Ken and Mary
Ken and I are always on the go! We have another home in San Francisco in the Castro and spend time at both places. We are both in high tech, have 4 beautiful children and a granddaughter.
Mary Nicknish purchased this house in 2010
We love Silicon Valley. We are close to restaurants, hiking, biking, San Francisco (45 minutes north), Stanford (15 minutes North), many high tech companies, and the beach (45 minutes south)
We love our home because of the beautiful landscaped back yard and because it is so quaint and comfortable!
Our party of three adults and two young children stayed here for four days in October, and it was delightful. The house is cozy, clean, and has all the linens, kitchen supplies and other things you need for a comfortable stay. Mary and Ken were also kind enough to leave us a high-chair and pack n' play for the baby. The backyard is beautiful and well-taken care of, and the kids couldn't get enough of the swing set. We had several other families over one afternoon and the backyard was the perfect place to host. It was an easy drive from SFO, and supermarkets and other conveniences are close by. I highly recommend this house to anyone, especially those with young children.
We really enjoyed staying in this lovely home. There were two families with young children in our party and the floor plan worked out perfectly for one family to stay in the master/ ensuite and for the other family to have some privacy with the other two rooms / bath closed off on the other side of the house, especially at bed time and in the mornings! They provided a pack and play and high chair so we did not have to lug any extra baby gear on our trip which was such a big help.
The yard is as beautiful as it looks in the photos and we could barely keep the kids out of the yard the whole stay (they *loved* the swing set!) which basically doubled the living space. Mary was very accessible whenever we needed something and was so sweet in picking up milk for our kids before meeting us at the house! There were also goodies at the house for us to snack on when we arrived.
I would absolutely recommend this property - it was a well-maintained home in a quiet neighborhood and Mary/Ken made us feel very comfortable with our young children stay there.
We were in Palo Alto for a very intensive week of work. This Mountain View home was a perfect place to stay. Breakfasts in the back yard were delightful. The house is clean, well appointed and comfortable. Thank you, Mary!
We arrived directly from overseas and the house was the perfect place to spend a weekend with two toddlers adjusting to jet lag with parks nearby, great backyard and swing set, and a nice kitchen to prepare meals and snacks at all hours.
Everything we had hoped for!
We just stayed at Ken and Mary’s house and had an excellent experience -- I would highly recommend staying here. Their cozy home is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath house one block from El Camino, near Shoreline Blvd.
Nearby are all the conveniences -- grocery store, drug store, restaurants, and easy access to Highways 85, 237 and 101.
Ken and Mary are lovely hosts - they provided a gift basket with wine, gourmet cheese and sausage, and there were fresh flowers and plenty of towels in all 3 bedrooms. They have Direct TV, wireless internet, a gourmet kitchen with granite countertops, gas stove and everything you need to prepare a home-cooked meal.
In the large backyard, there is a barbecue grill and a table for seven which we enjoyed using.
I hope we will get a chance to return and stay here again.
Mountain View is in the heart of Silicon Valley. Our home is in a beautiful quiet neighborhood with great neighbors. We are walking distance to hundreds of restaurants! If you enjoy a good Pilates class, you can find one right next door!
