Capitol Hill House Rental Photos and Description

Large Home, 4 Bedrooms + twin sleeper, 3.5 Baths, close to metro (Sleeps 8-10)

Large, two story, historic row house. This is the perfect place for your family and friends to come home to after a long day of touring DC. Spacious 2500 sf of indoor living space with private enclosed courtyard patio and large swimming pool and unusually large garden and patio where everyone can spread out. Four (4) large bedrooms - each with a queen bed. Additional futon and crib available. Expansive double living room with two fireplaces opens onto a separate dining room with table for 10. Hardwood floors throughout the home. Eclectic furnishings - modern and antique - with interesting decorative pieces the owner has collected from around the world. Large kitchen complete with everything you need to cook for a large group. Plenty of counterspace and room for several cooks in this kitchen! Laundry. Parking permits available. Very safe neighborhood with many congressmen and senators living on the block.

The four bedrooms and three bathrooms are on the second floor. A half bath is on the first floor. Hairdryers, towels, sheets, soaps, shampoo, conditioner, and paper products are all provided. Televisions in each bedroom.

Large outdoor entertaining space with grill and seating for 12+. Unusually large pool for a home in the heart of DC. Floats and towels on site. Pool is surrounded by lush gardens full of flowers and plantings.

535 4th St SE is a ten minute walk to three metro stations. Eastern Market and Capitol South are on the orange and blue line and Navy Yard is on the green line. Ten minute walk to the Nationals' baseball stadium. Five minute walk to at least 40 restaurants on the very trendy 8th Street. Ten minute walk to the Capitol building. Visitors may walk to the Smithsonian museums from this location - about 20 minute to Air and Space museum.

Extremely safe area in the midst of the neighborhood that is home to many congressmen and government leaders. Great place to walk around and look at historic homes with their quaint gardens.

Two wonderful children's parks are within one block. Public tennis courts are one block away. Waterfront park is closeby with free evening entertainment during the summer months. A state-of-the-art gym is on the next block and temporary access can be arranged.

About Diane Powell

Owners have lived in Washington DC for over twenty years and work at NASA. They live next door to the property so are available to assist you in anyway necessary.

Diane Powell purchased this house in 2006

Why Diane Powell chose Capitol Hill

Big, well maintained, convenient, safe neighborhood, walk to many sites. Owners will take great care of you during your stay!

What makes this house unique

Capitol Hill is an absolutely wonderful place to live. We love the history of the homes nearby and learning what famous people have lived in them, walking by the Library of Congress, Supreme Court, and the Capitol at night, walking to nearby first rate restaurants, and watching the Marine Corps Band and Honor Guard's Tattoo on Friday nights, Recently the city has opened a beautiful new park just down the street on the waterfront. There's a great sidewalk level fountain for the kids to play in, free outdoor/lawn movies and music on summer evenings. The entire Capitol Hill area has undergone an incredible revitalization within the past ten years and many young families with small children fill the many parks. Most of my guests really enjoy Eastern Market - because on weekends you can find great fresh foods, antiques, international craft items, art and lots of jewelry. It is superbusy - very fun place to spend time with friends.

Made Capital Hill Feel Like Home

  • 5 of 5
Wow, how lucky were we to find this gem. We went to DC for a friends wedding at the Eastern market. We were looking for a house to share with our 6 friends and our 5 month old baby. I came across this house and I'm so glad that we did. It was more than enough space for 8 people + a baby. We could walk to everything, from restaurants to sightseeing to the wedding! The neighborhood is safe & beautiful, we felt right at home. We also made use of the pool and the grill in the backyard. The owners could not have been nicer & more accommodating. I would recommend this place to anyone!

Very nice home in an excellent location

  • 4 of 5
This is the second time we've stayed at the Capital Hill area in DC and we always find it very convenient for our traveling. Ideally located close to two metro stations, abundant eateries and markets, and nicely developed Navy Yards. The home itself is spacious and comfortable. 4 bedrooms upstairs and a big living area downstairs. The kitchen is fully furnished with almost everything you'll need to prep meals.

