Average Rating for this Community

We own a fantastic little condo here right on the golf course. It's the perfect size for us when we're here during the winter months. The community has a ton of amenities and 4 golf courses. My wife and I both golf so we love it! The restaurants are wonderful, the community is really well managed and our condo is perfect. We recommend it to anyone.


We wanted to live close to Southport and the beaches so St. James Plantation was the perfect fit. The clubhouse and amenities make us feel like we are living in a resort every day. The homes are incredible and the builders do a great job.
