St. James Plantation is a quiet gated community located north of Oak Island just across from the inter coastal waterway. It boasts of 81 holes of private golf for all levels of play. The Members Club, The Founders Club and The Players Club will accept tee times within 5 days in advance to those that wish to play that have been approved by us, the members. A marina, parks and open space areas are available for your enjoyment. The Sand Dollar is about 35 minutes south of Wilmington, 15 minutes from the Oak Island beach area and 20 minutes from downtown Southport.
Also, in the vicinity of St James there are numerous golf courses including but not limited to Cape Fear National, The Thistle, Sandpiper Bay and Carolina National Golf Club. Many courses allow online booking of tee times well in advance of your trip.
Nearby beaches: Popular destinations include Caswell Beach, https://caswellbeach.org/ . There is a public parking lot that can hold up to 35 cars. In addition, the western end of Oak Island provides two places for public beach access at The Point Beach. One is at the end of West Beach Drive. The other is at the end of King’s Lynn Drive. Both offer a scenic natural look and will leave you with a large amount of area in which to settle down for the day. We do recommend getting to the beach early in the day during the season or even later in the afternoon. Oak Island is a popular destination and parking may be limited.
The area is very well served with food, restaurants, sun and fun. Have a great vacation!!
We accommodate and work closely with those that need special scheduling of time when they are building new homes at St. James Plantation.

About Joel Marzi
We live in New England and have chosen the Southport NC area as the area to spend some time during our retirement years.
Joel Marzi purchased this Condo in 2011
Why Joel Marzi chose Saint James
I visited St. James Plantation for the first time in early March 2011. Six weeks later, we were the proud owners of this unit. The beach and golf amenities far surpassed our expectations. St. James is a quiet gated community and is not age-limited. This provides for a cross section of population that we are accustomed to here at home. Southport and the surrounding areas are only going to improve. The cost of living in the area is very affordable and a breath of fresh are as compared to the Northeast. It was a great decision to aquire this property and I encourage those who come here to visit the surrounding area.

I enjoyed my time at Sand Dollar. When I said I wanted to relax and really just enjoy my fiancé company that is exactly what we did. I did have to cut my stay short but every bit of it was superb. Clean spacious relaxing and cozy I LOVED IT!!!!!
A lovely spot for our week at St James
We were down for a week in April to close on our new house in St. James. The Sand Dollar was a great spot to spend the week. It is a second floor unit, and none of the condos at St. James have elevators, so just be aware in case you have any mobility issues. The furnishings were very nice and the kitchen was upgraded with granite counter tops and was fully stocked for every need. The beds were very comfortable and the linens and towels were high quality. We had great WiFi and were able to watch Netflix and other apps on the smart TV. One of the best parts of the experience were the constant and comprehensive communications from the owner, Joel. I would highly recommend this unit!
SkipS: Just want to wish you the best with your new home at St. James Plantation. Thanks for the kind words and hope we run into each other in the future.. JM
Very happy with the condo.
We had a lovely stay and would choose this condo again. We hiked, biked and even golfed a little. While the Hindi is not on the beach, it does provide you with private beach access that is just a short drive away. My husband loved the kitchen and how it was fully stocked with utensils and great pans. I can’t say enough nice things about the place and the owner.
Hi Stacie B. Thanks for the kind words...and the pans....yes....there's nothing like great pans.
Glad you got to play some golf..come again..JM
very nice condo in a great location
We stayed at this condo for one month. We wanted to get away from snow , but not go to Florida. This condo is located in an extremely well kept gated community. It is a very large community of beautiful homes and condos. We got a map at the sales office across the street from St. James Plantation which was extremely helpful. The condo is located close to the marina and is in a very quiet area. The condo itself is nicely decorated and has just about everything you need in the kitchen. The towels are high quality and the king size bed was very comfortable. The condo was well supplied with everything to do laundry, dishwasher soap and all paper products. This was a real plus. If you go out the side gate of St. James it is only 2 miles to Oak Island and the beach. Since we were there in March it was too cold to swim, but the pool at the condo and the club at the beach looked very nice. Southport is approximately 5 miles away and is a lovely historic town to walk around. You can take a little tram tour for $10.00. There are nice restaurants and shops or you can just sit on a swing and watch the boats go up the river. Wilmington is just 30 minutes away or Myrtle Beach 45 minutes. The owner is very helpful and responds quickly to any questions. We had a great month in a lovely location.
Hi Fred C., thanks for taking the time to submit this nice review. We are very happy that you had the time to explore the area and enjoy yourselves!
Convenient location that met expectation
We stayed at this location for ten weeks. Good location - short distance to the beach, lots of great areas to take a walk or ride a bike within the neighborhood; has all the supplies one would need to cook and start your stay (i.e toliet paper, tissue paper, paper towels, cleaning supplies); super nice to have beach chairs available for use; very nice bath towels, extra thick, and plenty of them; plenty of blankets, sheets and pillows. Because we were working remotely, we found the internet to go out regularly which required the wireless router to be rebooted. Keep this in mind if you need connectivity. Furniture is in nice shape, although the sofa and loveseat are starting to fade and the cushions on the loveseat offer little support. The owner is very responsive and a pleasure to work with.
Thanks BJ, happy you enjoyed your stay. TWC will get a call. J
Great location, quiet and clean, near the beach
The condo is very clean and well taken care of. It is in a quiet corner of St James Plantation, we enjoyed walking to nearby Waterway Park and the Marina.It is also close to the wonderful Oak Island beaches and the quaint town of Southport. The owner answered all of our questions and communicated with us in a timely manner. We have been to many VRBO properties, this is a very good one!
Happy you enjoyed your stay Jane Z. Thanks
Located in bustling Southport NC in the St. James Community
