About the property

Townhome, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Relax at the end of your day in a townhouse that a former Supreme Court chief justice once called home. Three comfy bedrooms give everyone lots of room. The well-stocked kitchen and separate dining room, plus a patio, make this a real home away from home!

You won’t find other digs so right-in-the-middle-of-it-all: Stroll to a Metro hub, the National Mall, or the new Nationals baseball stadium.

Just one block south is the DC Wharf - shops, restaurants, river boats and water taxis. From there, it's a short walk to the Jefferson Memorial and Tidal Basin paddle-boats, the FDR and MLK memorials, the Holocaust Museum, the Bureau of Printing and Engraving, and the Washington Monument and other National Mall sites.

Heading north from the house, the Smithsonian Air & Space museum is a 6-block walk and the Castle is 2 blocks beyond that. Other museums and memorials stretch along the National Mall, with the Capitol Dome and Supreme Court on its eastern end, and the Lincoln memorial on its western end.

South and west of the house are Nationals Park and (in July) the new soccer stadium. Even closer: the National Defense University and Fort Leslie McNair's grassy expanses, where military bands regularly perform on summer evenings.

Just across the Potomac River are Haines Point's golf course and park.

To get around hassle-free, hop on the subway at L'Enfant Plaza or Waterfront stations - each is four blocks away. Or catch a city bus, which runs between Nationals Park and the Convention Center, passing the National Mall, Verizon Center/Capitol One Arena and the restaurants at Gallery Place.

One off-street parking space is included. An extra parking space may be available - please ask.

Owners are long-time DC residents and neighbors, and are happy to answer questions and share tips for visitors.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect location for my family. 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms upstairs. Owner provided a pack-n-play and a high chair which was very helpful with our 1 year old. Had a great time; owner is very nice.

Excellent location, on site parking and comfortable accommodations. Great property!

  • 5 of 5

This property is in an excellent location with great access to restaurants and the wharf. It is mere minutes from the National Mall via car or a comfortable walk if you want. The on-site parking is key and was a life saver. The house was cozy with good sized beds that can accomodate a good number of people. Overall this is a great place to stay and a great value in DC.

Spacious, well stocked home in nice location with incredible owner

  • 5 of 5

I've rented from Deborah for 2 summers now and have enjoyed staying in her house immensely. The house is incredibly spacious for 3 people to live in full time and has plenty of room for guests as well. The owner keeps the house well furnished and filled with every little thing you need for living. Whenever there are problems (very very rarely) Deborah is quick to help fix them.

The home is a quick walk to two different metro stations, a Safeway, a CVS, the water, and many restaurants. It is a quiet neighborhood that's very safe.

I would highly suggest for anyone looking for long term or short term housing. We stayed for a total of 6 months over two years and could not have been happier!

Great Location and Perfect Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

As the other reviews have indicated the location for the visitor and tourist is wonderful; blocks from the center of the Mall, a short walk to the water front and a couple blocks from a Safeway, CVS and Subway.

The home was immaculate and well stocked. Towels and linens were abundant and easily accessible. For us the kitchen was the high point since we like to cook. We have rented several times from VRBO and this is the BEST kitchen yet. There was every pot, pan, serving dishes, appliances and utensils you could want. Plenty of dishes and glassware. It was a pleasure to cook and so easy.

Very nice neighborhood. Felt comfortable walking around at all hours. The neighbors were quiet didn't hear a sound from anyone.

To top it all off Deborah was so easy to work with, quick in responding and inordinately helpful. This rental was perfect in every way.

1st trip to Washington DC

  • 5 of 5

We arrived a little earlier than expected (great flight & perfect weather) but the housekeeper greeted us at the door and had permission to let us in. She was very friendly and it appeared she did a good job cleaning the townhome. This was a great spot for the four of us to stay -- easy access to transportation and local shopping. The home has comfy beds and enough bathrooms; the kitchen is a bit small but has everything we needed to feel right at home. The homeowner was very friendly, easy to contact and extra-accommodating when we had questions. We would recommend this VRBO rental and will plan on staying there again if we get a chance to visit the DC area again.

Can I Give This One 6 Stars?

  • 5 of 5

We were three couples looking for a townhome for a reunion, and we struck gold. Plenty of room, a fully stocked kitchen and more linens than I have at home. The house was clean and tidy and our hosts included many little extras. They left easy instructions for using the Metro (an easy 4 blocks away) and getting around the city. The only negative was rainy weather, and Deborah graciously invited us to stay longer if needed. Any little question I had was answered within 5 minutes of my text or call. We use VRB0 a lot and this was our best find. Thank you, Deborah.
