Our three-bedroom home is in an unbeatable location just 400 yards to the steps of the US Capitol and National Mall. Walk to all of DC's major sights or hop on the Metro just 1.5 blocks away. Our home sleeps nine and is perfect for family vacations, group gatherings and long-term stays. Experience the charm of exposed brick walls and all hardwood floors while enjoying the modern conveniences of a 2016 renovation. We are AirBNB Superhosts and have a 100% Five-Star rating from previous guests!

The space

Our historic home is situated on the closest residential street to the US Capitol building. Its location makes exploring Washington, DC a matter of literally walking out the front door! The unit itself is the first floor and walk-out basement level of a beautiful Capitol Hill rowhome. The unit is over 1400 square feet, has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, kitchen, living room and dining room (seats eight). The home is elegantly appointed with new, stylish furnishings and locally-inspired artwork. Book with confidence. We offer AirBNB's most flexible cancellation policy!

Kitchen. Enjoy all stainless-steel appliances, beautiful granite countertops and an upgraded kitchen. Pots, pans, dishes, accessories — you'll find all the tools you need to put together a snack or a feast. Barbecue on the back patio using our provided propane grill. Save time and let us grocery shop for you! Send us a detailed list of your grocery needs at least two days before your check-in and we'll have the fridge stocked when you arrived. Just reimburse us for the cost of the food.

Beds. You'll find two bedrooms with high-quality queen-sized Saatva plush soft mattresses and a third bedroom with two plush twin mattresses. In the living room is a queen-sized sleeper sofa with a MiracleFoam mattress. There is an additional twin-sized foam mattress pull out sleeper sofa on the lower level. We provide all the necessary linens and blankets for a good night's sleep. Rest assured, all pillows and bedding are hypoallergenically sealed for comfort and hygiene. A Pack 'n Play crib is also included.

Bath. The unit has two full bathrooms. One bathroom includes a combination tub and shower with double vanity. The other bathroom has a shower and single vanity. We provide towels, as well as a starter kit of shower gel, shampoo, conditioner and lotion. Leave the hair dryer at home. We have that, too.

Entertainment. After a long day of touring DC, kick back in front of one of our large LED-screen televisions -- one in each bedroom and living room -- equipped with premium satellite TV. Of course, the home is also equipped with wireless high speed internet and some classic board games in case of a rainy day.

Safety. Given its proximity to the Capitol, the area around the home is constantly patrolled by the US Capitol Police and a manned police guard post is located just a few yards from the front door. The home itself is equipped with digital keypad door locks. No fumbling with a lockbox when you arrive. Each guest has their own unique code which ensures that you are the only one with access to the unit during your stay. (You can even pick your own code.)

Kid-friendly. We've child-proofed this home. Breakables and dangerous items have been moved out of the little ones' reach. We've provided an easy-to-set-up Graco Pack 'n Play crib for bedtime as well as a baby gate to prevent access to the stairway. One bathroom has a low-profile tub/shower combination for an easy bath time. We provide an umbrella stroller to make getting around town with the little one easier.

Other amenities: The unit also includes an iron, ironing board, cleaning supplies, foldable grocery/shopping cart and in-unit efficiency washer and dryer.

Guest access

This is a totally private, independent unit with three separate and dedicated entrances. Guests are welcome to enjoy the entire unit as well as the front yard and small rear brick patio.

Interaction with guests

We enjoy sharing advice on visiting DC and we’re happy to answer any questions about the home. Otherwise, we prefer to provide guests their privacy. We love living in DC, especially in this house, but we travel a lot and want others to enjoy it while we're away.

Other things to note

A nearby passenger train runs during the daytime as early as 6:20 AM. It's not something we get complaints about, but nonetheless we want our guests to be informed about it as it could be a disturbance to some. At night, the area turns quiet and peaceful to let you rest and reflect on the day's activities.

There are two, completely separate units in our home. We (or sometimes other guests) will be staying in the other unit. However, both units have private spaces and entrances.

Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate early check-ins or late check-outs. Check-in time is anytime after 3:00pm and check-out time is anytime before 11:00am. We can, however, normally accommodate guests who need to drop off their luggage as early as 12:00pm.

Lovely property in a great location. All the major DC attractions were either within walking distance or able to be accessed via the metro- a few steps up the road.
