Overview

About the property

As Close as You Can Get to U.S. Capital

If you want to tour DC by bicycle there is a rental station 1/2 block from this vacation rental, which is only 3 blocks from the US Capitol and the beginning of the National Mall.

The Flat at Library Court is a row house in the historic district with a completely renovated interior and all new furnishings decorated with Washington D.C. flair. You’ll enjoy expansive views of the stately Library of Congress, which is directly across the street. The house backs to Library Court, a 300 year old historic cobblestone street built in the days of horse-drawn buggies.

Why you can’t beat our location: Capitol Hill is a historic residential neighborhood that stretches from the U.S. Capitol, and Pennsylvania Ave, the main corridor, emanates from the Capitol beginning at 2nd Street. We are one block away on 3rd St – the first residential block from the Capitol. The further you get (4th Street, 5th, 6th and so on), the less desirable and less safe the areas become, and the longer your walk to the sites. This is truly as good and as close as it gets! Don’t talk yourself into staying blocks away…

• 1 Block or Less: U.S. Supreme Court, Library of Congress (across the street), Folger (Shakespeare) Theatre

• Within 2 to 3 blocks: U.S. Capitol, U.S. Capitol Visitor Center, Cannon House Office Building, Capitol Mall, U.S. Botanical Garden, South Capital Metro station.

• Tour Bus: The Circulator Tour Bus picks up one block away but most of what you’ll want to see is within a short walk.

• Dining 1 Block or Less: We the Pizza; Good Stuff Eatery (President Obama’s favorite hamburger), Cosi (sandwiches, soups and salads), Starbucks, Sonoma Restaurant and Wine Bar, Hunan Dynasty, Hawk N Dove; Capitol Hill Liquor and Deli

• Stores 1-2 Blocks: Corner Market Grocery Store, Grubb’s Care Pharmacy, Gandel’s Liquor, Riverby Books.

The Penthouse Apartment

Up a flight of stairs, you will enter the Penthouse Apartment of the Flat at Library Court. This two story unit has 3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and expansive views of the stately Library of Congress. The kitchen is fully stocked and the unit has wi-fi, cable TV and central air conditioning/heat.

DESCRIPTION OF NEIGHBORHOOD:

Capitol Hill is the largest historic residential neighborhood in Washington D.C., stretching easterly in front of the United States Capitol along wide avenues. It is one of the oldest residential communities in Washington D.C.

As a geographic feature, Capitol Hill rises near the center of the District of Columbia and extends eastward. The Capitol Hill neighborhood today straddles two quadrants of the city, Southeast and Northeast, and a large portion is now designated as the Capitol Hill historic district. The name Capitol Hill is often used to refer to both the historic district and to the larger neighborhood around it.

Capitol Hill's landmarks include not only the United States Capitol, but also the Senate and House office buildings, the Supreme Court building, the Library of Congress, the Marine Barracks, the Washington Navy Yard, and Congressional Cemetery.

The main non-residential corridor of Capitol Hill is Pennsylvania Avenue, a lively commercial street with shops, restaurants and bars. Eastern Market is an 1873 public market on 7th Street SE, where vendors sell fresh meat and produce in indoor stalls and at outdoor farmers' stands. It is also the site of an outdoor flea market every weekend.

If available, we can provide parking for 1 vehicle at Union Station which is 5 blocks from this rental.

Please check our other properties at 913567, 3526541 & 4015008 in Capitol Hill with homeaway.com.If you have a question about our rental please don't hesitate to call Bob Finn at 623-297-8193. I sometimes call the person inquiring about our rental, but am finding that lots of people don't answer their phones these days. I find that it is some times easier to communicate in a phone conversation then it is by email. We want to make sure there is no misunderstanding about the location of our rentals and it amenities. Parking is limited in DC so if you are driving to DC you might want to talk with Bob about some parking solutions.

Great Property, Perfect for Families!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place for a family or group to stay while visiting Washington, D.C. The home is clean, roomy, and comfortable without being overly fussy (for example - there are not a lot extra things around that break) making it great for people traveling with children, but stylish enough for a group of adult friends. There are three bedrooms with lots of sleeping options, four full baths, including two with tubs. I stayed here with my daughter-in-law, two grandsons, daughter and granddaughter. It is close to restaurants, a block and half to a Starbucks, and a small but well stocked grocery just a few blocks away. My daughter was able to take her morning run past the Washington Monument. It was easy to Uber around and we also had meals delivered, which is very convenient with the kids. The neighborhood was friendly and pleasant and we all felt safe walking around. Being so close to all of the attractions and museums made getting around quick and coming back for nap times a breeze. This home is a great option while staying in D.C. and I will definitely stay again. There are two flights of stairs, so keep that in mind - maybe two smaller bags instead of one large. Bob is very responsive and communication was easy.

Great stay in Capital Hill.

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Capitol Hill district. The location is perfect for exploring the city and there are plenty of good eating options close by. We were a family of 5 with 3 older children and the layout of the apartment was great and it was well stocked and appointed.

The only downside was the heating in the top back bedroom, irregardless of what we tried to do to mitigate this - just hot. However, this does not take away from an overall great stay.

Stunning Capital Hill House

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic Thanksgiving at this beautiful house. It was centrally located and was the perfect setup. We loved the layout of the house and the rooms were extremely spacious. I wouldn't change a single thing about the house.

Very nice stay

  • 5 of 5

Property was as advertised. Very good location in the heart of Capitol Hill. Safe neighborhood. Walking distance to many restaurants and bars...and the Capitol building. The house itself was in great condition and very clean. Did not need anything that was not provided. More than enough room for six adults and an infant. Would recommend.

Great location, great house, great property management

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay at DC. You really can't beat the location. The house overall was very comfortable with plenty of seating for my family. It was a nicely decorated house with good furnishing. The house was fully stocked with all the amenities that you would find at a hotel. The kitchen had all the essentials that you would need to cook. Bob ( the owner) is awesome! He was very responsive and was a great resource for all things DC. Prior to our arrival, he gave us a wealth of information from metro map to local grocery delivery services. Interacting with him had been a pleasure.

The only minor (and I stress minor) criticism I have is the king size bed upstairs. The bed was pretty noisy. It creaked with every little turn. After a little investigating, we concluded the mattress was fine and it was the box spring underneath that was making all the noise. Still it would not prevent me from recommending this place to other people or staying here again if we are ever in the area. Thanks for a great stay.
