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. 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 October 24, 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.

“Relaxing with the best location at the same time”

We stayed here for 6 nights and loved it. The best part is the deck which overlooks grass and is shaded by trees. The insidet is beautiful and big. A large living room overlooks the neighborhood and the kitchen has high end appliances. We do cook meals during our stays and enjoyed the Viking stove. There is a Safeway store one Metro stop down from the Eastern Market stop to shop for groceries as well as smaller stores close by. The Eastern Market is open daily and grows on the weekend. A must visit.
We took the Metro everyday which took us steps from everything we wanted to visit. A cab call took us to the Big Bus night tour which should not be missed. This place is located in a neighborhood of real people which we enjoy. One of them invited us over for a glass of wine. You cannot find a better place to stay. We loved it! And Kirk was a phone call away for questions.

“Great Location, Great Comfort”

We recently had a fantastic stay at this flat. The description provided accurately describes the great location. The Eastern Market Metro station is a short walk away, and 8th Street with a number of highly rated Capital Hill restaurants is 1 block away. Starbucks and Dunkin 5 min walk. The flat itself is roomy, with a comfortable sitting room with soft comfy couch and chairs is great for unwinding after along day sightseeing. Nice sized bedroom with a high grade queen bed and plenty of storage space. Kitchen has top of the line appliances, professional grade and all the cooking instruments you will need. A deck is included for good weather with a nice view to the east. You could be comfortable here for a 1 week stay or for a 6 month stay. The landlord was very helpful with info on he area and coming to our rescue when we had an old folks moment with the TV and thermostat. Very professional. Only downside is a tight narrow stairway from the ground floor, so those with mobility problems or giant luggage may want to talk to the landlord first.

We were looking for somewhere to stay in walking distance of everything we wanted to see (i.e. the Mall) while still being comfortable and reasonably priced for the three of us, and this place was everything we hoped for. Two in the main bedroom and one on a sofa couch was no issues, especially with the living room having its own door. The place itself was beautiful, and providing a fully functioning kitchen plus laundry facilities was the icing on the cake.
