Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at Brix Haus for a week. We found the house to be very pleasant.

As we did not have a car we travelled by train to places all along the Mosel. We were delighted to stay in a place where it was not necessary to have a car. We are a mature couple who like walking. The house and area were very peaceful.

Great house in a lovely setting

  • 5 of 5

What can I say? Beautiful house. Well equipped, plenty of room, clean and in a lovely setting overlooking a stream. We are a family of 5, the three children are older teens. We all were very comfortable here, nice mornings enjoying breakfast on the balcony taking in the sound of the stream and mountain views. And relaxing evenings in the house playing games or deciphering some German TV. The house is set over 3 floors, lots of room and very cozy at the same time.

Moselkern itself is a quiet village right next to the Mosel, very picturesque and retiring, perfect for unwinding after a day's activity. The house is on the doorstep of one of the oldest preserved castles in Germany, Burg Eltz. If you drive to the car park from the house you'll have a 30 minute walk to get to it. Worth a visit taking in the tour.

Moselkern is within striking distance of many towns and cities. Cochem is about 20 minutes away by car on the river with more shops and restaurants and plenty of places to buy wine. We also took in Frankfurt, Koln and Koblenz. A fair bit of driving so set off early if you decide to do that.The cable car ride at Koblenz was enjoyable.

This was a lovely holiday for all of us, Germany was great but the house was the icing on the cake.

Fiona was very businesslike with the booking and very helpful in giving us the information we needed. I understand this is also her home and it shows. Good quality furnishings, well equipped and very clean. A great find.

Would I recommend? Certainly. Best property we've rented for a holiday!

Beautiful living

  • 4 of 5

I was very pleased with the accommodation and living space. I was there with my family with 2 children and some friends. I whole place is so lovely and a very friendly family homely environment to stay. We were there for 14 days and enjoyed it very much. The location was also a very lovely and calming environment. I would recommend Brix House to anyone looking for somewhere homely and family like to stay.

Tolles Haus mit kleinen Mängeln

  • 4 of 5

Wir haben uns in dem großzügigen Haus wohl gefühlt.

Ein paar kleinere Mängel, die aber in Ferienhäusern durchaus üblich sind haben wir allerdings schon entdeckt. Dazu gehört der schmutzige Backofen, ein nicht funktionierender DVD Player und eine Senseomaschine, die nur Espresso machen kann, da zu wenig Wasser durchläuft.Allerdings gibt es noch eine normale Maschine für Filterkaffee und diese funktionierte.

Auf jeden Fall hatten wir eine schöne Zeit in dem Haus in Moselkern.

Super auch für Familien

  • 4 of 5

Wir waren mit zwei kleinen Kindern und drei Erwachsenen in diesem Ferienhaus und es war wirklich gut. Viel Platz, mehr als genug Badezimmer und eine gute Ausstattung. Uns fehlte nur etwas Küchenausstattung (großer Topf, Backblech, Auflaufform), aber die sehr freundliche Nachbarin hat uns da ausgeholfen.

Gestört hat uns nur, dass manches nicht ganz sauber war (beispielsweise der Spiegelschrank im Bad) und dass der Schreibtischcontainer voller Sachen war, die für unsere Kinder gefährlich werden können (z.B. Medikamente). Die Umgebung ist einfach traumhaft und wir kommen gern wieder!

Owner's Response: We are so pleased that you had a good time. It must be noted It is also our German home and my desk has personal items. At my desk and office space there are diaries, account books, pens paper etc. The mirrored unit (1974) in the bathroom is used by us. It is clean inside but does have marks which do not not come off- it is not usually used by guests. The house is itself extremely clean. Our housekeeper does a great job. As the house is our home we try and keep the rental price as low as we can . We offer a Very large delightful architect designed built house in the heart of the Mosel beautifully decorated and refurbished at a very reasonable price.

The villageis on the banks of the Mosel, On is home to Burg Eltz which is the most famous German castle and a picture of the castle used to be printed on Deutsche Mark notes. Both the castle and village look as if they have escaped from a fairy story.

I There are ancient timber framed cottages, narrow cobbled lanes and impressive vineyards.

An excellent train service and road network few minutes away , guarantee an easy access from and to all parts of Europe. There are countless tourist attractions, walking and cycle paths so you will never be bored.

The village is about 13 miles from the picturesque town of Cochem and about 20 miles from Koblenz. You can enjoy an interesting day trip to historic Burg Eltz Castle, Bernkastel Kues, Krov and many other places.

There is sailing , biking, swimming pools all within easy reach. You can stay at Moselkern with out a car as there is a station with a train which goes to all the stations along The Mosel,
