CAPITOL HILL - CLOSE TO EVERYTHING, WALK TO THE MALL

Capitol Hill Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

The location is perfect (in the heart of Capitol Hill's best street) for someone on an extended business trip and/or vacation who prefers a different environment vs. a hotel room, and who will treat our home as your own during the short-term stay. The house is located on a Historic St. which is quiet, safe, and within walking distance (blocks) to the famous Eastern Market, Capitol, Supreme Court, Library of Congress, Senate, etc. Also within walking distance are shops, restaurants, grocery stores, two Metro stops, jazz clubs, coffee houses, dry cleaners, Shakespeare Theatre, and the famous National Mall where you can visit the Smithsonian museums for free which include the National Gallery of Art, Museum of Natural History, Air and Space museum, etc.

For those unfamiliar with the term carriage house, let me explain: At the turn of the century, most large Victorian homes had a separate small house in the back of the main house to store the carriages as well as horses. Today, as homes were modernized and renovated, the small houses were converted into living dwellings with a private alley entrance not unlike many apartments in Paris, London, (European cities). There are approximately five carriage houses located behind the main houses on our street. The cobblestone alley is well lit, very wide, short, and of course, very safe.

Our street is one of the safest streets in DC as well as the widest and most beautiful. The house is air conditioned, has hardwood floors on the second floor where the living room, entertainment room, master bedroom and bathroom as well as washer/dryer are located. Ceramic tile is on the first floor with a well stocked kitchen, separate dining room, and powder room. Other amenities include DVD Player, two TV's, Stereo, Cable, Wi-Fi, hair dryer, clocks, as well as linens and towels, etc.

The security deposit is due at or before check-in which is 2 PM. Check out time is 10 AM. Note: If checking-in or checking-out outside posted times an additional fee may apply. References required as well as an Application Reservation must be signed which includes the aforementioned terms.

About Kenneth Kimbrough

Retired couple, long time residents of the area.

Kenneth Kimbrough purchased this apartment in 1998

Why Kenneth Kimbrough chose Capitol Hill

The property was purchased for the owners use and enjoyment. The Carriage House is the owners pied-à-terre and is being made avaliable for occasional use by renters through HomeAway/VRBO. For those unfamiliar with the term carriage house, let me explain: At the turn of the century, most large Victorian homes had a separate small house in the back of the main house to store the carriages as well as horses. Today, as homes were modernized and renovated, the small houses were converted into living dwellings with a private alley entrance not unlike many apartments in Paris, London, (European cities). There are approximately five carriage houses located behind the main houses on our street. The cobblestone alley is well lit, very wide, short, and of course, very safe.

What makes this apartment unique

A residential neighborhood just 6 Blocks from the Nations Capitol; Tree lined extra wide street with rows of turn-of-the-century 4 story victorian homes.

Great neighbourhood

  • 4 of 5
Pros: We loved the location for proximity to the Eastern Market and great restaurants nearby - never made a bad choice. Also we could walk (although a bit of a hike in the heat) to the DC sites, museums etc. It was a nice, safe, quiet, residential neighbourhood.

The apartment itself was well equipped and pleasant. We had ample room for us and our teenage son, who slept on the pull out. It was nice to have wifi and satellite TV for him - once we figured out the code! Our security deposit was returned very quickly.

Cons: Use of the attached parking garage would have been a bonus, as we had to park a few blocks away, which meant going to get the car and driving into the lane way when we needed to unload or pack up. Entry into the apartment was around the back in the laneway, and although it was safe enough and well lit, it did make us feel a little insecure late at night. Front street entry would be ideal. There was a small area for outdoor use, but not really maintained so not useable. I'd prefer a location that has an outdoor eating/sitting in the morning and evening - again, a front street location would be preferred.

Overall, it was well positioned, clean and had most of the amenities we needed for our 4-day stay in Washington.

Fantasic place to stay!

Stayed here for 2 weeks in August with my husband and 2 daughters. So much fun. Plenty of space, quiet, clean and well stocked with anything we might need. Nice and private, and felt safe. Lots of conveniences and sights nearby. Beautiful neighborhood!

Wonderful Week!

  • 5 of 5
We've just returned from a week in this comfortable carriage house. The location is fantastic! We were able to walk to the Capitol and down on to the Mall each morning and following a late afternoon rest in the comfy living room, we'd walk down to one of the restaurants on 7th or 8th St SE for dinner. Ken has provided restaurant reviews, guide books & pamphlets and helpful hints for getting around the area. The area felt completely safe. There were lots of people out jogging, pushing strollers and wandering around this Capitol Hill area. We only ate breakfast there but the kitchen was very, very well equipped if one wanted to cook meals at home. The bedroom & living room are on the second floor so pour that cold drink before heading upstairs or you'll get extra exercise!

Great location and all the amenities of home.

  • 5 of 5
The carriage house is a great location that is convenient to the Metro and the Eastern Market. The owner was very helpful and provided a lot of information that made the trip go smoothly. The accommodations are top notch and the extras (maps, guides, recommendations, Metro fare cards) were very helpful.

We chose not to have a car and used the Metro and taxis to navigate our way around DC. The location is excellent for using public transportation and even to walk to some nearby restaurants and attractions.

DC Trip

  • 4 of 5
The property is in a great location. Very convenient to the Eastern Market Metro station and an very easy walk to the Capitol Building. The Eastern Market offers basic grocery services with a Yes! Organic Market another 2 blocks away for additional needs. Due to dietary limitations, we ate most of our meals at the apartment, but a variety of local restaurants are located near the Eastern Market, offering easy access to dining options. The property worked well for my family (wife, 2 teenage daughters). However, the girls ended up just sleeping on the couches, rather than the fold out. Alley entrance felt odd at first, but it felt safe the entirety of our stay. There are quite a few (fairly steep) stairs to the living room/bedroom, so seniors may want to take that into consideration. Based on the location, I would definitely consider another stay at this apartment.
