About Sibylle Kim

Sibylle Kim is the VILLA AUSBLICK Owner & Manager.

Sibylle Kim purchased this estate 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 estate 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.

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

From the time of booking through checkout this was an amazing experience. No detail left out, no surprises except that the view was more lovely than we could have imagined. The pictures are right on point.

We were 4 couples and 3 children gathering for a birthday weekend and the house was perfect. Hot tub, movie nights, skiing, cooking, enjoying the fire, it was wonderful. The house is very clean and extremely well stocked - including the kitchen. Truly nothing was left out and we all wished we could stay longer.

Our host went many extra steps including perfect birthday presents for our guests of honor. I highly recommend booking this property!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your extremely kind review! When speaking with prospect guest before they book we always try to glean if there is a special occasion that brings family and/or friends together. And sometimes we are lucky and can welcome these visitors with a little surprise... in addition to "the view that was more lovely than we could have imagined."

Beautiful and quiet location

  • 5 of 5

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!!!

Owner's Response: 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

  • 5 of 5

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!

Owner's Response: 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

  • 4 of 5

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.

Beautiful home. More than enough space for people to sleep. Impeccable furniture. Soft beds. Tons of games, board games, shuffle board, foozeball, darts. Hot tub is easy to use. FULLY STOCKED kitchen. Was just a lovely place to stay.

Great Location, Family-Friendly!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our 3 young kids stayed at Villa Ausblick with my sister and brother-in-law and their kids during peak foliage weekend in Waterbury. The house was better than expected-- the views from the back deck were spectacular! The yard, with tree house and large natural rock formation, provided non-stop-fun for the kids. The house is set back from the road with a long paved driveway, so we never had to worry about the kids on their bikes or scooters.

You can get to downtown Waterbury in less than 10 minutes. We hiked every day (we recommend Mt. Philo for all ages) and did a portion of the Long Trail.

I accidentally left my bag at the house, but the owner went out of her way to find a way to return it me in the Boston area.

We can't wait to go back!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice review! Yes, occasionally we do have Lost & Found items. Mostly they don't get claimed and we donate usable items to a local thrift store. In this case - a forgotten luggage - we got creative. One simple post on the online community board, and I got 5 different volunteers offering to take this luggage along for a drive from Waterbury, VT to Boston. Within days this guest had her belongings returned thanks to the kindness of complete strangers.
