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!

(Translated by Google) Beautiful apartments for rent, very good attention of its staff and good maintenance of its facilities. (Original) Bellos apartamentos en alquiler, muy buena atención de su personal y buen mantenimiento de sus instalaciones.


By Naincy Verma, Oct 29, 2015 from Google

Nice apartments and good management team. I love to stay here for a long as it's very safe place to live in new orleans .


By Brenda G., Aug 13, 2015 from Apartments

Palmetto Creek This is the best apartment I have every lived in. The outdoor space has beautiful landscape, a pool area with lounge chairs, barbecue pits for entertainment. There are restaurants in walking distance. The staff is helpful 24/7. At my age and retired, I feel safe at all times. Would love to live here for the rest of my life.


By Rachel P., Aug 08, 2015 from Apartments

Palmetto Creek Gated apartment homes. The 3rd floor is well worth the walk-up.The 2 bedroom/2 bath is spacious w/ 12 foot ceilings a sun room. Pool is small but refreshing on a steamy hot summer day. Largest drawback - apartments are next to a freeway w/ no sound barrier. A good night's sleep can be trying. Suitable for adults w/out children since there are no play areas for them. Pets are welcome.


By apmitchell, Jun 01, 2014 from Apartment Ratings

I have lived at Palmetto Creek for 7 years and have thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The office staff is friendly and courteous. Any maintenance issues are handled quickly and professionally. The grounds and pool area are kept clean. This is a gated complex, so security is not an issue. The owners take pride in maintaining this complex as a first-rate property. They recently completed a comprehensive re-landscaping project. I would recommend this apartment community to friends.


By David R., May 31, 2014 from Apartment Ratings

Great place to live during school. I moved here for my medical residency , and it's nice and quiet for studying. Also great for small families. I feel my family is safe if I have to be away. Maintenance is always fast and helpful, which is a huge plus! It's definitely the most well maintained apartment complex in the area!


By JonLHurd, May 31, 2014 from Apartment Ratings

I have lived at complex on and off since it's inception and have nothing but great things to say about the facility and staff. The 3 ladies in office do an amazing job and they are why I have come back after moving back to Nola. The maintenance is exceptional. The premier place to rent in Jefferson Parish.


By MaryScalco, May 31, 2014 from Apartment Ratings

I lived here before moving out of town and have since moved back. The facility is very well run and the ladies Tanya, Aline, and Jessica are always a joy and very efficient. Don't look anywhere else to live. This is premier apt in Nola.


By CodiRogi, May 31, 2014 from Apartment Ratings

Great for family life! We searched and searched for apartments when we relocated to New Orleans. We toured several properties before we found Palmetto Creek. Palmetto Creek was and is by far the cleanest, most attractive complex in the area. Being a gated complex makes our family feel safe and secure. Another perk is the location. Palmetto Creek is walking distance to a great shopping area and only minutes from downtown New Orleans! We've been here over two years and wouldn't live anywhere else!


By anonymous, May 29, 2014 from Apartment Ratings

I recently just moved to the New Orleans area and immediately fell in love with Palmetto Creek. The apartments are very spacious, large closet space, nice pool and the grounds are always clean. I can not say enough great things about the complex and highly recommend it to everyone!


By curlicue, May 29, 2014 from Apartment Ratings

In two short years, the last complex I lived in became less than desirable because of "disturbance the peace" problems. It was less safe. For the past three years, I've found Pametto Creek safe and quiet. Families live here. The staff has always been helpful and knowledgeable. Major roads are close but not too close, as I prefer. They must screen applicants more rigorsously than other complexes, because I have never had any problems with any of the residents here. They have always been friendly. I have no plans on leaving anytime soon.


By anonymous, May 29, 2014 from Apartment Ratings

I have lived at Palmetto Creek over 10 years and have liked it. The grounds are always kept immaculate and the managers/maintenance men are quick to respond to any issues. They continue to update the grounds with new landscaping and updating the pool area. I also love the location since I work close by and Elmwood has added several restaurants and a shopping center within walking distance.


By pmontgomery, May 29, 2014 from Apartment Ratings

I have live in Palmetto Creeks since May 2004. I totally loved the property's landscape. The maintenance crew is there to cater to residents. The front office is so kind to me. And, the entrance to the apartment reminds me so much of my favorite resorts. My third floor is totally like a small cottage, very spacious & lots of room. Palmetto Creeks is simply lovely.


By anonymous, May 29, 2014 from Apartment Ratings

Ive lived in Palmetto Creek for a few years and while no property is perfect. Palmetto creek is a nice place to live and it's a very quiet community. They have a very friendly staff and the maintence guys are so nice and prompt, I never have to wait long if I have an issue with my unit. So If youre looking for a nice apartment close to the city but with a residental feel Palmetto Creek is for you.


By nancy.conrad@tgs.com, May 28, 2014 from Apartment Ratings

â?¢ I have lived at Palmetto Creek for 10.5 years and I am extremely happy with my apartment and the beautiful gardens. Palmetto completely re-landscaped our area and the gardens and pool and the pond are just beautiful. The staff is just wonderful also. Repairs to my apartment are completed the same day as my request. Tanya, Jessica, Aline, Mike, Mike, and Glenn are so friendly and wonderful. Palmetto Creek is my home and I I feel very safe and comfortable. I truly thank the Palmetto Staff for managing the complex so professionally. Nancy B. Conrad

I have lived in Palmetto Creek for the past two years. The staff is accomodating and friendly. I would recommend it to anyone looking for an apartment in River Ridge

I've been residing in Palmetto for 3 years now, and it's been an overall pleasant experience. The apartments are VERY spacious. I've shopped around and a lot of other complexes offer apartments HALF the size of mine for the same price. The maintenance is very friendly and they've always responded no later than the day after I've reported a problem. The office staff is really down to earth and helpful. The community is very quiet and feels safe and the Elmwood shopping area is literally walking distance. I've enjoyed my stay so far! (SS) ;)


By anonymous, Aug 19, 2013 from Apartment Ratings

Quiet, beautiful apartments, nice neighboes, great landscaping, beautiful pool!


By susanne.walker@parallon.com, Aug 09, 2013 from Apartment Ratings

I have just completed one year here. Having sold a home and moving into an apartment, this has been a pleasure. The staff here is friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this property to friends and relatives.


By cbbecker, May 20, 2013 from Apartment Ratings

I enjoy living at Palmetto Creek and would recommend this complex to future residents. I have experienced friendly, professional management and staff who make every effort to be helpful. Maintenance men Glenn and Mike respond to any maintenance requests in a timely fashion and are always cheerful and helpful.
