About Sibylle Kim
Passionate about Vermont's landscape and people, very much reminding me about my native roots in Southern Germany.
Sibylle Kim purchased this Villa in 2005
Why Sibylle Kim chose Waterbury
We are East Coast city folks who love Vermont and its pristine Green Mountains. When our children were born, we decided to buy that dream vacation home allowing our family to have a wonderful, well-balanced 'double life'. We chose the Waterbury, VT location for its proximity to various ski resorts (Stowe, Sugarbush, Bolden Valley), great recreational and culinary offerings, and easy access to I-89.
What makes this Villa unique
VILLA AUSBLICK is a family-friendly sanctuary for discerning vacationers seeking mountain solitude. It is a very unique rental property that serves the varied needs of many different guests which could be a large, multi-generational family reunion or a group retreat coming together for a vacation, to celebrate the Holidays or a special life milestone (big birthday, engagement, wedding, baby shower, college commencement). For me personally VILLA AUSBLICK is simply the perfect place to tune out from my busy day-to-day life, reconnect with nature and find my inner peace. Once you arrive, you will understand.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Fantastic family vacation spot!
Five Stars August 2019
Villa Ausblick provided a beautiful setting for our spread-out family of six adults and four children to be together. In addition to the gorgeous view, the summer gardens were lovely and the pool was popular with everyone. We ventured out for shopping, golf and the requisite visit to Ben & Jerry’s, but mostly we were happy to amuse ourselves at the villa. The house is spacious, well-equipped and well-organized. We mostly did our own cooking, but we’ll admit to one dinner of take-out pizza and a lunch at Von Trapp’s Brewery. Our most special meal was a chef’s dinner organized with the help of the villa’s concierge. We ate at a charmingly set table on the lawn with the chef introducing each course of delicious food. After a wonderful week together, we returned to our respective homes in New Hampshire, Virginia and Calgary, Alberta with lots of special memories. Even from afar, Sybille is on top of every detail. For that, we thank her.
Wonderful house in a beautiful setting
The house was exactly what we had hoped for and it was a wonderful way to celebrate a 50th wedding anniversary with three generations. It was particularly fun for our 7-year old grandchildren.
We loved our stay at this house! It exceeded our expectations from the decks, views, pool, basement, living room, everything was perfect for a group of friends to sit back and relax. The house is clean, spacious and has everything we needed. I cannot wait to come back in the future. Sibylle is an amazing host and will answer any and all questions you have. I cannot recommend this house enough. Thank you again for sharing your house with us!
Another happy guest, another 5*-review we are very grateful for, thank you! If only we could figure out how to better capture Villa Ausblick's magic on photos. You just have to experience it for yourself!
Big Family Wedding Base Camp
Visited for a big family wedding in Waterbury. House was great holding everyone from great grandma to newborn! Toddler loved the toy room!
Offering comfortable lodging for multi-generational family reunions is truly our niche. And since we aim to please every single guest - even our youngest ones - we restock Villa Ausblick's kids playroom every year with a few new toys.
Great views in a very nice and spacious house
The house is great, just as described in the pictures. Kitchen was stocked with good cookware, everything was clearly labeled, bedrooms are all a good size, and common space was perfect for a group of 12. Hot tub was nice to have and overlooks a beautiful sunset at the end of the day. My group had a great stay, definitely recommend it.
Thank you for your 5* compliment. Optimizing the living space for the needs and comforts of a large traveling group definitely takes some thought. We are glad you enjoyed your stay.
A PERFECT FAMILY GETAWAY
We are a large family - 12 adults and 2 small children - and Villa Ausblick made for the perfect family vacation. The pictures here can't adequately capture the beauty of the property and home. Your time at Villa Ausblick will exceed your expectations. The property speaks for itself - what I want to emphasize is how outstanding the property owners are! From the very beginning of the process, Sibylle was incredibly helpful and responsive to every single question and need that we had. Sibylle and Peter have mastered the vacation rental concept. The home itself is designed for guests that are unfamiliar with the place (drawers, cabinets, closets, light switches, etc. are all clearly labeled.). They provided us with a detailed guide to the house including instructions for everything like the hot tub and appliances. Sibylle has created walk through videos that you can watch before you go so that you know exactly what you do and don't need to bring with you. Bottom line - we could not imagine a more lovely home and hosts for our perfect family getaway!
We are grateful for this incredible affirmation of what we love to do: to give our Villa Ausblick visitors a wonderful, stress-free vacation they will long remember.
Personally, we are deeply humbled knowing that at Villa Ausblick we allow for very special memories to be created. As in this case, a large family reunion of grandparents with adult children and young offspring spending the Holidays together. This was a family with 4 grown sons all serving in the Navy and traveling as far as from Japan!
