Feels immediately like home

Verified Resident

Perfect for those who are looking for high quality living, excellent building management service and cozy atmosphere. Coming from the Nordics, the quality and style of the facilities meet our expectations extremely well. You feel safe, supported and welcomed by the staff including our dog. Whether you want to do gym, work or party in your home building, Vantage Point offers all of them. It really feels like a nice community here, getting all the privacy you need (spacious apartments, no noice from other apartments or in the corridors) at the same time.

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

Close to big parks like Waterlow and Hampstead Heath. Hope to get more restaurants and cafes in Archway.

Great experience

Verified Resident

The development is new and modern. It is especially clean- there are a number of co-living spaces which are great in providing a close escape from the apartment. The staff at reception are always friendly and helpful. The location is exceptional – right next to the tube station, making it easy to commute without any stress.

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

It is right next to the tube station making travel easy. The shops are convinient- there is a coop opposite as well as a Starbucks.

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

Wish i had known how much space there was- a lot more storage space than anticipated

Great experience and lovely amenities in modern building located in a Archway

Verified Resident

Living in Vantage Point has been nothing but a pleasure. The residents team are all lovely and always there to help. The amenities are lovely, always clean, and makes it feel like home away from home. After moving from NY, I knew the adjustment was going to be challenging but Vantage Point did many things to make it less hard. Always greeting me when I walked in, demonstrating their effort to have a small chat whenever I would get back from a long day, and always being so welcoming. I love Vantage Point so much and am very happy about my decision of choosing to live here. Although it is 30 minutes from central London, I don’t mind being outside of the city and having Hampstead Heath so close by. Being a veterinary student, I love that the building allows pets in the building. I do wish that they would be allowed to use the communal areas but I understand some residents would not be in favor of that. Everything is very modern and up-kept well.

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

Not in central London

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

No pets on communal floor

Great building, concierge and views.

Verified Resident

Excellent place to live, close to all the fun spots along the northern line. Great extras (2 floors of communal amenities, gym, living area, games room, large kitchen and dining area, and of course great views). And the concierge were great!

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

Only downside is Archway itself. It’s not a pretty location, yet is close to many nice places anyway.

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

Nothing of note.

All in all, a great place to live.

Verified Resident

Vantage Point has been a wonderful place with us with a warm welcoming team and incredible facilities. The rooms are of a very high quality and the location is great. The building has managed to build a great community of people who are happy to interact and engage with one another. All in all, a great place to live

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

The location is great, the northern line is underrated with regards to the stops on it. The high street is filled with community-based startups with plenty of variety in terms of shops, food, and supermarkets. Waterlow Park and Hampstead Heath are right around the corner and provide a great getaway feel when you need to escape the hustle and bustle of London.

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

Induction hobs, we bought normal pans and pots and therefore had to change them. But other than that, everything was pretty clear from the get-go.

The staff really make this Vantage Point a home.

Verified Resident

We’ve enjoyed our time living in Vantage Point. We feel the design of the building internally is beautiful, including the amenity spaces, however at times appliances and finishes are somewhat faulty and some corners have been cut.

The facilities in the Vantage Point are a huge selling point which adds to the value of the building exponentially. The car park is a nice addition, however the upkeep of the car park is not satisfactory, often times littered and/or flooded.

Onto the real star of the show…the staff. They are beyond helpful, attentive, kind and generally just good people. They make living at Vantage Point feel like home. The staff here have become more than just building staff and have become a part of our home, and to us that means job well done. We could not appreciate their attentiveness more. Any issue that arises, they immediately work to solve it and they do so happily. They make our life easier and we’re forever grateful for that. The review would be a 5 star if asked only about the staff.

Amazing experience for my first stay in London.

Verified Resident

I have been a resident at Vantage Point for less than 2 weeks and am greatly satisfied and impressed by the warm welcome I received and professionalism of the staff which is available for any enquiry regardless of the day or time using the built-in interphone in the flat.
The facilities available such as the gym , game room or librairy offer a wide range of options for the residents to enjoy for free. The flats have very modern decoration and equipments.
In conclusion , I would say you surely get excellent value for the rent pay.

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

Vantage point , I would say , is built in a strategic location in Zone 2 of London. Entrance to Archway underground station is just a 10 seconds walk away while the bus stop is a 2 minute walk. The area is calm with less traffic than in central London and grocery stores such as Co-op ( 1 min walk) and Sainsburry ( 5 min walk ) are close by. Furthermore, the area is full of several types of restaurants.

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

Every information I needed and asked for before moving in was answered so I did not have any bad surprises rather good ones such as the neighbors are friendly and resident events are held regularly to enable us to meet and get to know each other.

Vantage point is an excellent choice

Verified Resident

The location is excellent especially for tube users. The design of the building is very modern and beautiful. The facilities are top notch – with a gym, dining area, games room and library. There can however be more social events which will make it even better. The staff is helpful and provide excellent service at Vantage Point.

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

Close to tube station and shops.

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

No free car parking
