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.

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

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!!!

Perfect, as usual!

  • 5 of 5

This stay was as wonderful as our previous stay with Deni, in the Garden House. The gorgeous yard, with mature trees was especially beautiful this year. The Garden House was spotless, and completely stocked with all essentials plus some. Communication with your host is easy and you'll find you feel like you're visiting a friend, as Deni is always welcoming and goes above and beyond to assure you have a pleasent stay. I can't imagine staying anywhere else when visiting the Fresno area.

Relaxing

We had a wonderful time at the garden house. Everything we needed was there, the house is close to everywhere we went which was great!

Deni is such an amazing host. She made us feel like she knew us and that made us feel like we were home. We definitely recommend this place and we will definitely be back.

Owner's Response: It was such a short stay. You should make this an annual trip for you and each time do some exploring. The National Parks are great, but so is our local zoo, lakes and even theatre. Please come back!

An oasis worth visiting!

  • 5 of 5

Located in a quiet neighborhood close to stores and restraunts. Parking was in a garage. The gardens were very pretty. The house was decorated beautifully and very spacious. Nice, clean, well maintained and very peaceful, The Garden House and Deni were delightful! We will definetly stay there again if we are in the area.

Owner's Response: It was such a short stay! We didn't get much time to visit. Please come back when you come to visit your daughter. (If she chooses Cali for her college choice.). It's not always so hot. You might have been here during the hottest week of the summer. Deni

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.
