Perfectly situated on one of Capitol Hill's best blocks! A quiet, historic neighborhood 3 short blocks from the Capitol Dome. One block from Capitol South Metro station. Walk to dozens of restaurants, taverns & shops--all within a charming 3 block walk. You'll love our bright & spacious "English basement" apartment. Almost everything new: the space was completely renovated in 2017-18. The perfect home base for a romantic weekend, business travel, or stress-free family adventure.
Accommodation: a spacious & brightly-lit "English basement" style (1 bedroom) apartment. Clean and uncluttered with plenty of windows and natural light. The keypad-secured front entrance is completely separate from the upstairs Victorian era (c.1890) Washington row house. We recently completed a thorough, floor-to-ceiling basement renovation. Guests control both the central heat & AC so the temperature should always be comfortable.
Bedroom: features a very large king-sized bed with new plush bedding. Plenty of closet & shelf space. Bedside flat screen smart TV with a full cable package, WiFi, Netflix, etc.
Living Room: features a sofa-sleeper with a queen-sized memory foam mattress. Two sitting/reading chairs are in the bay window cove. A large TV mounted over working remote-controlled electric fireplace. (Note: upon request, a 5th guest can be accommodated with a thick self-inflating air mattress and its bedding.)
Kitchen: coffee/tea maker, refrigerator, microwave, traditional oven, 4 burner range, toaster, tile counter-top; glassware, flatware & cooking tools & cutlery supplied. A small "drop-leaf" style table seats 2, but is easily expandable to accommodate 4 diners.
Bathroom: contains a shower and full sized bathtub; plush bath and hand are towels provided, as are toiletries, bathroom tissue, and a hairdryer.
Washer/Dryer: located in a small utility closet; detergent, an iron, and an ironing board are also provided.
Front garden: guests may use the very small front garden. Weather permitting, the small high-top table & 2 swivel chairs are ideal for morning coffee, evening drinks, smoking, or waiting for Uber/Lyft.

John's house is the perfect place to stay in Capitol Hill area!! It's clean, quiet with full of FACILITY you need when you are in travel! The location is absolutely close to everything, we feel totally relax and very happy when we stay there! Don't know when we gonna come back but next time when I come D.C. I will choose John's house again! Take care and best wish to John and Jen!
The location of this place is perfect. A few minutes walk to Capitol south metro which can get you everywhere really quickly. The actual apartment is also very nice. John left us some snacks and breakfast items that were so thoughtful and much appreciated. John also gave us great restaurant recommendations (Sonoma is amazing!) and provided Metro cards for us to easily load. The only downside is the water pressure isn’t the best in the apartment in the sink or shower, but it’s not a showstopper. I would highly recommend and stay again.
Although located in the heart of the close-in Capitol Hill Historic District, the house is on a quiet, leafy residential street facing Folger Park. Numerous trendy restaurants, historic taverns, family cafes, coffee shops, bakeries, and corner groceries are all within an easy 3-5 minute walk . Capitol South Metro station is 1 block west. The Capitol dome, the House office buildings, Library of Congress, Supreme Court, and Shakespeare Library/Theater are only a few blocks North. Five blocks to the East are the historic Eastern Market, 8th Street (Barracks Row) shops/restaurants, and numerous historic homes and gardens. Finally, the up & coming Navy Yard entertainment district & Nationals Park are a quick 15 minute walk (or 5-minute bike-share or Uber ride) to the South.
Getting around could not be easier. The Capitol South Metro (subway) station is 1 block away. Uber, Lyft & taxis are ubiquitous. A convenient Capital Bikeshare docking station is only 100 yards from the front door--and several other docks are within a 3 block radius. Guest are free to use our two free Bikeshare key fobs during their stay.
Bringing a car? Not a problem...our Visitor Parking Pass allows free, unlimited curbside parking on most surrounding streets. Note: during the work week (M-F 8am-5pm) , open spots can sometimes be difficult to find. However, with some advance notice & coordination, we can often assist with "holding" a spot with our own car for your arrival. The Visitor Parking Pass is a good option for guests arriving by car--but who mostly plan to walk or use public transport while here.
