Photos and Description of this Capitol Hill holiday apartment

Luxury Capitol Hill/Eastern Market Rental - Steps 2 Metro/Restaurants/Groceries

Featured on the 2016 Capitol Hill Home and Garden Tour and located on a historic street, this 2BR luxury English basement sleeps 6 with room to spare. Newly renovated with all the amenities: WiFi, 63" TV, W/D, incredible outdoor space and much more!

Parking Permit available!

The space

Location is everything! The apartment is located in the historic Eastern market neighborhood in the heart of Capitol Hill. The home is on a beautiful tree lined street overlooked by the nations congressional buildings just 7 blocks away!

Sleep a family or group of 6 with plenty of space to relax; The master bedroom has a Queen bed, the second smaller bedroom also has a Queen bed and there is a sofa bed in the living space. Our apartment is a great home base after a long day walking the monuments and Museums - kick back and enjoy a movie on the 63" TV screen!

You are also in strolling distance to some of the City`s best restaurants and so most of our guests eat out a lot during their stay!

Guest access:

Access to the basement is separate from the main house (via the side yard) so you can come and go as you please.

Interaction with guests:

We are here if you need us! We manage several listings in DC and we work hard to make sure you have everything you need for your stay.

The neighborhood:

This apartment has a Walk Score® of 91/100! See Airbnb pictures of Capitol Hill here: https://www.airbnb.com/locations/washington-dc/capitol-hill

Getting around:

The location is perfect for walking to everything; public transportation, food and sights!

You are 2 blocks from the Eastern Market Metro and can easily rent bikes via City Bikes and Capitol Bikeshare. The home is in walking distance to the Capitol, Supreme Court, Libraries of Congress, grocery stores, Eastern Market, and dozens of restaurants!

If you are driving, it has incredibly easy access to/from the highway and we can provide a parking permit for your stay!

For grocery stores there are 3 within walking distance

1) Yes Organic Market 2 blocks away; 2) Harris Teeter 7 blocks away; and 3) Safeway 10 blocks away. CVS, Starbucks, and Dunkin` Donuts are all within 5 minutes walking distance.

Other things to note:

Please inquire first if your check-in is within 48 hours of your arrival dates!

This is an older house with the owner living upstairs so you might hear him or his children occasionally. White noise machines are provided for your convenience.

This apartment does not have a full kitchen. It`s perfect for vacations where you want breakfast before you head out for the day and then for drinks or light meals in the evening. There is a European style refrigerator, microwave oven, and all all the other small appliances you need.

If you want to stay in for dinner, there are literally 100`s of delivery options from which to choose or, with the owner`s permission, make a meal on the gas grill on the patio!

- Gas grill use available with advanced permission.

- Back yard use allowed when owner is not using or ask you to join him for a drink!

- This is a row house in a quiet neighborhood. Respect the neighbors.

- Secure or do not leave valuables outside of apartment. It is in the city and crime, while rare, does occur.

- The home is over 100 years old! Be gentle on it, especially the plumbing.

We do have a parking permit available if requested in advance. This allows you to park on the street but doesn`t guarantee a space. Normally you can find parking in the surrounding streets. The permit must be used at all times to avoid getting ticketed (even for the shortest period of time!)

We insist on a $50 an hour penalty for unannounced late checkout. We host upwards of 30 homes so it can be very problematic if not pre-arranged.

Great place to stay in DC!

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 adults and the place was well suited for our group. The place was neat and clean and well furnished. The kitchen was really a kitchenette and small. However, we did not plan to cook. The place was close to the Metro stop at Eastern Market, a real plus as we planned to use public transit. The Eastern Market area has lots of restaurants and bake shops and we enjoyed many of them. The owner was responsive to our emails before arriving. We would rent this place again! Karen

Very nice property in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from 6 nights at this G street property. We were very pleased with the choice. It really had a lot of room and was very functional and nicely renovated. We choose this over a hotel that was a lot more expensive and were very glad we did. The neighborhood is incredible. Beautifully townhouses, parks and tree lined streets. Staying here made us feel like locals for a few days. Lots of excellent restaurants, close to the Easter Metro stop and very easy to catch an Uber. Only issue some may have is you do hear some noise from upstairs, as the owners live there. This was not an issue for us at all, but it may bother some. We could not have been more pleased with this stay.

Clean, Convenient and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This rental is absolutely perfect. The beds and clean and comfortable. The location is ideal, just a few blocks from the metro station and an easy walk to the Capitol. The neighborhood is quiet and feels safe, and the owner is very friendly. It was a perfect base for me and the parents (60+) with easy access to the sights. Also, the parents loved the Sizzling Express restaurant, which is about 1/2 mile walk. I would definitely stay here again.

Great hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

Great location, convienient to the metro, markets & terrific restaurants. The apartment was very nice & clean. While there was an issue the gigantic TV, the on-site owner went out of his way to make sure the guys could watch college football. Comfortable beds, & spacious living area. It was more than enough room for two couples. We definitely put the washer & dryer to work. The only drawback was that we did not stay longer!

Everything was exactly as described on the website. Location was great. Metro was an easy walk even with kids. Park nearby was great to let them run and play. Loved visiting the Eastern Market over the weekend.
