Heather at Chestnut Creek was very friendly, understanding, and patient in every interaction I had with her. She was always willing and ready to help. She knew every answer to my questions. She made my appointment search process go very smoothly.

I love living here. The office workers are so nice and when you have a work order they move so quickly. If I ever need anything usually it's fixed the same day. It's quiet, they keep the grounds clean, never any drama. It's really been a blessing. <3

The full 411 from a 2 yr resident, moved out because of job relocation. Since google only lets you do general stars ill add my two cents a different way Maintenance: (3/5stars)- Maintenance was always taking care of. From ground upkeep, to if you had a problem they would almost immediately come to fix it. I gave 3/5 because the actual upkeep of the apartment complex was horrible. About 2 weeks after we moved in, we noticed water damage to our ceiling in 2 different areas. One in our bedroom and the other in the closet. The bedroom water damage was clearly a roof issue. We decided to ride by the complex from a far to get a look and it is in terrible condition. This was further explained when our bedroom started to leak during heavy rains. Each time we called, maintenance would come and repaint it but never actually go and patch the whole in the roof until after about 7 months later of constant complaining and temporary fixes. Furthermore, we had this same problem with the closet in the study room except it was worse. That closet is a closed dark area used for storage. We barely used it so when we opened it to see that there was just as much worst water damage. The ceiling was black. we didnt know if it was mold or mildew. All we knew was that it was bad. They received a nice email from us and still did nothing. After bout 3 emails with the threat of a law suit, they came and redid the closet, simply by taking out repainting it again. Its a year and a half later, we just looked and the ceiling is back to how it was before. Looking moldy or mildewy and its just smells stuffy in there. Managerial (3/5 stars): 1st lake company could do a lot to revamp their apartments but i'm not sure if they don't care because they are a monopoly or they just actually might not care. The staff is okay. I've never really had a problem until it was time for them to come repair the ceiling but they addressed it so i cant complain. The only other pet peeve I have is on the days rent is due they'll take extra lunch breaks so that your rent will be late forcing you to have a $50 late charge. During initial move-in i did feel bamboozled only because the property manager told us our electricity was included, but it wasn't. Living space 3/5 stars : I mean, it is overpriced and outdated. Carpet floors throughout. small vinyl space in the study. Old cabinets and appliances. Our security system didn't work at all because it was so old. I feel like every apartment has bugs so, cockroaches weren't a BIG deal but they were present at times. I notice East Nola has GREAT apartment living spaces but the actual living area or that side of town is a bad place. If 1st lake could just make some minor upgrades it'd be 10x better. Parking was GREAT on weekends. But by living with working people everyone is out at 8 am and back around 5 pm which is kind of standard so after 6pm parking gets a little crazy. Creeks 5/5 stars- Great living community for couples or small families. Def a temporary place to live until you get on your feet or just need something decent and safe. you can walk around at night no one will bother you. As stated its literally working people, no kids or horseplay. People go to work and go inside. No loud music. The pool is the pool of course. But for the most part SUPER SAFE!! a HUGE BLESSING!

Faboulous. I have lived here for seven years and it is amazing but the parking is a little tight.

Wonderful place to live! Great management! Very safe! Very spacious apartments!


By Jerra A., Sep 01, 2015 from Apartments

The Creeks I'm in a cramped apartment, with my husband and son. We have a girl on the way and this apartment is so loud. The walls are thin and I have to constantly complain about the neighbors noise and the midnight pool parties. I pay a healthy $1200 per month for this two bedroom and am at my wits end over the absurdities. When I complain and name the people responsible for disturbances the manager responds by sending us all warnings!! I need a new place because I can't stand living in this frat house. My son is constantly awakened by my upstairs neighbors fights and stomping at 12-3 in the morning.


By michelle T., Jul 29, 2015 from Apartments

apartments I been living here since 2007 my first apartment, it have a warn feel to it at first i was scared to live by myself but after my first night here i knew i was home. its a friendly and safe place i think because the staff actually look out for you. If something not right or out of sorts they let you know in a heartbeat and that make me feel safe and not to mention the veiw i got overlooking the garden, beautiful in the spring so if you are looking for a place to call home and to make you feel safe at the same time The Oaks of River ridge is your home away from home.

I've lived at chestnut creek almost a year and can't say enough great things about it. Wonderful staff, beautiful landscaping, adore my apt!!! Highly recommend


By Miracle Gaines, May 30, 2014 from Google

I have only lived at Chestnut Creek for the month and a half, but I already love it! The set up of my 2 bedroom apartment is what led me to make the decision to live here. Immediately upon entering the apartment it felt like home to me. The staff is really friendly. They handle all maintenance request really quickly. The landscaping is beautiful. Overall, I would recommend this place to anyone looking to rent an apartment in the RIver Ridge area.


By Jacinta L, May 29, 2014 from Google

By Kristina DiGiovanni, May 26, 2014 from Google

I moved in Chest Creek at the beginning of this year. The staff is always helpful and made my move-in process very easy. The grounds are kept beautifully and it's very peaceful. I've thoroughly enjoyed living here!


By Brannon Paulk, May 21, 2014 from Google

I have not lived here very long, but so far everything has been excellent. The people that work in the front office are very helpful and awesome people. The grounds are well kept and the community is very safe. I would recommend any and everyone to live here no matter your age!

Thus far, after more than one year of residing at Chestnut Creek Apartments, I have not had any bad experiences. The rent is the only reason it does not get five stars, but, then again, who likes paying rent? But you do get "free" DVD rentals and the location is very nice as it is literally across the street/walking distance from my gym, restaurants, dive bars, gas stations, and convenience stores. You can hop on Airheart or go up a block to Airline...so it is pretty convenient for access to all parts of the greater New Orleans area, as well as downtown itself (takes about 15 minutes to get to downtown New Orleans). Bottom line, I do not plan on moving out of Chestnut Creek anytime soon.


By Veronica Rodriguez, May 20, 2014 from Google

I've been in this community for 3 years and I love it. It is centrally located; everything is only a 5 minute or 15 minute drive away. Near shopping centers, movie theaters, restaurants, fast food, etc. The staff is really friendly, and their maintenance excellent. One call and they are at your apt right away.
