About us

Vision & mission

As housing market leader of expatriate housing in Rotterdam, we built a strong brand with a durable and high-quality portfolio of properties. Our goal is to give both landlords and expatriates a total piece of mind during the rental process. The combination of a highly trained team and the right application of innovative technology should provide for the perfect customer experience. Our rental agents are knowledgeable, energetic, and highly committed. We know the inventory inside out and work with the best landlords and other agencies in the city.

Riva is a genuine Rotterdam company. We got mad love for our city and we want to show our international clientele why Rotterdam is becoming more popular everyday. On our blog you'll find guides to explore Rotterdam, tips about Dutch rules and everyday life of the locals.

What our customers say about us

I recenlty moved to Rotterdam with my wife. Contacted Rivarentals and the team quickly helped us finding the right place to stay. They have a vast selection of apartments and they were very accomodative in organizing visits. Professional in coordinating communication with the landlord and efficient in setting up the contract and utilies. If you are looking for a spot in Rotterdam i highly reccomend to get in touch with them. Thanks Simone and Rivarentals team!
