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!

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!
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!
This was a very nice basement apartment. The location is very close to Union Station, but on quiet residential street. On the corner was a small neighborhood grocery with gourmet sandwiches and coffee- Union Grocery! I didn't give it 5 stars because upstairs residents walking around is easily heard and some may find it disruptive.
I highly recommend staying here! It is within walking distance of the Capitol, Supreme Court, and so close to Union Station. Condo was exactly as described. We would definitely stay here again on another visit!
This place is in a fantastic location and the owner was very responsive by email. The kitchen is well-equipped. There is a great vegan breakfast place a few blocks away. The apartment can be loud if renters in the above apartment are not considerate.
great location, nice apartment. as advertisd and we had a very nice stay and would stay again. comfy bed and nice amenities. only complaint - sheets on foldout bed are worn and top sheet has two holes in it. heads up to owner: coffee maker doesnt automatically turn off and boils coffee to residue; light bulbs over breakfast counter need replacement. otherwise, very nice.
Perfect location to walk to many of the DC sites. Having Union Kitchen Grocery literally steps away proved beneficial. We ended up eating breakfast, cocktails & dinner in with food/drinks gathered at Union. The deck was a perfect place to relax, enjoy the fall weather, chat and watch the squirrels. It would have been a 5 star stay if the people in the flat above removed their shoes. We heard adults stomping around at 2am and kids running all over at 6am - can't say we got much rest as a result. The flat could use some extra blankets, otherwise it was well appointed. The owner was quick to respond, provided useful information and refunded the security deposit in a timely manner. If you want to feel like a DC resident in a neighborhood with friendly people out walking dogs & pushing strollers this is the spot.
