Wonderful Place to Live I've lived at Sawmill Creek Apts for 10 years, and have no plans to move. The grounds are well kept, the maintenance issues are attended to promptly and efficiently, and the staff is great.

I lived here January 1015 - April 2016 I really enjoyed living here. Maintenance was on top of everything whenever I had an issue. Very understanding if you get paid on a different day than the 1st-3rd A lot more pros than cons here. Best 1st lake property I've resided in.

11/19/16. Another year but different Bldg./Apt @ Sawmill Creek & things started off not so good. In June, we moved into a bigger apartment & the dryer in our apt. was not drying our clothes. We had to put in a few complaints to the corp. office in order to finally get our unit replaced w/ a new one. Also the AC was not keeping our place cool especially the master bedroom. We would set our thermostat to 75 during the day & the inside temp. would still rise to 80-85 degrees & AC would not cut off till 8PM that night. I think the AC units for the 2 bedroom apartments are too small & needs to be replaced w/ larger units. We were told by maintenance that all the townhouses & 3rd floor vaulted ceiling apartments have the same issue. Letters were then sent out from the office that we need to keep doors & blinds closed, get a couple fans or a portable AC unit to help keep our apartments cool in the summer time. Parking lot lighting was another issue we had to complain about several times before it was fixed, not to mention, there still is some lights not yet fixed. The entrance gate has it's own issues also but hey it's been that way since I moved here 2 years ago. They did redo the whole entire entrance with a new system & cement work so hopefully they get it working properly. I mean, we pay good money to live in a nice complex but I don't think we should have these kinds of issues that is not getting resolved in a timely manner. Other than these couple issues, we love living here. The location of complex is great & close to lots of things. Neighborhood is safe & quite. The maintenance crew are pretty cool dudes & the groundkeepers are doing a hell of a job keeping this complex clean from trash & looking fresh. HAPPY HOLIDAYS ONCE AGAIN!!

Sawmill Creek is a great place to live. It's pet friendly, very nice grounds, two pools, safe and convenient to everything. Staff is professional and helpful. After looking at several apartment complexes, I chose Sawmill Creek because of the size and layout of the apartment, and the leasing agent, Ashlee was patient in helping to find me an apartment that fit my budget. I couldn't be happier here.


By Jessica Holland, Nov 18, 2016 from Google

On the up and up, very quiet and cozy area to live in. When i first moved in i feel in love with the apartment. Even in the beginning i seen that they were on top of things and getting them fixed. I once had some one come fix my AC unit and left muddy tracks all through the apartment. They came out and had the Apt floor cleaned. On The Downside. I have been living with a hole in the ceiling for the past 2 months. Every morning i had to get up and let Maintenance guys in my bedroom room from 9-5 ( I work overnight so imagine how i felt). The hole still is there. Still leaking but because my lease is up im sure they will leave it until i move out. Its sad that you have to live with a mole infested ceiling and a AC unit that wouldn't stop leaking even after a Coil Replacement. I understand summer heat, roof issues but i dont understand letting your tenants live like that. But if your lucky enough to have no major maintenance issues then im sure u will love this place


By Christina Rangel, Nov 18, 2016 from Google

The office staff are very professional and helpful. My unit is well maintained, neat and clean. The grounds are safe and well lit, which is extremely important in the New Orleans area. My maintenance requests have always been completed quickly and well.

I've lived in these apartments for 6 months and have never had any type of negative experience or issue. The staff have been helpful and very professional. It feels safe, which is a big issue for me since I live alone. It's maintained well and in a great location.


By lanie breaux, Nov 19, 2015 from Google

Haven't had any problems since being here, great area to be in


By Emily Pollet, Nov 19, 2015 from Google

I have been living here for about 3 months and love the entire experience. The grounds are always clean and look great, my apartment is just what I was looking for and I cannot say enough about the office staff. Ashlee, Tiffany & Meisha are great and always very helpful with any rent questions and/or work orders that need to be filed. I would highly recommend to all of my friends!!


By Tina Cummings, Nov 19, 2015 from Google

I have only wonderful things to say about Sawmill Creek Apts as well as 1st lake Properties! I was helped by a professional kind lady named Irmeisha in their office and she is the reason I'm so pleased with the way their complex is being run. The apartments are clean, large, and beautifully landscaped with lush gardens and a friendly staff maintaining it constantly with pretty flowers around every brook, pool, and buildings. The apartments come equipped with full size washer and dryers as well as fireplaces and ample closet space and storage. The complex is gated with a private coded entrance and some apartments are equipped with intrusion alarm systems. My sons are so excited that our family pet Jacques, who is a standard poodle will also be welcomed even though he exceeds the typical 20 pound weight limit of most rental properties. We are looking forward to staying in Sawmill Creek apartments and will be enjoying the clean swimming pools this summer! Thank you Irmeisha for making our move to a new home a pleasant experience! You are truly an asset to 1st Lake Properties. Tina Marie D.

I've been here for almost 2 years and love it. Office and maintenance staff are very polite and helpful. I plan on being here as long as I can.


By wellsm438, Oct 26, 2015 from Apartment Ratings

We have been at Sawmill Creek for almost a year and it has been a wonderful experience. The office staff is amazing, everyone at the office are very helpful. We am very sad to see Nisha the manager leaving, and she will be missed. Although I am sad to see her leave I am grateful for the office staff she has trained so well and leaving behind. Sawmill Creek is the place to be, and I would highly recommend this place to anyone who's looking for a permanent place to stay.


By Brent L., Sep 01, 2015 from Apartments

Mediocre at best When we first drove through Sawmills gate we were greeted by several lovely water fountains around several of the buildings. This townhouse apartment was seemingly nice, with ample parking and an accent wall with wood burning fireplace. The living room had a comfortable amount of square footage and the separate kitchen/dining area was appealing. With white walls, a small balcony and included washer/drier, we were settling into the idea of living there. We walked up the stairs and into two a small with 5 doors: two hall closets, one bathroom, one large bedroom with its own walk in closet and another bedroom with its own large walk in closet and own bathroom. The only reason I am giving 3 instead of 5 stars is because all of the cabinets, counters, floors, and appliances are very dated. They areally in pretty decent condition but by no means new, modern, or luxury.


By anonymous, Aug 14, 2015 from Apartment Ratings

Polite and helpful staff. I love my apartment with huge walk in closets and last but not least, my balcony. Beautiful landscape and creeks, feel very proud to invite my guests to my complex. Convenient location with lots of shopping options.


By Sherrigoo, Jul 11, 2015 from Apartment Ratings

Love sawmill creek's huge floor plans. Entire office staff is very professional and helpful. I always get prompt response.


By anonymous, Jul 06, 2015 from Apartment Ratings

I have lived here for one year and is moving out to be closer to my daughter's new school. But I really want to live here for longer time. Its environment and facility are great and I like the flowers in this community. Most importantly, staff members, especially Tiffany and Nisha, are always ready to solve any problems for you. They are nice and warmhearted and put the feelings of residents on the priority.

I moved in June 2015 & I can truly say that I have enjoyed living here. I sit here & read these other reviews that is downgrading this complex & I just don't understand how they could write such a review. The staff when I have dealt w/ them are very friendly & just can't imagine some of the comments people are making would come from a staff members mouth. If these issues are happening I just hope everyone will begin the new year w/ a better attitude. But, for me this is a very clean & well groomed complex & I love living here. It is nested close to just about everything I need....great location. I just wish they would reconsider letting us decorate out balcony for holidays. MERRY CHRISTMAS & HAPPY NEW YEARS TO ALL!!!!
