About this listing
This stylish, colorful, & trendy loft comfortably hosts 1-3 ppl. & comes w/ blackout powered blinds, smart locks, hue lights, AppleTV, Netflix, Xbox, + tons more. Located in the best area of Toronto full of amazing restaurants, shops, & nightlife.
My bright and colorful 1 bedroom open concept loft is located in the best area of the city, right in the heart of the very popular, super hip and exciting Queen West neighbourhood. Steps from the best bars, amazing restaurants, cafes, shops, liquor store and parks, yet situated half a block from Queen on side street so it's nice and quiet.
DESIGN: The Loft is open concept design with super wide dark hardwood floors, exposed wood beams, exposed bricks and duct work as well as a skylight and super tall 17-feet ceilings that make it feel bright and open. Sound also does not travel between neighbouring units so it's very quiet and peaceful.

You will be able to turn on/off all lights, lock/unlock the door, control the NEST temperature from anywhere in the loft, and control the blackout power blinds for all the windows, including the skylight if you prefer to sleep in complete darkness. You can also create colorful and creative lighting patterns with all of my lights as they are all part of the Phillips Hue family of digital lights. Each light can be changed to any colour that you wish, at any brightness or intensity you desire. I have many lighting theme presets created for all desires like movie watching, reading, waking up, relaxing or having drinks for example.
BEDROOM: Incredibly comfy Euro Top Deluxe Queen bed that sleeps 2, and one really great large comfy couch (sleeps 1 very comfortably and 2 easily). I will provide linens for both the bed and couch, if needed.
ROOFTOP: There is a gorgeous rooftop patio with a BBQ where you can have dinner or relax under the sun.
GYM: I have my own little personal gym (bowflex weight system), chin up bar, yoga mat and exercise ball if you wish to work out at my place. I also have work out videos and games for the X-Box that you can use for inspiration and (website hidden): The kitchen has everything you should ever need if you wish to cook in the Loft.

Great apartment in a great neighborhood. Comfortable, chic, and so much cool home-automation technology! Kyle was great with check-in and check out was a breeze. A+
I really enjoyed my stay in Kyle Joe's loft. It is very neat, clean, organized, fun and high-tech all at the same time. The Building and the apartment are very quite, even though they are steps away from a busy and fun part of Queen St. The loft is located close to a wide selection of hip-artsy bars and restaurants... I loved a hidden away 'food industry' bar/restaurant called Food and Liquor. Some of the best food in Toronto. If you want an Artsy-Cool hanging out loft - this may be your place. Kyle was an excellent host - totally accessible.
Kyles loft is very awesome. Our stay there was well planned and super comfortable. The loft is very well organized while also being equipped with pretty much everything someone would need to have a stay. The lighting and entertainment setup up is executed flawlessly, from the colored lighting to the surround system. The quiet building combined with the blackout shades, made it so much more easier for us to rest without being disturbed one bit. That being said, the neighbours are also super pleasent and helpful. His is in such a great location, making it so easy to explore downtown Toronto effortlessly. You're bound to do a bit of shopping because the stores around the area are so nice. But what ties this all together is that Kyle is such a great host, he is truly a caring, understanding & awesome person! He is always quick to respond incase you need any help, which is super appreciated. I highly recommend this place! Whether you're on a quck trip or a long holiday, im sure anyone will find comfort in this loft! I will definitely be staying there again! Thanks for such a great experince Kyle! :-)
Kyle’s loft is one of the best place for me in Toronto. The loft is incredibly awesome, designed, stylish and comfortable for staying. I was really surprised how comfortable was my staying in the loft apartment because Kyle has arranged everything in loft very smart. I felt myself very cozy like at sweet home. Also there is the super great location (Queen West Downtown), a lot of creative cafes, bars, restaurants and shops and very close to Kyle’s place.
But the maing thing for me is KYLE. I have never met such cool person: He arranged the stay in his loft perfectly. Before the check in he made me in advance the detail information about the loft by skype. What I came to the loft I found the booklet with all detail instructions.
I recomend without any douts stay in his place as we will enjoy on 100% the staying in Toronto!
Kyle was fantastic and the place is wonderful. You could not be in a better area to check out and experience the best of the city! It was great to explore and have such a cool, comfy place to come back to at the end of the day!
Kyle's place is perfect. Excellent convenient location, easy to walk to shops of all sorts, great restaurants, bars, coffee shops, and the like, all while being exquisitely quiet. Some loft conversions have lots of noise transmission between units but his place isn't like that. we didn't hear a peep from a neighbor. very easy to make one's self at home thanks to his having every amenity, including a sodastream, a huge plus for us. not only was it well-appointed and comfortable in every way w a great hot shower, but it's also loads of fun--I was transfixed by the electric blinds, and it was easy to stream music and TV from our phones to his system. Fast wireless connection made it easy for us to get thru to the office when necessary.
that said, the best part about kyle's place is kyle. we've never had such a seamless and seriously easy check-in and check-out. he's so on the money w his recommendations that it feels like a mobile concierge service. I will definitely try to stay at kyle's the next time I come to toronto.
Kyle is the perfect host

I am a small town guy living who moved to the big city to start a career in television and media. I am a huge music, design, and fashion fan and am always looking for cool new things. I try to be a trendsetter in my life and work and like keeping up with the latest gadgets and goodies.

I am a big fan of Europe and try to go there as often as possible. I would like to find creative and friendly people to stay in my Loft when I travel for work or pleasure. I am also open to longer term rentals whenever possible.
I am a very attentive host and also rent from AirBnB so I know what it takes to have a great rental experience. I will do whatever I can to make your stay with me as pleasant and fun as possible, so please don't hesitate to ask for anything you need.
Look forward to meeting you!
