Well-appointed Brownstone Studio, Exceptionally Quiet, Bright

Well-appointed Brownstone Studio, Exceptionally Quiet, Bright


Property Details

Updated: May 18, 2015
Completely private studio apartment in small brownstone building.

'The Dutch Room' is a 375 square foot Studio on the second floor of a 1896 Brownstone row house. We live on the first floor of this four story building and have one other VRBO Studio across the hall from this one.

There is one queen sized reproduction antique sleigh bed, choice 19th century antique furnishings, a handsome non-working fireplace, two very large windows facing north, a large desk, dining table, kitchen and bathroom with tub.

You will want to know that this apartment was completely gutted and fully renovated in the summer of 2012 with a completely new kitchen featuring Carrara marble countertops and Crema Marfil marble floors. The bathroom and kitchen are small but comfortable and fully appointed. The towels are by Ralph Lauren.

The magnificent bed is made up with Ralph Lauren bedding and there are four Laura Ashley brand pillows, each of a different firmness.

About the Owner

We are a married couple who live on the ground floor, one of us is an architect, the other a composer of classical music. We both work from home. We usually will greet you upon your arrival and are happy to guide you to features of the neighborhood. The building is extremely quiet and secure, as is the tree lined block in the heart of the Upper West Side. You are just steps from the greatest museums, shopping and entertainment in the world.

Brownstone in NY

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved this place. We stayed in the Dutch room which was well appointed. The reference books, the juice and coffee were an unexpected treat. Warren was a good host. The location was perfect for Central Park, the subway, the Natural History Museum, many great restaurants. The neighborhood and the brownstone made us feel like residents, not tourists. We loved Zabar's for shopping. We would definitely stay there again and will tell our friends.

This was my 10th trip to NYC, and this is the best spot I've stayed in. Perfect location, easy access to transit, Central Park, Zabars, you name it. And it is quiet: not quiet-for-NYC but small town quiet. I was there for "snowmageddon" and it was great to stock up a little food and not worry about restaurants closing. Would not bother shopping around for another place for future visits.

My wife and I stayed a week in the Dutch room. The apartment was quiet and clean, well furnished. The neighborhood was walkable but close to MTA. Central Park two blocks over with the museums. Fairway Market and Zabars for whatever groceries you might need. Lots of neighborhood shopping and dining. The owners Susan and Warren were quite welcoming, I'd say we look forward to staying here on our next trip to NYC!

I had an absolutely lovely 5 night stay in this studio. As a single 60 plus woman traveler I felt completely secure and safe in the area. The bed was very comfy, the towels were thick and fluffy and I had my morning tea in Wedgwood! Everything about the studio was pleasing and it is a great location; very walkable but with great access to the bus lines and subway, lots of restaurants and the always wonderful Zabar's close by as well. The landlords, Warren and Susan were very friendly and helpful. I will definitely be back.

If you want to stay outside of the tourist districts and enjoy a holiday with the local residents this is the place to be. Surrounded by a host wonderful cafés, bars and restaurants to suit all budgets and there are enough grocery stores to enable you buy all the essentials you might need. It takes about 30 minutes to walk to the top of 5th avenue either via Central Park or along Amsterdam /Columbus but be prepared - there are numerous shops (clothes, shoes, artefacts, crafts etcetera) that you will undoubtedly take double that time. The subway is also just around the corner. As for the accommodation - it's perfect. Impeccably clean, a really comfortable bed and a fully equipped kitchen (with lovely surprises in the fridge waiting for us). The bathroom has both a bath and a shower with oodles of hot water. Susan and Warren could not have been more welcoming or accommodating - not something you'd find easily in many NYC hotels! Next time we visit we don't even feel the need to consider other options, this is perfect for two holidaying mums.

Very nice studio apt. Very clean and well maintained. Landlords Warren and Susan had provided coffee, juice and milk to get you started. They were very helpful and available if you had any questions. Great location. Near bus, subway and walk to Central Park. Short walk to many restaurants and shops. Have stayed here previously and will stay here again. Highly recommend this property.

We have two VRBO units in this brownstone, each across the hall from the other. The other unit, The Metropolitan Room, is listed under VRBO 327144. Families and friends often like to book both. They are both studios and have the same rental rates.
