This was the BEST Airbnb experience I've ever had. Kristin was incredibly helpful and welcoming - even leaving all kinds of snacks/groceries for us as we arrived at night. The place is just as pictured and super clean. The neighborhood has a ton of stores, restaurants, and fun places to explore. A streetcar stops half a block from the apartment and the neighborhood is super walkable. She was also very responsive and helpful when we had a minor hiccup with the washing machine. Loved this place and will be recommending it to family and friends when they come to visit Toronto. You will love it!
Amazing loft in a perfect location in Kensington Markets. It was like a home away from home. Easy to navigate check in and check out, was a pleasure to stay and would definitely return!
Kirstin is most pleasant to deal with, she is attentive, professional, considerate and friendly. Amazing loft; a hop, skip and jump to Kensington Markets and Chinatown. Public transport is near, it's a breeze commuting to and from this location. The loft is clean, modern, safe, quiet, stylish, quirky and cool. Kristin's place is like a mini museum in its own right. It's filled with colorful and cultural paintings, books and classy furniture that seamlessly blend vintage and contemporary. It has a fully equipped kitchen with quality cutlery, pots and pans. High speed free wifi and Netflix. Incredibly thought out and well designed building. Extremely comfortable bed. A pleasure staying there, will gladly return if it's available.
Great, clean, roomy place. Very modern and big bath. Check in and out was very easy and efficient. Would recommend and stay again.
Impeccably clean loft apartment in a great part of town. Getting to the place was easy and "checking in/out" was simple. Glad to have found this spot in Kensington Market to get to appreciate a fantastic little slice of the city. Very convenient to some great places. Looking forward to a return to Toronto - hopefully sooner than later.
My girlfriend and I spent 8 days in this absolutely wonderful loft, and if we visit Toronto again we'll look into staying there again! Such a well lit space in an eclectic area of the city - and with all the comforts of home. While we didn't meet Kristin in person, check-in and check-out were very straightforward - I'd definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting Toronto.
If you haven't been to Toronto, this is probably the best location you can get. The loft is beautiful and fully equipped. You get quiet inside, and lively nightlife just out the door. A great find!

About the Host, Kristin
I'm a curator and gallerist from Toronto. I love travel adventures, delicious food, creative spaces and natural wonders. I like staying in airbnbs because of the personable feel of having my own apartment and experiencing being part of a new neighbourhood. I often work remotely so internet is a must wherever I stay. As a traveler and a host, I appreciate the airbnb scene from both perspectives .
