Envision yourself driving through a private neighborhood within the Fig Garden area, and once you arrive at your destination, you are greeted by two rustic garden gates that leads to a private front courtyard with a pavered, landscaped pathway to The Garden House. Whether you are on a weekly business trip, seeing family or planning a vacation around the fantastic 3 National Parks or lake regions near Fresno, The Garden House is a perfect place for you to relax and spend private time. The Garden House is a large (approximately 800 square feet), cozy studio apartment decorated in a French garden motif, which includes: bedroom/sitting area with king size bed, full bath & shower, fully equipped kithcen (stove/oven, microwave, full size refrigerator & complete set of cooking utensils). The family room area is fully equipted with 47' large screen HDTV, BluRay player and new sleeper sofa with oversized chair. The Garden House is detached from the main house to provide complete privacy, and includes the use of one parking space of the enclosed garage spaces.
Looking out through the two large windows to the rear yard, you will see a canopy of mature trees and lawn area bordering.
Oh by the way, if you have a pooch, we are dog friendly.
Also, do not forget for your security of both your auto and personal items, The Garden House comes with the use of one bay in the garage with automatic door.
Hi! My name is Deni, and I am the owner of this beautiful home in Fresno, California. The Garden House is a separate building on a 1/2 acre lot. This is a custom designed home by well known architect, Cliff May, who designed the original California Ranch House. I spend my days painting in my on-site studio, working on a new mosaic project or just enjoying the company of my sweet dog, Charlie. Most days you will also find me working in my garden. Everyone that has stayed in the Garden House has considered it a second home and me a lifelong friend.
Deni Argain purchased this studio in 2012
This beautiful California Ranch House sits on a half acre lot full of trees and gardens. My guests have a private courtyard, complete with comfortable outdoor furniture and barbecue. My home is a separate structure which gives you total privacy. The garden house has a two car garage attached to it, and is used by my guests. I've also added a new stackable washer and dryer for your convenience. The neighborhood I live in is called Fig Garden, and the shopping village is nearby with a lot of great stores, both local boutiques as well as the mainstays like The Gap, Chico's, Coldwater Creek and Eddie Bauer. There are a couple of dog parks nearby, for those of you traveling with pets.
The Garden House is not only cozy, but very private. When you stay at a major brand hotel, you are staying in my opinion, at a very sterile and commercial environment. When you stay at The Garden House, you can relax like you are at your home, but without all of the constant distractions. So imagine getting out of your car and entering the large two gates into the private front courtyard, which is surrounded with a canopy of tall mature trees, an adult-sized treehouse as you make your way to your private getaway, The Garden House. As soon as you hit the gate, you know YOU ARRIVED AT A SPECIAL PLACE!!!
We had a fabulous time at Deni's place. The studio was beautiful and warm, the bed was incredibly comfortable, and there was great water pressure for showers! We enjoyed having a quiet place to rest while visiting Fresno.
We loved our time here. Easy access, garage parking, quiet and secure. This property was perfect and the home owner was an awesome host. If we find ourselves visiting Fresno again, we will definitely book this VRBO.
Absolutely Awesome!! Enough said I promise!!!!
Deni has put together one of the most wonderful vacation rentals in the San Joaquin Valley. She has tended to all the details of the Garden House. Keurig coffee maker complete with coffee both regular and decaf, bottled water in the refrigerator, etc. Even a large bowl of Candy sitting on the coffee table. Extremely comfortable bed and bedding with serene, peaceful views of beautiful plants and trees. Very relaxing space one of the best VRBO's we have visited. If you are visiting Yosemite or any of the other nearby National or State Parks this is a wonderful place to stay. She is a wonderful host, very welcoming and helpful. The neighborhood is safe with lovely 60 plus year old well kept homes in the nicest area of Fresno close to wonderful restaurants and shopping.
The Garden House was lovely and Deni was the perfect hostess. The setting is beautiful, serene and as private as you would like. Deni is always available but never intrusive. The guest house is fully equipped and exceptionally clean. The location is ideal for access to Fresno or the national parks. We spent 3 days visiting Yosemite and Sequoia/Kings Canyon. Each park is only about an hour's drive away and shouldn't be missed. We highly recommend the Garden House for anyone visiting the Fresno area. Thanks Deni for a lovely accommodation.
We stayed in the Garden House for a getaway weekend. This is our second stay and it was just as enjoyable as the first. Perfect for our needs and plans. The previous reviews say it all, so not much we can add other than it is our hope to return again and again. Deni is a wonderful hostess and her property ideal.
The Garden House is nestled in an established residential area of Fig Garden in Northwest Fresno, and is a fantastic launching pad to day trips to Yosemite National Park, Kings Canyon National Park and Sequoia National Park. In addition, there are fantastic lakes nearby such as Bass Lake, Huntingtion Lake, Shaver Lake or Millerton Lake for boating, sailing, skiing and/or fishing.
Or if you would like to explore the Central California coastal communities of Morro Bay, Carmel/Monterrey, Pismo Beach or Cayucos they are just a short 2 hour drive away. On your way to the Central Coast, tour the wine cellars surrounding Paso Robles.
Also Fresno is home to the Fresno State Bulldogs and its successful baseball, basketball and football programs at the highest NCAA level. Or if you want to play a round of golf their are over 10 golf courses within a half hour drive or less, with the challenging Fig Garden Golf Course only 5 minutes away that is open to the public.
all pets require my preapproval. Please contact me regarding your pet prior to final booking.
