The Central Coast with its laid-back vibe and serene natural beauty is the perfect setting for a family reunion or wedding! Lush vineyards, spectacular ranches, quaint historic villages, and breathtaking beaches make it a very sought-after destination.
Just seconds off U.S. Highway 101, this property is 'Conveniently' located to all area attractions and is in the heart of the Central Coast. It is only 15 minutes from San Luis Obispo, 2 miles from Pismo Beach, and under one hour to Hearst Castle. Dozens of wineries are minutes away. It is within walking distance of the historic village of Arroyo Grande, a charming little village with an old-fashioned 1930's-style ice-cream soda fountain shop and many charming little specialty stores. Wineries, beaches, dunes, scenic drives, nature walks, historic villages, fine restaurants and shopping are minutes away.
Being close to the beach, temperatures are mild and comfortable year round; our central air conditioning is hardly ever used.

I was born in Italy. Family is LIFE! That's me in the picture with my 2 grandsons---life is wonderful!!
I worked the Inn as a bed and breakfast for the last 23 years and now I would like to offer my 'HOME' to your family and friends to enjoy and make many memories as I have done with thousands of guests, family, and friends throughout the years.
I'm going to fly like a bird and 'invent' the remainder of my life so that is why I now offer the Inn to you! Ciao and I send you all my love, Gina
Gina purchased this house in 1989
Why Gina chose Arroyo Grande
You cannot have a “true” Family Reunion if people have to stay in 2 or 3 homes! This home accommodates up to 30 people in comfortable beds with plenty of room for up to 38 guests in one warm and inviting home! Since it was built to be a bed and breakfast inn, the bedrooms are very spacious and they all have private full baths!
The Dining Room and Living Room are also very spacious and accommodate up to 30 so everyone can eat together, play games, or relax and visit.
The two lovely gardens are perfect for lawn games or outdoor dining. They are also hidden from the outside world and are ideal for intimate weddings.
Imagine being only 2 miles from the beach and experiencing comfortable temperatures year round. Add to that a standard of cleanliness, details, and accommodations found only in professional establishments, and this property is hard to beat!!
It is difficult to find accommodations such as this for larger groups. We have had several families share their vacation rental experiences of ranches in this area. They told us that those properties were 30-50 miles from the nearest grocery store, that it got so hot that they were forced to stay indoors for their entire stay, that they had little water pressure and were not able to shower, and that the well water was not drinkable! You will find none of those issues at this location!
The Arroyo Grande area, with Pismo Beach 5 minutes away and San Luis Obispo only 15 minutes north, is a very desirable and sought after destination by travelers from all over the world. They come to enjoy the gently rolling countryside, Hearst Castle, the uncrowded beaches, wine tasting at dozens of wineries, the Dunes, quaint historic villages, biking along country lanes, kayaking and boating, bird watching, hiking, and much more!
What makes this house unique
1. Large number of people can be TOGETHER UNDER ONE ROOF and still have a lot of space and privacy!
2. Still maintained as a luxury Inn providing services most rentals do not offer.
3. Centrally located and easily accessible to all the small towns and sights that make the Central Coast very desirable as a destination location!
4. 1/3-acre gardens for outdoor games, outdoor dining, and relaxation.
5. Immaculately clean!
They say we should smell the roses; well, here you can actually smell the roses and the jasmine, and orange blossoms, and.....enjoy life and those you love!
Guestbook comments from the owner
Every summer, our large extended family vacation together. We love staying in one home so that we can spend as much time together as possible. For the past several years we have done everything from cruises to rental homes in Santa Barbara. It is always a challenge to find something that suits our needs in terms of number of rooms, cleanliness, location, and an overall warm feeling. This summer, our family hit the jackpot! Our family of 16, including grandparents, parents and children, stayed at Abella Garden Inn for four nights. We rented the entire inn and used 8 bedrooms for our family. The inn was beyond immaculate! Absolutely spotless! All the rooms had on-suite bathrooms and had luxurious and comfortable beds. The decor was romantic and warm. At first, we were concerned that our young children would have a hard time not touching Gina's beautiful antiques, but the house is surprisingly kid-friendly. The house/inn has everything that you could possibly need! And if you do need something, Gina is there immediately to help. She is wonderful! The garden is gorgeous. The adults enjoyed relaxing outside, while the children enjoyed playing on the grass. Finally, the location in Arroyo Grande is ideal for exploring central California. We highly recommend this inn to anyone who is looking for a relaxing and fun getaway with your large family. You will not be disappointed!
