Have lived here four years and absolutely love it; great amenities, but more importantly, great people. Enjoy being near the ocean but far enough inland. Wilmington is a wonderful city and you are only two hours away from Raleigh.

The neighborhoods are friendly and we get together frequently. We just enjoy each others company. In addition to the organized activities sponsored by the Compass Pointe community, some of the neighbors have started their own organized games (i.e. Bunco). As you walk the sidewalks, everyone stops to greet one another and converse. Also, as one drives through the community, almost everyone waves - - car drivers, golf cart drivers, and pedestrians alike.

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!!

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.
