About Colin Powell

Grew up in NYC, been in Washington, DC since 2001, frequently uses Homeaway for lodging alternative especially when traveling with family and friends. Went to college in Atlanta, GA and completed Graduate work at Georgetown University. Very meticulous due to my military background.

Colin Powell purchased this house in 2001

Why Colin Powell chose Le Droit Park

The property offers you historic perspective with a modern decor. Centrally located in NW Washington, DC with easy access via Metro to all the tourist sites. Few minutes to Verizon Center and the Washington, DC Convention Center.

What makes this house unique

Spacious and central location is definitely a plus. Also like the fact that the neighborhood is growing and offers great local coffee houses, restaurants, and bars.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Colin's place is absolutely incredible - this apartment/home really exceeded our expectations. It seems newly remodeled and has a gorgeous kitchen and bathrooms and the rooms are wonderful. We were very comfortable here and Colin was quick to reply to any of our needs. Definitely recommend.

Inefficient management

  • 3 of 5

The house had a leaky ceiling as a result of which we could not use the master bath and the living area down stairs. We were a family of six and it was not very convenient. This problem didn’t arise suddenly and the owners told us about it after we landeded in DC and are on our way to the property. If they had given us a choice before we would have preferred to stay some where else. They did have a plumber come and put some caulking in the bath but it continued to leave. At the time of check out we did email the owner about it . Would have liked to hear something about it but no response from him. Looks like after he got his money he doesn’t really care if the guests had a comfortable stay or not.

Other than that this the place is clean, well equipped and in good location. May be if the attitude of the management is a bit more concerned with the comfort of the guests I would have rated it a little higher.

Solid rental

  • 3 of 5

Decent place in a neighborhood that is moving towards gentrification. Previous renters we're still in there and we couldn't get in on time, water pressure was horrible, thermostat required a pin code - cons. Nice amenities, nicely remodeled, very helpful staff - pros.

Excellent location. Beautiful, well kept, well managed property. The website does not do this house any justice at all. Safe, secure neighborhood. The owner responded in a timely manner to any requests/questions. On the street parking was never an issue. Centrally located to the National Mall, shopping, restaurants. Multiple rental options within this one property. The downstairs level, Great for a single person on a business trip, a couple or perhaps even a family of four. Another option is the upstairs level(lock-off) or simply rent the whole house if you have a large family as we did. WELL WORTH THE INVESTMENT. You will never rent another hotel room once you stay here. All The Comforts Of home, fully furnished, washer/dryer/pots/pans, anything and everything you can think of. And the owner even had the kitchen supplied with basic cooking seasonings, lol, the little things in life! My family and I are planning to go back this summer. You will not be disappointed!

Well appointed kitchen, lots of space to relax, easy access to DC-- this place is a great find.

  • 5 of 5

Mr. Powell's place is clean, comfortable, and set up like a private hotel. He responds quickly to questions and makes sure guests have info about the house, the neighborhood, and seeing the sights in DC. There was parking on the block every day, and getting into the city center was a snap. Grilling on the porch bbq was a highlight of our long weekend!

Close to everything with all the comforts of home!

  • 4 of 5

This rowhouse had all of the comforts of home and was close to all of the DC attractions and if not close, the train was 5 blocks away or the bus was down the street. The home has obviously been remodeled in spots and was well done- the bathrooms were really nice, the kitchen and dining had everything we needed, and the bedrooms were comfortable. The kitchen is a little tall, my husband is 6 foot 1 and could only reach the bottom of the upper cabinets. There was a step stool available to help us out when needed. There are a lot of sirens going on a lot of the time in DC, and the neighborhood we were in was not immune to that. The owner is well organized and his instructions were clear and easy to understand. Check in and out went very smoothly.
