We're considering retirement in Brunswick County, and notice there are several nice communities in the area with St. James and Brunswick being the largest.

We plan to make a trip down in the near future, but would like to have as much preliminary homework done as possible.

I just wondering if any of you folks have actually visited them all, and done a good comparison.

If so, is it possible you could outline some of the major pluses, minuses, and costs between them.

Thank you.

Default Brunswick County Retirement Communities

Check out Crow Creek which is next to Brunswick on US 17.

There are so many factors to consider. Do you want to build a new home or buy an existing one? Do you want to be very close to a beach or is a 30 min. drive OK? Do you want to be close to a large town, small town, or have a more remote setting? Two communities I like are Compass Pointe and Winding River. Crow Creek has a very nice golf course but I have not visited the community.

Both the communities you mentioned, St James and Brunswick (Forest), are very large communities. They both have golf and clubs. If you are looking to be closer to the beach (6 mintues) and direct Intracoastal waterway access within the community (plus the CH with pool fitness) you might want to check out Waterway Cove at Ocean Isle Beach. Extremely low HOA and low maintenance.

Good luck!
