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.
We assume our guest are courteous. We do, however, collect a $150 security deposit that is promptly returned via Air BNB after your visit is complete. No smoking inside the apartment.
Kitchen island/breakfast nook plus a separate dining table to accomodate home made meals or take out!
Crystal war die Erste zu der wir Kontakt zu airbnb hatten. Wir wurden sehr herzlich aufgenommen und unsere Buchung sofort akzeptiert! Zur Vorbereitung unserer Reise hatte Chrystal uns sehr informative emails über die Wohnung , die Umgebung und was man unternehmen kann, geschickt. Auch das Parken vor dem Haus, war mit ihrem vorbereiteten Parkausweis sehr komfortabel und es gab vorbereite gekühlte Getränke!
We absolutely loved staying here. It was our 6th airbnb on our college tour summer vacation and our last stop before returning home. We couldn't be happier ending our road trip with our 4-night stay in their lovely apartment. It was cheery, well-equipped, well-supplied, and in a very convenient location. There was a binder with clear instructions, travel tips, reusable metro cards, and more. Crystal was a terrific host!
Excellent, what a great experience. All the little details like the information folder with places to see & restaurants was awesome. Very clean, spacious & comfortable what more could you ask for. Also great location. Thanks to Crystal & her family. We highly recommended.
Nous sommes restés 4 nuits dans cet appartement avec nos 3 enfants ados. L'appartement est encore mieux que sur les photos !!! Crystal et Jon ont su être accueillants tout en restant très discrets. Ils ont été très arrangeants sur notre heure d'arrivée. L'appartement est extrêmement propre, bien agencé, et très bien équipé. Très proche d'un supermarché et du métro, bref, l'endroit rêvé pour découvrir en toute sérénité Washington.
Merci Crystal & Jon pour ce super séjour !!!
We had a great time exploring Washington DC from this very comfortable appartement. It's so nice to have a spacious, well equiped en quiet place to come home to while traveling with three young children. Thank you again Crystal and family!

What a wonderful first time experience in DC for my 3 young boys! Crystal and family were amazing! The apartment is perfectly located, is clean, spacious and beautifully decorated! Crystal went above and beyond giving us recommendations for activities for the kids, recommended supermarkets and restaurants and was even thoughtful enough to have the metro map and other important pamphlets at the apartment. We absolutely recommend!
