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!!!!!

Beautiful property with beautiful views
Loved this place that made us feel like we were in Italy. The house and the grounds are absolutely stunning. All the amenities we could want were there and the owners were so friendly and welcoming. We are already looking forward to coming back in the summer so we can enjoy the beautiful patio.
I read lots of reviews before choosing a place to stay in the Seattle area and this place met all of our expectations. Riley kept in touch to let us know when it was ready (we were in the area early) and greeted us on arrival! The property was bigger than I expected and was stocked with everything we needed to be comfortable. We enjoyed the views and plan to stay there again sometime when the weather is warmer. We stayed over Christmas and it was nice having the full kitchen to make a family dinner. The location is great and a very easy ride to everything in Seattle. We appreciate the hospitality!
It was a genuine pleasure hosting Tiffany, her husband Larry and their son Hunter. They were so polite and respectful, and they left the space in great shape. They are very nice, fun people, and we were blessed to have them stay here while they visited their older son, who lives and works in the area. They were five stars all the way! We hope to see them again!
The hosts are wonderful people and it is better then the pictures. Book it if it is open!
Our favorite VRBO EVER! The space and the hosts are both wonderful, very private and comfortable with amazing views. If it’s available rent it. We have already booked our time next year.
Tranquil getaway with all the comforts of home
My friend and I stayed here during a gals' weekend getaway. We thoroughly enjoyed our home away from home. Riley and his wife were gracious hosts who greeted us, showed us around and gave us recommendations for things to do while staying here. They were attentive and helpful without being intrusive. We particularly enjoyed our private garden overlooking Lake Washington, and spent time each evening relaxing and taking in the surroundings. We truly wanted for nothing and felt like we were staying with long-time friends. The beds are extremely comfortable, and the villa is well appointed with all of the essential items needed for cooking and grilling. This is truly a peaceful place to kick back and relax after a great day of sightseeing. Great location for those who want to explore beyond downtown Seattle. My friend has vowed to never stay in a hotel again, and we would both stay here again in a heartbeat. Thanks, Riley!!
Marlene and her friend were delightful guests - they were fun, funny and full of life. We loved talking with them and hearing about their Seattle area escapades, and they were very thoughtful, respectful and appreciative. They have both done a lot of traveling, so their compliments were especially meaningful. We rate them 5's across the board, and truly hope they visit us again. Thanks again ladies!
Nice stay with our family
Our family enjoyed our stay and look forward to staying again. The landscape and patios are amazing.
