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!
Had a wonderful week! Loved that beautiful garden, where we spent most of our time. Owners were easy to book with, everything as advertised. Would definitely stay again!
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.
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.
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.
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!
