About the property

Bedroom 1, Bathroom 1, Sleeps 4

Combining the nation’s most prestigious historic neighborhood, classic Capitol Hill architecture and modern comfort, our one bedroom, one bathroom street level flat will delight you with amenities, style and convenience to historical landmarks in the nation’s capital. Perfect for one to four people, we provide the fullest experience that Washington D.C. has to offer. In fact, you can experience the nation's capital just as President Obama did when he was a U.S. Senator living on 'the Hill' -- he lived about 25 yards away from our door in another amazing home!

And, if you REALY want to stay in the hear of DC in our great flat on the Hill, please make us an offer and just email us -- I bet we can make it work!

About Our Flat:

Our flat features a medium sized master bedroom with a queen bed and flat screen TV, full bathroom with bathtub and plenty of closet space. In the open concept living area, there is a working fireplace, delightfully accented with art and photography highlighting this wonderful city and an original brick wall unique to Capitol Hill running the length of the interior. There is also a leather couch/seating area, two coffee tables and an additional flat screen TV with full cable (high speed WiFi is also provided throughout the unit).

Special Features:

For those desiring the complete experience, we offer an open kitchen equipped with utensils, plates and glassware, refrigerator, oven/stove, toaster, coffee maker, French press, microwave, and garbage disposal. We also provide a shopping cart with wheels perfect for a short walk to Eastern Market to buy your fresh and local produce, meats, cheeses and even artisan crafts. Opening to a breakfast nook, the kitchen fits 4-5 people and soaks up natural light in the morning. At night dim the lights for a romantic dinner looking out onto C Street and enjoying some of the best wines around from the world famous Schneider's of Capitol Hill just two blocks away. The entire flat includes: bedding/linens, queen sized blow up mattress, towels, washer/dryer, laundry detergent, paper towels, toilet paper, dish soap and hand soap, kitchen rags (coffee, tea and sugar are on the house).

Location, Location, Location:

The central location of our unit in Capitol Hill is a wonderful addition to why our home is perfect for your stay. The preferred method of transportation is by foot, with the U.S. Capitol only blocks away and there is also easily accessible street parking and a Capitol Bikeshare station, the city’s public bike system, close by. If you’ll be utilizing our subway system, the Metro, Union Station red line Metro stop is only a few blocks away (we absolutely encourage the use of our clean and safe public transit system). If you are bringing a car, street parking is available and we will get you the pass (let us know ahead of time so we can provide you with a temporary parking permit - there is a $30 charge that will cover the duration of the stay). However you choose your means of transportation, our flat’s proximity to the offerings of D.C. will make your trip more enjoyable and memorable. A tree lined walk across the street guides you along the monuments that make Washington a destination; the U.S. Capitol Building, Supreme Court, Library of Congress, National Mall, Smithsonian Museums and The White House, to name a few. Just blocks away, the Noma/H Street corridor showcases newly opened restaurants and shops that are generating some of the hottest buzz in the city. Eastern Market and Pennsylvania Avenue offer even more to take in -- Barracks Row featuring hip bars and restaurants. Other local attractions include baseball at Nationals Park, D.C. United soccer games at grand RFK Stadium, the Verizon Center for top-notch shows, professional hockey, and professional basketball (all are less than 2 miles away). If you prefer the arts, the Shakespeare Theater Company at Sidney Harmon Hall, free outdoor world class jazz concerts at the Sculpture Garden in late May through September and “Screen on the Green” outdoor classic film viewing with the Capitol as the backdrop. Shopping malls are close by too in Georgetown, Pentagon City, and recently opened Tanger Outlet Mall at the National Harbor.

About Joshua Chernikoff

Joshua is a native Washingtonian (who had two stints living in Prague, CZ) and Betina is from Argentina, Mexico and Israel. For the past decade though, both have been proud 'Hill' residents enjoying the neighborhood from their front steps, beautiful backyard, on bike, and on long walks. When they are not out experiencing all of the city has to offer, Joshua spends his time on his two education based businesses while Betina works at a management consulting firm. Joining them now on the long walks, is their daughter Camilla, who was born in December 2014. They are all into traveling, fitness, food, and huge fans of VRBO (taking at least one extended international trip a year where they stay at a VRBO spot).

