Local Expert.pngFrom the moment we entered the gates of St. James on our very first visit, we knew we had found someplace special. What immediately set it apart from other communities we had explored was both the natural beauty of the community and its waterside setting, and that fact that it was alive with people enjoying exactly the type of active coastal resort atmosphere we were looking for, and the friendly waves and smiles that greeted us at every turn, made us instantly feel at home.

With over 150 special interest clubs and charities, and very active POA Social Committee, there is always something to do, and with multiple pools, clubhouses, sports facilities, and a private beach club, you can easily choose to be as active, or inactive, as you choose to be.

One of our favorite things to do is to take our beach chairs and a cooler of goodies and cruise on over to the Beach Club and relax on the sand and raise a glass to toast another day of living the dream…

St. James Plantation North Carolina Weather

St. James Plantation is tucked on the western edge of Southport, which is statistically the warmest place in North Carolina. The average yearly temperature is a balmy 65 degrees. Golf on one of the many private St. James Plantation courses is not out of the question even in December and January, and residents often bundle up for an evening around the firepit in the winter. St. James is close to the Atlantic coast, so it can feel the impact of storms, hurricanes, and other wind events, but snowstorms are definitely not a threat!

Local Expert.pngAdam - Headshot (Final).jpg Pizza may not be the selling point for living in St. James Plantation, but residents are fond of the story of D's Italian Restaurant versus Falcone's Italian Restaurant - both of which are in Southport. The owners each used to be married, and together they owned D's. When they divorced, the wife opening Falcones. Now everyone picks a side.

There is plenty to do right in St. James Plantation, and residents socialize regularly - visiting neighbors via golf cart - so it's not difficult to leave your car in the garage for days.
