Overview

About the property

3 bedroom, 3 1/2 bath with optional studio apt. with king bed.

This newly renovated 3 bedroom with each having its own bathroom Row House is located in the Capitol Hill Historic District within walking distance to all the DC sights such as US Capitol, US Senate, Washington Monuments, The White House, Union Station, Judicial Building and downtown DC. This house was completely renovated 3 years ago.

It is located in the safest neighborhood of Washington DC, Capitol Hill - Historic District. There are numerous grocery stores, restaurants and high end shopping areas within walking distance.

Capitol Hill Historic District takes its name from the hill, which rises in the center of the Federal City and extends eastward. Stretching easterly behind the Capitol Building along wide avenues lies the residential area known as Capitol Hill.

History of Capital Hill: Capitol Hill, one of the oldest residential communities in Washington, has grown from a small boarding house community for members of Congress to an area of more than 150 squares embracing a number of separate neighborhoods. In the early years of the Republic few Congressmen wished to establish permanent residence in the city. Instead, most preferred to live in boarding houses within walking distance of the Capitol. Nothing remains of this community, and the area closest to the Capitol contains the Library of Congress, the Supreme Court, and the House and Senate Office buildings. Capitol Hill is the largest residential historic district in the District of Columbia. Almost every street is composed of row houses of different stylistic varieties and periods forming a continuous wall broken only by street intersections.

The Area: 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 combining Richardsonian Romanesque, Queen Anne, and Eastlakian motifs. Within the Historic District, you will find the most luxurious accommodation in the one of the best areas in Washington DC with many restaurants, cafes and places to shop, including the Eastern Market, the city's largest farmers' market and flea market.

If available we can provide parking for 1 vehicle at Union Station which is 3 blocks from this rental. It is available on a first come basis.

Please check our other properties 3526541, 3550803 & 4015008 in Capitol Hill with homeaway.com.

If you have a question about our rental please don't hesitate to call Bob Finn at 623-297-8193. I sometimes call the person inquiring about our rental, but am finding that lots of people don't answer their phones these days. I find that it is some times easier to communicate in a phone conversation then it is by email. We want to make sure there is no misunderstanding about the location of our rentals and it amenities. Parking is limited in DC so if you are driving to DC you might want to talk with Bob about some parking solutions.

Nice house in a great neighborhood!

  • 4 of 5

Great location, close to Capitol Hill and Union Station. A little tight for our family of six but not too bad. Lots of stairs. The rental manager was great to work with.

Lovely, comfortable, exquisite, well appointed property just steps to the Capitol.

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect DC base and retreat for our family. Quiet, beautiful neighborhood close to the Capitol. All of our needs were anticipated and provided for. Beautiful and peaceful bedrooms and family room with breakfast nook. Fully furnished kitchen and laundry. Great space that allowed our family memorable alone and together times. Highly recommend!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The house is very spacious and clean. We were only four people but it should still be comfortable with six.The staggered floors of a row house mean that each bedroom has a sense of privacy. Living area was very homey with plenty of seating. Kitchen was well-equipped with everything we needed, though we could have done with a few more teaspoons. We also had trouble making the dishwasher carry out its complete cycle, thinking we had started it numerous times to find it had not run properly. I don't think there's anything wrong with it; I just think we failed to push a button hard enough or something like that. I hope it finally completed its cycle when we left it running at the end! The best feature of the kitchen was a giant map of the area, so we could plot out our plans without using a tiny device screen.

Bob sent lots of information before our arrival and it was helpful. A couple of suggestions on that front: first, it might be nice if this info were consolidated into one document rather than so many emails; and second, it would be great to have that document or some type of welcome folder/notebook with neighborhood info, household details, etc, provided in print form at the house itself. Perhaps this does exist but we didn't see it (I'd suggest an obvious location like the card/game table in the den).

The location is perfect for visits to the Supreme Court, Library of Congress, Folger Shakespeare Library, Postal Museum, and the Capitol. Other major sights are slightly less convenient but can be reached via longer walks or by using the various $1 Circulator bus routes available nearby and around Union Station (where you can also get the Metro). For example, one evening we took the red line down to the Tidal Basin and walked all the monuments (took Uber back a few hours later as the red line stops after 8:00pm). If you fancy an evening out in Georgetown, the yellow line runs until quite late at night.

Being a residential area adjacent to government offices, it's extremely quiet at night and we all slept well. Within a few blocks there are several restaurants and a serviceable (though expensive) small grocery store. And if you're Catholic like I am, it's very handy on Sunday morning to have a church practically across the street!

All in all, Bob and Kay offered a smooth and pleasant stay that I would recommend to others, including my travel clients, without hesitation.

Everything we needed, in good working order, and an oustanding location!

  • 5 of 5

After we had a bad experience with an AirBnB property in San Diego last summer we were a little apprehensive ... but we had no problems here, other than tired feet after all the walking around the Capitol and the Museums! Truly a great location for touring the federal buildings.

The property is a multi-level gem with comfortable beds, nice amenities and thoughtful hosts that provided a wealth of information prior to our arrival.

We loved the style and layout of the property as well as the location.

  • 5 of 5

Great location! Great amenities! However, if you don't like stairs, then this is not the place for you. Everything from check in to check out was smooth. We would love to stay here again if we come back to visit.
