My husband Rob and my self enjoy opening our home to guests and have often been home stay parents to multi culture students attending Dominican University. Our hospitality has always received great reviews. I [Joanna] have worked at a local bed and breakfast and I delight in cooking. We love to travel and have been to Japan, England, France, Italy and Africa. Rob and I enjoy people and hope to make your stay restful and relaxing. We look forward to serving you and the possibility of perhaps hearing your story over a cup of tea or complementary wine.
