capitol Hill historic district has modern décor inside, three skylights, and a backyard. It has keyless entry door too.

We care about the safety of the guests. The whole house is protected with fire sprinklers. There are smoke alarms and also several carbon monoxide alarms. In addition, there are fire extinguishers in the house. All the box springs and mattresses are protected with CleanRest encasements which keep off allergens, microtoxins, dust mites, and bedbugs.

Only the Second floor master bathroom is specifically for the master bedroom 2. All the other three bathrooms are accessible by people from any bedrooms. We provide soap, shampoo, conditioner, hair dryers, toilet paper and towels.

There is a wet bar upstairs so that people from upstairs bedrooms do not need to go downstairs for drinks or midnight snacks. Temperatures can be controlled separately downstairs and upstairs. There is one thermostat downstairs and also one upstairs. The house has modern forced air heating and air-conditioning.

If you drive, we will obtain a parking permit for you for free if you send us your license number and the state of registration before you arrive. Parking is quite easy in front and around the house. The neighborhood is very safe because it falls inside the jurisdiction of both DC Police and Capitol Police.

Dining table has 8 chairs. Kitchen Granite countertop has 6 chairs. There are two Pack and Plays and a high chair for babies. There are 3 TV's including a 50 inch TV in the living room. The house has Wi-Fi and cable tv.

Every bedroom has its own closet. The bunkbed is adult size. Kitchen has plates, dishes, utensils and other necessary gadgets. Laundry and dishwasher are ready to go.

People who like to be "Green" should rejoice because the roof and the front wall have sprayed insulation and also there is solar power for the house.

If you need 6 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms or a studio basement for 2 or 4 people, please check out Property number 971861 hosted by the same manager.

Great big house located near everything!

  • 5 of 5

We had 5 adults and 7 kids for one week in this awesome house. Everything was just as nice as shown in the photos, and the house was very clean and well stocked. All the attention to detail makes this house a fabulous home-base for an Epic D.C. Vacation with a big huge family!

Accessible to everything. Outstanding owner.

  • 5 of 5

We rented based upon numerous five star reviews and were not disappointed. Great house in a quiet neighborhood two blocks from the Capital. Very responsive landlord whose attention to small details add up to a lot. Relatives from three different families stayed for an extended Memorial Day weekend wedding. All are eager to return to this home.

Fantastic location! Lovely and comfortable home!

  • 5 of 5

Our trip couldn't have been more fun. Our group of 12 walked on several outings, though taxis were easy to find just a block away. The home was perfect for cooking, relaxing, being together ... All without feeling cramped. The beds are very comfortable. The bathrooms are very nice. We would definitely stay here again.
