Google allows for a "personal use" free license. If you are using the API to provide an address and you are not making any money from that address or use of the API as a service, it seems within their guidelines. I am not an attorney so you may want to seek legal advice if you have concerns.

9.1.1 (a)
Your Maps API Implementation must be generally accessible to users without charge and must not require a fee-based subscription or other fee-based restricted access. This rule applies to Your Content and any other content in your Maps API Implementation, whether Your Content or the other content is in existence now or is added later.

From what I know a whole bunch of companies do so with no problems at all.
It is logical that google doesn't mind that ,as a matter of fact public is the purpose of google maps.
They let you embed their map in your site ,they provide functionality for that ,so the way I see it ,it is perfectly legal.

Besides they do not have any paid service to display an address on a map!
Any way you can be absolutely sure by sending them  an email and asking their permission for that.
