Washington DC Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Large Studio/Open Floor Plan (816 Sq ft/ 76 meters ) Sleeps 1-4; Deposit $189

At 816 sq ft, (76 meters), this ground level studio apt., located in the heart of Capitol Hill, is more spacious then most one bedroom apts on The Hill. The unit offers city living w/ plenty of international accents. Whether it’s the Moroccan lanterns that cast exotic shadows in the open corridor, or the French coffee and pastries that lure you to the bistro-styled dining area, the French and American owners definitely have the “French Touch.” This unit is extremely spacious w/ its dedicated bedroom, living, dining, kitchen, reading nook & bathroom. The queen bed, twin day bed and futon couch in the living area accommodate up to 4 people comfortably.

YOUR HOME AWAY FROM HOME... The unit features a kitchen, dining area, bedroom, living room, with central air, washer/dryer, steam dishwasher, toaster, microwave, stove, granite counter-tops, accent lighting, exposed brick, ceramic floor, “California”-style closet, flat screen TV w/ cable, Nintendo Wii console and games, gas grill and free Wi-FI.

WE'VE THOUGHT OF EVERYTHING... High-quality linen, bathrobes, slippers, luxury soaps, iron/board, dishes, coffee grinders, coffee makers, tea pot, champagne and wine glasses, cocktail shaker, luggage racks, playing cards, a first-aid kit, cooking and grilling utensils, eclectic with books for kids and adults, first aid kit and a handyman's toolkit.

We provide starter items so that you don't have to run to the store for basic things like condiments/seasonings, cooking oil, teas, sugar, washing detergent, paper goods, etc.

We even have a portable foot bath and salts for after those long walks around the National Mall.

OUTSIDE YOUR DOOR... Like Paris, Washington, DC is a walking city. Step outside the front entrance and explore both the popular and hidden treasures of Capitol Hill. A ten-minute walk takes you to bustling Eastern Market—-one of the only remaining merchant markets left in Washington. A trip on the weekend gives visitors a sense of the character and charm that residents and guests from all over the world have come to appreciate. Browse the craft stands of local artists and artisans or shop for antiques. Enjoy breakfast at the Market Lunch or pick up some fresh produce, fish or meat to bring back for the grill.

The unit is several blocks from the U.S. Capitol and minutes from the Library of Congress, Supreme Court, Union Station and National Mall. Great location for Spring Break, Summer vacations and Fall/Winter Holidays.

PARKING: If you have a car, there is ample on-street parking and we'll provide a complimentary parking pass.

CONVENIENT TO KEY ATTRACTIONS: Within 10-20 minutes walking, you will find many significant American landmarks, museums, and monuments including the U.S. Capitol, U.S. Supreme Court, the Library of Congress, Folger Shakespeare Library, Union Station, the Marine Corps Barracks, and Congressional Cemetery. Venture down one of the historic residential alleyways like Archibald Walk and Brown’s Court. Each will tell a story of their own.

Walk, bike or take the train to other convenient sites and neighborhood including the White House, Arlington Cemetery, Georgetown, Dupont Circle, Woodley Park and Adams Morgan. Capital Bikeshare stations are blocks away in every direction.

Well-mannered children are welcome.

Smoking is not permitted in the unit.

About Owner

She's American, he's French and together they've created a special place filled with the best of both worlds.

Owner purchased this apartment in 1996

Why Owner chose Washington DC

Location, Location, Location. We wanted to be close to the action, yet far enough away to enjoy a quiet night of sleep. It's easily accessible to major attraction and highways. The house was originally built in 1920 and totally renovated to include the most up-to-date amenities.

What makes this apartment unique

The unit is equipped with everything you need. Whatever is missing is only a request away. We're always available to assist. One guest described their visit as 'it was like staying with friends'. On the other hand, if you are totally self sufficient, you'll never see us. Only know we're a text or phone call away.

The home was beautiful and the owners were wonderful!!!

  • 5 of 5

It was my husband's first visit to Washington D.C. and I have to admit, I picked the perfect place to stay! The home was immaculate, beautiful, and wonderfully comfortable. The neighborhood was the perfect distance from museums and dining. Carla mentioned that a Capitol Bike Share dock was a few blocks away from the house. Touring all the monuments on bike was the perfect way to spend a day! The Eastern Market was within walking distance, so we were able to shop for evening meals every day. Fred and Carla were so nice and gracious! And, yes, we experienced Fred's perfect cup of European coffee. And yes, my husband is now the proud owner of an Aero Press :) I just can't say enough about what a wonderful experience it was to stay in this Capitol Hill home! If we ever visit again, we will definitely stay with Fred and Carla!

Wonderful stay here

  • 5 of 5

This was a great find. Comfortable, well appointed, super comfortable bed, and the hosts were extremely responsive. I wish we had had more time to enjoy it than our too, too short weekend stay. They even provided a parking permit, which was great for our visitors. Its so convenient and walk-able to the Metro, Union Station and the National Mall, that we had no need for a car at all, and if we did want to go beyond walking distance, we never waited longer than a few minutes for an Uber. My ONLY complaint is that there was no control for A/C. There was a lockable screen door front and rear, which provided a nice cross ventilation. Though we did not take advantage of it, there is a lovely patio and barbecue grill accessible from the rear of the apartment. I would certainly stay here again, and not hesitate to recommend.

Great Place to Start and Experience D.C. Like A Local

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this property. The area where it is located is super cute. The property had everything we needed and was super clean. We were traveling with our daughter and she loved it too (her bed was super comfy). The property is located close to the National Mall where the majority of the attractions and museums are. The owners were nice and accommodating. The one thing that we liked the most is that we got to experience the city like locals.

Lovely, cozy and very convenient !

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful family stay ! We didn't need our car (which was easy to park, something really rare in DC!) and could walk or bike downtown. Carla and Fred welcomed us warmly and gave us any information needed (information book left in the vacation rental is well done and updated). Thank you !
