Remember a vacation that made you smile? This is your next one! When planning a vacation, I spend lot of time weighing important options because there are so many choices that it can be confusing. I don’t want to compromise on things that matter and you shouldn’t either. I think that the more you know about our St. James condo, the easier it will be for you to agree with me that it is not just the basic features, the number of beds and bathrooms that contribute to your sense of well being but whether or not you and your family smile and make good memories while you are sharing time together.
You will find yourself in a well appointed and professionally decorated condo at Marshwinds Villa in St. James Plantation. This floor plan is unique because there are two separate keyed entrances with an open floor plan that is the heart of the unit and allows you to prepare meals and enjoy family time all at once. The main living area opens with sliding doors to a private screened porch where you can relax and enjoy early morning coffee or lunch. The Master bedroom has queen-size bed and adjoining bath. Laundry room includes a washer and dryer. The second bedroom has two double beds, a breakfast bar with microwave, refrigerator and full bathroom . There is a private swimming pool less than 100 feet outside the front door, well within the range of a baby monitor if you have a small child that still naps in the afternoon. The extra benefit is that we are on the first floor so time and energy is not spent carrying suitcases and groceries up extra flights of stairs.
If you are not happy with what you'r doing, you need to talk with us about spending some time at the beach or playing golf. There are many activities in the surrounding area that appeal to all ages. I’m content and totally relaxed at the private St. James Beach and Clubhouse located on Oak Island. All I need is my bottled water and my sunglasses, a favorite book and lounge chair. However my husband is a member of the 6:00 Club that only gets up early when he has a tee time to play golf. St. James Plantation has been rated the number one Coastal Community in the Carolinas. Amenities include 81 holes of championship golf with courses designed by Nicklaus, Hale Irwin, Pete Dye and Tim Cate. There is a course that appeals to every level of player.
You have the choice of tennis courts, a marina on the intercostal waterway that is an easy walk from the condo, a fitness center, parks, a dog park, walking/biking trails, several outdoor swimming pools, restaurants, an oceanfront beach club with pool, picnic tables and a private bathhouse. The marina is the best spot for watching sunsets. St. James Plantation is located on the intercoastal waterway, not on the Atlantic Ocean, however they do have private beachfront property on Oak Island. If you choose you can slow down and step back in time and tour Southport, a lovely seaside town at the mouth of the Cape Fear River and enjoy a gourmet dinner featuring the best local seafood. We offer long term rentals for those who can't tear themselves away.
St, James Plantation is gated, private waterfront community that offers security that is unmatched in a coastal enviroment.
Peaceful, quiet retreat, conveniently located just minutes from CASWELL, HOLDEN and OAK ISLAND beaches and historic downtown SOUTHPORT,NC. Just 44 miles to MYRTLE BEACH. Short drive to WILMINGTON, NC
What an outstanding location for a small family vacation! Out of the summertime hubbub of Southport/Oak Island, St. James is still close enough to enjoy the amenities of both - or not, as one desires. Pool, beach, marina, playgrounds, security, peace and quiet, it doesn't get much better for a place to kick back and relax. We found the condo well-located, neat, clean, and well appointed. The screened porch was great for early coffee or a late adult beverage, the full cable and DVD perfect for those rainy days or late evenings.
While we did not play golf, you can't go anywhere within The Plantation without running into one of the three gorgeous courses! The pool right across the drive received significant use, and what a great facility at the beach. Showers, changing rooms, freshwater pool, covered deck, beach access, and parking! The marina is the greatest bargain in the area, and only a half mile from the condo. We leased a dry slip for 6 months and never once had a problem getting into or out of the water when desired. The location is on the Intracoastal between Cape Fear and Lockwood Folly making it convenient to either depending on winds and where the fish were biting.
Thanks for providing such a wonderful place. We hope to return again and again. And did I mention the beach parking? Jimmy G.
