Kaldbaks-kot Cottages Husavik Reviews
Stupendous Location & View! May 18, 2012
This is THE place to stay if you are travelling to the Husavik area! This accommodation is small, wooden cottages directly on the Greenland Sea with unobstructed views across the water of the stunning, snow-capped mountains on the other side. THE VIEWS AND PEACE & QUIET ARE BREATH-TAKING!
We had a small 1-bedroom cottage (#4 - Hellavik) with its own parking spot beside it. It was fully furnished with a sitting room with sofa and chair, and had a self-catering kitchen too with small table & chairs, electric stove and microwave, cutlery, plates, cups, coffee maker, etc...All you need to make your own meals comfortably.
We had to pay about 10 Euros extra for bedding (which was a little odd) and the bedroom was only big enough to fit the bed in it with a small closet. The bathroom was small, basic and rustic, but clean and water wasn't a problem. I imagine that the hot water came right out of the ground, given the sulphurous smell, but no problem and always hot.
A small sitting deck out front overlooked the view stated above (WOW) and had chairs, a table and a small barbequeue for outdoor cooking if that's your thing. There are all kinds of birds in the area too and binoculars were also sitting in the cabin for us to use. There was wifi in the cabin too, if you can believe that!
These cottages are about 1.5km's south of Husavik, so it's easy to get to town for groceries, restaurants, the famous whale watching tours, museums or whatever you want to do in this historic town.
These cottages are not "luxury" by any stretch of the imagination, but the location and overall vibe is unforgettable: Worth every bit of the 100 Euro/night price tag. Go here if you want to experience the nature of Iceland in a quiet, pristine, cabin setting!
