Photos and Description of this Southeast Washington holiday house

3 Bedroom with bath for each bedroom.

If you want to tour DC by bicycle there is a rental station 1/2 block from this vacation rental, which is only 3 blocks from the US Capitol and the beginning of the National Mall.

The Flat at Library Court is a rowhouse in the historic district with a completely renovated interior and all new furnishings decorated with Washington D.C. flair. You’ll enjoy expansive views of the stately Library of Congress,.. which is directly across the street. The house backs to Library Court, a 300 year old historic cobblestone street built in the days of horse-drawn buggies.

Why you can’t beat our location: Capitol Hill is a historic residential neighborhood that stretches from the U.S. Capitol, and Pennsylvania Ave, the main corridor, emanates from the Capitol beginning at 2nd Street. We are one block away on 3rd St – the first residential block from the Capitol. The further you get (4th Street, 5th, 6th and so on), the less desirable and less safe the areas become, and the longer your walk to the sites. This is truly as good and as close as it gets! Don’t talk yourself into staying blocks away…

• 1 Block or Less: U.S. Supreme Court, Library of Congress (across the street), Folger (Shakespeare) Theatre

• Within 2 to 3 blocks: U.S. Capitol, U.S. Capitol Visitor Center, Cannon House Office Building, Capitol Mall, U.S. Botanical Garden, South Capital Metro station.

• Tour Bus: The Circulator Tour Bus picks up one block away but most of what you’ll want to see is within a short walk.

• Dining 1 Block or Less: We the Pizza; Good Stuff Eatery (President Obama’s favorite hamburger), Cosi (sandwiches, soups and salads), Starbucks, Sonoma Restaurant and Wine Bar, Hunan Dynasty, Hawk N Dove; Capitol Hill Liquor and Deli

• Stores 1-2 Blocks: Corner Market Grocery Store, Grubb’s Care Pharmacy, Gandel’s Liquor, Riverby Books.

The Courtyard Apartment

The Courtyard Apartment of the Flat at Library Court is a two story unit with 3 bedrooms and 3 ½ bathrooms, a private courtyard and expansive views of the stately Library of Congress. The kitchen is fully stocked and the unit has wi-fi, cable TV and central air conditioning/heat.

• Main Level: On the main level, you’ll find an expansive kitchen/great room with views of the Library of Congress. The kitchen is fully equipped and has a breakfast bar and large dining table and it opens to the living room with a sleeper sofa and flat screen TV. Behind the great room is a half bathroom, washer and drier, and a master suite with a king size bed and full bathroom, including a tub. The hallway provides access to the private courtyard for relaxation after a busy day of touring the Capitol and quiet al fresco dining; it backs to the historic cobblestone court.

• Lower Level: On the lower level, there are two bedrooms and two full bathrooms: one bedroom has a queen size bed and its own bathroom and the third bedroom has bunk beds single/over double.


Capitol Hill is the largest historic residential neighborhood in Washington D.C., stretching easterly in front of the United States Capitol along wide avenues. It is one of the oldest residential communities in Washington D.C.

As a geographic feature, Capitol Hill rises near the center of the District of Columbia and extends eastward. The Capitol Hill neighborhood today straddles two quadrants of the city, Southeast and Northeast, and a large portion is now designated as the Capitol Hill historic district. The name Capitol Hill is often used to refer to both the historic district and to the larger neighborhood around it.

Capitol Hill's landmarks include not only the United States Capitol, but also the Senate and House office buildings, the Supreme Court building, the Library of Congress, the Marine Barracks, the Washington Navy Yard, and Congressional Cemetery.

The main non-residential corridor of Capitol Hill is Pennsylvania Avenue, a lively commercial street with shops, restaurants and bars. Eastern Market is an 1873 public market on 7th Street SE, where vendors sell fresh meat and produce in indoor stalls and at outdoor farmers' stands. It is also the site of an outdoor flea market every weekend. Please look at our other properties 3550803, 913567 & 4015008 with in Capitol Hill area.

If available, we can provide parking for 1 vehicle at Union Station which is 5 blocks from this rental.

