I moved to Washington DC in 1980 to save the world. Unfortunately, the world could still use quite a bit of help! I, however, fell in love with DC and never left. I met my husband in 1981 and we have lived here ever since. This home was our first house in DC. We currently live in a larger and newer (1905) townhouse in the same neighborhood. We fell in love with Capitol Hill and have raised our three kids here. We love the area and want to share it with others.

This 1858 charming home is from the Civil War era. The house has been totally upgraded with an open layout, 4 flat screen TVs, an amazing leather sectional sofa, fabulous beds and a lovely front porch and backyard. In addition, we just installed solar panels on the roof! Just one block off Barracks Row, the house is caddy-corner to the Marine Barracks Washington, D.C., the oldest active post in the Corps and near the Washington Naval Yard and old Naval Hospital (now a community center). The house is quaint, yet spacious and with a location just 8 blocks from the U.S. Capitol, the location is ideal.
Washington DC is a great place to spend time. The city is compressed, so you can get anywhere is a short time. We have great public transportation (the Eastern Market Metro is just 3 blocks away) and the city is flat, so it is perfect for walking and cycling. Rent this house for access to the entire city. Entertain friends, BBQ in the yard or walk around the block where there are dozens of restaurants. Live theater, great parks, free museums and baseball are all just a few steps away!
This is conveniently located to the mall and many tourist sites in DC. It's close to the Eastern Market Metro as well and 15 - 20 Min. drive from Reagan Airport. The house is as described and has the most big-screen TV's than anyplace I've ever stayed. The neighborhood is nice, quiet and safe. Property is clean and maintained, as well. Coffee shop/bakery right down the street and Eastern Market is a 10-min. walk. I will recommend this place to friends.
Very welcoming, clean, comfortable and having 3 bathrooms was perfect for our 3 families. The house was ideally located one block from the DC Circulator and 3 blocks from the Metro train and bus. One block over are restaurants, cafes, night life and an organic market. We felt very safe having the marine barracks within a couple of blocks also. We have stayed at many VRBO and AIRBNB's and this one is one of the best. Good job Dia!
This was our first time to DC and we were very pleased with everything this home had to offer. Excellent location for seeing DC, convenient to the airport (I made a 35 minute round trip to deliver a relative), very nice parking pass for zone 6. Eastern Market recommendation by owner was great for getting a nice, quick breakfast, and other eating options close by were excellent. Owner was very responsive to questions prior to arrival and helpful when we were there. Home was clean, comfortable, has some upgrades and owner indicated more were on the way. Nothing luxurious or over the top, but we were more than happy with our stay. 4 large screen TVs were great for the evenings since we had 3 kids. I would and already have recommended this property to friends/family.
This was a great house. We were a group of 5 and there was plenty of room. Dia is an attentive host, something we appreciate and are grateful for. The house was comfortable, clean, everything that we needed was at the house, and the house's location is great--close to shops and the metro to the tourist spots. One of the best vrbo places I have stayed at! Thank you, Dia!
My family of 5 just stayed at this row house in DC. Very nice, comfortable, clean historic home! Absolutely loved the area! Very close to restaurants, cafes, Starbucks, and night life! We had a wonderful stay!
This home turned out to be the perfect place for a 4-day, ladies-only getaway. Every year we travel to DC for the National Book Festival + other activities. We loved all the space the 5 of us had to spread out - large living room and dining room, spacious, well-stocked kitchen and 3 baths and bedrooms with quality linens. This beats staying in hotel rooms hands down. We were close to the Metro, restaurants, and grocery stores. We also loved using the Circulator bus (.50 - $1) to get around and the stop was nearby. It's an old house, so expect some uneven floors and steps. The owner, Dia, was very responsive when we had questions.
The home is located in the historic Capitol Hill neighborhood, on a quiet street, just blocks away from restaurants, the Nationals baseball stadium, the Marine Barracks Washington, D.C. (which has free Parades every Friday night in the summer), the Smithsonian museums, the US Capitol, Supreme Court, National Archives, the Library of Congress, or the Newseum, embassies, etc. Getting around is easy, via walking, Metro, Car2Go, ZipCar, BikeShare, and, of course, by personal auto.
