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 Central Valley California

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!!!

Restful Oasis

  • 5 of 5

I will never stay at a Fresno hotel again after spending three nights at this lovely cottage. In a quiet neighborhood and near my favorite shopping center. Deni made me and my six-year old grandson feel welcome. Deni's little dog is too cute. I'll plan my next Fresno trip way ahead of time so I can book the Garden House!

Owner's Response: Your stay was way too short. Come back soon, and share your darling grandson with me. Charlie has been out to the Garden House a couple of times looking for Andy. See you soon.

The most beautiful yards in a beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

Deni is a wonderful host. Even though much was going on in her life and she wasn't able to be home at the time of my arrival the garage door was open for me and the lovely cottage was easily accessible. Her unobtrusive thoughtfulness was evident when needed throughout my stay.

All things needed for a comfortable stay were there. The cottage and setting are a wonderful respite from a chaotic overgrown unban area.--Thanks for the terrific stay!--Pam Larsen

Owner's Response: Pam, It was an interesting week for both of us. I'm so glad you were able to catch some California sun while you were here. I think you went home to rain. When you need to dry out again, you know you have a place here with me. Deni

Lovely Retreat

  • 5 of 5

I booked Deni's garden studio apartment during a visit to my aunt in nearby Clovis. The space is as lovely as any you can imagine - the pictures don't do it justice. As I told Deni, I could move in and live in this apartment! To top it all off, you have access to the beautiful courtyard Deni has created just outside the apartment. The interior space is beautifully decorated with Deni's artistic flair and furnished perfectly for a visitor's comfort. And don't miss out on cuddles from her sweet pup Charlie!

Owner's Response: Charlie just adored you. If I couldn't find him, he was at your door. Now that you have discovered my little hideaway, I hope you come back soon and often. Bisous. (Kisses) Deni

Perfect Fresno Getaway

  • 5 of 5

WONDERFUL! This is a very nice spot to stay when visiting Fresno. You literally feel like you are in another world when you walk into the studio. My husband and I were visiting his daughter so we wanted to find something that was "homey". THIS WAS IT!

Kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to have a home cooked meal. The KURIG makes it even better! We had lovely nights in the studio playing board games and having dinner. The owner is absolutely lovely and her new dog (rescue) charlie is a doll! Bed is super cozy...if i would change anything it would be the pillows! they are really flat but just folding them over does the trick AND the cottage has a plenty of linen in the closet so you can just go get another pillow, which i did! YOU ARE AWESOME! thanks for a wonderful stay! we will be back!

Owner's Response: Hi Tracey, So glad you mentioned the pillows. I replace them often but probably not often enough. I'm on my way out right now to get new ones!! 😚� Hurry back!!

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.
