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.

Convenient location that met expectation

  • 4 of 5

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.

  • 4 of 5

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!
