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 in Reykjavik

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four, 2 adults and 2 teenagers 15 and 17 stayed here for 5 days in March 2016. We LOVED it. The kids were very happy with their open room and the teenaged daughter was extremely happy with a washer and dryer! We stayed in the upper flat and loved it. The location was perfect, no better place to stay. Shops, bars, dining was all walkable. And the landmark Hallgrimskirkja was our beacon to find our way home most nights. Mark, the owner, is fantastic to work with.

There is a TV, which we really only wanted to use one time, but turning it on for TV was a little complicated. If that was my only little glitch, who cares! we would definitely stay here again.

NY to Reykjavik

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in the flat for 6 days in January. Perfect location in the middle of Reykjavik. Convenient to restaurants, shopping and points of interest. Apartment was well appointed and VERY clean. Having laundry was a huge plus with the bulky winter clothes! Would recommend the lower flat for anyone with limited mobility due to the spiral staircase to get up to the upper flat. Can't wait to return and stay in the red house again!

Amazing, Comfortable House and Location

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend staying at the Red House to anyone who visits Reykjavik. There were three of us (all adults) who stayed for a week in October. The house is comfortable, clean, and in a prime location. It's decorated with Icelandic charm, and looks a lot like many of the beautiful houses you see in Reykjavik. The house heats up really well, and is easy to adjust in each room for your preference. You have a lot of convenient amenities to use as well: washer/dryer, password-protected internet, dishwasher, stove, fridge, microwave, and coffee machine (remember that coffee shops open later in Reykjavik, after 9 or so, especially if you are taking early morning excursions outside of the city). Mark even stocked us with laundry soap, shampoo, and coffee.

The best part is that we were able to walk to Reykjavik's prime shopping district, restaurants, coffee shops, and bars, all the while never having to use a taxi service. We also took many excursions while in Iceland, which take you outside of the city (Blue Lagoon, Golden Circle, South Shore, Brewery tour, airport, etc.). This was also convenient, as we used Grey Line excursions. They pick you up directly in front of the house for your excursion -- extremely convenient! Drop off was sometimes in front of the house or near by (never more than a couple of blocks away), depending on the size of the bus that was returning.

Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

This rental flat is in the heart of the city! There was no need for a rental car since everything was walkable. Booking the reservation was straight forward and the owner was very responsive. The flat was well furnished with comfortable accommodations. I would highly recommend!

We loved this place for the 4 of us. The location couldn't be better. We used the kitchen extensively and found everything we needed. The beds were very comfortable. We liked having a washer and dryer there too. The wifi worked very well. Don't look further…book this wonderful apartment.
