• 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.

Property Owner: Ron
today a neighbor found money in the cart path lane. They put it on our web page any place else that person would just walk away with the money. As you drive down the road everybody waves whether you know that person or not even to the workers we wave.

Relaxed lifestyle, beautiful neighborhoods, friendly neighbors. Minutes from downtown Wilmington and easy drive to five area beaches. Wonderful community for retirees and growing families. Searched for five years before deciding on Compass Pointe, and we are so happy we did!

Everything in Compass Pointe is great. The people, houses, maintenance, proximity to Wilmington's river walk, and Wrightsville Beach, combined with excellent weather and low taxes makes this development a must-visit location for anyone considering relocation.

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.

From the very start, every family who moved in was eager to make this community a success, and to promote it to all their friends and neighbors. There may be some who are not 100% satisfied with the way of life at Compass Pointe, but I can't imagine any other community with the percentage of happy folks that we have!
