We are newlyweds starting out on our own new adventure. Living in one of the most diverse cities in the world has allowed us to experience the food, language, and customs of many different cultures. This has fueled our desire to continually travel and explore the world. We love seeing the world, but Toronto will always be our home! So we hope that we can share our enthusiasm about Toronto, its people, and neighbourhoods.

TRAVELING BUSINESS WOMAN

  • 5 of 5
I am pretty picky because I travel so much. VRBO has proven to be highly satisfactory in making accommodations online and has proven more affordable than a hotel. When I return to Toronto, I would love to use this pad again not only because it covers my bases but because the owner was so hospitable. I walked in saw these things: clean, organized, quiet, modern-chic, cooking gadgets for a foodie. The neighborhood provided all I wanted within walking distance. If I listed draw backs they would be minor: I would say that it is impossible to get completely dark at night - strips of lighting from the street show on the ceiling. No street noise though. Little glitches like the light in the shower was out, the toilet paper dispenser rack comes off if you aren't careful, and the bed linens were not the highest quality,though they were soft and clean. The bath linens were wonderful. I felt at home and enjoyed how lovely and comfortable this place was.

AWESOME LOFT

  • 5 of 5
This place is great! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.
It doesn't get any more conveniently located and is very private. It has everything you will need including a washer & dryer. All communication was super smooth and Alvin was very helpful. We will return to Toronto for future visits and will be sure to schedule our dates around the availability of this loft. Thanks so much Alvin!

FIT FOR A QUEEN ON QUEEN!

  • 5 of 5
A cosy, stylish, compact super loft condo in the heart of the fun on Queen St. The apartment is just as described. I was a bit late arriving but there was Alvin waiting to welcome me and give me the 'lay of the land'. Lots of nice food choices nearby and Chapters/Starbucks and the Scotiabank Theatre for a movie. The streetcar is just a the end of the block to whisk you to where you want to go. The loft has an elevator to the third floor, dishwasher and washer/dryer and all the kitchen items you need - if you want to cook - just a great experience - it is quiet, feels safe - an all around an excellent experience. Take a calculated risk and book in with Alvin - you will feel jaunty on John!

GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
Great location, close to lots of good places to eat. Within walking distance to many attractions. Alvin was great to deal with and was very helpful. We arrived quite late and he emailed just after we landed to let us know what local late night eateries would be open.

The unit is very clean and well stocked with most things that you would need. It was great to have a washer and dryer to use within the unit.

We have already recommended the unit to our friends and family for future stays.
