About Deni Argain
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
Why Deni Argain chose Fresno
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.
What makes this Studio unique
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!!!

Fabulous in Fresno
Beautiful, friendly, fun, and wonderful in every detail. Can’t wait to go back!! Lovely neighborhood and darling hostess.
My gift of peace and tranquility
The stay here was beyond wonderful and was just what I needed after long and painful days with a lifetime friend who was in need of my visit here in Fresno. The serenity, peacefulness, and solitude were welcome gifts in the my evenings here. The studio was amazing and lacked for nothing. Thank you again Deni for all of your kindness and thoughtfulness
Best VRBO Ever
We were in Fresno for a family wedding, and stayed 3 nights. Deni had everything ready and in order. She welcomed us with smiles and hugs. The Garden House also seemed to emanate smiles and hugs. It is beautiful. The Birds Nest was a perfect spot for morning coffee and meditation. We did not spend a lot of time at the Garden House because there were so many wedding-related activities, and we toured the national parks and the underground gardens (these are incredible, unlike anything we've ever seen). We found Fresno to be a lovely city, Deni a lovely and gracious hostess, and recommended the Garden House to our family members who will be revisiting the area. It's a 5+ Star VRBO.
Mary, my dear, thank you. I wish we could have hosted your family gathering so I could have met your family, but I am looking forward to hearing from them, and you, in the future.
Have a wonderful summer.
Home away from home
I stay here whenever I can when I am in Fresno. It’s lovely and Deni is an awesome host
And you are an awesome guest!. I look forward to your next visit. Hope it’s soon.
This was our 2nd time staying here, the bed is very comfortable and Deni is a sweetheart
The apartment is perfect, you can cook if you want and being able to park in the garage was nice. We enjoyed sitting on the patio in the morning drinking coffee. .
This is the first time I have received the low score which tells me I need to attend to something. Please let me know if anything needs to be improved and I will jump right on it! It was great seeing you guys again!
This is a wonderful place to stay and Deni is an excellent host. Delicious fresh pastries welcomed our arrival. The "Garden House" is located on a quiet street in a well established upscale residential area of Fresno. The cottage is quiet, comfortable, well decorated and of sufficient size to feel quite homey. The bed was the most comfortable of our trip. The patio is nicely landscaped and provides a peaceful setting to enjoy beautiful spring days. The cottage includes a full size refrigerator along with a washer and dryer and in garage parking. All the conveniences of home made us feel as if we were. We highly recommend this property. It is a diamond waiting to be discovered and enjoyed!
You guys were the best! It was a busy week for me and so sorry we couldn’t spend more time visiting, but you were busy too with family. I love my beautiful drawing of the chickens and the beautiful necklace you made. How wonderful to get gifts!!
See you soon, I hope.
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.
