This new guest studio apartment in our DC rowhouse is 2 blocks from Metro (NoMa station on Red Line) near the hip H Street restaurant/bar corridor & easy walk to the Capitol & monuments. Includes kitchen, coffee, tv/internet, washer/dryer & more.
Our classic Capitol Hill rowhome was built in 1923, and still has original brickwork and trim throughout. The basement apartment, however, is brand new with all new high-end ceramic floors, granite countertops and window sills, and a sleek modern kitchen. It comfortably sleeps two adults.
We don't live in this apartment. It's completely dedicated for guests and so we don't have any clothing or other personal items anywhere. The closet & refrigerator are completely available and clear (except for an iron, spare linens, bottled water & condiments).
We're only two blocks from the NoMa-Gallaudet station of the Red Line of the Metro, only one stop from Union Station (or just an eight block walk). There is a Capitol Bikeshare rental station two blocks away as well, and Starbucks, Harris Teeter supermarket, and more just one block further. It's also only a few blocks to Union Market (a high end food market) or the dozens of bars/restaurants of H Street NE.
The apartment is accessed from the rear alley and is controlled by a keypad entry system so no keys are required and check-in is very flexible. We will provide you with a password for WiFi, and the TV has cable and a DVD player. There is no smoking or pets allowed.
Interaction with Guests
Our family lives in an entirely separate unit upstairs. We have two small children, and while there is significant high quality soundproofing insulation, you may hear tiny feet at times! We are always nearby and available to give directions & suggestions, but otherwise we'll respect your privacy. With the keypad access to the apartment, you can arrive anytime without needing a key from us as well.
We love living in the NoMa/H Street/Capitol Hill North neighborhood because we have friendly neighbors, lots of great free community events, and easy transportation options.
It's a great neighborhood for walking & biking. Two large supermarkets are within just a few blocks, and dozens of restaurants are nearby on H Street and elsewhere close by.
Union Market is a fantastic indoor market with high-end local seafood, dairy, bread, coffee, and more - both ingredients to go and plenty of options to eat there.
Our apartment is extremely close to numerous forms of public transportation for travel within DC and along the East Coast.
The NoMa-Gallaudet Metro is 2 blocks away, which is on the Red Line which is the most frequent line in the system and goes to Union Station and throughout the heart of downtown.
There are also numerous bus lines nearby, including the 90-series buses which run often to Adams Morgan, U Street, Eastern Market and Barracks Row.
Union Station is about six blocks away. From there, you can take Amtrak, commuter rail (VRE & MARC), Greyhound, Bolt Bus, Megabus, and more to go up to Philadelphia, New York, and other cities. This is also one of DC's largest indoor malls.
Our neighborhood is mostly flat and very bike-able. The Metropolitan Branch Trail (MBT), one of the best off-road bike lanes in DC, is two blocks away, and there are numerous bike lanes nearby. There is a Capitol Bikeshare station two blocks away, and longer-term bike rentals are available at Union Station. My wife & I actually both commute daily by bike.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Tony's apartment. The listing was just as described, easy to access and Tony was incredibly responsive and helpful. The apartment's proximity to NoMa station, a grocery store and other amenities (Starbucks is a short walk as is CVS and Union Station) makes it especially convenient. Wifi access was reliable, the kitchen was fully stocked and the washer/drier made my two week stay much easier. The bed was really comfortable too! Tony even lent me their guest parking pass for a few days, which (if you know DC at all) is worth its weight in gold. I would highly recommend staying at this apartment and hope to do so again in the coming months.
Extremely clean, modern apartment. Very well equipped. Loved the hassle free check in process. I found Tony to be an excellent host. One of the best Airbnb experiences. Will gladly stay again.
Great location! I Outstanding decoration- very comfortable, safe, and functional. Parking was convenient. I would certainly recommend to a friend or family member. Perfect for two ! Tony was even kind enough to leave out Valentine's Day chocolates to help us celebrate.
Everything was excellent, the place was very clean, it had character and was nicely decorated. All the instructions were on spot and I had no problem to get into the place. I also liked the coded door so I could arrive at anytime and not to be worried about leaving the key somewhere. The place had everything I needed and a nice first aid kid.
Outstanding accommodation! Truly first class experience. You will find it safe, quiet, and extremely well-situated to all conveniences (esp. Metro!). Responded to every question/need in rapid fashion. I highly recommend, be it for one night or several.
We absolutely loved our stay at the apartment. Location was within walking distance to lots of places ( NoMa Gallaudet U Metro, Harris Teeter,Union Market, and a CVS). Very comfortable and well decorated space. Provided us with everything and more!
This was an absolutely fantastic experience. The apartment was incredibly comfortable, with every amenity present (washer/dryer, iron, oven, coffee maker, and much more). We were very pleased with how clean and stylish the room was. It also offers very convenient access to all of DC as the red line can get you across the city in 20 minutes. We appreciated Tony giving us privacy and full access to the apartment during our stay, but he still put a personal touch with a binder full of information about the area and chocolates upon arrival. I would absolutely recommend this location to anyone looking for a comfortable and beautiful place to stay in the city. It truly felt like a home away from home.
We love living in the NoMa/Near Northeast neighborhood of Washington, DC! My wife and I have two young children. While there is high quality soundproofing between our home and our basement rental, it can't stop all of the noise of playing with trains, blocks, and our other fun activities!
We've designed our basement apartment to accommodate friends and family on extended stays in DC, and are happy to make it available on Airbnb as well whenever we can. This is a very friendly neighborhood, with free and welcoming events, markets and concerts within a few blocks on most weekends.
