SunRise Hotel





















Summer 2018 we had first time our vacation in Ireon. We were walking and cycling in the neighborhood enjoying easy holiday feeling. It was our extra week in our loveliest island. We fell in love with this tiny village.







The main road through the village was peaceful and traditional. In the square people gathered in the evening to socialize and children were playing. 

There were lovely beaches to rest and swim. Our favorite swimming place was  just beside Eptastadio




Many times we were wondering what kind of hotel was that beautiful building called SunRise Hotel. At home I sent an email and asked about reservation for summer 2019 and after all we had lovely five nights at this place in last June. Those days were a wonderful start for our dream holiday in Samos.

























SunRise Hotel is a family business runned by Popi and her children with great staff. Hotel is build by Popis father and young generation has lots of fresh ideas to renew the atmosphere and decor with respect to the hotel traditions.

Hotel is full of lovely details and the lobby area is inviting as well as the breakfast room and the pool area with stylish white sunbeds.









We got a room with sea view on the second floor as we wished. My passion was to take lots of pictures of  sunrises early in the morning. Our pleasure was to open the doors and listen to the waves and feel on our skin the first sunshine's rays.

Every morning we went for a swim. It was only couple of minutes to walk to our favorite corner for a refreshing experience. After that it was time for a delicious breakfast: fresh oranges and the most tasty bread, boiled eggs, delicious youghurt with honey and granola.















This hotel was intimate and inviting. We felt the hotels good wibes and enjoyed every moment.  There was lots of great traditions with modern twist. The owners were such wonderful, gentle persons. Happy that we met them and we will meet soon again!

Kindly, Tuija and Lauri

SeaView Apt.






















































Outdoor shower in my mind





















Two balconies in my mind








Beach life in my mind








SeaView Apartment in Psili Ammos was an amazing experience. We visited this beautiful apartment in June. Two nights in a peaceful apartment just beside the sea made me feel like this was the best holiday ever. It felt like paradise!

As you can see in these pictures this apartment has been decorated with love and good taste. When we arrived to Psili Ammos we met the lovely owners: Chris and Artemis. Thankful for their hospitality and the possibility to stay in their place for two nights.

The kitchen is fully equipped if you want to cook yourself. Near is restaurants if you want to go for a lunch or dinner. You must walk only few minutes by the beach. 

Easiest way to arrive to SeaView Apt. is by car but it is also possible to come by boat from Pythagorion harbour every now and then. I am sure that Artemis and Chris will help you with this opportunity.  

In this village is one small Mini Market where you can buy supplies for your breakfast. Bigger markets are few kilometres from Psili Ammos.

The sandy beach is suitable for little children because it is shallow. This apartment is most suitable for an adult couple. There is lots of proper stairs. 

The yard was also really impressive. All the details were planned precisely. Lots of green plants all over the garden where was a cat with its little kittens playing. Reality television show was to look at those.

One of the numerous great details was the outdoor shower. I fell in totally love with it. After marvellous days on the beach it was an unprecedented experience to take a shower outside. However the bathroom inside was also the most stylish I have ever seen.

We enjoyed our staying to the moon and back. Lauri was playing his guitar on the balcony while I was photographing all over the SeaView Apt. 

On the beach was a specially perfect tree for my hammock. There was also two sun beds for us and a traditional chair for my musician. Yes, we had the most wonderful time in Psili Ammos which is just opposite to the Turkish coast. We saw lots of nice boats while we were sitting on the balcony or swimming in Aegean Sea. Water was warm and refreshing at the same time. 

I am so happy that we had this co-operation with this skilful couple. I hope you can feel the distinctiveness of this excellent apartment which is only a few steps from the beach. I can recommend this place for your holiday from the bottom of my heart.
