1900'S MODERN FLAT IN HISTORIC DISTRICT, BLOCKS FROM FOOD, MUSEUMS & MONUMENTS

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.

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!

And, if you forget something, we are here to help with that too. We hope to see you again and very soon!

Capital Hill Flat

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this Capital Hill flat. When we decided to go to DC, we also decided to drive and bring along our 2 small Boston Terrier dogs. This flat allowed dogs and it was perfect for our stay. There was a wonderful park less than a block away where we could walk our dogs. For our site seeing adventures, it was close to all the destinations near Capital Hill and an easy walk to the metro to get to the rest. The flat had a wonderful well appointed kitchen and coffee available for their guests! Josh and Betina were very accommodating and responded immediately to any questions we had. If you're looking for a unique place to stay in DC, we highly recommended this location. We had a great trip!

Owner's Response: So glad to hear you had a great trip Lori and Debby! Your enthusiasm for the exploring the city was obvious from the first email and it carried through your stay. And, being the animal lovers we are, we were happy to get to host your two pets too. Make sure you bring the whole gang back to see us again soon!

Great location/Great amenities

  • 4 of 5
We traveled to DC for a five-day family vacation with her two children (ages 10 & 14). The apartment was very clean and the amenities were just like a high-end hotel. Wonderful hosts and a great location from the Capital. This apartment is perfect for couples or business travelers but the sleeping arrangement was a little uncomfortable for our 2 children who had to share a narrow futon. I would highly recommend this 1 bedroom apartment for 2-3 people but not 4.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review Scott. We try to provide the best experience possible. We have heard from other families that our flat is like your very own "high-end" hotel in the heart of Capitol Hill! Too bad to hear the sleeping arrangement didn't work out for your two children. We had a similar family of four, boy and girl nearly the same ages as your children, only two weeks before your family, and it worked out great. In fact, they are coming back in November to join us again. Hope to see you and your family back on "the Hill."

Great location, lovely flat

  • 5 of 5
We spent three nights at the flat during our family vacation to D.C. It was the perfect home base for our site seeing and such a comfortable place to stay. We were able to walk to many sites or take the metro (Union Station is a short walk away) The flat was immaculate and fully equipped (great coffee maker!). The owners, who live upstairs) were very helpful through the reservation process and were available to answer questions, etc. We have stayed at a number of VRBOs and this one definitely ranks at the top... Exactly as described. Thanks for a great stay!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your kind words. We also stay at VRBO whenever we can so it is awesome to hear we rank near the top for your standards. And, equally nice to hear our guests appreciate the proximity to the sites, our availability, and even the small things -- like the coffee maker. Please come back and visit us soon (we promise to have a fresh pot of coffee ready for you upon arrival)!

Fantastic Flat!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the flat just after the 4th of July, and it was fantastic. Clean, bright, and fresh. The bedroom was perfect for my husband and I and the fouton in the living area was great for the kids! We drove to DC, then pretty much just parked the car for the week. With-in an easy walking distance to 2 metro stations, and a very do-able walk to the mall (even with kids)! This will be our go-to stay whenever we head to the DC area. I can't recommend it enough!

Owner's Response: You and your family were so great to have at our flat and we are honored to be your "go to" when you come back to DC. Your kids really seemed to enjoy the city -- and even the walking too! Both Betina and I hope your son enjoys the Washington Nationals hat and wears it with pride back home. See you again soon!

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.
