Overview

Capitol Hill House Rental Photos and Description

Large 3 bedrm w/ double living room, renovated kitchen & fantastic front porch!!

Charming and spacious row house with a front porch in one of DC's great neighborhoods. Walking distance to everything! You will instantly feel at home in this 1880 row house just one block from Union Station (Red Line Metro stop) and only 4 to 5 blocks from the Capitol Building, Supreme Court, and Library of Congress. A beautiful tree-lined walk past decorative water fountains is all that separates you from all the museums, monuments and memorials on the National Mall.

You will be amazed with the convenience and elegance of Union Station and its Red Line Metro stop. The Red Line is the main backbone of the DC Metro -- connecting to all of the other lines -- so the entire metro area is just minutes away -- pop over to Gallery Place/China Town, Metro Center, Dupont Circle, the National Zoo, or Foggy Bottom without the hassle of traffic or parking. If you are looking for a taxi, there is always a line of them waiting in front of Union Station. You can also catch many of the tour buses and the famous amphibious duck tours at Union Station as well. If you want to get around by bicycle, there is also a Capital Bike Share (www.capitalbikeshare.com) station at Union Station — great for getting around on the mall — ride them to the White House or the Washington, Lincoln, and Jefferson Monuments.

Just around the corner from the house is the world's best bagel shop (no better sandwiches anywhere) and several other great neighborhood restaurants with outside seating along Massachusetts Avenue. Ask for Milton at La Loma -- the best margaritas around -- relaxing under shade umbrellas is one of the best ways to pass an afternoon or evening. We are also conveniently located to Eastern Market and all the shops and restaurants along Pennsylvania Avenue and 8th Street SE (about 1 mile away). We are even closer (just a few blocks) to one of the hottest growing areas in all of DC: the H Street Corridor with all of its great restaurants, bars, and boutique shopping.

If you want to get your own groceries and cook, there is a brand new Giant grocery store that just opened up 3 blocks away. The kitchen is fully stocked for even the most demanding chef. Entertain in the dining room or enjoy hosting on the back patio area just off the kitchen.

The house is spacious with two living rooms -- one with a fireplace, the other with a floor-to-ceiling bay window looking out on E Street. The kitchen has a cozy breakfast nook and small bar seating area. Or you can choose among several options for sitting outside. There is the huge front porch, perfect for people watching, or relax in the more private back patio area, or choose instead to sit on the second floor back deck. Enough space for everyone to spread out and you can try a different spot to relax every evening. If you want even more space, ask us about our English basement studio space with separate entrance (850 square feet -- sleeps 2-4 -- full eat-in kitchen)(VRBO#577562).

The renovated kitchen has granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, a 15 bottle wine cooler waiting to be filled, and a Keurig coffee maker that has you one button push away from a fresh brewed cup of coffee or tea (compliments of the house).

Upstairs, the master bedroom is exquisite — from the king size bed you can enjoy the beautiful view through the floor to ceiling bay windows. The middle bedroom has a double bed with a twin bunk bed. The back bedroom has a queen bed and opens out onto the back deck. There are two full size bathrooms with bathtub/shower combination on the second floor and a half bath on the first floor. Full size top-loading washing machine and dryer on the first floor.

Wi-fi internet throughout the house. TVs in the living room and master bedroom (Direct TV expanded package with HBO and Showtime -- parental controls available). TVs are also connected to internet for easy ordering of NetFlix movies. We also have a bunch of family board games and card games available.

Finally, we are very conveniently located for travelers coming in and out of the city. Washington National Airport is less than 3 miles away (15-20 minutes in good traffic) or you can take Metro from Union Station directly to National Airport. We are, of course, super convenient for anyone traveling by train — trains depart Union Station almost every hour for destinations up and down the east coast — catch a train and be in Manhattan in less than 4 hours (2 hours if you take the express Acela train) -- go catch a Broadway show!

Whatever your interest, whatever your need, we are confident you will feel at home while enjoying your vacation or tending to business in the nation's capital.

Why Nevena S Hougen chose Capitol Hill

We love Capitol Hill and it is so convenient to all the sites in Washington DC. We are only one block to the Union Station Metro and Amtrak express train to New York. It takes less then 25 minutes walking to get to National Monument, 10 min to Capitol Building, Library of Congress and Supreme Court. All tourist attractions are convenient and there is lots to do right here in the neighborhood. There is a lot of restaurants with great food, parks and is very safe, historic and family oriented. The neighbors are wonderful. It is located in the heart of the Capitol Hill historic district. Eastern Market is very close by where you can get fresh and organic food, art and vintage clothing,antique furniture , etc.

Location is perfect for anything you want to do in Washington DC and it’s a great jumping off point if you want to explore Virginia and Maryland.

Heaven on Capital Hill

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in DC and couldn't have been happier with our accommodations in Capital Hill. Plenty of room and very clean. Nevena was extremely helpful as well. I will stay here every time I'm in DC if it's available!!

Great for Families

  • 5 of 5

The house was in a fantastic location, walking distance from the Capitol. The neighborhood was nice and quiet and very charming. The inside of the house was clean, well-kept, comfortable, and nicely decorated. We fit a large family comfortably in the two living room areas, plenty of seating and places to congregate. It's perfect if you want to experience authentic DC living. to It was hard to leave!!

Fantastic house, excellent location

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house with my students to attend a meeting in DC. We all loved it. The kitchen is very functional so we were able to save lots of money on food. Beds and rooms are very comfortable. Best meeting for us so far because of the house.

Nevena the owner was super nice and helpful.

Great Spot!

  • 5 of 5

We had four adults and three children in this wonderful home near the Union Station and it worked to perfection for all of our needs. The house had lots of space, games and was well supplied for our long weekend needs. A park nearby, shopping and transportation just out the door. We enjoyed exploring the city and relaxing in this beautiful home. Thank you!

So special!

  • 5 of 5

My only hesitation in writing a review is that the house is going to be booked next time I want to stay there! This is a special place because of Nevena, the attention to detail within the home and where it's located within DC. We had four adults and three kids and enjoyed a perfect stay. I hope future renters will take great care of this place so it can be enjoyed by many of us for a long time.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a great weekend in DC, with our three teenage children. The location of this property was absolutely perfect. Union station, the hub for all transportation, great place to grab a quick meal, on the go, was literally a 3-4 minute walk from this row home. 5 minute walk to the Capitol Building, market close by, great neighborhood restaurants. Could not have asked for anything more!!!
