Perks for the Parents

This stylish Capitol Hill row-house is fully toddler and baby-proofed and is walking distance to shops, bars, restaurants and parks. It sleeps 6 adults comfortably, plus up to 4 babies or toddlers (2 in cribs and 2 in travel cribs). The first-floor living room has plenty of space for playing. The self-contained apartment in the basement with a bathroom and kitchenette is perfect for extended family or a nanny. The off-street parking right out back is useful as street parking on Capitol Hill can be a challenge. But a car is not necessary to enjoy your stay: the house is just a 15 minute walk to Barracks Row, home to some of DC’s best restaurants, and to the Metro. Convenient buses a block away will to take you to other parts of the city, including the free museums that will keep the kids entertained.

There are baby-gates at top and bottom of all stairs, outlet covers, cabinet locks to keep kids safe, while the kitchen has guards on all the doors and drawers (including the oven). The family dining table includes 2 high chairs. There is a kids’ table for coloring and crafts and toys and books galore throughout the house, including those in the carpeted basement decorated with cheerful decals. The patio is a fun play area for small children and the back gate allows for easy stroller access. Lincoln Park with 2 playgrounds is a block away.

Things to Know

Style Notes

Family-friendly with classic style. This row-house dates from 1907 and boasts high ceilings, chandeliers, wood floors and gorgeous period fireplaces. And yet, this is a family home and is fully adapted to a vibrant family life with 2 small children. A spacious granite kitchen with a Viking gas stove and 2 sinks is open plan to a dining area for easy family meals. The refurbished basement apartment has new carpet and a contemporary bathroom. We love the kids’ room with soft gray cribs and duck egg blue easy chair and the cozy anteroom set up for reading; the book-lined, light-filled living room and the sleek, cheerful family bathroom.

Hi! My wife and I live in Washington DC but we are from Ukraine and the UK respectively. We are looking to explore the world with our twins and give other families an opportunity to enjoy DC and our lovely home. Cheers, Paul.

The Smithsonian and beyond

Space rockets, giant pandas and spy disguises are just a handful of the things you can discover with the kids in DC. From the National Air and Space Museum to the Natural History museum, the International Spy Museum and the National Building Museum, there is no shortage of culture and history here, and most of these spots are both free and interactive, allowing tots to get fully involved. Don’t miss the National Mall (ideal by bike), and the city’s events - from the National Cherry Blossom Festival to Cinco de Mayo, there’s at least one blockbuster event per month bringing the city to life.
