Excellent Homebase for a couple or small family!

Location! Location! Location! What a great homebase for sightseeing in DC! From this cozy apartment we walked daily to the Capitol or Eastern Market neighborhood, or to the Mall. There is also a Capitol Bike share station just down at the end of the block out the front door. There for $7 a day or $15 for 3 days you can check out bicycles and ride them anywhere for 30 minutes for no extra cost. That easily gets you to anywhere on the Mall, the monuments, the white house. Then you deposit the bikes at another station that are located all over the city, and check out another bike when you need one. There is even a handy app to check real time availability of bikes at the various stations.
The apartment was just as advertised! It is cozy and perfect for a couple!
We stayed with 3 kids - 2 who bunked on the pullout sofa bed (no complaints) and our youngest who used a single airbed mattress on the floor. It was tight at night, but it worked for us! I wouldn't recommend for 2 couples though.
Owner, Natalie was very helpful and responsive both during our stay and before. And the apartment is clean and well-maintained! Ready to rent!
I would definitely recommend this apt. to friends travelling to DC. We really enjoyed living in the Capitol Hill neighborhood! There is a great market just across the Park square for specialty items, coffee, beer, wine, etc. There are several small grocery markets just blocks away. Also we enjoyed the Eastern Market neighborhood - coffee shops, restaurants, and of course the Weekend Flea market and Fresh food market! We didn't try the new restaurant next door, but we wish we could've gotten over there - because it looked good for a fancy evening meal, dessert or glass of wine!
