Our property comes with two bikes for your use! Please feel free to use our bikes (if you like) and discover how easy it is to get all around Capitol Hill. Pop over three blocks to Eastern Market for groceries or organic local produce or walk over to 8th street to 'restaurant row' where there is a restaurant for every palate!

Capitol Hill is one of the oldest neighborhoods in DC. Most of the early residents were members of Congress. As the neighborhood evolved, row houses were built and Capitol Hill began to grow as a city within the city for families and Washington's Who's Who! Many members of Congress make their homes on the Hill. Don't be surprised if you walk by or sit next to at a restaurant, someone you will recognize.

It is an easy walk to the US Capitol, Senate Office buildings, Supreme Court, Library of Congress and Folgers Shakespeare Library. Close by are all the Smithsonian Museums on the Mall including the National Gallery of Art, Air and Space Museum, Museum of Natural History, National Archives, American Indian Museum and more.

There are three meto stops on Capitol Hill. Just a few stops away enjoy the theater or movies at Gallery Place. Shakespeare Theater Company performing at Sidney Harmon Hall and the Lansburgh Theatre, Verizon Center with basketball and hockey. H Street, Georgetown, 14th Street Corridor and Adams Morgan are all within easy access.

Nice little apartment close to it all!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 had a great stay at Karen's apartment. The apartment was clean, cool (important when the heat index was over 100 every day), convenient to the metro and within walking distance of the Capitol and Eastern Market. So much better than staying in a hotel. We would highly recommend!

Great rental in DC

  • 5 of 5

Our family very much enjoyed our stay here. Karen was a great host. The apartment is a short walk to the metro station, which made getting around the city very easy. Shops and restaurants are also just a few blocks away. There was record heat outside during our stay, but because of its garden-level location, the apartment stayed naturally cool and we only had to turn on the AC a couple of times. The ceiling fan in the master bedroom was great. We made use of the washer and dryer a few times with no issues. We would definitely stay here again. Thanks so much, Karen!

Location, Location & extras galore!

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough good things about this place!

Blocks away from the Capitol, less than a mile walk to East Market Metro stop, it is perfect. If you want to eat, Barracks Row and the Eastern Market are both an easy walk.

And best of all are the extras.

2 Bikes and locks make it easy to ride to all the monuments.

2 folding scooters in the closet for younger kids

2 huge umbrellas in case it rains

Free Parking space - parking is not easy in DC

4 plastic Metro cards that are left in apt so you can just recharge and don't have to buy and recharge.

Washer & Dryer

Canvas bags for shopping and info about local places to shop

We stayed for a week with our two teenage sons and it was perfect! Karen was very responsive when I texted her and she appreciates it if you let her know about anything that needs to be fixed. It looks a bit bigger in the pictures and my older son said the bunk bed was a bit noisy, but couldn't have been more pleased with this choice. Liked it so much, I reserved it for a girls trip in January.

This was a great property for our family vacation.

  • 4 of 5

The home is in a great neighborhood, near public transportation, and Uber was always 4 minutes away. The apartment was clean and comfortably furnished. We ran out of hot water for the shower, but otherwise, it housed five of us comfortably. I would definitely return to this property.

Wonderful Neighborhood and Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had so much fun on our trip to DC. The apartment was perfect for our family of four. Clean, cozy and only blocks from the metro, great restaurants and eastern market. We felt like we were at home. Karen had everything well labeled and was super easy to get a hold of if we had questions. We would definitely go back! Thank you Karen - Amy & Kai G
