Family of 5: Ages 12, 18, 23, Mom and Dad: 08-2011
Submitted: September 5, 2011
Stayed: July 2011
I wish I'd kept track of how many times a member of the family said "Wow!!" during our visit to Villa Ausblick. The views from the house and pool are spectacular and change often, depending on the time of day and weather. The house itself was spotless on arrival and tastefully decorated in an elegant but relaxed style. It is spacious, well laid out and we found all appliances to be in fine working order. Our eldest daughter appreciated the privacy of her own bedroom suite on the lowest level, while my wife and I enjoyed waking up to glorious mountain views up in the master bedroom. I gave the well-equipped kitchen a real work-out as our family tradition is that each member gets to choose their favorite meal for dinner. So, we grilled, we roasted in the oven, we sauteed, we boiled, etc. The hands-down favorite place to dine was out on the gazebo section of the front porch. Other than a quick jaunt to nearby Stowe and a few hours of shopping in Burlington our family wanted to stay on site, enjoying the pool and other amenities at the house. Our youngest is 12, but you could easily see how a family with children would enjoy a stay here (plenty of toys, a sand box and a tree house!). Had we been looking for a more active interaction with the area, local attraction information, restaurant menus and sightseeing brochures are provided. The closest supermarket/wine store is conveniently located less than 15 minutes away. You'd be hard pressed to know that civilization is in such close proximity.
This was a perfect house choice for our Family of 5. We will not only recommend it to our friends, but look forward to a return visit in the future. Thanks for providing our family with great memories of Summer Vacation 2011.
