Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Guillermo and his family were awesome and the Mod Urban Farmer was AMAZING - great layout, modern features, everything was very high quality. I imagine it felt like we were in a staying in an apartment from a Crate & Barrel magazine or something (I suppose, I've never really been to Crate & Barrel). We had one minor issue with the smoke detector going off, but Guillermo was really great helping us out and incredibly apologetic about the temporary annoyance. He even offered a reduced rate, which we said was not at all necessary because of how much we loved everything and how great the family was :). That said, we'll likely take him up on his offer to come visit again!

  • We were blown away by Guillermo and his family's hospitality! He made us feel welcome and at home from the moment we pulled up. He brought us fresh coffee and eggs from his backyard in the morning and even invited my six year old daughter out back to help feed the chickens. This was the highlight of our whole trip! The apartment is all newly done with top notch furniture and linens. It is just as clean and modern as the photos look. I cannot recommend this apartment enough and it is a great fit for families with small kids. The neighborhood is amazing too. Many quirky independent shops and delicious restaurants close by and everything is within walking distance. Thanks again Guillermo, Jody, and Marcos!

  • Guillermo was a great host! He was super communicative and I thought the place was incredible. The photos are beautiful, but they hardly do the outfitted basement space's craftsmanship justice.

    The backyard was gorgeous too! And he generously let myself and my puppy explore and enjoy it.

    The place was immaculate when we arrived and much bigger than I expected! Even the bedroom was awesome. I have a bad back and slept wonderfully here. I really hope Guillermo has us back the next time we come down to Portland!

  • Great place to stay. Very comfortable and the place has many amenities -- deep tub for a luxurious bath, plush bath robes and towels, and so much more small touches that just makes the stay comfortable. It's a mix of a plush hotel with the touches of home! I would stay again.

  • This was a beautifully designed place (as you can see from the photos). It was very clean and the hosts were welcoming and friendly, and totally (email hidden)e only thing I would let people know is that this is a basement that is reconverted, and is located under Guillermo's house. There were times at night we could hear footsteps and the washer/dryer running, so just be aware of that before your stay. Other than that, it was a sweet spot and my family and I were very comfortable!

  • This apartment is located in a great residential neighborhood close to restaurants (the famous Portland food trucks) and shops. The hosts were attentive and welcoming. My children enjoyed the raspberries from the backyard "farm", and the chickens, especially the shaggy feathered one, were amusing to watch. Everything was clean, the beds were very comfortable, and the kitchen was well furnished. Overall, we found our stay here wonderful.

    June 2014
  • Guillermo's place was amazing! We arrived to fresh eggs in the fridge and a clean, really nice and very new lower level apartment with every convenience. Located in a nice neighborhood of single family houses, it was convenient to lots of restaurants and an easy walk to beautiful Mt. Tabor Park. Guillermo was helpful, engaging, and wanted to make sure our stay was perfect. His kitchen, in particular, was wonderful. We could not have chosen better!

    June 2014
  • Excellent experience. Apt was just as described and communication was clear. I would gladly rent again and recommend it to friends. Thanks again!

    June 2014
  • We loved our (email hidden). Tabor apartment. The apartment is clean and beautiful. The kitchen is fully stocked with cooking supplies and spices/seasonings. We loved cooking breakfast with the fresh farm eggs and making post farmers market meals. The hosts were wonderful and had fantastic recommendations for local eateries.

I am a farmer, policy advisor and a dad. My wife works as a brand manager of sustainable seafood company - Fishpeople. We care deeply about growing good food and jobs - while making them accessible to everyone. We like drinking good beer and wine. We enjoy the simple pleasures of our dinner table and the large well thought out meals we share in the company of our son and our extended family of friends. Air BnB’s been a blast! It’s allowed us to share our communal spirit and our love for growing, through the hospitality of the garden and home we steward. We have been kindly hosted by Air BnBers on our travels, and are glad to have the opportunity to return this kindness to others.
