I have lived at Citrus Creek East Apartments for over 1 year and have had no problems. Maintenance staff is always quick to respond to work orders, office staff is always very helpful, and enjoy the location of the community.


By Brian Mihelich, Oct 18, 2017 from Google

One of the best 1st lake properties around. Although rent varies month to month.


By Bri_M108, Sep 30, 2017 from Apartment Ratings

One of the best 1st lake properties around. Although rent varies month to month. Lots of people make it challenging. Too many speed bumps. Yet an overall safe area. Parking is always plentiful whether in the lot or on the road.

Amazing Complex and Staff This place is exactly what I was looking for. Its kept clean and staff are so helpful. Collin Jonson was amazing!!! She took the time to explain the whole process, toured me around the complex and broke everything down so that I could really understand each document before signing my lease. I would recommend this complex to anyone, its really worth what you pay. I don't regret choosing this complex as my home, and my kids love it too.

Very nice apartments and safe area. Enjoy!


By Hailey Parks, Jun 06, 2017 from Our Website

Great neighborhood. Very clean pool & common areas. Nice little quiet space in the garden. Clean, carpeted apartments. Overall a great place to live!


By Ashley Raion, May 19, 2017 from Google

Moved in February and agree that the staff is extremely helpful and professional. Neat grounds, very quiet and speedy response from maintenance. Wish I would have moved in sooner!


By R. Lambert, Mar 15, 2017 from Apartment Ratings

I have lived in both apartments and houses so I have awareness of both worlds. I am very pleased with Citrus Creek Apartments over all other apartments that I have ever lived in during my past history. Coming from a 2-story 2700 sq. ft. house, this is just as nice. I had to get something just as nice as my previous house when I relocated back here to Louisiana from another state. Citrus Creek meets my needs with space, ambiance, peace and quiet along with safety. All personnel I have encountered have been very courteous during my time of needs. Warren and the other maintenance crew members are very nice as well as Karen in the office.

I moved to back to Louisiana in 2012 . I'm a mother of three boys who were in school at the time. I chose Citrus Creek site unseen and after reading many reviews. You will read some negatives but, I can assure you , if you have a family or pets this is the safest and best place for you . I have been here through a few managers but the quality of maintenance, " I love Dwayne" and the crew hasn't changed. I was able to let my boys go outside in peace and fun activities are in walking distance from your apartment. There were some issues in the apartment when I first moved in wasn't laid properly and some of my appliances were old. Some have been changed out and others I just lived with. There is a cozy fireplace, garden tubs after a hard day of working and relaxing pools around the property. Buy your own grill and roll it out to the pool as you may not want to use what they have on the property, we were never given any issues about it . It's a great community . The office host events for the residence , pets and children. Two things I did not like , residents from next door (Palmetto Creek) and ours not picking up after their pet and residents not properly disposing trash when we have several receptacles around the property. However, if I could do it again , this is where I would be . Make sure you place notices early when you are moving out so that your lease is not automatically renewed. Great Staff through all the changes...You will be pleased!!!

its is very goog i love it


By Fallon Brassette, Nov 19, 2015 from Google

I have lived here for over a year with my husband and two toddlers and we love it. We will be renewing our lease for another term. The front desk is very friendly and helpful, maintenance responds quickly and does a good job. My only complaint would be the pools are not kept completely clean. I think the apartments are beautiful and the area is great!


By Jon Beskow, Nov 19, 2015 from Google

We have rented here twice. We always keep coming back. We moved to rent a house because we had a small one on the way, but then the house we rented after a year the landlord decided to sell so we were in a pickle. We had to move out in a month and find a new place with a baby!!! So we came back to Citrus Creek. Never had a bad experience. We were lucky because they had one apartment left for rent and we took it. The area is beautiful and well kept. There is a walking track which is awesome! Plus on site gym. Very quiet and the management is fast to take care of any concerns or problems we might have. I highly recommend renting here. Pet friendly and kid friendly. The location is great because you are not far from great shopping and great restaurants. Oh and they have recently started to do fun events like food trucks and farmers markets on site!!! Love it here!! They have also made a lot of updates to the grounds.


