The property itself is lovely, albeit a bit overpriced

It’s furnished to a high standard and feels homely. Property management are responsive and very friendly but can sometimes take quite a while to actually resolve an issue. There are no amenities in the building which I think could’ve been a big advantage but the property itself is nice. The cleaners operate most days of the week but do only seem to do a floor a day which seems very slow and like an excess expense to the letting agent for how much work they actually do.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

There’s a good range of available shops and restaurants with excellent transport connections into London, but parking in the area is difficult due to an inadequate number of spaces for the tenants and the large station car park behind the property garners quite a lot of anti social behaviour from kids and teenagers screaming at all hours.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

I don’t feel as though there are any aspects that were concealed from me on my viewing, and that any additional insights outside of that are purely things to expect from living anywhere really. There is occasional noise from the nearby car park that can be annoying, neighbours have a habit of slamming doors and smoking where they’re not supposed to but generally none of that actually infringes on my living in a meaningful way and it’s not something anyone could’ve predicted or known before moving in.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

The management are usually very quick to reply to an issue and do go to an effort to put your mind at ease, but equally so it’s not unusual for a few weeks to go by before anything non-urgent is resolved. I also think the external company used for out of hours emergencies are close to useless as they have no agency regarding issues and are happy to leave it until the building management’s working hours, completely defeating the point.

Home away from Home.

The design facilities in the building are fantastic, makes you feel like you’re living in a hotel, well kept and always mistimed to a high standard. The building and property management are always available incase you have any issues and they get resolved very quickly.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Good aspect: great location, furnished apartments, great designs. less than 5 minute walk to town centre. Great amenities close by such as bowling, cinema, gym, swimming pool and train station.

negatives: little bit of traffic noise but not that bad.
No free parking for guests

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Bad insight is the electricity bill is higher than what was quoted. It would be nice to have a more accurate pricing but understandable due to the crisis we are witnessing

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

The building management team have always been quick to respond to any issues which is fantastic compared to your traditional landlords.

Kooky Staines is a very good development.

Kooky Staines:

DESIGN:
– Living here is like living in luxury. The flats are completed to a high spec including the furnishings.

FACILITIES:
– Gym on-site is amazing albeit small.
– Concierge provides a solid service and very reassuring to have.
– Wi-Fi service is excellent.
– There are ongoing maintenance issues within the building e.g. second lobby door consistently malfunctioning, water issues.

Property/ Building Management:
– It is well managed with consistent/ concise communication protocols.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

GOOD:
– Convenient location; near train station, shops and Heathrow.
– Good amenities in the area; bars, restaurants and vast range of parks nearby e.g Virginia Water, Runnymede etc.

BAD:
– Parking availability is poor especially being so close to the train station we’re in constant competition with commuters for parking.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

– the expense of underfloor heating- before we moved in it was explained that it would be a small charge since it’s communal however that’s proven to not be the case.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

Building management has generally responded to issues in a quick and efficient manner.

Living in Kooky

The building has unique design with each flat featuring a balcony and magnificent views. Two elevators make traffic between different floors fast and smoothly. Free gym is available for use, which is a great benefit. The communal area is cleaned up regularly to high standards and so far I am very satisfied with the level of service and communication I received from building and property management. I could say they do their best to keep the residents delight and secure.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

The development is very close to all shops and restaurants, there are plenty of choices nearby. It’s within walking distance to the river and parks. Excellent transport links with less than 10 minutes walk to either bus or train station. Overall, it’s a quiet and lovely area. There is also a private garden with lots of greenery.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

The building could get very warm inside especially in hot weather but luckily it’s well aired.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

Excellent service, they are always very polite and professional, I don’t have any complaints.
