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!

We loved this place!

  • 5 of 5

This was the ultimate hideaway for our 12 day stay in the Santa Barbara area. The gardens are a botanical oasis and the location was ideal. We were able to bike directly from the property and the drive into Santa Barbara was a snap. We were provided with hiking suggestions, dining suggestions and additional local information that made our stay feel like we were locals. The whirlpool was a welcome treat at the conclusion of our day. We hope to return. Dino was a gracious host!

The night-time soak in the spa, under the starry skies and thick foliage was wonderful.

An oasis second to none other,

  • 5 of 5

From beginning to end, my wife and I were in another world . We were experiencing Santa Barbara like never before. With the luxury and quaintness of the elegant tropical cabana we were in heaven. Hard pressed to leave the property to go anywhere,

Any issues, Management was instantly there to handle it. Homerun. We're coming back!

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this place is charming. From the moment you are greeted by Dino at the front gate, to his attentiveness to your comfort, your stay here will be a magical experience. The beautiful grounds are lovingly cared for by Dino and his staff. It is so peaceful and serene. The cottage is cozy and comfortable as well as being beautifully decorated with Dino's personal touches. We especially enjoyed the roaring fireplace in the living room as the weather in January can be a little cool and damp. The bed in the master bedroom as well as the daybed in the living room are very comfortable. My only disappointment was that there is not a full kitchen as I enjoy cooking (yes, even on vacation!). There is a microwave and toaster oven inside and a grill with a burner outside which would suffice in warmer months but it was a little too cool and damp for me to cook outside. We did take advantage of the masseuse that came to the property to give us massages (for a fee of course). She was wonderful and only added to the overall experience there. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a quiet, serene get away. Thanks Dino for sharing your little piece of paradise with us.

Better than pictured and outstanding communication and hospitality by owners

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 3 nights. Absolute privacy with easy access to the gardens. Gas fireplace and ample lounging space in the living room. Dino and his wife Florida have lists of great local eats and even offered to accommodate us for dinner. She made a great spread and was a warm hostess. We wanted something special for this trip and we got it! Thanks
