The Eastern Market apartment enjoys a terrific address at 6th and A Street SE, Capitol Hill. Accommodations include a Queen sized bed, Double sized sleeper sofa and 2 Twin beds. There are 2 bathrooms, a modern kitchen, laundry facilities, wireless internet, and TV with cable. This apartment can be divided into a smaller studio, so the layout is unique. Entry using the private entrance from the front of the building, brings you into a large room with living and dining area in the front. The compact, modern kitchen is off the living area. A sleeping area with Queen bed is at the back of this first room separated from the living/dining area by a screen. The first bathroom is opposite the sleeping area. A doorway off the sleeping area, opens to a small hallway with the second bathroom, then the back bedroom with 2 twin beds, arranged head to head along one wall. There is a small outdoor patio off this bedroom.

We are a 4 block walk to the Eastern Market Metro station, accessing the Blue/Orange/Silver lines. What you can't walk to from the front door is easily accessible using the Metro. Our neighborhood offers numerous restaurants, shopping, banking, and services. Grocery options include Eastern Market, Washington's oldest operating fresh food market, Harris Teeter, Safeway and several neighborhood markets.

For guests arriving to DC with a car, we can provide a visitor parking permit, valid for street parking in our immediate neighborhood. Don't worry if you don't have a car, they are not necessary here in the city. Beyond the Metro, there are several bus lines nearby, as well as Capital Bikeshare, Zipcar and Car2go services.

Perfectly located

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this apartment. Located within a short walk of Congress and the National Mall we crammed a lot into a few days. Eastern Market provided great food and we had a soft spot for the Box Car Tavern opposite the market - happy hour 4-7pm! The Nats stadium is a half hour walk and is well worth the trip.

Gordon and Carla very helpful and welcoming and the apartment is comfortable, well-equipped and, thankfully, cool!

Perfect arrangement and location

  • 5 of 5

We had 5 kids with us, and this was a perfect location for exploring DC. The back room was comfortable enough for all the kids, and the hosts set up a double air mattress for us. 2 full baths gave everyone enough privacy. The wifi was strong enough for all our devices, and the TV even has a DVR service so you can record content to watch in the evenings. Overall, a great experience.

Absolutely Perfect for our Family of 5

  • 5 of 5

We loved this apartment. Great location in Capital Hill close to the Metro and walkable to the Capital building. Much better and way more comfortable than staying at a hotel. Hosts were inviting and respected our privacy. The apartment was a relaxing environment each night after touring the monument and museums.

Perfect for our visit

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 loved this apartment for the four nights we were in DC. It's location is great - a few blocks to the metro or a short walk to the Capitol. The accommodations were very comfortable and our kids loved the private oasis they had in the back bedroom. Our hosts were super friendly and helpful. When there was a slight problem with the dryer, she even finished drying our clothes in her own dryer. Thanks again!
