I live in the Creston neighborhood. The pros are that you are close to everything. You'll get on and off 280, 85, 87, 880, 237, 101, etc very quickly. It is a nice neighborhood. You are near the market at Homestead and Foothill Exp, San Antonio Trail. Schools for the kids are also good as already mentioned by others. For the cons, depending on where in Creston you will leave, the traffic noise maybe a major problem. The noise primarily comes from 280, and Foothill Exp. Also, Los Altos is a town without major developments. The downtown is almost shut down after 6 pm. There are tiny parks here and there, but no community swimming pool and weakly funded library. it is too private family-oriented community with occasional out door live music/arts/wine festivals, animal parade, Halloween parade, Christmas celebration. Most of these activities take place at day time (morning or afternoon), except Christmas parade will be at night. Everything in Los Altos seems to cost a bit more, including gas, food and services. It is probably due to high real estate rental prices. But it is a nice, safe, relaxing place. What bothers me about this Los Altos is that every single detached family home here costs at least $1 million, however, social amenities are very few. It just doesn't look like million dollars neighborhood. I guess that the large lot size of each house determines the real estate home prices here, and home owners here don't like new social projects/developments.
