Overview

Washington DC Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 4)

This is a one-bedroom, one-bathroom English basement with a kitchen equipped with the basics for cooking & eating in, has full-sized appliances, including a full-sized washer and dryer. With a queen-sized pull out sofa in the living room, it can accommodate up to 4 people.

The space underwent a full renovation in 2011 and is elegantly decorated in a mid-century modern style. You enter into the living/dining area, which includes a desk in the alcove area under the window. The kitchen is just on the other side of a half-wall, making for an open, inviting living area.

The property is located a half-block off of Lincoln Park, the heart of this section of Capitol Hill. We are a beautiful, family-friendly neighborhood that is centrally located between the lively nightlife of H St, the delicious fresh food & local wares sold at Eastern Market, and the historic presence of the Capitol Building, Library of Congress, and the Supreme Court.

Transit options include:

- Bus lines just a block away in either direction

- 2 metro stations covering 3 metro lines: Eastern Market (blue/orange lines) is a 12-minute walk and Union Station (red line) is a 20-minute walk away.

- A Capitol Bikeshare station 2 blocks away

- Car2Go smart cars are generally available

- Cabs, of course, are also always an option

Get a taste of DC living while staying in this inviting, historic neighborhood!

Very clean, bright, comfortable, 10 minute walk to metro.

  • 5 of 5

This basement apartment is bright, super clean, inviting and everything is in perfect working order. It has a full kitchen, washer/dryer, towels, shampoo, detergents, etc. The owner, Jen, went above and beyond by providing a coffee grinder for our use. She also provides a very thorough info packet with specific directions about everything, including what verbage to use to help a cab driver get you to the house quickly. A great home away from home for my family of four. It is an easy 10 minute walk through a beautiful neighborhood to the Eastern Market and metro and Uber is quick and easy to use. The bed was on the softer side for us but that is a personal preference. We did hear the owner's dog "dancing" upstairs but it was not bothersome at all, in fact, my kids rather enjoyed it. White noise machines are provided if you need. There's a couple small neighborhood markets within 1 block and plenty of restaurants within a 10 minute walk. Great space, beautifully decorated, very clean, friendly owner, safe neighborhood, perfect vacation rental.

Great apartment in great location!

  • 5 of 5

Me, my wife, and our two children loved the apartment. Our stay was 4 nights. We were visiting the museums and sights in DC. We did have our van, which we only used if we were going to be out late after dark. Parking on the street was pretty easy; even if we got back late at night I never had to park more than a block or two away (parking pass provided by owners). The location is really close to the museums and sights - just a bit over two miles if I remember correctly, but we used public transportation since we were going to be on our feet all day. A bus stop was about a five minute walk, and the metro station was about a 12 minute walk. Taxis were easy to get, and there are plenty of Uber drivers around if you could not find a taxi (while close to the apartment). There is also a BikeShare station 1.5 blocks away. The neighborhood was very nice, and we always felt safe. We did not see any homeless people, or people begging for money - even around the metro station 12 minutes away. The apartment had everything we needed - even coffee. The kitchen had full supply of dishes and appliances. There was even some staple items such as salt, pepper, oil for cooking, and powdered coffee cream. A full grocery store was only a 5 minute drive by car. The apartment was very clean, nicely decorated, and the bedding and furniture were very comfortable. The owners were very responsive with any questions/issues we had. Next time we come to DC we will certainly try to book the place again. Thanks!

Loved this apartment!

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed my stay here and would definitely rent from Jen again. It's obvious that great care was taken in decorating and lighting the apartment. Even though it's an English Basement, the lighting was so good that it never felt dark or gloomy. The decor was tasteful and everything tied together color-wise, even the bathroom towels! I loved the bright, clean kitchen and the new appliances....and the set of matching dishes (no garage sale odds and ends!). The apartment was cool and dry, even in the 90+ DC weather. The location was perfect for my needs, even though the proximity to P&C Market with their yummy croissants and baguettes wasn't good for my waistline. Jen was super nice and very responsive to all my questions.

Our WA DC Trip

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for a week at this basement apartment and enjoyed our time there. The walk to the metro at the Eastern Market was easy and gave us the chance to explore the neighborhood. The kids enjoyed catching fireflies on our walks home in the evening, since we don't have them here at home. We enjoyed the pastries at the corner market and met a great golden retriever named Oscar that the kids fell in love with. My only complaint and it really isn't a complaint at all... more funny than anything... the dog upstairs played ball at midnight a few times. We could hear toe nails as the dog was running across the length of the floor, drop the ball with a bong bong bong sound and then pick it back up and run back to the other side of the unit. We would definitely recommend the apartment to friends who want to visit WA DC.
