Upper Village 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.

About Dino Ohanian

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!

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

"A Tropical Cabana Paradise" doesn't even begin to describe how beautiful, serene, romantic and soothing this hidden treasure is. Besides the extraordinary surroundings (inside and out), everything was clean and well-maintained, with every amenity imaginable....fireplace, music, candles, toiletries and live flowers in the (very) spacious and airy living room and bedroom. The owner (Dino) provided 5 star customer service and was accessible throughout our 4 day stay in case we needed anything.... but we didn't because he had so thoughtfully anticipated our desires ahead of time. Thank you for sharing your magical paradise with us Dino. P.S. The photographs we took during our visit are just as glorious and amazing as the photographs on line. This place is for real and we will definitely recommend to others.

Rejuvenating Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I prefer a quiet retreat with a pool and hot tub to ourselves. We had never visited the area and I had to force myself to leave the property to sight see. We were so relaxed. Content to lounge by the pool surrounded by the thoughtfully designed gardens. I can still hear the gentle sound of the water following over the hot tub into the pool and I want to go back. The positive remarks of other reviewers are accurate. Clean, spacious, beautifully decorated, convenient location, considerate hosts with helpful recommendations for local restaurants. What other reviewers have written we confirm as accurate. It's better in person than the pictures can show. It doesn't matter where you stand inside the Cabana or outside on the patio the view in every direction is lovely.The main house is close enough to the cabana that you can see it, but the owners were respectful of our privacy. Cabana Las Floras has a magical appearance when the landscape lights soften and glow in the evening. This property is clearly a labor of love and creativity. Thank you Dino and Florida for sharing it with us. We felt very privileged to be able to stay and will recommend to everyone we know.

Words cannot describe!

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I got married on Oct 28th and spent our mini-moon here. The pictures of the property are amazing but in person it takes your breath away. The spa is amazing!! The bedroom has french doors that open up to the view of the pool. We didn't want to leave! If you're looking for a beautiful, relaxing getaway I highly recommend this property. Don't forget to book the outdoor massage as well!

Beautiful Property!

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to start our two week vacation somewhere beautiful and relaxing, Cabana Las Floras was perfect. The cabana is set up with everything you will need. It is very pretty and relaxing, comfy bed and good linens. It is so quiet, the pool and spa are the perfect way to end each day. It is close to everything, driving was not a problem, but when you return home it is a big sigh to be staying in such a beautiful place. Dino and Florida are the perfect host, there when you want, otherwise you do not see or hear them. Thank you for this wonderful stay, we will be back!

Outstanding!!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived Dino greeted us with his welcoming personality. He gave us a detailed tour of the grounds and cabana. The cabana is all it shows and then some. We used the beautiful pool as the Temps soared during our stay. Thank you Dino for your recommendations, they as you said were wonderful.

More lovely than the photos

  • 4 of 5

We had a nice five night stay. The property is lovely, easy to get to, about ten mins out of Santa Barbara. Meeting the owner to get access was very easy. Everything was lovingly maintained and very clean. The bed and linens very nice and comfortable. The pool was a bit cool, and the hot tub took 1/2 hr to warm up however this was to be expected. The owners were very prompt in dealing with the hot water pilot light that went out. The only drawback was the gardeners who the owners had alerted us would be working. On two mornings they were digging six feet from the bed at 7:30 am. I would definitely stay again despite that.
