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!

There is a very strong feeling of "community" within Compass Pointe. Most property owners come from out of state and so we tend to have a strong bond. There are many clubs/groups within the community featuring social activities and community support. Our developers constantly interact with new and older residents, creating a friendly, trusting environment

Not only is it a beautiful community and very resort like, we have great amenities that are bigger and better than ever planned. Also, by far the best amenity is the people that live here. We have people from all walks of life and always friendly and wanting to help each other! It just keeps getting better and better with the continued developing that's being done.

The residents are all so delighted to have left the North and its cold weather and high taxes. They are ready to enjoy this last part of their lives in a community that is truly like a resort. Just looking at the lanai, especially at night, is enough to put anyone in a good mood.

All the people are very friendly and welcoming. So much to do within the community - whether you are physically active or not. Great walking & bike routes. Also, the weather is great and nearby Wilmington is a great place to explore, dine, or shop.

Have lived here four years and absolutely love it; great amenities, but more importantly, great people. Enjoy being near the ocean but far enough inland. Wilmington is a wonderful city and you are only two hours away from Raleigh.

People make a community. We have been blessed with beautiful scenery homes (vast assortment) not cookie cutter, great amenities (state of the art) with more to come, and the friendliest, happiest melting pot of northerners glad to be here and away from the cold and grind of their other life. Plenty to do, clubs and socials, wonderful neighbors throughout the community (no us and them) close to the arts and theatrical events, historical and beach scene near by. An environment where people care about one another and strive to make Compass Pointe a vacation way of living.

I have been here 4 1/2 years and am so satisfied with the developer. They have come through with all that is is promised and are open to adding changes suggested by the homeowners. Best of all are my neighbors! What a positive, active community! And when a problem arises they are there, giving 100%. Even more than the developer, the community and residents are the best.
