Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday townhome in Capitol Hill - 724a

Townhome, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

If you need more than 3 bedrooms you can also rent the lower unit which is a full one bedroom apartment accommodating 4 guests.

Located in the historic Capitol Hill neighborhood, this unit features three bedrooms and 2 bathrooms one with a shower and the other with a whirlpool. This house can comfortably accommodate a family of eight. The property situated within walking distance of the U.S. Capitol and the National Mall—is near the center of the Federal City and offers amenities for a comfortable and memorable stay in one of Washington's oldest and most sought-after neighborhoods. Potomac Metro Station is located around the corner from the property.

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 townhome in 1987

Good property in DC

  • 4 out of 5
This is a really good option for DC with one exception, the neighborhood. The location is GREAT, close to the Capitol, short walk to the metro, grocery around the corner, however, the Potomac Gardens apartment project is literally right across the street. We spoke to the owner of the deli around the corner, Mangialardo & Sons (which is awesome btw) and he cautioned us to "be careful at night because it gets rough". So we were a little concerned at first, but in the end became really comfortable there and had no issues, other than a loud late night argument. So if you are skittish about the neighborhood this might not be the place.

Other than that this place is really good. Allen is fantastic and highly responsive. The property is quite old, and the wood floors are creaky, but we found that charming. The three bedrooms upstairs are very comfortable and the futon in the living room is passable if you need a fourth bed for a short stay.

The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to cook.

The internet speed is decent if you are close to the router, but does not work in every room.

The living room is a little small for a family of 5, but we made due with the seating available.

The back yard did need some attention. The picture on Homeaway of the outside is not accurate as of August 2014. The back yard is overgrown with weeds and needs to be maintained, but you can still sit out there.

Overall we had a great stay once we got comfortable with the neighborhood.

Owner's Response: Peter and his family were great guests. He is a world traveler and knows what he is talking about. We changed the router to a new and more powerful one ( the old one was a G and the new one is an N model with 2 high speed wireless bands). We have had very heavy rains this year and things grow everywhere but we are trimming the back yard. The neighborhood is great and we have been here for over 25 years without a single problem. Thank you Pete for pointing them out.

Great location, private, and clean.

  • 5 out of 5
House was very clean. Rooms good size, lots of closet space. Plenty of towels. Bonus is the washer and dryer on the premises. The Metro is only a 5 min walk and 8th Street is filled with amazing and delicious restaurants (10 min walk). Allen is very personable and quickly responds to any questions and requests. Our family definitely enjoyed our stay in DC and would gladly stay in Allen's house on Capitol Hill in the future.

Great property!

  • 5 out of 5
My family and I love this property. Our first stay there was last August and we enjoyed it so much we went back again this year. The property is very well kept, it is around the corner from a grocery store, a block and a half away from a metro station and 2 blocks away from restaurants and shopping. Very convenient! Allen is helpful with anything/everything and available at any time. We plan to return to this property in the future.

Great Accomodations!

  • 5 out of 5
Great accommodations and a good location! With easy access to a grocery store, CVS and Metro station we enjoyed a great family vacation. THe apartment accommodated our group of 6 adults and 1 child very well. We enjoyed relaxing in the private backyard while grilling dinner and talking over our fun day of DC sight seeing. The property owner is very accessible and accommodating. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend to others. Enjoy!

Great Stay (Despite Crummy Weather) - Capitol Hill

  • 5 out of 5
Very nice two level house - everything was as described in the listing. Everything was clean.
Location great - two blocks to Potomac Metro stop, less than two blocks to a Harris Teeter grocery store, and a fairly short walk to a "restaurant row" on 8th Street SE.

We were a family group of 5 adults and two children (9 and 10) and had a great stay. We would definitely stay here again and would strongly recommend to friends.

Spring Break... March 2014

  • 3 out of 5
We just got home from a great weeks vacation at this property! I would recommend this property to others but I would like to make a few helpful comments. The property was very clean but a bit smaller and older than expected! We are a family of 5, and for us, staying here was a much better option than renting a hotel room. For us a big draw was the ability to cook some of our own meals, which we did! But having only one frying pan... Made it a bit if a challenge. Also, would have loved it if some more detailed info was available at the property. Perhaps a map of where the grocery store was as we walked twice as far to the Safeway instead if going to the new store right around the corner. Also possibly a list of good places to eat or order food nearby. And posdibly the numbers of relibale car services. We were a bit disappointed at the lack of privacy both in and out of the house.( The window above the mstr door was broken). The house has only one heating system and we had a hard time getting the temperature just right both upstairs and down, but there were small heaters in the closet which helped emensly! But, having only 1 tv was a bit of a bummer. Allan, the ower, was awesome. And each time we called he was very helpful, even letting us store our bags both before and after our reservation. We did have a big snowstorm which shut down the city and it would have been very helpful if a shovel was available at the property. The apartment complex across the street is a bit undesirable but it turned out not to be an issue at all. We realize that every big city has such areas. My kids were afraid to be outside alone but my husband and I felt very comfortable. And, for the price... It was a good value. We enjoyed our trip and can't wait to return!

Owner's Response: Nancy and her family were great. There were challenges with the heating and that was caused by not having the central heating system's fan in ON position but running the ceiling fans all the time. We switched and everything worked. On our welcome letter we give addresses of the local grocery stores and the pharmacies with phone numbers. The snow shovels were in the back of the house. Sometimes a bit of communications goes a long way and we are here to answer any questions you may have. We can't wait to have Nancy and her family back next year or for the summer. "The A/C works great and with ceiling fans in ON position, the temperature will be very pleasant".
