Review Date May 2020

The Property Management team are amazing and always hands on, whilst we have been in lock down they have set up a weekly “Walkway Warriors” keep fit class, where the majority of the complex are joining in on their balconies, such a lovely community vibe considering with are in a apartment complex. We then all clap for the NHS and Carers

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

Close access to train and bus routes, Heathrow Airport just a 10 min drive away, It is up and coming with many new developments surrounding Be:Here. There is a big improvement project going on in the surrounding area which is lovely to see, and there are all the major supermarkets close by.
The Flats are very spacious and well thought out, and come furnished which is a plus point with good quality products.
The roof terrace is amazing, I was blown away when I saw this. and there is a communal courtyard. The complex is Clean Tidy and very secure. I also like the reception area where we have the bring me box set up for your parcels to be delivered.

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

Would prefer Blinds fitted on the Walkway windows, I have put a net curtain up (as permitted) but now cannot open the window so does get extremely warm, and because of the trains it is too noisy to keep the front door open for fresh air.
The flats are very economical heat/water wise which is also a major plus

What is the best feature of your home:

Spacious and has loads of light, good quality furniture and fixings, Free wifi, secure parking, amazing roof terrace

To be honest, we haven’t seen such a beautiful interior or exterior design of an apartment before in London so far.

The garden apartments at the ground floor is not nice and beautiful and the front space for walking , children’s play makes us immensely proud!
I bet, you won’t see such a beautiful terrace anywhere with an attraction of having separate bubbles to sit and party or chit chat. In summer, it’s heavenly!

We don’t feel like having a need of any other amenities like Gym or swimming pool inside because of our amazing property management team! The whole team(especially the property manager) is so active and always available to help the people living inside. They are easily reachable and very reactive to our queries/issues. They organise plenty of events to make people engaged and they make us so comfortable that we can discuss all issues transparently!

They are lively and make us lively and make this place a liveable and make our experience lovable and amazingly extraordinary! Thanks to the entire crew of our property management team!

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

Our Gatefold buildings property is very well connected to everything like railway station(great proximity to London Paddington and Heathrow airport), bus stops to almost places including Heathrow airport, Amazing parks, primary & Junior schools, essential and non essential shops, restaurants (eat-in or take away) covering majority of cuisines, Banks, Coffee shops, major grocery stores, etc.
Street is very quite, calm and very clean& this is because of the presence of luxurious apartments located.

We haven’t experienced any security or safety issues yet, not even observed any anti-social behaviour

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

Warm welcome! Amazing hospitality! Great living! Kids and family loves this property for plenty of reasons! Couldn’t have got anything better than this option in London in all areas of consideration!

What is the best feature of your home:

We liked everything about this property! Think of anything, we won’t we saying anything less than “Excellent and Amazing”

Well designed and lovely space! It offers lots of local options and then it’s close enough to enjoy Ealing too. When the new Trainline comes in and we can get all over London in no time at all then this place will be absolute GOLD!! Cannot wait for the new cross rail!

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

We’re close to the train line with a new line coming and new development happening

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

There’s a roof garden!

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

Finish the new train line, the faster this is done, the quicker we’re connected!

I really like the design of the Be Here building, I think it’s fresh and modern and the flats are lovely, and they have plenty of space for each individual, not having to share a bathroom is a great privilege, you definitely get what you pay for. I also love the rooftop and that we have somewhere to go in lighter and warmer evenings. I think those that look after the property do a great job, they are always on hand and reply to issues very quickly and professionally.

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

I definitely think that the area doesn’t suit those in the younger age bracket, due to lack of social spaces, there isn’t any bars / restaurants within the immediate area which means you have to travel away from Hayes, but there is a good transport system that means you can anywhere else pretty easily. I do think it terms of food shopping, are area is well equipped, you have plenty of option that suit all incomes.
With other new builds popping up, the area is looking a lot nicer and fresher, although rather noisy whilst building work is happening, and also due to being so close to a train station and a busy street, the traffic noise can be irritating, especially late at night, but then that transport system makes it easy for myself and others to get to and from work.

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

I wish I would’ve known or been told about the noise levels in the area, and looked up the upcoming builds, as these have definitely been tiresome.

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

I would love a inside fitness area, although I know there isn’t space for one in the current design, most upcoming properties do have some sort of fitness feature in their layout.

Great place to live, perfect for young couple and family, great to flat share with friends also up and coming area. We would thoroughly recommend it for 2-3 years possibly longer. Very good team and maintained through the week by professionals. Would happily stay long term

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

Great team looking after the property, lift system isn’t great and car parking security hasn’t been fixed for a while

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

Train maintenance can cause real issues in the night

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

Better family space or kids area, needs a gym for residents

The condominium where I live has a good structure, space for recreation where the whole family can enjoy. My family loves the space they have on the Roof Terrace, we always enjoy it a lot in Spring and Summer. When we have a problem in our flat the manager and employees of the condominium always solve it with the greatest efficiency.

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

The place where I live is well located, has a variety of transport, has a lot of commerce, supermarkets. I just think that the street where I live has poor lighting and few dumps.

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

Firstly in security, transport, schools and commerce.

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

Whenever we have any kind of problem in our FLAT, we report it to the manager and the problem is solved immediately. We were very pleased with everyone’s efficiency.

Great apartments, must say. Spacious, clean and well maintained. Since we moved here, almost 3yrs ago, we have been very satisfied with the quality of the apartment itself, but what we actually appreciate most are the services provided within the complex ( maintenance, deliveries, activities, helpfulness ). I can say that we highly recommend living here.

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

Hayes high street offers plenty of local shops. Lidl, Asda, Tesco Superstores just minutes away. Only 30 min drive to Central London. Transportation is great, 5min walk to the train station, links to Central London and Heathrow Airport every few minutes. Train station is expanding, as it will be part of the Crossrail project. Bringing Crossrail in this area has lead to loads of improvements since we first moved here.

What is the best feature of your home:

The fact that be:here is Pet friendly is the most important feature for us 🙂

The flats are well designed to a good finish with lots of light and great storage. The roof garden is a real bonus when the sun is out.

The property management team are very thorough and respond quickly to any issues. The parcel concierge service and bike storage are great. Most importantly it is pet friendly!

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

Very convenient to get to the station and local bus routes. Various shops and supermarkets within easy walking distances. Lots of green spaces including stockley park and the canals.
Don’t hear any road traffic. Trains we’re noisy at first but quickly got used to them and now hardly notice them.
Not many bars/pubs but hoping more will come with the new developments around.

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

More knowledge on the area and the upcoming building work around

What is the best feature of your home:

The spacious living/kitchen area is my favourite multi functional space!

Kash and the team so a fantastic job. Be here Hayes is a great place to live if you want a high quality flat which is very comfortable with fantastic transport links. The room terrace is an added bonus.

It’s fantastic for people who work in London and in reading – straight trains to both!

Property Manager is absolutely fantastic; very approachable and always responds to any queries or needs. Roof top garden area is tranquility of bliss when the weather is favorable. Outdoor grills and plenty of seating adds to the ambience.

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

Not far from the high street where accessibility to local shops is easy; large supermarket within a 10 min walking distance. Hayes and Harrington station which is currently undergoing an expansion to support cross rail is a 5 min walk.

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

Lack of parking for visitors.

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

Expeditiously and either through an email response or phone call. Very prompt in dealing with any concerns raised
