The SpaceWe recently renovated our historic Capitol Hill home, including the bright and cozy English basement studio apartment, which will be your accommodations. English basements in this neighborhood are very common and house many of the politicians working just a few blocks away at the Capitol building. The space is a studio with a separate kitchen and can sleep up to four guests (approximately 600 sq feet). We have an organic Naturepedic queen bed, a sleeper sofa and a portable crib available. You'll have access to the entire apartment, it's all yours. We have a keyless door lock so check-in is a breeze and you won't have to worry about keys because there are none! Street parking is available and we can provide you with a visitor pass upon request. We love living on Capitol Hill and will make sure that you love your time here. We'd be happy to share our recommendations, tips, and help in any other way. We live upstairs with our three young kids in a completely separate unit, but you will probably hear little footsteps from time to time. We have three kids and rarely use our car so we chose to live in what we think is the most convenient, walkable, and family friendly neighborhood in Washington, DC. We love it and some of our favorite activities are: visiting Eastern Market and the shops and restaurants nearby, taking a short ride on the metro to enjoy the Smithsonian museums, going to one of the two playgrounds within a block of our house, exploring the new waterfront neighborhood with the baseball stadium, or just walking or biking around our neighborhood to look at the beautiful historic rowhouses. It's a quiet, charming neighborhood that's convenient for locals, tourists and business travelers. Eastern Market metro stop is about 3 blocks away and the Capitol South metro stop is about 4 blocks away. There's a bikeshare station a block away, which is a great way to see the city. We're easy to get to from Union Station or the airport, either by metro or taxi. Street parking is available and we can provide you with a visitor pass upon request. Also, there is a corner market only a few steps from our house that has a very good selection of the essentials. Instead of cable TV we have a Roku with Netflix and wifi access. Enjoy many of the free shows and movies or log into your own Amazon or Hulu account to stream. We also have a digital antenna, which gets all major networks (reception varies), and a DVD player.

The SpaceThe Eastern Market neighborhood holds lovely historic homes, exciting new restaurants, and easy access by car, metro, bus, or bike to all areas of the city. The fully furnished apartment is ready to host you! Private Basement has one bedroom with a full sized bed that is 8.5' x 10', not including a good sized closet. No more than 4 people at a time in the apartment, and even then it can be a bit snug. The living room/ dining room/ kitchen area is 13.5' x 18' with tables and chairs and a fold out full sized couch. Central air conditioning and heating, washer/dryer, full sized bathtub, dishwasher and induction burner/ hob. All linens, plates, flatware, cutlery, cups, mugs, etc. available on-site. Private patio - can be used as off street parking. Separate entrance through alley. Please note that the sofa bed and the bed itself are full sized, so smaller than queen. We have often had guests of four adults all stay together in the apartment, and all have said it was perfectly comfortable, but please be sure that your group will be OK with full size beds. Separate entrance through the alley with a shared patio space. Enter alley either from 5th st (between 522 and 526 5th st SE) or from 6th st (between 523 and 521 6th St SE), then go north (left if entering from 5th st-- right if entering from 6th st). Large white garage door with gray painted trim is at the end of the alley. I highly recommend you see the photos to see where this is. (I'll provide the code after confirmation.) Then walk to the left side of the patio and down 3 steps to the apartment door. There is a keypad and you just need to enter the code (I'll provide at confirmation) and turn the deadbolt counter clockwise. Then walk in and make yourself comfortable! Eastern Market is the best neighborhood in the entire Washington DC area. Please check out New York times recent review of the area: (website hidden). the apartment is located right in the middle of the map at the end of the article. (The Old Gray Lady erred saying DC coffee is only "meh"-- Peregrine Coffee is amazing! The baristas win awards with their art!) It is the part of Capitol Hill that is immediately to the south and east of the Capitol and includes the Library of Congress, the Folger Shakespeare Museum, Eastern Market and the Eastern Market and South Capitol metro stops (blue and orange lines). Although it is "centrally located" it is also very quiet and residental. This is