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.

Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

Worked wonderful for our family of 4. The location was ideal for DC adventures. Easy access to the owner if there were any concerns. Everything we needed was there. The comfort of the beds were not ideal (super hard mattress in the middle room) but acceptable for short term.

Location! Good spot for close friends/family

  • 4 of 5

Overall great place but naturally has its pros and cons you should be aware of:

Cons first:

With a long floorplan and no hallway, the bathroom is far (through 2 of the bedrooms) from the living area. Privacy is at a minimum.

The water pressure and hot water in the bathroom is also pretty lacking and there is a minor teeny tiny ant community.

The living room pull out bed is terrible but there are two air mattresses that are very easy to inflate/deflate although one has a minor leak. Just go straight for the blue one.

Walls and floors are very thin so anyone staying in the building can be heard as if they are in the apartment with you. Luckily we were probably up the latest and on the first floor but best advice is to leave shoes off and stick to normal sleeping hours.

Pros:

It is an amazing location! The National Mall is pretty much your front yard and its within walking distance to Eastern Market and lots of other foodie streets. Wherever you are in the city, the Capitol dome is your north star and the city is very walkable.

Everything in the apartment is clean and good quality. Softest white sheets and down pillows/comforters. Plenty of dishes and appliances to feel like home. Gas stove and sharp knives!? Never happens in a rental. That was great.

We were here in the winter but it was perfectly comfortable without us even finding a thermostat. There are air conditioning units all over the place so I'm sure it would even be perfect in the hot swampy dc summers.

Overall, it's a great place for young people to stay and really experience DC. Even families with older kids, as long as everyone is close enough to not require much privacy and can manage to keep the noise down and/or sleep heavily. Get your steps in and walk to Lincoln and back, make yourself a drink and pretend you are in House of Cards.

Owner's Response: Caren, We replaced the bed today, Friday 4/21/2017 in the middle room with a brand new frame and brand new mattress that had 5 star ratings online. In terms of the noise, we have added 3 noise machines to the unit. We are planning to install new drywall and carpeting in the later half of 2017. We appreciate your feedback as we are always trying to improve! Please come again! Thanks, Gene

Absolutely great place and location for a trip to Washington

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time staying at this location. Our flat was nicely furnished and we loved the feel of the old brownstone. Had everything we needed. Nicely appointed and very clean. Can't say enough about the location being so close to the capital building and then within walking distance to almost everything. Definitely would stay again.

Clean, well kept, great location

  • 3 of 5

Overall, we had a good stay in DC.

We really appreciated the convenience of booking, payment and check in. Everything went smoothly, and the HomeAway portal gave a lot of good helpful information. All the information we received was clear and well organized.

Checkout was also easy, and we appreciated not having to do significant cleaning on our own.

The apartment was in a great area, safe for walking at all times of day, and convenient to food (breakfast, lunch and dinner options) and a reasonable (10-15 min) walk to the metro.

The apartment itself was well stocked and clean. We had everything we needed for the 5 day stay.

We had few complaints, but both mean we likely would not stay again. Our only complaints were the following:

1. Beds: The beds were not good. One of the 3 beds is an actual bed, and 2 pullout couches. The couch in the living room was particularly bad. One guest had to sleep facing in reverse because of the slant of the mattress. The second pull-out couch was very hard.

2. Layout: The living room connects to the kitchen (and has a pullout door), and the kitchen connects to the first bedroom (with pullout couch) and that bedroom connects to the back bedroom (no door) and the bathroom is at the back. Since there was not a door between the back two rooms it created a lack of privacy that we weren't expecting. Also, it was awkward to have to go through 2 bedrooms to get to the bathroom. This may not be an important detail for all guests, but it would have been helpful to know this in advance.

Owner's Response: Kristen, Thanks for your feedback. I really appreciate it. While the mattresses you complain about have been replaced with new ones, we still advise people to either read the information package in the living room or simply reach out if you do not understand how to work the air mattresses or pullout couches. They are easy once you understand what you dealing with. We are considering posting floor so there are no miscommunications. Thanks again! Hill Flats

Wonderful Brownstone

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was in a great location for exploring Washington DC. The apartment was clean and tidy although very old. The communication was very good in regards to any questions I had and the check-in proceedure was easy. Would recommend.
