Well-appointed Brownstone Studio, Exceptionally Quiet, Bright

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Oct 20, 2014
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.

Very quiet and convenient NYC base

  • 5 of 5
Our first visit to NYC was made all the more memorable with our accommodation choice of Warren and Susan's apartment in the upper west side. The apartment is very well appointed with a wonderful atmosphere which captured the whole sense of belonging in our neighbourhood, where our hosts were very welcoming and provided us with excellent information during our stay. The location is very convenient to a number of subway lines which enabled us to explore the city with ease, and the proximity to Central Park and the wonderful Museum of Natural History were added bonuses. We would highly recomend this apartment to anyone looking to visit New York and hope to return one day. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

Our new favorite home on the West Side

  • 5 of 5
We very much appreciated this well appointed room. The layout and flow is the best we have experienced in NYC. Warren and Susan have thought of everything a traveler might need. It was so quiet, that we turned off the AC, opened the windows and enjoyed the fresh air all night. It was nice to look out on the garden, rather than into a brick wall or into another person's room. Thank you for letting us enjoy your home!

  • 5 of 5
My 14yr old daughter and I had a great time staying at this studio apartment. The apartment was very clean a
nd comfortable. It is located in my favorite area of NYC. The owners were very nice and accommodating. We will definitely be back soon.

Excellant location. Adequate shelter

  • 2 of 5
I selected this place based on the high reviews and am a bit puzzled by the praises. The West Side location is fabulous and we enjoyed many fine meals in the local restaurants. The studio apartment is adequate only. The entrance and stairway are very dirty and dingy. I usually stretch out and do yoga in the mornings but would not go any where near the carpet in the room because it was rather dirty and should be replaced. With a new carpet, fresh coat of paint and some new bed linens this place would be a 5 star. As it is now, it is tired. The host seemed somewhat disinterested and we needed to ask for fresh towels mid-week. Nothing was offered. When we were leaving the host ran into my husband and did not even inquire as to how our stay was and if the accommodations were to our liking. Had I been asked, I would have shared this information verbally rather than posting a negative review. Not a return place for us.

We love it!

  • 5 of 5
We will be back to Manhattan and we would like to stay again in this lovely and clean apt! We can highly recommend it. This was our first experience with renting an apt in Manhattan and we would definitely do it again. So much better than staying in a hotel, so quiet and clean, authentic, secure and so beautiful furniture! The Metro is only a few minutes away, best neighborhood and Warren and Susan are so complaisant and helpful. What should I say more than: I want to come back to New York and stay in the wonderful Dutch Room! Thank You so much for all!! (Sorry for
