After Georgetown to the west, Capitol Hill is Washington's oldest neighborhood. In its earliest days, most of the residents were members of Congress who lived in boarding houses and dormitories surrounding the Capitol. As the neighborhood evolved, row houses replaced boarding houses and the Hill began to grow as a neighborhood filled with families, as well as Washington's who's who. As you walk around this stately neighborhood, don't be surprised if you see faces you've seen in the news. A number of senators and representatives make their home on the Hill.

In addition to the U.S. Capitol, the Hill includes other significant American landmarks such as the U.S. Supreme Court, the Library of Congress, the Folger Shakespeare Library, Union Station, the U.S. Marine Corps Barracks, the Washington Naval Yard, Congressional Cemetery, Lincoln Park, and the Eastern Market. All of these sights are within easy walking distance and most are Metro-accessible. Just down the hill from the Capitol is the National Mall with all of the monuments and memorials iconic to Washington, as well as more than 10 museums and galleries of art and artifacts.

To the east of the Capitol is the Eastern Market—one of the only remaining merchant markets left in Washington. While the market bustles during the week, it is on the weekends that it acquires its character and charm as residents from all over the city and visitors from all over the world come to the market to enjoy breakfast; purchase fresh meats, produce, and breads; stroll through the adjacent flea market; and browse the latest art and jewelry crafted by local artists and artisans.

During the spring and summer months, a visit to the U.S. Marine Corps Barracks at 8th and I Streets SE will allow you to see the Marine Corps Silent Drill Team in action. This 24-man rifle platoon performs precision maneuvers with their 10.5 lb M-1 Garand rifles with fixed bayonets.

Over at the U.S. Capitol, the newly opened visitor's center allows visitors to experience the Capitol from the ground up. The center features several state statues in Emancipation Hall and a museum that chronicles the history of the U.S. Capitol from its cornerstone laying in 1789 by George Washington to the present day. Tickets for the Senate and House galleries are available here.

The Library of Congress' Jefferson Building, just across the street from the Capitol, is the world's largest repository of books and media in the world. The building is open to the public and the Renaissance and classical art are breathtaking.

These and other sites make staying on Capitol Hill a must if you're visiting Washington on business or for pleasure.

About Allen

The redhead next to me is my wife Ana.

We have 2 daughters who are grown and are on their own ( not really, if you are a parent you know) and a 14 pound Schnoodle ( he thinks he is a giant). We have been living in the DC metro area for about 36 years and absolutely love it. Washington DC is a beautiful city, it really is and for people coming here to spend their vacations or attend conferences, weddings, funerals (The Arlington Cemetery), graduations, sight seeing, festivals etc. etc. there isn't any city that offers so much.

I manage the properties and Ana tells me what to do (!!!) We are a great team and enjoy doing what we do.

Allen purchased this townhome in 1987

Excellent Home Away from Home for DC Base Camp

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this historic, family friendly town home for our Spring Break week's visit to Washington and loved it! Yes it is an older home with its creaky staircase but just added to the ambience!:) We were a group of grandparents (my husband & myself) plus our son and daughter in law, and our 10 year old grandson and 7 year old granddaughter. This unit has all the amenities needed-fully furnished kitchen with dishwasher, disposal, microwave, full stove, and full sized refrigerator. Plus a private off street parking spot included in the gated back yard. We never used the car during our stay because this unit is only 2 blocks from the Potomac Ave Metro station which we used daily to traverse the Washington area to any desired destination. We also loved the fact that we could shop at the Harris Teeter Grocery store which is only a quick walking block away! Allen was extremely attentive to our needs when we had an issue with the dishwasher which happened to malfunction during our visit. He bought and installed a new one in less than 24 hours of our report of the current one not working.

We would definitely stay in this unit again in the future. Highly recommend due to the location and value.

Thanks, Allen, for a great week in Washington! Look forward to staying with you again in the future!

Sincerely, The Dunhams

Lovely home with great location close to Metro and grocery

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Loved being a block away from the grocery store with the metro just a bit further than that. So convenient. The beds were comfortable and we loved the extra books/magazines/tour guides available. We had everything that we needed during out stay. I would definitely rent this place again if we were to return to DC.

Great place to rent

  • 5 of 5

Allen, the homeowner, was great. From the very first email I sent, he responded to each right away and our deposit was refunded almost immediately after our check out. He was also able to let us check in early, since there was no one occupying the home the night before our arrival. The location was perfect. The grocery store, that is literally right around the corner, was perfect for walking over and grabbing whatever food items we needed for the day. Uber worked out great to get us to and from certain activities. We had our own car, but it was easier and very cheap to take Uber when needed. You could even walk from the home to the museums, but on most days, we were so exhausted from all the activities we opted to take the easy way back. I highly recommend seeing a show at the Ford Theatre and we spent a day with DC trails bus tour (took us to all the major monuments). I've already recommended this home to several of my friends who plan to visit the DC area.

Excellent location, exactly as described.

  • 4 of 5

We had a good stay here. The location is really good: the grocery store is walking distance, as is the metro. A four minute metro ride to the National Mall (or a 20 minute walk), and you're there!

The off street parking was great to have, although a little hard to get in and out of with a minivan.

The house is older, but very clean and secure. It was exactly as described in the listing. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils, etc. We even baked a pie from scratch with no problems.

There is construction happening on the corner, two houses away, so there's a lot of "beep beep beep" in the mornings on weekdays, but hopefully that's temporary.

I should mention that the master bedroom has no transom window above the door, and no lock, so if you were hoping for some privacy from the kids, it's a bit hard to find here.

Comfortable and convenient

  • 4 of 5

The listing description is accurate but I would highlight that there is only one shared bathroom upstairs. The description also makes clear that the pull out sofa is in the living room. For some reason I was envisioning another den-like area. This is the only shared living space and it is open to the rest of the house at the bottom of the stairs and has to be walked through to access the kitchen/downstairs bathroom. This makes things tricky if you have someone sleeping there. We all got up and went to sleep around the same time so it wasn't really an issue but this is not the property for you if that is going to be a problem. The sofa in there could use an update - looked well-worn - but was comfortable. Beds in other rooms were comfortable too with fans to keep air moving around which was nice. I will echo what other reviewers said regarding noise. It is an older building so you can def. hear creaking as people walk inside and general neighborhood sounds coming from outside. I had read this and brought a small white noise machine and the noise didn't bother me at all. The metro and grocery store are nearby. We also uber-ed a lot and that was easy to do as well. There is a fun little street a few blocks away with great restaurants that we really enjoyed too (especially Ted's Bulletin...YUM!) The owner/mgr provided excellent customer service. I'd say he went above and beyond expected customer service. I would def. recommend this property for someone wanting a 3 bedroom place in a convenient location at a reasonable price.
