“Wonderful home away from home”

This apartment is absolutely as represented on Trip Advisor. It really is that close to Eastern Market Metro station (which is perfect for a tourist to get to many of the sights in Washington D.C. and also great if you are flying into/out of Reagan National Airport). The pictures accurately reflect what is a quality apartment.

We stayed here for 6 nights and just loved it - it was relaxing and very comfortable and had so many eating choices close by (mostly on the street behind) that we were spoilt for choice. This apartment is on the top floor (2nd floor by US counting) and there is another apartment below on the ground floor and also a basement apartment (not sure if it is also available or not). We had no noise issues other than on our last night when we could clearly hear a crying baby in the apartment below (it was only visiting) and also hear one of the occupants below having a telephone conversation from our bedroom.

There is no dining room, but there is a table in the kitchen that seats 3 (total number of stools) and we found it perfect for our needs. The lounge is spacious and very comfortable. The kitchen is well appointed and the stove was fantastic. The washer and clothes dryer are in the kitchen (out of sight in a cupboard) and they were perfect for us at the end of a long trip.

Another reviewer has said the bed was small, but we found it more than large enough for a couple and quite comfortable. Best of all it is in its own bedroom.

This apartment was so much more comfortable, spacious and relaxing than staying in a hotel room or even a B&B because. It was our home away from home.

Kirk the owner was so helpful and so responsive to our emails both before and after booking - a real pleasure to deal with throughout!

The only negative is that this is the upstairs apartment and the stairs leading up to it are a bit narrow and steep when you are carrying your bags up or down. This was not an issue for us, however, but you do need to be aware of it.

If we come back to Washington DC, there is nowhere else we would consider staying.

We needed a rental for quick weekend pre business meeting trip. We were 3 ladies, all coworker friends who had traveled together before and I decided to check trip advisor's vacation rentals when I fouod this: 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom 2nd floor apt in a fully restored Victorian on Capital Hill, very affordable for th rewicker couch, ceiling fan, big tree and a grassy yard below. Kirk is a wonderful host, provided directions, advice, and provided info on the apt and all it's charm. We stayed for two nights, it was warm outside but cooler at night on the porch. We didn't want to leave. Could have easily stayed for a week! We strolled around the streets, had dinner at open air restaurants (medium rare has a killer spicy meatball pizza and also the apple candied pecan salad, best salad ever)
With the combination of the beautiful, comfortable apt, historical quaint surroundings, proximity to the capital, all of the monuments, museums and restaurants, the metro, the buses, in cooler temps, I would have hiked more, Eastern Market (similar to Fanuiel Hall) and the patio, this is the place to stay.

“Exceptional”

Exceptional. This is a very sympathetically restored late 1800's property by Kirk and his "design advisor" (as Kirk calls that person) and from the entrance hall you know you are in for an experience. This is a very spacious apartment, well fitted out and with excellent period furniture, superb wooden floors and complimenting modern art. And very quiet. But as important is its location. All the restaurants,shops and stores in the next street, 3 minutes walk from the metro station, 15 minute walk from the Capitol. And liquid refreshment hostelries on the way!
Kirk is obviously and rightly proud of what he offers. And so helpful in all his advice and links to useful websites. Take time to go to the market. Well worth it.

This house really is that close to the metro line,so great for getting around. Shops and restaurants everywhere. The owner goes out of his way to help you. The only reason it didn't rate higher was the bed was smalll and for us that matters.

“Fantastic location, lovely apartment”
Reviewed 25 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Apartment is lovely and the balcony a bonus with the hot weather we encountered. Everything you need is there. Kirk was friendly and helpful. The location was brilliant - so handy to everything. So many shops and restaurants in walking distance and the metro just down the road yet street itself was peaceful and quiet.
