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 nice guy and have this home set up to entertain, several guests have said "it's the home that just keeps on giving."

I'm resently divorced and starting the next chapter in life. 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 ,and jacuzzi with lots of... sometimes ...undesireable people. You will not be dissapointed with this home, it will not fail to live it to your expectations.

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!

We came for my daughter's graduation at University of Redlands with a multigenerational crew. There was room for everyone and so much to do at the house we didn't want to go anywhere. Loved the pool with the volleyball net, in-ground hot tub, outdoor firepit, pool table and luxury linens. TV in every room! The house is situated at the top of the street with an amazing hill behind it so you feel completely private in the fabulous patio/ backyard area. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Riverside Vacation Rental

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with my mom for a couple of days mid April. When we arrived we were able to meet Don in person, he is very nice and accommodating. He showed us around and explained how things worked around the house. He did warn us, but careful of the tricky step, it'll get ya. The house was clean, located in a good neighborhood. It was only a couple miles away from places to eat, like the Spaghetti factory and Cheesecake factory. I would stay here again.

Excellent accommodations and a great host!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this house with a large group. My parents, my aunt and uncle, and my husband and our 2 toddler children stayed at this house for 5 nights. The host, Don, is amazing and it truly felt like family by the time we had exchanged emails had met in person. Wonderful guy. The house was perfect, as my children played in the pool all day and the adults could sit in the hot tub at night. Everyone had their own "space" so we didn't ever feel like we were on top of each other. We were very close to everything as well, including Disneyland. Great location. Cant wait to go back. Would highly recommend this property!

Great place for our family. vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Don is very nice and helpful, and ee had a great time here. The house is very comfortable, the kitchen well equipped, but the best part is out back. Pool, hot tub, BBQ grill and a smoker. We really enjoyed the every afternoon breeze. The landscaping is great, and we enjoyed guacamole made with avacados from the tree out back. Highly recommended!
