Peak bloom for the 2017 Cherry Blossom season has not yet been announced. Scroll down to the * to read dates, details and activities.

An oasis in a quiet enclave of a big city. Set in the city's historic Capitol Hill region

GENERAL DETAILS:

• Sleeps up to 5

• 22-minute walk to/from The US Capitol Building

• 15-minute walk to/from Union Station

• 2-minute walk to/from Metro's Red Line

• Restaurants, bars and family activities easily accessed on foot, bike or by car (including taxis)

• Dog-friendly

THE FLAT:

This 1910 row house was completely renovated in early 2015. At Cari's in the City, we provide an opportunity for our visitors to stay in our 2-bedroom flat -- a private access apartment.

• One BD with a queen-sized bed, full bath, closet and dresser.

• One BD king-sized bed (perfect for a couple) converts from a Mid-Century style couch. Couch can also convert to 2 twin-beds (perfect for kids); full bath, dresser, closet.

• Coat closet in the hallway

• Full kitchen/dining and living/sleeping area (mid-century couch converts to a twin+ bed for 5th guest. Note: 5th guest requires an additional $25/night fee).

• Flat screen/wall-mounted TV with Apple-TV in the living kitchen area.

• Flat screen/wall-mounted TV with Apple-TV, PS4 and BlueRay player.

• W/D, including detergents and laundry extra.

The entire flat sleeps 4 to 5 (with two people/bedroom). The 1st bedroom has a small window. The second bedroom provides additional space and morning sunlight with a view of the courtyard and back garden.

THE NEIGHBORHOOD:

Capitol Hill's H Street Corridor (and adjacent NoMa -- North of Massachusetts) is an area rediscovered: for its history, its nuance, its tradition and its "neighborhoodness." The area has bragging rights to unprecedented change and improvement: from new, award winning restaurants (such as Ethiopiac), as well as much raved about food establishments (such as the famous, Ben's Chili Bowl), to redevelopments, such as the U-line (home to the first U.S. Beatles concert) and Union Market. And, all of it is centrally located on the Red Line while within walking/biking distance (there are two Capital Bike Share stands within a three block walk of the house) of The Capitol, Eastern Market, Gallery Place (National Gallery)/China Town (including the Verizon Center), Nationals Park and the Smithsonians -- though you won't want to leave the H Street Corridor!

GUEST ACCESS:

Guests will have a private entrance with a keyless entry as well as a view of the back patio garden from the back bedroom. The back garden may also be available for use (upon prior discussion and arrangements). Guests will have use of wireless internet (code provided), w/d, Apple TV and a video game system in the second bedroom. We want all guests to feel at home!

DOG FRIENDLY FLAT:

Bring dogs when and if you can! We have a list of fantastic dog walkers (should you be out for the whole day) and one of the best dog stores in the city is three blocks away, so Fido will have fun, too. There will, of course, be a dog-friendly fee ($25/dog for the length of the stay) in case of accidents/damage. However, we are 100% fans of all dogs!

PERKS:

• Free use for one of a Capital Bike Share bike (usage over the allotted 30-minute per ride will incur additional fees; in addition, those failing to return the fob will be upcharged).

• French Press coffee maker and award winning, gourmet coffee beans. For those who prefer tea, there is a selection of teas.

• The full kitchen allows for home cooking (there are two supermarkets within a 8 block radius).

5-STAR FAMILY & DOG FRIENDLY!

THE SPACE

This 1910 rowhouse was completely renovated in 2014, debuting in 2015. Located in a neighborhood that is swiftly becoming DC's "it" neighborhood, the rowhouse was chronicled in the Washington Post Sunday Home & Design Issue in April 2015, penned by your host, Cari Shane.

While we are new to VRBO, our 5-star listing has made us "Super Hosts" on a competing listing site (which we cannot mention here).

At Cari's in the City, you will be greeted by a professionally cleaned home with fresh linens. We expect you to treat your home away from home with respect.There is absolutely no smoking tolerated.

