Carol53, there are nice homes in both developments and you are in close proximity to Sunset Beach however take a good look at the financial stability of both POA/HOA as both are not doing well. You don't want to end up like the Brick, Marsh Harbor, Angels Trace and the other golf course communities that have had their course go under.

Tidbit Time....

Attended my long awaited first "Cigar Night" last night at the Founders Club, sponsored by Ray of Havana Rays Cigar Shop & Lounge here in Southport. Good attendance, about 60 people out on the huge covered balcony about 15 feet off the ground overlooking a magnificent panoramic view of the marshlands. Very nice buffet of heavy hors d'ouvres, unending supply of Bourbon and Scotch as promised, long ash competition for a tee shirt, a 50-50 drawing for a tee shirt, nice comradery and conversation, plenty of Tommy Bahama silk shirts being sported, 3 nice cigars each in a Havana Ray baggie as promised..... $50 bucks. All in all a great evening in picture perfect weather, 70 degrees and a light breeze off the marsh, no bugs at all.... quite a nice evening here at St James.

Well, they were in a room with a table with all their info, brochures, etc.... then you could go and tour one of their completed homes..... not to put it down.... but..... just like anything else they were a group of competing builders ( about a dozen ) who are "preferred / recommended " by SJP. For this privilege they pay a 3% fee of each house they build for clients that were referred by SJP. Nothing wrong with that, it's just how SJP works it.... and then the builders get a stream of clients and SJP gets another profit center..... also nothing wrong with that. They were nice homes, some were "models" and some were newly occupied by clients, they were all nice people.... all looking for business..... just like the other dozen or so decent builders that are building in SJP and are not willing or able to pay that extra fee / commision to SJP. It was a nice "expo", got to see the finishes on the inside of some of the homes that you cannot ordinarily get into..... also, the people in the occupied homes were there to give recommendations for the builder that built their home..... all in all a nice informative afternoon...... seeing how different builders do their thing.

Default Any downside of a lot backing to a pond?

We are considering purchasing a lot in SJP. We like the idea of backing to a pond / golf course. Any downsides to having a pond beihind your house? Added mosquitos, flooding , wild canoe races .... ?

Regarding the Arbor Creek question.... I had occasion to visit the P.O.A office this afternoon, while there I asked about it. The developer of St James also owned that parcel which just happens to be shaped like that as a sort of "peninsula" into the St James property. About 20 years ago he went into partnership with another developer on that parcel and developed Arbor Creek which is soley homes and no amenities. About the same time he was putting St James together and a "while" later the partner took over Arbor Creek and our guy concentrated on St James..... so the story goes.