where people live in 100 year old rowhouses and play in public parks with their kids and dogs and walk and bike to school and work. If you have a smartphone during your stay and were considering taking cabs, I recommend that you download the Lyft and Uber apps to your phone before you arrive as folks really seem to prefer those over regular cabs. Uber X is another service that sounds promising and less expensive than Uber, although I have not personally used it. Two blocks from dining and bars of Barracks Row--Belga Cafe, Matchbox Pizza, Cheasapeake Room, Ted's Bulletin, Dunkin Donut, Cava Mediterranian, Starbucks, Old Siam Thai, Popeyes Fried Chicken, Taro Sushi, Chipotle, DC-7, Tandori Grill, plus Hill's Kitchen-- a cute little retain shop that is great for gifts. And, of course, the historic Marine Barracks! Rose's Luxury is considered the best new restaurant in the city, and it is only 3 blocks from the house. Two blocks south of Pennsylvania Ave. -- Mr. Henry's, Beuchart's Saloon, La Plaza, District Taco, Fresh Express and the post office, etc. For markets, 7-11 and a little corner store and a Yes! Organic Market also all 2 blocks away. Four blocks from the famous Eastern Market itself-- historic and lovely grocery! On Fresh Tuesdays farmers sell wares in front of the market, including Amish farmers with their specialties. Saturday and Sunday includes the artists and more farmers, plus the flea market across the street. Harris Teeter is the closest supermarket, 8 blocks east of the apartment. close enough to walk, but you could also take the metro from Eastern Market station to Potomac Ave. station, just one station east on the blue or orange lines. Easy freeway access off 395, just 2 blocks away. Peaceful park and small police substation across the street. The apartment is comfortable and the available off street parking is unique to the neighborhood. The neighborhood is hands down the best in the city-- I would not want to live anywhere else in the world. Metro station (Eastern Market on the Blue and Orange lines) 2 blocks away, plus several bus lines, including the very inexpensive and convenient Circulator. You can purchase metro cards ahead of time through (email hidden) and have them delivered in the mail to you so that you will be ready to go as soon as you arrive. Or you can buy cards from me or at the CVS immediately west of the Eastern Market station-- or in the station itself, if you prefer, although those will be paper cards rather than the hard "smartcards" that are sturdier. Also many guests just walk everywhere they need to go. Capitol BikeShare is another popular option! There are docking stations all over town. The closest one to the apartment is at the Eastern Market metro station. I'm not a member, so I can't speak personally to how it works. If you will have a smartphone during your stay and were considering taking cabs, I recommend that you download the Lyft and Uber apps to your phone before you arrive as folks really seem to prefer those over regular cabs. Uber X is another service that sounds promising and less expensive than Uber, although I have not personally used it. We have off street parking available-- for those that drive, we are only 2 blocks from the 295/395 freeway. Coming from the Virginia, take the 6th st exit, turn left, go past G St and immediately look for the alley entrance on the left, half way up the block. Turn left into the alley, then immediately turn right (north) and the white garage door with gray trim is at the end of the alley. If coming from Maryland-- lots of possibilities, plus lots of road construction, so I really can't say for sure. But the advice regarding entering the alley from the 500 block of 6th St SE certainly applies-- but if you are instead going to enter the alley from the 500 block of 5th St SE, then just note that you would turn left after entering the alley rather than right. If coming from the train station, guests have walked the 12 or so blocks to the apartment and enjoyed the walk (very pretty walk past Supreme Court, Capitol, Library of Congress-- when you get to Pennsylvania Ave. SE, turn left and go to 4th street SE, turn right and at the first stop light, go past the light, then immediately turn left -- it is just past the playground-- and then turn right on to 5th st SE at the Baptist church and walk half way down the block and turn left into the alley (between 522 and 526 5th street SE), then left towards the garage door at the very end of the alley. another good option is the Circulator bus. That bus arrives every 10 minutes at the train station (when you exit the station, turn right and walk to the corner with the metro station, then turn left across the street for the Circulator bus stop) and only costs $1 per person. Be sure to take the Barracks Row- Union Station Circulator. There are other routes-- very good ones for you to consider to see the other great parts of the city for not much $$, but they won't take you directly to the apartment like the Barracks Row one. Cost includes 14.5% lodging tax. We have a business license and a certificate of occupancy. 