The Space

Greetings! We have ONE GUEST ROOM available for rent in our home, which is centrally located in West Hartford, on main bus line. It has a comfortable queen-size futon (that accommodates two people), a night table, dresser and closet space. This bedroom has two luminous windows, facing the backyard and is located next to the (shared) bathroom. Toiletries and towels are provided for your convenience, as well as information about nearby eateries.

Guest Access

Besides the guest room and the shared bathroom, the other areas guests have access to are a large fully-equipped kitchen, dining-room with TV, living-room and backyard (weather permitting).
* Free parking * is available (off-street during daytime; however guest's car must be parked in driveway overnight —as per town ordinance).
Washer and dryer are available on premises.

Interaction with Guests

Due to our jobs, our schedules usually accommodate flexible check-in/out [to coordinate, please indicate your estimate arrival at time of booking].
We are a late-thirties couple who have traveled around the world so we have many stories to share, but also appreciate and respect quiet time to rest during your stay. We are environmentally-friendly, healthy, and non-smoking, so we ask that if you choose to smoke, you do so outside the house.

PETS: Our family are our two black pets: we have a large breed, well-behaved coonhound mix dog whose size might intimidate some people —but he is 90 pounds of pure affection! (see profile photo) We also have an extremely sociable 'tuxedo' cat that loves to follow people around the house and go for walks with the dog.

The Neighborhood

We love our neighborhood for the variety of cuisines available within walking distance of Park Road:
- Less than 3 minute walk there is Quaker Diner, Joey's Pizza, A.C. Petersen, J.René Coffee Roasters, Hearty Kitchen, Pho Vietnam, I Love Sushi, Sweet Chili (Thai), A Little Something Bakery.
- Within 6-8 minutes walk there is Chengdu, Plan B Burger Bar, Los Adobes (Mexican).
- The house is located a mile/12 blocks away from West Hartford's Blue Back Square, which is around 20 minutes by foot, and offers access to Whole Foods, seasonal farmer's markets, and over 25 restaurants and eateries.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • This was a bright and cheery home. Natacha was a great host and I loved her big dog Bastian. I briefly met her cat, but he likes to be outside a lot. He was very friendly from what I saw. This is walking distance from many of the best things West Hartford has to offer in restaurants and the neighborhood is great. Very clean and accommodating.

  • Natacha and Michael were wonderful hosts and the room in her house was clean and comfortable. Plus, their dog is so friendly! Though my stay was short it was exactly what I was looking for. I recommend staying with them when in West Hartford.

  • I truly enjoyed staying at Natacha's home. The room and bed were comfortable, clean and neat. The bathroom was just right. Natacha was very friendly and helpful. And, her dog Bastian is friendly and easy to be with. I had a very good stay here and will do it again.

  • Excellent hosts and lovely animals. :)

  • If you are looking for the best hosts out there, you should visit Natacha and Mike. They had great recommendations for sightseeing and were very responsive. My favorite was their willingness to share travel experiences and the family feel.

  • This sweet guest room in a great neighborhood gave us a wonderful night in West Hartford. Natacha's house is cozy, spacious and full of thoughtful little touches. There was even a toiletries basket with granola bars waiting for us! The bed is a futon, which I consider to be more comfortable than a mattress because real futons offer good back support.

    Natacha and her bf were great hosts. We met them briefly before going out to dinner. They offered great dinner suggestions; tons of dining options barely five minutes away. They also provided cereal for breakfast.

  • Natacha and Mick are wonderful host, you feel like in your own home ! They don't hesitate to bring you to party, cinema or more simply to the mall when they go there. There have all the furnitures and appliances you would need, a market and some restaurants near the house. The bus 33 at 10 sec walk and the bus 66 at 10 min approximately. I stayed 3 extra weeks as I was still looking for an appartment, so I can say it's really a nice place and nice people.
    Their pets are really friendly and well trained.

    I definitely recommand them :-) !
