HISTORY MEETS STYLE IN THE HEART OF THE NATION'S CAPITAL

Capitol Hill Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Stylish One Bedroom Apartment Steps From The Capitol

You’ve found the best location in Washington, DC!

Welcome to Capitol Escape, a boutique, one-bedroom English Basement apartment on the most famous street in DC’s historic Capitol Hill neighborhood.

Ideally situated for work or play, Capitol Escape is a few short blocks from the US Capitol, Supreme Court, Library of Congress and House and Senate office buildings. Catch the bus right outside your door or walk three blocks to Eastern Market Metro Station for access to all of the sights and sounds of the Nation’s capital.

Eclectic and hip, but always stylish, the apartment is decorated with unique, vintage pieces and a revolving gallery of works by local artists (many available for purchase).

Capitol Escape includes all of the amenities you would expect at a fine hotel, and then some: full kitchen, coffee maker with gourmet coffee, washer/dryer, 32” HDTV with DVD player and cable, free WiFi, queen bed with 650-thread count linens and down comforter, iPod/iPhone compatible clock radio, and bliss™ bath products.

With more than 30 restaurants, bars and coffee shops a short walk away, you’ll never eat at the same place twice. Or pick up fresh, locally-sourced ingredients for the perfect dinner in from from nearby Eastern Market (which expands on weekends into a fantastic outdoor market featuring antiques, jewelry, art, farm-fresh produce, etc).

The apartment is perfect for 2, but can accommodate up to 4 with an air mattress that we provide. Take the Metro or a short cab ride from Reagan National Airport. If you’re on Amtrak, Union Station is less than one mile away.

We have lived on the Hill for 17 years and worked in and out of government. We are proud parents, occasional foodies, and supporters of local artists. We always dreamed of owning a house on East Capitol Street and -- bonus! -- ours came with a one bedroom apartment.

Barrett Karr purchased this apartment in 2012

We moved to Capitol Hill 17 years ago and never left. The Hill has a unique combination of history, walkability and a genuine neighborhood feel -- all within steps of the US Capitol. When we finally had the opportunity to buy a house on the street that is literally at the heart of the Hill, we jumped. Come see why! We may even let you in on a few of our favorite local haunts...

East Capitol Street is one of DC's most historic avenues; it literally is the north-south dividing line and runs directly into the US Capitol. Houses on East Capitol rarely come on the market; we waited 17 years for this one!

WASHINGTON D.C. IN JUNE

  • 5 of 5
The apartment was as described and fit our needs very well. The location was wonderful due to its distance to Metro and Eastern Market. Apartment was clean and furnished with all one needs to enjoy the day and evening.

We will stay here again if and when we return and have recommended this apt. to all of our friends.

GREAT AND COMFORTABLE PLACE, PERFECT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for 10 days to explore all Washington has to offer. We ran out of time! This apartment is very comfortable and completely set up for your use. The bedroom is quiet (hard to get out of bed!) despite the apartment being on a significant street. There are buses and metro easily available, two small stores nearby and a great local breakfast place. Nice walking through the beautiful neighborhood. Highly recommended. Thanks Barrett!

MOST DELIGHTFUL VRBO

  • 5 of 5
I wanted to visit DC with my 9-year old grandson without renting a car, yet staying close to the Capitol and Mall and still being in a safe area. This VRBO was perfect for us. The owners are a delightful young couple and were very helpful. One of our only regrets is that we didn't discover Jimmy T's Place, just one block away, until our last morning. Otherwise, everything was beyond our expectations and we had a great trip.

EXCELLENT SPOT

  • 5 of 5
This apartment is in a beautiful neighborhood a few blocks from the Capitol. It's proximity to the Metro, Eastern Market and the Mall make this a great place to stay. Plus, there are all kinds of affordable restaurants within walking distance. The apartment is clean, and having a washer and dryer right there was a definite plus. To top it all off, the owners, who live upstairs, are really nice, and we could hardly hear them above us. We would definitely stay there again if we head back to Washington.

FRIENDLY AND RESPECTFUL OWNERS! JUST THE RIGHT SIZE AND COMFORTS FOR A WEEK STAY!

  • 4 of 5
If your looking for a place to come back to after a long day of sight seeing then this is it. The rental is just the right size for two and has everything you will need. If your wanting a place to hang out during the day and be entertained then you need a hotel with a hot tub, pool, and a bar. The area is beautiful and clean. Recommend heading to Union Station if your looking for eating places and nice surroundings. Eastern Market was a major disappointment (worth one visit only). If your a first timer we recommend a night bike tour or the day Duck tour. Both will give you a good ideal on where things are at. Again, this rental is nice and priced right!!!
