At one point in the past there was a sign that said "St. James by the Sea" on the corner of 72nd Street and Oak Island Drive. I assumed that it referred to our beach club, the entrance to the parking lot is on 72nd street. The sign was there in 2003 when I moved here but it subsequently disappeared. Those homes are on that block. It's a mystery. bill

Well, further investigation reveals that the properties mentioned above are part of a beach community called "St. James by the Sea" created by the same developer as St. James Plantation.

Default St. James by the Sea

Yet it has no connection to THE St. James Plantation---nor is there a street by that name on Oak Island----I do remember there was a section of lots on the south side of Oak Island that were supposed to be a small enclave called "Turtle" something, that never got off the ground after building a few upscale homes. Still puzzling to me.

Well in fact they have membership access to the St. James Beach Club. The block between 71st st and 72nd st encompasses the aforementioned houses and once had a sign that read "St. James by the Sea". At the end of that block on the beach is our beach club.

Bill, thank you for your investigation

Do you know how many homes are in this development? Are they "spec" homes or is the developer selling lots?

There is no HOA fee, just a beach house fee of 420.00? Any access to other amenities in St James?

Thanks for the info

Well it looks like Lowes Food will start construction in 2 weeks at the Midway Rd/Rte 211 site..

I'd rather have a Harris Teeter but Lowes will do.

Default Unexpected Surprise

We made a trip up the east coast looking for a place to retire. We figured now would be a good time to buy since the housing market has taken a crash. We traveled from Fl to NC stopping at various places along the way. To be honest St James was not really at the top of our list but it was a good stopping point, and since we agreed to take the "packaged tour" it was very inexpensive. We expected a high pressure pitch but instead we got a coupon for a very nice dinner at one of the clubs, a round of golf, tennis on the clay courts, a day at a very nice private beach club and three days in a beautiful condo in the marina. All this for less than $400. Well, it worked. We bought a lot in the marina at what I believe was a very good price and we hope to retire in a few years.

If you are interested I would suggest you sign up for the tour. It only lasted a couple of hours; the rest of the time we were left to explore the community and enjoy the facilities on our own. At least in our experience there was NO pressure to buy. For us the place sold itself.
