Overview

About the property

Spacious 2 bedroom, 2 full bath English basement apartment in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Washington, DC. The location is ideal for exploring the US Capitol, the Library of Congress, the Smithsonian and the Monuments. You can easily walk everywhere, use the Capital Bikeshare or take the metro at the end of the block. We are a short walk to the SE waterfront, National’s baseball stadium and Eastern Market/Barracks Row which boast numerous restaurants, bars, coffeeshops.

The apartment has 2 bedrooms, 2 full baths and a pull-out sofa to comfortably accommodate 6 people. We can also provide a pack ‘n play for babies. This is a full kitchen so you can cut your dining costs and cook at home. There is a washer/dryer and wireless internet as well.

Capitol Hill is a wonderful mix of city living with a residential feel. The neighborhood is very family friendly and there are 2 playgrounds within 3 blocks.

A couple of things to note: The apartment is an English basement apartment located at the base of our rowhouse. We are a family so from 8am-8pm you may hear us! Parking is on-street parking but generally you can find a spot on the block.

This is a non-smoking apartment. If you need to smoke, please make sure to go outside!

About Genevieve Taft-Vazquez

We are a family of five and have lived in Washington DC for the last 10 years. We love living in Capitol Hill. The Hill is very family friendly, has great restaurants, parks and farmers markets and enables us to frequent the nearby Smithsonian museums. Prior to coming to DC, my husband and I spent time in Bolivia and Guatemala and were fortunate to stay with wonderful hosts. We hope to provide a similar experience for visitors to DC!

Had everything we needed and awesome location

  • 4 of 5

Appreciated the extras like water in the frig, shampoo in the showers, and the toys for the kids. Master bed was very noisy everytime anyone moved very hard to sleep. Also was small especially for anyone over 5'9". The bedroom was also hot with only the ceiling fan but was fine after we bought a small table fan. Shower curtain was short and didn't prevent water from escaping. Didn't enjoy the fall or the massive bruise on my side and hip from water on the floor. Would have liked more dresser room and working dressers. Just used the top small drawers and the top of the dresser. Overall stay was awesome and convenient. Didn't know across the street was loading only when we parked at night. Signs faced the street inside of facing the direction of the traffic. So we got a not so nice $100 parking ticket. Ended up parking two streets over.

Amazing Location and Awesome Hosts!!

  • 5 of 5

This property was very comfortable and location was amazing! We would definitely stay at this location again! Host is very responsive and helpful with any questions you may have. Neighborhood is very charming and quiet. As others described metro is very close to go anywhere you need to go. If you like to ride a bike they have bikes available for rent on the corner. The property has everything you would need to make your stay comfortable so you can be confident in choosing this location.

Excellent location and very comfortable accommodations

  • 5 of 5

The location is great, 2 minutes walking to the Metro, 6 minutes walking to the Library of Congress and the Capitol. Several good restaurants nearby and Barracks Row is only 5 minutes away via Metro. The Smithsonian Metro stop puts you right in the center of the Mall and Museum Row. Very easy transit via Metro to and from Reagan International, the Pentagon and Arlington. Very cozy, clean and comfortable apartment, perfect for our party of four. We would definitely book again!

Super close to House offices and the Capitol. Clean, Large Kitchen, Two Nice Showers, Great Hostess

  • 5 of 5

This is a great value for anyone traveling with 3-6 people. My title sums up all you need to know. I've previously stayed at an expensive hotel a few blocks away. This apt clearly has that hotel room beat. Good WiFi. Nice bath towels, great heating, a great 6 person gathering dining table. I would definitely stay their again if it was available.
