Banyan House Vacation Rentals
Reviewed June 25, 2011

Crisp sheets; large fluffy towels; elegant breakfasts; historic1926 Spanish mansion near the center of town, walking distance to shops and restaurants or the beach; Victorian furniture; AC and ceiling fans; swimming pool, air-conditioned fitness center, shady lounging areas; topped by the personal touches of the owners. We will definitely recommend and return.

Sue and Chuck are very good at what they do. It would be doing an injustice not to have mentioned the hosts first. They have an outstanding property. This is not your typical B&B. The breakfasts are not your standard fill up on cereals/pastry/oatmeal. Sue prepares works of art for breakfast. No kidding...guarantee you say it once...that its a shame to eat something that looks that beautiful and delicious. The Banyan House mansion and adjoining apartments are wonderfully welcoming and comfortable. The pool and patio area make for great relaxing fun. Everything at Banyan is very well thought out. BH is very clean, very quiet, and very wonderful. Call as soon as you can because previous guests book a year in advance. And by the way, they are close enough to the downtown shopping/dining area, but its a very quiet location. There's just no reason not to stay at Banyan House. Our stay was great.

Gorgeous pool and landscaping.
The friendliest hosts you will ever meet.

We LOVE The Banyan House! We are staying for the third year in a row and can't wait for our next visit. Chuck and Susan are wonderful, friendly hosts. Susan's breakfasts are delicious! Lots of wonderful shops downtown with a nice town feeling. Centrally located and close to Sarasota. Highly reccommend you visit! You'll never want to leave!

Banyan House is an absolutely wonderful B and B in Venice. It is immaculate, charming, welcoming and comfortable. And if that isn't enough, wait till you enjoy the delicious breakfast served in the sunroom each morning. Susan and Chuck are gracious and talented host and hostess. I guarantee you'll want to return. Nancy

Our stay at the Banyan House could have only been better if we'd been able to stay longer. The weekend was just not long enough. The house has been beautifully restored, but has all the modern amenities you could want. The inn keepers are so lovely and nice and friendly... I could go on and on. They gave us a tour of the property upon arrival and were there when we needed them at any point during our stay. The food they prepared for breakfast was delcious and original. They had bicycles to use, we rode to the beach and strainers to borrow so we could search for sharks teeth. We definately recommend The Banyan House to anyone visiting the Venice area.

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 Internet and bikes. The hosts Susan and Chuck could not be warmer or more accommodating.

We stayed in the Tree House Room which was perfect for our family of 3. My wife and I had a private bedroom while our daughter sleep in an adjacent living room. We also had a large deck that overlooked the pool and was adjacent to the magnificent Banyan Tree.

The breakfasts were all terrific and the location was ideal for us, close to the main street in Venice and a bike ride from the beach. All in all a great place to stay that I would highly recommend.
