Overview

Washington DC House Rental Photos and Description

As Close as You Can Get to U.S. Capital

If you want to tour DC by bicycle there is a rental station 1/2 block from this vacation rental, which is only 3 blocks from the US Capitol and the beginning of the National Mall.

The Flat at Library Court is a row house in the historic district with a completely renovated interior and all new furnishings decorated with Washington D.C. flair. You’ll enjoy expansive views of the stately Library of Congress, which is directly across the street. The house backs to Library Court, a 300 year old historic cobblestone street built in the days of horse-drawn buggies.

Why you can’t beat our location: Capitol Hill is a historic residential neighborhood that stretches from the U.S. Capitol, and Pennsylvania Ave, the main corridor, emanates from the Capitol beginning at 2nd Street. We are one block away on 3rd St – the first residential block from the Capitol. The further you get (4th Street, 5th, 6th and so on), the less desirable and less safe the areas become, and the longer your walk to the sites. This is truly as good and as close as it gets! Don’t talk yourself into staying blocks away…

• 1 Block or Less: U.S. Supreme Court, Library of Congress (across the street), Folger (Shakespeare) Theatre

• Within 2 to 3 blocks: U.S. Capitol, U.S. Capitol Visitor Center, Cannon House Office Building, Capitol Mall, U.S. Botanical Garden, South Capital Metro station.

• Tour Bus: The Circulator Tour Bus picks up one block away but most of what you’ll want to see is within a short walk.

• Dining 1 Block or Less: We the Pizza; Good Stuff Eatery (President Obama’s favorite hamburger), Cosi (sandwiches, soups and salads), Starbucks, Sonoma Restaurant and Wine Bar, Hunan Dynasty, Hawk N Dove; Capitol Hill Liquor and Deli

• Stores 1-2 Blocks: Corner Market Grocery Store, Grubb’s Care Pharmacy, Gandel’s Liquor, Riverby Books.

The Penthouse Apartment

Up a flight of stairs, you will enter the Penthouse Apartment of the Flat at Library Court. This two story unit has 3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and expansive views of the stately Library of Congress. The kitchen is fully stocked and the unit has wi-fi, cable TV and central air conditioning/heat.

DESCRIPTION OF NEIGHBORHOOD:

Capitol Hill is the largest historic residential neighborhood in Washington D.C., stretching easterly in front of the United States Capitol along wide avenues. It is one of the oldest residential communities in Washington D.C.

As a geographic feature, Capitol Hill rises near the center of the District of Columbia and extends eastward. The Capitol Hill neighborhood today straddles two quadrants of the city, Southeast and Northeast, and a large portion is now designated as the Capitol Hill historic district. The name Capitol Hill is often used to refer to both the historic district and to the larger neighborhood around it.

Capitol Hill's landmarks include not only the United States Capitol, but also the Senate and House office buildings, the Supreme Court building, the Library of Congress, the Marine Barracks, the Washington Navy Yard, and Congressional Cemetery.

The main non-residential corridor of Capitol Hill is Pennsylvania Avenue, a lively commercial street with shops, restaurants and bars. Eastern Market is an 1873 public market on 7th Street SE, where vendors sell fresh meat and produce in indoor stalls and at outdoor farmers' stands. It is also the site of an outdoor flea market every weekend.

If available, we can provide parking for 1 vehicle at Union Station which is 5 blocks from this rental.

Great location & lots of room

Everything was as advertised. Extremely well equipped with many little extras. We had main level bedroom for us and room for 3 granddaughters upstairs. Owners effort to please guests is over the top!

Nicely remodeled, clean, convenient.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed Library Courts Flat #2. The apartment was nicely furnished and very clean. The beds were comfortable. The location was convenient. Only two things we would change. #1 the windows only had blinds. Without curtains or shades, the rooms were very bright and sunny at 6am making it difficult to sleep. Which brings me to #2. The light woke everyone up very early in the morning (we were traveling with kids) and our neighbors said the hard wood floors carried all our footsteps and noises into their apartment (flat #1). Because the noise carried, we felt like we didn't have a lot of privacy. We had to tip toe around in the mornings and always felt like others were listening. I think if they added some room darkening shades, it would be fabulous.

Perfect Property for our Group

  • 5 of 5

This flat was perfect for our group of seven. The prime location directly across the street from the Library of Congress was extremely convenient, and most major tourist attractions were within walking distance. A metro station was just a few blocks in either direction. The house was spotless upon check-in, and Bob was good enough to recommend grocery delivery from a local store, which we took advantage of. The rooms were comfortable and there was plenty of room to stretch out. The neighborhood was quiet and safe. I would recommend this property to any group looking to vacation in D.C.

Best spot in DC!

  • 5 of 5

This place- along with other flat served our family of 12 so well as we celebrated my mom's retirement. The owner/manager could not have been more organized and helped us at every turn. They recommended everything and then you take it as you see fit. Transportation? You do not need a vehicle. Every public transportation stops nearby and the flats were so close you could walk. Capitol Hill neighborhood is a delight. Eastern market is down the street and a surplus of shops/restaurants/ etc are with in a short walk. One of our favorite things were winding down at the flat with a dinner and siting on the stoop out front. Everyone on the Hill was so great and many stopped by to speak to us. It was refreshing to feel like a part of the community. I can not recommend this place and it's owners any higher and plan to only stay here upon our return. I feel like anywhere else may just disappoint. Stay at this place or the other flat - both were spotless and well appointed. Thanks Mr. Bob! It was a delight!

Great family rendezvous spot!

  • 5 of 5

This was a fabulous location and property! A mere 4 blocks from the South Capitol metro and a block from great restaurants and bars. Also walking distance to the Mall and the Eastern Market, and an organic grocery just beyond that. We had 3 generations there for my daughter's college graduation, and all fit just fine. We all took advantage of the washer dryer and enjoyed lounging together in the mornings in the kitchen/great room. The combo lock meant we were all free to come and go. We were 6 adults but there was clearly more room for others and some baby paraphernalia should visitors need it. I would stay there again in a heartbeat!
