By Brandon Badeaux, Aug 18, 2022 from Google

Lived here for 2 years and loved it. Great apartment layouts and 3/4 very helpful staff. Mark is an awesome guy and handyman, very trustworthy and can fix almost any issue you have quickly. Adrienne has always been one of my favorite people there, super helpful and fun to talk to. I would ask to speak with her almost every time I called because she’s quick, informative, and a great listener. Tonya is a great manager and all my experiences with her have been 10/10. And there’s Aline Bryant, who I see most other people have already commented about. She’s sweet and means well, but can come off very rude and condescending at times. If you’re reading this Aline, thanks for the help (at times) but please try to work on your listening skills and comments that you say. They don’t always come across as you mean them. Staff aside, I didn’t deal with the deposit issues and charges that other people have experienced so I can’t really speak on that. Tonya was very helpful and understanding during our final walkthrough, but as with any apartment you should fill out every detail on your pre move-in sheet to avoid probs with that. Beautiful pool area and property in general. I’d move here again, but not to the 3rd floor since there’s no garbage chutes. Thanks for everything guys! Especially Adrienne and Mike Brandon Badeaux

My wife and I were lucky to have found this place and spent a wonderful year here before moving out of state for work reasons. Adrienne, Alene & Tanya at the Lease Office are incredibly kind, sincere, funny, and really do put in the time to make sure the residents there are happy and are taken care of. The maintenance crew and groundskeeper make sure that the entire complex is functioning correctly and stays looking gorgeous year-round. Mark is exceptionally good at what he does and is always quick to show up to fix whatever may be broken. The apartments are beautiful, the majority of neighbors are kind & thoughtful, and the staff is absolutely top notch. Give the place a look and meet the people, you’ll fall in love! All that being said, we could only find one possible downside of living at Palmetto Creek Apartments, and it is completely out of the hands of the staff, and they bare no fault of it. ‘It’ being the smell, it comes once or twice a week from the nearby water treatment facility. Honestly, if you have your windows closed you won’t smell a thing. However, you will smell it on your way out to your car. This was an unwelcomed surprise to us, but it can be bearable if you’re not too sensitive to it. We hope you have as great a time living there as we did, best of luck!

Thank you, Mr. Mark for responding on day of my request & doing an awesome job on repairing the freezer leak. Appreciate the overall service & many thanks to Ms. Adrienne for checking in on me and scheduling the maintenance.

Love, love Adrienne but the entire office was a pleasure to deal with. Customer service and helpful nature made this an easy choice when deciding where to live. Thank you girls!

The best place to live in 1st lake property. The staff and customer service is what sets Palmetto Creek from it's competitor. Adrienne was the staff member i dealt with most often and couldn't have asked the better experience. The maintenance staff is exceptional specially Mike who is so calm and always ready to help. I highly recommend this property for anyone looking for a great place to live and phenomenal staff.

Great place to live. We always have a great experience contacting the rental office and a rapid response time. The ladies - Adrienne, Alene and Tanya are always on top of things and a pleasure to talk to. The maintenance team is quick and thorough and the grounds are kept tidy.


By Emmanuel T., Jul 12, 2021 from Apartments

A Great Place to Live We just moved in and we're absolutely in love with the apartment and the property. Everything is clean, safe & calm with kind and courteous neighbors. Ms. Adrienne & Ms. Aline, in the lease office, made the whole lease process very smooth & care-free and were there to answer every question & concern. I feel very welcome to Palmetto Creek and that we're in good hands.


By Bryce Murray, Jul 07, 2021 from Google

The staff at Palmetto Creeks, especially Adrienne, is wonderful. We live at a different 1st Lake property, and lived in the creeks years ago, but rent multiple garages from Palmetto Creeks. Palmetto Creeks management is really just leaps ahead of the others. Our rent is processed immediately after payment is made, they promptly return emails, they keep a watchful eye out on my property and call if they see anything unusual, and, they are ALWAYS happy, friendly and nice.

Wonderful and positive experience when ever I contact the main Office at Palmetto Creek. Eileen responded to my emailed work order on a Saturday and was able to have Tony from maintenance look at my drier issue and verified my problem. Mark fixed the issue on Monday. I appreciate the teamwork and professionalism.


By Dewayne B., Jun 05, 2021 from Apartments

Peaceful Residence Been in the city about 3 years, and this residence has been absolutely great. I am able to get great space and peace of mind while still being in a good location near plenty of amenities. This property has the best staff that I have ever experienced. Aline and Adrienne are great at checking in on residents and the conditions of their spaces. Mark in maintenance knows the complex, and is an awesome help to residents. I have really enjoyed living here! My family/friends really love visiting!

Ms. Aline and Adrienne have been so helpful to work with to view and lease an apt during my relocation from another state! They were both very accommodating- and worked with with my schedule for showings/ signings- they are wonderful! The office manager is also pleasant, and offered to help in any way she could- they definitely have a great team!


By Byri A., Apr 23, 2021 from Apartments

Love this apartment and staff members The apartment is absolutely beautiful. The bathrooms are spacious and up to date. I could not find one complaint in this apartment. The office staff was extremely welcoming and friendly. It did not take long for me to feel at home.

By Michelle Nuss, Feb 22, 2021 from Google

Beautiful, accessible, quiet, safe and the front office and maintenance staff are exceptional. I would highly recommend this complex!


By Mac, Feb 18, 2021 from Google

We have lived at Palmetto Creek since 2015 and have splendidly enjoyed the experience. Spacious bedrooms, walk in closets, vaulted ceilings on our level, cozy sunroom, oversized master bathtub among other amenities make our 2 bedroom apartment a comfortable home. The grounds are well maintained with creeks, swimming pool and outdoor grill. Management is friendly, prompt with issues and willing to help make accommodations to expectations. Recommended if you want a home rather than a run of the mill cheap apartment. Mike & Mary Ann McCall
