Only 3 blocks from the US Capitol and the east side of the National Mall, Seward Square provides the ideal launching pad to see Washington DC!

One of four units in the Seward Square Rowhouse, Unit 1 is located on the first level and comfortably sleeps 6 adults with 2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms and a queen sleeper sofa in the living room. Professionally furnished by interior designers, the unit features a fully equipped kitchen with custom cabinets, carrera marble countertops and top of the line KitchenAid stainless steel appliances, and spa-like bathrooms that showcase glass showers and custom tile work. A washer & dryer and 60' LED HDTV with cable and high-speed wireless internet complete the interior living space, while a covered deck off the master suite provides a much coveted outdoor living space and more room for entertaining.

Located in the center of historic Capitol Hill, the Seward Square Rowhouse is within walking distance of everything you need and want to see. Nestled within a cozy neighborhood and yet only 3 blocks from the Capitol, 2 blocks from Eastern Market and metro, and 1 block from a multitude of restaurants, bars, coffee-houses and shopping along Pennsylvania Avenue, everything DC has to offer will be at your doorstep!

PARKING: On-street parking requires a zoned parking permit, which is provided free of charge for guests to park one vehicle during their stay. Parking for additional vehicles is available less than 2 blocks away at a 24-hour access surface lot for $15 per day.

About David Cooper

Hello and thank you for taking the time to look at my listing! I am a career military officer originally from Austin, Texas finishing my last few years of military service in the DC area. I hope you enjoy your time visiting our nation's capital, and if there is anything I can do to assist, please let me know!

David Cooper purchased this townhome in 2012

Why David Cooper chose Washington DC

Historic Capitol Hill is truly a downtown suburb that offers all the excitement of the city yet retains a safe and small neighborhood feel. The residents here are a tight-knit group comprised mostly of families who possess a strong sense of community. Nestled within the long rows of neighborhood homes you will find pockets of excitement ranging from a multitude of eating establishments to DC's only remaining original public produce market, known as Eastern Market. And of course it's extremely close proximity to the Capitol and various Smithsonian museums puts you literally at the doorstep of our nation's history. It is an absolutely wonderful location for both residents and visitors alike!

What makes this townhome unique

No expense was spared in the complete refurbishment of this house. You will be staying in a historic home complete with modern amenities--1880's on the outside and 2010's on the inside! Location-wise everything you need (restaurants, groceries, shopping, Metro) and everything you want to see (Capitol, Library of Congress, National Mall, Eastern Market, Barracks Row, Smithsonian museums) are just a few blocks away and within easy walking distance. Live amongst the locals and truly feel at home during your visit!

A great place to stay in Washington D.C.

  • 4 of 5

The Rowhouse at Seward Square where we stayed for a week turned out to be perfect for us and our friends while we spent a week in Washington D.C. Each couple had our own room and bathroom with a shared living area and kitchen. The big screen t.v. was perfect to watch at the end of a very busy day. There were a couple of things we needed from David Cooper, the owner, and he had his housekeeper furnish them promptly. The keyless entry was also perfect with no need to carry keys or decide who would keep them. The location was great with several restaurants within a couple of blocks and a small market nearby for basic food items to take back to our place. There were also 2 metro stations within a few blocks as well as the Circulator for transportation. We would highly recommend this place to stay and would stay there again if the situation arises.

Everything was perfect. Location and standard was very good. Easy to find a parking spot on the streets. We were a family of 5 and felt so lucky to pick this place!

First class accommodation in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Being four elderly folk from the UK who were on an adventure of a lifetime trip to the USA to visit Washington, New York and Boston was quite a daunting thought. We need not have worried, we found all the people we met in the States so friendly, helpful and engaging. However you can imagine that we were wondering if the accommodation our daughter had arranged would live up to the pictures posted on the internet. We need not have worried. We fell in love with the house as soon as we saw it. The entry to the house and the apartment was simple using the keypad, and it was very convenient not having to worry about keys. The accommodation was first class. A very spacious comfortable lounge/dining area with a large bay window with a lovely view. A very modern well equipped kitchen easily which met all our needs. The bathrooms and bedrooms were very modern and comfortable and a good night's sleep was had by all. We need not have been concerned at all with our Washington accommodation, we were overjoyed. Staying on Capitol Hill is great for restaurants and shops and within easy walking distance to the Library of Congress and the Capitol Building. There is an excellent bus service into the centre of the City to access the many museums and interesting attractions. All the bus drivers we encountered were most helpful and friendly. Every one of us would thoroughly recommend the accomodation both for location and comfort.

Perfect Place for DC Visit!

  • 5 of 5

As a VRBO owner myself, I know what makes an awesome vacation rental and I was very pleased with this lovely Capitol Hill row house. We stayed 4 nights and found the location perfect for our stay. The house was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. There were plenty of bars and restaurants nearby and it was super easy to get taxis for further distances. Would highly recommend it.

Great Unit in a Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We were not let down. This was our first time using VRBO and what a great experience. Unit is completely updated and has everything you need. Could not be easier to check-in and Check-out. No keys to keep track of and that makes it easy for everyone to come and go. Parking permit was great and I was fortunate to get the spot in front of unit and car stayed there the entire trip. Proximity to metro, bus, restaurants, market, Capitol and museums is fantastic. I had 5 in my family and taxi or Lyft was more convienant and quicker than bus. You truly live like the locals when you stay in this unit. I have already shared with 2 friends that are visiting DC in future.

Owner, David, was great and very responsive to any question.

On drive home from vacation we all had to pick favorite part of vacation. My wife and I both picked this vacation rental as our favorite part of the vacation. You can't go wrong renting a unit in this house from David.
