About James Cristina

love meeting new people and learning new cultures. I like to see people happy and giving them a great experiences. I am your regular out going southern guy. If I saw you out I am that person that would just start talking to you and I have been known to have drinks with complete strangers. I love what I do and the best part of my job is being able to meet new people from every walk of life. I have been serving quest and building communities since the age of 19 and I have been learning how to keep residents happy since the age of nine. People that have rented from me have said that I was the best and the most laid back landlord they have ever had. I care about my quest and try to accommodate their every need when at all possible. Stay safe and rather you book with us or someone else have a great time on your visit to Baton Rouge.

Why James Cristina chose Louisiana

This property is one of a kind. It is a magical hidden garden not many know about. It is a small community with a community abidance. Know as the Island because when you are home it is like the surrounding city does not exist while entering the compound. This place is not just a place to stay it is a place to meet people and truly a place where everyone knows your name.

What makes this apartment unique

Wonderful grounds and abidance. Family owned and operated since 1969!

Three strikes

  • 2 of 5

Strike one: unit preparation Not particularly clean. We found cigarette butts in a dresser drawer, dead bugs in kitchen drawer, dirty cabinet shelves, remnants of glitter projects in another, dusty corners, dirty ice cube trays, dishes that needed rewashing. Only 2 dinner plates, no kitchen knives, broken can opener, odd tiny silverware. NO hand soap, bath soap, shampoo, dish soap, or paper towels. When I am paying over $100 a night, I expect at least some soap!

Strike two: prompt access information. We did not get the address and access codes until the day of checkin, an hour or so after requesting it and waiting in a mall for a response. Once moved in, we had to request wifi login name and password repeatedly. Did not get a response until the next day. No notes anywhere about trash, recycling, or checkout procedures.

Strike three: VRBO advertisement. Once moved in, we compared the unit to the photos posted and found that this was NOT the unit advertised on VRBO. While this unit was adequate and maybe comparable to the unit advertised, we were never told that this was a different unit. Kind of a bait and switch move.

Our complex is 15 minutes from anywhere in Baton Rouge. A five minute drive to the movie studio! Perfect location if you are working in that Baton Rouge area.
