“Fantastic place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

This was our first trip to Skiathos and one of our best holidays to Greece due to the lovely family run Sunset. Set in a great location near to Koukounaries beach which we found too overcrowded in August but there are other quieter unspolit beaches within walking distance. We had a mezzanine apartment which the two kids loved, it is pretty basic but kept very clean. The pool area is the best part which is kept beautifully clean. The two Vasillis were really friendly and very welcoming and the homecooked food is amazing. Nothing is too much trouble and the evening meals were the best we had, the other restaurants around are very average in comparison. We will definalty be back to Skiathos one day and would not hesitate to stay at the Sunset again.

Just back from 2 weeks at Sunset. The apartments were very clean, tidy and nice and cool. The pool was kept really clean and the surrounding area was beautiful. Vasilis 1 and 2 were both very welcoming and friendly, Food was amazing! Kleftiko, Cheese Pie and Calamari and we were kept well topped up with Red Wine...The location is perfect as there are so many beaches near by. We will definitely return again and promise not to break any more toilets! ;0)

Thankyou so much Vasilis and family (Vasilis 'master chef', George, Nula & Anthony). You made our trip the best we have ever had yet! We love staying with you, and you know we will be back! You always make us feel at home, and nothing is any trouble.Thank you for cooking wonderful food, and for always making sure our little boy is catered for too! For those new to Sunset studios, they are perfectly located in near the beautiful Koukounaries forest, and just a short walk to the beach (which is very popular), or a 15 minute 'away from it all' walk through the forest to quieter, very picturesque beaches. All beaches have tavernas. We cannot say enough about the hospitality at Sunset studios, and how much fun we have every time.

Just back after popping my skiathos cherry; and what a fantastic holiday! On arrival at the Sunset, Vasilis greeted and escorted us to our room. The apartment had everything we needed for our fortnight stay and was extremely clean – a standard maintained by the excellent housekeeping team. The cleanliness extended to the pool and bar area, as well as the grounds.

The pool area is often very quiet and relaxing, with the small taverna bar and restaurant a joining – perfect for ducking out of the sun with a cheeky Mythos! By night, the restaurant offers a great balanced menu of traditional Greek and some more familiar dishes too. The cooking is to a very high standard with by far the best kleftiko on the island, and is the only place we returned to. Prices in the restaurant are competitive with other Koukounaries establishments, and the ingredients couldn’t be fresher with the well tended, and well planted garden.

The location of the Sunset couldn’t be better. Set back slightly from the quiet road, it is 100m or less to the local supermarket (which is open till midnight), 200m to the bus stop and a short walk to other tavernas and restaurants. Koukounaries is the nearest beach, just a five minute walk; however Mandraki and Elias are much more picturesque and a fantastic 20min walk along a forest.

But all the above is nothing compared to the staff. Vasilias (the owner) was so welcoming and accommodating, he could never do enough for you and takes real pride in the Sunset. Vasilis the chef is a fantastic bloke and very talented in the kitchen. Very genuinely friendly, we shared many stories, beers and laughs. The whole atmosphere was like being invited into a family home.

Fantastic holiday and will be returning! Yasoo Vasilis!

It was our third trip to the Island of Skiathos. Each time we have stayed at the Sunset Apartments. We love it so much we take two flights to get there.... Sunset apartments are amazing, we were made feel so welcome. It is a family run resort with a lovely homely feel. Vasilis, George and Vasilis ' The Master Chef ' were so helpful and welcoming. The food was divine and any night we ate in Koukounaries we ate at the Sunset. The location was excellent, so convenient for the beautiful beeches, supermarkets and on the bus route for the lovely town of Skiathos!!! Our children love it also, we will return. It holds some special memories and it has a special place in our hearts!!! Bernadette & Family from Ireland....

Room Tip: Two bed apartment would be ideal!!!

This was our first time at Sunset and I'm sure it won't be our last! We received such a friendly welcome from the two Vasilis and this continued throughout our stay. We stayed in a studio apartment and everything we needed for a two week stay was provided. The apartments, pool and bar area were kept immaculately clean and bedding and towels were changed frequently.

The location of these apartments is great with bars, restaurants, supermarket and beaches nearby. There is also a frequent bus service on the road outside the Sunset which goes into Skiathos Town.

The food at the Sunset was the best we had on the island and the service was brilliant. This was the only place on the island where we ate more than once, we ate here 5 or 6 times during our stay and the food was amazing each time. Vegetables are grown in the beautiful and well kept gardens of the apartments.

We spoke to so many people who return to the Sunset Apartments year after year and I can definitely see why. We had such a great time here, the island is beautiful and our stay at Sunset was perfect. We will hopefully be returning soon!

This was our 2nd stay with Sunset for 2 weeks in July 2013. We liked it so much last year had to come back. Studios very clean and generous in size. Vasilis and all staff friendly, who are helpful make you feel very welcome, nothing is too much trouble for them. Food in restaurant is excellent, Mythos is cold, barbeque evey Friday by the pool. Clean pool ,decent size and comfy sunbeds.Well maintained complex, home grown veggies for the restaurant. Family run studios so they care your holiday is as relaxing as possible. Location of studios is excellent ,easy walk to Koukounanries beach, golden sparkles in the sand clear beach no steep hills .Other beaches easy to get to by regular bus service. ideal if you want peace and quiet. Miss it already, will be back soon.
