We arrived late in the evening after dark and so the true splendour of Villa Sunny's situation was not revealed till the next day. This beautiful home sits 3/4 of the way up the mountain and overlooks the sea and the valley below. The area is full of nature with pines and olive trees all around.
Villa Sunny itself sits in a very generous gardens that has many places to sit and relax or dine outside or barbecue on the supplied Weber. The owners have many pots of herbs around and some lovely vegetables in a patch which they offer for the guests' use. We were able to cook many delicious meals in the spacious kitchen which we then enjoyed on the balcony overlooking the sea.
For us, this trip was about relaxation and enjoying the special atmosphere of Skiathos but we were so warmly welcomed by Kostas and his wife Sofia that we hope that we have created an unexpected new friendship. They are both knowledgeable of all the island and its many beaches and restaurants and very willing to answer any questions. Although they do not live on site, they were solitious when a severe storm came through, calling to make sure we had enough provisions. They made us feel so very welcome and relaxed.
We would love to visit Villa Sunny another time, even despite its hair raising drive up the narrow (but paved) road with its many curves and steep inclines. We will just make sure and book a more powerful car or 4 wheel drive next time! The beds were very comfortable - firm - not too soft and all the bedrooms overlooked the sea and valley and had a terrace for enjoying the view.
All in all, this is one of the best holidays we have taken. For those times when staying in, their is fast wifi and a generous sized flat screen tv that the owners have installed. We were able to use our own Netflix account without any problems at all.
We had a wonderful, worry-free time during our stay in Starlight Villas. You won't find a better deal anywhere. Our rental included transfer from the airport, use of a vehicle, and even a welcome package that included an incredibly good homemade tiropita. (Which was handy-- my cousin had been talking about tiropita all morning before we got there!) There are a lot of small touches that make this a great place to stay, such as a cooler and ice packs in the kitchen.
Everyone was very helpful and very welcoming. From the time I first looked into staying until the time we left, there was always someone checking in to make sure we had everything we needed. Our stay here was a highlight of our vacation.
Many thanks to all of you for everything you did!
