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!!!

It is important to me that my home be loved and respected as much I do. No overnight guests without prior authorization. Gatherings over 6 people need to be cleared with me prior. It is a very quiet neighborhood. If pets are on premises, you will need to pick up after them. Thanks, Deni

Fresno Wedding Weekend
We truly enjoyed our stay at this property. We were given instructions to make entering and leaving the property very safe and secure. This studio is separate from the owners property so it’s very private, quiet, and cozy. The backyard of Deni’s home is lush and beautiful. We even enjoyed watching the bees come and go from their hives (they are not a threat if you stay here). Deni has done so much to make your stay comfortable. She cares about your visit and everything we could imagine was available.... comfortable king sized bed, well stock kitchen, clean bathroom, huge TV, remote control curtains, National Park maps, every detail has been considered. I would love to return.
Jane. I am so glad your visit to Fresno was a pleasant one. I would very much love for you to visit again. Have a Merry Christmas.
Quiet garden getaway
Loved our stay in this large garden studio. Decorated in French garden style and complete with everything you need as well as thoughtfulness in all the details. Deni was friendly and inviting. There’s even garage parking. All in all we would absolutely stay here again.
It was great having you here. Come back anytime!
Not our first time here but will absolutely stay here again.
We always love our time at the Garden House which is why whenever we are in the area, we end up staying here. From the quiet house, to the wonderful views (now with a fascinating bee hive to watch make honey), we love everything about this place. Thank you again for a wonderful stay!
Great little place in a quiet neighborhood. Deni was wonderful - showed us around the place and was there if we needed her (without being invasive). Only downfall for me, being on the shorter side, was the shower - the angle of the head made it less than comfortable to bathe. Will definitely stay here again when we're in town!
Janet, I wish you would have told me about the shower head. It is being replaced this weekend, in you honor.
Wonderful cottage feel. Loved the garden areas, especially the tree house. Demi is a gracious host and has created quite a relaxing oasis. We would definitely stay again
Sheri, it would be great for you to return! Anytime!
Great place to stay

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.
