About Michael Showalter

My wife and I have lived on Capitol Hill for 15 years. We love it here. It's a small town in the middle of a big city. Since we've been here, the neighborhood has continued to improve. Restauranteurs discovered H Street about 10 years ago and the area is booming. I'm a tour guide and my wife works in government so it's been the perfect place for us to enjoy our fine city without the burden of a lengthy commute from the suburbs.

Michael Showalter purchased this townhome in 2001

Why Michael Showalter chose Eastern Market

This house is only blocks from numerous coffee shops, restaurants and grocery stores. We keep high standards for our house and we try to make sure our guests understand that. We're thrilled that we can share our house and neighborhood with people from all over the world. It's wonderfully tight-knit neighborhood of Capitol Hill is full of families and schools and playgrounds. Our guests will enjoy being within walking distance to so many amenities.

What makes this townhome unique

This house is close enough to enjoy the tourist sites yet also close to the neighborhood aspects that can make a longer stay more amenable. Enjoy the many restaurants of our neighborhood, or walk to Whole Foods to get the items you need to cook your meals in our fully furnished kitchen.

Very clean and welcoming.

  • 5 of 5

It was exactly what we were looking for. The pictures and descriptions were right on point. We loved having a "home" away from home. We made several meals at home, walked around the area, went to local restaurants and enjoyed our "urban living". It was a wonderful experience.

Fantastic Location - Very Clean

  • 5 of 5

My husband and three teenagers and I stayed a week. House was very clean. Location is fantastic. Free trolley on H to Union station, city bike stations nearby and easy walk/jog to the mall and all over Capital Hill. My boys are older and we never had an issue in the neighborhood even at night. The plumbing is old and requires care, but owner left easy to follow instructions so we didn't have any issues. This would be a great place if you have baby/toddler. House is stocked with baby gear and the nearby grocery store is full of moms with strollers. Highly recommend.

Beautiful! Very close to downtown.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in June 2017. This property is wonderful. It is a block off H street. H street is very diverse with plenty of restaurants (we highly recommend Chupacabra) nearby. There is a trolley and X2 bus that take you right to Union Station. The owners are very responsive. You can tell they take pride in the property and will go the extra mile to make sure you have a wonderful stay. If you need easy access to DC attractions, this is the perfect place.

Central Washington DC property with excellent facilities

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at Michael's house on a visit to Washington from UK. The property was very well fitted out, comfy and clean. Michael was helpful throughout to facilitate our stay. The house is near to restaurants, shops and plenty of transport links for access to the Mall and across the city. Thanks.
