The rental is on the main floor of the home and has 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, and a den for an extra sleeping area. The over 1000sqft of living space is perfect for a couple or a family of six.

Lovely home in the Capitol Hill area!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at this property! We loved that it was so close to the metro, parks and walking to the downtown area! It was perfect for our family of three! Alison and her husband were very helpful when we needed suggestions or tools to repair something.

As Good as Advertised!

  • 5 of 5

The owners really delivered. Our stay in DC was wonderful. The home is lovely and comfortable. We really enjoyed the view of the neighborhood through the dining room bay windows. The neighborhood was safe for families and architecturally and historically interesting. The home is close to shopping, restaurants and the Capitol.

Perfect Fit

  • 5 of 5

This was an excellent fit for our family looking to sight see with teenagers. The lower level was perfect for our two girls ages 13 & 16 with a pull-out couch and futon. The location was ideal and close to many of the best parts of DC with excellent eating all around. Neighborhood was quiet, apartment clean upon arrival with good air conditioning and comfortable bedding. Also, it was greatly appreciated the evident care that went into our questions prior to arrival and after our return home - very prompt and thorough! Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!

Perfect Location on Capitol Hill

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Castle on the Hill! We brought our two boys (ages 10 and 5) and had fun walking the few blocks to 8th Street to take them to some of our favorite restaurants, like Belga and Ted's Bulletin. It was a really easy walk, and walking to Eastern Market was also a cinch.

Having the parking permit made life so so simple. We saved money on parking and didn't have to deal with the hassle of re-parking. We also found a spot easily near the house.

The place itself had plenty of room for us, and was equipped with many thoughtful touches, including baskets of brochures, maps, and walking tour info. for seeing the neighborhood and many of the highlights of DC like museums and other attractions. There were helmets for biking and rackets for games, and the fridge was full of condiments, always welcome when you're trying to cook for just a few days! The home was meticulously clean, the decor was tasteful and comfortable, and we appreciated having a washer and dryer. We'd definitely stay here again!
