Overview

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.

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!

So beautiful and peacefull

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at Cabana Las Floras. Dino and his wife Florida were very accommodating, even scheduling a last minute on-site massage which was excellent! The property is VERY secluded and although it is the pool house, it feels very separated from the main house. The amenities are comfortable although the guest bed leaves a bit to be desired, the bed in the main room was very cozy and tasteful. We were in town for a wedding and Cabana Las Floras was our escape after hectic family time. We will definitely be back!

Best way to Santa Barbara!

  • 5 of 5

Cabana Las Floras was incredible. It was EXACTLY what we were looking for. I can't imagine us staying any other place in the future. You are close to everything (Santa Barbara, Montecito, Summerland, beaches, mountains, golf, and your own private paradise.) If you have any concerns about spending time to visit the Santa Barbara area at this incredible oasis let me put your mind at ease right now. My only request: don't book this property the same time we plan to on our next visit!

Heaven on Earth!

Great location in upper Montecito. Museum like grounds that will transport you! Very clean and comfortable cabana, tastefully decorated with all the amenities. Wonderful hosts. We did not want to leave and will definitely return.

Best stay we have ever had

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Cabana was absolutely wonderful. We have stayed at other places and none can compare. The beauty of the gardens, the comfort and very well appointed Cabana and the pool/Hot-tub just made the entire week we were there fabulous. We will be returning on a regular basis since we plan to visit the area regularly. Dina and Florida were superb hosts - helpful, fun to talk to and really great people, so warm and inviting!

Wonderful experience all around!

  • 5 of 5

As the mass amount of reviews will confirm, this place is as good as it gets! The property is an amazing custom oasis that is almost impossible to explain without seeing it for yourself. Every inch of the place was thought out and has a purpose. Dino was amazingly easy to get a hold of and as gracious a host as anyone I've ever met. Can't speak highly enough of the entire experience. Close enough to anything you would want to do in the area but once you are immersed in the properties beauty you really don't want to leave. Thank you so much for having us and making this an experience we'll never forget!!!!

Amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed three nights at this amazing cabana and had the most wonderful time. The cabana was spotless and beautifully decorated and supplied with everything we needed to make our stay comfortable and relaxing. The pool and surroundings are absolutely beautiful and we felt like we were in the Garden of Eden. Dino and Florida were gracious hosts and made sure that we were comfortable. They certainly are generous to share their lovely property with others.

Thanks to them for providing us with a relaxing time as we visited our granddaughter at Westmont College. We surely hope to return some day!
