I had a wonderful 10-day stay at A Bella Vista Bed & Breakfast in Iowa City. It is a clean and cosy home just 10 mins from city centre. The hostess Daissy is graceful, charming, warm and friendly. She made me feel at home and made sure that my stay was comfortable. She was always ready to share her life experiences; and her cheerful disposition and positive outlook on life inspired me greatly. As she travels rather extensively to exotic places, she is able to give her guests good tips on travelling. During my stay, I was greeted by a truly delightful and well-prepared breakfast each morning. Daissy tries not to repeat her breakfast items and so she has created a breakfast menu that includes Daissy's Eggs Benediction, Breakfast Burrito, French Toasts with Peanut Butter and Fresh Fruit Toppings, Egg & Bacon Tostadas, Nutty Fruity Yoghurt Waffle Basket, etc. It made me look forward with anticipation to breakfast each morning with Daissy.
