Already booked for your dates? Please see our brand new listing Homeaway #3844729.

This is a remodeled Victorian town house with sun filled bay windows. It is on a quiet residential street, yet as centrally located as it gets. The Capitol complex and the Supreme Court are only three blocks away. 'Restaurant Row', a stretch of Massachusetts Avenue with numerous restaurants, is only one block away. The National Mall, Smithsonian Museums, and the Newseum are all within walking distance. You will not need a car. Built in 1890 and renovated in 2010, the house combines historic charm with a modern layout. It has a completely open floor plan on the main level. It is furnished comfortably for a family of four (five if counting a crib) without cramming. Larger families may want to consider a combined rental of this property with the ground floor flat in the same structure (HomeAway #340015). The main house and ground floor flat are totally independent, with separate entrances and mechanical systems.

How Reservations Work:

We recommend using the 'Book it Now' button, which will confirm availability and provide a detailed quote before you reach the screen on which you are asked to commit. We book with the $120 cleaning fee, and the balance is due 30 days before arrival. All payments are self-service, via credit card or e-check using HomeAway's secure payments page, and you do not need to provide us credit card information.

Cancellation Policy: If you have to cancel a reservation, we will return all funds received when cancellation notice is given 30 days or more prior to arrival, or if the cancellation is due to circumstances beyond your control such as a major snowstorm, airline strike, illness, etc.

Arrival and Departure Logistics: Check out time is 11AM, check in time 3PM. This is to allow time for the cleaners if there is a same-day change-over. If either time poses an issue please let us know, as a it is often possible to make alternative arrangements with the cleaners.

We use a code lock, so there is no need to mail or drop off keys, and you can arrive at any time of night.

About Alec Smyth

My wife and I are both management consultants who have traveled widely for decades, and have developed a strong sense of what we like in a locale and in accommodations. We actively manage our vacation rentals as a future retirement plan, but we select and prepare them by asking a simple test question -- would we be happy to live in them ourselves?

Alec Smyth purchased this townhome in 2010

What makes this townhome unique

There is a lot to see in Washington, with over fifty museums, but unfortunately we feature the very longest commutes in the nation. The museums have no parking, which may be a deliberate strategy to reduce the number of cars. Capitol Hill is the area immediately surrounding the US Capitol, and because it is a historical conservation neighborhood of small houses that cannot be altered, it contains almost no hotels. By staying at a home on the Western edge of Capitol Hill, you are closer to the sites than at a hotel, and free from the hassles of commuting because everything is within walking distance. Quite aside from the convenience of the location, both house and neighborhood are charming.

Excellent family accomodation

  • 5 out of 5
A great property in lovely surroundings, close to the Capitol and Union Station. A good amount of space for a family of four, and we really appreciated the grill in the backyard, and the washer dryer, as well as the air-conditioning. Very easy to communicate with Alec.

For us the best supermarket was the Giant on H Street, which was about 15 minutes walk.

BEAUTIFUL, WELL-APPOINTED, GREAT LOCATION....EVERYTHING YOU COULD ASK FOR!

  • 5 out of 5
We just returned home after a wonderful stay in DC in this beautiful row house! This home is everything, and more, as it is described. Everything you need to have a wonderful, home-like, vacation is in this home. Union Station is a short walk from the home. Union Station is a great place to park if you drive into town. Also, you can walk there to catch a bus tour, etc. The Capitol is a short walk as well as is Restaurant Row and a great little, neighborhood supermarket. Another great feature of the home (especially if you arrive into town without a personal vehicle) is that a metro stop is literally steps from the front door, you can catch the metro and go anywhere in the city you wish! Honestly, I could go on and on about this home, it is FABULOUS! Alec is a great host! We loved our visit to DC and will definitely return. It will be our plan at that time to stay in this beautiful home! Thank you for providing such a wonderful place for us to visit. The home is fabulous, the neighborhood is great and the amenities are top-notch! Thanks again, hopefully we will return again, very soon!

Perfect stay

  • 5 out of 5
We chose this place for the location and found the house to be above expectations in decor, comfort and amenities. We enjoyed entertaining friends in the private patio. As senior women, we felt totally safe walking to the museums, Union Station for our Metro trips, and touring the Capitol. We loved the whole neighborhood and tried to choose different routes to enjoy the architecture and gardens. We loved walking through the park on our way to restaurants along Restaurant Row--all good!! Great place to call home in D.C.

Great apartment in great location!

  • 5 out of 5
This apartment has it all! Front door has a code, so no key to carry all day, internet works perfectly, well stocked, so you do not need to buy soap, TP, etc., enjoyed watching the olympics on the huge flat screen TV. We walked from the apartment to the mall. Picked up a car at Union Station for the weekend when there are no parking restrictions on the street and had no trouble finding a spot. Owner very response. Would stay here again, absolutely!

Wonderful experience

  • 5 out of 5
My Husband and I stayed a week in DC to attend a wedding in the Capitol Hill neighborhood and to spend some time sightseeing. This apartment was a perfect location for us to do both. The apartment is very comfortable, clean and had all the necessities. The weather was cold, so we enjoyed the fireplace very much. The neighborhood was quiet and safe. It was very enjoyable to walk to the Eastern Market, Capitol buildings and restaurants. Alec, the owner, is very helpful and responsive. I would definitely recommend this property!

Great Location. Owner was super responsive.

  • 4 out of 5
At first i thought that the parking was going to be an issue, but we always were able to find a spot and could move the car easily when needed due to parking restrictions on the street. Clean and convenient.
We arrived during the government shut down, but Alec kept us informed of things to do that where not affected.

The house is located on a quiet friendly street less than half a block from Stanton Park and one block from Restaurant Row, a block of restaurants with tables right on the sidewalk. Capitol Hill is a historical conservation neighborhood of beautifully maintained, charming old houses. It has a small-town feel and a human scale, is cosmopolitan, and has a thriving cultural scene. The residential area closest to Washington's institutions, it is home to a large number of politicians and VIPs.
