CABANA LAS FLORAS- A TROPICAL CABANA PARADISE WITH POOL, SPA, AND WIFI

Montecito Villa Rental Photos and Description

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Dear Dino and Florida,

We had such a wonderful time staying with you. Our apologies for not saying a proper good-bye.

Your place is amazing and we truly felt that we "lived" here...yet you were only a few steps away if the need arose.

Our trip to Santa Barbara was perfect and to a large extent your "oasis" was a big part of that. We're looking forward to a return trip (if you'll have us)!

Please keep in touch if you're ever on the East Coast.



Our Best,

Michael and Kandi

Unbeatable Oasis

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed in this amazing oasis recently and were blown away by the calm serenity yet close to everything in gorgeous Montecito. It was a perfect spot for us - and Dino and Florida are marvelous hosts. There when you need them, discreet when you don't. And Florida is a real pro when it comes to service and hospitality, showing up with wine, fruits, cheeses, just when you were needing a "little something". Dino was delightful, knowledgeable, and fun... we will be back for certain as we now have our own little place in Montecito - and 2 new friends. Forget the Biltmore... book this secret oasis! A great value, with warmth and character not found in a hotel.

We are the exception

  • 3 of 5
We booked a three night stay at this cabana. After reading the amazing reviews, I was counting down the days until our mini vacation. We've rented private homes/flats in London, Paris, Oregon, Palm Springs, etc. so I feel well versed on what these types of rentals can have to offer. Unfortunately we had a family emergency and left almost immediately after checking in so we did not get to enjoy the full experience but even so I feel as if there are a few things to note. First, while it is clearly mentioned this is a cabana I did not find it private whatsoever as you are in spitting distance to the owner's residence and the pool is feet from their back door. I take partial responsibility for the disappointment because it is clearly described as a cabana but the photos also do not show the proximity of the main house to the pool (it is a few feet to the left of the chaise lounges in the eighth photo). The grounds are walled so in that sense it is private but it's not really private from the main house. There were also a few upsells offered which I found a little odd - breakfast, a massage and an autographed book of the homeowner's nudes/poetry. On the plus side, it's situated in a very nice area, the owner goes out of his way to make dining suggestions, the pool house is incredibly well done and the grounds are well maintained.

Owner's Response: First of all, we want to thank you for coming to stay at our Cabana last August 11, 2014...We are truly sorry that you had to cut short your stay because of a family emergency...It is unfortunate because had you stayed you might have been very impressed by some of the special attentions we surprise our guests with.
That said, I want to address the specific concerns you voiced: I am sorry that you did not find the Cabana as private as you like, but it is clearly stated in our property description: "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."
You further stated that the Cabana is in "spitting distance" to the owner's residence...Actually it is more than 60 feet away...and the pool is over 80 feet away from the main house (not just a few feet from the chaise lounges)...I measured it myself as I just want to set the record straight.
And finally as I mentioned to you both before you left, I was very sorry that you had a "family emergency" and had to cut your stay short...But we wanted you to know that should you return, we would extend to you a generous discount.

Just spent two weeks at this cozy , comfortable , and beautiful La Cabana , It was everything we wanted for a long stay in Montecito . Our hosts were great - helpful and friendly . We found the location perfect for all our needs plus we found ourselves spending more time just hanging out at the pool reading due to the fact that the surroundings were calming and beautiful . I do not think you could find a better spot to relax and enjoy the area .

Paradise Found

This truly was an oasis. The property is beautiful. Dino is meticulous about his plants and you can see great care went into getting this property just right. I will stay again next time I'm in Santa Barbara. Check out Janine's Bakery and Restaurant in Montecito- great breakfast place,

A Most Enjoyable Experience

  • 5 of 5
We had an extended stay of 21 days at the Cabana Las Floras and it was a most enjoyable experience. The cabana was elegantly presented; a very tranquil place full of plants and flowers – in our case there were enormous orchid arrangements in both living room and bedroom. The Cabana stayed cool and comfortable even when the temperature rocketed to an unseasonable 100oF plus (and if you did get a bit warm the pool was just a few feet away.) The outside area was immaculate and beautiful, with a choice of places to eat al fresco, or just to sit and enjoy the tropical view. I don’t think I shall ever forget lying on a lounger by the pool at dusk and watching the hummingbirds performing acrobatics in the air above me. The list of restaurants provided was excellent; and Dino and Florida were unobtrusively helpful hosts.

What a find!

  • 5 of 5
The pictures of the property are beautiful, but to actually live it was divine. My husband and I spent 3 nights. It was like an oasis for just the two of us. The setting is lush and the house is pristine. The owners, Dino and Florida, could not have been more hospitable; they were gracious and so welcoming. We lounged, we read poolside and each night we enjoyed the spa by moonlight. We lunched at the Biltmore just a few miles away while overlooking the Pacific ocean. We strolled State Street and had dinner off-the-beaten path at Dargen's Irish pub and another night created a meal at the local Safeway to take back to the Cabana. Clearly, this isn't just a place to stay, but rather a place to experience. We seldom do hotels anymore. When properties like this one are available, why would we?
