RE: Best place to locate in the SF/SanJose area for techie & artist couple
I would recommend Mountain View. Close to Whole Foods/Trader Joes etc kinda things. There are many town homes/condo etc like communities that are close to CalTrain. Decent downtown plus you are a throw away from Palo Alto University Avenue. If you want BART you have to go to Fremont (other side of Bay) then you will have to cross bay daily to go to Oracle etc. Sunnyvale is not bad but it is probably one notch below Mtn View. Campbell is not bad but Caltrain is not close. If you are interested in Victorian kinda architecture then Willow Glen close to Campbell is good. You probably will have to buy/rent house since that is not a condo kinda area.
There is a recent development called Santana Row with shops, restaurants (880 & stevens creek). That is my personal favourite since appts/condos are above these shops. If I did not care for house, I would live there. But it is not that close to Caltrain...
