Overview

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.

Excellent Location

  • 4 of 5

Excellent location. If you have a group that doesn't mind walking, this is the place to stay. I would walk to the mall in the morning and meet up with others who wanted to take the Metro - only 4 blocks away. The unit was very cozy and we very much enjoyed our stay. Ken was a wonderful host.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I spent about a week at the Carriage House. It was a perfect location for seeing all the sights on the Mall and close to a subway stop when we wanted to venture further. The Carriage House was very clean and well appointed. The kitchen had everything we needed. Comfy bed, plenty of pillows, quiet and on a nice tree-lined street. We were very comfortable during our stay. The stairs weren't a problems for us (in our early 60's) but could be for those older or with mobility issues.

Winter 2015

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 3 nights. It was all we could have hoped for. The rooms were comfortable and clean the set up of the Carraige House accommodated myself and wife and our 2 teenage children. It's located a short walk from Union Station, so the location is excellent. We were fortunate to meet with Ken the owner and found him to be very generous with his welcome and advice for us who had never been to this great city before. We'll be back when we have more time.

Great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

Located near Eastern Market and just four blocks to Metro Station, the Carriage House is easy-living! After a day of touring you can go "home" and comfortably relax. Three blocks away are very nice pubs, restaurants and coffee shops. Ken takes excellent care of the house and is ready to help on a moment's notice. We've stayed three times and will return again.
