The Montecito community is located in sunny Mountain View, a city in Silicon Valley most known for being the headquarters of Google. Google remains the largest employer in the city, and most of the population of Mountain View is made up of young professionals and families.
Mountain View was named because it has a beautiful view of the Santa Cruz mountains to the south. It is smaller than its neighboring cities of Sunnyvale, Santa Clara, and San Jose but is an extremely quaint and desirable place to live.
Parks & Amenities
Downtown Mountain View is an extremely popular area due to its numerous restaurants of varying cuisines. Along the famous Castro Street, you can find Chinese, Japanese, Italian, Thai, Greek, French, Indian, and many more fusion restaurants to satisfy all your unique tastes. Castro Street also contains the VTA Light Rail and Caltrain station just to the north for easy and convenient access to public transportation less than a block from your favorite eateries.
The largest park in the area is Shoreline Lake Park, which has a golf course, a restaurant, and a lake for recreational activities such as windsurfing, paddle-boarding, paddle-boating, canoeing, kayaking.
