Amazing experience

I love my flat— it feels simultaneously modern and cozy. I moved here with my cat and I feel so lucky to have found such a beautiful, pet-friendly building. The staff who work reception are always helpful and amiable, and have made me feel comfortable and welcome.

What is the best feature of your home?
There are so many aspects of my home that I love, but I particularly adore my balcony, the friendly service, and all the doggies I’ve gotten to meet in the elevators and lobby.
Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

In a convenient location and a lovely neighborhood. I feel safe walking from my bus stop to my flat when I’m coming home from a long day of classes.

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

Was not expecting such friendly service. When I first moved in, Michael was kind enough to show me how to work the amenities. When I needed to print something last minute, I emailed reception and Phoebe printed it for me within five minutes. When I had trouble carrying a package Steph came to my rescue. Alex helped me book the dining room for a dinner party I’m hosting. Anything you need, just ask. Everyone at Sailmakers is really thoughtful and helpful.

A unique experience in city living.

Verified Resident

An excellent development catering for a wide range of tenants from young business professionals, families, students, dog owners and couples returning to city living having spent far too long in the suburbs. This mix is one of the attractions of Sailmakers. The Sailmakers team could not be more helpful and their humour and professionalism have made our move here easy. The gym is fabulous – the 360 degrees views over London are a great distraction. The cinema room and business centre are an added bonus. The parcel room means you can just pop down and pick up any parcels on receipt of a code – no more waiting in on a delivery company. There have been a few teething problems with a lift and the entrance doors which are yet to be resolved. Similarly, the developer’s slow response in replacing cracked window panes is just a little infuriating. Sailmakers represents reasonable value for money if you make good use of the facilities. The location could not be better – just a few minutes from Canary Wharf with its fine collection of excellent restaurants and shops. The lack of traffic and fresh air here make it one of the most agreeable places to live in London. Views over The Thames, Greenwich, the City and Vauxhall are breathtaking. If you come here with an image of Canary Wharf in its infancy, you are in for a surprise.

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

As the owner of an old labrador not used to living in a city apartment, I was worried about moving here. It turns out that this place is very dog-friendly. There are dog parks, lots of traffic free walks along The Thames or the wharves or I can walk to Greenwich through the foot tunnel. The DLR has retained its futuristic feel and you can take dogs on it. The Clipper boat service is excellent and the Jubilee Line makes getting to central London a short jaunt. There are so many good restaurants to cater for all budgets. In short, you could quite happily stay in CW as it really has evolved over the years into a destination in itself. The added security in CW means that it feels safe if you are new to big city living.

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

I would like to have tested the sound insulation quality when viewing the property.

Great experience

Verified Resident

The building is brand new as well as all the facilities and furnitures. The design is modern at the same time minimal, which is what I like. The location is perfect for someone who works in Canary Wharf and it is a huge plus that there are supermarkets nearby.

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

Supermarkets nearby, close to offices in Canary Wharf. Not many restaurants in the area.

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

Easy and excellent attention

Verified Resident

The building has a magnificent construction quality, every detail is perfectly maintained, the common areas are beautiful and it is a relief day by day. The gym is my favorite area, with incredible views and the machinery is the best in quality.

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

the area was something that worried me when I decided to move but I am happy with its location as far as the subway, there are around several restaurants. about 10 minutes walk is a waitrose supermarket that is very important for me to be close.

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

In the area there is no party atmosphere on weekends, the atmosphere is concentrated on working days

Amazing Experience

Verified Resident

I think I was the first person that moved into this building. My experience has just being amazing since the beginning. Last year I was living in another place, I was spending the same amount of money but I didn’t have any facilities. No gym, no common rooms, no study rooms… I didn’t have any concierge and if I had a problem I had to wait for the maintenance for months… Here is totally different, fabulous common spaces amazingly designed, concierges super helpful, patient and kind and the maintenance guys are super quick and always available. The gym is super ! With a great view and plus there is the possibility to get a pt and to join classes. The common rooms with the terraces are great and the screening room is super cute. The building is always clean and kept with care. Plus in case you want to have a party or an event you can book the common spaces without paying any fee. For sure I’m gonna stay here next year as well. I would definitely recommend Sailmakers. The best experience ever !

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

canary wharf is a really nice area, always clean and safe at night as well, I’m a young girl and I’ve never had any problem at night. The dlr is really close and the tube station as well. The shop center is really well furnished with a wide range of shops. There are even parks to chill. The only thing that is missing is a corner shop in case I need something at night.

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

Since I live in the first floor and in front of my terrace are building I would have chose another flat or another floor, but to be honest is not this big of a deal

Seamless from start to finish

Verified Resident

We have found the Sailmakers experience to be completely seamless from start to finish. When looking to move we were offered multiple viewings to ensure that we were confident in our choice. All reference checks were completed in a modern and quick manner that did not require multiple rounds of paperwork. All our queries before moving in were promptly responded to. Since moving in we have also had a great experience. The on site team are very friendly and it is clear they make a big effort to connect with residents on a personal level. My husband even received a birthday card from the team! Any minor issues we have faced with the flat have been sorted out immediately through the maintenance team. Not only have issues been resolved quickly but the team consistently remember to take into consideration that we have a young baby at home so when work has been carried out it has been done during reasonable hours and taking all health and safety precautions necessary (e.g. opening windows if using sprays and closing doors). Finally, the on site facilities are top notch and we make regular use of the gym and resident lounge. We are incredibly happy in our new home and rate the experience we have had to date with Sailmakers very highly!

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

The location is really versatile. You are minutes away from key transport links including the DLR, Jubilee Line and in the near future Crossrail. The surrounding area of Canary Wharf offers shopping and entertainment as well as nurseries and a variety of exercise classes such as Barry’s Bootcamp. It is also a lovely short walk over to Greenwich!

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

A couple things that I have found amazing and consider really unique selling points so should definitely be talked about include:
1- the air condiotining
2- inclusive gym classes

Good experience, people kind and attentive service.

Verified Resident

Since our move to this apartment we are pleased with the service provided. the staff are polite, helpful and we really like the apartment and the location of the building.
We previously lived at Lincon Plaza and we also enjoyed the experience, however we note that here the apartment is newer and more home-like, and offers a living area.
Very nice conviviality, gym and other services such as the cleaning staff who is always spotless and very attentive.
The amount charged for the apartment is slightly higher compared to others we checked, but upon availability this offered immediate availability and we were very pleased with the location.

What bothers us a lot is that from the apartment we hear all the noise from the DLR all the time the train pass by and that prevents us from having the apartment window open, because if we open, the noise is even louder and more annoying. Nor do we use the balcony for this reason and at night it sometimes gets in the way of falling asleep.

Overall we are pleased with the service provided and the apartment and all it offers.

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

Everything is near, very close to the transports, shops, supermarkets.
Nice river view around. We love the area.

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

The noise that the DLR do, if I knew what, I would like to be in another place.

Great overall experience

Knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating staff. A convenient location and extremely high level of finishing throughout the property and its facilities; no expense has been spared. Design is contemporary but achieves the right balance to make you feel at home.

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

Close to Canary Wharf which is ideal for professionals. Great transport links. Area itself lacks character.
