What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Mountain View

I like being in Mountain View. All my medical care is here and I've been here since highschool. My neighborhood has a few decent restaurants and one bar. There is a Safeway 4 blocks South snd Costco 4 blocks north.

It's close to highways but still quiet and peaceful. There's a lot of diversity as well and nearby trails and walks

It is really but still close enough to stores that are easy to get to. There is a lake nearby where people fish, swim, and play in the water.

It is a senior mobile home park and residents care about one another. Favorite store, Safeway and other stores nearby. Frietnds

I like taking my dogs to the dog park. It's nice for them to get out and stretch their legs. I would like to see family friendly parks with lots of activities for the kids

I want to live in a place with good air and safety because it is better for my health and that of my family
