I just returned from a girls one night getaway from it all, and had a very relaxing time at the beautiful Casa De Flores.The grounds are beautiful the cottage heavenly and the sounds of the waterfall so relaxing. We were so close to home but felt like we were in a tropical paradise.Our Host's Dino and Florida were the best part. We hardly saw them but when we asked where we could get something to munch on while we watched movies, a tray appeared 1/2 hour later which was so unexpected. It had cheese and apples and nuts, and was the perfect added bonus to our cozy cottage, movie and vino. Thank you Dino and Florida that was certainly unexpected but very appreciated. I cannot wait to return with my Husband in the near future !!!

We had a fantastic time at the Casa de Flores. We felt very welcomed and enjoyed the cosy and beautifully decorated cottage as well as the gorgeous garden. We would definitely come here again and will recommend to our friends.

My husband and I had the wonderful pleasure of celebrating our 10 year anniversary at Casa De Flores. Dino checked in with us several times to see if there was anything he could do to make our stay even more enjoyable. The entire weekend was perfect. If you are visiting the Santa Barbara area you should definitely consider Casa De Flores. Tamara & Miles Connell

What a simply lovely place to stay! You could really not ask for anything better: a luxurious, relaxing, rejuvenating, home away from home! My husband and I just had the most wonderful time here, and we truly feel that we have made two new friends in Dino and Florida. What wonderfully warm, kind, generous and down to earth people. We can't wait to come back. Thank you Dino and Florida! Michelle and Tom

My wife and I spent five nights in this paradise. What a wonderful treat. Cabana was beautiful, very quiet, comfortable. The pool, spa, and garden are wonderful. Everything promised on the site was accurate. Dino and Florida were great, they are excellent resources for ideas for activities and their referrals for meals were excellent. They are also great fun and very interesting to talk with. We look forward to seeing them again next year.

Oh Casa De Flores, I wish we were there right now! That will be the difficult part of your visit to this slice of heaven -- you will have to leave! We had the best vacation of our LIVES! The Casa is so comfortable - great bed, great sheets, comfy couch, LOVELY flowers, candles, and more. The gardens are lovely everywhere I looked I kept seeing different flowers and planets. A tropical paradise, which truly felt like another world. The lagoon pool/hot tub deserves its own paragraph! Salt water, deep pool (you can dive). My husband and I are water babies - and spent so much time playing in the pool and soaking in the tub. Heaven, absolute heaven! Dino and Florida are consummate hosts. Extremely gracious, checking in to see if we needed anything but never overbearing. Enjoy yourself, and please give Dino and Florida a big hug from us.

Absolutely fabulous. It really is as good as the pictures lead you to believe. The cabana is comfortable, roomy and beautifully decorated. Dino and Florida are capable concierges, welcoming hosts and fascinating folks to chat with over a Mocha on the patio, but are by no means intrusive. During our stay my wife and I hiked all over, went to the wine country, had lunch at Ojai, went sailing, spent a day at the beach in Malibu and numerous afternoons on the beaches of Santa Barbara and Montecito. After wearing ourselves out we often relaxed in the spa and pool admiring the garden in the afternoon or gazing at the stars at night. The one regret that I have about our stay is that we did not manage to witness “Dancing Dino” with the other hoopers. Thanks Dino and Florida.

"Tropical Cabana Paradise" truly was a little piece of paradise tucked into the hills of Montecito. Dino and Florida are exceptional hosts, warm and attentive to every detail around the enchanting property and the very comfortable and roomy cabana. Little surprises throughout the cabana were much appreciated: chocolates, flowers, drinks in the fridge. They will point you the right way to find the perfect beach for your mood-of-the-day, or where to dine out. We really enjoyed the pool and late-nights in the jacuzzi, it felt so far away from the madness... And, like others before us, we went down to the beach to "partake" in some hula hoop-ing. Something we evidently need a lot more practice at! This property ranks amongst our top favorite places to stay and we hope to return. Danielle and Ed, Ottawa (Canada)

