Compass Pointe os a friendly, beautiful community. Its proximity to the city of Wilmington provides residents with theatre, museums, river walk, fabulous restaurants all within a 10 minute drive. Compass Pointe is a lovely pleasant place to reside. Being a gated community, it gives residents the feeling that they are safe, secure and residing in a tropical resort. The amenities are top notch and you get a lot for your HOA dues! The developers are reliable and resourceful. Everything that has been promised is coming to fruition. Most importantly is that the people who reside in CP are kind, friendly and thoughtful people. The residents make kit a fun place to live. There is something for everyone to do. ANd yet, they are serious about giving back to society. So many of our residents volunteer in local schools, county offices, Manna Ministries, etc. We feel blessed to live here.

Lots of activities & social clubs with lots of friendly people. A stunning pool and lanai. Feels as if you're in the Caribbean. And that's just in Compass Pointe. There are several beaches within a very short drive and Historic Wilmington, NC with tons of restaurants and river views

The people who live here are some of the friendliest people I have ever met. I sometimes have to pinch myself because I can't believe I am so lucky to have found my home at Compass Pointe. I am HAPPY all the time!!

We have been here for over 2 years and are so happy that we decided to build in the gated community of Compass Pointe. The people are the friendliest group on the planet! Our pool and amenities are the best we have seen in visiting a dozen communities in and around Wilmington, NC. Our HOA fees are nominal. Our new golf course, which should be completed in 2015, promises to be one of the most exquisite courses in the area. The proximity to the south eastern NC beaches, and the shopping, restaurants, cultural attractions of Wilmington, keep us entertained and active! The climate is a perfect blend of the seasons with a very short winter and virtually no snow to speak of. We have the best quality of life here that one could hope for. Even my grown kids say that "Compass Pointe rocks!".

We are a community of very special people. If you are in need of anything the entire community comes together to help no matter what. We have 4 different golf clubs,3 bowling leagues, parties for everything and all are invited. We have been married for 40 yrs. and never lived by the calendar but since we have been here we need to check the calendar each day for any activities for that day. It's just a great place to live!

ALTHOUGH NOT MARKETED AS A RETIREMENT COMMUNITY MOST OF THE OWNERS ARE RETIRED SO WE ALL HAVE A LOT IN COMMON. THE DEVELOPERS ARE HANDS ON AND HAVE PROVIDED AMENITIES ABOVE AND BEYOND WHAT WAS PROMISED.
