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!

Great location, comfortable beds

  • 4 of 5

Overall, a very nice flat in a perfect location in the city. The only drawbacks were the freezer with no ice maker and an old cathode ray TV with a cable box that doesn't function that well. Most channels have a sort of white noise in the background. Thankfully, TV watching on this trip was not a priority.

Sweet Home Reykjavik

  • 5 of 5

The little red Icelandic house, just a half a block from the amazing and beautiful Hallgrímskirkja Church. It is and was for us everything we could ask for in lodging. It's warm and cozy, comfortable with home like amenities plus, it's close to city attractions, shopping, food and an easy pickup location for most tour operators. It gives you a sense of what living in Reykjavik might be like. We fell in love with the Drekinn Store/Grill where we could find an assortment of grocery items, people watch and enjoy some delicious local prepared food. If you visit in the summer remember a sleep mask as it never gets dark.

Wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

We all said how lucky we were to be in The Red House for our stay in Iceland. It was roomy, very convenient and nice and homey. The only issue (if you could call it that) was when we went to do laundry and couldn't figure out how to use the machine. We did manage to get it going but the cycle seemed longer than it needed to be -- the upside was that our clothes never looked cleaner! Maybe some instructions in different languages would be helpful as we felt like we were perhaps wasting water. We also appreciated the items that were left by previous tenants (some jam, butter and bread) and we left our coffee and some other items to pay it forward. We loved Iceland and the vibe. If we go back we will be sure to book The Red House.

Great base for Iceland stay.

  • 4 of 5

My family of four stayed in the flat for 3 nights during the Easter holiday. The flat was just as presented in the online profile. Appreciated the twin beds in the 2nd bedroom; gave our teenagers their own sleeping space. Beds, bedding and pillows were comfy. Place was clean upon arrival. Loved all the natural light in the living room/kitchen area and window shades are there if you want more privacy. Bottom flat was rented for part of our stay and we didn't hear a peep from our downstairs neighbors; hopefully, it was the same for them. :) Location of flat is great - it's within walking distance to everything in the downtown area. Delicious bread shop is right around the corner, as are at least three coffee shops. Grocery store across the street has wide selection and prices were pretty good. We had a rental car and parked up in the church parking lot each night with no problems (though there was ample street parking right by house - just didn't want to sort out parking meters.) Wifi worked fine during our stay, too. Enjoyed our stay at the flat and recommend it to others looking for a nice play to spend some time in Iceland.

Amazing location and the perfect little flat

  • 5 of 5

Other than a small mix up with getting us in for the regular check-in time, everything was amazing with this flat. The location is absolutely perfect, you honestly could not get a more central location with parking and everything you need all in one spot in Reykjavik. The rooms were great, well furnished, it was nice to have TV to keep the kids occupied for an hour before bed. So easy to park down the street at the church and not have to worry about paying for parking. Ran across the street to the grocery store several times during our 4 days in the flat and they had everything we needed. Coffee shops, restaurants and shopping all within steps. We will for sure be staying here again in the future.
