I lived in this apartment complex from May 2018- January 2020. My apartment was a bottom floor middle courtyard setup. I originally looked at about 75% of the 1st Lake Properties before one of their gracious employees notified me that the Creeks had the best rates and amenities I was looking for in my budget. She pointed me specifically to Oak Creek. Life at Oak Creek was very quiet, very nice people, and kept up fairly well. The courtyard setup was kept very clean, getting landscaped numerous times during my stay. Pros: -Management of this property never gave me any issues, responded quickly, and were available. -Maintenance responded to all requests within 24 hours and left notices when they were in the apartment as to the progress/completion. -Market studies on apartments causes rent rates to rise, but the increase was only around $25 for me. -It was very nice to pay a flat rate on water, garbage, pest control. -Parking: I never had an issue parking, but depending on the time of year, the parking spots got slim. Tenants from neighbor properties were also parking here. -The Creeks complex was safe to navigate and walk in at all hours. Not in the hustle and bustle of New Orleans, butjust a quick jump on Earhart away. If you want to remain a tourist, River Ridge/Elmwood is the place to live. The complex is within 5 miles of everything you could possibly need. Restaurants in this area/Metairie will keep you from needing to go into the city unless you want to. -I'm not a pool person, but the pool area is nice. Very few tenants actually swam during my stay there. There are multiple outdoor grills to use for BBQ as well. Most of the time I saw tenants sitting by the pool at the tables reading/talking on the phone, etc. - Side-by side washer/dryer- one of the main things I was looking for, as the stacks are horrible. -Spacious Floor Designs- I had a 1 bedroom, so the living area/bedroom/kitchen/bathroom was almost 900 square feet. Huge. - Management gives you a contact to call to setup on internet and other amenities upon signing the lease. - Management puts notices on doors when events, maintenance/prevention events come due, when things are happening that need to stop. CONS: (Very few) -Neighbors are not always the quiet/considerate ones. Walls are thin, so the staircases amplify the steps taken by neighbors. Luck of the draw I guess. It is an older complex. -The alarms in the apartments do not notify law enforcement/fire department. They go off at times and are the loudest, piercing thing you have ever heard. Make sure management gives you the code upon signing your lease. I was not given one when I arrived. The first and only incident I had was after an electrical outage after about 1 year there. I arrived home from out of town at 10pm and the alarm went off, awaking all of my neighbors. I had never had to enter a code prior to this and it was not in my lease papers. I called the maintenance emergency number and was instructed on how to disable it by disconnecting wires. It stayed that way until I left. -The apartment layout with a door wall to create a "foyer" when you walk in the apartments are outdated and do not allow large furniture to fit through the door. Overview: Go in and talk with the manager, you will not be disappointed. This is one of the more budget-friendly properties in the lineup, but it is not the cheapest kept or managed. If you want the 2020 updated amenities, they have more upscale properties than Oak Creek, but those you will pay much more for. This was learned after visiting the above-stated 75% of the properties. 1st creek had a complex for each budget situation.

Friendly staff and wonderful accommodations. Thank you so much for helping me with everything Noelle! Can’t wait to finally move in!


By Megan Tripptree, Jan 22, 2020 from Google

When I first moved in I wasn't thrilled with everything that had went wrong within just a month of living there but we haven't had any issues since and maintenance is always nice and quick to respond.

Oak Creek is an awesome place to live! I've been here almost a year and absolutely love it. The staff is nice and friendly, problems are handled quickly. The grounds are well maintained as is the pool. Friendly neighbors, spacious apartments that feel more like a home, and great prices. Convenient to lots of restaurants, shopping and Earhardt Expressway makes it easy to get to downtown. I highly recommend this property.


By Tristan Loucks, Oct 13, 2015 from Google

Clean, quiet, well maintained, office and maintenance staff are excellent, good location, and surprisingly inexpensive. Nice pool and tennis court, but unfortunately no gym. Beautiful grounds.

So happy in the Ridge I've been at Oak Creek for about 2 years and love it. The bonus sun room and storage closet add an amazing amount of square footage. I'm on the 3rd floor so my ceilings are high and make the place feel very spacious. I've only had two issues with appliances; both were reported in the evening and fixed the next morning. They pressure wash the outside of the building pretty often so there is no build up of spider webs, leaves, or bug nests. They are also very vigilant about trash or items left on the porches so it keeps the whole neighborhood looking very neat and nice.


By Ashley M., Aug 13, 2015 from Apartments

Great! The Creeks of River Ridge are great. I love looking out my window to the fountain in the courtyard. The closet space is everything!! The staff is phenomenal!!


By Justin C., Aug 13, 2015 from Apartments

Oak Creek Apartments The apartments are very beautiful and the people in the office are very nice. Price is ok, for a one bedroom it is 852. You are paying for the area. Very good area. Haven't had any problems other then there's a lot of tress so it tends to get a few bugs in the apartment. I've been here over a year and really have no complaints. Every time we have had a problem they were right here to fix it. I am actually about to resign my lease because I love it here so much. They also have an alarm system and fire place that helps my girlfriend feel more comfortable and safe.

All over Good Review A few minor things that could improve(1 dumpster ALWAYS full and kinda gross, no sun around pool). Over all quiet and clean grounds. Landscaping is top of the line. Wish I still had my balcony and not the sunroom.
