Our quiet one bedroom apartment is located in the Capitol Hill Historic District just minutes away from iconic DC sights such as the Library of Congress and the US Capitol.
Convenient Capitol Hill location near Eastern Market Metro (Blue/Orange lines) and convenient to Library of Congress, US Capitol, Congressional Offices, the Smithsonian and the National Mall. Many restaurants, shops, parks, food stores and cafes on nearby Barracks Row and H Street corridor, including historic Eastern Market.
My neighborhood enjoys many young families as well as homes to senators, congressional representatives and professionals.
The one-bedroom apartment is separate from my living quarters and has a private entrance, an open front room with living and dining areas, a new flat screen TV with DISH 200 satellite package and DVD player, a large bedroom with queen-size bed and double closet. There is a galley kitchen with all the amenities, a full size sofa bed, separate laundry room and wireless Internet.
Parking is on-street and 90% of the time I'm able to find a spot outside the front door. If you request it, I can provide you a visitor's parking pass if you are planning to leave your car on the street more than 2 hours at a time during the day.
There are many grocery stores within 5 minutes walking (you have use of a grocery cart): a Yes Organic Market, a Harris Teeter and a Safeway. A neighborhood convenience market is located just around the corner. Multiple drug stores, dry cleaners, coffee shops are all close by as well. Two gyms, both about a 15-minute walk, have day passes for $15 or $19.
I'll provide you with a Metro SmarTrip card with a few dollars on it. This will save you the time of having to purchase paper fare cards and the $1/trip paper fare card surcharge.
There is a bike-sharing program and a Zip Car parking area within 2 blocks of the apartment.
Other Things to Note
There is a sofa pullout bed that can accommodate 1 extra person.
There is a hair dryer for your convenience.
No smoking on premises. This is a quiet neighborhood, so guests preferring a quiet environment are best-suited. Heating is house-wide, but an electric heater is available for targeted, extra heat.
I booked this basement apartment for my visiting parents. Everything was as listed and they were very pleased with the stay.
Great, cosy apartment, walking distance from main attractions. Louise was an amazing host, very welcoming and helpful. All the amenities included enhanced our stay. Highly recommend.
Tina's room is very cozy and clean. Full of art pieces. The neighborhood is very safe with tons of great restaurants! Tina is super friendly, always be ready to help us! We totally enjoyed staying there!
This is a well appointed little apartment in close proximity to the National Mall and Eastern Market. Louise has thought of everything you need to have a comfortable stay from guidebooks, maps and Metro Smart cards to coffee in the cupboard and a beer in the fridge. The house and surrounding neighborhood were built at the turn of the century so the walk to the Metro is full of Victorian townhouses. It's quite charming and it truly is a wonderfully authentic DC experience. Highly recommend.
Louise's apartment is lovely! She has used the space well giving it a very nice feel. It has all I needed and was in a charming location. Would stay again!
Charming Host, location and property. Exactly as described and we had no problems except when we had to leave! I will certainly be staying at Louise's place again if I am back in DC. Thanks Louise.
Louise was prompt in her response to my initial inquiry. And really helpful from the get go. My partner and I were coming into DC for business and the apartment was a really great find. It was quite and comfortable, which allowed us to work rather diligently during our stay. Located close to the metro for an easy ride into downtown DC.
