Review Date Mar 2018

We moved here for the location and proximity to the park. Having moved in from the country (where we were bored) green space was important to us as well as an apartment we could personalise. Vista provides both of these – with views of the park you can often forget how central you are to London and the flat was modern and blank inside but gave me the ability to change and make it more personal to my taste.
People have commented that they thought the commuting would be difficult but have clearly never taken a bus. Getting the bus over the bridge and up to Sloane Square really does take minutes but as I no longer need to worry about a commute in the morning I personally like the excuse to stretch my legs. It is quiet but there is so much on your doorstep and the perfect location to get out and explore.

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

The charge for a parking space in ridiculous but there are streets nearby with free weekend parking which is useful for guests and it would be helpful if this type of information was available upon arrival.

Very quiet

Review Date Mar 2018

Vista Chelsea Wharf is a perfect base – and hence why lots of people use it for airbnb or as a second home. We were disappointed not to have more neighbours here but as the development often stands fairly empty due to the number of foreign investors who only use their apartment a few times a year – it is quiet. Battersea Power Station is bringing with it more services and we have started to wander along there to use the restaurants and store that has opened up as it sells some more exciting things than the central store on site (which is still very handy).

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

That a lot of the flats are owned by foreign investors who don’t let it out but just use sparingly. For some this is a benefit as the place is quiet but we would sometimes like there to be a bit more going on.

Great rental investment

Review Date Mar 2018

This is a great rental investment. I have let it long let and also for short airbnb rentals. The flat has a simple layout with a balcony looking out towards the park and a view at the back towards the re-development of Battersea Power Station. Tourists renting for short lets love that it is modern but has views of iconic parts of London as well as being a short walk to Chelsea and the shops and bars. I never have a problem letting it out and get a great return.

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

You are not strictly meant to do airbnb so you cant give people access to the gym/sauna/pool without someone on site to do it.

I love my development because it is Modern and Spacious. There is also in house air cooling which is very convenient because it gets very hot during the summer time. Commute to work is exemplary as the bus stops are directly outside the development and the station is about a 10 minutes walk away.

I love the location of my development because it is very local to my work. There is also a nearby park which is perfect to walk my dog. It is a slow a very friendly area so feel comfortable letting my children go to the nearby shops. There are many restaurants and takeaway shops close by for those long days at work.

Quiet near to the Battersea Park

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Aug 2019

I am a dog owner so it’s great that we’re so close to Battersea Park. I also like that the local restaurants and cinema are only a short walk. Great facilities onsite including an underground car park and a store/deli that is open until 11pm.

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

I like that it’s a modern and distinctive looking building.

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

It can get a bit noisy at the rear side of the building due to the train line that runs behind the block.

I chose this development because it is in close proximity to my office, there are many shops and restaurants nearby so night outside see never too hard to find a good meal. The best feature of my home would be the balcony and the floor to ceiling windows.

Great night life

Review Date Aug 2019

My favourite thing about living here would be the residents only gym, as a personal trainer this allows me to have access to the gym whenever I need. The night life here is great there are many shops and restaurants nearby.
Building management tends to respond quite slowly however they get the job done.
