About Dora Zakopoulou
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.

A little gem
A little oasis of piece in the bustle of the the old town. Booking was easy and the communication with Rosa and Dora was first rate. Any query we had was dealt with promptly and professionally. A word of warning, bring good shoes, the cobbled streets can take their toll.
Lovely place, love to come again !
Being a frequent visitor to Rhodes for the last 30+ years, this house was a nice experience ! Located just a short walk from the St Francicus gate we were met by Rosa who explained everything about the property. The house and garden are really nice ! So if you want to stay in the Rhodes old town, this is a good place to stay. And to Rosa and Dora... Keep up the good work !
the accommodation was very appropriate and the equipment of all kinds was exceptional
good stay with a reservation which has nothing to do wth the property but with the local conditions: during the period november - april everything in the medieval town is closed, shops, restaurants etc. which renders the stay fairly disappointing, the same applies to many sites all over the island, a very serious damper on the attractivity of the destination.
Hidden gem of a house
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!
Our hostess was extremely helpful and we enjoyed our visit.
I can rekommend this house to everybody who wants to live in the middle of old town and have a Good night sleep. There is everything in the house and it is middle of everything. Garden is amazing.
Thank you for your kind words! You are always welcome back to our home!
The emotion of living in this paradise within the old city can not be described but only lived
We are a big family: 2 adults and 3 children who cried when we had to leave the house and its beautiful secret garden! We stayed for 2 weeks and everything was perfect. The house is cared for in detail and clean, equipped with everything you need and the garden is a corner of paradise. Nestled in bougainvilleas and citrus fruits, we enjoyed dinners under the pergola and the company of cats, characteristic of this city and that our children loved right away, was the perfect touch for us we love animals. The experience of living within the old city is unique. Rhodes old town has something magic and all the island is surrounded by dream beaches. For those who rent a car the location of the house is optimal because a free parking is available just outside the walls, a few steps from the house.
We were greeted by Rosa, adorable and friendly, with a snack of well-arrived. She helped us with our luggages and we kept in touch for any need during our staying (advice on beaches, restaurants, places to visit). She's a wonderful woman!
This place has entered in our heart and surely we will return, even for a weekend.
Thank you very much to Rosa, her mother and to their beautiful house!
