Nice little guest house...good location
Everything about the advertisement is true. I will mention a couple of things just for your awareness....I am a somewhat large person and I found the stairs going to the bedroom and bathroom to be VERY narrow. Also the only bathroom is upstairs and it was also VERY tight for a larger person. We found the owner to be very nice and easy to work with. She was very thoughtful and had a bottle of wine, fresh muffins waiting for us, as well as juice and creamer in the fridge....and the list of little extras goes on and on. We had a great weekend in the Richmond area.
Really comfortable, cozy and private retreat.
We were staying in Richmond to visit family and stayed four nights. We found the Westhampton Guest House to be ideal for us. Very comfortable and well equipped. Everything we wanted. Added bonus: a quick walk to coffee, ice cream and good restaurants. All in all, really great.
Thank you! We enjoyed having you and hope you'll come again!
Precious Guest Cottage
Great layout, well equipped, and centrally located. I will definitely book again.
Thank you, Kristen. We so enjoyed having you and look forward to your next visit!
Peaceful privacy in the shade of the Bamboo Grove
The Westhampton Guest House is an ideal base for visiting Richmond. This was our second stay. You are within walking distance from some great restaurants, shops and a boutique grocery. You have easy access by car to downtown, Carytown and points West as well. The guest house is clean, comfortable and very private. The owners have it well kitted out and are very gracious hosts. I have recommended this guest house to others, and hope it is available for our next stay in Richmond.
Thanks so much for your review! It was great having you all as guests and we so hope you will visit again!
Cozy Guest House
We stayed here for approximately one month, much longer than their usual guests. We were made to feel welcome as we met our hosts Carroll and Steve, the owners of this property. They did a walk thru with us on day 1 and pointed out certain features. After that, we could text them or call if we needed anything, and they were very responsive, but we had plenty of privacy from the street, and we only saw them a couple of times as we came and went thru our separate entrance. The unit is about 900 sqft on 2 floors with the bedroom up. Cozy and comfortable. Clean and neat. The only bathroom is upstairs and is very small (think cruise ship), but functional. Upon arrival, the guest house had fresh flowers, a bottle of wine, plus coffee and creamer and 2 muffins for the morning until we could get to the store. Nice touch. Enjoyed the hot tub, too. In addition, there was a long built in desk upstairs with cubbies above it - which was great for my sewing projects, and would be wonderful for anyone doing business while traveling. Easy walking distance to many convenient services including restaurants, bars, food market, Starbucks , churches, etc. We were very comfortable. Renters should be aware that there are two full beds upstairs and that the front of the carriage house is mainly glass with sheer curtains, thus reducing privacy from the main house somewhat at night time on the first floor. Nice place, otherwise private location, and we would likely rent again. Thanks to our hosts for a nice stay!
We enjoyed having Russ and Pat, although we didn't get to see much of them. We actually have had guests for much longer, but Pat may be referring to the internet. We had never had a guest need to do webinars to Kuwait before, lol, but am happy to report after upgrading our wifi to accommodate these guests, the call went off without a hitch! We have large floor to ceiling windows which let in lots of natural light and in 3 years, no one has mentioned the curtains to us. Hate to hang dark curtains there, but may have to rethink after this comment. Just for clarification, they are linen curtains, not sheers. Pat and Russ are very quiet and polite guests and we would recommend them to other hosts.
