This was our first stay at a Bed and Breakfast and Daissy set the bar high. We felt right at home as soon as she opened the door. We are in our early 20's and Daissy put our mind at ease about coming back in the early hours of the morning. The only breakfast that beats the the one we... More

I've stayed here several times in the past few years and I've always enjoyed it. Again I stayed in the large upstairs room -- it works very well for me, and good internet (critical for me). It's in a lovely neighborhood with a short, flat walk to downtown and the campus. Daisy is a fine host, too

We (my husband and I) have been coming to Iowa City for the jazz festival for 9 years and have stayed with Daissy at A Bella Vista every time. We happened upon it by chance when searching for a B and B, and come back each year because of Daissy's hospitality. She's a wonderful host. This summer my family came... More

Daissy welcomed my daughter and me like we were family and made us feel completely at home from the moment we knocked on her door. We loved talking with her and seeing the photos from her travels that fill the house. Our room was very comfortable and the neighborhood location was wonderfully pleasant and convenient. We highly recommend A Bella... More

It was 9 years ago that my wife & I made the trip to Iowa City over Independence Day for their jazz fest. My wife happened upon Daissy's place as we made plans for that 1st trip and Daissy, her house & her breakfasts have become a major reason we've returned most every year. My favorite of her breakfasts, Eggs... More

I gave this place a very good because it was in a perfect location, a small picturesque house in a roundabout in lovely Iowa City, also within walking distance of the downtown area. The beds were comfortable, and the room was a very reasonable price. However the house itself is pretty outdated, with just too much stuff in it! Daissy... More

Perfect. Quiet neighborhood. BNB is about a 15 minute walk through neighborhoods filled with quiet brick streets and huge old houses to the noisy downtown bars and action. We enjoyed the walk, enjoyed the noisy action, then enjoyed the walk back to the BNB and the quiet. Daisy the owner is great. The BNB was clean and the breakfast in... More
