About Donald Kuskie

I'm a flooring contractor/ handiman/ Property manager. I have an identical twin brother, whom is not only my best friend but also my business partner, my wife (who is also a twin) is a nurse/manger PACU/ SAA units at St. Jude hospital in fullerton.

I purchased this home in May of 2000.

Donald Kuskie purchased this house in 2000

Why Donald Kuskie chose Riverside

When my wonderful mother Dorothy was living, she loved this home ( she was a real estate broker) Helped me to locate an purchase, and enjoyed many party's there! We love the openess of the surrouding area,Freeflowing floor plan, and the very tropical landscaping front and rear. lot's of horseback riders, gives you the feeling of the ole' west! This home is perfect for Family reunions, small weddings/receptions, birthdays, and business gatherings. We decorate for christmas and also set a tree up.

What makes this house unique

Just an awesome home to relax or have fun with your family or close friends.

The sport pool is 4' - 5' deep, great for pool vollyball or for the little one's that have a little trouble swimming.

All three of my Grand children have learned to swin here!

Gas BBQ and Smoker, great for Brisket, Tri-Tip, Salmon, Turkey, and of course Ribs!

Many recipe books in the kitchen with wine pairing!

All appliances in the kitchen are upgraded stainless steel also gourmet cooking utinsels and gagets!

The front porch swing is exceptional morning or evening, 8' umbrella with table in the back yard is wonderfull for pool side lunches or dinners and of course the large covered and lit patio gives you shade during the day, very cool twinkle lights at night and covers the Jacuzzi if it's raining out.

You can be soaking in the Jacuzzi with the 60' flat screen on in the family room watching your favorite movie or sporting event, or maybe just the music playing, the speakers are right above the Jacuzzi (100 disc cd player, Pandora, or ipod) the fire pit lit just 4' away, enjoying the ambiance with the many malibu/solor lights in this large very tropical back yard paradise.

You can just melt away with a glass of wine setting in the jacuzzi watching your favorite movie or sporting event while the custom granite fire/ice firepit is glowing just a few feet away!

My wife and I enjoy this aspect of our home the best!

Great Place. Would stay again.

  • 5 of 5

The owner is really good at getting back to you with any concerns or questions. Unfortunately it was cold when we were there so we did not use the pool or hot tub. The property is really nice. I felt completely at home. The pool table and dart board were really fun. The house is very spacious and the back yard is an entertainers paradise. We has two young children and it was so much better than staying in a hotel. I would definitely stay there again.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to host our daughter's university water polo team for dinner on their California tour in "our home" and we chose this home to represent that place (since we know the team won't be playing in Canada). We stayed for 5 nights (originally planned for 4 but we were lucky to add a fifth instead of going to a hotel) and we hosted the team and all of the families travelling to see team for a meal on our second evening in the house. We were able to cook for 50 and our buffet was served on the patio under the lanai. All of the families were amazed that this was not our own home because it seemed to have all we needed. (We rented a few tables and chairs for the yard and patio.) Then for the rest of the trip this was our base for travel to Claremont, Pomona, Redlands, Yorba Linda, and of course, Riverside. Thanks Donald and Debbie for providing such a great place for us to call home. We have one more spring break trip that our daughter and her team will be taking to this area in 2016 and we hope to be back in Riverside next spring.

exceeded by far our expectations

  • 5 of 5

Nice and quiet neighborhood, well localized for our needs of south California MX trip. Could reach most tracks in less that an hour.

After a race/practice day it was a plus relaxing in the Spa, and swiming pool.

The house is spacious and nicely decorated , with all appliances you can need. Plus extras like shampoo an kitchenware as well, not to mention the pool table in the living area.

The owner is very committed and helpful, making we fell very comfortable.

Our dream holiday

  • 5 of 5

This was our once in a lifetime dream holiday to California. We come from Belgium and stayed for four weeks. We had been planning this trip for a few years now, and were looking for the perfect accomodations. This property really has everything for the perfect, relaxing holiday. We immediately felt right at home, and the garden is even more awesome than the pictures. Don and Debbie are great hosts; Don makes a fabulous margarita. We really, really hope to come back again one day, maybe within a few years.

Greetings from Belgium!
