Hard Loft In Downtown Toronto
MAY 26, 2021
Open for small sessions (1-4ppl). Thx so much for the interest & inquiries.
Stunning ground floor heritage hard loft in downtown Toronto. Corner unit with South East exposure and 16 foot ceilings. Loft has exposed red and tan brick, dark hardwood floors, pharaonic windows (x4), a massive chalkboard, heaps of books, thriving plants, and tons of character. Space is ideal for:
* Photography/videography (lifestyle, social media, etc.)
* Small client meetings
SOUTH EAST EXPOSURE
The THREE large transom windows w stained glass are east facing, the other window, with the manzanita branch, is south facing.
COVID and PARTY SIZE
Due to Covid, hosting more than 4 ppl is more costly since there's more potential of exposure & wear and tear. Each additional guest over 4 people is $25 (firm).
$65 for 1-2 people for 1 HR (*NEW*)
$50 for 1-2 people (2 HR MINIMUM)
$55 for 2-4 people (2 HR MINIMUM)
Larger groups cost more: wear n tear, virus exposure...
Full Day Rate (7-8 hrs) is $600 (w Covid, it's difficult to find safe, warm places to hangout).
If host is asked to sign a permit for film/photos to be monetized (ex: national commercial, prominent brands like Nike, etc.), extra fee to be applied.
There is a daycare nearby but kids are NOT playing outside Mon-Fri from 11:45-2:45 pm. Before and after that, kids can be heard playing, which I actually find endearing during these bleak times.
Setup and tear down time must be factored in start/end time. To encourage guests to reserve accordingly and to minimize last minute OT requests, OT rates are:
* $45: extra 30 minutes
* $90: extra hour
CLEANING VS TAX FEE
$35 Cleaning fee covers TAXES/SITE FEES—NOT cleanup. Space is expected to be in the same condition guests received it (if not, cleaning fee to be applied).

Stunning space with great light! So many beautiful textures, architectural features and pieces. Easy to book, clear instructions, great price, and as advertised in photos. All around lovely experience - highly recommend renting this loft!
Sheryl's place was great. Large windows, plenty of light, beautifully furnished, high ceilings. Communication was excellent.
The loft was perfect for our small photo shoot needs. It was beautiful and clean with a very upscale cozy feel. All details in the reservation and communications with the host were easy to understand with the perfect amount of detail so we knew what to expect. Thanks again!
Sheryl was a perfect host and the spot was ideal for our needs. The place was clean and exactly as seen in the photos.
Sheryl was a really great host! Would recommend to anyone
Sheryl's place is fantastic! It looks even better in person and the natural light is every photographer's dream. Everything was clean and sanitized, and Sheryl's directions made it so easy to let yourself in and out. Would recommend!
Sheryl was great at communication, offered clear instructions for her place and was very friendly throughout the entire process! Her place is beautiful.
Very informative and communicated all throughout
The space was just as described and looks exactly like the listing. It was a wonderful space to use for my shoot. The only thing I wasn't a fan of was the notes that were left everywhere. I understand she wants to protect her property from damage but they were excessive in my opinion. Otherwise enjoyed the space.
Thx for the candid feedback, Noiry! I appreciate that some people don't like notes but I'd rather have them scattered about than charge people for damaging the space (January was spent painting and fixing up the space). It's really interesting as well since other guests have said they are grateful for the notes. Appreciate your note though (notes: we can always learn from them it seems!). :-) Best, Sheryl
Sheryl was very detail oriented and accommodating for setting up my shoot. Not to mention, the spacious unit is phenomenal with big bright windows that allow a ton of soft like in during the day. I recommend.
Thx for being so professional, Kareem! Appreciate the review too.
