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. I'm a very Pleasant easy to get Along easy going kind of guy.

I and have this home set up to entertain. Several guests have stated "it's the home that just keeps on giving."

I'm excited I can provide a home away from home for travelers who are tired of staying in hotels, where the pool closes, you share the grounds, pool/jacuzzi common areas with many, sometimes ...undesireable people, you pay for nightly parking and get charged extra for movies. You will not be dissapointed with this home, it should live up to any of your expectations.

This property was everything we could have wanted for our stay in California. We enjoyed all of the outdoor amenities. It was so beautiful that we barely used the indoor areas. We spent a lot of the time we had out in the gorgeous yard watching hummingbirds and our dogs play, they loved the outside space and the pool. Don was so welcoming and generous with his home, he helped make our stay more enjoyable. He is a gracious host, and he is available to assist with any concerns.

Thank you Don for sharing your home,


If we ever get out to the area again we will surely stay in this wonderful home.

Wonderful place for a family gathering

  • 5 of 5

Don's home is comfortable and inviting. It has something for everyone, from basking in the sun, swimming, or playing a game of pool. Don gave 100% to ensure my stay was the best it could be. He went above and beyond. He even offered to come over the morning of a family gathering to clean the pool (which he had already cleaned the day of my arrival). I would definitely stay in his home again and would highly recommend it to others.

You were the first to use the Lexus, thanks to you, I’m planning on offering the airport pick-up/ Drop-Off with the Lexus or for larger groups, the suburban, for responsible guests.

Great owner

  • 5 of 5

Greeted by the owner upon arrival from 8 hour drive. Beers and margaritas were on tap.

Complete operational walk through. Most of his systems are automated but he wanted to give the nuance. Palm trees are gone, but that's probably a good thing. Great place to stay overall.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure hosting my home for your family. I did have the palms removed, they were too big and making a mess of the pool and backyard. Thank you for choosing my home for your graduation event! You guys are welcome anytime!

Great stay with a very personal touch

  • 5 of 5

I got to say that Don earned all five stars without a doubt, from the fantastic house and it’s amenities such as a jacuzzi, pool and ping pong table ;). To the very personal interaction that not other house has ever provided me. You won’t be disappointed, this is definitely a place that I will come back to.

You guys and of course your great French bull dog are welcome anytime. I give you guys 10 out of 5 stars, not only because of being so nice, also how clean you left my home. It's family's like yours that encourages me to continue providing my home for your home away from home! Don kuskie
