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.
Dia Michels purchased this townhome in 1983
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!
We had a group of 8 people and the house was very comfortable for us. Nice kitchen and everything was pretty clean. We had a nice trip, thanks!
This was our first time to DC. The house is located in a nice neighborhood with very nice neighbors. The Owner, Dia, went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed. We found the house very close to good restaurants and public transportation. I would highly recommend this location and owner!!
Another chaperone and I took a small group of students to DC and stayed at this house. The house was clean and spacious, a nice mix of historical elements mixed with modern conveniences. There was plenty of room for all six of us to sleep comfortably; the flat screen TVs in each sleeping room added some of that "comfort of home" feel when resting after a long day of walking around DC. The back patio and grill were perfect for a night of cooking out. There is a very cool bakery/coffee house just a few minutes walk at the end of the street. The Metro station is also a short walk, maybe 5 minutes. Dia was very helpful and flexible throughout the process; communication was excellent. We will definitely look to stay here the next time we visit.
Coming all the way from London, UK my family and I throughly enjoyed staying in this excellent town house. The great joy of staying here is that the Eastern Market neighbourhood is very pleasant but at the same time you can, (as we did), walk from the house to all the main sites round the Capitol Area. The house itself is very comfortable and our boys enjoyed having Netflix on the TV. Communication with the owner was excellent. If we ever have the opportunity to go back to DC we would love to stay here again.
The location of this townhouse is perfect for accessing Washington DC's great metro. Restaurants, bars, pharmacy and groceries are a five minute walk away through a nice neighborhood. Three bathrooms make the house nice for a crowd. A peaceful and fun stay is easy here. The owner is accessible and responsive. The house is clean as a pin. Highly recommended!
Perfect for our family of 6. Great restaurants only 1 block away and my little guys enjoyed see the Marines each day as we walked by the Barracks. GREAT communication with the owners. Just a very easy relaxing vacation.
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.
