The Space

(Not shared space) Full use of a private and separate 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom fully furnished and equipped apartment just one block from the blue and orange line metro and grocery store and within a quick 6 block walk (approx 10 minute walk) to Eastern Market, award winning restaurants, bars, and parks. The apartment is a 2 metro stop or a leisurely 15-20 minute walk to the US Capitol, the Supreme Court, the Library of Congress, and the National Botanical Gardens. Additionally, it is located in walking distance to The Yards Park and the National's Stadium. The Smithsonian and the most of the DC monuments are within 4-6 metro stops on the same metro line (blue and orange).

Apartment details:
This is a separate 2BR, 2BA sunny English garden apartment in our home with its own private front patio. Inviting, serene, renovated and spacious with all the amenities that you need for your stay: fully equipped kitchen, flat screen TV with Direct TV and DVD in the living room, washer and dryer, and separate dining area. The apartment features a front bedroom that has a full size bed and a back bedroom that hosts a queen size bed, bamboo floors, tasteful decor, upscale linens, and a festive, inviting, shared outdoor space. The layout is such that the bedrooms and baths are located on opposite sides of the living space to maximize privacy for guests. A portable twin bed is available upon request.

Fun Stuff:
We are only 1 block away from Capitol Bike Share - it's a fun and easy way to get around DC - and available for daily rentals at $7 a day. Very popular with locals and tourists alike. We also have multiple zip cars with in a 1-2 block radius. The Yards Park is a great place to play and picnic and is not well known among tourists. It hosts weekly outdoor movies (on Thursdays) in the summer and weekly (on Fridays) live music events from May - August. Eastern Market, 6 blocks away - an easy walk, is a famous institution. It is open 6 days a week as a historic market that hosts a baker, a fishmonger, a butcher, a florist, a grocer among other shops, but on the weekends, it hosts an outdoor farmers market, a huge flea market, and an artist's market - an amazing place to explore, people watch, and venue to discover great finds, great foods, and great non-traditional souvenirs and gifts. We are also within biking, jogging, metro, or walking distance from the award winning Results Gym, Capitol Hill that is in a converted historic school. If you want to keep your workout routine while on vacation or on an extended stay, access can be arranged at cost. Each day visit there is $15. The gym has multiple classes, award winning locker rooms with dry and wet sauna and jacuzzi, a rock-climbing wall, extensive free weights and machines, and basket ball and racket ball courts.

Our family of 4 lives in the unit above and though well insulated, some noise is audible between floors (not voices or music but heavy footsteps). Metro access is so easy, Regan International Airport - a fast cab ride or metro ride away. We can arrange off-street parking. We are perfectly located for a unique and fun visit to our nation's capital!

Please note that the lack of reviews is due to the fact that many of our guests stay for extended periods - up to 2 months and through other venues. We are exactly as pictured, one block to 2 metro lines, and well located on Capitol Hill.
