Relaxed lifestyle, beautiful neighborhoods, friendly neighbors. Minutes from downtown Wilmington and easy drive to five area beaches. Wonderful community for retirees and growing families. Searched for five years before deciding on Compass Pointe, and we are so happy we did!

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.

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.

Lots of fun social events: golf, tennis, wine tasting, etc. Caring residents who vigorously support good causes: veterans, breast cancer, food drives. There is community support for each other, giving Compass Pointe the feel of an extended family.
