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.

• At CP there is always some type of social or physical activity to do. A person can get involved in as much or as little as they wish. We are close to cultural and performing arts centers as well as beaches.

Compass Pointe os a friendly, beautiful community. Its proximity to the city of Wilmington provides residents with theatre, museums, river walk, fabulous restaurants all within a 10 minute drive. Compass Pointe is a lovely pleasant place to reside. Being a gated community, it gives residents the feeling that they are safe, secure and residing in a tropical resort. The amenities are top notch and you get a lot for your HOA dues! The developers are reliable and resourceful. Everything that has been promised is coming to fruition. Most importantly is that the people who reside in CP are kind, friendly and thoughtful people. The residents make kit a fun place to live. There is something for everyone to do. ANd yet, they are serious about giving back to society. So many of our residents volunteer in local schools, county offices, Manna Ministries, etc. We feel blessed to live here.

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"!!
