“The Abella B&B: What a Romatic Inn is Supposed to Be”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2011

Stayed over Valentine's Day weekend 2011. The Abella just oozes with charm, elegance, and romance. The Calalilly Suite was was simply perfect. Superb amenities: champagne, in-suite spa, couples massages! Innkeeper Gina (all 4'-9 1/4" of her) was a pure joy to meet ... so much love, life, and happiness! Couldn't have picked a better destination for our 16th Annivesary.

What a wonderful time we had and we want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the personalized, charming, delightful experience we had with you and at the Abella Inn. We love it... and get this your pictures you took of of turned out better than our own photogragher from our own wedding day. We love you!!!! Your are such a fantastic person and thank you again from Steve and Suzanne on giving us the best 2nd year anniversary anyone could have. Gina, the owner, renewed our vows for us and arranged the whole day for us... she was fantastic!!!
We can say without a doubt we have been to alot of B&B's but Abella Inn is the best overall perfection we have ever experienced. We love it and will continue to be regular customers!!!! Go Gina Go!!!

Been to B&B's before and this one if very well cared for and comfortable. Feels very safe and warm, like being at grandma's house. It is very clean and the beds were comfortable. The gardens were beautiful and the hostess was super sweet , food was great, etc. Only negative I could point out is it is very close to the 101 so if you are a light sleeper, you may have a problem with this. Also,the other guests were nice but the night we were there they enjoyed the gardens and adult beverages until late into the night/morning. Doesn't mean the same type of people will be there if you visit though, so I still highly recommend the ammenities.

Gina, the owner of Abella, is a gregarious multi-talented Italian woman who embodies the warmth and caring reminiscent of the generations of people whose heritage she shares by opening her house and arms to all who come to stay at Abella. Everything is coordinated perfectly in color, pattern, and comfort. Gina prepares the perfect breakfast for her guests and leaves the food in the kitchen ready for consumption the following morning. No detail is left unnoticed. To spend time at Abella with Gina as your hostess is like traveling in time to a land where every detail works in sync with every other detail in a composition that provides the guest with leisurely time to see the environs of Arroyo Grande and return to a home away from home at the end of the day.

My dear friend,

After 21 years of meeting thousands of wonderful people, I've learned that I simply cannot please everyone no matter how accommodating I try to be!!! It sounds as though your reservation was in the middle of the week. Mid-week reservations offer a nice rate reduction and offer my guests the opportunity to have me serve their breakfast at 9:30 or they may help themselves to breakfast that I make in advance at whatever time they wish. My guests love the fact that I allow them to "take over the Inn" and make themselves at home, but evidently you did not like that. Sounds like we must have had bad communication, and I thank you for taking time from your busy day to write a review none the less.

My love to you , Gina
Your little Italian Innkeeper

This was our 1st time to stay at a B&B. It was more than I could ever imagine. I was told by a friend about it. The name sounded interesting. It is a Hidden Gem. Gina the Owner/Innkeeper makes the place what it is! Quiet, serenity, I could go on. My husband and I were were very pleaesd with the place. We had the Forget Me Not room. The day we checked out we were treated to a Yummy breakfast cooked by Gina with Heartfelt conversation. We reccomend this place to anyone that wants to get some "Peace & Quiet"

Hello, we are 2 girls from Belgium and Morocco. We arrived in Gina's home (abella garden) totally by chance (thanks our GPS). It was in the evening and the beautyfull lanterns guide us to the desk office. Gina welcom us like Princess evenif we did'nt have any reservation. What's a wonderfull surprise!!!! The rooms are so pretty and extremly clean. And the most of the best : the delicious breakfast (home-made) and the relaxing garden. Gina is a good advicer for restaurants and beaches not very far away (by car it's better of cause). We have only positif points and it was really the best accomodation of our trip in California.
