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!

Location is great...

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the lower flat for one week. While it was a great location for accessing the downtown core on foot, the street noise (vehicle and pedestrians) kept us awake every night until the wee hours of the morning.

One of our best vacations, yet!

  • 5 of 5

A charming, flat within the city which was super clean and stocked with all of the essentials. I would consider contacting the owners again if we visit Iceland in the future.

If you decide to rent a car in Iceland, however, find out where a safe place to park it while at the flat. Our car was almost towed. Otherwise, we had a wonderful vacation!

Great House in Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

From the beginning the communication with the host was great and very accommodating. The house is exactly as described and pictured and perfectly located in the centre of town very accessible to all main attractions. We had a great time there and I would definitely recommend staying here.

Right in the Middle of City Center

  • 5 of 5

We loved this apartment right in the middle of the town center where all the shops, and restaurants are located. We stayed several nights and were able to walk out the door and right down the street filled with lovely stores and eating places.

We did not rent a car and it was not needed at all. The house is right across from the Villa Guesthouse where all buses and tours will pick you up. We did not use the kitchen much so can't speak to that. Owner was very helpful with information about location and getting around. Would definitely stay here again. Loved the location and loved Reykjavik!

Convenient location and helpful amenities.

  • 5 of 5

The Red House Flat was very conveniently located for walking about the city center. It was a clean property with a well equipped kitchen. We took advantage of the offered spices and herbs and cooked a beef stew to warm us up. It was a comfortable homey environment. We found parking on the street right outside the house.

The owner, Mark, provided great customer service in helping us prepare for the trip with consistently helpful suggestions. We definitely would recommend this rental for those who wish to stay in the city center.

We were lucky enough to hear an organist rehearse in the amazing church up the street. We enjoyed walking to the local restaurants and shops. We had a very nice day trip driving outside the city to see the horses and waterfalls. This was our second visit to Iceland and we hope to return again.

Enjoyable Stay at the Lower Flat

  • 5 of 5

We had a great (but too short) stay at the Red House Lower Flat. The flat itself is quite spacious and very well appointed for a rental. The kitchen was an especially pleasant surprise, exceeding almost any kitchen in a rental we have seen. The flat has those three other important things: location, location, location. Even though right on the street it was fairly quiet overnight. All of the communication prior to arriving was straight forward and accurate. Damage deposit return was quick. All in all, highly recommended.
