At the southeastern tip of Mountain View is a unique development named Cuernavaca. It is an enclave of luxurious homes offering spacious, tropical, resort-like living with Mediterranean-style designs, lush gardens, and palm trees. The residents take pride in the landscaping, which is maintained by a committee of resident volunteers. Other amenities that make Cuernavaca feel like a resort are its pool, two spas, a recreation room, a children’s play area, and two tennis courts. The development was built in the 1980s on over 30 acres and has 170 attached and detached homes ranging from 1,500 square feet to 2,500 square feet. In the midst of bustling Silicon Valley, Cuernavaca is an oasis, offering aesthetic charm as well as a soothing lifestyle. Outside Cuernavaca’s walls lie a grocery store, various restaurants, shops, small service-oriented businesses, and the Palo Alto Medical Foundation. Sections of this neighborhood can get a lot of noise from Highway 85, but the trade-off is proximity to a major commute route.
