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

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


By Calvin Gros, Nov 19, 2016 from Google

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.


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 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!


By Jason Wade, May 21, 2014 from Google

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, 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.


By J A, May 19, 2014 from Google

This is a great facility, we are located next to Earhart Expressway so you can be downtown in 20 minutes or less. Semi-closed, very safe and secure, Beautiful grounds and each building has a pool so it's never over crowded. I love it here and recommend it to everyone. - Satisfied Resident :)


By Brea Lamastus, May 17, 2014 from Google

I have been at Chestnut Creek for about 2 months. I chose this property after an extensive search in the area due to its great location, square footage, and beautiful grounds. The one bedroom apt that I am in is approx 900 sq ft and has TONS of storage. The grounds are beautiful and always being kept up and/or updated. I have had a couple of issues that I needed maintenance to attend to and each time, I received same day service. I have not used the pool yet, but it is a great perk and seems to be popular amongst the neighbors. The location that I am in is extremely quiet. I rarely hear neighbors. The manager, Sherry, and Assistant Manager, LaShawn, are great to work with and get to know their tenants by their first names due to the small size of this particular community. I work at Ochsner and can get to work in 10 minutes by jumping right onto the nearby Earhart Expressway. I also get a discount as an Ochsner employee. I love that the tenants are constantly walking/running around the community for exercise. It has actually inspired me to do the same. Also, the driveway closest to Chestnut Creek closes at 7pm each night and forces anyone entering or leaving after that time to pass by a guard shack as an extra crime deterrent. I feel very safe here. I have had a very positive experience since moving here..... Can't say enough positive things about it. Highly recommended.


By Moe Zeidan, May 16, 2014 from Google

I've been living here at Chestnut for about two months now and it is by far the best apartment complex I have ever lived in. I've lived in Metairie, Kenner, and even New Orleans and the courteousness from all the employees and cleanliness of the community here in the Chestnut Creek Apartments are by far the best I've ever seen. For example, I reported having a problem with plumbing one morning and within an hour I had a maintenance person at my door ready to fix the problem. Pets are allowed and you can conveniently pay your rent online at there website. I would recommend this place to everyone and anyone.


By Jennifer Franchebois Guidry, May 16, 2014 from Google

Between my husband and I, we have collectively lived in these apartments for 5 years which should attest to our experience. These apartments are reasonably priced for the area, the maintenance staff is fantastic and always respond to our requests promptly. We have been here through changes in management and still feel like the customer service makes the difference.


By Adriana Pérez Washington, May 15, 2014 from Google

Overall, my experience living at Chestnut Creek Apts have met and exceeded my expectations. Anytime I had an issue with after hour maintenance or questions about renewal of my lease, the leasing office has always been prompt and helpful. I would recommend this property to those who seek a quiet place to live and is in close proximity to shops, restaurants and gyms with a great leasing staff.


By Chris Gugisberg, Aug 31, 2013 from Google

With my work schedule I don't have time to deal with apartment problems. Chestnut Creek solved all the problems I was having. With every amenity I need and more. The best part of Chestnut Creek is that I don't have to ever worry about maintenance, bad accounting or any of the other problems I've had with landlords in the past.
