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.

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!

An Oasis in Santa Barbara

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing place to stay for a romantic getaway. There is so much to do in Santa Barbara and the "Cabana Las Floras" is an oasis in the middle of it all. The spacious Cabana is situated in the middle of a large secluded garden property with a tea house, pool, spa and large patio. The property is in a sleepy neighborhood in Montecito, only minutes from downtown SB, the beach, hiking, cycling, restaurants and wineries. Our hosts were very gracious, giving us space to enjoy our alone time but available to help us in any way possible. Dino and his wife keep up to date on the best places to go so be sure and ask for suggestions.

The property was so enjoyable that we wanted to spend our days soaking up the peaceful atmosphere and beauty of the 1 1/2 acres of gardens and trees. We started each day with tea and coffee in the secluded Tea House surrounded by the soothing sounds of the natural rock waterfall. At the end of each day we would come “home” to relax with a glass of wine in the Tea House or one of many tranquil garden settings. The hosts have put years of hard work and love into this property to make it the best experience possible for their guests. It was an experience we will never forget and we hope to return soon to add to those fond memories.

The pictures don't do it justice. The rooms are large, comfortable and high quality!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a romantic getaway and the pictures and words just don't do justice to how beautiful and truly romantic a place this is. If romance is on your agenda than this is the place to go as Dino and Florita have created a magical place for couples to come together. Where else can you have a beautiful one bedroom cabana with your own pool and hot tub and gazebo and garden to lose yourself in love with your partner. They have put so many special touches to the place including the beautiful and bountiful orchids in the cabana and around the cabana - the pool is high end and heated! A gazebo imported from Asia and a garden that anyone that has been to the tropics of Asia will understand how special this is. And don't forget to ask Dino about commissioning a special photo with your special someone - he is an amazing photographer and worth taking that opportunity- it's so special and not likely to find such a beautiful place for a photo - Santa Barbara! Thank you Dino and Florita - it was a weekend to remember! We'll be back next year!

Beautiful, tropical, Garden of Eden

  • 5 of 5

What a grand place to be… A peaceful, quiet gem of a place. With over 2 acres of sprawling gardens, plants and rock pathways, this place took our breath away. We enjoyed laying by the pool every afternoon and listening to the waterfall, soaking up the sun, and breathing in thefragrance of the tropical flowers that surrounded us. The cabana that we stayed in was very nice and clean. The bed was very comfortable, and the kitchen was set up to make coffee every morning and to even prepared meals there. We enjoyed a massage our first day there, which is something you can opt to do if you wish. The host was very gracious, welcoming and hospitable . We would enjoy going back there again, for it more than exceeded our expectations for an exotic get away. It was beautiful and peaceful in every way possible. We enjoyed our stay there immensely!!