As the temp was over the 90s during our stay, we found the best aspect of the house was the pool. Nothing like coming back after all day walking and visiting sites and the jumping into the pool for a swim.

The owner's daughter lives nearby and is very responsive to requests. She is also a great wealth of knowledge for local places to go.

Perfect for a large family with kids!

  • 5 of 5
I can't recommend this place enough. We dealt with Lauren Diane's daughter and she was incredibly helpful and accommodating. She even brought a few things from the grocery store for us on the first day as we did not have a car and you do need one to get to a real supermarket. The pool is great. The upstairs bedrooms were perfect for the eight of us. The other reviews are true as well. The downstairs stays very cool on hot days and the upstairs not as much but it is very charming old house in a great neighborhood so that is what you get. We loved it. I am just sorry I ran out of time to see their other adjacent property. Given the owners' attentiveness and care with us I am sure the other property is very nice as well. I highly recommend staying here. Also Lavagna on 8th had good seafood dishes that I would recommend also.

Large Family Group for Wedding

  • 5 of 5
Our large family and friends rented the two properties for a Memorial Weekend Wedding stay. This property and the one owned by the same family one street over were very unique and served our large group perfectly. The host, Lauren, was incredibly accommodating and checked on our needs numerous times while simultaneously toting her lovely baby in a carrier. The gardens, mosaic art, and furniture were lovely. I liked one specimen redbud tree so much I got one for my yard. Family of all ages got situated perfectly. The other house had very whimsical furnishings loved by all. Will definitely stay next time we have a large group.

Owner's Response: Thanks Arlene! I know you were super worried about this event and we tried to take as much of the work off you as possible. It was a perfect weekend and your family was wonderful. We are so glad that we could be a part of your special weekend!

Awesome! Exactly What Looking For....

  • 5 of 5
I stayed with my sisters, cousin, and mother and everyone said what a lovely and perfect house. We ranged in age from 44 to 80. Everything that we could wish for and more was provided.

There are 18 to 20 steps to the second floor. All of the bedrooms are on the second floor. The beds were quite comfortable and I didn't hear one complaint. The stairways are plenty wide enough for one person at a time to climb them. Two could pass, but it would be tight. The steps were not a challenge for any of us.

Diane and her daughter were pleasantly attentive and available to all of my phone calls and I think there was only two of those - mostly for information.

Parking was not a problem for our two cars as once we had parked, we didn't have a need to move them. Once we got oriented, things that we wanted to see and do were located within a comfortable walk either to the attraction or to the train. Everyone said they sure would love to stay here again. And I got lots of praise for finding this rental which I have passed onto Diane.

The house does have WI-fi.

As our stay was 3/20 to 3/23/2014, the pool was not open, however, we did have drinks and snacks at the table next to the pool and soaked up the high 68 degree and sunny weather. The owners had tucked charming knickknacks in the vegetation around the pool which we delighted in. Most of the group was from snowier country and really appreciated the warm weather break.

Two of us arrived from Reagan National Airport lugging a suitcase each and took the train on the blue line all the way to the Eastern Market and walked from the stop to the house. If you are intending to replicate what we did - make sure your smart phone is set for walking directions, not driving, and you will cut many steps off of the trek. Even following driving directions it was within our abilities. I would not recommend this mode of travel with young children.

Why pay more, for a mediocre hotel room?

  • 5 of 5
We needed two hotel rooms for us and our teenagers which would have cost more than this charming, well equipped, spacious house, even in an average hotel. It's close to all transportation (car/bus/subway), decent shopping & restaurants, the Mall, etc. in a nice, safe neighborhood. (Too cold when we stayed, but the pool would be nice to use in summer.) Listing is accurate but photos don't do it justice; minor quibble: TVs are small & old. Helpful, non-intrusive owner. I would stay here again and highly recommend it.
