Lovely apartment! Everyone I met here is friendly and kind, the reception and everyone who works at this apartment is nice and responsible. Thank you very much to a nice staff member named Michelle who responded to my email and decided to rent this apartment to me. Here is pet friendly, which means you may meet some cute pets:)

Great apartments with lovely communal areas, gym and view of London

Review Date Aug 2021

It’s a great development with lovely communal areas and the gym. There is an amazing view of London of the rooftop and the concierge team is super helpful. The building hosted a BBQ and it was a lot of fun and a great way to meet people in the building.

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

The areas has all the groceries stores – Marks and Spencers, Coop, Sainsbury’s, Tesco, convenience shops and pharmacies. The building is on top fo the tube starting and it’s easy to get anywhere with the Northern line.

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

I brought a portal AC, but it turned out my flat has an AC integrated.

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

They have a handyman that quickly came and installed my paintings.

Great place te be 15min from Central London

Review Date Aug 2021

This is very safe, very quiet with the windows open, the building is very clean.
Amenities are good, gym and rooftop are great for the summer.
The residents team is great and you can always count on them.
The flat itself is nice, you feel good inside it. Price is okay but you pay more for the amenities.

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

Archway has been going through a lot of works, it’s now a great place to be with great location. Starbucks, Mark’s and Spencer, Costa and great pubs are just here.
Bars and shops are just down the street so it can be a bit noisy if you let the windows open. You might have the odd ones from time to time in the street but it’s a very busy place, 15min from Central London.

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

Higher floors are the best

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

It was a bit complicated sometimes in terms of communication, but issues got sorted.

Love the common areas. Have hosted parties, BBQs there. Gym’s not bad either! The place’s still quite new. The doors slam a little hard but that’s okay. I live in a studio but it’s quite spacious. Even with it’s own sleeping area. I feel like the combination is hard to find.

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

Plenty of supermarkets, m&s right down the stairs, plenty of restaurants, and cafes. Parks as well. dentist. Tube station. Parks. Basically, location can’t be beaten.

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

The ride on the northern line makes lots of noise. From here to Camden. It hurts your ears

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

Had one little ran in with the building management when I hosted a party but that was it.

5* city living

Absolutely love living here. The site is fantastic as is the team who work here. Nothing is ever too much trouble and everyone always has a smile on their face! Property is kept in good condition with great outdoor space to enjoy. The apartments are well laid out and work well for city life. An epic view from the upper floors as well! Would highly recommend.

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

Archway is a great location and has everything you need right on your doorstep. Traffic noise can be loud but the windows block all noise when they are closed. Great pubs, plenty of grocery shops – both high street chains and small local shops. Transport could not be easier with the tube station underneath the building and plenty of bus routes to central London.

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

Not much – my partner used to love here so I was already familiar with the property and what to expect

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

Quickly and helpfully. I received help on a weekend with a fob that stopped working which I did not expect to be fixed until the working week.

Living in Vantage Point is great. The views from its 2 terraces really lives up to its name. The building also has 3 lifts meaning you never have to wait more than 30 seconds for one to arrive. All concierges are very friendly and helpful for any issues.

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

The location of vantage point is extremely convenient as it is next door to the station, co-op m&s and Iceland.

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

People are always giving away unwanted items so I’d recommend joining the Facebook group to grab anything that may be of interest to you.

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

There were a couple of minor issues when I moved in which were sorted with an email and a 1 day wait

Marcia, Raimonda, Felix, Lukas and most recently Juan – the resident’s team and the sole heart of the building are the first people who come to mind when reviewing my experience of living at Vantage Point. Made to a greater extent out of personal relationships rather than out of building blocks it comprises, this development features something I haven’t quite got to experience at any other place before moving here.
Me personally, as much as other residents love spending our time in many of the communal areas – be it work or socialising or simply having a glass of wine on one of the terraces in addition to our cosy sunlit peaceful flats.
Write a hundred 5-star reviews – it won’t be enough! This place is vibrant with life but subtle in textures, welcoming friendships but protective of privacy, suggestive of drift, but holding tight to its roots and core values – the central point of which is residents’ wellbeing.

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

– Superior transport links (Archway station [Northern line] is 10 secs away from the building)
– Opulence of essential infrastructure within quick reach (Post-Office; Whittington Hospital; St. Johns Way Medical Centre; Archway Dental Group; Well Highgate Pharmacy; over six grocery shops – with the closest M&S being less than a minute away; a variety of restaurants, coffee shops, the list goes on ) less than 10 mins walk away
– Substantial investment from Islington Council into the community – everything from their support of local businesses during the pandemic, timely rubbish disposal, available funding options for artists and art organisations, etc

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

Truly hard to move out, in fact, close to impossible

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

The building management responded to all the problems I raised.

The comfort, the style, the views!

The building is very modern, and the flats are smartly designed, even the studios have enough storage space. The facilities are another perk of Vantage point – the dining room is impressive with amazing views of the city, a big kitchen and plenty of dining space (with gorgeous dining tables!), perfect to book for private events. You can also enjoy the views from the lounge area, also very well designed, and of course from the roof terrace looking at the London skyline. Last but not least, the gym and the pool table add to the perks of Vantage point!
The people in reception are friendly and willing to help with any query.

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

Perfect location right next to the tube station with all amenities nearby, M&S, Coop and Sainsburys are all within 5 min walk. As the location is quite central, it might he get noisy, mostly during the summer when the windows are open all day/night.

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

That there might be an annual increase in the rent.

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

The building management have always been responsive to any issues we have raised.

The development is amazing! The flat is beautiful, spacious and well designed, has great furniture, perfect shower and breathtaking view from the window. The building has common areas where you can work in your laptop, chat with the neighbours, bring friends or just spend the afternoon with a glass of wine. The best part is the staff! The concierges are lovely, they are always ready to help whatever you need. Marcia, Felix, Raimonda, Juan, Laura and everyone in the building really make me feel at home!

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

It’s great to be just right next to the underground station and have a lot of options to grab a coffee, groceries, restaurants and pubs etc. At night Archway area can be a bit rough but not unsafe at all.

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

Archway is a very busy area. The good side is that you are always well connected and can get everything you need in a minute. On the other hand, it can be very noisy specially in the summer, when we leave windows open.

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

We have never had any real issue. One day our toilet cover broke, we bought a new one and Lukas (the handyman) was super quick and helpful to install the new one. The team also was very helpful in arranging a park space for us in the garage.

Design is great, modern and stylish, all the areas are kept clean. The team is super friendly and always happy to help. As per facilities, the gym could be a bit bigger and better equipped, some treadmills wouldn’t be bad. As summers get warmer, it’d be good to have AC installed in the flats.

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

I feel there’s much to do around the area itself. It’s easy to travel to travel and good for walks. Sometimes can be noisy though.

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

I wish I had been able to choose a different flat with better view maybe a few floors above. But no choice was given.

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

I’ve had really no major issues, and the small ones were solved promptly.
