Dennis Houses & Tavern - Our special accommodation of the week



Dennis Houses & Tavern 

Our special accommodation of the week

Every week ZanteHotels4u proudly presents you a special accommodation with owners that deserve a closer look. Not because they have big hotels and welcome many guests, but because we as a team love their hospitality and how they treat their guests. This week in the spotlight: Dennis Houses & Tavern in Tsilivi.

The most important thing that is special about Dennis Houses is the hospitality of the owners; Dennis and Maria.
They want to make sure that their guests spend amazing holidays. In their opinion this is not by offering super deluxe rooms with jacuzzi and champagne, but by offering simple but comfortable rooms and Greek wine

They welcome you with a package of Greek products, consisting of softdrinks, water, bread, eggs, ham & cheese, marmalade, coffee, tea and sugar. They think it’s important to provide this so that their guests have a comfortable arrival in a country that is not their own. 


It's logic that guests are tired after a trip to Zakynthos. We give them a welcome package so that they can have their first drinks and meal in order to have a good start of the holidays. After this, they are ready to explore Zakynthos!

The Dennis Houses consist of studios for 2 or 3 guests and 2 houses, ideal for families. The houses and studios are located opposite of Dennis pride; his traditionally Greek Tavern



Dennis Tavern

Here he serves breakfast from 8 to 10 in the morning, of course in Greek style.
If you would like to try his breakfast, you can expect the following:
Bread, butter, marmalade, fried eggs with bacon and sausages, yoghurt, tomatoes and olives and every day Dennis and his wife will treat you something extra: tyropita (=cheese pie), spanakopita (=spinach pie) or bougatsa (=cream pie) They want to make sure that you will taste the real Greece and that you won’t be hungry soon!

From 13:00 to midnight, the tavern is open for lunch or dinner (or both.…) Dennis serves Zakynthian dishes with meat or fish on the grill. He will make sure that this will be an experience, so he will let you eat “the traditional way” as he explains in the following quote:

“Lamb chops shouldn’t be eaten with a knife and fork. I don’t give my guests a knife and fork, but show them how we eat it here in Greece: by hand. After they are satisfied with their meal, I will bring them a bowl with water so that they can wash their hands. My guests appreciate that I want to make them feel like a local. It is important to me that I show my guests that they are in Greece, and not in any other country.”

Dennis and his wife describe themselves as simple but good and very hospitable people. It makes them happy when they see that their guests are having a good time choosing the real Greek hospitality and traditions, rather than the big all-inclusive hotels.
Dennis also produces homemade olive oil, olives and wine. For the guests that would like to take these products home as memories of their amazing stay at Dennis Houses, there is good news: These homemade products are for sale.

For the people that are interested after reading about these hospitable persons, I will give some information about the studios and houses.

There are 2 renovated studios for 2-3 guests that have all the facilities you need for a comfortable stay. They consist of a double bed and a single bed, and if you have the wish to have 3 single beds, Dennis will grant it! There is a kitchen with all the facilities to cook your meals (and if you’re not in the mood to cook, you just cross the street!) and a private bathroom. Of course there is air-conditioning to cool down after a day in the Greek sun

Dennis also has 2 houses named after his children; Spyros and Spyridoula.

* Spyridoula can accommodate up to 7 guests in 3 different bedrooms. It has a fully equipped kitchen to practice your cooking skills with the local products, a bathroom and a balcony all around the house, so that you can find shade at every moment of the day. For your comfort, everything is located on one floor.
* Spyros can accommodate up to 6 guests in 3 bedrooms. This house is ideal for families, since 2 bedrooms have bunk beds. Downstairs there are a spacious kitchen and living room and a separate toilet with washing machine, so that you don’t need to walk upstairs when you have just installed yourself on the couch. The three bedrooms are upstairs. The master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom, while the other two bedrooms share a bathroom. 


ZanteHotels4u loves the philosophy of Dennis and Maria. Being hospitable and making sure that guests have a good time is something everyone should strive for.
