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).
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 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.
Disclosure: A family 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, but parking is contentious. Off street parking can be arranged at no additional cost. We are perfectly located for a unique and fun visit to our nation's capital!
Welcome to our nations Capitol!
Please do not dispose female products in the toilet. It causes plumbing problems. Thank you.
I found this apartment triple perfect. Perfect location for quickly getting to the metro, grocery store and great restaurants. It is well desinged, well equiped, clean and roomy. I found Desiree very organized and helpful throuhout the stay. I am very glad I found this apartment.
Desiree is a wonderful host and her place is amazing. If anything the pictures dont do it justice, very stylish/great decor. Example, there are heated tile floors through the apartment, which was awesome. Clean, secure, great location. Its basically behind a grocery store and around the corner from the Metro.
Desiree goes out of her to make you feel welcome and is very responsive.
So glad I stayed there, will absolutely stay there again.
Desiree is the best host ever. She has a great apartment. My friends and I spent 6 nights there. Everything is perfect. Desiree did everything she could to get us feel comfortable. You definitely don't want to miss it.
We had a wonderful stay in this apartment during our time in DC. Desiree did a wonderful job communicating with us every step of the way and answering all the questions we had. Plus, when you arrive at the apartment, she has a binder of all kinds of information you will need to get around. She is very good at the details.
The apartment was just as advertised. The bed was very comfortable and everything was very clean. The neighborhood was fine. We never felt unsafe. It was really convenient that the apartment is only about a five minute walk to the closest metro or a twenty minute walk to the Capitol.
We were very pleased with our stay and would recommend her apartment.
What a wonderful place to stay while visiting DC. Great bed, kitchen, location and host! It was much nicer than many hotels that I've stayed in and the kitchen was a delight.
Within walking distance of two Metro stations, it's easy to get around or walk down to the Barracks Row area for dinner.
Desiree was very prompt with responses to any questions that we had both before and during our stay.
Es war ein sehr gelungener Aufenthalt in Washington. Desiree hat uns zu jeder Zeit Ihre Hilfe angeboten, die wir auch dankend angenommen haben. Sogar einen Parkausweis für unser gemietetes Auto wurde uns organisiert. In diesem Appartment ist alles, was man so benötigt und es ist vor allem auch sauber und gepflegt. Die Lage ist einfach optimal zum erkunden von Washington. Vielen Dank für alles!
The apartment was very nice and very close to the Metro. It had ample amenities and was spotless clean. We enjoyed our stay there. Six stars out of Six :D Awesome!
I have lived on Capitol Hill since 2001 and love my neighborhood. I am fortunate to live and work in the nations Capitol. DC attracts very intersted people from alll over the world which makes it an exciting place to live. I think DC is one of the more beautiful cities in the world filled with history and culture. I enjoy walking to different resturants, museums, and experiencing the endless events the city has to offer. I hope you too will enjoy the nations Capitol as much as I do!
