Property Owner Reviews

Property Owner: Anonymous
Compass Pointe is the happiest community because of the friendliness of its residents who look after each other and respond generously to their neighbors in need of anything (even as simple as a hug or a wave, or a check-in call). Our neighbors also have a lot of fun at club activities, special events, the The Pointe Fitness Center, or at the swimming pool near the Grand Lanai. Time and time again, our visitors from near and far are amazed at the happiness and friendliness of our residents. It is not surprising that so many of our newcomers are friends and relatives of existing residents --- they simply want to join in on the fun and happiness that they have felt firsthand at Compass Pointe.

Incredibly friendly community. Everyone is helpful and willing to share information. Love the informal and casual get togethers. Many activities within CP including the ability to start your own. Proximity to Wilmington is great. Love the arts and all that's offered through UNCW.

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.

The community has all of the requirements we moved to North Carolina for our retirement. It is not a senior only community. It has all of the amenities we asked for. Also, we have such a caring community. If anyone is in need, the whole community comes together to help. In addition, each year, we as a community raise significant dollars for several charities to include DAV and Pretty In Pink
