Garmisch-Partenkirchen Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 separate light & spacious apartments & one chalet , Groups of 4-34 guests,

The Meadow House is a newly renovated three storey house lying directly on the Garmisch Meadows, near the Kreuzeckbahn and Alpspitz cable cars. There are two separately contained holiday apartments and a separate 4 bedroomed wooden chalet, which can be rented either individually to accommodate from 4 people or altogether to accommodate groups of up to 30 people. More details on the chalet which sleeps 8-10 people and has its own private sauna and whirlpool can be found by looking at property 1078739 on the HomeAway site.

The views of the flowery meadows and the mountains in summer and the ski slopes in winter really don't get much better than this!

We are very child-friendly and as Suzanne, the British owner, has lived in the area for over 10 years,we are happy to help out with skiing, hiking and sightseeing information to help you make the most of your stay. We live in the ground floor apartment.

We have free washing and drying facilities including powder and also a ski cellar. An Aldi supermarket is within an easy walk- as are bars and restaurants and a bakers. We have a bus stop outside the house with a regular service. In the summer it is a pleasant 30 minute walk into town.

Garmisch also has a great Farmers Market every Friday morning 8-1pm. Winter or summer there is a great range of local produce such as cheese, smoked trout, salami, Bavarian breads and sausages and other fresh produce and local crafts.

Garmisch hosts a variety of events all year round- Beer Festivals, Spring Festivals, Christmas markets, the Pre-Lent Fasching or Carnival among many other traditional and non-traditional fetes. We also make a great base for the Munich Oktoberfest ( beer festival) or the BMW bikers festival.

Off road parking is available for up to 2 cars per apartment. If you wish to bring more cars please do confer with the owner first. It is about a 12 euro taxi ride from the Garmisch train station.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Dear Suzanne



I wanted to let you know what a pleasure it was to stay in your place this past week. It was absolutely picture perfect. We had a beautiful sunny day on Friday, and then it stated snowing Sunday! I also want you to know that I have put your ad on my facebook page because I had a lot of people ask me for it. I hope you don't mind. Gerda was also extremely helpful with us moving in and gave us fantastic customer service. Take care!

Hello! I'm Suzanne. I'm British and grew up in Berkshire and when taking a break from my 'proper' career in London ten years ago, I ended up visiting friends who run the Local Cure Irish Bar in Garmisch for a few months skiing and boarding.

Like most people who intend on visiting Garmisch for a short break, I got hooked on the place and ended up staying! Garmisch not only has great mountains, skiing and everything you could wish for in terms of outdoor activites, it is also a really nice place to live- there's a good mix of locals and international residents who have moved here.

We have now spent 10 years being based in Garmisch, with interludes back in Brighton in the UK, and my son has grown up here. I really want to help people make the most of their stay to the local area and really welcome enquiries about the area and planning your stay- such as how to organise a surprise paragliding flight that will land in view of the house, to recommend an english ( or german) speaking babysitter, how to hire a horse-drawn carriage for those special occasions! Just ask!

Suzanne Mayhew purchased this apartment in 2009

I used to be a property developer in Brighton- and couldn't believe it when the Garmisch estate agent showed me what is now The Meadow House. A building with potentially the best view in Garmisch- directly on the meadows, with no future worries about anyone building in front of the house as it is zoned farmland, great off-road parking and it was a scruffy disused office building and warehouse with bars on the very small windows! What a waste!

Once the planning permission had been granted to turn the building into three luxury apartments, I couldn't wait to get started. Working with a well-respected local carpenter, we raised the roof in November 2010 to create the new all wood Loft apartment, knocked all the bars off the windows and put as much glass on the picture postcard view side as possible, adding a huge wooden balcony and terrace.

We welcomed our first guests in the summer of 2011- and since then have had many repeat visitors which has been lovely.

We really have had some truly lovely families and groups of people staying from all over the world, from the UK, Australia, Canada, Korea, the USA, Mexico, Egypt, Palestine, UAE, Saudi Arabia, India, Italy, Germany, Turkey, The Netherlands,France, Belgium, Switzerland, Sweden, Norway, Portugal and Spain- Garmisch really is an international destination!

AMAZING VIEW!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this apartment for four nights in September of 2012. Our party consisted of 4 adults and 4 children and the apartment was more than ample for our needs. It was very clean, well maintained, and nicely decorated. The owner was incredibly friendly and helpful. Free cable tv, wifi, and parking were included. The location was ideal. And the views were breathtaking, absolutely stunning! I definitely recommend this apartment if you're looking for an affordable place to stay in Garmisch!

The Meadow House directly overlooks the Grainau meadows and the Zugspitze mountain range- the highest in Germany. Cross-country ski trails are on the doorstep and you can watch skiers and snowboarders on the Kandahar and Olympia ski pistes from the windows. The cable cars are a 2 minute drive, The Loisach river is 200 m. away. The Austrian ski resorts of Lermoos and Ehrwald are also just 15 minutes by car. The paragliding school lands in the field next door. In the summer Garmisch is a mecca for hikers, bikers, climbers and canoeists. The Eibsee lake at the foot of the Zugspitze offers an idyllic mountain backdrop to swimming or boating. There are also great indoor and outdoor pools.Garmisch-Partenkirchen is a picturesque Bavarian town with many traditional restaurants, good shopping and a good night life. For history buffs, King Ludwig's fairytale castle Neuschwanstein is an hours drive and another palace- Schloss Linderhof a mere 30 minutes. Munich and Innsbruck are easily accessible

Other Activities: Rafting, hiking, cross-country skiing, kayaking,swimming in lakes and outdoor pools in summer, local farmers' markets, golf courses

Golf: There are three 18 hole golf courses- with spectacular mountain backdrops within a 20 minute drive- in Garmisch-Burgrain, in Oberau and also in Ehrwald in the neighbouring Austrian Tyrol.

Ski: Garmisch has two main ski areas- the Classic area which links the Hausberg, Kreuzeck and Alspitz lifts and the Glacial skiing area up on the Zugspitze.

The Hausberg area is where most of the ski and board schools are based with a great easy blue and a magic carpet area for children surrounded by lots of great bars and restaurants. There are reds or a black down to the valley from here. There are fantastic runs with spectacular views for beginners and for advanced skiers. The Olympic downhill run and the World Cup Kandahar are blacks which could test even professional skiers and the lifts have all been updated recently due to Garmisch hosting the 2011 Skiing World Championships.

The larger skipass includes the Austrian Tyrolean resorts of Lermoos and Ehrwald which are a mere 20 minutes by car. Without a car, it is a 15 minute walk to the lifts from the Meadow House- or we have a bus stop right outside the house. Please look at www.zugspitze.de for more ski maps and prices.
