My boyfriend and I are young professionals. We live in Toronto in a loft that we have renovated. We have respect for people and the space around us. Thanks,

Great place to stay. Clean, spacious, airy, and fully equipped. Much better than a hotel stay. Convenient to coffee shops, restaurants, shopping, groceries, and transportation. Most important for us, close to family. Queen Street West is always busy but the apartment was very quiet. Bonus was having deck at the back, great to relax on after a busy day. Emma was an excellent host, easy to contact and kept in touch.
We stayed in Emma's lovely Queen West Loft while visiting Toronto to cover the annual film festival. The apartment was in a perfect location - close enough to the festival to be able to walk or, if we were feeling lazy, then the street car was just across the road - but far enough away for us to feel that we were escaping at the end of the day. The apartment itself is in a great location with lots of cafes and restaurants right outside the door. We especially liked Teroni for dinner and their bakery Sud for croissants in the morning. It was also great to have Loblaw's- a really top notch supermarket at walking distance for provisions. It meant that we were able to use Emma's well equipped kitchen on numerous occasions when we didn't feel like going out. The late Toronto summer weather meant that we were even able to barbecue on the deck one evening. It felt as though we were really were on holiday in Toronto - even though we were working. The apartment itself, felt like a home from home. It was a welcoming space, not super trendy or, strictly speaking, five star. It is rather someone's very loved home to which you felt you had been especially invited and one of the nicest things was Emma's completely lack of pettiness about sharing. The kitchen cupboards have all the basic foodstuffs - oil, sugar, flour and so on - with messages everywhere that guests should help themelves to whatever is there - an extremely nice touch, as were the bathroom provisions - soap, toothpaste, cotton wool etc, again with the note, 'In case you forgot to bring your own'. The flat was clean, spacious and quiet ( despite being on a main road) and Emma was always a quick to respond to any queries. She even emailed when it rained to let me know there were umbrellas in the wardrobe. Extemely generously, she also allowed us to keep the apartment until the evening when we were returning to England as we had a late flight out of Toronto. Very much appreciated by us. All in all, a great stay. Thanks very much.
Emma and her husband are the nicest people ever. If you have a question, they have the answer. If you have a problem, they have the solution. Always available , always ready to help . Their place makes you feel at home. Everything is very well organized and detailed. The apartment is beautiful, large and very tastefuly decorated. The terrace is clearly a big plus. As for location, it's perfect: close to all the cool restaurants and fashion/trendy spots in Toronto. I highly recommend this place. If you are going to Toronto, you need to consider this apartment!
We didn't rent Emma's place for ourselves, but rather for a colleague who was visiting from out of town. However, the colleague did say that the flat was beautiful, clean and well-maintained; that the terrace was an unexpected treat; and that the location was ideal. She also found Emma to be an exceptional hostess and particularly liked the little notes Emma left around the flat informing the occupant of this and that...a very sweet and homey touch.
Emma was a perfect hostess and we loved her homie, unique place. Very much fit the neighborhood in terms of character and charm. 4 thumbs up!
I booked Emma & Ayrton's loft for two nights as the last stop on my trip across country with my son and two dogs, our mini holiday before pushing on to upstate NY and my new job. This was the perfect space for us to have a break and enjoy Toronto. The flat is spotless and beautifully furnished, with everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. And the location couldn't be better -- smack at the heart of West Queen West's great restaurants and shops and wonderful Trinity Bellwoods Park, where my San Francisco dogs discovered Toronto SQUIRRELS!!!! (This is the perfect area of Toronto for people with dogs, fyi. Very dog friendly!)
Because of our terribly late arrival we had a bit of a snafu when we got to the loft, but Emma was more than accommodating and bent over backwards to rectify the problem, and even offered us an extra night at the flat, which we gratefully accepted. I can't imagine a better host or experience of airbnb. We hope to come back! --Kate, Zachary and the dogs
I would just like to say that Emma was a wonderful host and her place was just as the pictures depicted !!! Awesome location on queen west and plenty to see and do in Toronto (all walking distance) I ha booked the place for my sisters birthday as it was the long weekend and there were many activities to do! Emma left various sticky notes throughout the apartment which was very very helpful! I felt like she was there! I had a bit of trouble finding the door of you can believe that.... Her sticky notes in the hallway didn't stick and I accidentally went to the wrong place and bothered another neighbor (oops) sorry neighbor! Found it through another door with the help of a friend ... Make sure you have a phone with a light as it was a bit dark in the hallway
The patio was awesome and the air conditioning was a blessing
Despite a few mixups on both ends I hope that Emma will continue to rent her place as it was a wonderful space and in a great location!
Thanks so much Emma
Great apartment in a great location! Tons of shops, good food plus couldn't be easier to get on public transport. Emma was an ideal communicator! Thanks for a successful stay.
Emma and Ayrton's place couldn't have been better.
It's located right in the epicentre of what I came to realise is the very best part of Toronto. Great restaurants and coffee places and a lovely park right on the doorstep. The best veggie burger I've ever eastern just down the street at a place called
The experience of staying there was a dream. Emma had labelled everything and it was all super easy. She checked in several times to ensure I was okay, but we never felt that she was breathing down our necks.
A superlative air bnb experience.
Thanks Emma and Ayrton.
Emma was so hospitable, always checking in to make sure we were ok and had everything we needed. The apartment was in a fantastic location, very spacious and so nicely decorated. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Toronto. Thanks Emma and Ayrton!
Emma was great...would be happy to have her back in the future!