Case de Flores exceeded our expectations for our recent stay in the Santa Barbara area. Located in quiet, elegant Montecito, our accommodations were spacious, beautifully decorated down to the last detail, and very private. A very comfortable bed, luxurious linens and a fully stocked mini-kitchen also made our stay far better than any hotel. We enjoyed the tranquil pool with its gurgling waterfall and private hot tub (which heated up in a mere 20 minutes). The tranquil garden with its many nooks and crannies to relax, was magnificent. You can tell Dino and Florida take great pride in their property and providing their guests with the utmost in comfort. They were very friendly and helpful, yet did not intrude on our stay one bit. We enjoyed meeting up with them at East Beach to hula hoop, and wish we could have stayed longer to play some ping pong and bocce with them! Upon our eventual return to the area, there is nowhere else we'd rather stay... thanks Dino and Florida!

When booking one never knows for sure until arrival if the place is as good as it looks. The cabana and surroundings exceeded our expectations. The cabana is pure quality...from the orchids in each of the rooms to the ___count sheets where I slept like a baby. What we needed and received was time for R&R. Dino and Florida were the perfect hosts giving us the right balance of alone-time and conversation time with them. I recommend this to anyone who wants to get away from it all and still be pampered.

we had such an amazing week. this trip to santa barbara was dreamy. our hostess and host treated us as if we were old friends. we were given local tips for our trip that made everyday a blast. we were shown complete respect for our privacy. we had a hard time going to the beach or to the mountains because this vacation spot was so amazing. my husband thought that was a very important comment for to lehis guestbook. me personally, i do not even know where to begin. i am in love with this vacation home. we will be returning again and again. the perfect 5STAR + a couple stars. the pool and spa were AWESOME! we loved every second of our vacation. our only complaint is it ended too quickly!!!!!

Wow, what a destination! The home, pool. spa, garden, stars are all fantastic- What else can I say. Santa Barbara is fantastic, but to be honest, it is tough to leave this home. It lacks nothing when it comes to romance and tranquility. Dino and Florida are great hosts both at the casa de flores, and at the beach. Hula-hooping was a blast! We will certainly come back and send our friends for a little taste of heaven on earth.

Thank you so much to Dino and Florida for such a wonderful getaway weekend. The house couldn't have been more perfect. Just the right balance of privacy and romance with the hospitable nature of our endearing hosts. We especially appreciated the attention to detail inside the house and in the super private gardens surrounding the amazing pool and hot tub. We hope to visit again soon!

My husband and I chose this property to celebrate our 2nd anniversary last weekend - staying here truly made our celebration special. Dino and his wife were warm, friendly and accommodating - they answered all our questions and gave us great recommendations for things to do in the area. The property itself is second-to-none - if the cozy guest house with the comfortable bed, flat panel TV, claw-foot bathtub and fireplace aren't enough for you, then just take a step outside into the lush, fragrant garden. Plants and flowers abound and curl attractively around the swimming pool and hot tub - take a dip at night to get the full effect of the sky full of stars. We had a wonderful time and are happy to highly recommend this property and the owners.

Casa de Flores was so beautiful. We enjoyed the garden, the jacuzzi under the stars and all the extra thoughtful touches from the owners. The owners were warm and so welcoming we felt more like friends than guests. We can't wait to go back and enjoy another relaxing getaway.

Beautiful, tranquil, quiet, private, romantic getaway. Easily equal to a 5 star hotel. The owners treat you like royalty and will interact with you as little or as much as you want. Wonderfulextra touches throughout the house as well as the service. Couldn't ask for a better place.

The cabana was truly a little piece of paradise... from the thoughtfully furnished home, to the beautiful garden and pool to the owners who were very friendly yet non obtrusive. We woke up every morning to the chirping of birds, heavenly smell of star jasmine, and warm croissants on the breakfast tray which was included. Loved the whole experience. definately going back again!

An incredibly beautiful landscape awaits you, coupled with a beautiful, immaculately maintained guest house, tastefully decorated and abound with gorgeous orchids. Peaceful and quiet, situated close to both Montecito Village, Summerland and Santa Barbara, and about 25 mins from wine country. Dino and Florida are wonderful hosts and go out of their way to make sure your stay is an experience to remember. It truly was. (and Gigi, the cutest little Chihuahua, is an added plus)
