If you are visiting Iowa City for business or pleasure, you should stay at A Bella Vista B & B. Daisy the owner makes the visit warm and welcoming! Breakfast is delicious and she always has a few moments to visit with you and listen to your day. Our room was full of all the comforts from home and a... More

We decided to stay at Bella Vista during a recent college visit to Iowa City. Many of the hotels were booked up so we decided to check out Bella Vista...we're so happy we did. We had a very large comfortable room with every necessary accommodation and more. Daissy is a delight and made us feel so welcome in her lovely... More

This was my first time staying at A Bella Vista B & B, and I must say it was a charming experience. Daissy, the owner, is a delightful person who made me feel right at home. She surprised me upon arrival by offering a glass of sangria, and we both sat down to a glass of wine and immediately had... More

We have stayed at Daissy's B&B several times and each time is a new delight! Daissy always makes us feel as if we are "back home again!" She knows what we like for breakfast but also surprises us with different taste treats. She is a very easy and comfortable hostess. The view from our room's window is of the Iowa... More

A Bella Vista is a beautiful, warm, friendly place to stay. Daissy, the owner, has created a home away from home atmosphere, including comfortable rooms, interesting conversation, specialty breakfasts --the definition of hospitality. We will most definitely stay here again!!!

Easy access to a quaint B&B in Iowa City. If the weather would have been a bit warmer the porch is so inviting. Three ladies stayed in two rooms, we shared a bathroom and that was perfectly fine, great shower. Thoroughly enjoyed the breakfasts, yummy in the tummy before game time and on Sunday morning. Special treat by Daissy, she... More

Daissy has a lovely Bed & Breakfast, it's very easy to find in northeast Iowa City, quite accessible to the campus (both sides of river), delicious breakfast,... More

A Bella Vista B&B is a true gem. The oldest continually operating B&B in Iowa. A low-key, charming, & personable B&B run by the delightful and well-travel owner. Breakfast is healthy, tasty, & has an ethic flair.

We needed a break form staying in hotels at the end of a nine day trip, and we located this B&B on the tourism web site. Our hostess Daissy hailed from South America and is a seasoned traveler with entertaining stories from around the world. There was only one other person staying there during our stay, a researcher from South... More

I am a foreign professor from Brazil that spent 3 weeks in Iowa City, in a business trip. I need somewhere close enough to the University of Iowa (College of Public Health Building), and with a fair price, once I'll be staying for much time. I was somehow concerned to choose this place from Brazil (I accepted a tip from... More
