About this listing
Bright room with double bed ideal for professionals wanting to avoid the impersonal, cookie-cutter hotel experience. Easy access to freeways/buses and 5 min drive to downtown Mountain View. Free on-street parking. Light breakfast may be requested.
The house is located in a quiet Mountain View neighborhood, next to a large park, which can bring a welcome respite from the craziness of Silicon Valley overdrive. The park’s public tennis courts, bocce ball court and walking paths provide an opportunity to work off some of the startup-day tensions. Drop-in yoga classes (for a fee) a block away can add a little balance to your life (yoga mat available for use). The Stevens Creek Trail for running, hiking, and biking is one mile away.
