We're brand new to hosting on this site so we'll be sure to go above and beyond for your stay. Newly renovated and decorated apartment. Bedroom with queen bed plus a Frontgate Air Bed. Can also provide a twin bed. As an Interior Designer and Antique Dealer, some of the artwork and accessories are available for purchase. Fully furnished kitchen. One half block off Hip H Street with restaurants, clubs, Atlas Theatre, art galleries and free trolley to Union Station, Amtrak and Metro. Capitol is 20-minute walk. Free on-street visitor Parking Permit available on request.
Our apartment is located in one of the trendiest parts of Washington, DC – the H Street Corridor (sometimes known as the Atlas District). The unit is a full, private spacious English Garden apartment with separate, on-street entrance. It has one bedroom with a queen-sized bed and a full-sized air bed for a total of up to four guests. For the first couple of mornings, the kitchen is stocked with breakfast ingredients if you’re inclined to prepare something such as eggs, pancake mix, cereal, etc. And we may on occasion slip in sweet rolls, bagels or banana bread. There is a restaurant (Ben's) serving breakfast a half block away and a grocery store at the corner of Third and H if you need additional food.
Features include free wi-fi, cable TV, and Amazon TV that you can log into your Amazon, Netflix or Hulu. The fully equipped kitchen includes pans, dishes, flatware, microwave, toaster oven, Keurig coffee maker, etc. and a washer and dryer.
The entire apartment is for your private use. It has a separate on-street access. You'll have your own 4 digit access code for the front door. If you need a visitor's parking permit, we will obtain one for you. It is only valid for Zone 6 which is all of Capitol Hill.
We live upstairs but will ensure your privacy as you desire. We will of course at a minimum be available by text or phone if you have any questions. We will be happy to provide any suggestions for eating, sight seeing or entertainment options.
DC’s newest transportation mode, the DC Street Car, runs on H Street from Union Station (Amtrak, Metro Red Line, Marc Trains, Sight-Seeing Buses, Bolt Buses, etc.) and the Minnesota Avenue Metro Station Orange Line with easy access to the Blue and Silver Line). The Street Car is currently free to ride. There’s also Uber, Taxis, nearby Zipcars and Capital Bike Share. All the transportation options provide easy access to Eastern Market, Barracks Row on Eighth Street SE, U.S. Capitol, Supreme Court, Library of Congress, the National Mall, Museums, Gallaudet University, etc.
While children are welcomed, the apartment is definitely not child-proofed.
Now for a few caveats. We do live upstairs so you may be aware of our presence but your unit is fully self-contained and private. We do have two small dogs and you may hear them padding around or attacking a ruthless toy or acting like the world is ending when someone rings the doorbell. But since they’re old dogs, they mostly sleep. Also, it’s definitely a city neighborhood. Plenty of nearby construction, early morning garbage trucks, late night pedestrians. No smoking.
