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 (let us know ahead of time so we can provide you with a temporary parking permit - there is a $25 charge that will cover the duration of the stay). 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.

Service-minded owners, clean apartment, close to everything

  • 4 of 5
I stayed here with a colleague as we attended a conference at the Walter E Washington Convention Centre. We walked to the convention centre in 50 minutes, at a leisurely pace. You can also take the subway from Union Station, but in rush hour that does not make the trip any quicker. Buses may be a better option, or a taxi.

The apartment is located in a quiet and charming neighbourhood. The apartment is clean and has everything you'll need, including a laundry machine. You can also obtain a parking permit and park right outside. The owners are very organized and really care about your stay.

Family get-away to DC

  • 5 of 5
My family of 4 rented out the flat for 3 nights in DC. The amenities fit our schedule perfect (full kitchen was a huge help with the kids), and charming decor made it a pleasure to spend our time. The location is perfect for touring the city with kids. Walk to Easter Market for brunch, and swing by the Capitol and Supreme Court on the way back. Stanton park is right out the front door - again perfect for the kiddos to run around. Highly recommended!

Owner's Response: Troy, thanks for returning to our flat -- this time with your kids! You have an amazing and energetic family that really took advantage of the flat's location and offerings. It was great to hear about your solid breakfast and then adventures as you conquered the sites of our city. We hope you four come back this April (as promised) for the famous cherry blossoms!

Perfect Flat, Perfect Location, and Perfect Hosts

  • 5 of 5
My partner and I just spent a glorious weekend at Betina and Joshua's flat. The accomodations are top-notch with every detail accounted for. The location is perfect for all of the touristy things that you want to accomplish as well as escaping in a neighborhood where you can live as a local. We will stay here every time we return to DC and look forward to returning already.

We stayed a week to explore DC for our 5-year anniversary vacation and had the best time staying in Betina and Josh's flat. The location couldn't have been better - just a short walk to 2 metro stations, the Capitol, and a super quick walk to the Capitol bike share, plus there is a bus stop right in front of the flat too. The neighborhood is charming - even a bit dreamy. It was fun to feel like locals. Every restaurant and cuisine you could want within a short walk and a beautiful park just across the street. The flat had everything we needed and was extremely clean, cozy (but not too cozy), had a very comfy bed, and space for all our stuff - especially the bathroom. Betina and Josh were just a text message away and were so friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. They really have thought of everything. If we did it all again we wouldn't change a thing!

Owner's Response: We loved having you for your anniversary! Hosting people like you that include us in the milestone makes having our flat that much sweeter. Therefore, we wouldn't change a thing either. Please come back and visit us again!

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!!!

Owner's Response: We are honored to have been part of your honeymoon. As far as I know, there are anniversaries every year so please feel free to come back to the flat each year! 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.

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.
