Prime Capitol Hill Location 2 Bedroom 2 Full Bath!
This spacious 2 bedroom apartment has 2 full bathrooms and has been a big hit since joining our listings.
506 1/2 A St S.E. is perfectly located on the "House side" of Capitol Hill and just a 5 minute walk from the U. S. Capitol, Library of Congress, U. S. Supreme Court and many of the House and Senate office buildings. This location is in year-round demand and properties here typically rent well in advance of the season. Whether you are a power broker coming to lobby, a vacationer visiting our nation's historic capital city or a new member of Congress you will appreciate this Capitol Hill seat-of-power location!
This inviting property is situated on the ground floor of one Capitol Hill's magnificent Edwardian townhouses and boasts its own private secure entrance and garden patio.
You will love walking to nearby Eastern Market or Barracks Row just a few short blocks away to buy provisions or perhaps to take advantage of the many taverns, restaurants and specialty shops. And you don't have to be lucky to spot the "Who's Who" of Washington as they are frequent patrons here, too.

Whether you want to watch TV, quietly read a book or hang out at the breakfast bar and enjoy a glass while preparing a meal in the upgraded fully appointed kitchen, there is something here for everyone! There are wonderful work areas where you can cruise the Internet as you plot your next day’s moves and activities, or prepare your last minute notes before meetings, briefings or other high-stakes activities.
Here you will find a tastefully designed mixture of modern and traditional furnishings making this a warm and inviting place to spend time or to entertain. There are two bedrooms with two spacious full bathrooms. One of the showers accommodates a wheelchair, steps are required in order to access the apt. Additional sleeping capacity is provided by a comfortable queen-sized convertible couch in the living room by or a separate air mattress which can be placed on the living area floor...an instant fun kid’s slumber party.
There is a private garden patio right outside the door where you can relax to enjoy some of Washington's fine weather, dine al fresco or to simply reflect on all the sights, sounds and experiences of your D.C. adventures.

“Cute apartment, great location, lovely neighborhood”

My sister and I stayed at this apartment for 4 nights while on vacation. Location in quiet neighborhood, close to Eastern Market Metro station, with several restaurants within close walking distance. Kitchen was nicely appointed, but could use a cutting board and a replacement of the non-stick skillets. We each had our own bedroom and bathroom. The back bathroom is a little tricky since there is no enclosure - be sure and bring flip flops/shower shoes. The only thing that we did not like about the apartment were the bathroom towels - all thin Turkish linen, and no facecloths. The apartment worked out perfectly for us to get to all of the museums, monuments and other sightseeing things, then return for a glass of wine before dinner. We'd recommend and stay here again.

This VRBO offered all the conveniences of home and more! Easy acceess to dining, sites and Metro. Great location to get almost anywhere on Capital Hill. Georgetown requires a taxi. (we used Uber) Tons of dining options or shop for "ingredients" at the Eastern Market. We would definitely use the apartment for another visit.

The Capitol Hill apartment was a real home away from home. The facilities were excellent. The owners were most helpful and Paul was very accommodating when we needed a few extra hours to pack up. The location was great - within walking distance to many Washington attractions.

We stayed for a couple of days in early July. This is truly a home away from home. Great location within walking distance to many of the main sites and attractions. The apartment was spacious and comfortable with lots of great little touches that made you feel at home. It was perfect for our family of five.
“Thank-you Cliff and Steven for the wonderful apartment!”

This wonderful apartment was perfect for two adult couples traveling together and beyond what is advertised! We stayed for 5 nights in January 2013. The area is very nice with grocery, liquor, the Eastern Market and metro near by. Union Station is just 10 blocks away with access to the Hop on Hop off buses and Trolley. The apartment itself was beautiful, clean, roomy, very warm with the heated floors (what a pleasure), curbless shower, turkish towels, granite counters and fully appointed kitchen (I think there were more appliances then I have at home) and washer and dryer. Internet access and cell phone reception was perfect , although you may think about posting the access information in the apt. so we don't have to call for it. Furnishings were very comfortable. The bed was a little too soft for me and my husband, however, that is a personal choice. Cliff and Steven were very responsive to our calls before and during our stay, notifying us the internet had gone down before we even knew it (thank-you for the Champagne Steven). We lacked for nothing except maybe a scrubby and an iron :0). We readily recommend this apt. to anyone staying in Wa DC.
