Come stay in our Capitol Hill townhouse! Our house, located on the border of the Capitol Hill Historic District, is a perfect place for launching adventures in DC. Close to Metro, Dining, and Entertainment, we live in a highly walkable neighborhood with everything at your fingertips. The house is larger than the typical DC row home, and you'll have two bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms for your party. There's plenty of room to spread out, cook, and have your own place to unwind.
Our Capitol Hill home is conveniently located for inauguration weekend activities. Close to metro, Eastern Market, and the restaurants on Barracks Row (8th Street SE). You'll love the amount of space you'll have, and the easy access to the District. This house is home to a family of four and a large yellow dog, and we like to rent it out on AirBNB when we are away.
This house has a substantial amount of space compared to the typical Capitol Hill townhouse. A spacious front open dining and living area leads to our fully equipped kitchen. An island is there to enjoy coffee or cocktails with a family area and a half-bath in the back. The quaint backyard has a bbq grill and a table for outdoor entertainment.
Upstairs has two available bedrooms. The front room is home to our 5-year old and his twin bed, but has plenty of room for an air mattress (provided). There is a full bathroom accessible to the front room. In the rear is a separate master suite with a queen bed and master bath.
You will be able to access the entire home, but for the basement, which is a separate apartment.
We only rent when we are out of town, so contact will be by telephone, text, or AirBNB messages only.
Right on the border of the Capitol Hill Historic District, this is a very safe and family-friendly area of D.C. It's a great place to launch adventures to the National Mall, Capitol Hill, the monuments, the Smithsonian museums, the Cherry Blossom Festival, and D.C.'s Fourth of July festivities.
We are in walking distance to the metro, several bus lines, two large grocery stores (Safeway and Harris Teeter), and the vibrant Eastern Market and Barracks Row areas, where you can find dozens of restaurants and bars.
We are within walking distance to both RFK Stadium (where D.C. United and other soccer events are held) and Nationals Park (1.5 miles).
We are also just across the street from a large playground (Watkins Park) in case you're traveling with kids who need a good run.
There is also a vibrant drop-in / pick-up soccer game on the field. If you want a run, adults play under the lights from 8:30-9:45 PM from Tuesday to Thursday night, and from (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)AM on Sundays. A women-only game happens on Monday night. The weeknights tend to bring out the best. Sunday is a more laid-back game. All levels are welcome at both though. I (Steve) usually play Sundays and would be happy to walk over if you are interested in a run.
We are about a 1.1 mile walk from the U.S. Capitol, which is the eastern end of the 2.3 mile long National Mall, home to most of the national monuments and Smithsonian Museums.
We prefer traveling by foot and bike; but we are within a few blocks of two stops on the Orange/Blue/Silver Metro line (Eastern Market and Potomac Avenue), and one block from the Nos. 32, 34, and 36 bus lines. We are also conveniently located near the Navy Yard / Union Station DC Circulator bus route, which picks up at Eastern Market and can bring you to Union Station or Nationals Park. (w(URL HIDDEN)
If you'd like to explore the city by bike, we are within a few blocks of several Capital Bikeshare bike rental docks. (www.c(URL HIDDEN)
If you're driving, there is usually plenty of parking available on the street.
Picking up a taxi from the neighborhood can be tricky, but Uber and Lyft are readily available.
You should note that we live here, so will make some available to hang clothes and such, but would not pack out our things except in exceptional circumstances. Things like spices and foods are there for use, though if something runs out we'd hope you'd run to the grocery store a block away and replace it (or at least just let us know).
We're a small Capitol Hill family with roots in the Pac West and Northeast. We've been in DC for over a decade and every time we think about moving we think about how few places can give us the sense of place and community we have here in our corner of "the Hill."
