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.

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.

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.

Winter wonderland!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: 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

  • 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.
