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. With the doors open, your senses are magically transported outdoors, under the clear blue sky, surrounded by year-round bloom, with the lull of waterfalls in the mist.

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.

About Gina

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

Why Gina chose Arroyo Grande

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!

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 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!

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!

We Loved It

  • 5 of 5
The Abella Garden Inn was the PERFECT place for our group of eight couples to enjoy a few days vacationing in the California Central Coast. The Inn is beautiful, very comfortable, impeccably clean and neat, and has plenty of space. We loved the very large dining room for our eat-in meals, the large great room and outside patio for socializing, and our individually decorated, spacious bedrooms, each having a full bath. And the fact that all of the rooms were under one roof made it feel as if we were in someone’s home.
It was also an ideal home base from which to experience a variety of activities. For those of us into tasting wine, the Inn is located within 40 minutes of the great wineries in the Paso Robles area to the north as well as those existing in the Santa Ynez Valley to the south--and many in between. Members of the group spent time at the beach (Pismo Beach and Avila Beach), but because of our senior status skipped the ATVs that are popular down the beach along the dunes. Some found a wonderful off-road bike trail near Avila Beach, where they rented both regular and electric-assist bikes. Also there are plenty of good places to eat in the area, and the famous San Luis Obispo Street Fair on Thursday nights is a must. But during much of our evening time, we just sat around the Inn catching up with old friends.
The owner, Gina, is quite personable and organized as well as hard working and very proud of her property. When we checked in, she had everything ready for us on time. She gave us a tour, explained where everything was, and simply requested that we treat her property as they would their own.
Before arriving, a couple of us had wondered if there would be any effect resulting from the Inn’s close proximity to Highway 101. Happily we soon found that street noise was hardly noticeable anywhere inside and was not even a significant factor when sitting and talking outside on the back patio or gazebo. In fact, its location was a positive for us, since it took only a few minutes from our private parking lot to get on the highway where we scattered to various daily activities.
EVERYONE LOVED the Abella Garden Inn and hopes to return.

What a stay?.....A picture of million words....

  • 5 of 5
Honest and incredible owner who is fun but very firm on her property. It was the most amazing welcoming us into the Inn when we arrived. After the tour, we didn't need to read anymore....Gina is excellent in telling us everything needed to know about the property. The best of all, she's able to provide us what we needed for our 7th annual couple's retreat with 10 bedrooms...wow....just like what you see in the pictures on this site or even better. Just follow what Gina ask for then EVERYTHING will be fine. She's very organize and will make you happy about her Inn. Will see you again...Gina...I will send you a few pictures....Thanks for the quick refund of our deposit and my group are all happy about it.....ua tsaug....thank you....

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!

Beautiful Wedding Location

  • 5 of 5
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.
