Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 3

Imagine a gorgeous tropical cabana on a 1-1/2 acre estate, nestled in the Montecito foothills, surrounded by palms, lush exotic plants, and colorful flowers.

Now...are you ready to make memories that will last a lifetime?

Out your front door, you will find a secluded and completely private natural pool where you may swim and relax anytime of the day.

Explore the close by sandy beaches, hike in the nearby pristine mountains, check out the interesting restaurants and shops in Santa Barbara, go wine-tasting in Santa Ynez, or even sail or kayak in the surf.

Ask us for recommendations and we will be thrilled to assist you in any way that we can. We want your memories of your stay with us to be extra special!

In the evening, when you decide to leave the crowds behind, you may return to your quiet retreat and soak yourself in the healing warmth of your very own outdoor private spa. Then, take a moment, survey the heavens, and when you see a shooting star, make a wish!

Overlooking the pool, rest and restore yourself privately in our authentic Indonesian tea house pavilion. Yoga, meditation, or just plain relaxation will be yours in our very tranquil and almost unbelievable tropical setting.

Note: The owners, Dino and Florida Ohanian, live on the 1-1/2 acre premises in a separate and completely detached house. That said, we very much want to respect your complete privacy if this is a concern...please let us know if this is of importance.

About Dino Ohanian

Note: The owners, Dino and Florida Ohanian, live on the 1-1/2 acre premises in a separate and completely detached house. That said, we very much want to respect your complete privacy if this is a concern...please let us know if this is of importance. It is our wish that you will create memories to last a lifetime and we want to be absolutely sure that those memories are of the highest quality as far as YOUR wishes!

Dino Ohanian purchased this villa in 2003

Why Dino Ohanian chose Montecito

We came here for a weekend stay much like our guests are contemplating and we fell in love with this area just as if we were teenagers 'falling in love' for the first time...We were in escrow to buy this property within two weeks...and have never looked back.

What makes this villa unique

One of the most uniques benefits of this property is that we completely created it from the top to bottom. It took us eight years and untold loads of sweat to design and create this tropical haven for ourselves...and now we find no greater pleasure than sharing it with others!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My wife and I have stayed in Santa Barbara many times before, and this is the most beautiful and private location we have ever enjoyed. The pool and landscaping were amazing. Dino, the property owner, was wonderful to work with and very concerned about our comfort. Staying in a hotel that would offer a similar experience would be at 3 times the cost. We are definitely coming back!

Lovely weekend in Santa Barbara!

  • 5 of 5

Cabana Las Floras was better than described in the photos and website.

Dino and Florida have created a comfortable, beautiful hideaway.

We will definitely be back.

Romantic Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Perfect setting for a private exclusive getaway. We spent 10days and loved it all. The gardens are phenomenal , pool and spa are clean and inviting.

Cabana was comfortable and the bed was great, even though we are used to a King size.

Montecito and Santa Barbara have lots of great places to eat. Dino will clue you in and Florida knows the nail spas...

if and when we return to the area we will stay with them again.

Relaxing never looked so good!

  • 5 of 5

A delightfully relaxing retreat! So nice to choose whether to be a part of the touristy scene or be tucked away from it all. A pleasurable experience filled with gardens and warm and friendly hosts.

Beautiful Property with Fantastic Hosts

  • 5 of 5

This is the 15th year that my husband and I have stayed at this property as part of our wedding anniversary celebration. The property is gorgeous, even more beautiful than the pictures on the HomeAway site. The cabana is immaculate and beautifully decorated. We were worried this year that the property may have been damaged as a result of the Montecito mudslides but were happy to find out that the property was in excellent condition. Dino and Florida are outstanding hosts and we feel like we are visiting friends when we stay there.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Seriously. If you think the pictures look good just WAIT until you get there! It’s beyond what you could ever imagine and when you are there you probably still won’t be able to believe where you are. It’s a dream land. No second guessing it. Everything is within driving distance as far as food and entertainment go. Not much of a night life in the city but you’re going there to relax, right? Only other thing to mention is they may have yard workers there during your stay, Dino will let you know about it. They stay out of your way so no worries. The main house is also closer than the pictures lead on but again, it wasn’t an issue at all.

We had a great time here! Definitely would recommend. 100%
