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!!!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lisa and her friends were awesome - fun and full of life, and respectful and appreciative at the same time. We totally enjoyed getting to know them a bit, and we hope they return to Seattle in the future. Five stars all the way! Great people!

Best Host!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Roe and her parents were ideal guests - they were friendly, appreciative, and they left the space in immaculate condition. 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!

Beautiful Villa! Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 7 days in Seattle/Kirkland during Christmas, and could not be happier about our choice to stay at this gorgeous Tuscan Villa. We were traveling with our daughter and son-in-law to spend the holiday with our son and grands. There is more than enough room. The villa is huge, and is decorated elegantly. The location feels remote and private, but is close to everything. The view is panoramic, and affords one a spectacular sunrise over Mt. Ranier. The kitchen is spacious and well stocked with any tools you need to prepare meals, including cookbooks! The gardens are magical. We plan to return to see it in full bloom. Our grandson enjoyed coming over to play basketball on the hilltop court. Even though the owners live above the villa, you have complete privacy, unless you need something. Riley is a pefect host. He had a big smile on his face whenever we saw him, and is so very gracious. We had a perfect stay. We will be back.

Owner's Response: Alberto and his delightful family were the perfect guests - especially considering they were here for the holiday season. They were so engaging and full of life, from Alberto and his lovely wife to their grown children and young grandchildren. We enjoyed hearing their laughter as they played basketball on the sport court, and seeing them interacting with each other was good for the heart. Also, they left the space in immaculate condition. They were all awesome! Five stars all the way!
