Banyan House Vacation Rentals
Reviewed January 5, 2014

After returning for our third visit at Historic Banyan House we continue to feel fortunate to stay at this outstanding B & B. Return guests find in their room a "welcome home" note in addition to wine and scrumptious home-baked treats. Chuck and Susan are talented and generous hosts, kindly responding to any requests for advice regarding the local area. The breakfasts are creative and delicious and Susan cheerfully accommodates any special dietary needs. The amenities provided by Banyan House attract a loyal and interesting cliental as well as lucky new guests. This is a very special place, we can't wait to come back next year!

Your Property is very lovely and well appointed but
afternoon tea a little cheese or crackers wine & cheese and from scratch breakfast would make you special your property is pristine and your effort on how the house looks is exceptional

A very nice well appointed B & B the premise was clean and the bed was confortable
we stayed in the palm suite the bathroom was tuff to navigate if your over five feet six inches tall you will have a difficult time in the shower the inn keepers are polite and friendly the house was very nice a very well cared for now the ok part the breakfast lacked in creativity first day a bannana with to much sauce and fritata that was sitting around to long that would have been sold at the clock restaurant had a little specialty bread it was ok second day stawberry's in granola a little yogurt would have gone a long way with it main course french toast wonder bread battered and shape of christmas tree with pineapple in raspberry syrup a little bit clever but try a homemade bread or at least a specail bread from a baker
If I came back to venice I would come again seems like best B&B in town but don't get exited about breakfast maybe pass and try restaurants in town!

This was our second stay with Susan and Chuck at Banyan House, we tried a different room this time. The hosts cannot do enough for you...they will offer helpful advice about restaurants and attractions also.
Convenient location to walk to restaurants, shops or the beach. You can hangout onsight by the pool or on the patio. Superb breakfasts, but be sure to bring an appetite...there's always lots to eat.
This experience was as good or better than our first stay here.

We very much enjoyed our stay here. Chuck and Susan were very pleasant and breakfast was tasty every day. We liked our room (The Palm) because it had a little kitchenette and a nifty little deck that looked out at the banyan tree and the pool area. By the way, the patio area was really nice and we liked the little pool and the exercise room as well. I also liked that they had bikes that we could use to ride the few blocks over to the downtown area or even to the beach if we wanted. Our hosts had an ice machine and equipment such as coolers and "sand digging tools" that we used at the beach. We would stay here again if we made it back to this area.

The Banyan House made my first vacation to Venice, FL simply delightful. Very clean, quiet, and beautifully decorated. Breakfast varied from hot pancakes to frittata with fruit, granola and yogurt parfait starting the meal. The House Innkeepers keep the grounds beautifully maintained and always were around to assist with finding certain locations in the area. My flight was quite late but the innkeepers accomodated my arrival. Daily newspaper, bicycles, and beach chairs with umbrellas made available for guests without extra cost. Huge living room (sun room) with full sink, dishes, microwave, coffee pot with coffee/tea and creamer, popcorn and 2 small bottles of chilled wine in the refrigerator for the guests. Walking distance to the Venice "main shopping district" including many wonderful consignment shops. I love the Banyan tree next to my room and the mansion's history. I've never stayed in such a lovely home like this B & B. Worth every penny I spent.

This is a beautifully restored mansion built in 1923. It reminds me of the historic Southern California stucco and red tile roof buildings in San Diego and L.A. We stayed in The Laurel Room, perfectly and decorated, in detail to that era, in blue and yellow flowered accents. White bathrobes, plush fluffy towels, cold bottled water and wine in the small refrig, lots of paperbacks and lamps for reading. Outside a heated pool, hot-tub, swing for two, hammock under the Banyan Tree, exercise and recreation building were all restored to perfection. Susan and Chuck who bought and restored this property themselves are just delightful! The breakfast room is wonderfully bright and cheerful with beautiful stained glass windows and panels that were hand-made by Chuck. They were very accommodating as we had an early morning memorial service to attend. Susan had coffee, fruit salad and home baked bread for us before we left as breakfast is usually served at 9:00.