Please check our other properties at 913567, 3550803 & 4015008 in Capitol Hill with you have a question about our rental please don't hesitate to call Bob Finn at 623-297-8193. I sometimes call the person inquiring about our rental, but am finding that lots of people don't answer their phones these days. I find that it is some times easier to communicate in a phone conversation then it is by email. We want to make sure there is no misunderstanding about the location of our rentals and it amenities. Parking is limited in DC so if you are driving to DC you might want to talk with Bob about some parking solutions.

Clean, comfortable, good location for families.

  • 4 of 5

Our family of three adults and one child stayed here for 5 days. We are used to staying in very deluxe hotels, so wanted an upscale townhouse to share with our family. I would say this was more than adequate, but visitors should be aware of a few issues. One which could be easily improved is the lack of mirrors. The bathrooms are extremely tiny, and the only mirrors in the whole house are the bathroom mirrors above the sinks. A full length mirror in each bedroom would allow more than one person to dress at the same time!

It's been mentioned before that the noise from the upper apartment is a problem. Every footstep echoes in the master bedroom from the unit above - one morning at 5:00 AM! Maybe some rugs would help.

The king bed in the master is very comfortable, but the queen and bunks were described as lumpy. I personally didn't check them out. It was ok for our family, but if couples are traveling together, be aware the two bedrooms downstairs are very small and not really "equal" to the master.

The location is nice, and we took UBER everywhere with no problem. Many main sights and monuments are still a bit far to be considered within walking distance.

We checked in with no problems, and found the unit clean and ready when we arrived from California.

For an extended stay in DC with family, this was well appointed and with a few improvements could be a very comfortable base.

A pleasant time in Capitol Hill

  • 5 of 5

Housed 3 artists in this rental while they rehearsed for a weekend performance. Home was comfortable and spacious enough for all of the guests. The owner event allowed them to rehearse in the space. It made my job easier and the musicians enjoyed living and working there. I would definitely rent this home again in the future.

Fabulous stay in the heart of it all!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of four friends found our 'Capitol Hill' home-away-from-home to be perfect in every way. Comfortable, clean, convenient and w/an eye to surpassing all of our expectations. Two levels assure everyone has room to relax and the common areas, especially the huge dining table, encourage coming together. TV's in every bedroom, a small outside space for morning coffee (Keurig Kcups provided, thank you very much. No need to run out and get coffee first thing.) Full kitchen, complete w/all the appliances, utensils, and pans you could ask for. Beautifully decorated. Lots of extra towels and face cloths, as well as the softest sheets and comforters ever! We successfully navigated Uber for the first time w/out any problems, thanks to your emailed 'transportation guides'. An easy walk to local restaurants and grocery (basic foods) stores. I could go on and on, but we just can't say enough good things about this place!!! We're already looking forward to our next stay here!

Perfect location to see the city

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough about how wonderful the property is and how central to everything it is located. We took an Uber to and from the airport and used a 7 day short hop metro pass the entire rental car needed...and we saw everything. We stayed in flat 1. It was very clean and comfortable. Bob was great with suggestions and information. I would recommend this to anyone thinking about visiting DC for the week. I have already recommended the property to several friends.

This flat was convenient to everything! It was beautifully appointed, very clean, very comfortable. Bob had a great deal of information available to help us negotiate our stay in DC. If we return, we will come back to this flat again.

Wonderful location and Remodeled Property

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Capitol Hill rowhome; the location is perfect for accessing Library of Congress, Capitol and the National Mall, to name just a few. As some have noted the Capitol South metro is also not far away. The home has been beautifully remodeled and, in our opinion, is larger than it appears in photos. 3 1/2 baths is a very nice feature of the home; kitchen is well appointed with other thoughtful touches. Very clean as well. We found parking right in front of the home, mid-August, on a weekend night, but did not have the car during weekdays. There is a small patio off the back of the unit and a grill (did not use) which would be very nice on cooler evenings. There are shops and a few restaurants within one block of the home; Starbucks, Pret a Manger, Good Stuff Eatery, pizza, etc. We had three generations staying in the home and all thoroughly enjoyed it. Was nice that master suite was on the first floor. There are some steps into the home and then full staircase to the basement bedrooms, noting for accessibility. Highly recommend for location and amenities. Bob also provides much helpful information in advance; excellent to work with.
