We had a great stay at the Banyan House while visiting friends in Venice Florida. The house is beautifully decorated and this B & B has a number of really excellent amenities. A great pool, which was kept at a warm temperature, a hot tub that was even hotter, a nice excursive room, pool table, even free washers dryer and... More

Our favorite Bed & Breakfast! Susan and Chuck are friendly, caring hosts who do everything to make your vacation fun. Each day begins with an excellent breakfast in a beautiful setting. During the day you can relax on the secluded patio or in the historic pool bordered by a tropical mural. The Venice Arboretum, historic landmarks, downtown restaurants and shops... More

My wife and spent a couple of nights in Venice, Florida, on holiday from the UK, and this was definitely the find of our 2 weeks along the Gulf coast. Banyan is an old house that has been lovingly restored and modernized (by the owners themselves seemingly!) the result of which is a fabulous little place only a 2 minute... More

My husband and I just returned home from a four nights' stay at Banyan House on Venice Island. We wished we could have stayed longer. The Banyan House is a wonderful B&B, a historic home which has been restored over many years by Chuck & Susan to its current pristine condition. We stayed in the Palmetto Room - very cozy... More

We have stayed at many B&Bs throughout the country. I would say that our favorite, so far, is The Banyan House, in Venice, Fla..The only problem is that the word is getting out, and it's getting harder to book. Chuck and Susan also have apartments that they lease by the month. We have also stayed in one of these, and... More

We picked the Banyon house out of a travel guide as we were flying to Florida in January 2002. We were fortunate to get the last room available. For three days Susan & Chuck made feel right at home. The grounds and physical setting of the Banyan house are second to none. There is a great small pool, outdoor hot... More
