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 North Carolina

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.

This condo exceeded our expectations. The price was very reasonable. The condo was beautiful and comfortable and located in a perfect location within St. James Plantation. St. James is a beautiful place with amazing facilities. We enjoyed biking all over the community, lunch at the marina, and being so close to the beach. The owners were very accommodating and went out of their way to make sure that we had all that we needed to enjoy our vacation. We expect to return to the area every year and will not need to look any further for accommodations.

St. James Plantation

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the St. James plantation was lovely. It is a serene and beautiful spot to stay. The Condo we stayed in is clean and well organized. The Beach club next to the ocean is also a great place to visit and utilize one which our whole family enjoyed. I would not hesitate to stay here again. The owners were extremly helpful and answered any questions we had. The listing of the property was very accurate regarding location, layout and amenities.

It was clean and we were able to make ourselves at home. We enjoyed visiting the pools and the beach club. We will return! Thank you Joel!
