I came for a tour and Jordan and Charity were AMAZING


By Kevin Walsh, Feb 07, 2021 from Google

Great apartment community run by nice people. Service is excellent and the maintenance guy is fantastic. I love living here.


By Krishna Sajja, Jan 10, 2021 from Google

Overall, apartments are relatively good for what you can get in New Orleans. If money and distance from the city aren’t an issue for you, then these are definitely recommended. For the 1500 range/ mo for a one bed / one bath in an industrial neighborhood 25 minutes from the city, it just didn’t seem worth it. Lived here just under one year. Pros: - Safety - Garage parking - Spacious units - Management - timely service, easily accessible Cons: - Apartments seem to have absolutely no insulation - I can hear every neighbor’s conversation from shared walls. Speakers / tv on the lowest volume will surely bring neighbors knocking. Foot steps on the floor above you sound like thunder. - Numerous plumbing issues. My laundry room has smelled like sewage ever since moving in. The tap water also smells like sewage. Although maintenance is good, I had backed up sewage soaking my carpet and flooring for a week before this was fixed. - Only one trash drop off and it’s not easily accessible to all apartments. - Gym doesn't have much equipment / weights. - Lastly, keep in mind there are designated smoking and non-smoking buildings. What doesn’t make sense is that non-smoking units cost more.

My stay at Bella Ridge North, was surprisingly pleasant! I leased the apartment, sight unseen back in February, and I was absolutely delighted when I arrived with the movers from Florida. The apartment was spacious, very well laid out with exceptional finish for an apartment in this price range. There was much more cabinet and storage space in the kitchen than I was expecting. The management of the complex is knowledgeable, conscientious and very responsive and efficient. Any issues I had were immediately resolved. I highly recommend Bella Ridge North to anyone searching for a nice quiet well maintained apartment!

Luci was so helpful!


By shama patel, Jul 16, 2020 from Google

This review is on the tour and application process. Luci answered all my questions. She is very patient and gave me detailed answers. She was quick in responding to emails too and I did not feel I was annoying with all that I had to ask. This place was the only apartment complex that told me they sanitize the rooms after viewing which means they do care a lot. So far so good. thank you. The apartment complex is beautiful too.


By Chelsea Laurel, May 25, 2020 from Google

I love this apartment! Our tour guide Luci was incredible with a warming and inviting spirit. She’s very knowledgeable about the property


By Madison Kaiser, Apr 10, 2020 from Google

I just left Bella Ridge after nearly two years due to a job relocation, and I really enjoyed my time in this apartment. I rarely heard my neighbors (really only when someone was walking by outside in the hall). The place was quiet, the parking garage is a HUGE perk, everything was clean and nice. The fitness center and pool area are kind of small but the complex itself is small, so this was only an issue if one of the machines was out of order. Bella Ridge is a quick and convenient drive to New Orleans after hopping on nearby Earhart Expressway. Overall, I came to Louisiana from out of state and I felt safe and at home in my apartment here.


By Renetta Wells, Mar 01, 2020 from Google

I been living here at Bella Ridge North Apartments for long over a year now. The office and maintenance staff is amazing. I love that they really care. Very clean and well kept property. I recently dropped my diamond earring down my bathroom sink. I called the office and Elizabeth jumped on my problem right away. She sent her maintenance staff up who name is Harry. Harry done an excellent job retrieving my earring.. I love Bella Ridge North. Now you guys, Please come check out Bella Ridge South, The New Luxury side. I promise, you won't be disappointed. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to live here on your property. 😘

I recently had to leave Bella Ridge North and was sad to go. The office staff is amazing and very professional. The maintenance team address all concerns timely and are warm and professional. The property is always clean and the apartments are HUGE and breathtaking. I love all the residents including their furry friends. I definitely recommend making Bella your future home!
