Overview

About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

The location is perfect (in the heart of Capitol Hill's best street) for someone on an extended business trip and/or vacation who prefers a different environment vs. a hotel room, and who will treat our home as your own during the short-term stay. The house is located on a Historic St. which is quiet, safe, and within walking distance (blocks) to the famous Eastern Market, Capitol, Supreme Court, Library of Congress, Senate, etc. Also within walking distance are shops, restaurants, grocery stores, two Metro stops, jazz clubs, coffee houses, dry cleaners, Shakespeare Theatre, and the famous National Mall where you can visit the Smithsonian museums for free which include the National Gallery of Art, Museum of Natural History, Air and Space museum, etc.

For those unfamiliar with the term carriage house, let me explain: At the turn of the century, most large Victorian homes had a separate small house in the back of the main house to store the carriages as well as horses. Today, as homes were modernized and renovated, the small houses were converted into living dwellings with a private alley entrance not unlike many apartments in Paris, London, (European cities). There are approximately five carriage houses located behind the main houses on our street. The cobblestone alley is well lit, very wide, short, and of course, very safe.

Our street is one of the safest streets in DC as well as the widest and most beautiful. The house is air conditioned, has hardwood floors on the second floor where the living room, entertainment room, master bedroom and bathroom as well as washer/dryer are located. Ceramic tile is on the first floor with a well stocked kitchen, separate dining room, and powder room. Other amenities include DVD Player, two TV's, Stereo, Cable, Wi-Fi, hair dryer, clocks, as well as linens and towels, etc.

The security deposit is due at or before check-in which is 2 PM. Check out time is 10 AM. Note: If checking-in or checking-out outside posted times an additional fee may apply. References required as well as an Application Reservation must be signed which includes the aforementioned terms.

We had a lovely stay at the Carriage House. The location was perfect.

  • 5 of 5

The location is close to the Eastern Market where fresh produce, yummy bakery, and fresh meats and fish. There is a Metro Station close by which can take you everywhere. You can walk to the Capitol and to the many Smithsonian museums. Enjoyed walking along the Capital Mall. Eat at the many wonderful restaurants near by on 7th and 8th streets...all within walking distance. We enjoyed many meals at the Carriage House as well. The area felt safe and enjoyed early morning walks in the quiet neighborhood. Having a welcome bottle of wine is a nice touch. Only draw back might be the stairs to the living room and bedroom. We are seniors, but did manage the stairs. There is so much to see that even with 16 days, we were unable to see it all. We would recommend the Epic Evening Tour so you can the numerous memorials at night. The D.C. It All Tour is a great way tour so you get a comprehensive guided tour of D.C...Theresa was GREAT! If we come back to D.C., we definitely will stay at the Carriage House. It was great for 3 adults. Ken is only a phone call away and very helpful. Thank you, Ken, for having such a nice and affordable place to stay......Just Jane

A cozy apartment close to everything in the Capitol Hill area.

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay at the Carriage House. Owner provided everything needed to ensure a relaxing visit in the Nation's Capitol. From a welcoming bottle of wine, maps of the city, recommendations for restaurants, to (unfortunately) needed umbrellas for a day of heavy rain.

Spectacular location and all of the desired ammenities!

  • 5 of 5

The property was ideal for our exploration of the capitol and was walking distance to many of the sites we wanted to visit. The Carriage House was clean and welcoming, warm and well-decorated with a well-equipped kitchen, a great library and all the comforts of home. Ken was the consummate host, making sure we were cared for on our late arrival to our forgotten stuffed toy after departure, Thanks for everything Ken - we hope to see you again soon!

A real home from home

  • 5 of 5

This is the most beautiful property, and literally has just about everything you could possibly need. Lovely decor, clean, well equipped kitchen, comfortable bed and right on the Capitol Buildings doorstep. Very cosy with a kitchen, wc, and dining room downstairs and a living room, bedroom and full bathroom upstairs. Also a washing machine and dryer for small loads of washing. A bonus for me was the little garden area outside where I could smoke. The amount of information provided by the owner is phenomenal - everything from take out menus to restaurant recommendations, maps, brochures on different attractions and he also provided metro smart trip cards which you just add money to and you can use on all transport in the Metro area. Very useful. And the welcome bottle of wine left for us was gratefully received. The house is behind the main street and pretty easy to find and the Eastern Market area is literally a 5-10 minute walk for restaurants, diners, CVS pharmacy and the Metro. The Capitol building is about an 8 minute walk the other way. Very close to all the National Mall attractions including the Smithsonian museums and everywhere else is very easy to get to using the Metro bus or rail. Very safe and friendly area too. Diner just across the road and two little grocery stores in a 2 minute walk. The listing for this property was very accurate and we could fault nothing. The pre-holiday information package that we received from the owner covered everything we could think of and was very helpful. We really felt we'd struck lucky with this little house, location, condition, equipment and information provided were all completely spot on. Loved it and, not only would we recommend it to other people, we are hoping to return to Washington DC in a couple of years and will not be looking for anywhere else to stay. It was perfect for us.
