I Loved the Experience with the Staff. Jenn made sure everything was how I wanted it upon my move in Date. I'm really enjoying my new place of residence.


By Robert Clay, Nov 08, 2018 from Google

I have enjoyed the Bella Ridge experience. They are quick to resolve any issue you may have. My neighbors have been very respectful and friendly. The management team has several events throughout the year like passing out doughnuts as we left for work. Snowballs in the wonderful dog park. Wine tasting which was a lot of fun. The biggest enjoyment for me was the swimming pool that is kept clean and the cabanas where you can lay out to relax. My overall experience at Bella Ridge has been GREAT.

The staff assisted me and my family in a very professional manner.

By Renee Landry, Jul 14, 2018 from Google

Terri Torres was our rep for Bella Ridge. Terri was awesome! She carefully and patiently listened to our needs and situation when we first met her 3 months ago. Our daughter was listed for a lung transplant at Ochsner, so we did not have an exact move in date. Terri was empathetic, caring, understanding. Before we even talked about the apartment she truly wanted to know about our situation. Wow! Customer service at its best! Terri truly cared about us the moment we sat down with her. Terri then professionally and thoroughly explained Bella Ridge's terms, our options, and apartment availability currently and the next few months ahead. She suggested and gave addresses for other Lake 1 properties in the Elmwood Area, to visit and gauge their availability over the next few months. For the record, every rep at each complex was professional, courteous, and understanding. But Terri truly stood out. Our daughter gratefully finally got the transplant call this month. Terri remembered us, and gently, patiently, guided us through the process of leasing the property, set us up with cable, electricity, furniture, everything! Thank you so much Terri. You are a true guardian angel. You made what has been a super stressful time for our family a bit more bearable. Bella Ridge is fortunate to have such a great representative as Terri Torres. She made us feel at home. Martin & Renee Landry

New member of the Bella family! I am very happy with the friendliness and responsiveness of the staff throughout my early experiences. They have always been quick to answer any questions Ive had and were very helpful in showing various apartments to me. The apartments are very modern, have a spacious floor plan, and are just really nice overall. However, I’d say the excellent staff is the true strength of Bella. Can’t beat the covered parking situation either! Also, Terri is my new best friend now that we know that we write the same.

I currently started leaving for a month now and I just moved down from Chicago. It is a really amazing place. The apartment has super great amenities and the managing staff are pretty cool. The structure of the houses are fantastic and I mean fantastic. Hardwood floors, huge walk in closets, really large living room space plus granite and stainless kitchen. I mean, all round amazing. Also, the amenities are pretty awesome. I mean, pool, free movie rentals and they change out the movie set every month, free bike service. It is pretty great. You should come over! and give them a chance! You would not regret it. It has been an adventure so far and I am looking forward to the rest of it.


By Taylor Regira, Mar 01, 2018 from Facebook

I love living here! The staff and neighbors are awesome. We have parties for the residents which are hosted by the property and free. Would definitely recommend. Also A very safe community


By Adam Doucet, Dec 28, 2017 from Facebook

I have lived in a few apartment complexes after graduating high school, through college, and beyond. This is by far the best apartment complex I have ever visited and lived in. When I did my tour with Elizabeth, who was extremely personable and knowledgeable, I thought for sure this place was well out of my price range. When she told me the rental rates I couldn’t believe the price you pay for the value of the property. It has a great location with a great staff, and you cannot beat being able to park in a covered parking garage and walk to your apartment without ever having to worry about getting rained on while you know your vehicle is staying out of the sun. My only two complaints are that the walls scratch kind of easily and that people do not pick up after their dogs when bringing them out to relieve themselves. Near the doggy poop stations, you have such a high chance of stepping in dog poop, and it gets old really fast. Beside that, I love Bella Ridge. It may be a little high, but I believe it is worth every penny.

I currently live at Bella Ridge Apartments and enjoy it very much. The staff is kind, considerate and helpful. The grounds are very well maintained, and other residents are very nice. Any issues (very few) I have had with the apartment have been addressed immediately. The staff have gone out of their way to make us feel welcome in this community. I definitely recommend this apartment complex.

The grounds are well kept & contain every amenity. The units are spacious and beautiful and my pups LOVE the dog park! The staff are always extremely friendly and helpful. Living at Bella Ridge has been a fantastic experience.


By Mildred Dee, Nov 20, 2017 from Facebook

I absolutely adore my apartment with its clean and contemporary look, the convenience of my full size washer and dryer, and huge bathroom. My garage makes my life so easy with a short walk to my front door. I love Bella Ridge.
