This is an attractive ground floor flat in a Victorian town house, and was completely renovated in 2010. It is on a quiet residential street, yet as centrally located as it gets. 'Restaurant Row', a stretch of Massachusetts Avenue with numerous restaurants, is only one block away.
Less than five blocks away:
- US Capitol
- US Supreme Court
- Library of Congress
- Folger Shakespeare Library
- Belmont-Paul Women's Equality museum
- Union Station
Within 1.5 miles:
- Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum
- Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History
- National Gallery of Art
- Smithsonian American Art Museum
- National Museum of the American Indian
- Hirshorn Museum (modern art)
- National Archives
- Verizon Center (Washington Wizards NBA team)
- Madam Tussaud's
- International Spy Museum
- US Botanical Garden
- National Building Museum
You will not need a car. In terms of size, the flat is ideal for a couple, or perhaps a couple with a child. It is also suitable for seniors, because the entrance is at street level and there are no stairs. The flat is totally independent from the main house above, with a separate entrance, mechanical systems, phone line, etc. To sum it up, this little place is small in size, but big on charm!

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 $120 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
We picked this home expressly for vacation rental use, with the hindsight of having lived in this area for close to twenty years. It is just ideally situated with a combination of easy access to the major sites, and quiet once back home.
The location! This is a place which is extremely quiet, where you are the shortest possible distance to the major DC attractions, and where you feel safe walking at any hour of night or day. It's a neighborhood that is utterly livable. There is wonderful grocery shopping nearby, restaurants you would visit with the family, bookstores, etc. Metro is a few blocks away if you need to go beyond walking range.
Beautiful area. Highly recommended. I'm very fussy
We had a great time at this place in DC. Nice and clean. Great for a couple, but not for many more. Very comfortable bed and sofa. Kitchen is small but adequate. We didn't cook except to boil water, but you could make simple meals no problem, and it is nicely set up. Not far from bus, metro, train, and walking distance to mall, though not "close" to mall. Quiet neighborhood. We heard footsteps of people upstairs, but then we hear that at home also. I would much rather stay in a place like this than a hotel, for our 8 nights.
This flat provided everything we needed for our 3 day stay. Great place to relax after walking around DC all day.
Everything worked well from the kitchen to the wifi and I had no complain. Cozy and quiet stay in the heart of D.C. Thank you!
This property was clean, convenient, safe feeling, and beautifully located to the Mall, museums, and restaurants. We would love to come again!
We very much enjoyed our stay at this flat. Amenities were just as described, the shower was great, and we appreciated borrowing one of the umbrellas during a downpour. It was about a 10 minute walk to Union Station or Eastern Market metro stations. We found that we tended to walk to the Capitol and take the Circulator from there (it also picks up at Union Station). The notes that Alex provides about the area were very helpful. Both the Whole Foods and Giant supermarkets are not far away. Connecting to the wifi was easy and fast. Most of all, we appreciated Alex's flexibility when our flight was cancelled as he was very accommodating for a change in our plans.
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.
