As you know, we recently had a casting call for a Compass Pointe photoshoot. We have chosen our resident models and now the fun can begin! On the 14th and 15th we will be conducting our professional photoshoot around the community! So, what’s the plan??
It’s all about the outdoors! We’re starting the day by having our models enjoy the benefits of living in a golf cart community! Loading up for the pool, driving by talking to neighbors, and residents walking on the wide, beautiful roads, sidewalks, and bridges.
In the afternoon it’ll be all about the Grand Lanai and Resort Oasis. Our models will get decked out for fun in the sun to show off the joys of having a resort-style pool with cabanas and outdoor grilling areas!
We’ll be starting the day with some outdoor shots of the neighborhood but then focus more strongly on the gorgeous interiors of our homes and the Grand Lanai!
The afternoon will be about the men, featuring shots of them having a blast in the “man cave” in one of our model homes! We’ll then have our models gather inside the Grand Lanai to show off the awesome grill and bars.
We can’t wait; we know both days are going to be a blast not only for us, but for our resident models!! We’ll be sure to give you a behind-the-scenes look at our photoshoot, and eventually a peek at the finalized shots!
Is there anything special about Compass that you’d like to see featured in the photoshoot? Let us know what you think!

There’s lots of celebratory fun to be had this weekend as Saturday is the 139th Kentucky Derby and Sunday is Cinco de Mayo! What better place to celebrate than our very own Grand Lanai?
The Grand Lanai is open for our residents to use whenever they please! We have multiple large bars, amazing grills, tons of seating, multiple flat screen TVs (including the huge big screen!), and of course, the pool!!
Saturday – The Kentucky Derby:
Come on in and flip the TVs onto the Kentucky Derby! Watch all the exciting updates as the race is counted down to! Make bets with your friends and use the grills to make burgers, hot dogs, and any other delicious foods you have in mind! Lay out by the pool in the afternoon while you wait for all the action. As of right now, Saturday’s forecast is sunny and in the 70s!
Sunday – Cindo de Mayo:
Celebrate Cinco de Mayo like you’re in Cabo San Lucas! Feel free to deck out the lanai with balloons, bring in chips and salsa, mix up some margaritas, prepare tacos, quesadillas, fajitas, and other Mexican dishes, and listen to Mariachi musica! Nothing welcomes Cinco de Mayo like our palm trees, cabanas, and luxury swimming pool. Spend the day on a “Mexican vacation” with your friends, family, and neighbors. Chance of rain? That won’t stop you from having a tropical blast inside the lanai!
Excited for the race?? Check out this list of all the horses, their post positions, and their odds! Who do you want to see win? Planning on a Cinco de Mayo celebration? Plan ahead with these tasty recipes!
