About the Property

3 bedroom, 2 bathroom Historic Downtown Mountain View Home

You can stay in a home listed on the MV Register of Historic Homes and part of the published Historical Homes of Mountain View Walking Tour. Originally built by James Campbell for his wife and ten children. Yes, that's 10!
3 bedroom, 2 bath, 1,100 sq ft (102 sq meters).
Main bedroom has a Queen size bed, windows on two sides, and a ceiling fan.
Second bedroom has a Single over Queen bunk bed, a large closet, and ceiling fan.
Third bedroom has a Single over Full bunk bed set with a Single pull-out trundle (so one Full bed and two Singles) and a ceiling fan.
So a total of 6 beds (2 Queens, 1 Full, and 3 Singles).
Although the house is historic, the large Kitchen was completely remodeled in 2000 so all appliances are modern.
Living Room has a flat screen TV with full Movie and Sports package, and ceiling fan.
Family room is right off the kitchen and also has an HD flat screen TV with full cable package.
Both bathrooms remodeled in 2005 keeping the old feel of the home including the claw foot tub from the 1920's.
There is wireless internet access and cable TV with Sports Package.

Backyard has grass, a brick patio, trees and a beautiful grape vine growing up the garage.

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 becuase 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.

-Anne and Mike

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Anne and Mike have been a couple since meeting at the University of Michigan in 1986. We love to travel and have lived in France, Japan, and China. We also had the pleasure of taking 18 months to travel the world in 1998 and 1999, visiting 15+ countries on a very low budget. We settled in beautiful Mountain View, CA in 2000 and have two active boys (9 and 11 years old). We have rented people's places on some of our world travels and our goal is always to leave the house just as we found it.

Why the Owner Chose Old Mountain View, Mountain View, CA, USA:
This is the first home that we ever purchased. We fell in love with downtown Mountain View and can't see ourselves living anywhere else.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love the historic charm of this home. It's neat to see people standing outside looking at our home with the 'Historic Homes of Mountain View Walking Tour' booklet in hand.
