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.
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.
Lovely little house in the middle of the old town, very quiet with very attractive garden space. Very helpful owners. House was very well equipped and a delight to stay in. A very comfortable, clean house and we would be very happy to stay their again.
Wir wurden herzlich begrüßt und abgeholt wie vereinbart. Das Altstadthaus ist sehr gepflegt und wirklich alles vorhanden, was man so braucht. Von den Küchenutensilien über Waschpulver, Spülmaschinentabs, Bügeleisen...
Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und konnten auf der Terrasse frühstücken.
Das Haus liegt im alten Kern von Rhodos und so konnten wir die gesamte Altstadt und auch den Hafen und Badestrand zu Fuß erreichen. Frau Catharina erklärte uns alles sehr genau und so konnten wir uns sehr schnell orientieren.
Restaurants gibt es in der Nähe ausreichernd und alle bieten gute Küche an.
Oft hatten wir Besuch von Katzen, die wir gerne fütterten.
