Wonderful place to live

Verified Resident

Review Date Apr 2020

Great place to live with plenty of communal spaces for working and relaxing. The rooftop balconies are amazing with great views, complete with a BBQ and pizza oven. Also really nice to have a gym with regular classes to attend. The Residents Team are great and always on hand to help, and make the building feel like a safe and secure place to live. It’s nice to meet people living in the building at the communal events that are organised regularly.

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

Great independent restaurants, pubs, transport links and local parks

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

Can be quite noisy with the window open!

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

Can be slow to respond to emails but generally very good. If maintenance is need the Residents Team respond very quickly. External management (those not based within the building) such as those who deal with finance are a lot slower to respond and have often had to send multiple emails before getting a response.

The best place to rent in London

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Aug 2019

Had an amazing time in Vantage Point – from the building design, communal areas, helpful and friendly residents team and the perfect location – can’t fault it!

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

It’s extremely well connected with 2 branches of the Northern line and just up Holloway Rd / Upper St. Building is literally next to the tube.

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

There was a bin chute when we moved in which the building decided to not fix anymore as it broke down too often. It’s now permanently closed and residents need to bring their bins to the basement now, but only one lift goes there out of 3 and there are no stairs to it. So you can easily find yourself waiting a while for the lift! It’s not the worst thing in life, but I wish they would fix the chute, it’s not like the rents are cheap and Essential living can’t afford it… Also flats don’t have A/C (communal areas do) and it gets REALLY hot in the summer. But that’s probably the case in any flat in London!

Best accommodation experience

Having lived in many places, living in Vantage Point has been the best experience so far. I love living in such modern building with beautiful exterior. It’s not only it’s design that’s perfect, but also the services they offer. A member of staff always on site has been helpful in many situations from fixing something in the apartment to helping with the post etc. Having the option to go to the gym anytime I want is of a great benefit. Moreover, it’s good to be able to hang out in so many common areas. As a student I don’t have to travel to my uni library as I can just stay in Vantage Point and study there! Also, it’s a pet friendly accommodation which is quite hard to find in London.

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

I love living close to the tube station. It’s very access whether by tube or by bus. The building is also located close to 2 big parks which is beneficial for people with kids and pets. There are plenty of grocery storEs to choose from. The only disadvantage I find is to not have that many restaurant options

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

Vantage Point is a beautiful building with excellent facilities. You can tell a lot of thought has gone into making sure that it is not only designed to look modern and welcoming, but also has a lot of very useful and practical elements.

Everything within the apartments themselves is high quality, from the kitchen with it’s fantastic use of utilising space to little touches here and there that make you realise how much thought has gone into the development.

The really great thing about Vantage Point is that there is so much to enjoy outside of your apartment too, with two beautiful community balconies, a library/office space, a lounge area, dinning room with fully fitted kitchen, gym and games room.

Location wise, you are practically on top of Archway tube station and there is an abundance of supermarkets, coffee shops and restaurants on your door step.

The residence team also make Vantage Point a great place to live. They are on reception 24/7 and are always there to greet you, take parcels and help with anything you need. They are a friendly bunch and having them there really helps you feel secure in the building.

Overall, I can’t fault this place!

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

Great choice of supermarkets, coffee shops and restaurants. Pick a direction and you’ll no doubt find a little hidden gem. Practically on top of Archway tube station (Northern Line) and within walking distance to Upper Holloway (London Overground). Plenty of bus stops nearby too, as well as a number of Zip Cars if you need to rent a car.

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

Quite a few dogs here. I think it’s great, but if you have a serious dog problem, phobia or something it may bother you. However, they are not allowed in communal areas so you will only pass them in the lifts and at reception.

Great location next to the underground, and really great residents team always happy to help. The communal facilities are lovely and it’s nice to meet other people in the building.

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

Great pubs and restaurants, and choice of food shops. Being so close to the underground station makes it feel safe if coming home late at night.

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

It can be quite noisy, especially at night time if the window is open. The flats also get very hot in the summer!
