About this listing
Stay in a beautifully appointed private basement suite in the center of historic Capitol Hill--one of DC's most vibrant neighborhoods. Our 1890 built home is steps to the metro, Eastern Market and some of DC's best restaurants on Barrack's Row.
Our home, located on a quiet street in the center of historic Capitol Hill--one of DC’s most vibrant neighborhoods--offers contemporary comforts in a quintessentially classic "Washingtonian" setting.
We have lovingly decorated our english basement apartment with designer furniture, carpets, antiques and contemporary art collected from our travels, all set against the warmth and old world charm of the home's original exposed brick walls.
The private bedroom suite includes a queen size bed, large living room area and breakfast nook. Enjoy free high speed internet access, a Sonos music system and a 50" flat screen TV with cable, premium movie channels, netflix, tivo and amazon on demand.
PLEASE NOTE: The bathroom is shared with our housekeeper who only uses it early in the morning to take a shower. Throughout the rest of the day the entire apartment is private and you are unlikely to see our housekeeper unless you want anything. (Our housekeeper stays in the smaller second bedroom in the back of the unit which has its own separate entrance).
We live in the upstairs portion of the house. You have a private entrance to your suite that is located in the English basement, so feel free to come and go as you please. You also will have full use of the kitchen.
Interaction with Guests
We love to meet our guests and offer tips on Washington. If we're here when you arrive, we will greet you. Our housekeeper, Sy, has been with our family for years and is also available to help with anything you might need.
Staying in Eastern Market is all about easy access! We are less than 1 mile from the Mall, Smithsonian and historic monuments of Washington DC. Right behind our home you will find some of DC’s finest restaurants on popular Barrack's Row (including the award winning Rose’s Luxury). We also have dry cleaners, laundry, pharmacy and grocery stores all within a 1-2 block radius. On the weekends, Eastern Market, just two blocks up the street, is a popular destination for its vibrant indoor and outdoor market.
We are a two minute (half block) walk to the Eastern Market Metro station. For those who prefer to drive, our location in SE Washington provides easy access to most areas of the city and surrounding Virginia and Maryland as we are within a half mile of the highway. There is street parking available throughout our neighborhood. We can provide you with a guest parking permit.
Other Things to Note
Having traveled extensively ourselves, we appreciate how important it is to get an 'insiders' perspective to a city and are happy to share our favorite places to visit, eat, shop and play. Our welcome guide is available to you upon arrival containing much of that information.
