    Washington DC
    Condo/Apartment – 
    2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4
    This charming property is not an apartment - it's a small house, set in a perfect location three blocks to the US Capitol grounds.

    Built in the 1880s, this structure is a two story two bedroom carriage house. These are historic structures, originally built to house horses and carriages .

    There are very few of these left. It's a nearly unique short term stay experience.

    The location is ideal. It is directly off grand East Capitol Street, in a highly sought after area. Due to it's closeness to the Capitol it has fantastic Federal police presence.

    It's half a block to two corner stores, a pharmacy, and a great local diner.

    Five blocks to two different metro lines. One half block to Capital Bikeshare (rent bikes by the hour).

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We loved working with Brian who was on top of every detail in the design of this place and the process of booking it! The location was close to The Capital, markets, metro and the train station. We had everything we could need for our five day stay. The heated marble floors, expansive Direct TV, Stainless appliances in the kitchen and great cookware made it feel like home away from home for our stay in DC. If we make it back we will check availability here first. more

This gorgeous carriage house apartment was everything we hoped for and more. It oozed historical charm and yet had every modern convenience. The furnishings were upscale and tasteful, and the beautiful kitchen was stocked with every pot, pan, and kitchen gadget you might need to cook. The living room furniture was very comfortable, as was the bed. Had the weather been better we would have spent time outdoors in the beautiful courtyard. The owner was wonderful to work with, and provided a great welcome book of helpful info about the apartment and the area. He responded immediately when a sink wouldn't drain well, and had it fixed within hours. The location near the Capitol and Supreme Court was amazing, and the neighborhood itself was a beautiful mix of restored homes. An easy 5-6 block walk got you to one of three nearby metro stops. We hated to leave this home away from home! more
