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.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 1998

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.

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.

Ken has done everything to help his tenants feel welcome in his carriage house - the place is well equipped and very comfortable. The neighborhood is very safe and many sights are within easy walking distance: Eastern Market and neighboring restaurants (Jimmy T's, Montmartre, Lavagna were our faves); the Capitol, the Library of Congress, many of the Smithsonian museums and Union Station. Two metro lines within 10-minute walk (Union Stn and Eastern Mkt). Ken was responsive to inquiries, helpful with DC tips, and keeps the place in 5-star condition. Would definitely stay here again.

Very comfortable and welcoming home away from home. We were less than a 10-minute walk from the Capitol. Easy access to the Metro. The bed was comfortable and having a washer/dryer made packing a lot lighter and easier. We highly recommend this owner!

We loved staying in the Carriage House. It was perfect for two people new to Washington DC. We could walk to Union Station, the capital, or the Mall if we wanted to, but were also close to the Eastern Market Metro. We were very comfortable on the few days we did not go out because of weather conditions. Everything we needed was within walking distance. We would stay there again and highly recommend it.

My husband and 2 daughters (21 and 24) stayed for 8 days in January. The Carriage house is a perfect location. When we would go outside and cross street we would see Capitol about 4 blocks away. It was amazing each time. Its close to Eastern market and Barracks row where there are so many cafes and restaurants, We ended up not cooking in at all but the kitchen had everything if you want to do that. The metro is also close and easy to navigate so no car was needed. We flew into Reagan and took a cab which was 18 dollars. A person could easily take the metro for less if had a small amount of luggage.
All correspondence with Ken the owner was prompt and informative. My security deposit was returned right after we returned home. On night of arrival he had a nice bottle of wine waiting and recommended Tunnicliffs for dinner. After a log day of travel was a nice ending.
The only possible negative for someone might be stairs and pull-out bed if someone has problems and needs( or wants)a good mattress for sleep.
I highly recommend this property and will stay again when in DC.

We arrived late in the rain on a Friday night to find a bottle of wine, two glasses and a very comfortable bed - as well as fully-furnished kitchen, living area and 1 1/2 baths.

The location was perfectly situated 4 1/2 blocks from the Eastern Market & Metro stop as well as 1 1/2 blocks from the nearby Capitol Market. Breakfast at nearby Jimmy T's was Pumpkin Waffles and wonderful coffee. Easy walking to Capitol, Supreme Court, Library of Congress Jefferson building (DO NOT MISS THIS ONE!) - yet this wonderfully quiet, safe neighborhood was a welcome haven at the end of each day's adventures.

Thanks again, Ken - wouldn't stay anywhere else, if you're available! Come to Birmingham sometime & visit Southern Hospitality down our way!
