Sophisticated and urban penthouse located in a historic 1898 row house. If you want to live like a local, you will experience authentic DC. You can have a glass of wine on your private terrace. After a long day of sightseeing, you can watch a movie on the 40" flat screen.
Interaction with Guests: I'm always available via e-mail.
The building has previously been home to numerous members of Congress.

Starbucks, Pret-a-Manger, SweetGreen, GoodStuff Eatery, We the Pizza, convenience stores, CVS, and more just a few minutes' walk.

If this calendar shows unavailability, I do have other apartments in the building. See these listing numbers:
Also, take a look at my 5-star properties in Georgetown:
Capitol Hill is the center of Washington. You are steps to the U.S. Capitol. It is not unusual to see members of Congress hurrying along to lunch or strolling about with friends. Eastern Market, our historic public market, is just minutes away.
We are just steps to the Capitol South metro. You can even take the metro directly from the airport (Reagan National) to our building.
We are very close to Union Station. The DC Circulator bus (just $1 and runs every 10 minutes) departs from Union Station and stops 1 block from our building. But you could also walk if you prefer. It takes 15-20 minutes to walk to Union Station. It's a beautiful walk!
You really don't need a car in this location. But we understand that some people drive into the city. Do you need parking? Just ask. We may be able to offer an off-street space at a small additional fee.
Other Things to Note
The apartment is on the 3rd floor. There is no elevator.
Check-in is anytime after 4pm. Check-out is 11am.
The apartment was exactly as described. Great location and easy access to the main attractions. There are a couple of restaurants directly round the corner and the Mexican stays open till 11 so you can get food late if you get stuck.
Small but functional one bedroom apartment. Practical for our family of 3 visiting D.C. on brief stop. Furnishings were lovely. Apartment was clean and quiet. Off street parking very convenient. Ideal location in Capitol Hill. Metro only steps away. Eateries and grocery a brief walk. Attractions essentially at your fingertips. Quiet and quaint neighborhood. Perfect location for our needs.
I stumbled upon Federal Flats and am so glad I did. Here's what we loved about our temporary 'home':
1) Washer & Dryer: We had been vacationing for 6 days by the time we arrived and needed to do a small load of laundry. The machine was easy to operate and sufficient;
2) Bed: Most comfortable bed EVER! We have never slept on a cloud but, for some reason, that analogy best describes our experience.
3) Location: Being steps away from a METRO (Capitol South) stop is such a luxury.
Dolen, the manager, was very available and helpful. The only minor issue we encountered was a slow drain in the bathroom sink - an easy fix.
This apartment was in the perfect location for us - right across the street from the Library of Congress, steps from the Capitol South metro station. It is comfortable, well equipped, clean. Because it is on the top floor no noise from neighbors - some noise from street, but good fan to alleviate that. Adorable patio, comfortable furniture - everything we needed for a great vacation in DC.
We stayed for 4 nights to take in all DC had to offer. This place was the best as far as local and convenience to The Mall, The Metro stops and local eateries. The building is cute, well maintained and all the space 2 people would need for time in DC. The cold filtered water in the fridge was very welcome on those hot days! The bed was by far the most comfortable I have ever had on my trips away from home. Booking was simple and communication with Dolen supreme! Could not recommend this place more!
First of all, the owner, Dolen, is knowledgable and professional. She answered all of my emails within 15 minutes of sending them, which just represents the care she puts in to making sure you're completely comfortable before and during your stay. As for the apartment itself, it is absolutely stunning. You have your own private staircase which I found adorable, leading up to this well furnished and clean apartment. It is extremely modern, clean, and functional. There's not enough time in the day to express how much we enjoyed our stay and experience with Dolen and her apartment. We'd come back again and again!
