Marina St JamesWe hear this over and over as we talk to friends and residents of St. James, NC: The marina is their favorite place to be!

The St James Marina, which resides along the Intracoastal Waterway in sunny southeastern NC, is home to a wealth of amenities that any water lover would appreciate.  And, we at Hamilton Realty Group of Carolinas Connect Realty would like to introduce you to a few things that make the marina so wonderful….

The St. James Marina
The marina is home to 155 wet slips and offers dry stack storage for up to 320 boats.  The facility is full-service, which means the amazing crew will launch your boat when you’re ready, fuel it up, clean it when you’re finished with your day trip to Southport, and store it securely for you until the next excursion.

Harborside MarketplaceThe beautiful building that wraps around the St. James Marina is Harborside, home to marina-view condominiums, a market, The Dockmaster’s Office, The Artisans Gallery and Tommy Thompson’s Grille (which we’ll mention in a minute!) At the market, grab everything you need for a day on the water, including gourmet sandwiches, wine and beer, snacks and an amazing salad bar.  Ice cream, too!

The Artisans Gallery
The gallery is home to the handmade creations of the St. James Artisans, a successful (and creative) group of St. James residents who display their works of art for folks to purchase.  From oil paintings, photography and jewelry, to amazing scarves and sculptures, you’ll be amazed and inspired!

Tommy Thompson’s Grille Tiki Bar
You’ll love the sunsets from the large porch that offers plenty of outdoor, shady seating AND great live entertainment during the season.  The menu’s not too bad, either!  Breakfast, lunch and dinner is available most days of the week. The Tiki Bar has a big screen to catch the game…or turn around and catch the views!
