We had a wonderful time. The owner was very easy to work with. I thought the house looked better than pictured. The location was fabulous. We had 3 adults and 7 children and were very comfortable. The Eastern market was a real treat, and access to the subway was easy.

The house is located on Capitol Hill at the intersection of A Street, SE & 7th Street, SE. The neighborhood has excellent transport links & the location is very convenient for the Eastern Market Metro Station on the orange line, which is only 2 blocks away, and the Union Metro Station on the red line, which is within a 20-minute walk from the house. Union Station is the major station from which you can commute anywhere in the city, in fact, if you wish to, you can day trip to New York in just 3 hours on a regular train service from there. If you want to take a trolley tour of DC you can do it from Union Station, as well. From the house itself, you can walk to the historic Eastern Market, the Library of Congress, the Capitol Building & a great variety of museums in just 10-15 minutes.