GUEST ACCESS

At Cari's in the City, we provide an opportunity for our visitors to stay in our 2-bedroom private access flat with 2-bedrooms and 2-private bathrooms. Room 1 sports a queen-sized bed, full bath, closet/dresser; Room 2 has a funky Mid-Century couch that converts into 3 different bed styles: king bed; 2-twin beds with a table in between; 1-twin, 1-swivel chair and table. Or, instead of a couch, 2-swivel chairs with a table. The room also has a full bath, closet/dresser and a wall mounted TV with Apple TV, Blue Ray and PS4. There is a full kitchen/dining and living/sleeping area, a flat screen/wall-mounted TV (with Apple-TV link) and W/D (with detergents, iron, etc.). The flat sleeps up to 5 (with 2/bedroom). A funky couch in the living area easily converts into a twin-size+ bed. Please note: the 5th guest requires an additional fee of $25/night.

THE NEIGHBORHOOD

The H Street Corridor (and adjacent NoMa -- North of Massachusetts) is an area rediscovered: for its history, its nuance, its tradition and its "neighborhoodness." The area has bragging rights to unprecedented change and improvement: from new, award winning restaurants (made popular by presidents as well as members of Congress and correspondents who work at nearby CNN and NPR) as well as much raved about food establishments including 6 of the top 100 within walking distance. We have the famous, Ben's Chili Bowl, the new U-line development to open in September 2016 (home to the first U.S. Beatles concert) and much raved about Union Market. And, all of it is centrally located on the Red Line while within walking/biking distance (there are 2-Capital Bike Share stands within a 3-block walk of the house) of The Capitol (25-min walk), Eastern Market (25-min walk), Gallery Place (National Gallery)/China Town (including the Verizon Center) (30-min walk), Nationals Park (15-min bike ride) and the Smithsonians (45-min walk) -- though you won't want to leave the H Street Corridor!

The neighborhood has and IS everything that is wonderful about a small neighborhood in a big city. It has personality, history, convenience, entertainment, food and fantastic transportation options, including the new H Street Trolley. The flat is 3-blocks from two different supermarkets -- the gourmet Harris Teeter and the local Giant. For transportation convenience, the flat is two blocks from the Red Line, the most used line in the DC Metro system, a 15-min walk from Union Station and a 15-min drive from National Airport; 35-min from BWI.

DOG FRIENDLY

We want all guests to feel at home! That means you should bring dogs when and if you can! I have a list of fantastic dog walkers (should you be out for the whole day) and one of the best dog stores in the city is 3-blocks away, so Fido will have fun, too. There will, of course, be a dog-friendly fee in case of accidents/damage. We charge a $25/dog pet fee for the length of your stay.

EASY ACCESS

No keys to pick up: Guests will have a private entrance with a keyless entry. The code will be provided prior to arrival.

GARDEN & AMENITIES

The back garden may also be available for use (upon prior arangement and additional fee).

Guests will have use of wireless internet (code provided), W/D, 2-TVs connected to Apple TV, a PS4 video game system with Blue Ray.

PERKS DURING YOUR STAY

I also provide a number of perks such as free use for one of a Capital Bike Share bike (usage over the allotted 30-min/ride will incur additional fees; in addition, those failing to return the fob will be upcharged), a French Press coffee maker and award winning, gourmet coffee beans. For those who prefer tea, there is a selection of teas. The full kitchen allows for home cooking (there are two supermarkets within a 8 block radius).

FALL IN LOVE WITH DC

It is my mission to have visitors fall in love with DC at any time of year. I will do everything I can to help make your stay comfortable, fun, enriching and to fill you with such a long list of things to do that you have to come back for another (many) visits!

NOT WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBLE

There are steps required to access the flat; while a wheelchair cannot navigate inside the bathroom, the apartment itself has no internal stairs.

If you have any special requests, please let me know so I can do my best to make your stay in the nation's Capital even better!
