I had to move to the New Orleans area within two week of accepting a new job. After searching in the city and finding nothing that felt safe, I stumbled upon Breakers. I wasn't able to visit the property, but the friendly staff and amenities swayed me that this is the place I should be. While I was initially concerned about my commute, it turned out to be close to everything without the headaches of living in the city. It is a very quiet community and area.

#A207. We have been living in the Breakers apartment complex since 2011. The complex is very nice, clean, and secure. The location is perfect: not far from New Orleans, Lake Pontchartrain, City Park. The staff is friendly and very responsive: whenever we had a problem, it would be fixed promptly. Our unit is big, 2bd/2bth with a washer and dryer inside and a lot of closets. We like living here and would recommend it to our friends.

Breakers is a friendly, conveniently located, newer apartment complex, with a security gate. The insulation has apparently been a bit weathered, and the windows are the typical, single-glazed, aluminum-framed complex type, but most of the amenities are of a higher caliber. The staff and maintenance crew are the best! I thoroughly enjoy living in the Breakers! email@example.com

This is the perfect apartment complex. I live in a one bedroom, and it is huge with more than enough closet space. It also comes with regular sized washer and dryer machine. The complex also has a security gate, which is an added bonus. I definitely recommend living here!

I've been living her for about a year and have had no issues. Every maintenance request has been attended to quickly and they listen to other feedback given. Every time I enter the office the staff is professional and friendly. The helped us out tremendously when getting into the apartment. The grounds are always kept neat and manicured. I've had no problems with neighbors, everyone is nice and theirs only a few of us in the building. The pool is a lovely bonus.

307-I've loved living here for almost a year! The staff is professional and nice, the grounds are kept neat and beatiful and the apartments are spacious. Having the security gate is a great bonus. The neighbors are nice and quiet, no problems there. They respond quickly to your requests and are open to suggestions for how to make living there better. The location is nice; not to far into Metairie close the Lakefront and downtown.

The Breakers is one of the nicest complexes in the city and conveniently located near stores, restaurants and malls in Metairie and New Orleans. It is very small and quiet, clean and nicely landscaped. The grounds are well lit by bright lamp posts as well as bright lights by the entrances to each apartment. It is also a gated community for added safety. Even though tenants do not have assigned spaces for parking, it isn't a problem. The rooms and closets in the apartments are very spacious. The staff members, both in the leasing office and maintenance, are very friendly and helpful.
By anonymous, Jan 22, 2014 from Apartment Ratings
I just signed my 3rd lease in November. I love the Breakers. Location is perfect. Not too far in to Metairie where you have to constantly fight traffic, convenient to downtown New Orleans. The apartments are enormous with high ceilings. Washer, dryer and dishwasher in unit. Huge bathtub. Tons of closet space. The staff always responds quickly to any requests. They are all very friendly and go above and beyond!

I made an appointment to view this community. The apartment was very spacious. Lots of closet space and it had washer dryer in which I was looking for. The only thing they had available was coming in 3weeks in which I was unable to hold off that long. I would have leased here for sure if they would have had something within my time frame of moving. The grounds were clean, they also offered access gates and a swimming pool. The leasing agent Lorraine was pleasant and knowledgeable regarding the area as well as other apartment communities around her. She kindly referred me to another 1stlake property where I also toured and actually rented.

I just moved to Surfrider from out of state and so far so good. Everything in my apartment has been pleasant. The apartments are very clean and kept well. I love having a washer & dryer in my apartment such a convenience. The maintenance personnel are very fast. I had some very small minimal issues when I moved in however they came out the next day to fix them immediately. I would highly recommend the community to anyone of my friends or anyone looking to move into the area. It is very close to shopping centers & easy access to the freeways.

I've lived at the Breakers for a year and I love it! Anytime I needed anything the staff was right on it. The staff is A , friendly and professional. I would definitely recommend this as a place to move to for anyone.

My husband and I have had such a wonderful time living here at The Breakers that we hate to move, but the time has come for us. The staff are always friendly and willing to help, and our neighbors are just fantastic. It's a small, quiet complex and it seems like most people keep to themselves. Although there were a few minor maintenance issues (during particularly heavy rains our roof had a leak!), they were quickly corrected. All in all, a great place to live and we will miss it.

I am writing this because of the 3 1/2 years i have been in the Surfrider Apartments and If I were not buying a new home I would spend the rest of my days here. What a wonderful group of Managers very thoughtful and pleasent tol talk to any issues that came up they were on top of it and it was taken care of. Any one in the Greater New Orleans looking of a great apartment and excellent Management this is the Place to live!

I lived at Surfrider for 2 years during my Graduate studies at UNO in a one bedroom. The price was a little steep, but most rents were high after Katrina. Overall I thought it was a very nice place to live. All appliances were nice (a little small on the stove/oven side) and the bathrooms were spacious. There was a TON of closet space which proved to be a great thing to have. I'm talking 4 separate storage areas. Despite what others have said, I had no problems at all with the management. Anytime I had an issue with AC or plumbing they would send someone over soon. Their office is right down the road and it makes for an easy rent drop off. There were a few negative things that I experience while living there. I was on the first floor and noticed that the noise from upstairs carried down more than I would have liked. The bedrooms tended to get much hotter than other areas in the apartment and I wonder if the insulation was not as good as it could have been. The apartment sits on Lake Ave which ironically turns into a water logged street every time it rains for longer than 2 hours. The water level would get so high during certain down pours that you really couldn't leave the apartment unless you had a truck or SUV that was high enough off the ground. The worst issue I experienced was when the plumbing backed up from both upstairs and downstairs and caused quite a mess. Thankfully it stayed on the bathroom tile and was easy to clean up, but they had to send someone over to fix it. I think it was an isolated incident but it s something to watch out for. Despite all that I never experienced anything that would prevent me from recommending this place to anyone.

Nice location, close to downtown/highway access but no flooding in/around the streets. Apartments are nice, gated. Management is horrid... this fat f&*(@& named Eden has run the place down and usually deflects any sort of criticism. But outside that, pretty costly (1200/mo) but nice sized and good tenants.
By anonymous, Mar 28, 2006 from Apartment Ratings
The Breakers is definitely the nicest apartment complex on Lake Avenue (new, gated, well-kept, large apartments, etc.) It also is built a little higher up than the other apartments though the first floor still flooded a few feet during Hurricane Katrina. The management company (1st Lake Properties) isn't the best (very greedy and stingy) but other than that it was a really nice and safe place. It's overpriced in my opinion as there are plenty of other nice and safe apartments on Lake Avenue. Again the amenites are great, but it just wasn't worth the price they charge, especially went they raise the rent so much each year.
By anonymous, Jan 05, 2006 from Apartment Ratings
I lived in Surfrider which is the cheaper alternative to the Breakers but under the same mgmt. The Mgmt staff is swamped. Every time I went to the office to get a laundry key the office manager barely had time to talk with all the phone calls.However, the biggest complaint was the small size of the kitchen and the fact that you had to go to the office to get a laundry key (20 each) even though the office is always closed whenever I am trying to do laundry. But other than that,a great cheap place to live

This complex is in a great location. It is the newest complex in the area. Very convenient to downtown. The office staff is friendly and handles problems quickly. My apartment is large and comfortable. Highly recommended.
By anonymous, Mar 28, 2002 from Apartment Ratings
I´ve lived there for over three years. I´ve never had a problem that wasn´t fixed immediately. Wish it was cheaper!
