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 Grainau
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!

Excellent property and conditions
We stayed in the Balcony Apartment which is a very nice apartment with a magnificent view to the mountain and very close (walking distance) to the lifts. Definitely we want to come back to Garmisch and stay in the same apartment.
Thank you so much for your review. I really enjoyed meeting you and both your children and grandchildren and we would love to see you again next year! Best wishes, Suzanne
Cooles Appartment. Sehr geräumig und ruhig : )
Der Ausblick vom geräumigen Südbalkon auf die unverbaute Aussicht auf die Zugspitze ist der Hammer und eine Einladung für einen Drink mit Sonne zum heimkommen. Wir haben es genossen!
Schöne Zimmer und Bäder, gute Ausstattung.
Nachteil: das Stromwerk in direkter Nähe, uns hat es gestört.
Trotzdem eine schöne Wohnung für einen tollen Aufenthalt! B. Herold
Excellent apartment for family and friends who want to be close to the ski slopes.
We have had our last 2 winter vacations in this excellent apparent. We like it very much and definitely we would consider it again for our next winter vacation.
Amazing view and great location!
Suzanne's place was clean, comfortable, and in a great location.
Super schöne Wohnung mit Blick auf die Zugspitze
Service top, Sauberkeit top, Sonnenstühle auf dem Balkon wären gut
Best views in Garmisch-Partenkirchen
The view from the balcony and adjoining windows is simply magnificent. The owner was very responsive and always helpful. The apartment was large, clean and included all the expected amenities. The kitchen was spacious and functional. The bedrooms were large and filled with natural light. To clarify, two bedrooms face away from the scenic views, it is the kitchen, dining/living room, master bedroom and ensuite that have the views. The bathrooms were lovely. The master bedroom with ensuite was also lovely and the view of the Zugspitze from there is hard to beat. Whilst there is no outdoor area for kids to play (other than the balcony), the path through the fields is only as stone's throw away. The balcony is also spacious (we had breakfast on it every morning) and it's not shared with other apartments. The location is brilliant as it's on the very edge of Garmisch, meaning nothing gets in the way of the view to the Zugspitze, there are just the fields between this house and the next town, Grainau. We loved it so much we have already re-booked this apartment for the next trip.
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.
