About Riley Watson

We are professionals who have lived in the Seattle area most of our lives. We love to share the villa and surrounding areas with family, friends, and guests from around the world. Riley designed and built our home in 1980 and takes great pride in the architecture, the views, and the ambiance we have created. We continually are on site, enjoying making the grounds even more beautiful for everyone to enjoy.We have traveled to Italy for inspiration here at the villa. We practice LA DOLCE VITA daily!!!

Riley Watson purchased this Villa in 1980

Why Riley Watson chose Inglewood-Finn Hill

Because the views are SENSATIONAL!!!!! The hillside lots offered the opportunity to build a view home with unique gardens and enough room for a pickleball court. The drive up the hill reminded me of Sausilito and the Italian Amalfi Coast. The villa is in Kirkland, Washington, rated #5 Most Liveable City by Money Magazine. Our hillside and home are featured on the article's cover photo.

What makes this Villa unique

Originally built as a New York Contemporary, Riley has entirely converted the interior and exterior to Tuscan. We are 100% committed to living the Italian lifestyle. Come share it with us!!!! Summer allows us to hang sheets on the line, grow tomatoes, pomegranates, & grapes, smell the lavender and roses, and sip vino as we relax and enjoy the VIEWS!!!!!

                                                              Nice stay with our family

                                                              Our family enjoyed our stay and look forward to staying again. The landscape and patios are amazing.

                                                              We enjoyed our stay!

                                                              Riley was very helpful in getting us settled and orientated to the property. To have a full kitchen, laundry, and comfortable living space was very much appreciated. We were there in the winter but the landscaping looks amazing. I would recommend this property because of the fantastic view and location. The road is a little steep so be careful. It will be worth the drive. Sandy

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              Sandy and her sister were delightful guests whom we enjoyed hosting. They were in the Seattle area for family fun, and they in turn were fun to be around. They were very respectful of everything and left the space in excellent condition. They were 5 stars all the way, and we hope to see them again in the future! Riley

                                                              A wonderful retreat for 3 sisters during a busy Christmas season

                                                              Maren J.

                                                              We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely, spotless, comfortable and roomy villa. We were surprised that there were several steps to go down to get into the unit, but they were very sturdy stone steps, shallow in their rise and nice and wide with a good railing for our older sister to use. The winding road to get up the hill to the home was a little intimidating the first time we drove it in the dark, but we got used to it and the magnificent view that resulted from the climb was well worth the effort. As previously mentioned, the beds and all the furniture were VERY comfortable; the kitchen was stocked with everything we could think of and more with high quality flatware, dishes and glassware; there was plenty of storage and closet space in each room; the den could easily accommodate the twin inflatable bed on it's sturdy stand so each of us had our own space; the bathroom had loads of counter space, drawers and a cabinet for storage for 3 women. Riley is the consummate host -- happy, helpful, available and more. He carried all our luggage down the stairs when we arrived and brought it back up early in the morning when we left for the airport. We felt cared for but private; isolated but near everything we needed and more; and we would love to return sometime in the future.

                                                              Maren and her sisters were really fun to have around! They were very appreciative of everything and left the space in great shape. They were fabulous guests, as they were a happy, fun loving bunch, and we hope to see them again in the future. They were five stars all the way!

                                                              Best Host!

                                                              Beyond having a beautiful property and an amazing view, Riley and his wife really made our stay special. They were attentive, friendly, and beyond accommodating. Highly recommended and I hope to stay with them again!

                                                              We stayed at the villa for three nights. We had a great time there. The kitchen was nicely equipped with everything we needed w our stay.

                                                              The rooms were comfortable and the views were breath taking from the patio, living room, and bedroom. You could see Mt. Rainer from the villa.

                                                              Outdoor patio was nice and there was a small bbq pit out there, which we took advantage of. They also had a washer and dryer which was convenient! There's even wifi.

                                                              Riley the host was very friendly and welcoming. He was very attentive of our needs.

                                                              The only con, is a little remote from down town Seattle. Driving time is approximately 20 minutes. But if you're looking for a nice retreat, this is it. Well definitely stay here again next time were in town.

We loved interacting with them, and they left as friends. We hope to see them again in the future, as they are all delightful people. They are five stars all the way!

                                                              Terrific get-away
