About Meaghan Chada

We are a military family of four that has called DC home for more than 10 years. Although originally from Chicago and California we consider ourselves true Washingtonians and are excited to share the city and our property with you!

Meaghan Chada purchased this house in 2001

Why Meaghan Chada chose Washington DC

We originally rented this property but quickly decided to purchase it because of the perfect location and proximity to everything we love in the District. We were pleased that it was on a quiet residential street, but at the same time located only steps from our favorite sights, restaurants, and the convenient Metro system. This was the first house we purchased as a married couple and our kids loved spending their early years here.

What makes this house unique

This house perfectly combines a warm neighborhood feel with the excitement and energy of the city. The location is simply ideal and offers the best of everything.

Amazing Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at Shawn and Meaghan's place on Capitol Hill. The location is absolutely the best around. It's just a short walk to the US Capitol Building, Smithsonian Museums and the Metro Station is just around the corner. We felt like we were in the heart of it all. The home itself is beautiful -- stylish furnishings, an updated kitchen, super-comfortable bedding, and very clean. There was plenty of space for our family to spread out. We will definitely be staying here on our next visit to DC.

Great Location!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a find! My husband has an office in DC and is there several times a month and I join him occasionally. We recently took my sister and her son to celebrate his graduation from high school. This was a perfect location for our group. We were able to spread out and rest after long days of sightseeing. My sister had a car and the owners made sure we had a parking permit for the neighborhood. It could not have been easier! We are very familiar with D.C. and have decided that this was a perfect location...We walked over to the capital one night and enjoyed the sunset while listening to the Armed Forces band.

It was so nice to have such a well stocked unit...we use VRBO a lot and this isn't always the case. We might have found our new favorite place to stay in DC!

Close to Capitol and all sights of DC

  • 5 of 5

Great place and location! Quaint place and great experience with owner. The only issue we had was the shower and water on the floor. Slippery. But worth it!

Perfect place in the heart of the Capitol!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time in D.C. ... made even better staying at 408 S Capitol!!! A moments walk to the Capitol Building, this home was immaculate and very well appointed. Comfortable beds & a superb A/C made for great sleeping. Great shower too! The owners were very responsive and helpful ... there's a wonderful "Welcome" binder with great info that helped make our siteseeing seamless.

2 tips - (1) Bring good walking shoes! D.C. Is an easily walk-able city but the right footwear makes all the difference ... trust me (ow!). (2) Book tours before you come. The Monuments by Moonlight tour on Old Tiwn Trolley was the highlight of our trip!!! We also arranged a tour of the Capitol and (luckily) of the East Wing of the White House through our local US representative's office months before our trip ... both were wonderful!!

All-in-all ... we had an amazing trip and would highly recommend 408 S Capitol SE and it's wonderful owners. I travelled with my husband, our two kids (10 & 12) and my parents (ageless!). We all loved the trip & home, and hope to be back, for sure!

Great location and great house.

  • 5 of 5

It was perfect for my wife and I with our two teenagers. We walk to the museums if we wanted or Uber and Lyft were only $5 to $7.
