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!

Beautiful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

What a welcome we had! We arrived late at the apartment. All the lights were on and it was lovely and warm which immediately lifted our spirits after a tiring journey. This apartment was spacious, clean and had everything you could possibly need on your holiday. It was always warm as the heating took care of itself and beds were comfortable. It has a washer/ dryer which was great for when caught out in snow! It also had shower gels, shampoo, washing up liquid etc so you did not have to spend on such things and use very little and have to leave behind because you are traveling only with hand luggage! Iceland is very expensive so this was a big big plus! There was also coffee and coffee maker which we enjoyed very much every morning. Check out the kitchen cupboards before you go to the supermarket across the road. Tour pick up were easy. Directly opposite or up the road at the nearest hotel. Location was EXCELLENT ! We walked everywhere with the harbour being the furthest and only 10 mins away. Lots of shops and restaurants around.

My family of 4 adults will be staying here again next time we are in Iceland.

I never write reviews but It is the first time I have come across a perfect apartment where the owner has thought of everything!

Thank you Mark.

Wonderful stay in Reykjavik!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was very clean and spacious - just perfect for our family of 4. The furniture was comfortable and the washer and dryer were definitely a plus. It was very convenient to a local grocery store and a hotel for tour pick-ups. It was very near the tourist shopping part of town which made walking around easy. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone lucky enough to visit Reykjavik.

Great value for our family visit

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable beds and kitchen that was easy to prepare meals in and serve on large dining table. Appreciated the high chair, bib and dishes for our two year old. Used both the washer and dryer. The extra electrical converters helped us to keep all of our devices charged. Clean and comfy.

Location of this first floor apartment was ideal. Downtown Reykjavik was a ten minute walk and a small grocery store only steps away. Gray Line bus drop off and pickup at nearby hotel was a breeze.

Highly recommend!

Perfect Home Base for our Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we stepped into the foyer we knew we made a perfect choice for our home base in Iceland! This beautiful, clean and comfortable apartment set a positive tone for our trip. The fully equipped kitchen allowed us to eat in a few times and the washer and dryer were especially helpful after a four day stop in Boston before arriving in Reykjavik. The location was ideal for shopping and sightseeing: the street in front has many shops and restaurants and also leads directly to the Hallgrimskirkja church. Highly recommend!

Just about perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived for a 2 night short stay in Reykjavik. Was shocked by how large this place is - most properties I've rented have been much smaller than they appear in the photo. Not the case here at all, it's even better than the photos! There was everything we needed, we only ate breakfast in, but it did appear it had everything you would need to cook a meal. Location was perfect, just down the street from the church, which is a great landmark to find your way back to when wandering around the city. Main shopping street and tons of restaurants all around. We went to the SakeBarin restaurant a few blocks down the street and it was fabulous, next night checked out the Public House Gastropub that had inventive creative tapas. Highly recommend.

We occasionally heard footsteps from the apartment above, but it certainly was no bother. Only extremely minor negatives were that the towels were a little rough, almost like they were line-dried, but didn't soften up; also the shades did let in a bit of light in the front bedroom, it didn't keep me up, but a sensitive person may wish to bring and eye mask during the summer months, again very minor.

Mark was extremely fast and professional in responding to emails.

Next time I'm in Reykjavik I will definitely be staying here again. I can't recommend this apartment enough. My friend and I both said we'd love to have an apartment like it.

One little hint: might want to check the fridge before buying any coffee, we brought a bag with us from our previous night's stay, and there were 2 in the fridge, we left the rest of ours there, too. And, there are coffee filters.
