A method and apparatus for providing common access to data spaces by a plurality of virtual machine guests emulated on a host computer system. A token received from a given one of the virtual machine guests is used to identify a particular host data space. The guest also supplies an offset. The offset and the identified host data space are then used to derive a host absolute address representative of a data location in the host data space.
