I spent over three years researching where I wanted to retire, and I selected Compass Pointe. I have lived there for four years now, and it has exceeded my expectations in every respect. I have felt at home there since day one. The people are especially friendly and there are always many activities and clubs in which to participate. The developers have done a great job of creating excellent facilities and a beautiful environment. I also really enjoy being near the lovely city of Wilmington, NC.

This community is what I call a "family" community. People here help one another in times of need. In addition, it is the community that works together by establishing all of the various committees for residents to be a part of and to make Compass Pointe the great place it is. Residents also help and support various organizations and the surrounding county to make the whole area better for all people. The Developer Mr. Harrellson and Mr. Exum are just the most honest and caring developers that you will ever want to know, and to be a part their vision of Compass Pointe is an honor. The developers also support many of the fund raising events the community hosts and want Compass Pointe to be a place of Peace, Comfort, and enjoyable Lifestyle for their residents. How many other developers can you this about.

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.

It feels like a big family here. There is always something to do, the wellness center, the grand lanai, bowling leagues, group trips and many other activities. We are close to Wilmington and have access to theater, concerts and classes at the university. It truly is "A Wonderful Life"!!

Wonderful Amenities and the developers, builders and residents are very involved in, not only planning events for the residents but the entire community is very involved in sponsoring and participating in a multitude of recognizable charitable events within the surrounding area. The residents of our Compass Pointe community are very proud to provide assistance to those who are less fortunate or experiencing financial economic strain within their family.

The Developers have done everything that they promised! The 18 championship golf course opens this year! Maybe the best thing about Compass Pointe is the people. They are warm and friendly and oh so sociable. There is always something to do either on campus or a short 10 minute drive away in Wilmington!

Right from day 1 when we purchased our land, the people living in Compass Pointe were introducing themselves to us, inviting us over for coffee to let us know how happy they are here and the constant waving everyone does!! We truly are like a family. Everyone seems to watch out for one another. Even our security guards are not just friendly but very attentive to the comings and goings inside our community. We love it and believe anyone that moves here will as well!!
