Location & Nearby
You can find the Harbor View Cottages on the coast of Grindavik, a town on the Reykjanes Peninsula of Iceland. This settlement has a population of around 3,300, making it quite significant for this small country, and it thus has a wealth of amenities. Within easy walking distance, you’ll be able to find grocery stores, restaurants and bars, and tourist shops.
The town is also a great example of the peninsula’s local fishing culture, as it has been an essential outpost for centuries. While here, you can also learn about the folklore of the surrounding area, which is said to be home to many elves, trolls, ghosts, and witches. Furthermore, you can hike into the volcanic nature of lava landscapes surrounding you.
By car, you can reach a range of cultural and natural sites with ease. For example, the Blue Lagoon, one of the most popular attractions, is just ten minutes drive north. Here, you can bask in healing azure waters and enjoy silica masks, unique therapies, and facilities such as saunas and steam rooms.
Traveling west, you can reach the mystical mud pools at Gunnhver in 15 minutes and the Bridge Between the Continents in 20. Meanwhile, traveling east, you can also get to the new lava created by Fagradalsfjall volcano by driving for 15 minutes, though you will have to hike a little from the car park to get there and the lake of Kleifarvatn in half an hour.
Iceland’s only international airport, Keflavik, is only 25 minutes away, and Reykjavik’s capital city is just 50. From Reykjavik, you can easily set out on sightseeing routes such as the Golden Circle.
Facilities & Amenities
The Harbor View Cottages are all self-contained units, providing you with a compact home-away-from-home. Each has a double bedroom, a living room with a sofa bed and flat-screen television, a fully furnished kitchen, a private bathroom, and a small terrace. Each covers around 29 square meters.
The decor within is chic, clean, and cozy, reflective of modern Icelandic design.
Looking out from the windows is spectacular, as you can marvel over the ocean from the front and mountains from the back. If you want to book a front-row cottage for even better views, be sure to specify while making your booking.
Free WiFi is provided for all guests, as is free parking. You will discover a large sundeck and a children’s play park on-site, allowing adults to relax as kids play.
