About Gene Pecar

I am a military officer and pilot as well as a real estate professional. I have extensive travel experience and understand the nuances associated with creating a comfortable and memorable experience in our nation's capitol.

I am also a Washingtonian and live nearby. I have a very in depth knowledge of all that Washington DC has to offer and am happy to provide any recommendations to make your stay more enjoyable.

Why Gene Pecar chose Washington DC

Since being built in 1880 numerous Senators, Congressmen, artists, and academics have all resided at what is now Hill Flats.

The building was previously used as a lecture hall and residence for scholars conducting research at the Library of Congress which is across the street.

Due to the buildings immediate proximity to national monuments, the National Park Service and Washington DC has designated Hill Flats a Historic building and has registered it under the Capitol Overlay and Fine Arts District. This designation ensures that all preservation is conducted under the direction of the Architect of the Capitol.

Hill Flats has been meticulously preserved while ensuring that it meets modern comforts.

If you are looking for character and historic charm there is no substitute.

We loved every minute of our stay in this Historic 1880 Brownstone. Our family of 5 had plenty of room to spread out. We were within an easy walk of the Library of Congress (right across the street), the Capitol, many restaurants and the Metro. We used the Metro routinely to get to the opposite side of the National Mall and getting to Arlington National Cemetery and to and from the airport. Very easy to use and understand. We had no issues riding the Metro, in fact, the kids loved it. This rental is on a beautiful street lined with historic homes.

I would recommend this home for families, but not couples. The bathroom is only accessible by walking through the master bedroom. Not a problem for most families, but may be uncomfortable if sharing with other couples.

The property was clean and well-maintained. It's the perfect blend of historic and modern. The original fireplaces, wall art and overall feel is very historic and exactly what we were looking for in a rental for this trip. The kitchen is very modern which was lovely as well.

The owner provided excellent customer service. He responded quickly to all the questions we had in advance and gave us some great tips and info ahead of our trip.

Excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

The location was great, about a mile from Union Station. Our family of five enjoyed our stay and walked everywhere from the Capitol to the White House. Great restaurants nearby, I recommend getting pizza and beer from We the Pizza. A small market is located right around the corner with snacks, personal items, beer, wine, etc. We plan on returning to DC in the future, and hope to return to Hill Flats!

Enjoyable experience!

  • 5 of 5

Prime location , roomy, good parking, short walks to shops, cafes, etc A bench out front would be nice in nice weather or before sunset and a few short cocktails glasses. Beautiful wine glasses. Gorgeous kitchen and up to date TVs were enjoyable. Superb maid service. Extremely clean. A lamp in living room could be helpful. Very nice bathroom. Fine Uber service from 3rd street. Other guests were very pleasant.

Perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

We parked our car hehind the unit our first night and never touched it until we checked out. We walked everywhere! So convenient for touring all the monuments & national mall. The Capitol is only 2 blocks away and from there you can jump on the Circulator bus that loops the mall for only $1 per ride. The neighborhood was great & we always felt safe walking especially with the Capitol police presence. The corner market was literally right around the corner & had all the necessities. Capitol Hill Baptist church is just past the corner market (2 blocks from the unit). We had a wonderful worship service there--a highlight of our trip! We The Pizza & Starbucks 2 blocks the opposite direction. The apartment was clean & updated. Kitchen had everything we needed. Everything on same level. The only hassle is going through bedrooms to get to the one bathroom. I would stay here again. Great location for a DC visit!