100% wind power sourced electricity. The code for the door into the apartment only works for the deadbolt. For the door handle, if you make a mistake and lock yourself out, you will need to use a key. I will explain where the key is when I provide the code to the deadbolt. The odd looking big white "box" on the floor of the bedroom houses the "sump pump" orginally installed to keep the basement from flooding. It used to make a clicking sound occasionally during heavy downpours and that was the sound of the sump pump working. Since we've had the back garden space redone with better drainage, it doesn't seem like the sump pump has been needed and no one has heard it go. Anyway, if you do hear the noise, that is a good sign and nothing to worry about, however I would appreciate it if you would let me know that you heard it work as I am tempted to just take it out to make more room in the bedroom. In the meanwhile, the box is a handy place to put suitcases, etc. We love feedback!! Especially regarding transportation and restaurants as we have a rather limited and established routine regarding these things! Future guests will deeply appreciate whatever "lessons learned" you have to share and the diverse perspective of past guests vs. just me! Guest has access through the alley entrance, where the patio/car park is at the back of the house. The apartment is down 3 steps. In addition to the bed and fold out sofa the apartment has wifi, TV with a Roku, washer and dryer, kitchen with refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave with convection oven, induction burner, coffee maker and a "Geoge Foreman" grill-- great for toasting bagel, etc. All the plate, glasses, silverware, skillets, pots, etc. you need are in the apartment kitchen. Both parents work outside the home, however, we work close by so if you need something while we are at work, we can come home to help. Also, my mother lives close by and the neighbors are AMAZING! We have been doing airbnb for a long time and we find it works best to follow the lead of the guests regarding interaction. If you want to chat, we love it! We are happy to talk about anything and everything! If you want privacy-- totally get that and we will stay out of your way. I love this neighborhood!!!! We have amazing restaurants! History! Metro is 2 blocks away, bus lines 2 blocks away, capital bikeshare station 2 blocks away, freeway access blocks away. Yet it is a true neighborhood, with people of all ages and backgrounds living here. I would not want to live anywhere else in the world. If you come here you should certainly go to Eastern Market, the gorgeous historic grocery store 5 blocks away. Also go to the great restaurants on Barracks Row-- Matchbox and Ted's Bulletin are 2 blocks away-- the famous Rose's Luxury is 3 blocks away. So you can line up to put your name in at 5, then come home and mix yourself a cocktail then walk back over when your table is ready. (The reason the best new restaurant in America doesn't take reservations is just for this scenario!) Metro station (Eastern Market on the Blue and Orange lines) 2 blocks away, plus several bus lines, including the very inexpensive and convenient Circulator.

Other Things to NoteCost includes 14.5% lodging tax. We have a business license and a certificate of occupancy. 100% wind power sourced electricity. The code for the door into the apartment only works for the deadbolt. For the door handle, if you make a mistake and lock yourself out, you will need to use a key. Please remind me to show you where the key is if you think you may lock yourself out. If you lock yourself out accidentily, please call me and I'll unlock the door. The odd looking big white "box" on the floor of the bedroom houses the "sump pump" orginally installed to keep the basement from flooding. It used to make a clicking sound occasionally during heavy downpours and that was the sound of the sump pump working. Since we've had the back garden space redone with better drainage, it doesn't seem like the sump pump has been needed and no one has heard it go. Anyway, if you do hear the noise, that is a good sign and nothing to worry about, however I would appreciate it if you would let me know that you heard it work as I am tempted to just take it out to make more room in the bedroom. In the meanwhile, the box is a handy place to put suitcases, etc. We love feedback!! Especially regarding transportation and restaurants as we have a rather limited and established routine regarding these things! Future guests will deeply appreciate whatever "lessons learned" you have to share and the diverse perspective of past guests vs. just me!
