What can I say about Thea's and Ikaria? It was a trip of a lifetime that I'd like to return to as soon as possible. I've been to many Greek islands over the years and Ikaria holds a special place in my heart. In some ways, it is because if the amazing vistas of the blue sea as you round each bend. No matter how amazing a place is, though, I always need a "home" to come "home" to and Thea's Inn did the trick! It was just perfect for my small family (wife and 4 Y/O son) and my inlaws (wife's parents) from Chicago. Thea took care of us so well, we felt like family. Her breakfasts were so satisfying we didn't need to really eat until dinner. She clearly cares about what she does and does it with such generosity and spirit! Need more coffee? No problem. Need to use the phone to make a call? No problem. Need directions to this place? No problem. Thea thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality. It was a true gift to meet you and we hope to visit again some day to enjoy your kindness, the beauty of your side of Ikaria, hike around the beautiful topography, enjoy more of the beaches (but Nas Beach is TOPS!) (for those who haven't visited, it is a short walk down from Thea's), and enjoy your home cooking.
