My husband is an architect and I am a graphic designer. We've raise two kids on the Hill and now they are off to college. We've lived in this neighborhood for over 25 years and absolutely love it!

Monica Snellings purchased this apartment in 2004

Capitol Hill is our home. We love it and know you will too!

Capitol Hill is a wonderful neighborhood full of pocket parks and beautiful old homes. Beyond the monuments and museums there is another side to Washington. It's a wonderful family neighborhood and a vibrant community with small businesses. We love walking to Eastern Market on the weekends to get fresh fruits and veggies. Don't miss the fresh pasta! We take a stroll through the flea market visiting our favorite vendors and then sit with a good cup of coffee and watch the world go by.

I love to cook and we both love to eat! Washington has lots of restaurants with every possible ethnic variety available. H Street, NE just a few minutes away has many nice options from Asian to Ethiopian to Belgian. On 8th Street SE you will find great burgers, seafood and homemade pop tarts.

We love to walk and have recently given up our car. The public transportation options are so plentiful we just didn't need it anymore. You can go by Metro, bus, or Bikeshare. If you need a car for a few hours Zipcars are plentiful and close by. If you need a car for a day trip car rental options are plentiful at Union Station. and for those who come to DC by car there is off street parking at Union Station a 10 minute walk away.

Cosy appartment at perfect location!

My husband, our 2 year old son and myself stayed here for a week in November. We had a great week! It's a cosy appartment, big enough for us three. It had a good kitchen en very good shower. The fireplace was really nice, since it was chilly outside. The location is the best! Close to the metro, walking distance to the Capitol and Mall, supermarket and childrens playground nearby. The area is really nice with all the brownstone houses.
We really enjoyed Washington DC and this appartment made our week very comfortable.
There was some misunderstandig about our arrival date with the maid, so we arrived in an appartment that was not cleaned yet. The next day the owner made sure the maid came and she did. The owner gave us back the clearing fee, which was a nice gesture.
We would stay here again!

This a very convenient place to stay, not only because it is located at a walking distance from attractions but also to the Union Station. The place was well decorated and beautiful. I loved walking to the Market and to experience the neighborhood appeal. It was very clean, and furniture and amenities were in mint conditions. Most importantly, the owner was a call away and very helpful. I highly recommend this property for your perfect Washington DC experience.

First DC Visit

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 29, 2013
  • Stayed: Oct 2013
The apartment is well kept and located in a nice, safe and quiet neighborhood. The bus stops (X8) are located at the apartment or if you want to walk to the metro rail at Union Station for 'far' locations, it's just a few blocks away. The Capitol (one end of the Mall) is also located in walking distance from this apartment. This was our first visit to DC and we learned that walking a lot is the biggest requirement. We missed the convenience of having a rental car because of the costly and unavailable parking situations. Mass transit is not part of our lifestyle so living this way was a drawback on our visit. Do we want to visit DC again, of course!

Owner's Response: It's true that walking is a part of life in DC and if you are not used to it it might seem like a bother. But we've found that the options for public transit along with cabs make getting around easy. And if you really need a car Zip Cars are easy to reserve and plentiful. Glad you enjoyed your stay!
