CAPITOL HILL: AS CLOSE AS YOU CAN GET TO U.S. CAPITOL.

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 two twin beds and full bath.

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

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.

Beyond Excellent

  • 5 of 5
We loved the location! It's in a safe neighborhood that was close to the Metro and within walking distance several DC sites including the Capital and Supreme Court. We also enjoyed walking to Good Stuff Eatery for awesome burgers and shakes. There's a Safeway app 1.5 miles away if you'd like to grab some groceries and eat a few meals in. Basically this is a great place to set up a home base and explore all the DC sites.

The accommodations were very nice! We enjoyed packing a little lighter and doing a few loads of laundry (also nice if you like to run the Mall and don't want to pack sweaty cloths). The number of bedrooms and baths worked out well for our family.

Last but not least, Bob was very nice to work with during the whole rental process. If we plan another DC family vacation in the future, we'll definitely check availability for this rental.

Incredible location! Fabulous for families!!

  • 5 of 5
This property was perfect for our family visit to Washington D.C.! My husband and I travelled with our two children, grandparents, niece and nephew. We all were very comfortable - the unit is thoughtfully stocked with linens, lots of bottled water, a Keurig coffee maker with all the supplies, washer/dryer (detergent and dryer sheets), the kitchen is nicely stocked and arranged in an open plan to a table seating up to 10 comfortably, and the proximity to the restaurants in the neighborhood of Capitol Hill as well as being within walking distance to all the central sights made this property absolutely ideal! The management was proactive in contacting us and coordinating our trip to be sure all went smoothly. We are most grateful to Bob!
We hope we can return to stay here again!

Perfect place to stay when visiting D.C.!

  • 5 of 5
Some friends recommended this flat to us, and we couldn't have been more pleased. The location is perfect for seeing the sites around DC - about 1/2 mile from the Capitol and close to two different Metro stations. The access to restaurants and the National Mall was great. Our family of four (two adults, two teenagers) stayed for a 6 nights/7 days and made full use of having a full kitchen. It allowed us to eat breakfast before heading out to sightsee, and we even were able to come back for lunch some days because of its proximity.

The house and its décor/accommodations were great - tasteful, clean, fresh and comfortable. The property manager was helpful before and during our visit, providing details about the property as well as tourist information.

I highly recommend this property and will refer my friends who plan to visit DC!

All around excellent experience

  • 5 of 5
Wanted to be close to the National Mall for a recent spring break trip with my wife and two kids and this place was perfect. The owners were fantastic with communication throughout the process, the location was ideal and the place had plenty of room so we could all enjoy some private time after very busy days.
The kids loved that they got the own room and bathroom. The home was very well appointed with plenty of everything we needed. The Keurig in the kitchen and bottled water in the fridge were especially nice treats for a family on the go a lot. The kitchen had everything we needed to make some meals at home and avoid eating out all the time.
We also enjoyed the neighborhood. We really liked 'We, the Pizza' and 'Good Stuff Eatery. When we wanted to run over the Georgetown for the day, the Capitol South metro stop was a quick walk away.
Highly recommend this home for anyone wishing to be close to the Capitol and enjoy DC.
