This was my first time at the Banyan House, and words just can't express how much I enjoyed my time here. The careful detail and thoughtfulness that the innkeepers, Chuck and Susan, have put into taking care of their guests and the house itself made my stay the best experience I have ever had in a hotel/inn/B&B. I feel like it's another home.
The property is not only well maintained, but also is beautifully furnished and decorated. The rooms have a cozy, "homey" feel and the room amenities are very nice. Outside, there is a pool, hammock, and small but nice building with a pool table and exercise facilities (perfect for entertainment through Venice's brief but intense storms).
The best part about my stay was Chuck and Susan's hospitality. I'm not much of a breakfast person, but Susan's homemade breakfasts are to die for. She went out of her way to personalize my room for me before my arrival, setting a "congratulations graduate!" balloon near my bed and a handwritten note for me in the refrigerator (which I should mention comes stocked with nice cold drinks). Chuck will gladly help you with anything that you need. If you have need any advice about activities around Venice (fishing, flying, shark tooth hunting, etc), he is the man to ask and goes out of his way to set you up with the best people he knows. They are both very sweet and it is obvious that they care tremendously for their guests.
In conclusion, I love the Banyan House because of the incredible hospitality and customer service. The beautiful house and grounds also help :) I will never stay anywhere else in Venice as long as the Banyan House stands.
