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 house in 2014
Capitol Hill townhouses are quaint but tend to be very deep and narrow, and in consequence dark. This house is the antithesis of that, with its open floor plan and skylights. It is a whole-house rental, not a basement or condo, and within the context of Capitol Hill's 19th century houses, is relatively large at 1700 square feet.
We enjoyed this rental very much. For a family of 5, with two being teenagers, it was nice to have three comfortable bedrooms. We were close to a neighborhood market and several great restaurants. We cooked dinner there a few nights and breakfast every AM. The kitchen had everything we needed. The location was convenient to walk to the capitol and the museums. We took a hop on and off trolley to see some of the farther sites. You can start the tour at Union Station which is a short walk. We also took a cruise to see Mount Vernon.
We had a wonderful stay at the house. We loved the convenient location to all of the sights in D.C.. The house is pretty, clean and comfortable. It was a great fit for our family. We appreciated the owners prompt answers to our questions. He was very helpful and friendly!
Thanks for the wonderful stay at your Capitol Hill home. We stayed with our family of 4, and my husband's parents. There was more than enough space for the 6 of us. Full kitchen and used the grill a couple times. Nice outdoor space. We obviously lucked out with weather in February, since it was in the 70's every day. Easy walks to the metro, grocery store wasn't too far. Lovely location.
Stocked with lots of seasoning. We found 0 dish soap or dishwasher tablets the first night, being the only surprise.
Communication with Alec was timely and easy.
Saw lots of museums, rented a car from Union Station and drove to Gettysburg and even caught an Argentine tango lesson at Eastern Market.
Thanks again. Would definitely recommend renting this location.

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.
