is located high above
Silicon Valley, but only fifteen minutes
from downtown San Jose. At the end of a country lane, it's rural yet convenient to
dozens of activities. Mystic Mountain
Hideaway is peaceful and quiet, a great
place to relax and unwind after a day of
business or touring.
2 bedrooms, sleeps
Our Hideaway is an ideal vacation rental
-- close to Silicon Valley points of
interest (see below). In an hour, or so,
you can be at a Pacific Ocean beach in
Santa Cruz or Monterey, or in San
Francisco for all the culture that city
has to offer. A little farther away is the
Napa valley wine country. Just over two
hours will get you to Sacramento, the
capitol of California and home to one of
the finest railroad
museums in the country.
Hideaway can also be your home-away-from-home for
extended business stays. We are convenient
to Silicon Valley companies in San Jose,
Santa Clara, Sunnyvale, Cupertino,
Mountain View, Milpitas, and Fremont.
For visiting nurses, we are close to
Regional (San Jose) Medical Center, Good
Samaritan, O'Connor, and Kaiser Hospitals.
Stanford is visible from our house, but it
takes about 35 minutes to get there.
