Great Place to Live I moved to the area 2 plus years ago and after looking at A LOT of apartments, I found Palmetto Creek and still think it is the best place to live. It is conveniently located in Elmwood...easy access to the airport as well as the city. Both the administrative and maintenance staff are friendly and helpful. I feel safe with gated parking. I use the recently updated fitness room and can choose between two swimming pools nearby. It is a pet friendly place with well behaved pets AND owners. I made an excellent choice!

I have lived here for 4 years now, and it has been an overall pleasant experience. Property is well maintained and the office staff - Tanya, Adrienne and Eileen have all been wonderful to work with when I need their assistance. The maintenance staff operates with a high sense of urgency, and their repairs and work are done quickly and efficiently. I would highly recommend Palmetto Creek Apartments to anyone seeking a new rental home in the Elmwood area.

I’ve been here just shy of 3 years and still love my apartment. Its safe, affordable, super cute, and spacious. The complex is an easy commute to the CBD, the airport, shopping, and restaurants. The management team is great! Tanya and Adrienne are two of the nicest people you’ll ever meet...they both have gone out of their way to personally help me. Maintenance guys are great too, and issues are handled the same day. The grounds are beautiful and well kept. I love the pool and access to the gym and walking/running path at the complex next door. The neighbors here are pretty cool too!

Apartment staff is very helpful! I never wait longer than 24 hours for maintenance requests and the grounds are always well kept. Very thankful to have found this place!


By Klassi D., Aug 22, 2019 from Apartments

Look No More! You Should Live Here! Long time resident here! I thoroughly enjoy living here. Great location with easy access to the expressway and the interstate. Great restaurants and shopping within walking distance! More than anything, our complex is quite, safe, and exceptionally well-kept! The grounds are beautifully maintained. Palmetto Creek has gated-access, easy parking, a pool, and a staff that treats you like family! No need to look anywhere else! This is the right place. You can thank me later!

I was inspired to write a review for Palmetto Creek by the exceptional service that I continue to receive (month after month). I’ll start with the staff. You honestly can’t beat the service from the moment you hit the the front door. Ms. Tonya and her team, Ms. Adrienne and Ms Aline are top notch and represent the community well. The three words I’d use to describe them would be professional, responsive and “extremely” accommodating. And the community 😍. This well kept community/property is what initially attracted me to the location. It’s beautiful, quiet and feels safe. From waking up to the serene sound of water splashing against the rocks in the manmade property waterfall/creek to listening to the birds chirp while relaxing in the gazebo. It feels like a piece of heaven (Pleeeasse post pictures). This community has good energy all around and I’m excited to call it home.

The staff and maintenance here are amazing, Thier always there to help with any needs you may ask of them, grounds here are always maintained! We moved here to a corporate apartment for short term, and decided to do a long term lease, and we LOVE IT HERE!

I loved living at Palmetto Creek. Beautiful property, great location and super friendly office and efficient maintenance crew! I would highly recommend.


By Nicole Robinson, Aug 30, 2018 from Google

The gates actually stay closed here. Some complexes advertise gates and leave them wide open. I liked the layout of the apartment but I feel like my money could be better spent next door. You are able to use most of the facilities at Citrus Creek so why not rent there? It’s about the same price. I liked that the kitchen area had room for bar stools.


By Manny Upton, Aug 10, 2018 from Google

I've lived in this apartment community for 3 years and havent had any issues or complaints. The office staff is amazing! Tanya and Ilene are so helpful and always willing to go the extra step to make you feel comfortable. Anything that came up maintenance wise was always taken care of and usually very fast. Very safe and quiet. I just resigned my lease for the 4th year!
