Our home is a short 2 block walk to downtown Mountain View's Castro St with hundreds of restaurants of every nationality. You can't get much closer to downtown! We're also a short walk to the Steven's Creek Trail, as well as CalTrain (a Baby Bullet train stop to San Francisco and San Jose) and Light Rail. Close to highways CA85, US-101, CA237 and I-280 (although you can't see or hear any of them). Close to Google, LinkedIn, Facebook, Microsoft, Apple, and many other high-tech companies. Less than 6 miles to Stanford University and Stanford Hospital and less than 2 miles to El Camino Hospital.
Although close to so many things, this home is still on a very quite residential street. We know because we lived in this home for 6 years. If you're doing anything that may create excessive noise or any problems for the neighbors, we're confident this is not the listing for you. Thanks for understanding.
If you have any issues with check-in and check-out times or any special requests for your arrival, please just let us know. Some friends from the East Coast cannot start a day without Dunkin' Donuts coffee. Not just any coffee, it has to be their brand. Caf or decaf? Soy milk or half-n-half? If you have a request, just let us know and we'll do our best to accommodate you.
We look forward to hearing from you, and we hope you'll decide right now to at least reach out to us with an inquiry.
With the summer demand in downtown Mountain View, we usually rent this home to one Guest for the full 3 months of Jun/Jul/Aug. So PLEASE do not make a reservation request for that period for any shortern than 2 months. You can feel free to send us an inquiry and we can update you, but PLEASE do not send an actual reservation.
