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!

Perfect place for a family gathering or any responsible group!

  • 5 of 5

For my wife's recent birthday we had a large family gathering at this amazing property as it was close to our "City to Sea" half marathon race that took place on 10/9. The house is a beautiful B&B type property where everyone can be under the same roof... even if you have a large group!

The property has it's own private parking lot, gorgeous manicured grounds that glow with twinkle lights in the evenings, and a large enough living room and dining area to accommodate a sizable gathering without feeling cramped.

* The rooms were spacious, wallpaper and decor matches the style/era of the inn throughout. The beds were VERY COMFORTABLE and every room has it's own bathroom.

* Dining room has at least 4 tables making large-scale meals easy to do in one place without being cramped

* Kitchen has 3 fridges with plenty of cooling space and freezer space for the food and drinks you'd likely bring with a large group of people

* Front living space is large and leads into glass doors that open to a patio area with more seating -- every night there would be a few of us enjoying the outdoor patio and talking over a glass of wine looking at the twinkle lights up in the trees of the garden.

I enjoyed my time at the property and my only regret was not staying for another day or two! I hope to come back for a future event where I can stay for a longer time.

Family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a family reunion with 17 adults and 10 children. Every family had their own room, and was wonderful to be all under one roof. The rooms are all spacious, and the grounds are beautiful. The dining room was so large, everyone had a seat for breakfast and dinner.

Reunion with friends

  • 5 of 5

I spent 3 days with 19 friends in this beautiful house. It was like staying in someones home. Very clean and comfortable. Gina, the owner, couldn't have been more helpful with everything from making the reservations to walking me through the house to show me how things worked. The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. The fun things to do in Arroyo Grande were just a short walk away. The house was everything we were looking for in place to stay together. This house exceeded our expectations. We were more than pleased and will recommend this house to anyone looking for a great place for a large group. We would stay here again.

Great Place for Team Building

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying here. I needed accomodations for 14 employees (4 women and 10 men) and Gina's clean and spacious house was the perfect fit. Gina takes pride in her space and it shows as soon as you walk in. The entire house was spotless. Since this was the first team retreat, I was unfaliliar with the area and Gina provided me with a list of the local grocery stores and directions. Everything thing in the house worked; the heater, air conditioner, water pressure, timing for the outside lights, etc.

We look forward to returning next year.

Family Reunion

  • 4 of 5

We just got back from a three night/four day stay at the enchanting Abella Garden Inn of the family of 24 could not have been happier! Gina explained everything accurately prior to our commitment and gave me a detailed walk through when we arrived. The property was completely outfitted with everything we needed and the the place was spotless! There was plenty of room for our entire group in both the living room and the dining room. Everyone loved having there own bath and commented on how comfortable their beds were, which can be an issue at some locations....Not Here! The yard was immaculate and provided another wonderful gathering spot for our crew and there was was plenty of off street parking.

If you are looking for a nice location on the Central Coast, this is it! The Old Town section of Arroyo Grande is quaint and fun, while Pismo Beach is just down Grand Ave. if you are looking for recreation and beach time.

Wonderful house and great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful four-day stay at Gina's house at the end of September with our group of 14 adults. We could not have found more suitable, hospitable accommodations.

You cannot beat the Arroyo Grande location for visiting the Central Coast, especially in the Fall. Nearby are beaches, San Luis Obispo (shopping), Cambria, Paso Robles wineries, golf courses and Hearst Castle. It's convenient to activities for a range of interests and our group took advantage of that. That sounds like a commercial but it's true. It's a beautiful location with a lot to see and do.

The decor throughout the house is very inviting. It was very clean, the kitchen and dining/family rooms were well equipped and maintained, the bedrooms were very comfortable. ​We slept in the English Rose room and it was quiet in spite of the house's location near the freeway. We liked being freeway-close for our out-of-state visitors and for the easy access to north/south Hwy 101. Our bed was very comfortable.The grounds were beautiful.

Three refrigerators and an abundance of small appliances, flatware, plates, etc. made the kitchen very large-group user friendly. Plenty of towels and easy to access mugs above a beverage station with multiple coffee makers also made it a pleasure.

Although it wasn't required we assigned rooms to our guests. This was helpful since the rooms vary and we wanted to offer king-sized beds to taller guests. Also, if guests were to leave something behind we'd be more able to trace it to the owner. This is a very big house.

Something small but important to me (with chemical allergies) was the cleanliness of the place without the overwhelming smell of harsh cleaners. Really liked that.

We received a full refund of our deposits and quickly. We left the house in the same condition as we would leave a hotel room (with the addition of putting trash in the barrels which are very easily accessible) and were notified the day after check-out that we would receive a full refund of our deposits. The checks arrived in the mail the next day.

Gina was great at communicating by email--my preference--and responded very quickly to all ( we had a lot) our questions.

Our stay was wonderful and we could not recommend Gina's house more highly and the way she made us feel welcome when we arrived. Thanks, Gina, for everything.
