ONE LARGE HOME - SLEEPS 30, 2 MILES TO PISMO BEACH, GARDEN WEDDINGS--LUXURY INN!

Arroyo Grande House Rental Photos and Description

10 Bedrooms, 8.5 Baths, 1/3-acre gardens near Pismo Beach, garden weddings

VACATION RENTAL 2 MILES TO PISMO BEACH - GARDEN WEDDING VENUE

SLEEPS 30 IN BEDS IN ONE LARGE, 6,000 SQ. FT. HOME!

This beautiful property is hidden from the outside world, creating a very intimate and private retreat, while being only 2 miles to the beach and close to all area attractions!

HISTORY

The house operated as a luxury bed and breakfast inn from 1989 to 2012.

GUEST ROOMS

There are 7 spacious and romantic garden-theme suites with full baths and a 3-room suite with a full bath.

AMENITIES

The suites include seating areas, robes, feather beds, down comforters, luxurious 450-thread-count cotton sheets, large fluffy towels, hair dryers, irons and ironing boards, private space heaters, fans, central heating and air conditioning, and many thoughtful and romantic appointments throughout.

First Floor: 3-room suite with full bath, kitchen, dining room, & living room.

Second Floor: 6 large rooms with full baths

Third Floor: One large suite with full bath

Gardens: 1/3 acre with 2 gardens, 1/2 bath, and the Garden Room that contains washers, dryers, large work table, and 3 extra refrigerators—6 total on site!

DECOR

The décor is that of a “Country Inn” and is warm and inviting, cozy and comfortable.

DINING ROOM & LIVING ROOM

The dining room seats up to 30 guests. The living room has seating for 22 and lots of space to bring in extra chairs. The double French doors open to the patio that includes a table and 8 more chairs. Opening these doors magically transports your senses outdoors under the clear blue sky surrounded by year-round bloom with the lull of waterfalls in the mist.

THE GARDENS

The upper “rose” garden is perfect for family lawn games and wedding receptions. The lower “fantasy” garden includes a babbling brook, waterfalls, and pond providing the perfect dream setting for a wedding ceremony. Both gardens have several tables and chairs for outdoor dining.

WEDDINGS & EVENTS

There is an extra charge to use the gardens for a wedding or other event. Maximum Occupancy: 50 guests

AREA

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.

LOCATION

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.

CLIMATE

Being close to the beach, temperatures are mild and comfortable year round; our central air conditioning is hardly ever used.

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!

I was born in Italy. Family, people, food, music, and dancing equal me, Gina, your little Italian vacation rental owner!! 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

You cannot have a FAMILY REUNION if people have to stay in 2-3 homes!

IMAGINE 30 people in one home with plenty of bathrooms, large bedrooms, and space to move around comfortably!

IMAGINE eating together and playing games in one dining room!

IMAGINE a large living room where everyone can sit together!

IMAGINE 2 separate gardens for games and outdoor dining!

IMAGINE being only 2 miles from the beach and minutes from stores, wineries, and the historic village of Arroyo Grande!

IMAGINE plenty of water and water pressure and comfortable temperatures year round!

That is exactly what you will find at this Inn!!

Add to that a standard of cleanliness, details, and accommodations found only in professional establishments, and this property is hard to beat!!

Free of technological 'junk', it will help families tackle the skills of verbal communication almost lost these days so that they can get to know each other on a personal human level once again!!

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 who come to enjoy the gently rolling countryside, Hearst Castle, the uncrowded beaches, wine tasting at dozens of wineries minutes away, the Dunes, quaint historic villages, great restaurants close by, biking along country lanes, kayaking and boating, bird watching, hiking, and much more!

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 and relaxation with 24-hour running brook and waterfalls.

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!

GREAT VACATION HOME

  • 5 of 5
This home served our family incredibly well during July 4th weekend. We had nearly 30 in our group and it was great to have everyone stay together under one roof but have the privacy of our own rooms. Close to stores and the beach the location was great and extremely private. Plenty of parking as well. Definitely recommend for anyone with large groups!

AMAZING HOUSE FOR A STAFF RETREAT!

  • 5 of 5
A luxury house and a wonderful stay! We had 30 people and they all slept in comfortable beds! Rooms are clean and everything was like a hotel. since it used to be a B&B. Dining room is huge, everybody can sit in the dining room having dinner at the same time. Oh don't miss the beautiful garden! I would say this will be a place for my wedding in the future! Gina was warm and made everything in the inn perfect to live in. good location as well. 3 miles away from Pismo Beach which has a ton of people visiting on the weekend. A shopping area is located close to the beach as well! The best clam chowder I have ever had in Splash cafe!

I would recommend staying here for large groups. Don't say you cannot find a huge house fitting 30 or even more people! Get this and you won't be disappointed!

We had our wedding here in August 2013. Everything was perfect! This is such a beautiful hidden location if you want to have a small intimate wedding. The garden is perfect and Gina was so accommodating and helpful.

WEDDING AND WEEKEND RENTAL

  • 5 of 5
In October 2013 my husband and I had our wedding at Abella Garden Inn. We had both sides of our immediate family stay at the inn which made things very special, as well as accommodating. The home and grounds are beautiful and majestic. The owner, Gina, is detailed, kind, warm and a joy! Gina answered all of my questions and made our day unique and trouble free. Each room was large, comfortable and provided all amenities needed for an inn. Lots of room for all of our family. Kitchen, dining and living room has all the room you will need for 30 people. She arranged for chairs and tables for the wedding, had her grounds beautifully landscaped and was intricate down to every detail. The overall ambiance of the whole inn and grounds is quite wonderful! We fell in love from the moment we saw it! I am very happy that we chose this location and our families loved being so close and sharing the weekend together. Abella Garden Inn is like no other place you have ever stayed!

SCHUSSEL FAMILY REUNION

  • 5 of 5
Fabulous! Wonderful! Perfect ! These are the words our family of 35 would use to express our thoughts on Abella Garden Inn. The experience of being able to all be under one roof was amazing. We have been having reunions since 1991 and always need two or three cabins or homes to accomodate our size. Abella gave us the luxury of a home with the size and amenities to fit everyones needs. The beds are comfortable, the bedding luxurious, and the size of the dining room let us enjoy each others company during mealtime. The backyard setting with the two areas made it ideal for the kids to play in one while adults enjoyed visiting in another.

Our family ages, 5 months to 88 years, enjoyed outside games, a baby shower, evening festivities, and made many lifelong memories. We thank Gina, our host, for providing everything we needed. The kitchen was well stocked with every pan and gadget needed to made three meals a day for our group. The extra refrigerators in the garage were a bonus and let us store water and cold drinks close to outside activities. The younger folk were happy to have wifi connections to the outside world, while the older crowd enjoyed the quiet of the neighborhood.

We would recommend staying at Abella for any size group but especially large parties. Thank you again for a memorable vacation Gina.
