Street parking is plentiful in the neighborhood. **I will provide a parking pass if you have a car and plan on staying for a while. Parking restrictions are in effect Monday through Saturday.

After Georgetown to the west, Capitol Hill is Washington's oldest neighborhood. In its earliest days, most of the residents were members of Congress who lived in boarding houses and dormitories surrounding the Capitol. As the neighborhood evolved, row houses replaced boarding houses and the Hill began to grow as a neighborhood filled with families, as well as Washington's who's who. As you walk around this stately neighborhood, don't be surprised if you see faces you've seen in the news. A number of senators and representatives make their home on the Hill.

In addition to the U.S. Capitol, the Hill includes other significant American landmarks such as the U.S. Supreme Court, the Library of Congress, the Folger Shakespeare Library, Union Station, the U.S. Marine Corps Barracks, the Washington Naval Yard, Congressional Cemetery, Lincoln Park, and the Eastern Market. All of these sights are within easy walking distance and most are Metro-accessible. Just down the hill from the Capitol is the National Mall with all of the monuments and memorials iconic to Washington, as well as more than 10 museums and galleries of art and artifacts.

To the east of the Capitol is the Eastern Market—one of the only remaining merchant markets left in Washington. While the market bustles during the week, it is on the weekends that it acquires its character and charm as residents from all over the city and visitors from all over the world come to the market to enjoy breakfast; purchase fresh meats, produce, and breads; stroll through the adjacent flea market; and browse the latest art and jewelry crafted by local artists and artisans.

During the spring and summer months, a visit to the U.S. Marine Corps Barracks at 8th and I Streets SE will allow you to see the Marine Corps Silent Drill Team in action. This 24-man rifle platoon performs precision maneuvers with their 10.5 lb M-1 Garand rifles with fixed bayonets.

Over at the U.S. Capitol, the newly opened visitor's center allows visitors to experience the Capitol from the ground up. The center features several state statues in Emancipation Hall and a museum that chronicles the history of the U.S. Capitol from its cornerstone laying in 1789 by George Washington to the present day. Tickets for the Senate and House galleries are available here.

The Library of Congress' Jefferson Building, just across the street from the Capitol, is the world's largest repository of books and media in the world. The building is open to the public and the Renaissance and classical art are breathtaking.

These and other sites make staying on Capitol Hill a must if you're visiting Washington on business or for pleasure.

About Allen

The redhead next to me is my wife Ana.

We have 2 daughters who are grown and are on their own ( not really, if you are a parent you know) and a 14 pound Schnoodle ( he thinks he is a giant). We have been living in the DC metro area for about 36 years and absolutely love it. Washington DC is a beautiful city, it really is and for people coming here to spend their vacations or attend conferences, weddings, funerals (The Arlington Cemetery), graduations, sight seeing, festivals etc. etc. there isn't any city that offers so much.

I manage the properties and Ana tells me what to do (!!!) We are a great team and enjoy doing what we do.

Allen purchased this condo in 1987

Why Allen chose Washington DC

This is a fully furnished apartment, very close to metro and the grocery store. Walking distance to the major sites in DC.

Comfortable and convenient

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was located in an area in the process of gentrifying. Sometimes loud talking and heavy walking is evident from the upstairs unit. It is conventint to the Metro and surprisingly good resturants a few blocks to the east.

Don't miss this place!

  • 5 of 5

My son and I started talking about a Spring Break trip to DC in January 2017. We don't like staying in hotels; we like a place with a kitchen, W/D and separate sleeping areas. I was so excited to find such an economical place on VRBO.

I have been burned by rentals on VRBO so I was hesitant to look here and book here. THIS PLACE IS AMAZING AND THE OWNER IS AWESOME. You need not worry about booking here. Allen is very responsive and helpful. The rates are MORE than competitive and he refunded our damage deposit within a week.

The apartment is less than a block from a grocery store and right at a block from a metro station. It is super clean and well-stocked. He has a parking spot in the back which came in handy after I got a ticket for parking on the street. ;)

My only recommendation would be for anti-slip help in the tub / shower. It is super slippery. Some decals or a grab bar would be beneficial.

Thanks to Allen and this great apartment. We had a great vacation and I highly recommend it. Can't wait to come back again!

Great place

  • 5 of 5

Great place for our family of four. 2 blocks from metro which we walked to everyday. Around the corner from Harris Teeter. We loved being able to cook in our room and having the comfort of being "home".

Happy

  • 5 of 5

We were there for the inauguration, and it was very convenient to have the Metro and a grocery store so near by. The apt. was clean and having the car in the back was great. We really recommend it and we hope to be able to stay there again next time we are in town.
