About Sibylle Kim

We - "the 4 Kims - are a family residing in

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.

A little slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

Villa Ausblick is an absolutely amazing location to reunite and celebrate with friends and family. The natural beauty is stunning and the owners have gone out of their way to help you enjoy it by creating great outdoor spots - including a treehouse, sandbox, pool, fire pit, outdoor kitchen and grill, pond and gazebo. A highlight is all of the indoor and outdoor amenities/activities for kids. It took my 12 year old son (who is as addicted to screens as another boy this age) a full 24 hours to even inquire about whether I had brought his computer or iPhone. Rest assured that your kids will be kept engaged, which means that you and your friends will have unfettered time to reunite and catch up. Another highlight is the owner's attention to detail. In my inquiry letter I mentioned it was my birthday weekend and the 4 Kims wrote me a birthday card and a gift of chocolate was waiting for me when I arrived. Sybille was always available to answer questions. Hosts simply do not get more helpful than this. I give this little slice of heaven my strongest possible recommendation.

Owner's Response: Thank you for this glorious review, but the compliments go both ways, this guest was such a pleasure to engage with. While we strive to give all our guests an environment to "have unfettered time to reunite and catch up with each other", my heart just beams when guests tell me that once at Villa Ausblick their children forget their digital gadgets and rediscover how much fun it is to play and explore outside. That's why we love sharing this wonderful home with families!

Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

My entire family absolutely loved staying at Villa Ausblick. Everything was perfect from the picturesque views, pool, pond, numerous areas to hang as a big group, all the kids indoor/outdoor toys (especially the nets to catch and release salamanders, fish and frogs from the pond). So many great activities to do to mention, but have to say that Bolton Falls are a must do. So glad we stayed at Villa Ausblick!

Excellent location, beautiful property and views

  • 4 of 5

Excellent property, perfect for a large group. We especially enjoyed sitting outside under the gazebo for dinner and on the deck after dark to star gaze. Home is stocked with everything you'd need. Would definitely return.

Owner's Response: Experiencing the beautiful night sky is yet another benefit of Villa Ausblick's exclusive location without any light pollution. On a cloudless night you can discover known star constellations, the Milky Way, and shooting stars. It's totally worth installing a star gazing App for that!

Perfect home away from home for a family with young children

  • 5 of 5

We just spent the most wonderful week at Villa Ausblick! Our family reunion/vacation could only have been better if we stayed for a month instead of a week.

We were 7 adults + 3 young kids, the house was the perfect size for our brood. We slept comfortably, and had lots of space to relax together or find places to quietly read or appreciate the amazing views.

The Kims thought of everything a family could possibly need to live comfortably in a home away from home. The pool, pond, sandbox, fire pit, basement and toy filled playroom provided endless joy for the kids (and kids at heart.) The adults enjoyed the gourmet kitchen, outdoor kitchen, barbecue, two outdoor eating areas, and the many tranquil indoor and outdoor spaces.

The house was appointed with everything you can think of, from bath toys and toiletries to art supplies and board games. We loved the coffee, tea and maple syrup welcome basket! Whatever minor item we needed, it was available. These little touches meant a lot to us.

The surrounding area had so many great activities, we could easily have spent another week discovering things and revisiting places.

We enjoyed:

- a short hike and long dip in Moss Glen Falls

-swimming and boating at the Waterbury Reservoir

-biking the Burlington waterfront and swimming in Lake Champlain

-Drive in movie at Sunset Drive In on Colchester (unexpected and amazing old-school playground right in front of the screen!)

-incredible coffee from the big red barn of Vermont Artisan Coffee Roasters

-cider and doughnuts from Cold Hollow Cider

And much more!

Many thanks to the Kims for the best family vacation we've had in years.

Wonderful family ski trip

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at the house and can't say enough about the amazing time we had. The house is so cozy, warm, and inviting. We are a family of four and went with friends and their son and there was plenty of room. House is fully equip with everything you would need, including all things you would need for small children. There is a playroom full of games, puzzles, and even a play kitchen. The basement has a large screen TV, shuffle board, and other games. The hot tub was a nice addition as well. Very close to the highway, supermarket, and restaurants. We will definitely be back, we might even go in the summer to take advantage of the pool! Highly recommend the house!!

Owner's Response: And THIS is why we love what we are doing! Traveling with children, especially younger ones, is daunting. If we can make it possible that families come together and have a relaxing, memorable stay we smile with joy and pride :) Thank you so much for your wonderful review.
