I'm a big fan of bridging the hosts interface so that the guest kvm can
access the LAN directly. I avoid NAT if possible.

As for DNS, you could hack your etc hosts file or better yet use a
caching dns server on your router. I prefer openwrt for this kind of
setup. Very solid and flexible (for "normal" network setups).
