Montecito estate description

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.

                                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.

                                I was looking for a serene place away from all the busyness and congestion of LA and this was the perfect spot for a few days of tranquility, quiet and relaxation. We love Montecito and finding this private oasis was the perfect solution to feeling at home and avoiding the typical hotel feeling. The grounds are beautifully landscaped, the cabana is clean and spacious and supplied with almost every basic necessity. We were very pleasantly surprised it exceeded our expectations and found the price very reasonable for all the amenities you get. The owners were very hospitable and answered all of our questions in a timely manner and were always available. I recommend this location if you are looking to avoid the hotel atmosphere, would like to feel like you in your own little private escape but still be close to the main town of Montecito and a close drive from Santa Barbara.

                                Im really not sure what else i can add to the previous glowing reviews. Having stayed in many vacation homes this is far and away the best. They have not spared any expense...... its peaceful, relaxing, comfortable and we have no hesitation in recommending this property. In fact we both commented that it looks better in person than in the photo's and thats saying something as you can see from the photos. Simply when we come back to the Santa Barbara area we will stay here.

                                The listing as a tropical cabana paradise is exactly what my wife and I experienced. The property was indeed well maintained. The picture of the pool and spa just portrays a brief glance of the true beauty of the property. The gardens include a thoughtfully landscaped adventure into your inner self. From the zen pagoda to the immense varieties of plant life and fauna, it renders a very calming result. The owners provided both a friendly and private environment. A truly authentic experience, especially compared to a hotel stay. The cabana is clean and is truly a home away from home. We would recommend this property to family, friends, and anyone who is looking for a quiet time away from the demands of day to day life. We enjoyed shopping in Downtown Santa Barbara and Ventura. Their are a large variety of shops available. We really enjoyed the cuisine and service at Andersen's Restaurant in downtown Santa Barbara. We enjoyed our time and are looking forward to a stay there next year. Thank you Dino and Florida for the wonderful stay at your estate and we can't wait to open the bottle of wine with you on the next trip! Marla and Kevin, Clovis, CA

                                We loved staying at Cabana Las Floras ! My wife and I found this to be one of the most peaceful places we have ever stayed in our 10 years of getting away after retirement. The house was perfect for the two of us, the grounds were like staying in a botanic garden, we used the hot tub every day with joy, and Dino and Florida were helpful anytime we needed any help. We will be back.

                                We found a piece of paradise while visiting Montecito. This beautifully designed pool house was so welcoming and gorgeously decorated. The bed was sumptuous making it hard to get up and out! We needed for nothing as it was so well-equipped. It offered a real zen feeling set amongst the lush landscape offering serene tranquility. Sun loungers available or sacred shaded sitting areas strategically placed on the property..and a river runs through it! Magnificent! The hosts, Dino and Florida, are charming, talented, and living in the main home on the estate. Totally invisible unless you need assistance or special services. I highly recommend this perfect getaway.

                                This place is by far one of the nicest places we have stayed at. The grounds are immaculately done and are like a slice of heaven in Montecito. The Cabana is well kept and has everything you need to make your stay enjoyable. The place is clean and is tastefully decorated and furnished. The owners are warm and friendly and provided everything we needed, including great tips to local restaurants. The experience made our one year anniversary special. We will be back next year for our anniversary!!!

                                My husband and were guests of Florida and Dino for a week. We arrived on a late flight but Florida was available to greet us and make us feel at home immediately. We settled in to a beautiful rhythm of the gardens, waterfall and tranquility. We enjoyed the cozy cabana and the comfortable bedroom accommodations. We also enjoyed several fires in the fireplace which only added to the warmth of the home. We would recommend this to couples that are seeking a quiet secluded respite. Thank you Dino & Florida

                                Our stay at this secluded oasis was just perfect. The property is filled with beautifully landscaped trees, winding stone paths, and a variety of flowers, just waiting for you to discover them. The private hammock was the perfect place to relax, looking through the oak trees to the blue skies above. We spent tons of time in the outdoor hot tub, just enjoying the views. Everything inside our spacious two room suite was equally cozy and beautifully appointed. We will definitely be back to this little slice of paradise.

                                Thank you Florida and Dino for a memorable romantic getaway! Your hospitality was above and beyond. The pictures on your website brought us to you. The reality of your serene oasis far surpassed what we were expecting, and that is what will bring us back. Thank you for making our experience so special!
