|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
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).
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.
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
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.
However your wish to spend your time in the nation’s capital, staying at our flat is both a convenient and amenity full way to enjoy it. We’re always on site (we live right above the flat) for any help you may need if our provided binder with maps, tips, food and entertainment suggestions isn’t enough. Feel free to ask us a question about D.C. or talk to us about staying. We look forward to speaking with you!
All I can say is perfection. I had to be on the hill for work for two days and the easy walk (10 minutes) to the hill was not only easy, but beautiful. Yes, I loved the park as well. Josh and Bettina were absolutely helpful and there just really are not enough adjectives to describe my elation with this find.
Truth is, I kind of want to keep it a secret to ensure it is available in the future. It was priced so well, especially compared to hotel rates in the area. Best VRBO experience ever.
I was traveling alone, but could have easily had another adult and I can also see a family here.
Thanks for making this trip so much like being in a home away from home.
I hope to return and spend time here just for fun and bike travel.
This is a great location with being only a 10 minute walk from the Capitol building. Joshua and Benita were beyond friendly on our arrival on the Tuesday just before Christmas. Quick tip for anyone traveling to DC over the holidays, you can see nearly everything with no lines on Christmas Eve, trying to get into a museum or the Capitol building the day after Christmas is a guarantee line out the door to wait.
The flat was very nice and just a short walk to Stanton park ( we brought two dogs). We are a family of 4 with two grown children and 2 dogs so things were a bit snug. I would recommend the flat to couples or anyone groups of 3 or with small children. Otherwise, it was a great time!
Rented this cute 1BR for my parents extended visit. They were quite comfortable, far better than if they had stayed with us for their 10 day visit. Just down the street, comfortable living/dining area, properly stocked with basic necessities. Owners live upstairs and are available if needed. Couldn't have been better for our needs.
We were very pleased with our stay on C street. It is very close to the Capital buildings and only a 10 minute walk to the subway/Union station. The street backs on to a large park and is close to shopping and some great restaurants. The apartment was well equipped, comfortable, and quiet. Joshua was very welcoming and helpful and pointed out some interesting places to see. The information sent to us in advance was very handy and identified everything we could possibly need. Thanks to Joshua's recommendations we had some great meals. Thanks Joshua for your hospitality....
My husband and I stayed at this flat for eight nights in November, for a combination business and pleasure trip. The furniture and bed were very comfortable, it was wam and cozy (even during a snowy cold snap), the kitchen and bath were well appointed, and the flat's resource binder had good recommendations for restaurants and other amenities. (We particularly loved the suggested French and Italian restaurants and would add the Harold Black speakeasy next to Acqua 2 to the recommendations.) I loved the flat's table with a window seat, where I could set up my laptop while my husband commandeered the futon and coffee table.
The flat's location was also ideal--only a 15 minute walk to the mall and all its museums and memorials, as well as two areas (one to the north on H streeet and another to the south) with excellent restaurants. The immediate neighborhood is very nice, with a park at the end of the street and a small market, pharmacy, cleaners, etc. within a couple blocks. Staying in a residential neighborhood also gave us the opportunity to feel "local," which we always enjoy. We had a car but were able to obtain a street-parking permit (only $25 for the full 8 days!) through Josh and Betina, and we left the car parked the entire time while exploring the city on foot. For those preferring less pedestrian means of transportation, the train station is just a few blocks away as well.
When we travel to DC again, we'd definitely check into whether Joshua and Betina's flat is available--and we will recommend it to friends visiting the area as well.
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.
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.
