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!

We have been in the community for over five years, one of the first to build and move it. We have seen the community grow and truly appreciate the developer's vision and decisions in expanding the community. Many of new communities have failed because the developer spends too much on amenities up front, without enough reserves to continue through soft times. Our developer has planned for the future. Additionally, the care taken in the community as far as common area landscaping is special. The community really shows off during each season! And the owners take pride in the community as well; insuring that their homes are well taken care of. We love Compass Pointe, we love our Logan home!

We love it because there was no pressure to buy or live here. It's gated and you can drive a golf cart any where in the community and the majority of the people who moved here are here for the warmth and golf.

A large majority of families moving to Compass Pointe are from northern states and either retired or near retirement and are weary of the long winters there. The coastal NC weather is perfect for our mentality - still experiencing the 4 seasons but not at the length of the extremes. The cost of homes and the amenities along with the friendliness of the residents are "icing on the cake".

The Compass Pointe residents care about each other so much and are so friendly. Everyone has a friendly wave as you pass them along the roads. They also are so helpful when a fellow resident has a medical or other one of life's challenges. Furthermore, our community has a Benevolence Group that promotes active support of local citizens in need outside of our own gate. In sum, Compass Pointe is large enough to be able to sustain a wide variety of activities and clubs, but it is small enough that residents know and appreciate each others gifts and talents. To us, it is the best of all possible communities!!!
