The Writer's Retreat Apartment


The Writer's Retreat Apartment at Akwaaba DC offers spacious accommodations for up to 6, with 2 bathrooms, and a fully equipped kitchen. The unit is an English Basement Garden level with a private entrance. The main front room includes a king sized bed, living and dining areas. A short hallway brings you to the kitchen and a bedroom, furnished with a queen sized bed. Another small hallway off this bedroom accesses one of the bathrooms and a sitting room with a double sized futon sofa. The other bath is located off the kitchen. Cable TV is provided in the main room and the sitting room. Wireless internet is complimentary and provided throughout the apartment. Many families enjoy the Writers Suite, great for families with children.


A stay in the apartment is somewhat different from upstairs in the B&B. The apartment is self contained with a separate entrance from the B&B. Breakfast and daily housekeeping are not provided, though if desired, can sometimes be accommodated, please ask. All bed and bath linens are provided and of course the unit is thoroughly cleaned prior to your arrival. Guests are welcome to make use of the kitchen to prepare meals. There are 2 grocery stores, Whole Foods and Safeway, within a short walk.  If your family is traveling to Washington with a car, we have limited, reserved off street parking available for $20 per night.
