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.

Hidden gem of a house

  • 5 of 5

I think this house wins the prize for best entrance ever, hands down. Entry into the Old Town is via San Francisco Gate, across medieval fortifications and through old city walls - just beautiful and everything within very easy walking distance. House itself has been lovingly restored and maintained in a very pretty walled garden with fresh orange and lemon trees and remnants of original garden layout and architecture. Particularly loved airy master bedroom which opens onto large private terrace with sun loungers and table and chairs - ate up there a lot and really enjoyed rather eclectic view across Old Town (satellite dishes to medieval church remains). Property well stocked with useful things on arrival and nearest mini and supermarkets very close. Peaceful, comfortable, clean and Rosa and Dora could not have been more helpful before, during and after. Almost don't want to post this as means more people will know about this lovely place, but given how much we enjoy a castle and a crenellation, would feel bad if deprived others equally inclined. Just wonderful!

Super schöner, erholsamer Urlaub!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren mit dem liebevoll eingerichteten Haus von Rosa und Dora sehr zufrieden.

Rosa hat uns, wie besprochen, pünktlich am Treffpunkt eingesammelt und uns zum Haus begleitet und uns alles Wichtige gezeigt.

Das Haus ist sehr liebevoll und gemütlich eingerichtet. Alle Etagen sind mit Klimaanlage ausgestattet.

Außerdem liegt das Haus sehr zentral in der Altstadt von Rhodos.

Alles ist fußläufig super zu erreichen.

Von dieser Stelle nochmals vielen Dank, das wir in diesem entzückenden Haus unseren Urlaub verbringen durften!

Schöner Urlaub in einem wunderbaren Haus

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten die Chance, für zwei Wochen im Oktober noch nach etwas Sommer auf Rhodos zu schnappen. Eine Woche davon verbrachten wir in diesem liebenswerten Haus in der Altstadt von Rhodos.

Buchung und Übergabe waren absolut problemlos. Die Vermieterinnen sind ausgesprochen freundlich, nett und zuvorkommend. Weil das Haus nicht direkt mit dem Auto angefahren werden kann, hatten wir einen Treffpunkt vor den mittelalterlichen Mauern der Stadt vereinbart. Parkplätze findet man direkt vor den Stadtmauern (das war tatsächlich unproblematisch). Allerdings waren wir auch in der Nach-Saison vor Ort - wie das zwischen Juni und August aussieht, wissen wir nicht ;-)

Pünktlich auf die Minute war die Vermieterin da und begleitete uns zum Haus (und trug dabei noch den Koffer unserer Tochter...). Ein kleines Begrüßungspaket mit Kaffee, Tee, Gebäck, Wein und Früchten stand in der Küche bereit.

Das Haus selber liegt in einer ruhigen Seitenstraße, die nicht von Tages-Touristen frequentiert wird - die Entfernung zur Stadtmauer beträgt etwas unter 100 Meter. Das Haus ist liebevoll über zwei Etagen eingerichtet, im Erdgeschoss und im Obergeschoss gibt es jeweils zwei kleine Schlafzimmer. Auf beiden Etagen außerdem ein Duschbad nebst WC. Die Küche ist komplett und ausreichend eingerichtet, die meiste Zeit sind wir aber Essen gegangen... Im Obergeschoss gibt es eine schöne Dachterrasse zum Sonnen, im Erdgeschoss einen wunderschön angelegten Garten, der Schatten spendet (aber leider auch Mücken anlockt, Spray nicht vergessen...).

Restaurants, Cafes und Bars sind nur wenige Meter entfernt. Die Sehenswürdigkeiten der Altstadt von Rhodos sind schnell per Fuß errreicht.

Alles in allem: Eine klare Empfehlung, wer in der Stadt und trotzdem etwas abseits vom Trubel sein will.

Ach ja: Im Garten schauen auch einmal Katzen vorbei. Do not feed them ;-).
