We stayed at the Diamond for a week in July. The Villa certainly lived up to all expectations. The location is great (we flew into Hahn) and all amenities are nearby. The weather was brilliant for the week which was a bonus.
The villa has absolutely everything a family of 5 would need. The beds were comfortable and and bedrooms spacious. Having two bathrooms was also welcome. The gardens are lovely, especially the barbeque and garden seating area. We enjoyed having breakfast on the beautiful terrace - complete with sun loungers.
There is plenty to do in the area, from hiking to just relaxing. The small town of Herrstein was particularly lovely. We also found a fantastic outdoor swimming pool in Kirn approx 20 mins away - which has a separate kiddies pool, 30 metre swim pool and also a pool complete with slide and water massage area. There are also other good outdoor pools in the vicinity. The restaurants in Idar Oberstein down by the Mineral Musuem and Felsenkirche (10 mins away) were good value for money.
Thank you Anna and Klaus, we had a fantastic holiday and we hope to come back again.

Warm, Gorgeous, and Homey
The Diamant Villa is a five-star certified property which sits perfectly in the town of Morscheid. While providing the beautiful tranquility of the country-side, Frankfurt’s city life is more than worth the commute. There are two airports within a one hour’s commute (Airport-one hour, Hahn-30 minutes). For anyone looking to submerge themselves into the German culture, this would be the ideal area to adventure in. My family and I received our friends arriving from abroad stayed with us for a holiday.
We all wanted so much to interact with the local residents. We were all pleasantly surprised how they welcomed us so warm and courteous despite how little Deutch we were able to speak. Once we met the owners and how inviting they made us feel, allowed us to feel at home. After an all around positive experience, my family and I would unquestionably recommend the Diamant Villa for anyone interested in renting a villa within the German state of Hensen.
Wir hatten ein sehr schönes Wochenende bei Ihnen.
Wir waren mit vier Personen vor Ort. Die Ferienwohnung hatte alles was wir brauchten um ein schönes Wochenende zu verbringen. Außerdem diente sie uns als Ausgangspunkt für Ausflüge in das Umland.
We felt cheated on many levels
The pictures online are incorrect and later we found out: even deceiving.
Upon arrival the disappointed started : there was only a small groundfloor, which felt like a basement. Online pictures are show of the TOTAL house, which consists of 2 apartments, so including the other (better) above apartment. Even reviews are of both appartements. We have been travelling a lot through online platforms like HomeAway, but we never experienced the likes of this.
We found the interior to be very basic: the dinner table is so small, that even with our two small children we could hardly manage. The second ‘sleepingroom’ was a like a cupboard with no windows. We could hear the drainage of the apartment above loudly, everytime a toilet was flushed. We had been travelling a lot with our children, but this was the first time that they told us they were scared. All rooms feel very basic and makeshift. We felt tucked away in the basement.
Also we found a dead mouse in the 2nd sleepingroom, that was dried out. It had been lying there dead for quite some time.
But the most uncomfortable aspect was, that the whole house isn’t adequate for 2 seperate groups: the house is very VERY noisy. We could hear our neighbours talking literally, walking, having a shower, toilet, etc. The two apartments are ‘separated’ through a glass door that just isn’t enough to give a basic level of privacy.
On top of that these guest were very loud during the night. At 4:30 a.m. I asked them to be a bit more quiet since we were sleeping. They very bluntly told us that they didn’t care and kept playing music until 7:30 in the morning.
Altogether, this made us feel so uncomfortable and unwelcome, that we decided to leave the next day.
After that we reached out to Klaus, who proved to be and an uncaring host. Right from the start we felt that he reacted very formal, without any sympathy for our situation. He implied that we lied about the dead mouse, denied the incorrect information on the HomeAway website and made a formal remark that the residents should be quiet after 22:00hrs. But as a host he never set the conditions for 2 groups staying together in a comfortable manner: no reception upon arrival and no instructions/ house rules beforehand.
At home, we checked the description of the house again, now with new knowledge. We concluded that the information is incorrect and even deceiving. Pictures are incorrect and reviews are of the total house and misleading.
Schöne Lage, Ideal für ein Pärchen
Schöne Natur drumherum, Einkaufs- und Freizeitmöglichkeiten in der Nähe, schöner gepflegter Garten, komfortabel, auf jeden Fall weiter zu empfehlen
Schönes Ferienhaus mit weitläufigem Gartenidyll in ruhiger Lage mit angrenzenden Feldern und Wäldern
Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt im Hunsrück sehr genossen, auch wenn wir das Gartenidyll aufgrund regnerischen Wetters nicht voll nutzen konnten. Aber zumindest für unseren Hund war es ein Paradies. Die Gegend bietet viele Ausflugsziele, die wir in einer Woche nur ansatzweise erkunden konnten. Die ebenerdige Ferienwohnung (Achat) ist geräumig und funktional, allerdings ist das 2. Schlafzimmer aufgrund des verdunkelten Lichtschachtes tatsächlich nur zum Schlafen geeignet. Jedoch gleichen dies die hellen und geräumigen anderen Räume aus. Für internetinteressierte Teenager ist schnelles WLAN verfügbar und sichert so deren Zufriedenheit - innerhalb des von ihren Vormündern erlaubten Zeitrahmens ;)... Aus Flachebenen entstammende Urlauber sollten sich übrigens genau überlegen, ob sie ihre Räder nicht lieber daheim lassen. Die bergige Landschaft mit zahlreichen saftigen Anstiegen kann so manchen Ragbegeisterten demotivieren... So haben wir die malerische Landschaft auf Schusters Rappen erkundet, natürlich längst nicht alles gesehen und uns deshalb vorgenommen, wieder zu kommen.
The idyllic small sleepy place Mörschied, with its 900 residents, is located very close to the world famous gem city Idar-Oberstein. Everyone who is interested in nature, gemstones, fossils and history, here comes their money. The Gemstone Route and the German castles and slate road have made this region in the heart of the Hunsrück famous. The village with its charming Herrnstein historic center from the Middle Ages and the wonderful wooded highlands of the Hunsrück, offers excellent opportunities for long walks.
