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 location and space

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location and lots of space for my family. Kitchen had everything we needed to cook some nice dinners. Close to the wharf to get some fresh fish.

Only negative was wi-fi wasn’t working but we were out most of the day anyway

Plenty of space

  • 4 of 5

Well-loved home with a few quirks to get used to. We enjoyed our visit here, don't miss the fenced-in backyard.

Location is very convenient, walked to Mall, Union Station.

Plenty of space for our group of 2 couples and an elder.

Beds were not 100% comfortable, a bit on the over-soft side, but that's personal preference.

Special bonus of a parking space. Made for a very easy visit.

Would definitely stay again.

Fabulous in Every Way!

  • 5 of 5

This was one of our best VRBO experiences in so many ways! The property is better than described. We had plenty of room for 2 adults and 3 teens. The kitchen was well appointed; we were able to cook several meals. Basics such as salt and pepper and paper towels were provided. There were plenty of towels, wash cloths, other linens, and toilet paper. It was just a 10 min walk to the mall, metro, or bike share. Safeway was also a 10 min walk. It was a very comfortable place to come back to at the end of a long day of site seeing. We felt safe to leave the kids there for some much needed adult only time. Deborah was great with directions and helpful advice. We will definitely plan to stay again on our next trip to DC! Thank you for sharing your home with a family from Oregon!

Just fantastic! The location is the best, it has everything we needed, and owners were responsive!

  • 5 of 5

We were so close to all of the activities and restaurants at the wharf, and we were still only a 1/2 mike walk from the national mall. We walked to all of the museums, as well as to the White House and Capitol. It is also close to the subway. The grocery store is a five minute walk away. The location is fantastic.

The house had everything we needed. Full kitchen and dining room. The twin bed with trundle I’m the master bedroom was perfect for our family, which has little ones that love to make their way into mom and dad’s room at night. Plenty of blankets, sheets, pillows, towels, toiletries, etc.

I also noticed how clean it was. We’ve stayed in lots of places and this is the first one (other than some hotels) that was clean top to bottom.

And the owners were very responsive to any questions or needs we had. This is a great place for a family who wants to see DC’s sights and also have plenty of space to live.

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.
