The family-owned, top property in the Americas re-creates an eighteenth-century plantation house, earning it a perfect design score. The estate's "very scenic location" is 15 hillside acres looking onto the Atlantic. Done in earth tones, the perfect-scoring "delectable rooms are beautifully appointed" with four-poster beds, antiques, private terraces, and mahogany soaking tubs. The seafood menu at the Beach Restaurant changes weekly, showcasing dishes like shrimp with passion fruit reduction. Since "service is wondrous all the time," it also scores perfectly.
