About Heather

We are a family who now live in Bermuda, but originally lived in Marlow. We met in the High Street when we were 16 and we have been together for 22 years and now have two children. We wanted to buy a place for us to return to when we visit the UK, as we are fed up in staying in hotels - or "chinzy" vacation rentals. We really love Marlow - especially the park, and the river it is such a beautiful town and we wanted our children to grow up with a connection to it.

Heather purchased this house in 2013

Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

Well-equipped home exceptionally located around the corner from the high street. Marlow itself is a lovely little town with great restaurants and shops. It is a little out of the way without a car, but not an issue once you figure out the Marlow rail station schedule. Great property owners and manager. Highly recommend this property.

Charming Home on the Thames

  • 5 of 5

Organizing a Family Reunion trip from Texas to England for a group of 5 adults and three children (one a baby) and locating a place large enough to sleep everyone and host local family family members for visits was challenging, but 18 Station Road handled us well! And in short walking distance to the Marlow High Street for a fine collection of Restaurants and Cafes for dining (Burgers bakery on the end of Station Road at the High Street, a family favorite for amazing pastries, pies, and Breakfasts), we were never wanting for food. The Train Station to London (Paddington) is on the other end of the street. A few minutes on foot.

The Home includes a modern Kitchen with Porch Doors that fold open to a small enclosed Patio for Alfresco Dining and visiting in mild weather.

As Texans we missed the Air Conditioning during a heat wave that occurred during our stay, but with windows and porch doors open were comfortable. As senior family members my wife and I made the Loft Bedroom our cozy retreat from the rest of the family on the 2nd floor. We slept well with Skylight Windows here open to allow a breeze.

Marlow is a delightful town accessible to several historic homes and sites outside London, We made a day-trip to Stonehenge. Parking for a rent car is a challenge, it is for the locals too! There is a municipal parking lot on the next block over from this Home with free overnight spaces. But with Rail and Bus transportation all accessible you might not need the rental car?

We enjoyed our stay in this fine home and would book it again.

This was a perfect house for our family and friends to stay when here for our son's 21st birthday. It is beautifully decorated and has a fantastic kitchen area with outside space. The great location near to the High Street meant that our family could wander into town with ease.Nik,Heather and Greg were a pleasure to deal with and were very flexible with arrival times etc.The only issue as with everywhere in central Marlow was parking. I would highly recommend this property .

Perfect for families

  • 5 of 5

We spent a month in Marlow exploring the surroundings with our two children and Neice. I can't say enough wonderful things about our experience. The house is very well appointed, modern ammenities and close to everything we needed. Easy access to the train, the park and amazing walks. We loved all the pubs and especially enjoyed the coach and bills, the Indian place across the street was the best we ever had. We loved it so much b we are coming again next year !!

Station Road, Marlow

  • 5 of 5

Excellent property which met all of our needs. We travelled with small children and spent nearly three weeks in the house and had a great time. The house is tastefully furnished and has everything a family could need, i.e. multiple well furnished bedrooms, two bathrooms, stair gates, portacots, pushchairs etc. It is also within walking distance to everything the high street has to offer, great for an early morning stroll to get the newspaper and coffees or a dash out when supplies are needed. The house is close to the park and river, great for walks and to entertain the kids. Marlow is a very quaint town and historic town and its location provides easy access to Henley, Windsor, Oxford and London so it is a great place to use as a base.

Our Stay in Marlow

  • 5 of 5

As we were planning a trip with our young adult children, we came across the ad for this home to stay in that we felt would accommodate us all. The information on the web site seemed almost too good to be true. The owners were quite prepared in everything that they had added to their site. We booked our trip with excitement and upon our arrival we were not let down. The inside was immaculate, everything was new. There was more than enough space for all four of us, as a matter of fact there was one bedroom with bunk beds that was not occupied. We chose Marlow because our best friends do not live far. Marlow is a lovely little town and close to the train station that will take you London. The house is set in a quiet area with a well kept front and back yard. The stores are close by, within walking distance. We rented a car as we had planned to travel to more than London. Parking can be a bit tricky during the working hours until you get the hang of it. We would certainly stay here again and we would recommend it. The rental and banking process was seamless. The damage deposit was promptly refunded. My queries to the owner were answered within a few hours to days. Very efficient.

The Propety is 4 minutes away from lovely river walks along the River Thames and the fantastic Higginson Park. To be honest there is plenty to do in Marlow and the surrounding area. For those wanting to sightseeing and travel further afield - Windsor castle is a short 20 minute drive away. The house is close to the local station - trains into London take around 45 minutes. We are also a 40 minute drive away from the historic city of Oxford.
