Character and charm are abound in this newly renovated 1 bedroom, 1 bath English basement apartment. In the heart of Capitol Hill, we have the best of urban living with a friendly neighborhood feel.
Located in a 1906 Victorian Rowhouse, this spacious and newly finished 1 bedroom apartment is ideally situated to take advantage of all the Capitol has to offer. This LEGAL apartment was completely refinished in 2014 with all the amenities you will need during your stay.
The bedroom is situated in the back of the home and features a queen-sized bed, dresser, full-length mirror, and large closet.
The open concept living, dining, and kitchen area creates a spacious living space that also accommodates 2 additional guests on a queen-sized pull out couch. You'll also have direct access to a large walk in closet near the entryway.
The living room features a large flat screen TV with full cable (including HBO, Showtime, Cinemax, and Starz), DVD player (with a large selection of DVDs), and free wi-fi access.
This completely renovated, large kitchen features white beadbord cabinets, expansive granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and an eat-at bar. All appliances are full sized and include refrigerator, electric stove, dishwasher, microwave, coffee-maker, teapot, and toaster. We've stocked the kitchen with pots, pans, plates, glasses, wineglasses, bowls, utensils, and even a slow cooker. Coffee, tea, hot chocolate, sugar, sweetener, and basic spices are provided for your convenience.

Interaction with guests
We like to give our guests privacy, but if you are in need of anything, we encourage you to let us know.
Other things to note
This is a 100+ year old urban apartment, and while it is generally quiet, some noise from the neighbors and upstairs can't be avoided. Occasional street noise can be heard in the main room, but the bedroom is very quiet and cozy.
No smoking in the apartment or on the property.
Sorry, use of the back yard is for owners only.
Although we do not charge for extra guests, we can only accommodate 4 people total. Please no more than 4 overnight guests.
We will contact you the day prior to your arrival with instructions on how to obtain the key and other pertinent information.
Our check in time is 4:00 PM and our check out time is 11:00 AM. If you need to arrive early or depart late, you must coordinate with us ahead of time. We try to accommodate all requests, but we also need to allow sufficient time for the cleaning crew to work their magic.
We respond best to email, and please let us know if you have any special requests. We want to make sure you enjoy your stay in Capitol Hill!

Steve is an Assistant Principal at a local middle school and Stephanie works for the federal government. We have two dogs, Lily and Charlie, both Jack Russell mixes, who are always happy to meet new people. We've lived in the DC area since 2006 and on Capitol Hill since 2012. We spent the first year on the Hill renovating our 1906 rowhouse and are excited to welcome guests now that the renovation is complete.
