A wonderful place. Stayed here with my wife and kids (ages 11 and 6). The house is well-organized, attractive, and well-provisioned with breakfast items. The kids loved the books and toys, as well as the pretty and attractive backyard. We made lemonade using lemons from the tree out back!
A great place to stay while visiting family here in Oakland and doing occasional trips into SF...
Would definitely stay here again.
Gorgeous house, fantastic views. The back garden is a bastion of tranquillity.
The place was perfect for our conference stay at Holy Names University. The house was extremely clean and prepared in any way we could wish for, instructions were clear. The neighborhood is nice and quiet, and the University and businesses on MacArthur Blvd are easily reached on foot. The cat was an occasional visitor and no burden at all to take care of. We'd come back any time. Thanks, Joanna!
Me and my family ( 6 people ) stayed at Chateau gato for 4 nights in end of july, and we fell in love with this place.
Especially the patio in the backside, were we started the day with breakfast, and ended it with a late cup of tea in the evenings.
Everything was as it was said to be, good information in the house for both accomondation and were to find shops etc..
Location perfect, minutes from the bus to bart to SF, quiet friendly area
I can highly reccomend this place,
Well worth the money...

The house is exactly as shows on pictures. Very clean, well maintained and certainly kids friendly. Beds are comfortable which I find really important since we were staying for a quite long time.
The backyard is pure indulgence. Cute garden where we harvested fruits and veggies. Two huge redwood trees gave shadow all day long and staying outside couldn't be more comfortable and enjoyable. I literally didn't want to leave.
The area and location were great too. SF is right across the bridge, many beautiful parks and landmarks within less than 40 min driving time.
Joanna left the most detailed instructions I have ever seen. She thought of everything.
We enjoyed our stay so much that my 6y.o son told me he would like to stay there forever. :)
Thank you Joanna!
We stayed at the Château Gato for the weekend. The classic feel and family vibe of the house and neighborhood was perfect for my visit with my two children ages 5 and 7. If you have children, the place is perfect for you. A lot of people on AirBnB advertise as kid friendly, but few live up to it as much as the Château.
The house is just right to make you feel at home. Not too fancy but far from shabby. Just right. All the normal amenities were available plus some nice extras.
Joanna was super easy to communicate with and very quick and responsive. A huge plus for me personally. Although we did not meet, I feel like we did. :) She went out of our way to make sure that we had everything we needed.
The "Gato" (kitty) was a bit shy but did make some appearances and warmed up to us a little. I loved having the family pet around to make us feel even more at home.
The house is very conveniently located close to a great community coffee house, and several restaurants. It is a quick jaunt to to beautiful and scenic Oakland hills.
Overall I am very satisfied with my stay. A great value and lots of character. Exactly why I use AirBnB. I would recommend this location to anyone, but especially families.
My family had a wonderful time - the location was very convenient and the house was perfect! Joanna was wonderful to work with! Highly recommended!
Chateau Gato was awesome. We had everything we needed, convenient location to SF, and of course the garden, deck, and huge kitchen were fantastic! Highly recommended, especially for kids. Thanks!
I'm so glad you had a good stay. We wish we could have met you in person. Thanks again for taking good care of our funny little cat, too!
Nice house with a very nice garden.
It´s wonderfull for children my daughters loved playing with the games.
We loved the view on the Sf bay.
We felt as our own home.
Merci beaucoup! I hope you all had a great time in the Bay Area. We missed meeting you in person, but we are glad that you were comfortable here. We really appreciate having such considerate guests.
We had great stay at Chateau Gato. The house was very clean and had everything we needed. It is perfect for families as there are great books and toys. The back garden is beautiful. I wish we had stayed longer as they allow guests to harvest the vegetables growing. It would have been nice to cook more and to generally relax in their comfortable home and garden. I would definitely return.
This is the kind of family that Our family REALLY likes having around :)
The boys were Delightful and so polite. They all 'fit in' beautifully with our property and treated it and their hosts with the kindness and respect we so appreciate! We truly hope they will return to visit us again and would heartily recommend Joanna, Andrew, Owen, and Benjamin to all other hosts!
Joanna and family were quick and busy guests, so not much time to interact, but were kind and adventurous. :-)
Joanna along with husband, Andrew, and their young sons, Owen and Benjamin, stayed at my place for two nights after camping in the heat of northern CA. The family spent a couple of days recovering and exploring the Newberry Caldera area before heading to the Oregon coast. It was a delight to have the company of a family with two such well-behaved boys! As guests, they were all friendly, appreciative, and gentle on the space. I would welcome them back and recommend them to other hosts!
Hey Joanna and family! You were so kind and wonderful!
I remember when my kids were small and how they were so excited about anything such as a tree or a hanging rope in the backyard.
Your family I believe fits the Airbnb model perfectly and good luck on your own listing.
Your kids were so nice.
Please come again!
Joanna and her husband were wonderful guests. So friendly, clean and courteous. They are welcome to stay with us anytime.
Joanna and her husband were perfect guests. They were friendly, clean, communicative and conscientious. We would recommend them to any airbnb hosts.
A wonderful family! We were a way point on a grand journey. These guys were great guests. Clean, quiet, courteous.
Joanna, Andrew, Owen and Ben stayed with us for 2 nights are were great guests. They were sincerely interested in our farmstay and the boys had no problem entertaining themselves with our animals. We were happy that they also took advantage of the beautiful sights to see around our valley. They are welcome back anytime!
Joanna and her family were great guest. Fun and easy to communicate with. They left the loft in amazing condition. I would love to have then back and would highly recommend them to anyone.