By Mel Buller, Nov 19, 2015 from Google

Treated like Royalty by Laurie B/the manager. I came by to look, evaluate the square footage, layout. She took her time, and helped me tremendously. She was probably 50% of why I rented at this complex. That and another tenant come in and was telling me all about how good they are to the residence, maint. is good, and so on. I will be moving next month, and feel good about it. Being nice and professional always pays off. I was treated rudely at the neighbors next door complex, also a 1st Lake managed, and almost didn't stop. BUT, Laurie really turned it around. Hope her bosses see this.....She's the best.

I have lived here for over a year with my husband and two small children. We love it! We are staying here as a stepping stone before we buy a house and we couldn't be happier. Friendly customer service, quick maintenance, and beautiful complex.

Quality of Living I never dreamed I would be back in an apartment again. But life changes brought me here. Here to my apartment that I now call HOME. The most important thing I was looking for was a safe environment. This is a gated complex and has an advanced alarm system in my apt. I feel safe coming and going at any hour of the day. There are also security monitors installed around the complex allowing me to feel safe outside with my grandchildren and when I exercise or play tennis. Streams run throughout the complex making it very relaxing to sit outdoors. The pool area is spa like with a nice cabanna area. The grounds are always kept immaculate. Never a piece of trash is found. The apartment office staff is extremely helpful and pleasant. These are only just a few reason I call this HOME.


By Kenneth L., Aug 08, 2015 from Apartments

Citrus Creek East I have liv here for seven years and I have never experienced any issues. The staff is great and the owners are always improving the property.


By Sharika M., Aug 07, 2015 from Apartments

Spacious and Convenient I moved here a few weeks ago and I'm enjoying my place so far....I met the maintenance guy who is very helpful and the staff very friendly! The grounds are beautifully manicured too!


By Brent V., Jul 23, 2015 from Apartments

Amazingly peaceful My husband and I have never lived in an apartment before. We bought our first house and lived there for seven years. However, after we adopted our son the expense of his adoption forced us to sell our house to pay off this debt. We were terrified to go from homeowners to apartment renters but it has been amazing. Since we've been living here(6 months) we've been delighted. The complex is very quiet and the amenities of the tennis court and the pool have been very beneficial. The apartment size is very nice and fits our needs. Plus it has a tremendous amount of closet space, more than our old house. Not to mention, they take large dogs which meant we didn't have to lose our dog and our house. Fantastic place to live.

We have lived at Citrus Creek East coming on 3 years, Very nice property, well maintained with a friendly help full staff. close to shopping. I would recommend this complex to anyone.


By cgharing, May 28, 2014 from Apartment Ratings

We have been at Citrus Creek East going on 3 years now, excellent place to live, fast and courteous maintenance service, grounds are well kept, and the office staff is attentive and pleasant to work with. Good safe place to live, close to stores.


By bhburton7@yahoo.com, Oct 25, 2013 from Apartment Ratings

Citrus Creek East has afforded me a great living experience for nearly two years. Whenever there is a service requested, it is taken care of immediately. Maintenance as is phenomenal. Dwayne is always professional, and focused on his job. Overall the courteousness and politeness of the staff is contagious. I love it when the staff calls to see if a service was taken care of to my satisfaction.


By jammingj, Aug 28, 2013 from Apartment Ratings

Moving to Citrus Creek has been the best apartment community that my family and I have lived in thus far. We have stayed in 4 different places in less than 3 years. The management staff is always a pleasure. They call to check up on you after a service request is completed, they enjoy talking to me about my family, and just whatever I need I know I can ask them. I've even been able to fax a document a time or two. The maintenance staff is prompt, courteous, and does a great job completed what is given to them. Overall my stay here has been by far the best! The gym, jogging trail, and the resident activities all keep me where I am.


By jjaewilliams07@yahoo.com, Aug 15, 2013 from Apartment Ratings

I have lived at Citrus Creek East for four years and have loved living here. I live in a one bedroom one bath that I enjoy. Anytime I call for maintenance or call the office for anything in my apartment it is taken care of immediately. Maintenance is always friendly and the office staff is always professional and courteous. I would highly recommend anyone looking in the River Ridge area to consider Citrus Creek Apartments.
