Welcome to our cozy haven in the city. We would love for you to make yourself at home in our renovated basement apartment. It’s located in our 100 year old Capitol Hill row house and is just steps away from the Potomac Avenue Metro Station. The 1 bedroom apartment is perfect for a weekend getaway or a week-long business trip. But you would never need to leave! We provide linens, towels, toiletries and a few snacks, as well as free advice about what’s best to see in DC.
If you decide to venture out into the city, you can leave your car here. Parking is on-street and ample. (Longer term- off street parking can be arranged for an additional fee.) You can see the Metro station from our front steps and several bus lines run just half a block away. We've filled the bookshelf with several guides to DC. If you don’t find what you’re looking for, we have a combined 25 years in the city between us… if you have any questions, we've definitely got answers.
The full kitchen includes a dishwasher, oven, granite counter tops, coffee maker and microwave, etc. Also included is basic service for 4, pots/pans and cooking utensils. We’ve stocked the fridge and cabinets with some basics – coffee, snacks, drinks, etc. And if you're hungry for something we don't have stocked, the grocery store is at the end of our street.
The full bathroom includes standing shower and washer/dryer. We’ve put some detergent and dryer sheets in the bathroom in case you need to do a load of laundry during your stay.
Bedroom has full bed, dresser, nightstand, bookshelf and a closet. There’s also an ironing board and iron in the closet. Outside the bedroom is a granite topped desk/office station that is perfect for a business traveler. The apartment has cable TV and wireless internet… and ever important for those Washington, DC summers… Central A/C!
Rear patio is furnished and has a grill. The yard is shared with our medium-sized uber-friendly dog. And while she's never in the apartment, we know that not everyone is a dog person. You say the word and she will hang out in the house during your stay.
Several restaurants and bars just a block or 2 away. It’s just a short walk to Eastern Market and Barracks Row shops and restaurants.
We live right upstairs, so if there is anything you need, just let us know.
Hope to see you soon!

We enjoyed meeting Molly and Greg and staying in their clean, comfortable, well located basement apartment . It was just as described in the listing, actually better for the very close proximity of a Metro station and a good grocery store. It was so nice to return to a real home after a busy day of sightseeing in DC.
The wifi worked well, we had a tv in the bedroom and books to research the area. We hope to return next spring and meet the new baby joining sweet Mary Alice and Sally in the happy family.
Thanks Air B&B for a new way to travel. We plan to use the service again in Italy. Erin and John. San Jose, california
I loved the Capitol Hill apartment! Everything was exactly as descibed by the owners and other guests. The proximity to the metro and the near by neighborhood store make this my first choice for any future trips to DC. The amenities provided make the apartment a little home away from home. You would be hard pressed to find hosts more gracious and helpful than Molly and Greg!
We really enjoyed our visit to Washington DC.
We received a warm and friendly welcome from Greg and Molly and communication was easy and trouble free throughout.
Their well presented basement apartment was private, cozy and quiet; the location was excellent - very close to the subway, bus stops and other conveniences. It is even close enough to explore a lot of the city by foot if you enjoy walking.
We had a great first Airbnb experience and are happy to recommend this apartment - everything exactly as described.
Great home away from home! Superb location and super tidy, cozy apartment. Definitely to be highly recommended! Though we didn't meet Molly and Gregory in person, we could easily communicate. We would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone traveling to DC.
We had a great time in Molly and Gregory's garden apartment. There was just the perfect amount of interaction with them, we were welcomed by Molly daughter and staffie on arrival and briefly chatted with Gregory on departure and left to our own devices in between. The whole apartment was well appointed and some thoughtful touches like the discount card for the local supermarket and the metro cards. The supermarket Harris Teeter is arguably the best we ever experienced. We deduced from the visitors book comments that there was on offer more help and assistance if guests needed it . The location was perfect for us: walkable distance to the centre passed some good eating and drinking joints around 8th and close to the metro for quick returns later in the day. We arrived the day the US Govt closed down so many of the things we wanted to visit (Smithsonian, Lincoln) were closed. Worth another visit is the Newseum which was open, we only went there on our last day and could have spent another day there. We will have to return and know where we would like to stay on that next trip.
Highly recommended Clive Gunton
A nice apartment in a great location. Very close to Metro and supermarket. A great range of restaurants within easy walking distance.
The kitchen fittings were very good, and there were also treats such as snacks, breakfast cereals, soft drinks, coffee etc waiting for us. Having an excellent washer and dryer was a real bonus.
Molly and Gregory were great hosts and so friendly. If you want a good place to stay in DC, it would be hard to find something better.
Fantastic apartment clean comfortable and in a brilliant location very close to metro station buses and a Harris Teeter supermarket that sells everything including fab takeout foods. Little extras provided by the hosts including rechargeable metro smartrip cards, cans of soda and crisps very welcome. As Brits visiting DC for the first time it was lovely to have somewhere like this to come back to each evening to relax and chill out after a full day sightseeing. Very good wifi also provided, and washer/dryer to do laundry during the stay if wanted. Molly and Gregory were very friendly and keen to make sure we had everything we needed without interfering. Molly also very helpful before our visit replying promptly to several requests for info to help us plan our trip, transfer from Dulles airport etc. A great first experience using AirBNB will certainly use again and would fully recommend this property and AirBNB to others.
Molly and Gregory were completely hospitable and understanding to our unique situation. They were both readily available and checked in on us numerous times. We would recommend their place for its easy access to Harris Teeter, Eastern Market, and the metro. In fact, we hope to stay again soon when we are back in the area!
This is a cute little basement apartment in an excellent location. It was less than a block to the metro and a grocery store (note to those not from this area - the grocery store is called Harris Teeter which really threw us for a minute *grin*). There was also a pizza place directly across the road. The metro made it very easy to get around, especially to the National Mall area where we spent almost all our time.
All in all, we'd definitely stay here again and would recommend to others!
Great spot to access everything Washington has to offer.
Molly and Greg left us snacks and sodas as well as the use of a discount card for the nearby supermarket which saved us a lot of money.
Metro passes were also there for us to use which can save you $5 PP.
Only a $10 cab ride o Union Station too.
Really great overall.
