In addition, there are a plethora of pooch pampering palaces in the area and there are several pooch pampering coaches that deliver their services to your front door.... also several pooch camps for boarding purposes.

Love your descriptive writing style! And the added info is setting my heart to singing. I see a quick scouting visit in my near future.

We are finally building our dream home in SJP. We bought our property in 2014 and should be breaking ground in January. A few questions as we are entering into this process. We are on a cul-de-sac in the Harborwest section. Is there anything we should review with the site superintendent when we meet in January? Should we have a water treatment system installed or is that something that is unnecessary? We have intention to join the clubs, but want to know if we join Premiere will we have access to the Seaside Pool? Who provides garbage cans/ recycle cans? Do we have to purchase certain types? Does anyone have a landscaping company they recommend? and Housecleaning company? What are your cable and telephone company options/recommendations? Appreciate any advice you can offer. Can't wait to be a part of the St. James Community. We have been coming down to visit for 5 years and it already feels like home.

Can't offer any information you are seeking, just wanted to wish you the best on your dream home. We recently visited St. James, as I have been looking for the past year at the possibility of retiring to that community. It is a beautiful place for sure, just not my cup of tea as the restrictions are more than I can bare. Again, best wishes to you and yours, we have a few more years to go

Beer belly, SJP not for everyone certainly, but interested in which restrictions were "more that you could bare"?

We bought a lot last summer after a very extensive search spanning 3 years of dozens of communities.

daynab, if you look back a couple pages I asked the same question on water treatment and had some solid responses you might want to review.

On the internet front, the newer parts of SJP have now received fiber optic, so that will be extremely quick service.

Good luck with the build. Have you selected your builder yet?

Steve

From what I was told, you cannot leave a car parked in your driveway overnight, was one of them....a little too petty for me. Still, a beautiful community, and the Club House is stunning.

Well.... I suppose I'll get flamed for this one .... but I have to say it anyway .... just exactly how gullible does someone have to be to actually believe such a stupid / ridiculous statement as " you can't park your car in your own driveway overnight " .... made by a stranger .... and most likely at the Tiki Bar ........ and then make a decision on where to live out your years based on such a ridiculous statement without even verifying it ...... ok now have at it.

This is what I was told by the realtor. There is also no on site storage for a Coach or a Boat. I did have a place with a very strict HOA that would not allow a car parked within the complex if it had any primer paint....not even in your driveway. Also could not park RV in driveway for more than 2 hours. No commercial vehicles.....owner of a Plumbing company removed the magnetic signs from his van ( did not look like a commercial type), but had a hood deflector that had " Snakeman " on it and got fined every month

Well BB ...... you CAN park a car in the driveway .... but all the rest you mention do apply here in St James and thank goodness they have these rules .... they are what keep the hillbillies and riff raff out.
