About Sibylle Kim
Sibylle Kim is the VILLA AUSBLICK Owner & Manager.
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.

Wonderful family ski trip
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!!
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.
Beautiful, welcoming, spectacular views!!!
We are on our way back to reality after spending a long weekend at Villa Ausblick with friends to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday. Everything was perfect! Thank you!!!
Thank you for coming! Villa Ausblick can be your reality anytime again ... there are always be more birthdays, anniversaries, big family reunions, girl-getaways!
We recently returned from a picture perfect holiday week at Villa Ausblick with our family. Yes, the subzero temps were a shock to our Florida family, but this beautiful spot provided a cozy respite for evenings around the fire, plenty of areas for the various age groups to hang out and a well equipped kitchen to prepare meals. The little ones loved the playroom conveniently located by the dining room, the older kids made good use of the foos ball table and TV downstairs and we all spent quality family time in the living room by the fire. The convenient location close to Waterbury and to Stowe provided plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities: ice skating in Waterbury, sledding in Stowe and an introduction to skiing at the Cochran Family ski area. Villa Ausblick has everything you need for a relaxing family vacation and Sibylle was a pleasure to work with.
Your very kind review is so appreciated. Yes, we know how frigid it was this Holiday season in Vermont (and all all over the North East corridor) having stayed at Villa Ausblick ourselves over Christmas. But this being the very first time ever we could celebrate XMAS at our vacation home with our own family plus my dad and brother's family visiting all the way from Germany was a miracle. Spending quality time with loved ones is what mattered... the weather was secondary.
Beautiful and quiet location
The home was just as described and was in a very private location overlooking the mountains. Sybille was a very organized host and answered all my questions in a timely manner.
Our family of 8 was very comfortable. The grandkids enjoyed the toys and outside area (though kids need to be closely watched near the sloping yard, pond and pool area.)
Would definitely love to return another time!!!
Thank you so much for your 5* review, especially coming from this guest, a long-time real estate owner/manager. We are honored if we could deliver an exceptional guest experience to a peer professional. And of course knowing that Villa Ausblick allowed this extended family to experience a memorable Thanksgiving together is special to us.
Beautiful house with unbelievable views
We were a group of 11: 5 adults, 5 kids (ages 6 through 12 years) and 1 toddler. This house was perfect for our group! There was plenty of areas for the kids to explore and entertain themselves. Lots of space for them to run around. They really enjoyed the pond, using it more than the pool! It was also great for the toddler - fully stocked with toys, a crib, and utensils for a toddler. The house was extremely kid friendly, but also extremely well appointed. The location is also fantastic: we hiked Camel's Hump, spent a day at Warren Falls, and Lake Champlain. We never made it to the Reservoir, but did drive through to look at it and it also seemed to have a lot of fun things to do - kayaking, paddleboarding, etc.
The owners have thought of almost everything and there are instructional videos if needed on appliances in the house! Highly recommend this house!
Many thanks for your kind words. We are so pleased about this review as this group was initially worried that Villa Ausblick's bedroom configurations would be tricky for their particular circumstances (4 individual sets of families). Thankfully they trusted our assurance that this home bedrooms are spacious enough to make it work.
Relaxing and rejuvenating
Great family retreat. Outstanding location overlooking tranquil mountain setting. Extremely well equipped with various leisure items both for adults and children indoor and outdoor. Kids and parents especially loved the play room with toys for the kids , and the sand box area outdoors. The water lilly pond, well stocked with salamanders and frogs was a big attraction for the children, albeit with strict supervision. Inside house was well appointed with comfortable and stylish furniture and large enough to afford everyone plenty of privacy. The large entertainement room downstairs was a real plus.
What was important to us , a family of 8 adults and 4 children , was a well stocked modern kitchen. We like to cook and we took advantage of the fresh local products to enjoy great meals daily as a group. For those who would rather not deal with that, there are many breweries and other eating establihments within 30 minutes of the house.
I would strongly recommend this property and the area.
Thank you very much for your wonderful review. We are pleased you found everything we worked so hard to provide for our guests enjoyable. It's sounds like you have had a 5* experience :-)
