About David Cooper

Hello and thank you for taking the time to look at my listing! I am a retired career military officer originally from Austin, Texas and finished 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 2006

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 remodeling and furnishing this house. You will be staying in an historic home complete with modern amenities. Location-wise, everything you need (restaurants, groceries, shopping, Metro) is within 2 blocks and everything you want to see (Capitol, Library of Congress, National Mall, Smithsonian museums) is just a few blocks further and within easy walking distance. Live amongst the locals and truly feel at home during your visit!

Perfect location and accommodations

We stayed at this row house last fall and again last week. Perfect location and wonderful accommodations. Refundable deposit was quickly returned and the owner was so easy to deal with. Highly recommend staying here!

Location, location, location!

The Capitol Row House was perfect for our stay in Washington. The neighborhood was full of charm as we walked to all of our tourist activities. The apartment was beautiful and very peaceful. The kitchen was great with all top of the line appliances. The best part about the row house was that is was in an ideal location near the Capital and Union Station. We became very familiar with the metro system and we used the bike share system to get to the museums and to visit all the memorials. We will return soon and we will definitely stay at the row house property again.

very cozy and comfortable. Can't beat the location for sightseeing as it is close to Union Station

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed the stay at this location. For just two people it worked well. I liked the walkability to Union Station. The owner has made the ease of entry and using things like the wifi very easy. There is a garage space for one car which we rented for a drive to Mount Vernon. I would stay here again. One note, the area was having a heat wave and the freezer was broken so no ice for drinks.

Great location for DC vacation.

  • 4 of 5

David's place is great. He is a great property owner and quickly communicates when we had questions giving precise directions for us as renters and leaving some complimentary toiletries, etc. The property description is spot on. The location is wonderful for sight-seeing. The metro is just blocks away and the walk to the Capitol and Washington Mall is very doable-about 10-15 minutes. The English basement apartment is well furnished but a bit small for four adults and ideal for two. The kitchen is well-appointed. We felt very safe in the neighborhood and there are enough small restaurants or grocery stores within walking distance to buy groceries and to have a quick bite. It is certainly a plus to park the car in the garage since street parking is very tight; however the garage is tight as well but we were able to work with the vacationers that rented the space upstairs when we needed to move cars. The outside patio is nice although is it a view is of the alley and other parking areas. Other reviewers wrote about noises from upstairs tenants and it’s true; you can hear walking which was pretty loud but it’s a result of staying in a basement in a building that is old. At some times the noise from walking is a slight nuisance especially if those tenants are not on the same schedule as you but certainly understandable. It’s great having an attached private laundry room which served as storage and changing room for us to help with some privacy since the bathroom is off the bedroom and not too large. Watch out for the flies and gnats that hover around both entrances when entering and exiting. We had a great time and this apartment certainly helped us experience living in DC for a short six days.
