One bedroom with private bath and one bedroom with shared bath in my cozy West Hartford home. My home is close to West Hartford Center and Blueback Square and a lovely walk to Elizabeth Park Rose Garden. As a teacher, I have an early start to my day, but am happy to leave cereal and fruit for you to enjoy! Full kitchen privileges for those who wish to prepare their own meals.
There are 2 bus lines within walking distance from my street which bring you to downtown Hartford headed east or Farmington headed west. My location is very convenient to area colleges, UCONN Law School and the UCONN Medical School.
My neigborhood is quiet and quaint! I love to meet new people visiting Connecticut and share my suggestions for terrific daytrips around the area! My favorite part of Airbnb is meeting, talking and getting to know wonderful people from all over the world!
My wife and I were visiting my daughter studying in Wesleyan University. We stayed for 6 weeks in Holly's place till college spring break. Because of the unusually cold winter, we found ourselves spending a large part of the day in Holly's comfortable home. Holly was kind enough to open up her kitchen to us for our use. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely stay with Holly again if we are up in the West Hartford area in the future.
It was great to stay with Holly on my short interview trip to Hartford. She lives right around the corner from the good shops and restaurants in West Hartford, which was convenient for me. My dinner event ended late and I had to take off very early the next morning, and Holly was very accommodating, and even helped out when I realized I had forgotten toothpaste! The bedroom is cozy and kept me warm throughout the night. The bathroom is right by the bedroom for convenience, with a nice shower. I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay! Holly and her husband of course were both wonderful, and although brief, we had a great conversation.
We had a nice experience. The room is cozy and well-decorated, and Holly is very welcoming. We hope to visit there again.
The stay was amazing and Holly was a great host. Enjoyed every moment I was there including conversations with Holly on varied topics in the evenings.
Definitely will come back again whenever the opportunity arises.
I can honestly say that Holly is a lifesaver! I was assigned a 10 week physical therapy rotation at Connecticut Children's and have no friends or relatives in the area. After searching apartments and hotels for weeks I turned to airbnb and found Holly's listing. She promptly responded to my message and I was immediately relieved! Holly was so warm and welcoming and I truly felt at home. The room is very large with a dresser and a nice size closet. The private bathroom was great. Holly allows her guests to utilize her kitchen and it was great to be able to prepare meals for myself during my time there. Holly's home is in a quiet, cute neighborhood and it took me less than 15 minutes to get to the hospital each morning. I could not have asked for a better place to live during my rotation! I hope that my travels bring me back to Connecticut again so that I can visit Holly!
Pleasant stay with a gracious and friendly host. Can't wait to return.
It was simply perfect.
Holly and her family were such wonderful and accommodating hosts! We have been very lucky and we felt very comfortable.
The house was wonderful, the room very clean and nicely prepared.
Holly was also incredibly helpful with advice for sites around the town and even told us about Hot Air Balloon Festival in Plainville, which we attended on Sunday morning.
To sum up our experience: When it all comes together it simply works effortlessly perfectly. Overall an amazing weekend!
Thank you so much Holly!
Karina and Bill.
We recently stayed with Holly when we were relocating from Ireland to Connecticut and it was one of the best decisions we could have made.
Holly was an excellent host - she accommodated us at a very busy time for her and went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed. Her home is beautiful and well located near West Hartford centre, parks and all other local attractions. The room and bathroom were lovely and comfortable with lots of space for all our bags and belongings.
Holly gave us lots of tips for things to do in the area, where to eat and always had time to chat or share helpful information as we found our way around and searched for our permanent accommodation. Her local knowledge and helpfulness really was invaluable to us. We still have some of her recommendations on our list of 'to dos'.
This was our first Air BnB experience and we were prompted to give it a try based on the excellent reviews Holly had received in the past. Our experience with Holly and her home mirrored all that we had read. We couldn't have wished for a better introduction to Air BnB and we certainly couldn't have wished for a better host. Thank you so much Holly!
The West Hartford Hideway was FANTASTIC! Holly was very warm and inviting, and her house is absolutely wonderful. I was so happy to have had a inviting stay to come home to each night after a long day of graduate study at U Hartford. Thank you, Holly, for opening your home to me, for introducing me to your lovely family, and for those delicious CT blueberries!! See you next year!
Holly was warm, welcoming and respectful. She immediately showed us to our room, which was clean, comfortable and spacious. She offered excellent suggestions for places to eat and provided a lovely breakfast to go on our last morning. A wonderful first experience with Airbnb.
