This is a remodeled Victorian town house with sun filled bay windows. It is on a quiet residential street, yet as centrally located as it gets. The Capitol complex and the Supreme Court are only three blocks away. 'Restaurant Row', a stretch of Massachusetts Avenue with numerous restaurants, is only one block away. The National Mall, Smithsonian Museums, and the Newseum are all within walking distance. You will not need a car. Built in 1890 and renovated in 2010, the house combines historic charm with a modern layout. It has a completely open floor plan on the main level. It is furnished comfortably for a family of four (five if counting a crib) without cramming. Larger families may want to consider a combined rental of this property with the ground floor flat in the same structure (HomeAway #340015). The main house and ground floor flat are totally independent, with separate entrances and mechanical systems.
Your rental includes a free permit for street parking. However, due to our proximity to the major tourist attractions we recommend not renting a car. Should you need a rental vehicle for a day to visit out-of-town sites, there are rental car offices minutes from the house.

How Reservations Work:
We recommend using the 'Book it Now' button, which will confirm availability and provide a detailed quote before you reach the screen on which you are asked to commit. We book with the $150 cleaning fee, and the balance is due 30 days before arrival. All payments are self-service, via credit card or e-check using HomeAway's secure payments page, and you do not need to provide us credit card information.
Arrival and Departure Logistics: Check out time is 11AM, check in time 3PM. This is to allow time for the cleaners if there is a same-day change-over. If either time poses an issue please let us know, as a it is often possible to make alternative arrangements with the cleaners.
We use a code lock, so there is no need to mail or drop off keys, and you can arrive at any time of night.
My wife and I are both management consultants who have traveled widely for decades, and have developed a strong sense of what we like in a locale and in accommodations. We actively manage our vacation rentals as a future retirement plan, but we select and prepare them by asking a simple test question -- would we be happy to live in them ourselves?
Alec Smyth purchased this townhome in 2010
There is a lot to see in Washington, with over fifty museums, but unfortunately we feature the very longest commutes in the nation. The museums have no parking, which may be a deliberate strategy to reduce the number of cars. Capitol Hill is the area immediately surrounding the US Capitol, and because it is a historical conservation neighborhood of small houses that cannot be altered, it contains almost no hotels. By staying at a home on the Western edge of Capitol Hill, you are closer to the sites than at a hotel, and free from the hassles of commuting because everything is within walking distance. Quite aside from the convenience of the location, both house and neighborhood are charming.
I have just returned from spending 7 nights in this property. It was an absolutely perfect location for seeing all the sights of DC.
Yes you can walk to the Capital, Supreme Court and the Library of Congress. It is also very close to Union Station which makes it so
convenient to take the Circulator Buses to the monuments and museums on the mall as well as George Town. There are so many small restaurants within a short walking distance as well as a small grocery store. It is an extremely safe area. The condo is wonderful we could not have been happier.
I would definitely stay in this lovely condo again.
A nice brownstone that is a 5 minute walk to the Capitol. My 11 year old son loved his room and the location is hard to beat with many good local restaurants within 10 minutes. Additionally, we took advantage of the grill/patio area behind the home. Highly recommended by my family and I.
What a wonderful place! This beautiful home is close to all the attractions. We were able to walk or bike to all the sites very easily. Uber was another speedy option to get around quickly, but we really only needed it at night or if it rained. The backyard is really cute too. I loved being able to have my coffee on the back deck every morning:))))))
Close proximity to public transportation. Home was clean and had everything we needed. Noisy in the mornings and during the day but quiet and peaceful when ready to unwind at night. Watch out for the street sweeper signs, we got a ticket for not moving our car, once we arrived we walked everywhere or caught the bus and it wasn't stressed in our email that you needed to move your car or you will get a ticket. It is an older town home but well done but noisy when walking in house. Book left in home had great tips on groceries and some restaurants and valuable websites for the sights. We would stay here again if we returned to DC.
We stayed at the row house for 4 nights in May 2016.
The location of the row house is excellent. Once you are familiar with the area it is extremely easy to get around. Union Station is only a 10 minute walk. From Union Station you can catch the subway and the hop-on hop-off tours.
The unit is well equipped. The beds are comfortable and the unit is very clean. Remember that the building is old and that the stairs are steep and the floors are slightly sloped. We had everything we could want or need. The BBQ and outdoor space is an added bonus.
I would definitely stay here again, if we were to visit the DC area.
We rented this house in early May for five nights. I really cannot say enough good things about this rental. Five blocks to Union Station. Three blocks from many restaurants, a boutique wine shop, and a small well stocked neighborhood market. Six blocks from Eastern Market (also on the Metro), a gourmet retail supply house that carries every imaginable kind of meat, vegetables, fruits, and other foodstuff stock that home chefs will likely compare to the markets they would find in Paris. Five blocks to the Capitol and Supreme Court, the beginning of the Washington Mall. The house itself is immaculately kept with fireplace, television, two upstair bedrooms and two baths. When I called Alec to say that I couldn't find cable television, he was over in a jiffy to reconfigure the setup, which apparently had been changed by the previous tenant. A very nice and accommodating man. The kitchen is fully equipped; although we prefer to eat out, the combination of the availability of Eastern Market and the nice dining area overlooking a charming neighborhood, proved to be an irresistible bonus. If you like noise, traffic, sirens and the crazy buzz of Washington D.C., perhaps you would prefer the Dupont Circle area, but this neighborhood shows how quiet and peaceful Washington can be, yet only a short walk to everything else you would expect from the nation's capital. One last thing: this is a walking area. Everyone walks--and one feels safe, a very upscale area.
The house is located on a quiet friendly street less than half a block from Stanton Park and one block from Restaurant Row, a block of restaurants with tables right on the sidewalk. Capitol Hill is a historical conservation neighborhood of beautifully maintained, charming old houses. It has a small-town feel and a human scale, is cosmopolitan, and has a thriving cultural scene. The residential area closest to Washington's institutions, it is home to a large number of politicians and VIPs.
Other Activities: US Capitol, Smithsonian Museums, Library of Congress, Supreme Court, National Archives, Newseum, Folger Shakespeare Library
