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!".

They have everything I was looking for when we planned our move to NC. The neighbors become your friends instantly, and everyone waves no matter if you know them personally or not. So far the developer has over delivered on finished amenities, and those still in the planning stage are constantly being amended and changed to meet the communities needs. The developer really listens to the residents most of the time. We looked into several communities in the area and this one showed the most promise and had all of the elements we were looking for.

The word community was meant for Compass Pointe from the moment you enter residents are waving as you drive down the street. The residents are genuinely happy people who have much in common as many of us are relocating from the same geographic area up north. Even prior to moving into the community, while our homes are being built, there is a continuous on-line communication that enables neighbors to be neighborly - exchanging meaningful information that is beneficial to all. And this crowd is a party crowd; they celebrate everything...from welcoming new comers to committees for just about every occasion to all kinds of groups activities like golfing, bowling, card games, music, art, etc. And the Grand Lanai and Wellness Center are the locations for much of these shared events. As a community where a smile is the norm - happy, as well as sad times are shared. Whether you're single or a family unit, it would be very hard to find fault at Compass Pointe. Although it's predominately retirees, it doesn't feel like a retirement "village" at all...Children of all ages are welcome!
