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, high speed wifi, 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.

Oh by the way, if you have a pooch, we are dog friendly.

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!!!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Came to Fresno for a wedding with my daughter and stayed at the Garden House. It’s a beautiful, fully furnished studio with a comfortable King bed and a pull out sofa. Everything you need is there. The owner has done a wonderful job stocking the apartment. The sitting areas outside are lovely and the house is very convenient to all of Fresno. Visited Sequoia NP and Yosemite NP while staying here. Great base camp for exploring. I would highly recommend!

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely host! Very comfortable and relaxing. Great convenient location in proximity to most anything you would need. Situated in an upscale and quiet residential area. The tree house was a bonus to enjoy the evenings. Having a garage for the rental was super. Great accommodations for two travelers or a couple. Deni is so sweet and accommodating. Loved it!

So much better than a hotel room!

  • 5 of 5

Traveling with my husband and college-age son, we enjoy having a bit more space. Deni's place was one large room, but we definitely had room to spread out. Room was quiet, AC was plenty cool and Deni was very welcoming and respectful of our privacy.

I booked this space based on it's glowing reviews. I do think the actual place is much prettier than the photos show. Also, nice location. Walkable neighborhood but close to lots of shops and restaurants. Deni's list of recommended restaurants was much appreciated!

My gift of peace and tranquility

  • 5 of 5

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

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.
