Overview

Capitol Hill House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom with bath for each bedroom.

The Flat at Library Court is a rowhouse in the historic district with a completely renovated interior and all new furnishings decorated with Washington D.C. flair. You’ll enjoy expansive views of the stately Library of Congress,.. which is directly across the street. The house backs to Library Court, a 300 year old historic cobblestone street built in the days of horse-drawn buggies.

Why you can’t beat our location: Capitol Hill is a historic residential neighborhood that stretches from the U.S. Capitol, and Pennsylvania Ave, the main corridor, emanates from the Capitol beginning at 2nd Street. We are one block away on 3rd St – the first residential block from the Capitol. The further you get (4th Street, 5th, 6th and so on), the less desirable and less safe the areas become, and the longer your walk to the sites. This is truly as good and as close as it gets! Don’t talk yourself into staying blocks away…

• 1 Block or Less: U.S. Supreme Court, Library of Congress (across the street), Folger (Shakespeare) Theatre

• Within 2 to 3 blocks: U.S. Capitol, U.S. Capitol Visitor Center, Cannon House Office Building, Capitol Mall, U.S. Botanical Garden, South Capital Metro station.

• Tour Bus: The Circulator Tour Bus picks up one block away but most of what you’ll want to see is within a short walk.

• Dining 1 Block or Less: We the Pizza; Good Stuff Eatery (President Obama’s favorite hamburger), Cosi (sandwiches, soups and salads), Starbucks, Sonoma Restaurant and Wine Bar, Hunan Dynasty, Hawk N Dove; Capitol Hill Liquor and Deli

• Stores 1-2 Blocks: Corner Market Grocery Store, Grubb’s Care Pharmacy, Gandel’s Liquor, Riverby Books.

The Courtyard Apartment

The Courtyard Apartment of the Flat at Library Court is a two story unit with 3 bedrooms and 3 ½ bathrooms, a private courtyard and expansive views of the stately Library of Congress. The kitchen is fully stocked and the unit has wi-fi, cable TV and central air conditioning/heat.

• Main Level: On the main level, you’ll find an expansive kitchen/great room with views of the Library of Congress. The kitchen is fully equipped and has a breakfast bar and large dining table and it opens to the living room with a sleeper sofa and flat screen TV. Behind the great room is a half bathroom, washer and drier, and a master suite with a king size bed and full bathroom, including a tub. The hallway provides access to the private courtyard for relaxation after a busy day of touring the Capitol and quiet al fresco dining; it backs to the historic cobblestone court.

• Lower Level: On the lower level, there are two bedrooms and two full bathrooms: one bedroom has a queen size bed and its own bathroom and the third bedroom has bunk beds single/over double.

DESCRIPTION OF NEIGHBORHOOD:

Capitol Hill is the largest historic residential neighborhood in Washington D.C., stretching easterly in front of the United States Capitol along wide avenues. It is one of the oldest residential communities in Washington D.C.

As a geographic feature, Capitol Hill rises near the center of the District of Columbia and extends eastward. The Capitol Hill neighborhood today straddles two quadrants of the city, Southeast and Northeast, and a large portion is now designated as the Capitol Hill historic district. The name Capitol Hill is often used to refer to both the historic district and to the larger neighborhood around it.

Capitol Hill's landmarks include not only the United States Capitol, but also the Senate and House office buildings, the Supreme Court building, the Library of Congress, the Marine Barracks, the Washington Navy Yard, and Congressional Cemetery.

The main non-residential corridor of Capitol Hill is Pennsylvania Avenue, a lively commercial street with shops, restaurants and bars. Eastern Market is an 1873 public market on 7th Street SE, where vendors sell fresh meat and produce in indoor stalls and at outdoor farmers' stands. It is also the site of an outdoor flea market every weekend. Please look at our other properties 3550803 and 913567 with homeaway.com in Capitol Hill area.

We do not provide parking. If you are driving to DC please ask for our DC parking information.

A perfect gem!

  • 5 of 5

This property was beyond perfect! Our group consisted of four high school classmates ( who are seniors now), it was spacious, clean and within walking distance to many sights. We took the metro and cities buses during our stay, convenient stops. This home was a gem! Added so much to our trip!!!

Perfect Rental for our group!

  • 5 of 5

I selected this rental based on reviews and location. We were not disappointed. This property was completely remodeled recently so everything is new and nice. It is also very clean and well-stocked with basic necessities. Bob, the manager, was great. Very responsive and a pleasure to work with. And the location is just unbeatable. We had a fabulous stay and I would gladly stay there again.

Great location, beautiful flat!

  • 5 of 5

Flat 1 was a great home-base for our DC trip. The neighborhood is very safe and is loaded with lots of great restaurants, too. The location could not be better--just a couple blocks away from the Capitol, metro stop, Supreme Court, etc.

The flat itself is very comfortable and exceptionally clean. There were six of us staying and we had plenty of room. Highly recommended!

A Very Positive Experience

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place... It was centrally located to everything we wanted to do, a close walk to the metro station, local shopping and restaurants. Being right behind the Library of Congress and Capital was extra special and so close to experience all the museums and monuments. The place was nicely remodeled and very comfortable for our family of six, which included our four adult children (early 20's). Bob, the property manager was absolutely wonderful to work with, he gave us so much information prior to our arrival as well as checked in with us on our day of arrival to make sure everything was in order. When we had one issue with the plumbing Bob responded very promptly and had it fixed with no inconvenience. If we were to go again I wouldn't even look for other options and would rebook without hesitation

It doesn't get better than this

  • 5 of 5

This is the most convenient location to the U.S. Capitol. It's close to the South Capitol Metro line and a short walk to fun cafes. On top of all that the home itself is top notch. Completely up to date, comfortable beds, TVs w cable in all bedrooms, kitchen and family room, full size washer and dryer and in an extremely safe neighborhood. The owner called the day we arrived to make sure we were able to locate the home and to let us know he was available if we needed him. We were thrilled to find this place and would highly recommend it to anyone traveling to DC

Wonderful home in a superb location

  • 5 of 5

Four moms and their 13 year old sons stayed here for 5 days in July 2014. This was perfect! The house is large and has 2 levels, allowing us to spread out after a long day of sightseeing. We were surprised at how large it is. The kitchen was very well appointed and fully updated. We appreciated the Keurig and coffee pods supplied by the owners. There was plenty of room for several of us to be in the kitchen working at one time and the large dining table allowed us to sit together for a meal. Plus, the 4 bathrooms (3 full, 1 half) made for no hassles over showers--making our mornings quick & painless! With 8 people showering within an hour or two of each other, I worried about having enough hot water or water pressure. No problem! We had both.

The location of the property was perfect! We walked nearly everywhere and when it was too far we took the Metro (South Capitol) which was just a few blocks away. Cabs were easy to catch just a block away. And, the bike rentals, also a block away, made getting to the monuments easy. About 1-2 blocks away there were some really good restaurants. We the Pizza was an interesting & tasty approach to pizza. Pret a Manger opened while we were visiting and made for an easy picnic one day. Plus, there were two coffee shops nearby.

Also worth mentioning is that the apartment was spotless! It was very clean with nice towels and linens. If I am back in DC again, I will definitely book this property again. I just don't know what another property could offer that this one didn't have.
