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 'Request Booking' 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?

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.
The location was fine. A bit of a walk to most destinations. The condo was a bit worn and could use some upgrades. Everything felt like it was just old and worn. The main bathroom is tiny and the shower/tub needs some attention. The worse part was the air conditioning/electrical. It is in the kitchen/main room and is VERY LOUD. It was impossible to relax in the main room without the crazy noise. We spent most of our time outside but when we wanted to relax indoors at the end of the day, it was just too noisy. The internet needs an upgrade too. It's all just worn and needs attention.
My family enjoyed our stay at the two bedroom historic brownstone. It was cozy and well equipped for our family of four. The location was great!
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.
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.
