WALK TO METRO, THE CAPITOL THE NATIONAL MALL, MUSEUMS + PARKING

Capitol Hill Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Townhome, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

If you need more than 3 bedrooms you can also rent the lower unit which is a full one bedroom apartment accommodating 4 guests.

Located in the historic Capitol Hill neighborhood, this unit features three bedrooms and one bathroom as well as a powder room and can comfortably accommodate a family of eight. The property—situated within walking distance of the U.S. Capitol and the National Mall—is near the center of the Federal City and offers amenities for a comfortable and memorable stay in one of Washington's oldest and most sought-after neighborhoods. Potomac Metro Station is located around the corner from the property.

After Georgetown to the west, Capitol Hill is Washington's oldest neighborhood. In its earliest days, most of the residents were members of Congress who lived in boarding houses and dormitories surrounding the Capitol. As the neighborhood evolved, row houses replaced boarding houses and the Hill began to grow as a neighborhood filled with families, as well as Washington's who's who. As you walk around this stately neighborhood, don't be surprised if you see faces you've seen in the news. A number of senators and representatives make their home on the Hill.

In addition to the U.S. Capitol, the Hill includes other significant American landmarks such as the U.S. Supreme Court, the Library of Congress, the Folger Shakespeare Library, Union Station, the U.S. Marine Corps Barracks, the Washington Naval Yard, Congressional Cemetery, Lincoln Park, and the Eastern Market. All of these sights are within easy walking distance and most are Metro-accessible. Just down the hill from the Capitol is the National Mall with all of the monuments and memorials iconic to Washington, as well as more than 10 museums and galleries of art and artifacts.

To the east of the Capitol is the Eastern Market—one of the only remaining merchant markets left in Washington. While the market bustles during the week, it is on the weekends that it acquires its character and charm as residents from all over the city and visitors from all over the world come to the market to enjoy breakfast; purchase fresh meats, produce, and breads; stroll through the adjacent flea market; and browse the latest art and jewelry crafted by local artists and artisans.

During the spring and summer months, a visit to the U.S. Marine Corps Barracks at 8th and I Streets SE will allow you to see the Marine Corps Silent Drill Team in action. This 24-man rifle platoon performs precision maneuvers with their 10.5 lb M-1 Garand rifles with fixed bayonets.

Over at the U.S. Capitol, the newly opened visitor's center allows visitors to experience the Capitol from the ground up. The center features several state statues in Emancipation Hall and a museum that chronicles the history of the U.S. Capitol from its cornerstone laying in 1789 by George Washington to the present day. Tickets for the Senate and House galleries are available here.

The Library of Congress' Jefferson Building, just across the street from the Capitol, is the world's largest repository of books and media in the world. The building is open to the public and the Renaissance and classical art are breathtaking.

These and other sites make staying on Capitol Hill a must if you're visiting Washington on business or for pleasure.

The redhead next to me is my wife Ana.

We have 2 daughters who are grown and are on their own ( not really, if you are a parent you know) and a 14 pound Schnoodle ( he thinks he is a giant). We have been living in the DC metro area for about 36 years and absolutely love it. Washington DC is a beautiful city, it really is and for people coming here to spend their vacations or attend conferences, weddings, funerals (The Arlington Cemetery), graduations, sight seeing, festivals etc. etc. there isn't any city that offers so much.

I manage the properties and Ana tells me what to do (!!!) We are a great team and enjoy doing what we do.

Great Stay (Despite Crummy Weather) - Capitol Hill

Very nice two level house - everything was as described in the listing. Everything was clean.
Location great - two blocks to Potomac Metro stop, less than two blocks to a Harris Teeter grocery store, and a fairly short walk to a "restaurant row" on 8th Street SE.

We were a family group of 5 adults and two children (9 and 10) and had a great stay. We would definitely stay here again and would strongly recommend to friends.

