Sunset Dreams is on the western portion of the north coast (near Nas). It is a bit of a remote location - Nas is a small town and Sunset Dreams is just outside of town. It is a pleasant walk into Nas, dark at night, but with beautiful stars. Nas may not have all the amenities, but it has some really good restaurants including two with spectacular views over the ruins of an ancient temple and the beach. The obvious advantage of this stretch of coast is the views of the sunset (thus the name). We found enough to do and eat within a half hour drive to gain a good kilo in less than a week. The vegetables fresh from the garden were a real treat.
The studios are both very comfortable and very quiet (we slept in more than we intended). They are well appointed and have beautiful stone work. The place is quite new (there are a few details -- like the landscaping--that are works in progress). The proprietors are very welcoming and helpful. Valentino, the cat is utterly adorable! The swimming area is rocky -- with protected pools for entry and windy days. On calm days you can swim out into the open sea with interesting rocks, crabs, anemones, and fish. On windy days you can stay in the pools that fill with bubbles. Be sure to bring water shoes and snorkels. We definitely plan to go back.
What isn't to be said about the amazing rentals at Sunset Dreams. I have traveled all around Greece and have yet to find such a perfect balance of hospitable staff, scenic location, and high end accomodations all for an excellent price.
The rooms all have great high speed internet and plenty of hot water, air conditioning, and comfort items. Open your door every morning to the sound of waves crashing and an unobstructed view of the Mediterranean.
Walk to restaurants and night life at Nas or take a short drive to most destinations on the island. The owner will be more than happy to tell you about his favorite spots for different types of Greek cuisine on the island. The souvlaki is a must try!
My only regret about my stay at Sunset Dreams was leaving. Excited to return and see all the changes, hang out with my new friends from the island, and relax at one of the most peaceful settings I've ever witnessed.
All rooms have waterfront views! Spacious and well-equipped studios with a private rocky beach on the property. The hosts are also friendly and fluent in English. You can also easily walk to Nas to swim or for lunch/dinner or even afternoon yoga! The vegetables we picked from the garden were delicious. And of course, ours days ended with a uniquely beautiful sunset.
Terrific rooms to let. Excellent sea view (especially at sunset). Need to correct a bit the bathrooms regarding the position of the shower and the soap and shampoo places.
The Sunset Dreams Studios are situated in the north-west part of the island of Ikaria, near the bay of Na, a magnificent location

Come and visit Sunset Dreams Studios yourself. No words can adequately describe what you are going to see.
We highly recommend it for relaxation and well-being. You cannot miss such opportunities.
The studios are a little a bit out of action. You ahve to walk a lot and during the night bthere are no lights on the streets. Even the studio does not have adequate lighting to guide you there.
There could be be nicer if they were looked after but the studio we were given did not feel that it was looked after well. The beds were good and the studio spacious but not so pleasand for us.
All of the studios have a spectacular view of the sunset *every* night. Studios include everything needed for a short or extended stay. Location is great with Nas just a few steps away and Armenistis just a few minutes drive. Great place to stay while exploring the island and the owners are very helpful. The property even includes a garden that guests can pick their own produce for cooking!! BEST tomatoes and white eggplants!!
