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!

average rating of 4.969697 based on 33 reviews

This property was perfect for our family celebration for my youngest daughters college graduation.

  • 5 of 5

Although the property's owner stays in a travel trailer on the property's driveway we never saw him but knew he was there if anything came up. We enjoyed the fire pit, pool, BBQ and pool table. We played cards, ate lots and had a ball. We did use more gas and electricity than was allowed which came out of our deposit, but it was so worth it. It was easy for our village to do the cleaning requirements and laundering. We would definitely stay here again if our travels take us to Norco.

From the beginning the owner was very available to answer any questions we had. The home was clean/organized/ spacious and beds were comfortable. The kitchen was fully equiped and we would stay here again. Everything in the home was up to date and modern so much so that the owner came over and showed us how to work everything. I highly recommend folks staying here.
