1br Apartment rental recommendations in Mountain View near google?

Nov 26, 2017 8 Comments

New to the Bay Area, about to move over in dec. Started looking and it seems there are quite a few apartment complex in Mountain View, ranging from $2k to $3k per month for 1 bedroom 1 bathroom apartments, but all have positive and negative reviews.

We are a couple and will be working at google and another company in Palo Alto. Hope to find a 1br apt below $2.5k. Any recommendations? Walking/Biking distance to google would be a huge plus :) having washer/dryer not shares would be awesome too (though it seems not the case for most of the mtv rentals with our budget)

    Avoid Madera Apartments. Price is smoking dope. Can hear everyone and the train never shuts up.

    Don't feel forced to live in mountain view. Save the money and keep your laundry by moving to a surrounding city. Cheaper rent just make sure you live next to a shuttle stop.

      Thanks! I’m a bit worried about to traffic though. If I live near a google shuttle stop in Sunnyvale, would the commute be bad due to the traffic?

    I doubt you can find anything with in-unit w/d for < 2.5k/month

      Been living here for a year, huge regret. Don’t buy their line that it’s “condo spec” and quiet — I can hear my upstairs neighbors walk. That said if you can get a top floor unit it’s fine albeit not in your price range.

    In 2.7-3k it's not that difficult to find a good 1B/1B in MV. Look for apartments in middle field, villa street, escuela etc.. San Antonio is also a good option.
