Property description

This 6,000 sq. ft. luxury INN is one of a small handful of properties in the entire state of California that can accommodate up to 30 family members in ONLY ONE HOME---the only way a family can experience a “true" family reunion!

HISTORY
Built in 1984 to be a luxury, country-style Bed and Breakfast Inn, this property operated as such until 2012 when the only changes made were replacing the words “Bed and Breakfast” with the words “Vacation Rental.”

The Automobile Club of Southern California inspects this property annually and we have been awarded 3.5 diamonds for our suites, 3.4 diamonds for our grounds, and 3.3 diamonds overall-----Hotel-Style accommodations at vacation rental rates----Visit our website at abellagardeninn dot com

GUEST ROOMS
There are 7 spacious and romantic, garden-theme suites with full baths and a 3-bedroom suite with a full bath. Select suites include a fireplace, window seat, and skylight.

Amenities: The suites include sitting areas (couch, love seat, table and chairs, or rockers), robes, feather bed, down comforter, luxurious 450-thread-count cotton sheets, large fluffy towels, hair dryer, iron and ironing board, private space heater, fan, central heating and air conditioning, and many thoughtful and romantic appointments throughout.

THE GARDENS—1/3 of an acre
The upper “rose” garden is perfect for family lawn games. The lower “fantasy” garden includes a babbling brook, waterfalls, and pond. The gardens have tables and enough chairs to accommodate up to 30 guests for outdoor dining, a bathroom, and the Garden Room that contains washers, dryers, large worktable, and 3 extra refrigerators—6 total on site!

LOCATION
Located ONE (1) MINUTE off U.S. Highway 101, this property is hidden from the outside world creating its own private retreat. It is conveniently located to all area attractions, and is in the heart of the Central Coast. It is only 15 minutes from San Luis Obispo, 2 miles from Pismo Beach, and under one hour from Hearst Castle. Dozens of wineries are minutes away. It is within walking distance of the historic village of Arroyo Grande, a charming little village with an old-fashioned ice-cream soda fountain shop, Heritage Museum, "Historic" Swinging Bridge, Farmer's Market, Lopez Lake, and many charming little specialty stores. Wineries, beaches, dunes, scenic drives, nature walks, fine restaurants, and shopping outlets are minutes away.

CLIMATE
Being close to the beach, temperatures are mild and comfortable year round; our central air conditioning is hardly ever used.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1989

About the owner: I was born in Italy. Family is "Life!" That's me in the picture with my 2 grandsons---life is wonderful!! I worked the Inn as a bed and breakfast for 23 years and now I offer it to your family and friends to enjoy and make many memories as I have done with thousands of guests, family, and friends throughout the years.

Why the Owner Chose Arroyo Grande, CA, USA:
A true family reunion requires that everyone stay in one home and not be spread out into 2 or 3. This property is the only one of its kind in this area that offers exactly that while also providing luxury accommodations in large suites most with private, full baths. You will not find another property in this area that can accommodate up to 32 guests in one home. Since it was built to be a bed and breakfast inn, the emphasis for the square footage was placed on the bedrooms with private, full baths and quality beds and bedding. The Dining Room and Living Room are also very spacious and accommodate up to 30 so everyone can eat together, play games, or relax and visit. The two lovely gardens are perfect for lawn games or outdoor dining. They are also hidden from the outside world and are ideal for intimate weddings. Imagine being only 2 miles from the beach and experiencing comfortable temperatures year round. Add to that a standard of cleanliness, details, and accommodations found only in professional establishments, and this property is hard to beat.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
1. One HOME with large suites with private full baths. 2. Still maintained as a luxury Inn. 3. Inspected annually by AAA and continue to be awarded 3 diamonds. 4. Centrally located and easily accessible to all the small towns and sights that make the Central Coast very desirable as a destination location. 5. 1/3-acre gardens for outdoor games, outdoor dining, and relaxation. 6. Immaculately clean. They say we should smell the roses; well, here you can actually smell the roses and the jasmine, and orange blossoms, and.....enjoy life and those you love.