Joshua Chernikoff purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Joshua Chernikoff chose Washington DC

As avid travelers and huge fans of the VRBO/HomeAway concept, Joshua, Betina and baby Camilla have envisioned their home as a perfect place to feel like a true Washingtonian while being centrally located to explore the capital city.

Great Apartment at a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was clean, well decorated and well appointed. It was exactly as it was described in the promotional material. For anyone visiting Washington and wanting to spend time at or around the Capital and the National Mall you would be hard pressed to find a better location. The Capital was a 12 minute walk, when we needed groceries the Capital Market or the Eastern Market were only steps away as were many restaurants and the Metro was just under a 10 minute walk to Union Station. I highly recommend it and would stay there again.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this apartment. Everything you could require was provided. Location was easily accessible to all important sites. Capitol Hill is certainly a very historic and interesting area to explore. The only downside was that the overhead lighting was not conducive to reading.

Owner's Response: Loved having your family! In terms of the reading, there was a dimmer on the light. The dimmer may have been set low at that time, but it can light the entire room. I wish you would've have asked us, we are always happy to help!

Good rental in good location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for 4 nights with our grandson. Everything is as described, The bedroom and bath are small in size but adequate. The kitchen has all appliances--gas stove, fridge, microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker--and enough glasses, plates, silverware, pots and pans to make breakfast and a simple dinner. You can walk to a small park (which our grandson enjoyed), a small (and expensive) place for basic groceries, and several restaurants in 5 to 10 minutes. (We even had a Senator spotting one evening) The only thing that made the place less than great was the absence of a comfortable chair which my husband really missed.

Great location, well kept , clean , easy communication and transportation.

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from DC and enjoyed our stay here. Owners upstairs and always return emails and texts quickly. Apartment was very clean, bedroom had a nice queen bed w TV. The older teens w us slept on the sofa in living room, probably not comfortable enough for older folks, but fine for them. TV in front of sofa as well. Free cable TV and internet signal was appreciated. Didn't stay long enough to use washer and dryer. We purchased a parking pass and left car there the entire time. The 4 of us used Uber everywhere, from this location rarely paid more than $10 a ride.

PS- Favorite museum is the Newseum. Did a nighttime walk around the monuments near the Lincoln Memorial, beautiful at night.

beautiful apt

  • 4 of 5

beautiful apartment with all the essentials that we needed for our 3 night stay. the only disadvantage was that you could hear everything going on upstairs (we understood that this is an older townhouse but it was still a downside to our stay)

Owner's Response: We loved having you stay with us! We also know that sometimes families below us can hear our two year old daughter Camilla -- she is pretty talkative. And, the house was built in the early 1900's so those floors are a bit thin. Of course, I think our guests love the fact that we do live right above and our there for suggestions, help, and just to say hello. We hope you come back soon and say "hello" too!

Capitol Hill, aside from being a synonym for the seat of the United States Congress, is the largest historic residential neighborhood in Washington D.C., stretching east in front of the U.S. Capitol along wide avenues. The Capitol Hill neighborhood today straddles two quadrants of the city, Southeast and Northeast, and a large portion is now designated as the Capitol Hill historic district, where our house is located. The name Capitol Hill is often used to refer to both the historic district and to the larger neighborhood around it.

Capitol Hill's landmarks include not only the United States Capitol, but also the Senate and House office buildings, the Supreme Court building, the Library of Congress, the Marine Barracks, the Washington Navy Yard, Nationals Park (the home of the Washington Nationals baseball team) and Eastern Market.

Eastern Market is an 1873 public market on 7th Street SE, where vendors sell fresh meat and produce in indoor stalls and at outdoor farmers' stands. It is also the site of an outdoor local arts and crafts market every weekend.

Capitol Hill is largely a residential neighborhood (where we have been proud to call home for 10 years) composed predominantly of rowhouses of different stylistic varieties and periods. Side by side exist early 19th century manor houses, Federal townhouses, small frame dwellings, ornate Italianate bracketed houses, and the late 19th century press brick row houses with their often whimsical decorative elements.
