Completely private studio apartment in small brownstone building.

'The Dutch Room' is a 375 square foot Studio on the second floor of a 1881 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 Matouk Towels.

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

About Warren Ashworth

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.

Warren Ashworth purchased this Apartment in 1987

Why Warren Ashworth chose Upper West Side

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.

What makes this Apartment unique

High ceilings with lovely ceiling fans, big windows, quiet, beautifully furnished with antiques except the bed and chairs which are new and clean. Unlike many listings these days, The Dutch Room is fully licensed by the City and State of New York to operate as a hotel for which we collect and pay taxes. Our license numbers are available upon request.

                                                                  The only thing I would improve is curtains to the windows to fully block the light in the early morning.

Everything was perfect (like before) with our wonderful hosts Susan and Warren presenting this room beautifully. It has the perfect location ... so close to the Park and endless restraunts to choose from yet so quiet you wouldn’t know you were in the middle of Manhattan. We will always choose to stay here when we visit NY . Thank you Susan and Warren for sharing your part of NY with us.

                                                                  Just as described

                                                                  It was in an excellent location, and we were greeted warmly.

                                                                  I will stay here again.

He said the bed was so comfortable it was hard to rise each morning. The room was quiet, and he appreciated the milk and juice in the fridge. Great stay.

                                                                  An Amazing Stay!

We showed up on your door step well before check-in time on a bitterly cold afternoon and you ushered us into your warm and cozy studio apartment. You even carried our suitcases upstairs! After a brief but thorough introduction to all the amenities I got a smile on my face because I could tell that you loved sharing this special place with others. The location was perfect. The subway, museums, and Central Park were a short walk away. The neighborhood is loaded with cafes and restaurants with cuisine from all over the world. And we never once worried about safety with the police station across the street! It was a perfect stay and we will surely be back!
