Capitol Hill Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Bedroom 1, Bathroom 1, Sleeps 4

Combining the nation’s most prestigious historic neighborhood, classic Capitol Hill architecture and modern comfort, our one bedroom, one bathroom street level flat will delight you with amenities, style and convenience to historical landmarks in the nation’s capital. Perfect for one to four people, we provide the fullest experience that Washington D.C. has to offer. In fact, you can experience the nation's capital just as President Obama did when he was a U.S. Senator living on 'the Hill' -- he lived about 25 yards away from our door in another amazing home!

About Our Flat:

Our flat features a medium sized master bedroom with a queen bed and flat screen TV, full bathroom with bathtub and plenty of closet space. In the open concept living area, there is a working fireplace, delightfully accented with art and photography highlighting this wonderful city and an original brick wall unique to Capitol Hill running the length of the interior. There is also a leather couch/seating area, two coffee tables and an additional flat screen TV with full cable (high speed WiFi is also provided throughout the unit).

Special Features:

For those desiring the complete experience, we offer an open kitchen equipped with utensils, plates and glassware, refrigerator, oven/stove, toaster, coffee maker, French press, microwave, and garbage disposal. We also provide a shopping cart with wheels perfect for a short walk to Eastern Market to buy your fresh and local produce, meats, cheeses and even artisan crafts. Opening to a breakfast nook, the kitchen fits 4-5 people and soaks up natural light in the morning. At night dim the lights for a romantic dinner looking out onto C Street and enjoying some of the best wines around from the world famous Schneider's of Capitol Hill just two blocks away. The entire flat includes: bedding/linens, queen sized blow up mattress, towels, washer/dryer, laundry detergent, paper towels, toilet paper, dish soap and hand soap, kitchen rags (coffee, tea and sugar are on the house).

Location, Location, Location:

The central location of our unit in Capitol Hill is a wonderful addition to why our home is perfect for your stay. The preferred method of transportation is by foot, with the U.S. Capitol only blocks away and there is also easily accessible street parking and a Capitol Bikeshare station, the city’s public bike system, close by. If you’ll be utilizing our subway system, the Metro, Union Station red line Metro stop is only a few blocks away (we absolutely encourage the use of our clean and safe public transit system). If you are bringing a car, street parking is available and we will get you the pass at no extra charge (let us know ahead of time so we can provide you with a temporary parking permit). However you choose your means of transportation, our flat’s proximity to the offerings of D.C. will make your trip more enjoyable and memorable. A tree lined walk across the street guides you along the monuments that make Washington a destination; the U.S. Capitol Building, Supreme Court, Library of Congress, National Mall, Smithsonian Museums and The White House, to name a few. Just blocks away, the Noma/H Street corridor showcases newly opened restaurants and shops that are generating some of the hottest buzz in the city. Eastern Market and Pennsylvania Avenue offer even more to take in -- Barracks Row featuring hip bars and restaurants. Other local attractions include baseball at Nationals Park, D.C. United soccer games at grand RFK Stadium, the Verizon Center for top-notch shows, professional hockey, and professional basketball (all are less than 2 miles away). If you prefer the arts, the Shakespeare Theater Company at Sidney Harmon Hall, free outdoor world class jazz concerts at the Sculpture Garden in late May through September and “Screen on the Green” outdoor classic film viewing with the Capitol as the backdrop. Shopping malls are close by too in Georgetown, Pentagon City, and recently opened Tanger Outlet Mall at the National Harbor.

About Joshua Chernikoff

Joshua is a native Washingtonian (who had two stints living in Prague, CZ) and Betina is from Argentina, Mexico and Israel. For the past decade though, both have been proud 'Hill' residents enjoying the neighborhood from their front steps, beautiful backyard, on bike, and on long walks. When they are not out experiencing all of the city has to offer, Joshua spends his time on his two education based businesses while Betina works at a management consulting firm. They are both into fitness, family, food, and fans of VRBO (taking at least one extended international trips a year where they stay at a VRBO spot).

Joshua Chernikoff purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Joshua Chernikoff chose Capitol Hill

As avid travelers and huge fans of the VRBO/HomeAway concept, Joshua and Betina have envisioned their home as a perfect place to feel like a true Washingtonian while being centrally located to explore the capital city.

Like One of the Locals

  • 5 of 5
My family enjoyed our time in Washington DC in a large part due to the location of the flat. The rental was in a great residential area, but close to everything. My family rented bikes (just around the corner), played in the playground (across the street), and rode the metro (a few blocks walk). We were able to see all the DC sites. The flat was clean and the perfect size for our family of four. My two children slept comfortably on the futon. It was great to have a kitchen available, although we enjoyed most of our meals at the local restaurants. One of my favorite things about our trip was staying among the locals. It was a true taste of living in a quaint area of a large city. When we do return to DC, we would love to stay at this location again. I highly recommend it.

