We stayed at the Shipwatch Condos close to the marina. This place has everything for an active family. Marina with dry storage, 81 holes of golf. My husband played The Reserve a Nicholas course. We ate at several of their restaurants. They are all good. We really loved the Players Club restaurant- outstanding lamb shank meal! Indoor pool and huge... More

So this is in the 'attraction' section for Southport and should not even be on trip advisor. It is a housing community and it is very private, gated, and you will not be allowed to enter, even to just drive around and look at any views. So why do people keep reviewing it? Probably just because they like saying how... More

Beautifully maintained grounds, restaurants and facilities! Good values on homes. Nice flat roads good for bike riding. Property owners involved and interested to keep things proper. Not for everyone, but if you are considering moving here, certainly best to visit in different seasons and talk with many people who live in Saint James. Some even rent a place for a... More

This was such a beautiful place. The homes here and the grounds are breath taking from the golf courses to the club houses St. James has it all. Eat out on the deck by the Marina at Tommy Thomson's Grill or stop down at the private beach. I love it here.

This is a fabulous area with lots to do if you're a boater and/or golfer! Hoke Flynt was an exceptional tour guide into the area & we were so impressed with his knowledge and expertise -- it definitely is one of our top choices to retire -- it is second to none in their amenity package. You should check it... More

Very nice with great amenities, 5 pools, a beach access club, several restaurants. Felt the home prices were reasonable for the size and quality of the homes.

That is EXACTLY why St. James should NOT be listed as a destination on Trip Advisor......because you cannot get in unless you live there.....so why is it the #2 destination in Southport? Ridiculous......avoid this place like the plague because you won't be able to get in even to drive around.

I LIVE HERE AND THE OPPRESSIVE POA IS OUT OF CONTROL. The POA is hell bent on rule making and controlling individuals. If you want to plant a tomato plant in your backyard you need to get approval from the ACC at a cost of $150.They have a squad of volunteers spying to turn anyone in who doesn't play by... More

A great place for golf, incredibly quiet and relaxing I've come to St James twice in two years, invited by friends who retired there... and I must say it's good to have the chance of being 'in the bubble' ! Very nice golf courses, very well maintained, never crowded: my preference goes to the Reserve and its challenging holes, but... More
