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.

Excellent place to stay on visit to Washington! We will recommend it to anyone we know going there!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Washington in June with our 7 year old grandson, due in large part to Mr. Pecar's great Brownstone, its location, and his excellent recommendations as to places to eat! Each day after returning from various exciting sights in Washington along with MANY other people, we would turn the corner and immediately be transported into the quiet atmosphere of a tree-lined neighborhood street with pretty gardens behind wrought iron fences. Our first evening we tried WE pizza which was delicious! The next morning after breakfast at Teds Bulletin (we highly recommend Teds and ate breakfast there each day), we walked back to the apartment and our grandson spied them tossing the pizza dough at WE for the day's pizza and stopped to watch. With an audience the chef was only too happy to perform, tossing the dough and flipping it over and over much to our grandson's delight! After attempting to walk everywhere our first day, we used Uber the rest of our stay and found it an efficient and economical way to travel. One of our outings was to the Library of Congress, just a few steps away, which we really enjoyed. If you are traveling with children be sure to check out the children's library there. It was great! Many thanks to Mr. Pecar for all the great suggestions and the use of his very clean and well-maintained apartment!

Perfect location, historic feel

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 3 stayed here and it provided the perfect location for us to walk to many venues. Nice neighborhood with excellent pizza place 2 blocks down. Very quiet street which was surprising considering how close it is to the Library of Congress, Capitol Building and Supreme Court. The owner was easy to work with and very professional. We enjoyed our visit.

Amazing location in historic area!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this wonderful apartment. Although a little tight at times for three people, we managed quite well. We were provided with everything we needed and the beds were very comfortable. We would highly recommend this property for a great stay in DC.

Spectacular Location

  • 5 of 5

Owner was efficient and very easy to work with throughout the whole process. Location was perfect. Restaurants, bars and groceries all within easy walking distance. Property could not have been in a better location to access all of the attractions/Memorials/Smithsonian by foot (bring your walking shoes). Felt safe walking at all hours with wife and two kids. We could not see everything in the time we were there and look forward to visiting again soon and staying in the same location!!