Owner's Response: We are so happy to hear that you four felt like locals (and the flat felt like home too)! Betina and I think one of the beautiful parts of our section of DC is that you are close enough to anything and everything DC has to offer, and get to live like a "Hill" resident too. When you do return to DC, you are more than welcome to stay with us as we really enjoyed having you too.

FANTASTIC, AWESOME - WOULD STAY AGAIN IN A HEARTBEAT!!!

  • 5 of 5
This place was absolutely fantastic!! So cute, so clean, and the absolute PERFECT location for walking or biking (or using the Metro) to all the sights Washington DC has to offer. The place is well stocked with anything you could ever need during your stay, and Josh and Betina are super sweet and accessable to anything we needed. And the place is SUPER quiet in the evenings - I'm a light sleeper and worried that with being so close to all the major sights, it might be noisy, but this was not the case at all! I didn't even have to use earplugs. The next time we visit Washington DC we will for sure being staying at this exact location again! We went for our honeymoon, and it was perfect, due in large part to staying at such a great place!!!

You know there will be new great places to eat and places to see. And, we will always be here to help "guide" your trip and be in this perfect location too. Thanks again for letting us be part of such an important milestone in your life.

Location + property owners= a great week in DC

  • 5 of 5
This rental flat is as advertised and then some! Location is perfect ...a shot walk to the Capital, Union Station Metro, Eastern Market Metro and Market and many fine restaurants. The unit was perfect for us.. a nice clean modern look.. all the necessary items to call it home for a week. We were quick to notice how clean it was. Josh and Betina take great pride in their rental flat. Provided by the owners ,which was unexpected ..shampoo, soap, conditioner, hand soap, toilet tissue, paper towels and even coffee and tea. Josh and Betina are a wonderful young couple that share their enthusiasm for the city they call home. They were always available to answer questions and offer suggestions.
Thank you for a wonderful stay! We hope to return soon.

Great spot in Washington

  • 5 of 5
Joshua and Betina's apartment was a great find. It was modern, clean and very comfortable. It also had lots of extra things provided that help make things easier for travelers. It was in a perfect location to explore the sites of Washington and was also close to good restuarants. We wished we had stayed longer.

Super clean and convenient to major DC points of interest!

  • 5 of 5
Two of us stayed at this flat during our four-day, strictly-for-pleasure visit to DC. The flat is extremely clean, well-furnished, and convenient to major DC tourist attractions. We felt completely safe in the neighborhood at all times even though we were out late at night on a couple of occasions while walking back from the Metro. The neighborhood is active but quiet. The host couple could not be more friendly and thorough, providing tips on where to eat, what to see, and how to get there. There was nothing that we needed that wasn't on hand for our use! The neighborhood has restaurants within easy walking distance or you can buy groceries close by and take advantage of the full, on-site kitchen. We were able to walk to the Capitol and the Mall and take in the monuments, museums, and memorials. We parked our car for three days and either biked, walked, or used the convenient public transportation system. We particularly enjoyed and recommend the "Monuments and Memorials Sunset Bike Tour" originating at L'Enfant Plaza and the bike ride we took along the Potomac River to Mount Vernon. We will definitely stay here again. Thanks to Joshua and Betina for helping to make our stay a great one!

Owner's Response: We would love to have you back again anytime! Betina and I were truly impressed with how you took full advantage of the space and explored DC from the moment the sun came up and even into the night with your bike tour. We will be passing along your great adventure tips to our future guests. And, as I said, we hope to see you again too!

This place is clean & comfortable. Great for weekend/weekday stay on Capitol Hill. Hosts had great coffee, good communication and were gracious and pleasant when I accidentally missed the 10:00am checkout in my scramble to get my daughter enrolled in the Senate Page School. We also left some items behind which Josh reported to me & even delivered across the park to my daughter. Perfect place to stay with nice amenities, TV w/ cable, WiFi, small kitchen & again - - SPOTLESS. We will be back!

Capitol Hill, aside from being a synonym for the seat of the United States Congress, is the largest historic residential neighborhood in Washington D.C., stretching east in front of the U.S. Capitol along wide avenues. 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, where our house is located. 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, Nationals Park (the home of the Washington Nationals baseball team) and Eastern Market.

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 local arts and crafts market every weekend.

Capitol Hill is largely a residential neighborhood (where we have been proud to call home for 10 years) composed predominantly of rowhouses of different stylistic varieties and periods. Side by side exist early 19th century manor houses, Federal townhouses, small frame dwellings, ornate Italianate bracketed houses, and the late 19th century press brick row houses with their often whimsical decorative elements.
