  • Evangeline

Hello Everyone! My name is Evangeline with a little about myself. My career has been focused around the hospitality arena. Starting out on Miami’s South Beach scene, I worked my way through the ins and outs of the Island Outpost hotel chain. Finding comfort through my love of interior design, cooking and entertainment my life has revolved around creating beautiful food and events for others! With a bachelors degree in Business Administration, I harnessed all my energy on building a future that I could be proud to share.

From owning a event planning business in Miami, to rising from barista to assistant manager at a thriving restaurant in Massachusetts within seven months, providing results with a positive attitude has opened many doors for me. The time has finally presented itself to bring my passion to the forefront and present the Vendela Rose Guest House to the world. With your support, we can begin revamping the current establishment to the envisioned Vendela Rose by Spring of 2020. 

With the United Kingdom in mind, the next step was to put plan to action by locating the perfect city to deliver this experience with an American twist. With this riverside location by nature and the famed Forest of Dean, the Vendela Rose Guest House will be a modern techno bed and breakfast offering eight individually furnished rooms, mini spa, and a rooftop bar and lounge.



Superbly located in the Wye Valley between Ross-on-Wye and Monmouth. Situated on the banks of the River Wye at idyllic Symonds Yat East, overlooking the rapids, where the river flows into a steep sided wooded gorge under the famous Yat Rock. This bed and breakfast was established 50 years ago in a well known tourist destination, ideal for a relaxing day of soaking of the sun rays or exploring the beautiful outdoors. From the doorstep one can enjoy virtually every outdoor pursuit as a group or by oneself. The property is near the Welsh border. The historic cities of Hereford, Gloucester and Abergavenny are within driving distance. 

The Guest house roadways are linked to the Midlands, North London and Wales with easy access to the famed Forest of Dean (think Harry Potter). The Vendela Rose Guest House offers is a fantastic vacation destination in Great Britain.


My goal is to turn the current and fully operational 12 room bed and breakfast to an 8 room oasis. This is where I need your help. Your contributions will convert the extra 4 rooms into a mini spa. The rooftop will transform into a lounging tropical paradise and bar. The kitchen will be relocated for proper ventilation. The current location of the bar area becomes a library with a functional fireplace. By integrating smart technology throughout the property, guests will have the option of utilizing voice automation to control lighting, window treatments, media and temperature on a  secured, well rounded network. Cellphones will be installed in each room--fully operational for guests to use in place of their phones, providing that extra piece of mind in regards to privacy and the cost of roaming fees. 

Overall, the entire guest house will receive a modern, colorful minimalist makeover to include:

  • improvements to ventilation and air circulation 
  • leveling all floors
  • replacing all carpet with wood floors and stamped concrete 
  • repaving of the parking area
