SOME VRBO REVIEWS
The Inn was perfect for our intimate garden wedding. We rented the entire inn for our guests during the wedding weekend and loved the beautiful, unique and private rooms. Our guests were gushing about the decor; the inn was a gorgeous backdrop for our vintage-themed wedding. We will cherish the amazing photos we were able to take in this outstanding space for many years to come. All of the spaces are well-kept and very comfortable. The gardens and common areas were fantastic for all of our wedding weekend events, from the ceremony and reception, to the welcome dinner in the formal dining room, to playing board games in the den. We could not have found a better fit for our event. Gina, the owner, was welcoming and warm and made the whole experience enjoyable. She keeps her place immaculate and treats her guests like family. We would most definitely stay at the inn again and highly recommend this vacation rental!
EXCELLENT FAMILY REUNION FOR 25+ PEOPLE!
Finding this place was like finding a needle in a haystack. Our family has been gathering for family reunions for over 30 years. Since our family is growing rapidly, it is increasingly harder and harder to find a place that fits all of us. We usually have to rent 3 houses which is never easy to find close together. This is the first time we have been able to stay in one house all together with the luxury of having a suite (including full bathrooms) for each family. We cooked breakfast and dinner every night of the reunion, and this is also the first time we have all been able to eat together in one large dining room. The kitchen has 3 large refrigerators so that also made things easier. The kids (we had 9 ranging from newborn to age 5) were able to play on the grass enclosed by steps and a gazebo. The rooms were upstairs so it made it easy to put the kids down for naps throughout the day with monitors. The laundry room has 2 washers and 4 dryers in a separate laundry area. While we were here, we went to the beach, wine tasting, bike riding, farmers markets, antique shopping, aquarium, etc. It was an amazing reunion (property) and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a large group vacation (home). We stayed for a week and still didn't have time to do everything we wanted. Gina, the owner, is extremely accommodating and will work with you on unique circumstances. For example, my cousin with special needs was provided a twin bed in her parents' room to make it easier for her to feel comfortable. My family has had some very bad experiences through the years of finding places online that don't meet your expectations, or poor locations, or that claim to sleep 25+ but come to find out that's with air mattresses and futons...the Abella Garden Inn is everything it claims to be and more! I am still getting compliments from my family that it is the best place we have ever stayed that accommodated all of our needs. I am so thankful that I found this jewel and will be happy to recommend it to anyone. RICHARDSON FAMILY REUNION 2012 (7/8/2012-7/15/2012)
KIRKPATRICK FAMILY REUNION
We searched for months to find a suitable location to accommodate our family (ages 4 through 90) in celebration of milestone birthdays, anniversaries, etc. The search initially was done on the internet and several locations in the Paso Robles area appeared to fit the bill. However, we decided to visit the prospective homes, and we were absolutely horrified!
Though we love the VRBO website, they apparently have little control over the misrepresentation of properties. What we found were that several of the properties were 'staged.' They turned out to be either flop houses in very poor condition or in very remote, poorly accessible locations; UNTIL we came upon this gem!
Abella Garden Inn is everything as pictured. As a matter of fact, the pictures do not really do it justice! Each bedroom was amazing and the guests all had their own private bathrooms. It is in a great location if you want the beach, wine country, or just a sight-seeing experience; we enjoyed all of them! We were able to congregate every night as a group in the beautiful living and dining rooms. There is a kitchen fully stocked with dishes and cooking materials if needed. You are also within walking distance to the quaint historic area of Arroyo Grande and some great restaurants. Would we recommend this to friends and family? ABSOLUTELY! – Dianne Kirkpatrick, Florida

'The Abella Garden Inn is a unique gem, just like the proprietor, Gina. The Inn and the rooms are immaculate and very elegant yet comfortable.
