Overview

About the property

As Close as You Can Get to U.S. Capital

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 row house 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 Penthouse Apartment

Up a flight of stairs, you will enter the Penthouse Apartment of the Flat at Library Court. This two story unit has 3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms 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.

DESCRIPTION OF NEIGHBORHOOD:

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.

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, 3526541 & 4015008 in Capitol Hill with homeaway.com.If 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.

Great location....very clean property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience staying in this flat in DC. The beds are very comfortable and the whole place was very clean! The location can't be beat! We walked to the Capitol and Museums one day. There is a local corner market a few blocks away and a Starbucks just down the street. We walked to get coffee every morning. We would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a great D.C. vacation!

Fantastic house! Best Property Manager!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many VRBO properties around the U.S., but have never had such an exceptional property manager as Bob Finn! He is absolutely the best! He is on top of every detail, provides excellent information, and responds quickly to questions. He solved our issue of storing our luggage for a later flight. We greatly appreciate Bob! The house is wonderful! Very nicely decorated, very clean, stocked with many extras, including batteries for toys! Ideal location across from The Library of Congress in a very safe location. Close to restaurants, the Metro, and grocery shopping. We will definitely rent again on our next trip to D.C.

Owner's Response: Thank you for this nice review. It is always good to hear such nice things. Every time I get a good review like this my son, who owns this property, doubles my wages, but I still end up with a 0. It is meeting nice people like this that makes my job so enjoyable.

A wonderful home! Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

I rented this home for a reunion with some former classmates. It was a perfect setting for a get together. The open living/ kitchen area gave us a common area to relax and visit that could accommodate the group of 6 comfortably. It was an easy walk to the metro, the Mall and eating and drinking places. A real bonus was ensuite bathrooms for all of the bedrooms. One bedroom was a little small with little space for suitcases and no place to hang clothes but the other amenities more than made up for it. I would book again.

Location, location, location! Can't beat safe quiet location adjacent to Capital Building and Mall.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six were delighted with the accommodations, well stocked kitchen, 3 comfortable bedrooms and 4 full baths. Restaurants and stores one block away on Pennsylvania Ave a plus. Would highly recommend this unit. Hosts were very helpful.

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

The location of this property was perfect, close to restaurants and right behind Library of Congress. Metro was just a short walk making it very easy to get around.

Loved our nightly walks around the illuminated Capitol building and Supreme Court.

The property was perfect for our family of 6 (including 3 teenagers!). Everything was comfortable & well appointed with anything we needed. We did have groceries delivered the morning after we arrived (I ordered from CA before we left) which was super convenient, but there were also a few corner markets close. The local eateries were delicious, La Bon Cafe, Sonoma, pret a manger& We the Pizza. The neighborhood felt safe. We would easy stay here again and would recommend it to anyone.
