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

Great location, responsive owner

  • 5 of 5

The best thing about this property is the location - near the Metro and a grocery store! The house was as advertised, a great place for our family to rest between our sightseeing adventures. Allen responded quickly to all questions and requests. I felt that the kitchen coukd use a bit more in the way of baking pans and utensils but I know we cook more than most people and I was able to make do for the time we were there. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to friends!

Great location two Metro stops from all the action. Great comfortable house. Would stay again

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. This house is as described. Harris Tweeter Grocery Store was just around the corner and two blocks from the Potomac Metro Stop. It was very convenient to get to all the biggies in DC. Eat one stop over at Eastern Market stop. Matchbox Pizza and Ted's Bulletin. The house was creaky in just the right way. Mom loved the backyard, where we enjoyed coffee every morning. The owners were available with immediate responses to an issue, that was quickly resolved. They were very polite and attentive to our needs.

great location

  • 5 of 5

wow. We really had room to spread out and the parking space was great (no we didn't drive anywhere, but we had to do something with our car). Having a grocery right around the corner and the subway just a few minutes walk was perfect with our small kids. The house was great, clean, and the neighbors friendly. We were told good morning more times a day than in our home town. The only thing needed was a new can opener and a measuring cup. Great stay.

Great Location and size

  • 4 of 5

This place is very accurate with the location. Went everywhere by metro and groceries one block away. Only area that needs improvement is the fact that there is not really enough towels. We had all women and one towel per person is not enough. Only 1 dish towel in kitchen. Plus charges us if there were stains or tears in towels which they already were stained and had tears. There was not a blanket or pillow for pull out couch. The contract states we needed to wash and dry our towels before we left. Which is difficult to do if everyone is leaving at different times. I have traveled all over and always rented these places and never been asked to do laundry. This was the only problem we had. Would recommend this place to friends if they added more linens and did their own laundry.

Perfect location and ambience

  • 5 of 5

The location is perfect. It's three short blocks from a Metro stop that has three lines so that was awesome. The kitchen and baths have almost everything you would need and we did quite a bit of cooking. The bedrooms are all on the second floor and the stairs are steep. Beds are on the soft side but very doable. The dining room table served the five of us well and would have been confortable for several more. The owner is very responsive (and even mailed one of our group a phone charger that was left!). Bathrooms are clean but pretty tiny and hard to move around in, typical of townhouses in this area. All said, we'd definitely go back here... Excellent VRBO. Thanks, Allen
