Resident Reviews

Average Rating (4.9/5)

By jo mo, Mar 06, 2018 from Google

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.


By Juliet Pappalardo, Dec 18, 2017 from Google

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.

Peaceful and quiet!


By Raven Omuemu, Jun 19, 2017 from Google

I recently moved to Bella Ridge. When finding a place to live in the New Orleans area, I wanted somewhere peaceful, modern, and convenient. Bella Ridge is tailored to meet all of my expectations AND MORE! Ryshita is beyond amazing, and made my moving process easy! The entire staff is courteous! I live in a one-bedroom and it's really spacious. My closet is huge! The bathroom supersedes all expectations of apartment living. There are dry cleaning services, movie rentals available, bikes to rent out for the day, etc. The location is perfect! The apartments are on the outskirts of the city in River Ridge and are surrounded by many places to dine and shop. Walmart is about 3 mins away. I couldn't have asked for a better transition to the New Orleans area! Bella Ridge embodies convenience. I LOVE IT!


By anonymous, Jun 14, 2017 from Apartment Ratings

Everything from the service to living to maintenance has been amazing. Bella Ridge also has great community. We relocated here and it has definitely felt like home. The apartments are really luxury. Granite countertops, tile and laminate flooring, beautiful kitchen and bathrooms and very spacious.


By Charles Ray, May 29, 2017 from Facebook

We were looking for a safe, nice, well kept apartment after a recent move. Bella Ridge was a perfect location conveniently located to the airport, shopping and restaurants. ------- and the other staff members were welcoming and always willing to help. The pool, parking and other amenities they offer are awesome. Just what we were looking for and then some. I highly recommend this to others looking for a nice place to live.

By Jeff, Feb 27, 2017 from Our Website

New apartments. Pretty quiet, had no problems so far. Everything works.


By Liam O'Flaherty, Feb 16, 2017 from Google

Great secluded apartments that happen to be close to the Elmwood shopping center and restaurants. These apartments are high class and are nicely priced. Parking is amazing with the multi level garage with catwalk access from garage to your apartment. The interiors of these apartments are unparalleled to the rest of apartment living in the area. The pool, gym, and amenities are above and beyond. This is truly the epitome of how New Orleans living should be.


By Philhawes, Feb 03, 2017 from Apartment Ratings

Excellant apartment, everything has been wonderful. Best apartment I have ever had.


By Corey Pellerin, Sep 21, 2016 from Facebook

It really feels like home.. as if I've lived here all my life.


By jhditch@gmail.com, Jul 12, 2016 from Apartment Ratings

Great Apartments. My wife and I have lived here for about 1 year. When we visited, the staff was incredibly accommodating and did not pressure us into anything. We love to location, being that it is so close to work for us and close to all the shopping we need as well. Neighbors seemed very friendly and the overall property was very clean and beautiful. Great pool and gym as well. This place feels like luxury in every way. Favorite place we've lived in this city so far!


By TabH, Jul 06, 2016 from Apartment Ratings
