About Alec Smyth
My wife and I are both management consultants who have traveled widely for decades, and have developed a strong sense of what we like in a locale and in accommodations. We actively manage our vacation rentals as a future retirement plan, but we select and prepare them by asking a simple test question -- would we be happy to live in them ourselves?
Alec Smyth purchased this Townhouse in 2010
Why Alec Smyth chose Northeast Washington
We picked this home expressly for vacation rental use, with the hindsight of having lived in this area for close to twenty years. It is just ideally situated with a combination of easy access to the major sites, and quiet once back home.
What makes this Townhouse unique
There is a lot to see in Washington, with over fifty museums, but unfortunately we feature the very longest commutes in the nation. The museums have no parking, which may be a deliberate strategy to reduce the number of cars. Capitol Hill is the area immediately surrounding the US Capitol, and because it is a historical conservation neighborhood of small houses that cannot be altered, it contains almost no hotels. By staying at a home on the Western edge of Capitol Hill, you are closer to the sites than at a hotel, and free from the hassles of commuting because everything is within walking distance. Quite aside from the convenience of the location, both house and neighborhood are charming.

Capitol Hill house
Nice house. Great location. Owner was responsive and easy to communicate with. Close to park (for kids) and easy 10-minute walk to Union Station.
This location is within walking distance to everything that's anything in DC--including grocery stores, coffee and other amenities. We experienced some issues due to extreme and unusual DC weather during out stay, owner responded quickly and efficiently. Property was clean, well-stocked and in very safe neighborhood. Highly recommend
Hidden gem in DC
Easy to get to. Cozy and homey feeling immediately upon entry. Close enough to everything yet far enough away to disappear at the end of day.
Wonderful Location, Property and Experience
The property is well kept and clean, the neighborhood atmosphere is enjoyable and you can’t beat the location. The owner was very helpful. We’d definitely stay again!
The house is located on a quiet friendly street less than half a block from Stanton Park and one block from Restaurant Row, a block of restaurants with tables right on the sidewalk. Capitol Hill is a historical conservation neighborhood of beautifully maintained, charming old houses. It has a small-town feel and a human scale, is cosmopolitan, and has a thriving cultural scene. The residential area closest to Washington's institutions, it is home to a large number of politicians and VIPs.
