This stylish, colorful, and trendy loft comfortably hosts 1-3 people and comes with power blinds, nest thermostat, lights that change to any color you wish, and much more. It is situated in the best area of Toronto full of great places to go & see.

The Space

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.

AMENITIES: There is one bathroom (tub and shower), in-suite laundry, a dishwasher, HD LED TV, Espresso Maker, Hi-Speed WiFi, cable, Netflix, AppleTV, XBox + Kinect, and much more.

HIGH-TECH: The loft if almost fully functional from an iPad (provided) or iPhone (yours). You will be able to turn on/off all lights from bed, control the NEST temperature from anywhere in the loft, and control the 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. There is a stove, microwave, convection oven, kettle, teapot, blender, pots/pans, wok, rice cooker, slow cooker, grill, and more.

BATHROOM & LAUNDRY: Hair dryer, Iron, Ironing board, steamer, and cleaning supplies if needed. Bath linens and Toilet paper will be supplied.

LOCATION & ATTRACTIONS: The loft is also located steps away from public transit on the Queen Street Streetcar line that will take you right downtown in less than 15 minutes. Located seconds away from Queen street which has the best shopping in the city.

- 1-5 minute walk to the Drake Hotel, Gladstone Hotel, Beaver, Parts & Labour, Grand Electric, Stones Place, and dozens of amazing bars and restaurants
- 10 minute walk to Liberty Village (West Elm, Goodlife Fitness, Restaurants, etc)
- 4 minute walk to grocery store
- 20 second walk to liquor store
- 1 minute walk to beer store
- 15 minute walk to Roncesvalles village
- 4 minute walk to local parks
- 8 minute walk to the shops and restaurants on Dundas West
- 20 minute walk to High Park or 5 minute jog to the lakeshore (for those that like running near the waterfront)
- Tons of amazing shops, bars, clubs and really amazing trendy restaurants nearby both on Queen Street West and Dundas Street West.

I have a lot of my own (and friend's) random artwork on my walls. Please feel free to contribute and doodle on the chalk board art wall!

Pets are negotiable. Just ask!

Long term rentals are available if timing works out - just ask!

I look forward to hosting you :)

PS: Sometimes, when I am currently staying in my place, I will rent out the couch of my place. You can view that listing from my profile.

  • 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

    The loft is very quiet and close to all food shop /bar/ restaurant and the big plus is Only 20m from the street car station so when it s cold and snowing weather it was perfect
    I Really recommanded to stay here at kyle loft . In top of that the loft is nicely decorated with lot s of crazy amenities like the light système
    Only regret not being there in summer to Enjoy the bbq roof top

  • Super great place, location was perfect for us. Central hipster neighbourhood, close to great food, drinks, coffeeshops, fashion boutiques. Kyle was easily and readily accessible with any questions we had. His apartment was warm, cozy and clean. I'd definitely stay there again without hesitation. Thanks Kyle!

  • Kyle's place was awesome and so was Kyle! Great experience. Great location. Great communication!

  • I stayed at Kyle's loft for over a week and had a great time. The location is ideal. It was my first time in Toronto. Everything I could ask for was in walking distance. Great food, shops, galleries and bars. Kyle is a great guy and couldn't be more helpful. Anytime I needed a recommendation on what to do for the night all I had to do was send a quick text to him. The loft is comfortable and a cool place to hang out for the day if your not going out - great tv set up and kitchen is nice.

  • My mom came to Toronto for an extended holiday visit last December, and Kyle's amazing loft was around the corner from my house, so it was perfect in so many ways! She felt so at home there - Kyle provided luxe bedding, surround-sound television and cozy, beautiful lighting. All communication with Kyle was clear and easy: we feel very lucky to have made this connection, and can't wait to have my mom come visit next time!

    January 2013
  • We stayed at Kyle's for 12 days and it was perfect! The space is beautiful, bright, clean and well designed. And while it is on the cozy side it has absolutely everything you need. Kyle was so easy to communicate with, answers questions/requests right away, is super attentive to your needs -- and an all round lovely guy. This space has a great vibe and I'd stay there again in a heartbeat.

  • I stayed at Kyle's place for 4 days in September 2012. Kyle's friend Matt gave us a quick and helpful overview of the place and even helped us with our bags. The loft is gorgeous with exposed ductwork, high ceilings and nice wall art.

    The kitchen is well stocked with cookware and glassware. The bathroom is very clean. Laundry was convenient as it was in-suite. The bed was very comfortable. If you are planning on sleeping in, bring a sleeping mask because the windows let in tons of light! There is a great big couch to watch Netflix on and the surround sound is awesome.

    The loft is close to transit and there is lots to do in Parkdale. I recommend getting a poutine at the Stampede Bison Grill (1 minute walk from loft)!

  • I booked an out of town colleague in Kyle's unit. I asked him for a review and here's what he said: It was entirely excellent. Perfectly clean upon arrival with fresh towels (email hidden) of soap on the counter. Excellent stereo with surround sound and flat screen Netflix on demand. It'll be my first pick if I come back to Toronto.

    September 2012
  • Kylejoe's super cool little loft is a fun and welcoming space. It is in a really nice old building converted to lofts with a fantastic roof deck in a funky hood. Kykejoe and his friend matt take great care of you and the loft. Enjoy your stay.

About
I am a Music Programmer and Digital Producer in Toronto. Love travel, exploring, playing soccer, and meeting new people from around the world. 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. My home is my small little temple and personal canvas. I am always working on it, designing, updating and changing things, painting new doors and adding new colour here and there. I let colour and light be my main inspiration. 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!
