Description & Details of 1-br Capitol Hill apt (Eastern Market)
*Price already includes 14.5% DC Lodging Tax. The pre-tax price is $179/night.*

We have nearly 90 reviews. Contact me to read them.

We have a 1-br furnished, English basement apartment on Capitol Hill (Eastern Market) in Washington, DC. It has its own ingress (front door) and egress (back door) and is located beneath our Capitol Hill rowhome. We're a family of five: two adults and our three recently-adopted foster children, ages 3, 4, and 6. As we live above the apartment, you will hear us -- and we will likely hear you. It is city-living! (Our story was highlighted a few months ago in The Washington Post.)

We're situated on a residential street that mixed city-life with residential-life. We're less than 1 block from the Eastern Market Metro (you can see it from the front door!), and 1-4 blocks from numerous restaurants, bars, coffeeshops, etc. (on Pennsylvania Ave., SE as well as 8th St., SE, aka Barracks Row). We're 7 blocks from the US Capitol and the Library of Congress; about 6 blocks from the Washington Navy Yard (ask about the 10% Active Duty / Retired Military discount we offer); about 12 blocks from Nationals Stadium; and about 9 blocks from the Folger Shakespeare Library. The National Mall (Smithsonian Museums) is easily accessible: it's either 4 Metro stops away (exiting at Smithsonian Station), or hopping on any 30s bus (our favorite).

This apartment has a Walk Score´┐Ż of 91/100, Walkers' Paradise.

Parking would be on-street parking but generally we're always able to find a spot on our block. If you request it, we can provide you a visitor's parking pass that will allow you to park without fear of being ticketed/towed. Our neighborhood in particular has quite restrictive parking restrictions unless you live here or have the aforementioned visitor's parking pass.

Additional perks that you'll find:
*coffee maker, coffee grinder, and French press
*washer/dryer
*iron and ironing board
*cable television (29) with DVD player, including Roku to watch streaming movies from Netflix
*wireless Internet
*some snacks provided
*some toiletries provided in case you forget yours!
*speaker set (with radio) for your iPhone
*iPhone, iPad and phone charging station

Our house (not this apartment) generates 68% of the house's energy through the 14 solar panels on our roof (one of the first solar installations on Capitol Hill!). The apartment has CFLs, a dual-flush toilet, new Pella windows, and a Nest Learning Thermostat. Additionally, the electricity is sourced from local wind farms through Clean Currents.

For grocery stores, there is a 1) Yes Organic Market 2 blocks away; 2) Harris Teeter 7 blocks away; and 3) Safeway 10 blocks away. CVS, Starbucks, and Dunkin' Donuts are all within a 2-minute walk.

The apartment can conceivably sleep 6 people (but it's probably best for 4 or fewer): 2 on the full/double bed in the bedroom; 2 on the full/double pull-out sofa in the living room; and 2 on the queen blow-up air mattress (which would be set up in the living room). We also have a crib and a pack-and-play available if requested.

Pets are allowed; the cleaning fee doubles, however. No smoking or incense, please.

When you make your reservation, I'll provide you online access to our detailed, 22-page Tips & Tricks book. You'll also have a hardcopy of this available upon check-in. We provide not only information about your reservation (e.g., checking in, checking out, using the Internet, streaming movies from Netflix, etc.), but also local attractions, restaurants, and cool, interesting local things to do. (Quite a few things tourists would never stumble upon!)

For each person over 5 years old in your party we'll provide you a Metro SmarTrip card with a few bucks on it. This will a) save you the time of having to purchase paper farecards; and b) save you the $1/trip paper farecard surcharge.

Bonus #1: You'll have unlimited 29-minute bike rides on the Capital Bikeshare bike-sharing program (there's a station directly across the street). We'll even throw in $5 free if you accidentally go above the 29-minute rides (and we get charged). (Tip: Plot your route so that you check-in your bike before 29 minutes... and then check-out the same bike and start again!)

Bonus #2: We just installed a Roku device which will allow you to stream movies from Netflix onto the tv in the apartment.

Bonus #3: If you happen to be in the apartment on a Saturday or a Sunday, enjoy home delivery of The Washington Post.

Bonus #4: If you stay 6 nights or longer, we'll give you the option of allowing our cleaning lady to do a cleaning session on the apartment, if you choose, free of charge for you.
