Resident Reviews

Average Rating (4.4/5)

By Nannette Keller, Jun 02, 2022 from Google

This review is based solely upon the excellent customer service provided to me by Chris. I initially contacted the office via telephone and Chris listened and answered the questions that I had about the available apartment. Later in the day I visited the office and Chris provided an additional description of the unit. I was not able to view any unit nor any portion of the complex; I only saw the office.

Moved into a 1 bed 1 bath 3rd floor unit here in July 2021. Location is the biggest reason why I chose Lost Bayou and is probably the only reason I would choose them again. It’s located in a decent, quaint, and overall quiet area. The apartment itself was ample for me and I was able to make it feel like home, but honestly it is decent at most. It’s kind of outdated to be totally honest. For the price you pay I think it’s fair to expect a little more/better. But home is what you make it and it wasn’t bad at all. I left in October 2021 because of major damages due to Hurricane Ida. I was still expected to pay the full rent to continue staying in my majorly damaged unit. I felt there was a lack of adequate communication with the property management during and post-storm. When they knocked down the damaged walls, they didn’t notify me of when and it was frustrating being left with the mess they left behind after each time, feeling like I could’ve been prepared had they told me in advance. I’ve had to persistently call them to knock out the moldy wall in my bedroom which they forgot to do the first time. They had supposedly tarped the roof but it was leaking in several spots, streams on the downpour days. It was too much to continue dealing with and just unacceptable. I had to go and felt like they wanted me gone too. At the least, they refunded September’s rent and the security deposit through check via mail.

The maintenance staff and property manager are amazing. The current maintenance person, Ash, and the property manager, Jessica, make an amazing team.. They are the best team here yet in my 9+ years living here. Both of them really care about the tenants as people and residents. They are always willing to talk to me, hear any comments about the property and act upon any needs that I or other residents express. This is a small community, which is pretty quiet and very safe. I love calling the Lost Bayou home.

Did a 7 month lease here from 2015-2016, liked that the short lease was offered as it was my first place renting alone. Felt safe for me fresh out of high school and enjoyed the pool. The maintenance man and front desk lady was always nice. Sometimes people at the pool were out past “quiet time” and didnt notice the daycare next door that would get loud but overall great clean apartment.

I have lived her at Lost Bayou for the past year, definitely one of the best I have rented from. Very friendly staff, nice sized one bedroom apartments, great amenities, outstanding location to everything. This is a great complex to live at if needing a simple one bedroom apartment!


By Aaron Vincent, Mar 28, 2016 from Google

Very quiet and well maintained from the outside. Old and very outdated on the inside. Painted over everything including bathtub that did not work, 14" of counter space total in the kitchen, 1 drawer in the kitchen, very thin walls, , floors and ceilings. Air conditioner has seen better days, freezes over due to lack of maintaining. Air filters never changed in the year I lived there. Office is NEVER open.

I've lived in Lost Bayou for about 5 months now, and am really happy with the apartment. The community is quiet, it's super close to my gym, and access to I-10 is fairly quick when I'm heading to work. The current property manager is amazing and always incredibly helpful when anything comes up. I also love the little sunroom that comes in each apartment- it was the perfect place for my Christmas tree and is now the perfect place for my other plants. I actually heard about Lost Bayou through a friend, and would recommend it to other friends who wanted to live in Metairie.

I live at lost bayou apartments and I love it. It is well maintained. Very quiet and quaint. Exactly what I need.


By Linh Ly, Dec 19, 2014 from Google

Maintenance is well kept in this area. Grass is always cut and perfectly well kept also. One thing I absolutely love is that every time I call for maintenance, the work is always done in a very timely manner. Every one around here is very nice and willing to help you.
