About Mark Wiles

I am American who married a wonderful Icelandic girl and raised our children in Iceland. We kept these apartments to have a home in Iceland when we return for visits.

Why Mark Wiles chose Reykjavik

We waited for the right property to come up for sale, having already decided we wanted to be on Skólavörðustígur. It was always our favorite street in Reykjavik.

What makes this apartment unique

The feeling that we are part of a great city when we are home!

Perfect Location- Right in the center of everythig

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Mark. Our family (6 members) had a wonderful stay the Red House Upper flat. The flat is close to shops and everything is in walking distance. It was clean, spacious, warm and comfortable. Our kids loved walking to near by cafes on their own, it is safe. The flat also has toys for little kids. We would stay there again and would recommend the flat to those traveling with kids. Thank you Mark again for all your help and making us feel very comfortable and at home.

A great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The interior design of the condo is very pretty, everything is very well maintained and clean. Parking was easy, and the condo is in walking distance of all the sights in Reykjavik. The owner is very friendly. Staying here was a great pleasure and we highly recommend this place for your vacation in Iceland.

So comfortable for 3

  • 5 of 5

This rental was perfect for three of us, bright and sunny and had everything we needed, including the washer/dryer. Just down the block from the cathedral (Hallgrimskirkja), so easy to find and we parked free within a block for four days. One can hear folks walking/talking on the street, but generally this is a quiet section at night, not in the main restaurant/bars area - and we were there on a weekend and on Icelandic National Day! We loved being on the upper floor (the spiral staircase is no problem unless you have mobility issues). Convenient to everything and we walked all over town. Mark was very organized and provided all the details

needed in advance. Felt like our little home away from home.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is in a great location. The apartment is nice, a little small, but overall a great rental. You can walk to everything in Reykajevic. If you do rent a car parking is not too challenging. You have to pay for on street parking or park at the Cathederal a couple blocks away for free. Owner communicated easily and addressed issues very quickly after we arrived.

Loved this place!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 (2 adults and 2 teens) stayed in the upper flat for 3 days. It is clean, bright, roomy and the beds are very comfortable. We loved having a washer and dryer as well. We didn't need a car since the flat is located within walking distance of everything Reykjavik!

We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay for our visit. We recommend this place to everybody visiting Reykjavik!

Perfect apartment!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for 3 adults for 4 nights at the end of our 14 day tour around Iceland. The location is excellent, within walking distance of the harbour, shopping, restaurants etc. The apartment is bright, clean and comfortable - including the beds. Parking on the street was never an issue for us. When we arrived home at night we would plug the meter as you can pay in advance for the next morning. The wifi was excellent. Look no further, you'll be happy with this in every way.
