Mark and Kim have owned boathouse19 in Eton, nr Windsor for nearly 9 years. After successfully renting another bespoke Spanish luxury home for several years, and retiring from our disabled bathroom business. we decided to turn boathouse19 into a unique luxury holiday home destination especially suited for family holidays.
We love watching peoples faces as they enter the house for the first time, and love listening to peoples comments of wow, wow, and wow, it makes it all worthwhile, especially now after three years of renting, as many of our discerning guests return year on year.
Owner purchased this house in 2006
Why Owner chose Windsor & Eton
Boathouse19 was originally an old Eton College School boathouse and was used by Eton College School boys for rowing from approx 1890 until approx 1970.
We stumbled upon boathouse19 after we had renovated another property in Bray Berkshire, which Heston Blumanthal from the Fat Duck restaurant decided to put in an offer to buy. With this in mind, we went to see this delightful unique cottage and boat house and immediately fell in love with the location. We made our offer which was accepted, even though the house needed a complete over-hall to bring it back to it's former glory.
Boathouse19 was certainly a once in a lifetime opportunity, as prime waterfront houses with moorings in the centre of Eton and Windsor are normally only reserved for the rich and famous, and not mere mortals like ourselves.
After completely gutting a 1970's rebuild, we set upon trying to make boathouse19 the perfect family holiday home, and after 14 listed building approvals and approx a £500,000 spend, have achieved our goal of creating a bespoke and unique, beautiful home for all our guests to enjoy.
What makes this house unique
Boathouse19 Eton is unique in every way, and perfectly located on the Eton side of Windsor with commanding views of the River Thames, Windsor Castle, Windsor town and beyond.
Individually styled with reclaimed floors and doors to match the historic ships beams and steels the house oozes charm, and luxury throughout.
Be the envy of everyone in Windsor & Eton, and book a few days or a week, we know you will return again and again.
Guestbook comments from the manager
“Wonderful wedding on the water!”
Reviewed 12 December 2011 This is the most fabulous house! We chose to hire the house from Mark and Kim for our "wedding weekend" in November. From the out set they were so helpful in arranging times for us to go and see the property so we could plan our weekend around the Windsor and Eton area.
From check in time to check out Mark and Kim were always on hand to help, advise and look after us. Being at the end of the phone if we needed anything at all.
Boathouse 19 itself is an absolutely stunning property in such a majestic location. I can imagine that everyone who visits just doesnt want to leave. It has all the quality of a 5 star hotel with the luxury of feeling that you are in your own home.
We arrived to a fully stocked fridge and larder, spotlessly clean house with everything in perfect working order.
We enjoyed lunch from the ingredients left for us overlooking the Thames and Windsor Castle from the deck at Boathouse 19 and then entertained our family the night before the wedding with a "Captains Cocktail Reception" on the Friday night. It was just perfect.
My family all then stayed here with me and we got ourselves ready for the main event on Saturday afternoon!
The absolute highlight was returning from church for a short comfort break before the reception to find that in the short time whilst we were gone, Mark and Kim had staged the house with little vases of flowers, copious tealights and candles, beautiful scents and had laid the deck like an outside lounge - it was just stunning! We watched our guests walk across Windsor Bridge to the reception and then joined them after a few pictures with Windsor Castle in the background!
We retuned after the party to a beauitiful wedding gift from Mark and Kim and then we woke up Sunday morning to the sound of the bells at St Georges Chapel and enjoyed fresh croissants from the bakery whilst we got packed up!
We all agreed that Boathouse 19 and the church ceremony itself were the most special and memorable parts of our very lovely weekend and that's saying something as the whole celebration from start to finissh was just incredibly perfect!
Mark and Kim are quite frankily the perfect hosts - thank you so much....
