Review I have lived at Artesia for almost a year now. The staff is fabulous!!!!! I am always greeted by name and with a smile:).They go above and beyond to create a good vibe and I am a very satisfied resident!


By Ashley H., Jan 21, 2019 from Apartments

World-class customer service! I LOVE living at 1st Lake’s Artesia Apartment Homes. The staff, notably Phil, Hillary and Annalise, have been so helpful during the move-in process and have been very timely in accommodating to a few minor requests I’ve had. In addition to the world-class customer service at Artesia, I like living here because of the amenities. The off-leash dog park is a great outdoor space, the fitness center is top of the line, and the communal swimming area is comparable to that of a resort. The units themselves are spacious, clean, and boast high-end finishes. If you’re in the market for a new apartment home, be sure to check out 1st Lake’s Artesia Home Apartments!

I recently visited & toured Artesia & really saw how my friends were Living the Good Life” there! They live in a two bedroom, two bath, Indigo floorplan. The guest bathroom was SO SPACIOUS! Guests will not feel cramped or uncomfortable in this large guest bath or bedroom. There was also TONS of natural light throughout the apartment home. All of the appliances & finishes were upgraded to match the luxury living the community offers. I also loved meeting the Artesia team! Their Property Manager, Phil, & Assistant Property Manager, Hillary were so professional & friendly. They were excited to give me a tour of their community & tell me more about what Covington had to offer, such as biking the Tammany Trace while I was visiting friends. It was clear how proud they were of their beautiful community, which made me love it even more too! They also pointed out if my friends were to refer me to live there they’d receive a referral bonus & I’d have access to bike & movie rentals as a resident! I fell in love with their gorgeous Clubhouse, Business Center, Pool, Grilling Areas, & Fitness Center. Every corner of this community has a luxurious touch. I highly suggest renting an apartment home here so you can also “Live the Good Life at Artesia”!

Thank you for making our move from downsizing from a 4 bedroom home to a 2 bedroom apartment a much more pleasant experience that we thought it would be. From the beginning process it has been an easy transition...the actual moving not so much! The grounds are beautiful and very well maintained, as I notice workers around every day and they are courteous and helpful...I see they work hard and I appreciate their efforts. The office personnel are welcoming and extremely willing to accommodate our requests. We look forward to enjoying our new experience in apartment living! Thank you all so much.
