Overview

Downtown - Washington DC Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Comfortable, Renovated Apartment for up to 6. 2 Bathrooms, WiFi, Cable TV

The Eastern Market apartment enjoys a terrific address at 6th and A Street SE, Capitol Hill. Accommodations include a Queen sized bed, Double sized sleeper sofa and 2 Twin beds. There are 2 bathrooms, a modern kitchen, laundry facilities, wireless internet, and TV with cable. This apartment can be divided into a smaller studio, so the layout is unique. Entry using the private entrance from the front of the building, brings you into a large room with living and dining area in the front. The compact, modern kitchen is off the living area. A sleeping area with Queen bed is at the back of this first room separated from the living/dining area by a screen. The first bathroom is opposite the sleeping area. A doorway off the sleeping area, opens to a small hallway with the second bathroom, then the back bedroom with 2 twin beds, arranged head to head along one wall. There is a small outdoor patio off this bedroom.

We are a 4 block walk to the Eastern Market Metro station, accessing the Blue/Orange/Silver lines. What you can't walk to from the front door is easily accessible using the Metro. Our neighborhood offers numerous restaurants, shopping, banking, and services. Grocery options include Eastern Market, Washington's oldest operating fresh food market, Harris Teeter, Safeway and several neighborhood markets.

For guests arriving to DC with a car, we can provide a visitor parking permit, valid for street parking in our immediate neighborhood. Don't worry if you don't have a car, they are not necessary here in the city. Beyond the Metro, there are several bus lines nearby, as well as Capital Bikeshare, Zipcar and Car2go services.

Wonderful apartment in Capitol Hill

  • 5 of 5

My husband and two small children stayed here during renovations of our house. The apartment was everything we were looking for - it was quiet, convenient, and very comfortable. Carla and Gordon had thought of everything you would need for a long or short stay, including a fully stocked kitchen (pots, pans, utensils, cups/glasses/plates, spices/sugar, coffee maker and filters, mini fridge, toaster, even tupperware!), laundry essentials, plenty of towels, blankets, and pillows, WiFi, TV, etc. We loved that we were one block from Eastern Market and the street was quiet at night and beautiful to walk down. Carla and Gordon were very welcoming and made our time incredibly easy. Thank you for a terrific stay!

Great apartment with lots of room!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with our 3 children stayed in the apartment while visiting Washington DC. The apartment was clean and well stocked. The owner was very nice and told us about restaurants and a grocery store very close to the apartment. We had no trouble with parking. There was a washer/dryer in the apartment and they even provided laundry soap. I really enjoyed staying in the apartment, it provided a family of 5 with so much more room than a hotel. I would definitely stay here again!

Ideal location

  • 5 of 5

What a gem. The apartment was ideal for our needs. It is decorated in an African theme & we became quite attached to the garden giraffe =). The kids enjoyed having their own space in the back bedroom and the unit is much longer than it appears. Having a kitchen, W/D, TV/DVD player, all made our stay that much better. I appreciated the electric kettle as I drink a lot of tea. We did not really interact with the owners except at check in, but that was b/c everything was set up so well. Quiet, beautiful neighborhood. Able to get fresh veggies at Farmer's Market down the street on weekend. CVS close by the Metro stop for odds and ends. Really, this place is great & when we come back to DC, we will stay here again. Thank you Gordon & Carla, & everyone at B&B DC, for making our vacation stay so easy!

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at this unit for 4 nights in July 2013 – a family of 6, and cannot recommend the unit enough.

Carla was so very friendly and accommodating, with lots of tips and advice on where and what to do.

Carla was kind enough to allow access to the apt early on the day of arrival, due to our flight times, which was such a bonus after a long trans Atlantic flight.

The unit was spotless and beautifully furnished, including a small patio for our use at the back. It is positioned ideally- within walking distance to the Capitol, subway line or buses, in a beautiful residential area. Cable and WiFi all worked very well, 2 bathrooms very useful for our large group as well as washing machine + drier. Only very small minus for us was the dining table that seated only 4- but not a biggie.

Really a wonderful unit and host. Highly recommended.

Snowy Week Visit

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in the apartment for a wonderful week. We arrived on Tuesday Jan 22 and the snow came that night. For 4 days the temp never got above 25. All of that sounds like a bad thing especially if you knew we are from San Antonio, Texas and do not experience this kind of weather, however I must say that it was one of the best trips we have ever made to DC.

All of the things we did were made more pleasant by the convenience of the location of the apartment. We were only a couple of blocks from everything we needed, Metro Station, Eastern Market, Restaurants, and a wonderfully quite neighborhood.

The apartment was clean, cozy, well equipped, and altogether lovely. The apartment is in the basement of a house in which the owner, Carla, lives on the upper floor. Carla was so helpful and so responsive to every request we made. She could not have been more pleasant. I feel we made a friend in our short stay. We will come back to stay with Carla when we return to DC.

A Cozy Home Base in DC

  • 5 of 5

This apartment beautifully accommodated two mothers and two 11 year old boys on a Washington, DC adventure. Our friends from New Zealand wanted to see the museums and monuments of DC. This apartment was the perfect base! The moms were thrilled to be SO close the Eastern Market Farmer’s Market, Yes! Organic foods, a drug store, and several corner stores. The tiny kitchen suited our needs perfectly. The quality pots, stove, oven and microwave made it easy to feed eternally hungry boys quickly (without the worry of waiting at restaurants). We appreciated the lovely dishes and enjoyed the electric kettle for endless cups of tea. The African themed decor was cheerful, comfortable, and a great treat after staying in a hotel.

The layout suited our needs perfectly! The boys loved having their own bedroom in the back & had plenty of room to spread out with their games and toys. Their room also had great sound proof doors so that we could put them to bed earlier & stay up chatting without anyone waking up. The moms were thrilled at the comfort of both the Murphy bed and the pull out sofa bed. Having the use of two immaculate bathrooms with fantastic showers (great water pressure, lots of hot water), thick fluffy towels and large bars of soap was a great comfort at the end of a busy day. The apartment was very quiet and we slept so well. The apartment’s front room is also cheery and light filled during the day...in case you want to approach the day slowly.

The boys also loved being in walking distance (about 8 blocks) to the Air & Space Museum. The metro was an easy three block walk when we wanted a ride to the further museums and monuments. Our hostess got us an on street parking pass for the entire time. It was easy to find safe parking close to the apartment on the street (this could be because Congress was in fall recess). We never used the van during our stay in DC because it was so easy to use the metro & walk to our destinations.

We would love to stay here again! I highly recommend staying here instead of a hotel!
