With a front-row seat by the Atlantic Ocean and a private boardwalk down to the beach, this address is worth a visit purely for the location alone. However, even if the home was slap-bang in the middle of nowhere, the opulent design and endless list of amenities would still have the power to wow even the most discerning of guests.
Before you even get around to stepping inside, guests will discover a swimming pool bordered by imported Italian porcelain tiles and plenty of loungers on which to soak up the South Carolina sunshine. Elsewhere, you get the run of a seven-person saltwater spa, plus a pretty impressive outdoor kitchen for cooking in the open air.
When you eventually get around to heading inside, we can guarantee you won't be disappointed. There's a quite simply lavish amount of space, filled with natural light from the floor-to-ceiling windows that line the walls. The sleek corner kitchen is a thing of beauty, as are the huge bathrooms with freestanding bathtubs.
The two top floors both have balconies that are blessed with gorgeous ocean views and as is plain to see, you can be bathing in that very water in the space of a minute if you put your head to it. Elsewhere on Hilton Head Island, there's a huge choice of golf courses, while Sea Pines Forest Reserve is only ten minutes' drive away if you prefer to enjoy nature without the charade of sport.
