About The Owner

Hi my name is Dora, I am Greek and also the owner of these two lovely “Houses in Secrete Garden”. I feel fortunate to live in a place like Medieval Rhodes town, where simply walking out the door can have the experience of the past but with a contemporary way. I love to travel and meet people.

Great house, great situation - the perfect spot for exploring the old town of Rhodes

  • 5 of 5

This is a terrific place - perfectly situated inside the old, walled city (in the south-west corner) with a wonderful, secluded courtyard garden which is great for breakfast and drinks/dinner al fresco. We had a wonderful week and would recommend it wholeheartedly

A beautiful little haven

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay in Dora and Rosa's lovely little cottage with its beautiful hidden garden. The cottage is bright and cheerful and is equipped well for a holiday. Being inside the old walled town it is within walking distance of all the historic and tourist attractions, and the shops and tavernas. Although, with the maze of alleys in Rhodes it's still possible to get temporarily lost!

Rosa went out of her way to make us welcome and feel at home and we would recommend this cottage to couples or small groups. Thank you Dora and Rosa for giving us such a lovely base to explore Rhodes.

Beautiful apt.

  • 5 of 5

Such a wonderfully appointed and convenient place to stay right in the heart of the Old medieval town. Dora and Rosa were wonderful hostesses and provided extra info. on beaches, restaurants and transportation to us. The garden was a wonderful place to take meals and hang out after a long day out in Rhodes. We will recommend it to our friends. Thank you.

very nice house in Rhodos old Town

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the Blue house with a friend and it was just absolutely perfect with the two bedrooms and the two small bathrooms. We loved the garden (shadow) and the terrace on the first floor, where you could sit in the sun and lie on the sunbeds. On our arrival, which was late, approx. 23.00, we were met by Rosa, the daughter of Mrs. Zakopoulos, (we came by taxi) at the San Francisco Gate, and she brought as to the hjouse as taxi's are not allowed in the Old Town.

We very much appriciated that she had put some food in the fridge for our breakfast, very thoughtful, and also a bottle of wine and some nuts. In the kitchen was also several kinds of tea, ground coffee and instant coffee, Sugar and salt. I rented many houses in the past, but never encountered such a thoughtful gesture. The part of the Old Town where we stayed was very quiet. There was a big supermarket about 10 minutes walk from our house and also there was a busstop nearby where we could catch a bus to several beaches and other destinations.

We had a wonderful stay and because it was so nice to sit in the garden, we even ate every night outside in the garden instead of eating in a restaurant, of which there were also plenty around. The kitchen was very well equipped (perhaps a few more small cooking pans?) There was plenty to see in the Old Town and very interesting to walk around through these narrow cobbled Streets. Shoes with thick soles are really necessary to walk around there, otherwise you feel every pebble through you soles. The museum in the Grand Masters Palace was very interesting and the items were very well displayed. An absolute must. Our visit to Lindos with the local bus which took about one hour and a half

(from the Busstation) was a bit disappointing, because it was very crowded with tourists and every house was either a restaurant or a souvenirshop. But there were a few parts that were not crowded and looked very nice.

Una casa accogliente nella città medioevale

  • 4 of 5

Abbiamo soggiornato una settimana due adulti e due ragazzi.

La casa è piccola (da considerare che è una cittadina medioevale) ma accogliente , stanze con colori diversi che creano un ambiente piacevole. Ha tutto quello che serve per rilassarsi e godere la vacanza.

E' appena dentro le mura a pochi passi dal centro storico di Rodi ma tranquilla con un giardinetto dove è piacevole cenare .

Dora è la proprietaria, premurosa e disponibile per ogni necessità o informazione.

Ottimo soggiorno.
