About Suzanne Mayhew
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 in 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
Why Suzanne Mayhew chose Garmisch-Partenkirchen
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!
Guestbook comments from the owner
Just would like to say that we all had a brilliant time at your Loft apartment last week, we didn't have any problems so didn't need to contact you. It was my first visit to GP and I was very impressed with food, people, cleanliness..everything! Jasmine (our little girl) keeps asking if we can go back to the apartment- she loved it, especially the rainforest shower. So hopefully in the future we will return.
