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.

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.

What makes this apartment unique

Incredible architecture and historic charm in an unbeatable location.

Loved our 2nd Stay!

  • 4 of 5

Great place! We love not only the place it's self, but also it's location. The place is as described, a little on the small side for an extended stay, however has everything you need. The kitchen is small, however the refrigerator and stove are normal size and had the essential pots and pans for cooking your own meals. The only two things that even remotely seemed to be missing were a dish rag of sorts. Dish towels and sponges were there, however no dishcloth for wiping down the stove or counter tops and doing the dishes. Thank goodness for pull tap diced tomatoes, we did not find a can opener. There was a bottle opener. Again, two very tedious details.

As far as comfort it too was good. We were on the 2nd floor and had people upstairs on the 3rd floor and could hear them walking. One morning they were up at 4:00 and left the apartment just after 6:00, we too were awake at 4:00. I know it's an older building and wood floor creak, but it was every foot step. 4am is just a tad too early for me. The only reason I'm giving it 4 stars and not 5 is the bed. It was a steel frame however noisy, there was no way to turning in bed without waking up the other person, very creaky. Even just sitting on the bed was noisy.

A great place, close to everything! It was our 2nd stay and glad we returned.

Owner's Response: Toni, Thank you so much for your feedback. We will work on dish towels, sponges, and a can opener! Those are easy fixes. In terms of the bed frame, my handy man is fixing it in the morning! Thanks for letting us know. Best, Gene

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

This brownstone is in the perfect location! The Capitol Hill area is beautiful, clean, and safe, making it easy to walk to most major tourist destinations. The brownstone itself is perfect for feeling a part of history, yet has lots of modern conveniences. We loved it and would book again if we ever get back to D.C.

Fantastic location, condo and owner!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four spent five nights at this condo. We loved everything about it! It's right behind Folger's Shakespeare Library and theater, which is right behind the Capitol. We walked to all major attractions and ALL major museums. The neighborhood felt absolutely safe, even late at night. If you go for a morning walk in the neighborhood you will see many locals - walking their dogs, taking their kids to preschool, getting breakfast at the local cafe. It makes you feel like you are part of this beautiful city and really adds another dimension to your stay. The historic building is in perfect condition and there is everything you need in the condo. Wifi worked great. The kitchen seemed brand new. There was plenty of hot water both in the evening and in the morning. Within a five minute walk (take a left when you exit the building) you will find great food options - Pret a Manger is a French-style cafe with wonderfully strong coffee and a great variety of fresh delicious sandwiches and pastries. In the same block is We The Pizza - great quality and variety by the slice, very affordable, as well as a very nice burger place and several other restaurants. The is a convenience store within a five minute walk from the condo (take a right when you exit the building and another right at the first intersection, walk one block). We found it very helpful since we didn't have a car. Thanks to the location of our condo, we stayed well within our food budget and had extra to splurge on a private tour of the monuments my moonlight. We got to meet Gene in person and were so pleased! He is extremely sweet, flexible, helpful and knowledgeable. He gave us some great out-of-the-beaten-path suggestions for things to see in the city. We will definitely recommend this condo to family and friends!

Charming, great location.

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed this location quite a bit. Felt like a local a little more than a tourist staying in a hotel. Not only did we walk to all the mall attractions, but we really enjoyed being in a neighborhood where we could walk for dinner or a drink. House is historic in a charming neighborhood. Did not need to have much contact with Gene except for one minor problem which he responded to and fixed immediately. We appreciated that service.

Fantastic place and location.

  • 5 of 5

Nice little apartment just steps from Capital Hill and a DC bike share station. Apartment was clean with high ceilings to make it feel bigger. We will definitely stay here again on our next visit.

Best location for everything!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at The Hill's Flat! Space was even better than the pictures and had everything we needed. We were able to walk to all of the major sites and for those in neighboring communities we were just a short walk to the Metro. Capital Hill is a wonderful bustling neighborhood in which we always felt safe.
