Mar 2019: Notimpressed, I've lived here for a while and I dont think it is worth the price at all.
Mar 2019: Management and staff are pathetic and if you are a college student they do not take you seriously until you show up with an adult. They are not respectful and see you only as a number. I have lived here for a year and the property and services just get worse. They will enter your apartment for no reason just because and won't even notify you. The internet is pathetic and if you have visitors they will be towed and the office does absolutely nothing. The amenities are not worth it and never work. The price is incredibly outrageous for what you get and be ready to pay a "utility fee" that the office can't even breakdown the costs and tell you what exactly goes toward water or electricity. I'm not surprised if they overcharge you just because they can. DO NOT LIVE HERE.
Feb 2019: I have been living here for the past few years. I have been receiving excellent service since. Maintenance, office, everyone has been accommodating! Maintenance issues get resolved in an extreme timely manner. Staff will even reach out afterwards to make sure the job was properly done:)
Feb 2019: I have LOVED living at the Villas. The units are spacious and well kept, and the amenities are better than most student-living residences near LSU. Most importantly, the Villas has a great staff! The management team is always available and willing to accommodate residents in anyway possible, and the maintenance team has always addressed any issues I’ve had in a timely and considerate fashion. It seems that they truly care for their residents. I would recommend the Villas to anyone who is looking for a comfortable, safe, and all-around great place to live near campus.
Feb 2019: No matter what the issue is the Villas at Riverbend is great at being responsive in a quick and professional manner. I absolutely love all of the activities that the staff puts on for the residents throughout the month because they are so inclusive and beneficial. The property is always clean and the maintenance staff makes sure everything in your unit is always running smoothly. So glad I resigned my lease for another year!
Dec 2018: I’ve lived here for a year now and hands down the best place I’ve been, resigned for fall of 2019 and I couldn’t be happier with my decision Review from Google
Nov 2018: I love being a part of the staff! Everyone is very friendly. The environment is very laid back. My bosses are very friendly and are always willing and able to work around my school schedule. If you are looking for a laid back place to work, look no further. Review from Google
Oct 2018: I was recently bought on to the team as a Community Assistant, and I love everything about my new job. The staff is amazing and they are very friendly! Review from Google
What is the benefit of a relet over a sublease? A relet is a much cleaner agreement. The original leasee is no longer liable for any unpaid rent, or damages. This means there is a clean cut-over and has much less risk to the original leasee. While there is usually a little cost involved with th...read more
Sep 2018: Definitely the best layouts/square footage in the LSU area, love the closet in my 4 bedroom. From being on the staff and getting to know the rest of the housing communities, I really think u can’t beat the amount of space offered Review from Google
Sep 2018: I truly hate to do this but it's the only way management will hopefully do something about their inability to tend to their tenants concerns. The staff and maintenance are exceptional, however it only goes so far when the management can care less. From the first night I moved in I discovered there was a roachproblem. After bringing it to the staffs attention, they sent an exterminator that basically sprayed water because everything he did was ineffective. It finally took 7 MONTHS for them to bomb our house. (Mind you this is only the FIRST YEAR I lived here- 7 out of my 12). There's constantly hidden fees, and changes in management/bookkeepers/staff and its difficult to even track where your money is REALLY going. To make matters worse I have been taking lukewarm showers since I've been here and the problem has yet to be solved. I literally h Review from Google

Feb 2018: It is a great place to live! I just starting living here this year, and have already renewed my lease for next year. Great community, good space. The staff is very helpful, and always comes right away. I have a pet here and they are very supportive of it. Would reccomend! Review from Google
Feb 2018: Let's just say the one star is for location - the only reason I haven't moved out of this place.
I will leave the front desk staff out of this because they are generally nice and helpful.
The management, on the other hand, is the most incompetent, rude, pathetic staff I have ever seen in my life. My apartment was broken into and the general manager insinuated that I was making the whole thing up - there's really no reason to be so rude about it even if there was nothing she could do.
I've lived here for three years and ever since the new company that bought this place took over, it has gone downhillfast.
Oh, and they are entering people in a drawing to win $1000 if they leave a 5 star review even if they don't live here.
There's plenty of other apartment complexes around - keep looking. Review from Google
Feb 2018: Amazing place to live!! The staff go above and beyond to help you out with whatever you need. Highly recommend! Review from Google
Feb 2018: To start off my visit, the ladies at the front desk were very kind and helpful, answered all of my questions, and had the best customer service of any property I had been to! The property was beautiful, and they even have a gym. 5/5 Review from Google
Feb 2018: I highly recommend the Villas. The staff is always extremely nice and helpful and the maintenance team responds to requests in a very timely fashion. I feel very safe living here and greatly enjoy the amenities: gym access, pool with grills, study and media rooms. The units are well maintained and very spacious and have a lot of storage space. Also, there are plenty of resident and visitor parking spaces located in close proximity to each unit. I love living at The Villas at Riverbend! Review from Google
Feb 2018: I currently live at the Villas at Riverbend and I absolutely love it! I feel the most safe here since I have been attending LSU. The community is small which I love! And every time I walk in the office, I am immedialtey greeted. My maintenance requests are always taken care within a day. Everyone is so awesome here! Review from Google
Nov 2017: Do you like having money and/or good wifi? If so, the Villas at Riverbed is NOT the place for you! The wifi is always down and they love to throw in fees every month that you weren't expecting! I write my check for $20 above the rent price I signed for and still get emails every month saying that I owe anywhere from $10 to $30 more. Review from Google
Nov 2017: The staff at The Villas at Riverbend are great, however the internet is bad and management does not acknowledge that it is likely their network/hardware. Management directs complaints about internet to the provider's (Cox) customer help line. Additionally rent has been rising as I've been here. Review from Google
