Modern clean 3 bedroom (upstairs), 1 large living room (downstairs) 2 1⁄2 bath condo in downtown Mountain View, only one block from Castro Street.

You would of course have full access to all the common areas including kitchen, washer/dryer and the balcony. You will also have your own private designated parking spot in the enclosed parking garage just beneath the condo. There is also a secure bicycle cage.
30 second walk to Cal Train Station and Castro Street. Very near (website hidden), NASA, (website hidden) & Microsoft buses, etc. All the cafe's, restaurants, entertainment as well as other tech companies are right here.
If arriving by airport San Jose or San Francisco, there is pubic transport, taxi or Lyft/Uber.
What makes this place unique is that it is truly located in downtown Mountain View. Furthermore, this residence has secure parking for your vehicle or bike which makes access to downtown Mountain View a breeze.
This condo complex is next to the train tracks and so they do wize by and blow their horns. This might be a problem for some, others not.

Awesome room. Very clean, the bed was very comfortable and Jamie and his father are both very welcoming hosts. I highly recommend.
Jamie was a great host: friendly, welcoming, and ready to help. The apartment is as advertised: clean, large, comfortable, and truly in downtown Mountain View - steps away from the restaurants, coffeehouses, and entertainment. It was also a real pleasure to converse with Jamie's dad (who happened to be visiting). All in all, a great stay. Would come back anytime.
Jamie was an excellent host. Due to our work schedules we kept missing each other, but we did manage to have a couple of great conversations. He gave me an awesome virtual tour (via google maps/earth) of the Nasa location a few miles down the road. The place is right next to Castro street, which is a great street to take a walk and stop at some of the stores and restaurants. I'd recommend Jamie's place to any of my friends.
Great experience. The host Jamie is super nice and warm hearted. As I'm brand new to Mountain View, he gave me tons of useful info and suggestion. The room itself is very clean and sunny. The location is great: steps from downtown restaurants and public transportation. Definitely recommend!
Relaxed and very friendly host, superb location, very clean and spacious room/apartment in a secure complex with underground parking, nothing more I can ask for!
The place is great - completely new big rooms and a very nice and caring host. But the best is the central location - 1 min to Caltrain and 2 min to Red Rock Cafe...
As the train is so close you can hear it, but it's not a big deal.
