A beautiful apartment available in a day

  • Riva Rentals did a great job in finding me a new home in Rotterdam. They showed me many places to choose from and understood exactly what I was looking for. Once I chose a place all the details were taken care of in a very professional and efficient manner. I would highly recommend Iris and her team to anyone looking for a home in Rotterdam.

  • I rented out my apartment via Riva Rentals. It was an absolute pleasure working with them. The whole team was very professional. They process of getting my apartment listed on their site, subsequent visits by prospective clients and handling of contract and other paperwork once the apartment was rented out was done very efficiently. At all times, their communications were clear and their advice spot on. I am sure that I will continue working with them in the future!

  • Verhuurmakelaar Riva Rentals heeft de verhuur van mijn appartement in Rotterdam op een vriendelijke, professionele en zeer snelle wijze begeleid. Binnen een aantal weken was alles rond met de expat en was mijn appartement verhuurd. In één woord: TOP!
    Raymond Tempelaars, Private owner
  • Last but not least the properties, I was shown, were all of good quality and well maintained and really well furnished, not just with the basics. They were actually houses that were looked after. The team even went an extra mile by assisting with utilities contracts, as I am new to the country…thus saving me the hassle to look for a starting point.
    Pavel Yovchev, APLL
  • The team at Riva rentals and the timely, yet detailed service provided was outstanding. I particularly liked that the agent showing me around was honest, direct and very friendly instead of acting as a sales guy trying to hook you up with the first seen property in the most blatant way. The girls which arranged the contract were an absolute pleasure to work with, and again response to emails or phone calls was like a Swiss watch, not having to wait hours or days to have an update on the house situation.
    Pavel Yovchev, APLL
  • Dear Riva, I WISH I had your contacts earlier in the year when I was looking for more apartments. You have been so helpful. :-)
