About Mary Nicknish

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

Why Mary Nicknish chose California

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)

What makes this house unique

We love our home because of the beautiful landscaped back yard and because it is so quaint and comfortable!

Great place to stay in Mountain View

  • 5 of 5

This is a nice, well equipped house in a cute neighborhood in Mountain View. Close to grocery stores as well as walking distance to a park and downtown Mountain View, this house has 3 bedrooms and a nice kitchen, washer and dryer, backyard and outdoor grill. The owner is very responsive and friendly. I highly recommend this house!

Great place in MTV!

  • 5 of 5

Such a cute place. Stayed here with my fiancé and a few of our friends for a wedding and had a great time! It's walkable from downtown Mountain View so we were easily able to walk to restaurants, bars, the farmers market and coffee shop. Such a great time! Would definitely go back again.

Worked out perfectly for us!

  • 4 of 5

We came to the Mountain View/Palo Alto area for our son's Stanford wedding. We had our daughter, son-in-law, and 3 month old granddaughter with us. The house fit our needs perfectly. The back yard is lovely and nicely shaded with a fun play structure for children and a outdoor table with seating for eight. It's a nice walk into the downtown Mountain View area (Castro St.) and the Stevens Creek Trail. The Caltrain Station is just a little over a mile from the house. This would also be a great place for a girls getaway. We very much enjoyed our stay.

CHARMING and CONVENIENT Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 days in this charming home. Our family of 4 adults and 2 teenagers were visiting our son at Stanford. The house was clean, had a darling kitchen(with all the supplies and utensils needed for a gourmet cook), nice living room with great flat screen and surround sound music. The backyard was fantastic for inviting friends over and evening dinners. Mary surprised us with a bottle of wine, crackers and salami upon our arrival. The location was superb: Castro St. restaurants, Whole Foods, Trader Joes... Can't wait to visit again!

We stayed in the home for a week with our two children ages 10 and 15. We really felt comfortable and enjoyed our stay. The keypad entry was straightforward and never gave trouble. The beds were comfortable and the house itself seemed really clean. (I always do a walk through for cleanliness before I let my kids start unpacking and it passed inspection) They have lots of dishes and cutlery in this house which means you don't have to run the dishwasher daily like in rentals where they only give 6 to 8 each of plates, cups, spoons. The washer and dryer are so nice. Our kids enjoyed reading books off the shelves and they have tons of movies for all ages which we, unfortunately, never took time to watch. The yard is very beautiful and the street is quiet (we only heard the birds). We enjoyed several family basketball games in the driveway. The only thing that bothered us a bit was the dozens of family photos that are everywhere. I tried not to look at them because it made me feel a little like we had broken into someone's home :) I understand that it would be time consuming to remove those things. The owner was very prompt to respond every time we made contact. We would definitely recommend this house and would try to book it again if we returned to the area.
