I've been here for 5 years and have had a great experience. Would definitely recommend this property.


By Domonique Lewis, Jan 12, 2019 from Google

The landscaping on the grounds are beautifully kept. The community is quiet for the most part. The exit gate on the east side of the apartment is hardly ever operable. The gate is broken 9x out of 10 the office staff doesn't seem to care.

I lived there for a year.Loved the 3rd floor high ceilings.Never had a problem jus wish we had reserved parking getting off at night you never know where you gonna park. Emily was very helpful

Well we moved in a couple days ago. What can I say, our experience has been great from coming in and asking about apartment for rent to the actual move in. The staff is very professional and helpful with any of the questions we have had. Apartment very clean and comfortable.We haven't been to the pool and fitness center yet. I'm sure we going to enjoy them.We love it here ??????


By Maria_O282, Oct 19, 2018 from Apartment Ratings

Well my husband and I just moved in. We already Love it here, the whole process was great. The staff is very welcoming and professional. Our first night was quiet and peaceful. I know were going to continue to Love it here. Ms. Tricia is very professional and polite. Answered all questions So yeah I am really happy being a tenant here at Citrus Creek East.


By Pamela Ussin, Aug 31, 2018 from Google

This is a really awesome place to live. I am a single parent with 2 teens and I feel comfortable that I can leave them and not be worried. The staff is great and friendly. Once my daughter couldn't get the car started and the maintenance guy dropped what he was doing to help her. If there are any issues, they are corrected immediately. This is an absolutely great place to live. I wish they had 3 & 4 bedrooms and/or townhouses, I would live here forever!!!!


By anonymous, Aug 05, 2018 from Apartment Ratings

I have been in Citrus Creek East for 3yrs. I love it here. I have 3 kids and I can turn my back and let them be kids. The staff is always nice and helpful. A maintenance guy even helped my daughter start the car when the battery went dead. If you're considering Citrus Creak East, don't consider it, just do it!!!


By Elizabeth Chaisson, Apr 12, 2018 from Google

I have lived at Citrus Creek East Apartments for over 1 year and have had no problems. Maintenance staff is always quick to respond to work orders, office staff is always very helpful, and enjoy the location of the community.

One of the best 1st lake properties around. Although rent varies month to month. Lots of people make it challenging. Too many speed bumps. Yet an overall safe area. Parking is always plentiful whether in the lot or on the road.

Amazing Complex and Staff This place is exactly what I was looking for. Its kept clean and staff are so helpful. Collin Jonson was amazing!!! She took the time to explain the whole process, toured me around the complex and broke everything down so that I could really understand each document before signing my lease. I would recommend this complex to anyone, its really worth what you pay. I don't regret choosing this complex as my home, and my kids love it too.


By Dale Davidson, Jul 18, 2017 from Google

Very nice apartments and safe area. Enjoy!


By Hailey Parks, Jun 06, 2017 from Our Website

Great neighborhood. Very clean pool & common areas. Nice little quiet space in the garden. Clean, carpeted apartments. Overall a great place to live!


By Ashley Raion, May 17, 2017 from Google

Moved in February and agree that the staff is extremely helpful and professional. Neat grounds, very quiet and speedy response from maintenance. Wish I would have moved in sooner!


By R. Lambert, Mar 15, 2017 from Apartment Ratings

I have lived in both apartments and houses so I have awareness of both worlds. I am very pleased with Citrus Creek Apartments over all other apartments that I have ever lived in during my past history. Coming from a 2-story 2700 sq. ft. house, this is just as nice. I had to get something just as nice as my previous house when I relocated back here to Louisiana from another state. Citrus Creek meets my needs with space, ambiance, peace and quiet along with safety. All personnel I have encountered have been very courteous during my time of needs. Warren and the other maintenance crew members are very nice as well as Karen in the office.

I moved to back to Louisiana in 2012 . I'm a mother of three boys who were in school at the time. I chose Citrus Creek site unseen and after reading many reviews. You will read some negatives but, I can assure you , if you have a family or pets this is the safest and best place for you . I have been here through a few managers but the quality of maintenance, " I love Dwayne" and the crew hasn't changed. I was able to let my boys go outside in peace and fun activities are in walking distance from your apartment. There were some issues in the apartment when I first moved in wasn't laid properly and some of my appliances were old. Some have been changed out and others I just lived with. There is a cozy fireplace, garden tubs after a hard day of working and relaxing pools around the property. Buy your own grill and roll it out to the pool as you may not want to use what they have on the property, we were never given any issues about it . It's a great community . The office host events for the residence , pets and children. Two things I did not like , residents from next door (Palmetto Creek) and ours not picking up after their pet and residents not properly disposing trash when we have several receptacles around the property. However, if I could do it again , this is where I would be . Make sure you place notices early when you are moving out so that your lease is not automatically renewed. Great Staff through all the changes...You will be pleased!!!

its is very goog i love it


By Jon Beskow, Oct 05, 2015 from Google

We have rented here twice. We always keep coming back. We moved to rent a house because we had a small one on the way, but then the house we rented after a year the landlord decided to sell so we were in a pickle. We had to move out in a month and find a new place with a baby!!! So we came back to Citrus Creek. Never had a bad experience. We were lucky because they had one apartment left for rent and we took it. The area is beautiful and well kept. There is a walking track which is awesome! Plus on site gym. Very quiet and the management is fast to take care of any concerns or problems we might have. I highly recommend renting here. Pet friendly and kid friendly. The location is great because you are not far from great shopping and great restaurants. Oh and they have recently started to do fun events like food trucks and farmers markets on site!!! Love it here!! They have also made a lot of updates to the grounds.

I have lived here for over a year with my husband and two toddlers and we love it. We will be renewing our lease for another term. The front desk is very friendly and helpful, maintenance responds quickly and does a good job. My only complaint would be the pools are not kept completely clean. I think the apartments are beautiful and the area is great!


By Fbr---ette, Sep 30, 2015 from Apartment Ratings

I have lived here for over a year with my husband and two small children. We love it! We are staying here as a stepping stone before we buy a house and we couldn't be happier. Friendly customer service, quick maintenance, and beautiful complex.

Quality of Living I never dreamed I would be back in an apartment again. But life changes brought me here. Here to my apartment that I now call HOME. The most important thing I was looking for was a safe environment. This is a gated complex and has an advanced alarm system in my apt. I feel safe coming and going at any hour of the day. There are also security monitors installed around the complex allowing me to feel safe outside with my grandchildren and when I exercise or play tennis. Streams run throughout the complex making it very relaxing to sit outdoors. The pool area is spa like with a nice cabanna area. The grounds are always kept immaculate. Never a piece of trash is found. The apartment office staff is extremely helpful and pleasant. These are only just a few reason I call this HOME.

Citrus Creek East I have liv here for seven years and I have never experienced any issues. The staff is great and the owners are always improving the property.


By Sharika M., Aug 07, 2015 from Apartments

Spacious and Convenient I moved here a few weeks ago and I'm enjoying my place so far....I met the maintenance guy who is very helpful and the staff very friendly! The grounds are beautifully manicured too!