Spring Break... March 2014

We just got home from a great weeks vacation at this property! I would recommend this property to others but I would like to make a few helpful comments. The property was very clean but a bit smaller and older than expected! We are a family of 5, and for us, staying here was a much better option than renting a hotel room. For us a big draw was the ability to cook some of our own meals, which we did! But having only one frying pan... Made it a bit if a challenge. Also, would have loved it if some more detailed info was available at the property. Perhaps a map of where the grocery store was as we walked twice as far to the Safeway instead if going to the new store right around the corner. Also possibly a list of good places to eat or order food nearby. And posdibly the numbers of relibale car services. We were a bit disappointed at the lack of privacy both in and out of the house.( The window above the mstr door was broken). The house has only one heating system and we had a hard time getting the temperature just right both upstairs and down, but there were small heaters in the closet which helped emensly! But, having only 1 tv was a bit of a bummer. Allan, the ower, was awesome. And each time we called he was very helpful, even letting us store our bags both before and after our reservation. We did have a big snowstorm which shut down the city and it would have been very helpful if a shovel was available at the property. The apartment complex across the street is a bit undesirable but it turned out not to be an issue at all. We realize that every big city has such areas. My kids were afraid to be outside alone but my husband and I felt very comfortable. And, for the price... It was a good value. We enjoyed our trip and can't wait to return!
Recommended for:  Families with Young Children
Owner's Response: Nancy and her family were great. There were challenges with the heating and that was caused by not having the central heating system's fan in ON position but running the ceiling fans all the time. We switched and everything worked. On our welcome letter we give addresses of the local grocery stores and the pharmacies with phone numbers. The snow shovels were in the back of the house. Sometimes a bit of communications goes a long way and we are here to answer any questions you may have. We can't wait to have Nancy and her family back next year or for the summer. "The A/C works great and with ceiling fans in ON position, the temperature will be very pleasant".

Capitol Hill rental property was extremely spacious, handling our party of 8 with ease. The property was well positioned in a very clean and safe neighbourhood, a stone's throw from restaurants, grocery stores, etc. The subway was a short walk away which provided us with great access to the historical sites of DC. We would highly recommend this property for anyone (families, singles, elderly, etc.) and would definitely look to repeat our stay at our next visit to DC.

First let me say that Allen was so nice and always available to us before our arrival and after! The home was very clean and sooo roomy! The kitchen had everything we needed and we usually cooked our own meals at dinner time.The air conditioning was excellent as my grandson has asthma and must have a cool environment. The large dining room was just great for our meals and we left many of our items there instead of carrying them upstairs..the table was invaluable to us and we so enjoyed having our meals altogether. It was so nice to have the kitchen table also as we used it to store our groceries mostly.We loved sitting on the patio and found the area to be quiet and pleasant!We were able to park our van and car in the back which was such a plus!There were plenty of paper towels and such for our use.The kids loved the fact that there was a cute squirrel in the tree out front and a baby raccoon entertained us one morning! The absolute best thing was the location! Just right around the corner is the grocery and the metro is also. We only had to turn the corner and walk a bit and cross one street to the metro. We only used a vehicle once when we visited Mt Vernon. There is a public housing building right across the street but it is very nice and people coming in and out during the day were very nice to us. The beds slept very well and the girls were thrilled to have their own room! Plenty of closet space also! The only suggestion I would have would be to have full length mirrors in each bedroom...with 4 females the bathrooms were a tad crowded as we dressed to go out:)))) The bathrooms do not lock,of course one would have to have a key so we could see why that was the case. It would be nice to have just a chain lock so something but I just made signs and taped them to the door that said "Occupied" and "Empty"..the kids got a kick out of that anyway!:))) Overall we just had the best time and how nice it was late in the day after walking all over the National Mall and museums, to come back and have the nice spa jets in the master bath. We were lining up to relax there and it sure helped aching feet and backs..not to mention the kids loved it!! This was our Christmas present to our 3 eldest grand children and overall one of the best vacations we ever had!! The home is easy to find..as I had printed instructions before we left...it wasn't difficult to find it! We want to thank Allen again for all of his kindnesses and availability!! We will indeed be back one day!
Owner's Response: Thank you so much. We love this review and thank you for the very useful hints. Since your review we converted the half bath into a full bath with a nice size shower, a brand new vanity and mirror, Beautiful tile works with marble floors. It just looks modern and luxurious. Thanks to Ana's relentless quest for elegance (hours and hours in the Home Depot, Lowes and Ikea, before long they should assign me my own private parking spots in these stores!!!). We also added the required locks to address privacy concerns.

We enjoyed our stay at this house although from the pictures it did seem a little more spacious than it actually was. The beds were comfy and the property clean.
