Just Moved In, Will Update Later It's just been a few weeks but so far, I love it here. Anything I have needed, the staff has been on top of it and I deeply appreciate that. Let's me know I picked the right place to live. Only complaint was that the cleaning crew didn't clean the windows in the sunroom before I moved in. The rest has been a breeze. I definitely feel taken care of.

The maintenance staff and property manager are good. Unfortunately they seem to have high turnover, and the current maintenance person, Beck, is he best yet! I feel safe here & it feels like home. Just don't live near the pool or Lemon street on the first floor because it can get loud. Otherwise it is pretty quiet here.

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 15, 2017 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 Old and very outdated on the inside.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.

The neighborhood is very quiet, peaceful, and safe. The location is great because you are close to the interstate, shopping and everything. If you are looking for a safe and quiet place to live I recommend looking here.

Pretty Nice I've been at Lost Bayou for a year next month. I have enjoyed my stay thus far. I have a studio which has plenty of space for one or two people. All utilites are included which is very convenient. It is mostly a community of mature adults with few children so it is fairly quiet. There's rarely ever an issue with parking. The only thing I'm not too fond of is the outdated tile and popcorn walls as well as the fact that when my upstairs neighbor smokes it travels through my vents. Management and maintenance are very helpful and always respond to any issues in a timely fashion, but they haven't come up with a permanent solution for the smoke issue.

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.

I'm a new resident here at Lost Bayou and I have to a minute and brag!!!! From day one, I knew this was where I was going to live. The manager Jennifer is so helpful and pleasant. She's truly makes you feel at home. As a mother of a 6 year old, I wanted something SAFE, CLEAN, and CONVENIENT to the city! I get all three and more! If you're looking for somewhere to move... DON'T pass this great place up!

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.

This place is wonderful! Great deal for the price, and very great service! Customer service and maintenance and oustanding! Very quiet and calm area.


By Shelly Serpas, Dec 18, 2014 from Facebook

I absolutely love it here. It is so quiet and peaceful. The staff is always so nice and helpful. When something needs to be fixed it is always taken care of that day if possible. Everywhere u need to go is within 5 miles or so. I highly recommend Lost Bayou.


By Lindsey Dupuy, Dec 17, 2014 from Google

This apartment complex is a hidden gem of Metairie! I just re-signed a lease and couldn't be happier! The customer service and maintenance staff are outstanding!
